“Great Tour with Lello”
Reviewed January 22, 2013

We (party of 2 adults) had a wonderful half-day tour of Pompeii with Lello, despite the freezing weather! He is a very interesting guide with a wealth of knowledge about Pompeii and its inhabitants and was able to answer all of our questions. Although the tour is quite expensive I would recommend it as the best way to understand this large and complex site.

“Private Tours are great”
Reviewed January 16, 2013

Our party included 3 Adults and 2 teenagers and our guide made it fun for everyone. Our tour was on 8 January and Catello ( Hope I got his name right) was very knowledgable. He didn't talk at us though which was great - he instead got us to think about the lives of people in Pompeii. You could imagine what it was like back then and we all got a lot out of it. Having it just for us made it more special I am sure we all took away a better appreciation for how amazing life was back then - especially their knowledge. I really appreciated Catello waiting for us as we missed the first train but he was still there when we got there - Thank you so much - A hightlight of our European Trip

“Pompeii, Herculaneum and Positano with Lello”
Reviewed January 15, 2013

It was a wet wet day in end-Nov 2012 - our 01-day tour with Lello. But he was so good, he made us almost forget about the rain as we walked through both Pompeii and Herculaneum. In cities we go to, our family appreciates what a good guide can do, to help us make the connection with the city, people and history that we encounter. Lello easily made our "Best 3 ever" list.

“Lello - what a great guide - a wonderful day”
Reviewed January 14, 2013

Lello is a wonderful guide. We had a limited amount of time to see Pompeii when we were in Italy in December 2012, and he managed to fit in the most amazing sights for us. We learnt so much about the history of Pompeii on our tour and Lello kept it interesting and fun for all ages (our kids are 19 and 10). I am sure Lello has walked every street of Pompeii many times, so he will make sure you see the best sights. We would highly recommend Lello to anyone interested in ancient Pompeii - he is fantastic! We are still talking about our tour of Pompeii with Lello - it was the best during our entire time in Italy.

“Half day tour of Pompeii with Margherita”
Reviewed January 14, 2013

We're just on the train back from Pompeii to Rome after having a half day tour with Margherita and felt so compelled to write a review immediately.

What a wonderful day and fantastic tour!

Margherita's friendly nature allowed my wife and I to feel so comfortable right away to explore this fascinating location.

Whilst you certainly need hours and hours to explore all of Pompeii, 2 and a half hours with Margherita was more than enough time to get so much important information about the area and to see all of the main highlights.

Her knowledge of the area also allowed us to make the absolute most of our time with her because, while we were never rushed or hurried, she organised such an efficient route for us.

Her humour and excellent English only added to our wonderful time.

Pompeii itself is wel worth the visit, though be sure to pack water and a snack whatever time of year you go.

I wish you the best of luck on your travels and we certainly recommend this tour!
