This was a fantastic trip. Our guide, Giuseppe D'Angel was wonderful. He made it very easy to find him, did all the local train arrangements and gave local explanations while walking to the site. He was a joy. I STRONGLY recommend this trip and even asking for Giuseppe!
The four of us were met bang on time at the agreed place at the Cruise Terminal and taken by Metro and Train to the site. Our Guide Dr Lavinia De Rosa majored in Roman History and one of her tutors was an archaeological excavator at the site, so her knowledge was unsurpassed. More importantly she gave the history and detail in an easily understood way. We spent two hours or more exploring Herculaneum with her and without any doubt we saw and understood far more than we would have done on our own with a map and guide book. We have no hesitation in recommending this guide and her Tour organiser Leisure Italy.
Francesca was wonderful! From guiding us through the intricacies of the bus, train and subway to a very informative tour of Herculaneum, she was a great guide.
Well worth the time and money. Patricia was a marvelous guide full of knowledge yet flexible enough to meet our need to abbreviate the tour because of othe plans. Herculaneum is a more compact and somewhat more interesting version of Pompeii to which my wife and I have both been. The way in which this seaside town was inundated, first by mud then lava preserved many beautiful remains of a different era including petrified wood that you will not find in Pompeii. Four hours of delightful learning and a trail that allowed this diabetic 60 year old to negotiate without exhaustion.
We had a lovely private tour with our guide, Hilary sorry if spelt wrong and she was incredibly knowledgeable. We loved Herculaneum and liked the fact that it wasn't a large area to walk around in.
