Excellent ! Good organization à la Napoitaine which is part of the experience but everything is done with a smile. Our guide, Stefano, was just perfect. Impeccable French, passionate and defender of the site! He immersed us in the history of the city with facts, anecdotes and lots of humor. 2 hours of site is good and short at the same time. We stayed 5 hours more with my 15 year old son. An unforgettable day !

Exciting guided tour with our guide named Elisa. Very good explanations and anecdotes of daily life at the time. Our 14 year old loved it too. We then stayed on the site for another 2h30 to extend the visit and see in particular the villa of mysteries that we had not seen during the guided tour.

Fantastic tour. Really fascinating places to visit and Michele the guide was full of knowledge and experience. The day flew by so quickly we were all so engrossed. Very highly recommended and excellent value for money.

I liked it a lot, punctual, friendly, very well organized for such a visited place. There is not much time to see the cities but I understand that it is to be able to see both. Amazing experience.

We got on very well with Alex, our very prepared guide who gave us a lot of information, telling us the history of this city.
