We were met by our guide, Josie, who explained how the tour would work. She accompanied us on the train from Sorrento to Pompeii and then around the site explaining everything. Once finished she explained how to get back to the station and then we could wander around on our own. Josie was really good and very informative and funny. Would definitely recommend.

Excellent guided tour. Very well organised from being met at the station until the very end. Great value for money too. We were lucky enough to have Gino as our guide who was extremely Informative and knowledgeable about Pompei but also was very funny and warm and has great stories to tell giving a personal touch. Brilliant experience.

Well coordinated by the guide, despite large crowds at both the train station in Sorrento as well as throughout the Pompeii archaeological site. Our guide Gino excelled in sharing key historical facts and anecdotes about select areas within Pompeii. The organized walking tour lasts about 1 1/2hrs but it was great to be able to further explore the site independently afterwards with the foundational knowledge that Gino had provided. Making your way back to Sorrento on the train on your own (if you choose to stay and explore more) is straight forward and simple.
