This tour was incredible. We had a small group, and although we moved fast she did an excellent job of balancing translations between English and Spanish. She took the time to allow us to take pictures, ask any questions we wanted, and made sure to see everything that was in our path. Will definitely recommend this to anyone who wants to see Pompeii, learn fun and cool facts, but not spend all day there since it was only a couple hours. But the time flies by!!! 10/10 would recommend if going to pompeii for first time.

The staff was very friendly and attentive, we proposed to stay longer than the visit in Pompeii and they were friendly to show us where to take the train back to Naples. The guide was official and in the short time of the visit he explained the most emblematic areas and the curiosity of the city. Inclusion on the outbound bus explained the history of Vesuvius. We took the tour for lack of days in Naples and in one morning we made a very complete express visit. Very good experience to know Pompeii without spending a lot of time traveling to Naples

The guide was excellent and very knowledgeable, we really enjoyed the tour. Pompeii is fascinating but do bring water with you as it gets very hot and there's little or no shade.If I had anything to complain about it would be the confusion that existed while we waited on the port for our transport. Our driver was 20 minutes late we weren't sure if he was actually coming. Apart from that the tour was great and we would use get your guide again.
