What people are saying about Pompei

Francesco was an awesome guide and we are very happy that we did that tour. He picked us up in front of Pompeji on time, was very knowledgeable, gave a great spirit with his music choice while driving up the Vesuvius and he really did a great job on the walk the way up. He kept the group together and made frequent stops to explain something so that everybody had enough time to catch breath again without the feeling to be the „slow“ one. You can feel that he is a great guide that enjoys what he does. It took about 30 min up and middle of Sept temperature was just fine. In the end he even dropped us off on the way back close to our accommodation what was great and not a matter of course as we experienced the next day. Thank you Francesco!

We absolutely loved our guide! Ricardo was very informative and passionate about Pompeii. Even at the end of the tour he suggested things to see that he thought was interesting. You’ll be lucky to have him as a guide!

It was well organized and the guide was knowledgeable. We had a great time, and it really helps to have a guide to show you the hilights of this huge place. After the tour you can continue exploring on your own.
