Best tour ever! OUr tour guide was the most knowledgeable person and, in the same time, perfectly knew how to present all the facts to us in an interesting and amusing way. We learned a lot about Pompeii, about people who lived in the town and about the tragedy which happened there. The tour was so interesting that we didn't even notice when the time had passed and the tour went to an end. Most recommended tour in Naples.

We couldn't have wished for a better experience. Antonio, our tour guide and archeologist, made our visit unforgettable.

I'm Italian and I've booked this private tour in English to show my friends visiting from abroad our stunning Pompeii.
Although I had already visited Pompeii before, I still learned so much during the visit. Our tour guide showed us great professionalism, knowledge and most importantly passion for every tiny detail present on the site. His passion and dedication was crucial to keep us engaged and interested throughout the tour.

All of us were super impressed and satisfied. I will for sure recommend this tour to all my friends from now on.
The tour agency also demonstrated attention to the needs of the client and kindly walked me through the booking and preparation phase.

We actually enjoyed 3 private tours with Askos - Pompeii, a trip to Naples for the Archeology Museum, and a tour of Ercolano, Oplontis, Stabiae and Villa San Marco.

The guides and drivers were uniformly outstanding. I felt sorry for everyone else, since we were having the ideal experience. They know how to avoid the crowds, and make the most of your time.

The sites of Oplontis, Stabiae, and Villa San Marco were my favorites. Imagine having the remains of an ancient villa all to yourself - we experienced that 3 times over.

Plus, on Ercolano, Oplontis et al day - they dropped us off for a lunch break at a restaurant where absolutely no one spoke English, and we had one of the best meals of our trip.

I highly recommend this company.

We had a two hour tour of the south west area of the site, which was absolutely riveting. First we received an historical and factual orientation and then a brilliant tour accompanied by the vivid commentary and descriptions of our excellent guide. Pompeii became alive for two hours. Much to be recommended.

We booked with Askos Tours for a tour of Pompeii with an archeologist - it was absolutely splendid. Paulo, a working archeologist, gave us a superb tour and explanation of many aspects, the digs, the culture, the history... He paced the tour nicely, and improvised to avoid the largest crowds. Very congenial. Excellent tour. Worth the higher price than some cheaper tours.

We loved Askos so much we booked a tour of Ercolano the next day. That did not work so well - the address on the ticket lead us to a place several miles away with the same street address. We ended up doing the tour on our own. So be careful, but do use Askos for Pompeii as it was very well done.

Having Sergio there was like getting the VIP tour from a History Channel narrator! He knew so much and I could tell he thoroughly enjoyed spending the time teaching and guiding me. He was friendly and accommodating the whole tour, even slowing down to allow me to take about a thousand pictures. 10/10 experience! Promote that man!

My wife and I took the Pompei tour with Daniela today. She is an archaeologist who has worked on the Pompei excavation work for the past 8 years. It was great to hear about Pompei directly from an archaeologist with first-hand knowledge.

Daniela was very friendly, funny and informative. My wife and I really enjoyed spending our afternoon with her in Pompei. Definitely recommend!

This was an excellent Tour. Emiliano was awesome and had a real passion for Pompeii. Much had changed since I visited Pompeii 32 years ago. His explanations and descriptions were first rate and really helped us (party of 8) understand what we were looking at. I highly recommend Emiliano & Askos Tours.
