Amazing visit through the Pompeii ruins; we got a very competent and enthousiastic guide who took us to many different places, interacted a lot with the group and had a detailed knowledge of the site and its history.

Our guide, an archeologist named Barbara, was excellent. She taught us all about the ancient history of the civilizations that lived in Pompeii and how they died. Super interesting and well-worth the price!
