The incredible city of Pompeii.

Francesco our driver for the day made our day trip to Naples/Pompeii. Such a polite young man and very knowledgeable about the areas he took us too. Good luck to him as he continues his endeavors in life. Magdalena was a very knowledgeable guide. Easy to understand. The only negative I would say is she could have slowed her pace down. A couple of us lagged behind at times and we would miss her description. Again a very hot day.

We had a private tour with Ivan Triunfo. He was very knowledgeable and we learned a lot! The two hour tour flew by because he kept our attention the entire tour with stories about the lives of the people of Pompeii. The money for the private tour is worth it!

Sergio was amazing! We decided to keep our tour short because we had just flown into Rome the night before. We we were concerned it would not have been enough time to get a feel for Pompeii. Sergio was passionate about Pompeii history, its culture, architecture, and people. He was definitive about any questions we threw at him. Great tour guide! We recommend Sergio highly.

We had a private tour with Ivan. He was absolutely amazing! His enthusiasm and knowledge kept us enraptured during the entire experience. We learned more than we could have hoped for. Without a doubt, this was a highlight of our trip. Pompeii is amazing, but with Ivan as a tour guide it was exceptional. Thank You Ivan for the experience of a lifetime.

Our guide was Sergio and he was excellent. You have options, audio tape, nothing, or a guide. While the guide is more money, the value more than covers the cost. Sergio understood and explained the stories, he unpacked the area in a way that made it very real to us. Sergio… you are a professional. Gratzi.

The story of Pompeii is incredible as it includes a wonderful mixture of very old history and archaeology mixed with a massive geological event. The preservation of life at that point over 2000 years ago was very powerful.

Yes, absolutely. In fact we believe that Pompeii is one of the most fascinating places in the world. We're very happy that you enjoyed the tour :)

We had a fantastic tour with Diego, arranged on short notice. He was flexible and gracious with our delayed arrival, eased our entry into the park, and was a superb tour guide throughout. Incredibly enthusiastic and knowledgeable, he made sure to help us prioritize the places we wanted to see and introduced us to some we didn't know about. It's wonderful that someone who's spent so much time in Pompeii can still be so excited about it! Thank you for sharing your enthusiasm with us, Diego. It was a great experience!

Engaging tour with very knowledgeable guide Rosanna
Stephan_B
, Jul 2021
Rosanna vividly explained us the story of how Pompeii was formed and under which influences the city was created- first the Etruscan, then the Greek and even the Roman Empire greatly influenced the life in Pompei. This, as Rosanna explained, still influences our everyday life. Thanks to the private tour, Pompeii became more than just stone ruins and I really started to get an idea of how it could have been like living in the city’s full bloom. I suggest this tour for everyone that wants a short and intense insight into Pompeii’s most interesting facets. Thank you Rosanna for making this possible
