Our guide was very knowledgeable of the site. Highlighted many areas from the frescos to the bake ovens and even the water sisters. Great explanations and answered questions.

We ended up missing the tour because we could not find the meeting point. We used the address given for it in the voucher and it was an abandoned building! We tried calling but no one picked up from the tour company.

Christo_F

Worst tour we had on our trip. Guide was awfull. Snapped at me for asking questions, didn’t show us anything important. Unbelievable! We toured none of the houses, we saw no frescoes. Didn’t visit the theatre or amphitheatre. He had no interesting anecdotes or stories. Basically lectured us for 1 hour about the correct Latin pronunciation of the rain water collection system. We had to walk ourselves after the tour to see anything important. Avoid this company like the plague.

We had a really great time visiting this marvelous place full of history. Really interesting and detailed visit with Chiara. Moreover, we are very grateful to the very understanding staff, who did everything to make us participate to the visit, despite we arrived late due to an unexpected event. Thank you to all of them

Notre guide était très sympa, nous a donné des informations intéressantes. A la fin de la visite nous avons profité d un peu plus de temps dans le parc pour visite solo , parfait je recommande. Petit bémol ns devions récupérer les billets au point retrait et la visite devait être à un autre point de rdv et finalement tout était sur le même site billet et rendez-vous , pas très clair les informations de viator..
