I had an excellent tour with Paola, in the small group tour. We had about 12 people in our group, and she was able to show us a bunch of the highlights, and since Pompeii is far larger than a couple hours on a tour could show, she also did a great job of making recommendations of what additional places to see for the rest of the day based on personal interests. The meet up in the morning at the gate was easy and friendly, we quickly made it through the queues at the gate (because we already had tickets), and got started immediately. Our tour ended up going a little longer than booked (no complaints there), and we saw a lot -- and I spent another 3 hours on my own exploring the site afterward, with plenty of things left to see on a future visit.
Excellent tour. We were very late going and the people were extremely accomodating and super friendly. Our tour guide was called Dario and he was very charismatic and knowledgeable. He really brought the place to life as there were very few if any signs telling people what the buildings are. It’s 39€ each which I think is very reasonably priced and definitely worth it especially if it is your first time going like us. Tour lasts for 2 hours which is the perfect timing as it really is quite hot.
We are staying in Sorrento at an AirBNB and they picked us up at our door. The driver both directions was excellent! The tour guide was great, she took us through the most important parts of Pompeii, and alternated full sun and shade. The headsets were okay, one had a lot of static so check it before moving away from the headset collection point.
everything was well organised and we had an overall delightful experience with our archaeologist-guide. we spent almost 3 extra hours after the end of the tour, to stroll around, revisit some of the places in our own pace and discover some of the buildings that weren’t included in the activity.
Wonderful guide with lots of great info. I highly recommend a guided tour - without a knowledgeable guide, it would’ve been very confusing.
