What people are saying about Pompei

Vincenzo was excellent (he lived in New York)! He even offered to let us contact him later in our trip for restaurant recommendations. It was a treat to be escorted by a native driver in a clear, cool car. The day was very well organized and efficient — we could not have planned all of these activities ourselves, and each part of the day was just as fun as the last. I recommend paying extra for the guide in Pompeii, as she provided additional context that we would have otherwise missed. Make sure to budget an additional €75-125 per person for the tickets and food (or €225-375 total). All around, it was a fabulous day!

Myself and my partner were guided around the site earlier this week by Sasa, who was an excellent tour guide. Sasa’s stories and insights brought to life the history of Pompeii. It was a very enjoyable tour, even more so given the small group size which allowed us to ask as many questions as we liked. Highly recommended!

Our guide, Melania, was very knowledgeable and kept the tour interesting. Her English is excellent and she is very easy to understand.

Our German Guide Francesco was fantastic. It was a very nice, interesting and funny tour. We enjoyed it very much!!

Our guide was knowledgeable and fun. Great value. I can't imagine visiting Pompeii without a guide.
