The experience was great, we were lucky to meet Francesco, an exceptional guide. He takes you through all the caves around the island explaining the most important things. It was a very pleasant walk, it included snacks, a bottle of wine, soft drinks and towels!!! I would repeat without a doubt.

Would def recommend. Really great tour, we had a Finnish guy whose name escapes me. But he was great, really informative, and obviously very interested and enthusiastic about the place. He made me appreciate Naples a lot more.

Roberta, our guide is amazing! She took us through the entire history! As well as pointing out interesting things throughout the tour! Truly one of the best tours I’ve been on in a while!

Experience not to be missed in Naples. The very knowledgeable guide Monica made our visit really interesting and enjoyable. Super recommended.

Instructive, enjoyable, well paced, I would recommend it to a first time visitor
