Lucia was a excellent guide and extremely knowledgable. Good sense of humor and simply a pleasure to spend part of our day with. Our driver Umberto took good care of us. We highly recommend both of them, as well as this tour.
An informative tour by a very knowledgable guide. She was very enthusiastic and made the sites interesting for us. However this "full day" tour was over by 2 pm followed by lunch. I would prefer a longer day as there was lots more to see (our amalfi coast tour finished 5pm!)
Lucia, our guide, and her husband, our driver, were both professional and engaging. Having previously visited Pompeii, I assumed that the tour would be redundant. I was both surprised and impressed. Lucia provided us incredible insight into the life of each site. Her language skills are excellent, exceeded only by her knowledge of the subject. Herculaneum was totally amazing - small but such a story and fabulous ruins. This tour was paced well and provided all of us in our group a clear understanding of each site and the life of the people. Well worth the cost of a private tour!
