What people are saying about Pompei

This was a great tour of Pompeii. It's a lot more affordable than most which is a bonus! Meeting at the train station and going to Pompeii with Gino and the rest of the group was very simple. Pompeii is huge so you don't get to see all of it but Gino brought us around to the best parts and really explained the history so well - he definitely knows his stuff! He was very easy to understand and was great fun! Would definitely recommend for being so informative and value for money!

I would really recommend this tour. We just had to turn up at the train station in Sorrento and everything else was organised, and I must say superbly so; including return train tickets, and entry tickets to Pompeii (skipping the queue) with an added audio guide to ensure we could always hear our guide. Pompeii is a must visit and our guide was informative, interesting and funny. A fantastic day out!

The guide Gino was absolutely brilliant. So full of knowledge and made the whole tour interesting and informative-I will never forget it. So thank you for making Pompeii so enjoyable.
