My wife and I booked this tour without knowing who or what to expect. We were delighted to meet our tour guide, Carmine. He proved to be extremely knowledgeable and entertaining with in depth knowledge of the city and its history. If we went back, we would ask for him again.

The guide we had was just great. He couldn't do enough for us. I think he took more pics of me and my wife (for us) than I did.
The restaurant we were going to for lunch was closed, but he had another idea. he took us to his uncle's house for lunch. We could not believe how much fun we had. He uncle cooked us lunch. Great lunch, greater view. We felt just like family.

Would recommend them again.

Pompeii is no doubt a 'must see' when visiting the Naples area. Walking through the ruins, seeing all the ingenious inventions they already had at that time is awesome. It must have been an amazing civilization at that era. When you have an Italian, local guide that speaks English fluently, ours was Francesco Iaccarino, that really adds to the experience. He was able to explain everything very clearly, with wonderfull anecdotes. It was obvious that he really knows his history perfectly! We thoroughly enoyed it. Thank you Francesco!

As a service professional with 15 years in the Hospitality Industry I feel compelled to write about my experience in Pompei & the Amalfi Coast with our tour guide Arianna Guide. The tour was well organized, informative, diverse, personalized with just the right amount of facts, historical details and time spent exploring. The transportation provided by the tour company was a comfortable Mercedes-Benz mini bus for a small group of 12 of us. Arianna has a warm, friendly and engaging personality. Her English is excellent and she managed to connect with everyone in the group despite the multiple nationalities and cultural backgrounds. This is important and I value the fact that in addition to understanding someone's vocabulary and grammar, with Arianna our group connected on a personal and cultural level. Her knowledge of the area is vast and the presentation is well paced and delivered in a professional and fun way. Questions from the group were welcomed and answered with ease. Personal requests were adhered to at once. She was cordial, patient, tactful and connected with our group like no other tour guide of the four other people we hired. The value of the experience, the satisfaction of the entire group, the places visited, the information shared, the time spent and the execution of this tour was by far the best experience we had in Italy! Thank you Arianna!!! Your expertise and friendly attitude was so very appreciated by all of us!!!

Antonio was very informative and made the ancient ruin come alive. He showed us the many ways that the ancient Romans were very advanced. We got his name through the Rick Steves' book and we thoroughly enjoyed our 2 hours with him. We recommend him highly to help get the most out of this huge and otherwise overwhelming ancient site.
