Lello is amazingly funny and knowledgeable. We had a great trout with him and saw a lot of things normal visitors even other guided tours didn’t see. He also answered all of our questions patiently. Even though 5 hours might sound a lot in the beginning, with his charme, Lello turned that into almost Minutes ;) Thank you a lot for this incredible day!!!!

Excellent guide, very pedagogue and obviously passionate about her job. 5 hours are necessary to have a real glimpse of the ancient city. A slight downside: it is better to tell the guide from the start if you want to visit certain villas in particular because the site is huge and the guide did not tell us the route beforehand so we were a little caught off guard when we realized that the villa of mysteries was not on the program.
