Riccardo was a terrific guide. He's extremely knowledgeable and personable, and even gave us some recommendations for things to see after our tour ended. 10/10 would take this exact same tour again.

Italo was amazing! He was so knowledgeable that no one was surprised when he said he's been doing Pompeii tours for 12 years now. He made sure no one in our group was left behind and accommodated the wide age range in our group, from toddlers to adults. And to top it off he was very funny. We learned so much about Pompeii's fascinating history and we would love to come back. Thanks Italo!

Ricardo was an amazing guide, he was super knowledgeable and engaged the whole group both adults and kids. 2.5 hours is not enough time to cover all Pompeii, but Ricardo was quite helpful to the folks that wanted to see the other parts of the archeological site (as we had a full day ticket). Would do it again in a heartbeat and well worth the investment.

The guide was enthusiastic and great. He's English was great. He told interesting stories and took us to most of the popular places. I only gave 4/5 because we wished the tour took us to more places like the amphitheater, brothel, houses with frescos etc.

Dear guest, thank you for your booking. Pompeii is huge and the tour you booked is 2 hours...so It's not possibile to go to the Amphitheater. But we do the brothel and houses!

Rafaele gave us a fantastic 2 1/2 hour tour of Pompeii. Being an archaeologist working on the ruins gives his stories an added insight. Pompeii is far too large to see in entirety and a guide is really pretty essential if you want to get a good amount of detail but within only a few hours - they know where the interesting pieces are and how to find your way around.

Rafaele was funny, charming and made sure everyone was taken care of and safe, especially in the intense heat we had during our visit. He was also able happy to provide additional information including local food recommendations. One of the best tour guides we've had anywhere.

The group was smallish - about 15 for us - and he doesn't use a radio to give his talks but instead uses old fashioned voice communication. Although for some maybe that wouldn't be so good, in this case I think the smaller group and more personal approach worked well. He also does tours of Herculaneum as well, although we didn't go on that one due to time commitments.

Raffaele was an excellent guide around Pompeii. He was enthusiastic about every thing. He took us to places I'm sure we wouldn't have gone for ourselves and explained everything in an interesting way .His background as an archaeologist proved to be very useful. He readily asked any questions asked of him about the life in Pompeii at the time of the eruption. We were so pleased we paid to have a guide.

We bought skip the line tickets that was a waste as with the virus very few going. Always wanted to see and it did not disappoint. There is much more than I thought there and better too. Most only go once but go.

Raffaele was the ultimate guide for Pompei. As an archaeologist, he added insight that we wouldnt have received from a self tour. He was passionate about each detail that he described. The group was also small so we didnt feel lost. Questions were easily addressed and everyone was involved in the tour. Highly recommend.
