Our guide Teresa was an archeologist and was full of knowledge and made the tour very interesting. My teenagers learnt a lot and we were very happy we took the tour. We would definitely recommend this tour. We have tried all 3 ways of exploring a place (on our own with a map, self audio guide and a guided tour) . A guided tour is worth the money as you get a lot of additional information and you are not wasting time on unimportant details.

This place is incredible!!!! Our tour guide was so informative and really gave me a great understanding of what it was like for the people who had lived there. I would recommend going as early as you can and make it a full day thing. There is so much to see here that you can miss a lot if you only alot a half day to this experience. When the tour is done, they let you stay in the area and continue walking around by yourself. Do not miss out on this.

We were during the bridge of the Saints with a truly remarkable number of visitors. The max group of 20 people was respected. A special thanks to our guide Maria Laura who is very knowledgeable and passionate about her work, she did everything possible to allow us to see the site at its best.
