Rosanna was an amazing guide and made our Pompeji experience unforgettable. I can only recommend to take a tour with her as a first time visitor since she is sharing a lot of context about the life back then and demonstrates great passion for sharing her broad knowledge! She led us to some of the key sites in Pompeji and gave us plenty of recommendations to complete our journey after the tour ended.

Amazing guide Antonio with a great sense of humor and incredible knowledge of the site. Our group of 11 (aged from 8 to 50) thoroughly enjoyed our tour, it really was outstanding. Antonio also assisted us with our time constraints and a variation to tickets after one of our group was ill. We couldn't recommend the personalised small group tour of Pompeii more, we loved it!

We had Stephanie as our guide and she was excellent. She was really informative, fun and was able to give you a great picture of what Pompeii used to be. Highly recommended! The tour company itself was very helpful. We were running late, and they made arrangements and kept in touch with us to ensure we could catch up with the group
