Being such a huge history and archeology geek, visiting Pompei, the city destroyed by Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD, has forever been high on my list of places to see. After what looked like a lifetime of waiting, I finally got to view it, walk the ancient streets and absorb the history of this legendary city. After the delightful lunch, climbed to the top of Mount Vesuvius which was an iconic experience! Francesca, our guide, deserves the first place! She’s very detailed in her explanations about the history of Pompeii and her enthusiasm for what she does makes the tour fabulous. She knows everything about any monument or general building or that you might stroll past on the tour. She’s an illustrated, great guide, deliciously funny and I’ve been lucky to have her! It was an unforgettable trip!

Despite the torrential level of rain, our guide Danielle was outstanding. Full of passion and deep knowledge about the tour, she made the 2 and a half hours fly by and would highly recommend her as a guide.

This was by far the best tour I did in Italy. The tour guide was highly knowledgeable, providing a lot of context & interesting tidbits that I wouldn't have gotten from reading placards/doing an audio tour.

The tour was great. Alisa was very nice and informative. She knows how to tell the story of Pompéi in an interesting manner. The trip to Vesuvius was excellent as well. Overall, it was a great experience.

Diego was great, his guidance and explanations were very interesting
