“Tour of Napoli, Italia”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 8, 2013

Having lived in Naples as a child, the shore excursions available from our cruise ship would not go where I wanted to go so we sent emails to some of the top tripadvisor-rated tour companies and were lucky to come across Mondo Guides and particularly Vincenzo! All our correspondence was conducted with Vincenzo and he was very helpful in determining the plan for our day in Naples. He met us right at the ship dock in a beautiful Mercedes sedan and off we went to Pompeii. Along the way he was extremely informative regarding the history of the area and once we arrived in Pompeii, pointed out the best sights to try and see in 2 hours. We chose not to have a guided tour of Pompeii but by following his suggestions we were able to see an outstanding cross section of the ruins.

After Pompeii we drove to the heart of Naples where we visited many of the places I remember from over 40 years ago. He even took the time (before our visit!) to go twice to the apartment building that I lived in, to speak to some of the current tenants and see if there was anyone still living there from my day.

We had a wonderful, interesting day and it is obvious how proud Vincenzo is of his city and culture. A chance to do a tour with him is highly recommended and I sincerely hope to get back there one day to see more of the area.

“The way to go!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 14, 2013

We considered taking the train to visit Pompeii and Herculaneum, and while this seems to be do-able, we had limited time so we left the driving to Mondo Guides. This is the much more efficient way to see these sights in one day. (And Herculaneum is a long walk from the train station.) We didn't opt for the tour guide that Mondo would provide and were asked twice why not, but didn't feel any pressure. We prefer touring on our own and did a lot of research beforehand. Pickup at our hotel in a Mercedes was on time and since we had a bit of time left at the end, our driver showed us the sights of Naples which gave us a good orienting for walks later. He spoke very good English and had a pleasant personality, very professional. I would enthusiastically recommend this company for your tour to Pompeii.

“Walking tour of Naples' Historic Centre with Vincenzo - magnifico!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 4, 2013

Although this was my third visit to Naples, I wanted a walking tour with a local and Vincenzo was perfect.
Not only did we see what was on my list (Capello Sansevero, Pio Monte della Misericordia, Santa Chiara) he took us to other places and told us local history that was informative and engaging, especially for my 13 year old son. For example we went into Galleria Umberto and Vincenzo explained to us that the mosaic on the floor under the glass dome was signs of the zodiac and if you spin around once on your sign and make a wish, it will come true. How lovely was that?
I could easily have spent half a day with Vincenzo, he was so interesting and clearly loves his beautiful city. The two hours went by too quickly!.
I highly recommend Mondo Guide and Vincenzo for an unforgettable morning in the UNESCO World Heritage listed Naples Historic Centre - it was an experience to treasure.

“Pompeii Private Tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 27, 2013

We were dropped off by our driver and our tour guide Vincenzo Rinaldi was waiting for us. Having a private guided tour is the only way to go. Vincenzo spent so much time with us and took the time to answer all our questions. He knew a great deal about Pompeii and the history of Italy as well. He was also very protective of us and made sure we got the best spots to see the sights. Even though there were other groups there he would whisk us through the throngs to special secluded spots so we could get the full experience. It was absolutely fascinating and Vincenzo was superb!

“Private tour of Amalfi Coast and Pompeii”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 27, 2013

We had a small group of 14 from our cruise ship in Naples. Andrea met us at the pier and took us through Sorrento to the Amalfi Coast with Constantine our driver. The drive was terrific with excellent photo stops along the way and a chance to purchase local souvenirs. Andrea took a poll and we added a boat cruise along the coast at the last minute; 12E for about 50 min tour up and down the coast. We had time in Amalfi for some Lemonchello and pastries, buying wine and browsing on our own.
Andrea was friendly, professional and humourous. Constantine drove us on very narrow, twisty roads without incident. We took a scenic route back via Ravello to Pompeii.
Our tour of Pompeii was informative and we covered a lot of the site efficiently and thoroughly while getting us back to our ship on time. All in all a very good day and worth the expense.
