Great Trip - Wonderful Guide owner of the company and driver.
Another brilliant tour. Max was our driver and he gave a lot of information along the way. Our guide David inPopeii was awesome and again so very knowledgeable. Definitely a tour to take
We took the private tour and paid a surplus to have a guided tour. It was amazing! Our driver was fabulous. Taught us things along the way, he was pleasant and insightful by answering any questions we had. As for our tour guide, she was so good too. She knew so much and if we didn't understand, she was more tha willing to explain with patience. We highly recommend this tour!!
A bit of a long journey to get there form Rome, but the driver Claudio was good. Our guide Santiago for the visit was so knowledgeable and able to get across a feeling as if we were there. A fascinating 3 hours touring the town. Well worth the money
We had a fabulous time! We booked the private tour because we wanted to be able to go at our own pace and spend time truly seeing Pompeii. This tour was worth every penny.
Our driver, Massimo, was fantastic! Our guide at Pompeii was very knowledgeable and personable, and tailored the tour to what we wanted to see. I highly recommend this tour.
Our guide was so knowledgeable and really was able to make Pompeii come alive for us. We learned so much and had a wonderful day.
Our tour guide was an archaeologist. He was very interesting and informed. Really nice to have private driver waiting for us with water and ac!
It was a beautiful drive to see the Tuscany countryside. Our driver was very friendly and courteous. We visited Siena, San Gimignano, and the quaint small city with only 59 residents (can't remember the name), and lunch with wine tasting at Tenuta Tociano. Wonderful tour. Highly recommend.
This tour was fantastic. Our tour guides, both on the trip and in Pompeii, were very knowledgeable and interesting.
Loved this tour. Had a great driver Claudio who took us from hotel in Rome to Pompeii and back. Guide was fabulous and passionate about Pompeii. 2 hour private tour probably not long enough so after it concluded we skipped the return stop off lunch and stayed for 2 more hours walking by ourselves.
Marco was the best tour driver ever! He was waiting for us with a super comfortable Mercedes van and made us feel like VIP tourists. We'd been in Rome for two days already, but he brought our experience together with interesting and engaging commentary about all the sights we passed as we drove through the city. His knowledge was much more than surface deep, and we learned so much. The six hour round trip car drive could have been uncomfortable, unpleasant, and dead-time, but we enjoyed it the whole time. We'd considered doing a group tour or taking a cab to Termini and then two trains to Pompeii, but that seemed so public and busy and full of potential snafus. We think that we got great value for money.
A long awaited trip to this great space in the world. It was a great day, the driver and guide provided were the best. We thank you.
We had heard on reviews about wonderful informative drivers. Ours was pleasant enough, but he did not give any information on the way or at least not to the group. The tour guide at Pompeii was reasonably informative, but she was inflexible. She gave us her standard tour refusing to deviate to show us the laundry we really wanted to see. She stuck to a two hour program of a standard unremarkable tour. The driver did take us on a side trip we requested to a famous WWII battlefield which we thoroughly appreciated.
Traveling with teenagers. We had a small amount of time in Italy. This was worth it for the ease of the pickup and drop off. Our driver was very accommodating, even taking us to the pharmacy to get antihistamine medicine for my son. We got to see the new sites that have only recently been opened up at Pompeii this year, which was extremely cool. I'm not sure if there is enough time to visit other cities like the tour description mentions, unless you plan to only take an hour in Pompeii. We didn't because there was so much to see!

This should be renamed from Private Tour to Private Shuttle. We spent 640 for four people, and were surprised to realize after booking that this amount only got us a shuttle van with no actual tour guide at Pompeii at all. If you don't opt for the upgrade, all you're getting is a ride to and from Pompeii. By time you have spent that much, you will regret not getting the Tour also, since there is not a lot of descriptive signage inside Pompeii so it's difficult to understand the significance of most of what you are seeing. The line to get into Pompeii was also long and unruly when we arrived groups seemed to be permitted to indiscriminately cut in front of us almost without end, so beware that not including the tickets in this Tour is more hassle than just the few extra dollars of ticket price. All those things aside, our driver was fun and friendly, and the ride itself was very comfortable.
