      Pompeii late afternoon tour
      Gennaro was a great guide and walked at a nice pace giving us great insight into ancient Pompeii before the eruption. Would definitely recommend this tour - especially as it is later in the day after the larger crowds and heat have dissipated.

      A view of Sorrento that we would never had seen without our exceptional guide.
      The guide was exceptionally good. Well informed, interesting and very helpful. And he was a real local. He told us about the nativity scene in the Cathedral and we then saw them in other churches. We returned to one shop and a trattoria that he suggested and were pleased that we did.

      A very worthwhile extra to add to your visit to Pompeii
      The Villa of Mysteries - additional Eur8 charge. Well worth it. This site is just outside of Pompeii proper which you can reach via the necropolis - street of tombs. The art-work here is exceptional because of the life sized figures. It reminds me so much of early Renaissance Art by Masaccio / Masolino in Florence - Cappella Brancacci. The board describes the scene vignettes to help explain what is being depicited.

      A Visit to Pompeii & Sorrento
      We started the day by meeting our guide, Roberta (via Tour Guide Naples), just outside the port of Naples where we took the local metro and express train out to Pompeii (she bought all our tickets for us as part of the tour). Our private tour enabled us to skip the large entry line into the site which got us ahead of the very large crowds at Pompeii. Roberta has an archeological background and was part of the Pompeii site dig, so she was full of many helpful and fascinating facts during our walking tour. Pompeii is so expansive that you could spend several days there seeing new sites, but Roberta did a wonderful job hitting the major highlights and getting us to popular locations ahead of the large crowds and lines. I believe we spent at least 2-2.5 hours there! We were supposed to go to Capri, but the rough seas caused quite the ferry delay and was no guarantee that we could get back in time for our cruise port departure. So, Roberta organized a pivot and planned for us to drive to Sorrento, taking in the beautiful coastline views through the small villages along the way. We had a lovely lunch at a local spot in Sorrento (absolutely delicious pizza, huge calzone, amazing house wine and a free limoncello to finish it off). Roberta then gave us a walking/historical tour of Sorrento with a little bit of time leftover for shopping before we had to make the return trip back to the cruise. It was a lovely way to spend our time in the areas surrounding Naples!

      Fabulous tour of Sorrento
      Fabulous tour with Guilia today. Guilia was very knowledgeable about origins iof Sorrento and all of Italy. We visited local artisans, historical church and hidden gems we would have not have found on our own. Stopped at coffee/pastry shop for delicious pastries. Viewed ancient ruins. Guilia was so pleasant. The time flew by. Thank you, Guilia, for a wonderful tour.

      Just fabulous
      Hugo is a fabulous guide. He’s gentle, humble, interesting, intelligent and has a vault of knowledge about Sorrento. He’s well loved by the locals and was happy to answer all my questions. If you have the opportunity, book a tour with him! It worth every cent.

      Great Tour Guide
      Laura excelled as a tour guide in every way. We learned a great deal about the local culture/history and tasted pastries, espresso and lemoncello delights. Laura was warm and friendly. She shared fun local spots for dining with us. She exceeded my expectations in every way!

      Pompeii through the eyes of an Historian
      My husband and I wanted to get the most out of our three hour tour and our PHD Historian Ornella, did not disappoint. Her in-depth knowledge of ancient civilizations added to the amazing story of Pompeii and its contributions to our present day society. Ornella comfortably answered our many questions throughout the tour. She graced us with a touch of her humor as well.

      Brilliant trip
      We had a brilliant morning walking around Sorrento. Our guide Roberta was so knowledgeable and friendly. We learned so much about her beloved home town that we would never have known and ventured to areas I am sure we wouldn’t have found on our own. Highly recommend Roberta and this trip. Thank you Roberta x

    We had booked a private tour with pick-up in Naples. We were picked up on time in a Mercedes Vito and brought quickly to Pompeii. The guide Luigi was already waiting for us. He introduced us to the highlights in Pompeii in a professional, entertaining and enthusiastic manner. After a short lunch break, we drove on to Vesuvius. On the way, we were shown the most important facts about Vesuvius and the highlights. The tour guide got us last-minute maps, which are obviously not that easy to get. After an approx. 1-hour ascent and descent to the crater, we were brought back to the starting point. The view from Vesuvius is magnificent. The visit to Pompeii was absolutely worthwhile and impressive. You could save yourself the approx. 1-hour lunch break in Pompeii and stay at the excavation site instead. A big compliment to Luigi who explained everything to us "English laypeople" in a way that was understandable.

    Thanks also to Hugo from "Tour Guide Naples" who called us in Naples and discussed everything.
    We will come back and visit Pompeii Part 2 and Heraculeum.

    We booked the guided tour with GetYourGuide to see Pompeii and climb Vesuvius. Let me start by saying that it is a tour that must be done with a guide because otherwise you go around in circles without knowing what you are looking at (stones and houses).
    Let's start from the beginning. The booking was made via the Internet at this well-known tour agency. In the email they write to you that they will contact you the day before to make arrangements for the collection of the day. Which didn't happen, we called the night before and they told us they would send us a text message. But nothing. Early in the morning we call back and they tell us that they can't come and pick us up at the hotel in via Toledo and to come closer to the Turchini hotel, 6 m away on foot. We find ourselves there and wait for the bus for about twenty people. They take us to Pompeii and divide us between different guides based on language. We had the guide Alex, very knowledgeable and nice. His explanations were very interesting, also dispelling myths. If it were only for him I would have given 5 stars. After leaving the Pompeii site they take us to the Suise restaurant just outside for lunch included in the price. The restaurant was not organized at all, they took orders from different tables and then shouted as soon as the dishes were ready who had taken one dish rather than another. They gave you a ticket for the free bathroom to use only once, the subsequent ones to be paid with €1. Terrible and dirty bathrooms. After lunch we took another bus to go to Vesuvius. Tickets included in the price. They left us at the entrance while we thought there was a guided tour there too. Crazy views and a climb that can be done by everyone. Once the visit was over they took us back to the starting point by bus. We were hoping for a better organization but still good.

    Vielen Dank, liebe TourGuidesNaples, für einen traumhaft schönen Tag! Es war gar nicht so einfach, eine geführte deutsche Tagestour nach Pompeji und zum Vesuv zu finden. Wir wurden belohnt! Vielen Dank, Valeria für die höchst interessante und kurzweilige Tour durch Pompeji und vielen Dank Antonio für die professionelle und unterhaltsame Bergführung auf den Vesuv. Der Wein am Krater war eine schöne Überraschung. Danke, Hugo und seinem kompletten Team für die perfekte Organisation! Wir hatten einen super Ausflug und würden jederzeit gerne wieder kommen! Alles Gute und viele Grüße! Sabine

    Esperienza fantastica.
    Abbiamo visitato gli scavi di Pompei con Sabina Gargiulo, una guida simpatica, a modo e molto competente.
    La consiglierò a tutti gli amici che verranno a Napoli.
