Our guide made our visit to Pompeii an amazing experience. Thank you Dr. Daniela Mantice for your very informative guided tour of Pompeii. I also wanted to thank her for her patience as we were about 15 mins late due to traffic congestion getting out of the Amalfi Peninsula. I know you cannot select your guide, but if you can get Dr. Mantice, you'll learn alot and really enjoy your time touring Pompeii.

This was absolutely wonderful.... Our guide was Daniela, who has given tours of Pompeii for 20+ years, and it shows. She was incredibly knowledgeable about the entire site, the status of excavation, the details of the individual houses and spots within the city of Pompeii (including the murals and art seen all around - she is an art historian), and managed to avoid the majority of the crowd by taking us through "back streets". Three hours seemed like one with Daniela, and we can't recommend her enough!

we were a group of three generations, and wanted a tour that would work for everybody. I messaged ahead after booking the tour and they were able to provide a guide that specializes in the children. she was very patient with our high-energy kids. We originally thought that the kids would stay for half and the grandparents would stay for the rest, but it was interesting enough or that the whole crew stayed for the entire 3 hours. I highly recommend!
