Wow. Pompeii is a must do when visiting Italy and has to be done with a guide.
We booked a 5 hour tour with teenagers and were worried it would be too long.
It wasn’t long enough.
Our guide Lello, was nothing short of amazing. Knowledgeable, passionate and entertaining he brought Pompeii to life and left us wanting more.
Highlight of our tour to Italy.

I just wanted to say a big thank you for our tour yesterday. It was such a fantastic day for all of us and we were buzzing when we got home.

Lello was a wonderful guide who entertained us with stories, questions and thought provoking ideas. His knowledge about mythology and history knew no bounds and he brought Pompeii to life for all of us for the full 5 hours. The time passed by in a flash and we didn’t want the tour to end.

He is one of the best tour guides I have had anywhere and it was the highlight of my trip.

Thank you to your company for an unforgettable day.

We had previously been in Pompeii in May 2019 but made another trip with our grandson in December 2019. We had a private guided tour previously for 3 hours so wondered what more could we possibly see with a 5 hour tour. Well we got our answer. We met David, our tour guide, outside the main entry and off we went. We would highly recommend this tour as we saw areas of Pompeii that we had previously not seen. It was so worth the additional time and money. David was thoroughly knowledgeable and shared insights into the life of the residents leading up to the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius. We learned facts that we had not heard before.

Excellent experience top to bottom! Rossa was a wonderful guide, knowledgeable and engaging. The site is well maintained and preserved. We chose the 5 hour private tour and wound up taking 3 hours with a detour to a fantastic Vinyard for lunch and wine tasting. Great way to complete the day. Without the guide, it would be hard to focus on all that is available. Rossa gave us the best of Pompeii tour and it was just the right amount of information.

I highly recommend using this tour company. Our experience with guide Rosa and driver Stephano were the highlight of our trip to Italy. We had door to door service in a luxury van from our Airbnb in Rome to Pompeii. We opted for the 5 hour guided tour and Rosa showed us the special spots in the ruins. Her stories and historical knowledge made the city come alive.
We opted to end the trip early and Stephano took us for wine tasting in the Vesuvius National Park. The wines were paired to several courses of antipasti and pasta at Cantina del Vesuvio Winery. A treasure to enjoy.

We had an amazing time with Loredana in Pompeii! She was very knowledgeable about the history of the city. It was great that we were able to have an intimate tour like that. It was only my fiance and myself. Way better than the massive groups with 1 screaming tour guide. Highly recommend this company if you're looking for a wonderful experience.

We like to go at our pace and private tours are what we like to do. Professor Salvatore was fantastic. We strongly recommend this service. (We enjoy our tour so much that we did not take lunch).

A visit to Pompeii was on our list for years, if not decades, and we did extensive research to find a suitable tour and guide. Our research paid off with this private tour and guide. My husband is very knowledgeable about Roman history and Pompeii and was extremely pleased with our tour - everything surpassed our expectations. If you want a tour that goes well beyond the typical, be sure to find one that meets your interests and needs. Based on our own interests, we can strongly recommend Private Tours of Pompeii. Thank you for a very memorable and informative day!

Due to covid there were virtually no other tourists. My guide and driver were fantastic and we were able to cover Pompeii & Herculaneum on the same day. Shame about the downpour when we were at Herculaneum but there are somethings beyond our control !!

Our guide Levio was great, he was charismatic, knowledgeable and passionate about Pompeii and ancient history and archeology in general. We booked him for the entire day but we fell foul of the flakey Circumvesuviana train which had an electrical problem and that meant that we were delayed by 30mins, this was no problem for Levio who kindly tacked on this lost time at the end of our day, excellent service. We had no idea how huge Pompeii was and having a personal guide was wonderful to condense the best bits. Watching other tours with much larger groups being herded around, I know it was money well spent. Recommend.
