This Pompeii Tour was the crowning event of our two weeks in Italy. Our guide, Michele was outstanding. His knowledge of Pompeii and the Roman civilization is impressive. The tour pace was comfortable and covered the highlights very well. Michele's zeal and enthusiasm brought the ancient town to life. We could easily imagine the town alive and filled with Roman citizens living their lives in 79 AD.
This tour is highly recommended and was well worth the cost. 3 hours was not enough!

Our family of five had a private tour in English with Antonella. Despite it being an incredibly hot day, we enjoyed ourselves very much and three hours flew by. Our guide was charming, funny, and extremely knowledgeable about ancient Roman life. The tour was worth every penny!

We booked a 2-hour group tour of Pompei upon the recommendation of our hotel since we were visiting with our 11 year-old son (otherwise, they said, he may get bored). This was a terrific suggestion & our guide was very knowledgeable & easy-going & gave us great info. 2 hours seemed perfect, much longer & it may have been too much. With Italy just re-opening it was just 1 other couple who came along so it was an intimate tour, which we liked.

Our tour guide was extremely knowledgable and engaging, and spoke impeccable English. I would highly recommend taking a tour instead of doing the ruins on your own as the area is so vast, plus I learnt a huge amount about ancient Pompeii. The whole trip ran smoothly and was a lovely afternoon all round!

We booked an archeological guide for a visit to Pompeii for a mixed grouo of adults and children between 13-16. Booked a late afternoon slot (15:30), which I can highly recommend: less warm and many visitors come early in the day, so more quiet. Askos Tours, through whom we booked kept us very well informed via whatsapp, including exact meeting times, mobile of our guide etc. They also facilitated a change of date related to Covid-19 opening restrictions very efficiently. Full trust in them.
We met our guide, Paolo Gardelli, at the gate. He already had our tickets and it was easy to get in.
Paolo was just phenomenal! Excellent command of English, impressive CV as an archeologist, highly knowledgable and, importantly, able to keep everyone in the group interested for the entire tour, including our 13-year old son. Fun facts, asking us questions, relevant historical context... We learnt so much and it was amazing how he brought this nearly 2000 years old little trading town to life for us. Ultimately, our 3-hour tour became a 4-hour fantastic exploration of Pompeii with Paolo. Without the hordes of tourists due to Covid-19 it almost felt surreal as there were hardly any other visitors. Paolo made our encounter with Pompeii truly unforgettable and I would highly recommend booking an archeological guide when visiting Pompeii - the price is really worth the experience!

Francesco picked us up at the Napoli Centrale train station and he drove us to Sorrento, it was awesome with matching playlist in the van. It was excellent. Then he took us to Pompei for a family lunch at iMatti (it was delicious!), Then it was time for him to take us to Pompei to meet with our tourguide Paolo (he was amazing as well!) who is an archeogist, he was an excellent guide, very knowledgeable! Thank you Francesco and Paolo!

This is absolutely the best way to get the most out of your tour to Pompeii. Our guide, Michele, was about as thorough as anyone could expect. It was a three hour, in-depth look at the eruption, the aftermath and then a fascinating look into life in Pompeii preceding the eruption. We were picked up at our VRBO, driven to Pompeii where we were met by our guide. After the tour we were driven back to Naples and dropped off at the restaurant of our choosing. It was all smooth and seamless. Can't say enough good things about how well we enjoyed it.

We booked a 3 hour tour with Askotours and I can't rate them highly enough. Our archeological guide, Paola Vitiello was not only extremely knowledgeable but she had excellent English . She had studied under one of the professors invovled in the excavation and described in detail the background and context to the artifacts and buildings. I would certainly recommend that you stay for 3 hours as there is so much to see. Definitely worth having a personal guided tour. I felt we really got under the skkn of the place.
