We met our guide at the meeting point without any difficulty at all. She was really informative and knew all the best things to see in the limited time we had available. Having visited Pompeii before without a guide, we were very pleased to have a guide on this visit. I would very strongly recommend this trip.

Book this NOW! Lello was the most captivating, knowledgeable and entertaining tour guide we have ever had the pleasure of having. His energy is simply unmatched, and he really brought the city to life with a mix of applied learning (testing the acoustics of the theater!), historical and architectural facts. Thank you so much for an unforgettable experience!

Me and my partner paid for this tour and it’s 100% worth the money. Francesca was our guide and she was amazing, really funny and didn’t just point stuff out and say this is this and this is that, she really knew her stuff and made the time go so quickly. Definitely worth the extra money, we learnt so much!
