Sasa our guide was phenomenal!! He was a wealth of knowledge and had great energy and sense of humor. His passion for the content was evident and I only wish he had been my history teacher when I was learning about Pompeii!! We wish we had more time with him. Completely worth the money and time!!

A nice and interesting experience in the underground’s of Naples. The guided tour is recommended to learn more about the catacombs. The site is administered by an association that is investing in young people and trying to give a new life to this area of Naples, this is a plus.

Amazing guide, clearly full of knowledge and will to talk about the subject. If you’re not a native English speaker, sometimes it might be a bit fast paced for understanding. I recommend it! Me and my father left amazed!

Beautiful experience .... very well organized ... enchanting places and a truly competent and helpful guide

We would do this again! This was time and money well spent.
