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. Never have... More

I have toured Pompeii twice with Gaetano Manfredi. The most recent tour included my daughter's family with our two grandchildren, ages 13 and 11. Gaetano's knowledge of Pompeii is excellent and his natural enthusiasm captures your attention. The two hours flew by. Afterward my grandchildren agreed their favorite experience in Italy was their visit to Pompeii. Bravo Gaetano!! ~ John,... More

Pompeii, a truly breath-taking place to visit. The Romans certainly were very clever people. To think it was covered for so long. Astounding place.

Pompeii was the highlight of our Italian tour and Gaetano was the reason. He brought Pompeii back to life after 2000 years with his vivid descriptions. He arranged to pick us up at our hotel in Rome and our driver was great fun and very professional. We were also given the opportunity to eat Lunch on the Amalfie coast before... More

Gaetano met us at the gate and soon we were transformed into the lively world of Pompeii. Gaetano's descriptive narration made it possible to envision the life of the traveler coming to Pompeii to exchange goods and services. He painted vivid pictures with his colorful words. We moved throughout the ruins at a good pace yet Gaetano took the time... More
