Based on the strength of Rick Steves' recommendation, we booked a private tour of Pompeii with Gaetano, along with a car & driver to check out the Amalfi Coast during our 1 day in port at Naples. What can I say other than it was FANTASTIC!!! Our driver, Roberto, waiting to pick us up when we arrived at the port,... More

We were lucky enough to be able to book this trip with Gaetano Manfredi for our trip to Italy. Research had told us that this was one tour worth paying for and we weren't disappointed. Gaetano has a depth of knowledge and passion for Pompeii that made it an incredible visit. Three generations of our family joined this tour and... More

Travelling with two teens, we debated the wisdom of taking the time (3 hours or so each way) for a day out of Rome to visit Pompeii and Positano. We only had 5 full days available to us overall, and should we devote one day to a tour such as this? Well, two tough-to-please teens strongly proclaimed this tour and... More

Our day trip to Pompeii and the Amalfi Coast with lunch in Positano was the highlight of our trip to Rome. We thoroughly enjoyed the day. We enjoyed touring Pompeii with Gaetano. We felt as if we were visiting Pompeii with a friend and could certainly feel his love of the place and it's history. And we certainly benefitted from... More

I booked this tour with Gaetano because he was recommended by a work colleague who had taken his tour a couple of years ago and I'm so glad we did. Gaetano was so knowledgeable and passionate about Pompeii's history, through his commentary he really bought the town to life for us and gave us a true flavour of what daily... More

My wife and I recently booked a tour with Gaetano for a Pompeii tour followed by a tour of the Amalfi coast including Ravello, Amalfi Town and Positano. We had a wonderful time! Gaetano arranged the entire day. Our driver picked us up at our Hotel in Sorrento right on time at 0830 in a really nice black Mercedes Benz.... More

We can't say enough good things about this tour. It was the absolute highlight of our entire 17 day journey to the Mediterranean. Gaetano's grandfather (I believe) was one of the original excavators of Pompeii. We learned so much about how brilliant and advanced this city was. Our entire family was in awe as his love & passion for his... More

I have now had the privilege of enjoying two guided tours with Gaetano Manfredi and can say that each time it has been the highlight of our trip to Italy. Last year we were lucky to have Gaetano as our guide for a large group and immediately his charisma and energy set him apart from all other guides. Later I... More

Gaetano Is the most knowledgeable tour guide if you want to learn about the Pompeii ruins. He gives background history about the former inhabitants, including their lifestyles, habits, and families. I have taken his tour several times and every single time I learn more and more about Pompeii from him. He always keeps up with the new parts of the... More

Gaetano was recommended by a friend of mine. I am so glad I listened to his advice and booked with him! This tour was fantastic. Pompeii itself was incredible. There is no way that you can walk through without a tour guide and have any comprehension about what the buildings actually were. Gaetano was very descriptive in describing the architecture... More
