  • Pompeii Guided Walking Tour With Entrance Ticket

    1. Pompeii Guided Walking Tour With Entrance Ticket

    Get ready to explore the excavation site where, gradually over the last few centuries, the Ancient Roman town has been uncovered. Many of its landmarks are remarkably well-preserved after being buried by volcanic ash for nearly 2 millennia. On this walking tour, you will discover what everyday life was like for a Roman in the town and you will see the Forum, the Thermal Baths, Lupanare, and even streets with shops displaying signs selling produce including wine. With the help of a professional guide, you will learn more about the history of this town and what happened on that day in 79 AD when the nearby Mount Vesuvius erupted.

    The tour was great, instant confirmation, everything clear about the meeting point. The guide spoke really good English and we all had earphones, so that we can all hear her well. The guide also had a lot of information and pictures to share. It was a very well organized tour, we didn't wait anywhere for too long and it was designed to truly get the maximum out of those two hours and see and learn as much as you can. I'm very happy to have chosen this company and this tour. Pompeii ruins are amazing and really a must-see place. It is incredible how well preserved it is and how even today it looks like a city with streets, houses. It's not like other archeological places, where you recognize just bits and pieces, here you really get a feeling of how the life looked like.

    Francesco was amazing! The tour we received was above and beyond anything we had expected. When we walked out from our hotel at 7:30, he was standing, in a suit and tie, waiting for us. I told him we wanted to grab some food real quick, and he said he would take us to Sorrento to have breakfast. And that was the first of many surprises. He was incredibly knowledgeable, the litany of facts and trivia he was producing was amazing. And he is a proud Resident of Naples as well, he even took us on a tour of his neighborhood and schools he attended! The trip was fantastic, certainly the best tour we had this trip (and we took several).

Such an amazing, knowledgeable tour! Had a bit of rain and got a bit wet but it was all part of a great experience (maybe pack an umbrella as they don’t sell them inside. Good for sun or rain!). We dropped luggage at the entry of the Pompeii site and all was good. Thanks again!

Fantastic driver, Francesco, that made us feel comfortable and was both eager to guide and give us time to explore. The guide at Pompeii, Diego, was also extremely good and made the tour very lively. 2 hours just seemed too little to tell all the exciting stories.

We absolutely loved our guide! Ricardo was very informative and passionate about Pompeii. Even at the end of the tour he suggested things to see that he thought was interesting. You’ll be lucky to have him as a guide!

Ornela was very good in explaining every thing to us, and both her and the drivers were very friendly.
