We were just the two of us, spending 10 days in Naples and the Amalfi Coast. One of the best highlights of our time in this region was our day with Ada in Pompeii and Herculanum. How she brings it alive! You really understand how Romans lived, where they lived (and they had sumptuous houses, which Ada was able to describe to us in detail because they were open on the day we visited), shopped, entertained themselves and enjoyed life. Although we had read about these doomed cities before the trip, Ada captured the essence of its culture, history and destiny, during the wonderful hours we spent with her. You can feel her passion for these amazing sites, so well preserved and full of interesting details. We absolutely recommend Ada to anyone looking to visit the area, and especially these unique historic sites. It will become for you, as it did for us, unforgettable. Et pour tous les francophones qui songent à entreprendre cette visite, sachez qu'Ada nous a parlé en français tout au long de notre journée avec elle, avec un vocabulaire d'une grande richesse et un enthousiasme débordant.

We finished off a three week European holiday with a guided tour of Pompeii. After 21 days of looking at churches, museums and ruins I think we were a difficult group to get excited! Our guide Ada did an AMAZING job of making Pompeii come to life and keeping us all interested, we could hardly believe when the tour came to an end that three hours had passed by so quickly. Thank you Ada for making our last day such a great experience!!!

I had always wanted my family to visit Pompeii and we were not disappointed. But in addition to the stunning visuals - the story of Pompeii was vividly brought alive by our fantastic tour guide Ada. When the weather precluded the follow-up hike to Vesuvius, Ada suggested Herculaneum which in some ways was better than Pompeii. The stories and examples of how these people lived their lives was as interesting as the end of their lives was tragic. Although we ran out of time - I think the best follow-up to this trip would be to view the treasures of these sites now displayed at the museum in Naples. Our thanks to Ada for a great tour and for infusing the trip with life as seen through the eyes of a hometown women.

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!
