The guide was knowledgeable, but not very entertaining. I suppose that I expected more information on the tour, but even if she were able to provide us with additional facts, anecdotes and juicy details, it was so crowded everywhere that we would not have been able to hear her. In summary the tour was good, but would have been much better if we had taken it in an "off-season".
We had a fabulous time on this day trip! The two guides were knowledgeable and extremely entertaining. Without their interesting tales dispensed throughout the long bus ride, it would have seemed a bit boring. The tour guide at the Pompeii site was also very interesting, but did get easily frustrated with the competing tour groups. And once again, this tour would probably be much more enjoyable if we had taken it in an off-season. Though the summer temperatures and crowds tried to detract from the trip's amazing sights, we were always brought back to a pleasant and informative experience by our Tour Guides; Robert and Massimo. My 17 year old daughter later wished that these two guides would lead us through all of Rome's historic sites.
