    Excellent tour, the day begins with a tour of some places in Naples, until you get to observe the city from a wonderful balcony, in Pompeii we met Andrea our guide and took us on an incredible journey through time, with his energy and passion made us live in magnificent experience. I absolutely recommend it.

    Overall satisfied

    J-appreciate the diversity of the proposed tours but the counterpart is perhaps to find themselves mixed up with other groups with other languages and the guide who goes from one language to another, we have less personalized explanations . The groups divide and gather according to their choice of visits which sometimes makes organization a little difficult. But overall it's not bad at all.

    Ho partecipato a questo tour insieme a mio figlio di 10 anni. Devo dire che è stato organizzato molto bene e con i tempi giusti anche per un ragazzino. Il prelievo ed il rientro puntualissimi ed in grande comodità. Voglio sottolineare la grande professionalità delle due guide che ci hanno accompagnato: Elisa a Napoli e fino all'ingresso di Pompei e Alex a Pompei. Due persone adulte con grande cultura e desiderosi di trasmettere alle persone la loro passione per la storia e per l'arte. Entrambi molto molto preparati, professionali ed attenti al gruppo. Vi consiglio caldamente di chiedere di loro. Una delle escursioni più belle in assoluto
