Diego "Zorro" was absolutely a legend as our guide! You can tell he is passionate about telling the story of Pompei and tells us in an enchanting way that makes it more interesting. He also showed that he deeply cared about the site and its artifacts which shows the love he have for Pompei. Would recommend getting this tour and nothing else!

The tour was very insightful. Our guide and archaeologist - Paulo - was knowledgeable and had good interpersonal skills that kept us engaged. Having a guide meant that we could learn as much as we could in the short amount of time we could afford to cover this large area. I would recommend this.

Our tour guide Alessandra was amazing. She did actual digs at the site as she is an archeologist which made the tour that much more in-depth. She made our tour unforgettable.

Nello, our guide is just perfect…, lots of humor, he explains the history of Pompeii in a lively and dynamic way. We are enchanted

An amazing tour, that really brought the experience to life
