Sasa was our guide. Our family was very lucky in that we were the only ones on the tour. So, Sasa was able to modify the tour to accommodate our 80 yr old mom's limited mobility. We sat often to give her a rest. Sasa knowledge of history was extremely extensive. We loved seeing and hearing the stories.

Highly recommend this tour, it’s a great time to visit, the light is beautiful and it’s definitely quieter. This meant there were times when our group was totally alone (never for that long!) and we were able to really soak up the atmosphere of this amazing place. Melania (eek, I’m worried I’ve got her name wrong…!) was a very knowledgeable guide and had a good personality which helped bring the tour to life. Recommend this tour.

Everything fitted perfectly. Arrived by car and were able to park directly at Camping Zeus. It was the off-season, so Pompeii wasn't that crowded. Our group consisted of six people. The sunset tour was wonderful and offered many authentic and impressive moments, the lighting conditions were just right for taking pictures. The 3 hours back in time flew by and were very entertaining. Our guide Francesco played a big part in this with his expert, but also happy and humorous manner! It was definitely a highlight of our trip to southern Italy. Highly recommend a tour with a guide to understand the details in the right context and be able to ask questions. Grace Mille!
