The guide was knowledgeable at Pompeii. I am glad our guide showed us all the highlights and made the tour enjoyable. The tour company was able to pick up from Naples and drop off at Sorrento, though they were not very responsive at first to inquires. The driver from Pompeii to Sorrento was also excellent making the whole experience fantastic.

We had a bit of a scare when we hadn’t heard from this company the night before our tour, but we were able to borrow a local’s phone and straighten it out.

Very well-organized tour that covers all of the major sites of Pompeii.

The guide had worked for company for 25 years, she was super knowledgeable and very funny. My husband and I were impressed, with the site, and would recommend this tour.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2017

We had an incredible guide who made our experience very special. She had a large group but managed to know by sight who belonged to our group and several times she asked people who tried to hitch onto our group to leave since they had not paid for a guide and she thought that unacceptable to those who had paid for a guide. The tour was just lengthy enough so that we had been well educated but had not gotten exceedingly tired.

Thoroughly enjoyable and professional trip. Courteous and efficient pick up from hotel by private limo. We were slightly early meeting up with the larger group in Naples so our driver took us for a coffee whilst we waited. Well worth the money.
