What people are saying about Ercolano

Perfect visit with an adorable and very interesting guide. There were only 8 of us, including 4 of us. Perhaps our guide could have spoken a little louder, we often had to listen carefully to understand. 3D glasses are a nice gadget, but not necessarily essential.

The experience of the 3D visit was a real delight for all ages. Daniella is a very friendly and patient guide, she took the time to provide us with explanations and answer our questions. I highly recommend this formula, especially if there are children.

Daneila Was extremely knowledgeable, we we’re lucky enough to have her as our personal tour guide, so she went at our pace. We would definitely recommend using AR Tours via get your guide Thanks Daneila, Graeme & Julie (Blackburn,England)

Very interesting visit. The 3D glasses perfectly illustrate the places of the time and complete the presentation of Daniella, our guide who was great!

Daniela was an attentive and very expressive guide, she made the visit very enjoyable and interesting.
