My neice and I spent the most wonderful day exploring Pomepii and Herculaneum with Ada. She picked us up from our hotel promptly and delivered us to the train station per our schedule. Her knowledge of both sites is extraordinary and her passion for the sites made the visit one of our favorite tours in Italy! Through Ada, we felt like we knew what life was like at these sites prior to the eruption of Mount Vesuvius. She offered so many small details, took us straight to points of interest all the while explaining what we were seeing and bringing the villages to life before our eyes. We learned about Mt. Vesuvius from a resident's perspective. Her English is excellent! History in action!! She treated us like guests (attending to all of our possible needs) and we left feeling like graduate students with the abundance of knowledge we left with. Extra-ordinary!!! You'll miss out on a wonderful adventure if you pass up Ada and her wonderful tours.
