Our day trip was indeed a success. We continued to reflect upon and discuss our ancient Pompeii experience for the rest our trip. The Amalfi Coast provided some of the most breathtaking views and beautiful pictures of our entire Italian vacation. Our driver, Demitre, was engaging, knowledgeable, and accommodating. I've recommended Gaetano already - to fellow travelers during our trip... More

I am a travel agent and always book Gaetano when I am bringing a group to Pompeii. He brings Pompeii to life. You can actually visualize what life was like there. He is the only guide you should consider......He does not disappoint.....

OK - so you are thinking about Gaetano’s Pompeii Tour - well - STOP THINKING ABOUT IT AND CONTACT HIM RIGHT NOW! If you are lucky he will be available and then you too will have the wonderful experience we had. If possible, arrange to take your tour with Gaetano right when Pompeii opens in the morning. That was what... More

A private tour with Gaetano is the only way to see Pompeii. He makes history come alive with his extensive knowledge and his deep interest in sharing it with you. Gaetano's tour was the highlight of our trip to Italy. Hire him! You won't be disappointed, I promise.

This was our second tour with Gaetano and it was even more amazing than the first. He knew what we had seen before and gave us a more in-depth tour that expanded on our previous visit. I wish all our tour guides in other places could be like him - fun, witty, yet with very in-depth information. We brought my... More

Just returned from Italy and Gaetano's tour of Pompeii was by far the most interesting and enjoyable by far. In short, he is great! Most of my tour guides were good but Gaetano's true love of Pompeii's history is evident from the start. He is worth the money in my estimate.

Not only is Gaetano a wonderful tour guide, he is also a wonderful person. When we were in the process of booking this day trip on line I had requested a different day for our tour. Gaetano politely pointed out that the day I was asking for was also a day when there would be a good number of cruise... More

Gaetano is entertaining and informative! He treats/pampers you like a special guest and is more than happy to assist you with special requests. When I am making my plans to return to Italy, Gaetano will be one of my first contacts! Superb! His incredible knowledge and contacts reach much further than Pompeii.....

Due to all the positive Trip Advisor reviews, we decided to indulge in hiring Mr. Manfredi as a personal guide for this part of our trip. He is worth every penny and then some! Even with the Catacombs in Naples, the Capri boat day, and Path of the Gods hike in our itinerary, we (including the kids) consider our "Pompeii"... More

I wish Gaetano would've been my history professor so I could've gotten better grades , even with my ADHD I was so absorbed into everything Gaetano said. With all his knowledge, theatrics and sense of humor I was vividly transported to the Pompeii of over 2,000 years ago . It was amazing !!!!! It was such a hot August day... More
