This tour was well organized and efficient, really enjoyed learning about Pompeii and it's history. Our guide was knowledgeable and friendly and was able to bring Pompeii back to life in front of our eyes. Only downfall of the tour was the steep and slippery walk into Pompeii. There is also no shade once you are inside. Come prepared with sneakers and water.

Our tour guide was fantastic. She was very knowledgeable and showed us many of the main sites in the 2 hour tour. We had time afterwards to explore on our own! There were water fountains everywhere too, which were very appreciated in the late afternoon heat! Definitely bring some water with you!

Awesome! Rosanna was great. Family of 5 with 3 teenagers and she connected with them all! So fun, right amount of time to enjoy it not feel overwhelmed.

Paulo was very informative. He is an amazing archeologist and was so engaging during the entire tour!! If you can, book this tour with him!!

Wonderful guide! Passionate about Pompeii, and patient with all of our questions.
