Emiliano was extremely helpful and accommodating setting up a private tour for my family. Our tour guide Roberto, is an archeologist by training and was extremely knowledgeable and very, very nice. Roberto explained and highlighted things that were of interest to the whole family. My husband and I had been to Pompeii before but without a tour guide and I... More

Emiliano is a very pleasant, knowledgeable guide, who is passionate about his vocation and projects that enthusiasm on the tour. Pompeii is a wonderful place and without his guidance, we would have missed a lot of great facts about it. We wholeheartedly recommend him.

Getting a personal guide to show you round Pompeii is a good idea for several reasons. The highlights will be easier to find, you will be told what you are seeing (signs are scarce in Pompeii) but most of all, you will go past the queues! And if you are going to hire a guide, Emiliano is one of the... More

My husband, two teenage daughters, and I enjoyed a wonderful full-day tour of Pompeii with Giancarlo. A professional and university-trained archaeologist, Giancarlo's passion for his subject and his extensive knowledge shone through at every turn. He shared a great deal of historic and cultural information and answered our many questions. We appreciate that he was comfortable tailoring the tour to... More

I feel remiss at not having left this review before now. Wanting to tour Pompeii as well as have a guide for a 130 mile charity walk from Capua to Rome, I was lucky enough to find Emiliano in November 2013. Throughout the 5 months before we met, he was courteous, efficient and prompt. I was impressed by the way... More

Emiliano is a highly knowledgeable guide to Pompeii, and I highly recommend his services. He speaks excellent English, and has the ability to communicate his love of antiquity to his customers in a manner that is both learned and engaging. Some previous posters have complained that he sometimes uses his phone during tours - from experience over a six day... More

I found Emiliano's tour to be very informative and entertaining. I've written a couple of books set in Ancient Rome and fancied that I knew a bit - and I do. A bit. But nothing compared to Emiliano. I was really amazed at his depth of knowledge and learned so much as I toured Pompei with the big fella. I... More

We did the 8 hour Pompeii, Sorrento and Positano Tour. Mauro collected us from the Port of Salerno and drove us around to Positano and Sorrento. He was fabulous! Emiliano was unavailable to do our tour in Pompeii and we were allocated Roberto. Unfortunately Roberto was sick the day of our tour and we had a replacement guide who just... More

This guide was recommended us by friends who had really enjoyed their tour of Pompeii a few months ago. We had an amazing tour learning all about Pompeii and our guide Emiliano has a great ability to be highly informative whilst remaining informal. He is an archeologist, he has an excellent English and is very knowledgeable. When I go back... More
