      Great 2 hour tour of Pompeii
      My adult son and I had a 2 hour tour of Pompeii with Linda on the recommendation of a friend. We were so glad we did. Communication leading up to the tour was prompt and very helpful as we were unfamiliar with the trains coming down from Naples. Linda is so knowledgeable and friendly, great English and we just really enjoyed her company and her extensive archaeological knowledge. Highly recommend!

      Fantastic Tour Guide
      Linda is still the best tour guide for Pompei. We have taken tours with her in the past and knew she was who we wanted to give us another tour on this most recent trip to Sorrento. The last time, it was just our daughter and me as part of group we were traveling with. This time, it was my husband, our daughter, her partner and me. Neither my husband nor our daughter's partner had been to Pompei. Also, this time, Linda suggested the sunset tour, which I highly recommend. It was considerably less hot than during the day, but even better, significantly less crowded. Linda is so knowledgeable about the site. You can tell she is passionate about explaining the sites that she takes you too. After Pompei, we went to a vineyard and winery that Linda recommended for a wine tasting and dinner. That was just lovely and we enjoyed it very much. We highly recommend Linda! She's the best.

      Wonderful
      Great experience! As we can’t visit in person now, this is a wonderful way to “travel” right now and enjoy an experience with interaction. Linda was able to engage and answer questions from everyone that attended, she was terrifically knowledgeable and I felt like I was walking through all those ruins! One of the best TripAdvisor experiences, highly recommended.

      Brings a dead city to life
      Linda helped in the planning of this trip months in advance. She guided us through the skip-the-line ticket purchase and even advised us as to which train, the Campania Express, to take from Naples. Linda is bright, witty, and very friendly. We made a new best friend due to this tour. She takes you to places less traveled and can guide you to places in advance of the large crowds, making your visit even more special. We will be calling on LInda again.

      Perfect day with Linda!
      We did the private tour of Herculaneum and Pompeii with Linda, and we were very glad we did. Our scheduling and communication with Linda leading up to the tour made our planning very easy. She was extremely prompt in all of her email replies, and even though we changed our schedule a few times, she was able to accommodate us without any issues. On the day of the tour, Linda arrived on time and was friendly and pleasant. She was also very knowledgeable and thorough, and kept the tour moving at an ideal pace. Linda went above and beyond her duties as a tour guide by helping us navigate our way back to Positano, and suggesting the most delicious restaurant along the way! If you are visiting Hercaleum and/or Pompeii, do yourself a favor and use Linda as your guide!!

      Great experience ! Don’t miss this!
      Our experience with Linda was impeccable from beginning to end. Everything was right: the price, the logistics, and of course the insights. She took her time and made our visit to Pompeii with our 8 year old girl a truly memorable experience. Thank you

      Pompeii guided tour
      We had a guided tour today with Linda. We learned so much new things from her, so many information and interesting stories. She had lots of patience for us and had great sense to humor. Her English was in a very high level and was great to listen to. היה לנו היום סיור לפומפיי עם לינה. הסיור היה מעולה, מלא אינפורמציה מעניינת וסיפורים מלאי חוש הומור באנגלית ברמה גבוהה מאוד. היא ענתה לכל שאלותינו ועוד בסבלנות ובנעימות. הסיור היה מצוין.

      Herculaneum and Pompeii Guided Tour with Linda - AMAZING!
      We booked both a driver (Sergio) who was prompt, personable and helpful; and Linda for our skip the line tours. Linda is knowledgeable, friendly, and knows how to do a tour that includes the highlights and random facts that truly bring history to life. She recommended a delightful restaurant in Pompeii that was both tasty and quick. I highly recommend this tour in a heartbeat. We never competed for space and were able to see and hear.

      Expert on Pompeii
      We visited Pompeii today and had a 2+ hour tour with Linda. She was not only an expert, but very nice, considerate and patient. We all learned a great deal from her. Our ages ranged from 11-55 and all were fully engaged by her knowledge. We completely skipped all lines, new what bathrooms to use, where to park, and saw everything we wanted to see. Highly recommend! Thanks Linda!!

      Pompeii with Linda
      The best way to experience Pompeii is with Linda. She made Pompeii come to life. I have been to Pompeii several times, and by far this tour with Linda has been the best. Linda speaks excellent English, and made the experience of this timeless city wonderful. It is worth your time to consider Linda as your guide when you go to Pompeii. Additionally, Linda promptly answers your email.

      Pompeii at Sunset
      I have travelled all over Europe and I love walking tours because I am an amateur Historian. This was the BEST tour I have ever taken and I would tour again with Linda again anytime. She is lovely, so very kind, friendly, clear and concise, and most of all she KNOWS her stuff. All that AND she can tell you how to find the best Pizza in all of Italy, right here in Pompei. I feel like I just spent an afternoon with a close friend. Highly, HIGHLY reccomend.

      We LOVED Linda!!!
      We really enjoyed Linda's Pompeii tour! She was very prompt in meeting us at the train station and gave excellent directions on how to use the train and where to get off. At the end of the tour she even walked us back to the train to make sure we had the right tickets back to Naples and got on the correct train. She was so pleasant and friendly and incredibly knowledgable and passionate. She was very interactive and made the history so captivating. It was also nice to go in the off season when Pompeii was empty because Linda was able to show us and take us to places that are closed in the summer or are too crowded to see. Linda will be a part of our Italy memories! Pompeii was our favorite part of our trip hands down. We loved our day with her.

      Linda was AMAZING! She was SO knoweldgable and fun. I couldn't of asked for a better tour guide.
      Pompeii was incredible. I had no idea it was so big! This tour is a MUST (especially with Linda). The tour was super informative and kept me interested for almost 4 hours. If you are in the area, you MUST take this private tour!

    Linda was an outstanding tour guide. Pompeii is vast and you can only see a fraction of it in 2 hours but she took us to all the most important places and gave us a sense of so much of life there in that time.

    Her knowledge of the place and of the more general context is huge and she was able to explain why the city was built as it was and focus on many details that would be easy to miss. She also took the time to focus on an area of specific interest that we had requested and gave us insights that we would not have known about. We asked her many questions and she was able to answer all of them.

    Book this tour if you are thinking of spending some time in Pompeii! Even though it was a sweltering 95 degrees, we learned so much walking around the ruins with Linda. Linda is a gifted teacher and communicator. She was able to fully engage our whole family (including kids 10 and 12 years old who had zoned out for the majority of the Colosseum and Forum/Palatine Hills tour the day before due to heat.)

    Linda just did a fantastic job with the tour. She only stopped to speak in shaded areas, she asked us questions to get us to guess things (especially to ask the kids) which kept them involved. We loved hearing "si, si, bravo" when we ventured guesses that were correct. She made sure we wanted to see various things before going there— and all in all, she kept us so interested that we saw everything and took the entire 2 hours without realizing it. Highly recommend!

    It was amazing! I loved that the tour guide gave out ear pieces so that we could hear what they were saying. Next time, I will bring a little wet wipe to make sure the ear pieces was cleaned between tours. September is the rainy season. We had occasional showers but it was nice weather because it was not blazing hot.

    From before meeting us Linda got in touch to ensure we knew where to meet and she was very helpful with directions and train times etc… when we were running late she even went and got us tickets to save us queuing when we got there.
    Linda was very informative throughout the tour and obviously loved the subject matter. We learnt a lot in the two hours we were with her and her English is absolutely brilliant so she was very easy to understand.
    Money very well spent. Thank you Linda.

    My wife, myself and my 2 children (15 & 11) had a great visit with Linda. She even helped us get the entry tickets in a few minutes. Linda was warm, friendly and very knowledgeable and had a real love for the history of Pompeii. She kept us engaged and mixed asking what we thought the buildings and objects told us, with sharing her extensive knowledge of the every day life of the Pompeii citizens. Highly recommended.

    Linda was one the best tour guides we've used. She took us on a 2+ hour of the ruins and was very informative and helpful getting us around the crowds and avoiding the lines at the busiest time of the year. She's the real deal -- an actual qualified tour guide (many here in Pompei are not) and she knows so much about the history and culture. We all left impressed. Highly, highly recommended.

    Linda showed us all need-to-know places after we aligned our expectations with her. It was very informative, never boring and we received and very good understanding about the time and the living 2000 years ago. She knows a lot and could answer all of our many questions and was very nice and patient.
    No comparison to a slow guided tour in a group or a dry self organised tour with an audio guide.

    We had a private tour of the Pompeii Archaeological Park with Linda. She was a wonderful tour guide who showed us so much and answered our many questions. She was extremely knowledgeable and lovely. It was a 3 hour tour and we loved all she shared with us! Linda met us when we got off the train with a sign and corresponded with us the day before and morning we headed to Pompeii to confirm our time and all logistics which I really appreciated. It was me, my husband, my 20 year old daughter and 17 year old son. We highly recommend Linda G as a tour guide!!

    We are a family with two teenage children and we included a visit to Pompeii during our Sorrento vacation. For this we booked a private tour with Linda. It was an excellent choice. Linda gave us a great two hours through the city and gave us a lot of exciting details. We can absolutely recommend Linda.

    We had a wonderful time with Linda and learning all about Pompeii! Even through the rain we really enjoyed walking through the ruins. It was the perfect amount of time and we are so glad we had Linda showing us where to go. Pompeii is not meant to do on your own, you need a guide and I highly suggest getting Linda and getting a private tour from her. This is the BEST route to go! Linda is extremely knowledgeable tour guide and was quick to answer all our questions. Could not recommend her more!
