Luciano was personal, knowledgeable and interactive and gave us insights to Pompeii we wouldn't have gotten on our own.

Eugenia was fun to listen to. His British Italian pronunciations were adorable. Knowledgeable. Polite to other groups. We should have booked an earlier tour so we could have walked around longer and visited the gift shop.

Alessandro took our group of 4 on a 2-hour tour of the main sights of Pompeii. He met us at the train station and had already purchased our tickets, so arrival and entrance were very easy. He clearly knows so much about the subject and explained everything clearly (in English) and with such enthusiasm. It definitely enhanced the experience of visiting this amazing place for us and so would highly recommend this informative and well planned tour.

Wonderful tour. 2 hours. Saw a lot. Martina was fun and very efficient. Asked questions of us what we would think of various brothel-type Pompei sections to see whether or not would be appropriate for our young kids. She also adjusted the tour to their pace and interests. Thank you!
