This was an excellent tour! The guide was very knowledgeable and personable, and the duration of the tour was perfect. It would have been overwhelming trying to explore such an extensive site on my own. Having a guide was wonderful. The transport service was excellent as well—I was staying with my three-year-old in the historic center of Naples, and getting around wasn’t the easiest, as the streets aren’t the most stroller-friendly. I messaged the tour company, and the van was able to meet me a block away from my lodgings, which made life super-easy. The tour company was vert prompt in responding to my messages. They seemed to have the entire event very well organized. I definitely recommend this activity!

Communication after booking was excellent. Made sure we were confident in where we was being collected. Journey was very comfortable too and from. Was all organised so efficiently that we lost no time. Now our tour guide, Alissia (unsure of spelling) well. just WOW! She made that tour for us. Excellent language skills, very clear. Her knowledge was brilliant, and she also had the most amazing sense of humour. Obviously skilled in dealing with wanderers and pulling them back to the group to make sure we saw as much as possible, and gave just the right time for each area. If we go again and was lucky enough to have her, we'd be chuffed. You won't be disappointed booking with these guys. Highly recommend.

Pick up and drop off was very prompt right at my hotel doorstep. Guide was great and took time to explain and her energy was very high throughout the 2hr tour. The radio works well and I could hear the guide very clearly even from a distance. I had a great time learning about the history of the site. Tour agency only confirmed timing of pick up the night before as stated on the booking. May be a bit unnerving for the anxious personalities who likes to pre-plan well in advance.
