Lello was amazing! He was funny, interactive and extremely knowledgable. We (my family + I) went on a 3 hour tour of Pompeii and it was so informative - we wished we picked a longer tour with him because he made it so interesting! By the end of the tour, we felt like we had lived in Pompeii - it was a wonderful experience.

I would recommend this tour to everyone!!!!

We booked the 2.5 hour tourof Pomeii with with a pickup at our hotel in Rome. What a lovely treat. The Italian countryside was so interesting, and our driver Stefano talked a little about the areas as we drove through them. Pomperii was impressive. We had no idea that it was so well preserved, and there was so much to see. Our guide very skillfully avoided the crowds, and we were able to see the sights close-up and hear about them with no difficulty. We stopped for just the amount of time we wanted for a snack and souvenirs. On our return trip, our driver took us to see a well-preserved aquaduct and the Appian Way. This day was truly a treasure.

We recently took a private tour of Pompeii and booked through Lello and Co. This was the best decision we made and had the most amazing tour of Pompeii!

Lello met us at the train station and for the next three hours we were living in Pompeii. He brought the city to life with his incredible knowledge of the history and the people. He is charming, funny and his enthusiasm is boundless.

He guided us through the city (and the crowds) and after three hours of walking we were as excited as we were when we started.

We can’t recommend Lello enough. It was an extraordinary tour.

We booked the 2.5 hour tour of Pompeii whilst staying in Sorrento,We were late booking but the communication with the office once our e mail was sent was no problem. We were picked up from our hotel and greeted by Lello at the entrance to Pompeii.We had read the reviews on Trip advisor and we're glad that it was Lello who was our tour guide.I won't go into too much detail of the tour as it has been well covered by previous reviews suffice to say that all the reviews are on the button when they refer to Lello's enthusiasm, knowledge ,passion, and humour.We were 4 on the tour each with a varying interest in history,ranging from quite knowledgable to having no idea.Lelllo accommodated us all .
Pompeii is a large area to cover and on previous tours of this nature 2.5 hours can be quite hard work when taking in all the history , however with Lello the time flew by as it was more of a theatrical tour with all of Lello's passion and love for His job and Pompeii. This is not the cheapest way of seeing Pompeii but as they say cheapest is not always best, on this tour ,Tours of Pompeii with Lello is the best, Thanks for a memorable day which was the standout of our Sorrento holiday.

Don't just see Pompeii; experience it with Lello. Other reviewer's posted similar statements, and I thought " what's so special about experiencing Pompeii, its an archaeological ruin, rocks and stones". What a wonderful suprise! Lello, a truly passionate guide, articulate, and so engaging, made the city come alive during his expertly guided private tour. My husband and I took several group shore excursions offered through our ship and while each was satisfying, none compared to the experience of having Lello as a private guide in Pompeii. We could feel and almost hear the long gone inhabitants bustling through the streets, going about their daily lives. Each part of the city cameto life as we visited the vendor shops, the theaters, the homes, the baths and so much more. Each area was expertly explained in lively detail. With Lello's exhuberant tour, Pompeii became so much more than an archaeological ruin we had read about, it became a truly lively event that we will alway remember, and we have Lello to thank for that. We consider ourselves fortunate to have had the the good sense to engage Lello as our guide in Pompeii.
