What people are saying about Ercolano

I liked everything very much. An unforgettable experience. An excellent audio guide. Convenient to get there by bus and train. In the beginning, the construction crane, which hangs over Pompeii, interfered with the atmosphere, but at the end of the excursion, it was he who suggested that even after 2000 years , life on the slopes of Vesuvius continues.

Luciano Leone was a very special guide. He made sure everyone’s questions were answered and he made a point to keep the several young children on our tour interested. I’m so glad I paid for the tour rather than visiting the site on my own.

Michele Lamberti with Askos Tours was a great guide. He was very knowledgeable and great storyteller. We went on a Sunday and the other couple in our group didn’t show so Michele gave us a private tour which brought Herculaneum to life.

Diego was a fantastic guide. We visited on a rainy day, but he still really brought it to life. I would definitely recommend.

Meet with our guide Diego, who was really knowledgeable and showed us around the site with a lot of passion
