The tour was great, Anna was so friendly and knowledgeable. I am so glad that we did the tour with her, she really put the whole Herculaneum way of life and it's inevitable demise into perspective in a pleasant and interesting manner. She was informative while keeping it interesting which can be difficult to do.
