Francesco was an awesome guide and we are very happy that we did that tour. He picked us up in front of Pompeji on time, was very knowledgeable, gave a great spirit with his music choice while driving up the Vesuvius and he really did a great job on the walk the way up. He kept the group together and made frequent stops to explain something so that everybody had enough time to catch breath again without the feeling to be the „slow“ one. You can feel that he is a great guide that enjoys what he does. It took about 30 min up and middle of Sept temperature was just fine. In the end he even dropped us off on the way back close to our accommodation what was great and not a matter of course as we experienced the next day. Thank you Francesco!

Very good experience! Anne our archaeologist guide is adorable, competent and passionate. My driver guide Catello is the soul of Naples. Very pleasant to listen to (as a guide too), nice car, friendly…, we don't see the round trip going. I recommend this experience although a little short with all there is to see and understand. 9.5 / 10

Francesco was amazing! We couldn’t have wished for a better tour guide. He was really well informed, funny, motivating and a great DJ! We had a great vibe and our tour couldn’t have been more perfect. Thank you for the great experience, Francesco :)
