I can't imagine going to Pompeii without a tour guide. It's much larger than we had imagined, so it was really helpful to go with someone that could give us an understanding of what we were seeing. Our guide was a charming older gentleman named Alfonso, and he really made it fun. After having traveled throughout Italy, this site is at the top of our list of must-sees. Our only regret is that we didn't allow ourselves more time to explore. You could easily spend an entire day there.

Incredible! The transfer to and from Pompeii went very well and was very convenient, and the tour guide we had, Sasa, was super informative and gave us a stress-free experience in what is a very busy place! I learnt lots and would recommend this to anyone wanting to visit Pompeii. 10/10
