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.

This was a wonderful tour by a great tour guide. Gaetano is very knowledgeable and passionate about the history and sites of Pompeii. He has devoted his life to the study of this wonderful city and it shows in the depth of his knowledge and in his enthusiasm. He made sure our children were engaged in the tour and they... More

Our tour with Gaetano was organized through a larger "Amalfi Coast & Pompeii Day Trip" excusrion, however Gaetano's Pompeii tour was definitely the highlight. The man knows Pompeii and he speaks as though he is a direct descendant of the original inhabitants. He is extremely knowledgeable and his tour was instrumental in bringing the ancient city to life.
