An exciting encounter with history. The visit was well organized from start to finish and our guide-archaeologist Paola was a pleasant and very competent escort. More than 5 captivating hours despite the hot June day. My invitation is also addressed to other "curious" about culture (even if not experts like myself) to let themselves be guided in this positive experience.

Excellent tour!! Pompeii & Herculaneum are both fascinating and we’re particularly brought to life by our passionate guide Diego. He really made the day for us, best guide we’ve had it Italy. He was fun & knowledgeable. Thanks Diego! I would also say the tour is well structured, giving time for lunch etc.

We visited Pompeii and Herculaneum with Nello, a prepared, friendly and helpful guide. A really interesting and immersive experience! Really recommended to fully appreciate the historical and cultural value of the two sites.

Sergio is a very knowledgable and dedicated guide who showed us the forum, temples, theatres, public baths, a backery and thermopolium as well as many luxury villae. Thank you for this incredible experience. Katarina

Michele was a great guide. Funny and really knew a lot about everything, he patiently answered every question and otherwise told incredibly exciting things. Would recommend this tour to anyone!
