What people are saying about Pompei

Gemakkelijk te vinden (ligt aan het treinstation), fijne groepsgrootte met een leuke gids. Daarbij kregen we een oortje waarmee we konden luisteren naar de uitleg van de gids, hierdoor hoefden we niet constant in een kring om hem heen te staan. De duur van de tour was perfect, alle highlights bekeken en daarna zelfstandig door Pompeï kunnen wandelen.

Excellent guide! Luisa was brilliant, very interesting and very passionate in her explaining, telling us so many details about Pompei, and also with small jokes along the way. Two hours felt like 2 minutes, I could have listened to her all day! Thank you very much Luisa

A relatively small group and the guide provided some info I was not aware of so I learned something new. In my experience, such attractions are more enjoyable with a guide and you can remain and visit other locations on your own when the guided portion has concluded.

The tour itself was very informative and our guide was clear with his explanation of the many areas and artifacts.

The guide Luisa is very good and competent. A fruitful day of culture, thank you.
