I can only summarize our tour with Gaetano one way. Incredibly awesome! We spent 5 weeks throughout Europe and took many different tours with many different tour guides, none compared to the tour you gave us at Pompeii. Your passion and knowledge brought the city to life and even kept 17 & 14 year old girls interested and excited. When... More

We toured Pompeii and Positano with Gaetano's Pompeii Tours on July 9th (2 adults, 2kids 13 and 7 years old). Gaetano's Tripadvisor page is full of praise and we whole-heartedly agree with all the 5 star ratings. Gaetano is not only extremely knowledgeable but he is also very engaging and presents Pompeii with such enthusiasm. Walking with him you don't... More

Gaetano's tour of Pompeii is wonderful! I contacted Gaetano via email a few months before our trip and fortunately he had an opening. Definitely book in advance as he is in high demand. The booking process was seamless. We traveled with friends and had 4 adults and three teenagers. Our teens were captivated by the tour. Gaetano brings Pompeii to... More

Gaetano's tour is much more than a tour, its an experience. He really makes you feel what it was like in Pompeii. Amazing!!!! Daniel, his driver to the Amalfi Coast was fantastic. Entertaining, excellent suggestions, really made our trip the best!!!

I found Gaetano Manfredi's information through the Rick Steve's guidebook and saw he is also recommended by the BBC. After touring Pompeii with Gaetano I understand why. We are a family of four with twin 11 year old boys who arrived in Naples for one day on a cruise. We did a semi-private tour with another family. Gaetano was amazing.... More

Gaetano's passion and respect for Pompeii are evident throughout the whole tour. He made Pompeii come alive for us (seven in our group) and listening to his words let us visualize the day to day life in Pompeii. His humour and enthusiasm left us with a lasting impression. Thanks Gaetano.

As a college professor who, for more than 20 years, annually teaches an art and humanities class, I routinely include a tour of the excavations at Pompeii. Although I provide the lectures for the remainder of the class, I always retain Gaetano's services for our tour of Pompeii. Out of the hundreds of students I have taught, never has one... More

Terrific. Engaging. Wonderful. Not sure, who enjoyed Gaetano's tour of Pompeii more, the children or adults. We were two families traveling and booked Gaetano's tour. A van picked us up in Sorrento with all our luggage (later to be dropped off at the Naples Central Station). We traveled along the Amalfi coast with a terrific driver, Daniel, stopping in Positano...

I traveled to Italy in late May, 2015. I have taken Gaetano's Pompeii Tours several times before and am always delighted with the knowledge and energy he imparts of the volcanic ruins and the lifestyle of the early Romans that inhabited the area. Each time I take the tour, he shares new information that has been unearthed since the previous... More

You could spend 2 days in Pompeii and not get out of it what you do from Gaetano. He was very knowledgeable and the consummate professional. No line waiting, all the best photo ops and a wonderfully guided tour. Highly recommended!! The drive through Positano and the Amalfi Coast was absolutely wonderful as well.
