I had an excellent tour with Paola, in the small group tour. We had about 12 people in our group, and she was able to show us a bunch of the highlights, and since Pompeii is far larger than a couple hours on a tour could show, she also did a great job of making recommendations of what additional places to see for the rest of the day based on personal interests. The meet up in the morning at the gate was easy and friendly, we quickly made it through the queues at the gate (because we already had tickets), and got started immediately. Our tour ended up going a little longer than booked (no complaints there), and we saw a lot -- and I spent another 3 hours on my own exploring the site afterward, with plenty of things left to see on a future visit.
everything was well organised and we had an overall delightful experience with our archaeologist-guide. we spent almost 3 extra hours after the end of the tour, to stroll around, revisit some of the places in our own pace and discover some of the buildings that weren’t included in the activity.
The tour was very interesting and the guide was great. He had many stories for us and tips on what to see after the tour. we had to reschedule our tour because of an emergency and the agency was very available and helpful.
Wonderful guide with lots of great info. I highly recommend a guided tour - without a knowledgeable guide, it would’ve been very confusing.
Our guide was expert. In 2 hours we have a very good picture of Pompeii and his history.
