    The tour was fine. Josie was knowledgeable and pleasant. We booked a tour in English but we had two Italians in our group so our guide had to explain everything twice. First in English and then in Italian. It was boring having to wait while she did that, and because we took twice as long, other groups caught us up.

    A very dedicated and knowledgeable guide (Guisy) led us through the Herculaneum in a very interesting way. What annoyed us, however, was the organizational "trappings": we had booked a German-language tour; the website told us that if we booked and paid for 4 people we would have an individual tour. The day before the tour, I received an inquiry as to whether we would also agree to an English tour. We speak the language, so we agreed. The surprise at the meeting point: another couple took part in the tour. When we pointed out the "misunderstanding" and the unequal payment, our complaint was rejected.

    Our guide Carmino had very detailed knowledge and packed it with a lot of humor. Even if we had no comparison to an audio guide, I think that it was definitely worth the extra euros.
