This was a good tour with a friendly tour guide. There were lots of ruins and plenty of time to look around and take pictures. We did not get as much back story on the history of Pompeii as I would have expected, but had lots of information about each room and ruin we walked through. We were an add-on for the Pompeii portion of a larger group that had come down from Rome, so we only participated in the Pompeii aspect of the tour.

The best guide we could have hoped for.

My husband and I are on honeymoon at Cava De Tirreni, traveling up the Amalfi Coast. I have alway wanted to go to Pompeii. We were recommended to do a tour with a guide. We were so lucky to get Connie as our guide. She was so passionate about Pompeii and the history. She was incredibly detailed and funny. Thus far, our tour of Pompeii has been the highlight of our trip.

Incredible!

It was so much fun with Connie! She is fantastic and very knowledgeable about the city of Pompei. She answered all our questions and included the whole group. It needed to be longer! There was so much that we didn’t get to see, but we were glad that we got to walk around afterwards.
