Rossella, la nostra guida, ha reso la visita davvero interessante con tante informazioni e curiosità sul sito archeologico e la storia di Pompei. Due ore per visitarlo tutto sono poche, ma consiglio tantissimo di affidarsi ad una guida per vivere l’esperienza in modo più completo ed immersivo! (Tour di durata più lunga sono super consigliati) Al termine del tour Rossella ci ha anche consigliato come proseguire la visita in autonomia nel migliore dei modi.

This tour was fantastic. Well-organized, professional and on-time. Our guide, Francesca, was excellent. She was very knowledgeable and charismatic and made the visit through Pompeii a memorable one. No way we could have enjoyed the site as much without the commentary. We highly recommend this experience! Many thanks to Francesca and the whole team!

Had the Pompeii tour with Elisa (hope this is correct spelling). She was so funny and full of information in the tour, would definitely recommend

Emiliano, our guide, you can see that he enjoys his work. Tells, explains and sometimes forgets the time ;)

Very easy to use and the directions to meeting place worked great !!!
