We were a group of 5 friends with different levels of knowledge of the history of Pompeii, so we wanted a guide that could cover everything. Our guide Ada was fantastic! She was very animated and kept our attention for the whole trip; we didn’t even realize that 3 hours had passed. She took us to all the important parts and did a great job of explaining the basics and going into greater detail. Since it was a private tour, we could ask questions all the time. She was very knowledgable and you could tell that she loved doing these tours. Even though we were all on a student budget, the price was well worth it. We could overhear some of the other guides in the city and they were not nearly as interesting as Ada.

We spent the most amazing three hours walking around Pompeii with Ada. She was so passionate about the place and history and small details, that we felt equally enthusiastic, willing to ask more and more. I would never say that a tour could be so interesting. However, these three hours lasted like one, and we didn't even feel tired. We almost saw the life two thousand years ago, it was so clearly imaginable thanks to Ada. I would really recommend her if you want to visit Pompeii. You'll get the most vivid and lively description!

We were very excited about visiting Pompeii and although I thought I knew quite a bit about its story, I really wanted a Guide to tell the story as we went, and we couldn't have chosen a better Guide! Ada from Pompeii Tours was FANTASTIC! Her obvious love of this amazing place and her Great depth of knowledge, really took us on a journey back in time, where we felt as though the people of Pompeii were right before us and Ada pointed out so many little pieces of information and Trivia that we definitely would have missed without her. It was in my opinion worth every cent for the 3 hours the tour took. Ada was the Best!!!

Thank you very much for all the lovely words you've had for me.
I really appreciate your warmth and I've been happy to share my passion with all of you.. Every building of this town tells us a story and makes us travel in the past.I think that if one is ready to travel in the past Pompei can really be an extraordinary experience!
A hug Ada!

This was a great experience. Very professional and a private guide made the experience all the more perfect. Worth the added expense.

Lello and driver Angelo were amazing to spend the day with during our stop from our cruise. My family of 6 thoroughly enjoyed touring Sorrento, Positano and Pompeii with them. Angelo, who was a great driver, was waiting for us with a sign at port and took us to meet our guide Lello. We felt very safe (even on the winding, narrow roads of the Amalfi Coast) and the van was in great condition. Lello was captivating and knowledgeable, always sharing information and engaging us in the history of our surroundings. There was never a boring minute here, Lello is charming and witty and brings his tours to life with his out of this world personality. We spent about 2 hours or so in Pompeii and seen a great overview (you could really spend days here though!) and even learned some of the more interesting facts like the special “arrows” that pointed you in the right direction……. Then we were off to Positano and its beautiful cliff-side city where we got to walk through the shops and down to the beach (be prepared to do lots of stairs here!). Finally was Sorrento where we had an amazing lunch recommended by Lello who also showed us the best place to get lemon candies and some free iced lemon cello which was a marvelous treat. The cost was also another pleasant surprise, for less than the cost of what the cruise line tours offered we got more personalized service and the comfort of going at our own pac. We really couldn't have hoped for a better experience!
