Gaetano set us up with our driver Marco. Marco spoke perfect English and was wIting at the cruise port on time. Marco was very friendly and pointed out important spots on our way to Pompeii. Gaetano met us at the ticket booth with our tickets in hand. No waiting in line! Gaetano was the most personable tour guide I have... More

I googled Pompeii tours and came upon Gaetano's Tour. The reviews were amazing so I reached out to him to setup the tour when our cruise ship arrived in Naples. Unfortunately, we had to cancel our trip, but rebooked it the following year. I quickly reached out to Gaetano to reschedule. Antonia picked us up from the boat and explained... More

We booked a private tour with Gaetano after reading all the fabulous reviews on Trip Advisor and he surpassed our expectations. He arranged for a driver to pick us up in Rome (7am) who drove us straight to Pompeii. We were there by 9.15am and he was waiting with our tickets (no line for us!). Gaetano provided an incredible deep... More

We had a group of 10 people to visit Pompeii and Mt. Vesuvius. Gaetano and his team arranged everything - from picking us up at our villa near Sorrento in a large van, to arranging lunch, to taking us through the ruins. Gaetano brings the ruins alive with his wit, charm and excellent English. We felt it was the right... More

We had a wonderful time touring Pompeii with Marcello (Gaetano was already booked for the day). Having visited one other time without a guide we really appreciated how much more we enjoyed our time there on this visit. Marcell0 was very informative and was happy to answer all our questions. Amazing restaurant and location in Positano and Mauricio made sure... More

Thank you Gaetano for being our guide in Pompeii and arranging for Tony to take us part way down the Amalfi Coast to Positano. You truly lived up to your superb reputation as a guide extrodinere. As a teacher you had a wonderful way with our ten year old granddaughters. We loved the way you engaged them in the tour... More

My family of four had a great tour of Pompeii with Gaetano. He provided a depth of knowledge of Pompeii, even keeping the teenagers engaged. Further, he even adjusted the time and speed of the tour to beat the brutal heat. One of the highlights was our tour was our driver, Mario. He was informative about everything we passed on... More

For years I saved an article recommending Gaetano's tour, and was finally able to schedule with him. We enjoyed every minute of it and wish it could have been longer. This is not the ordinary dry, scripted survey tour. He made Pompeii come alive again, teeming with people of many languages who had arrived from all corners of the Roman... More
