Pompeii is incredible and not to be missed if you are traveling in the area. Our guide was exceptional! Being an archeologist that actually worked on multiple excavations at Pompeii allowed him to provide us with invaluable information. We would have never learned so much and appreciated the visit as much without having our guide.

We made the visit to Pompeii with a guide in Spanish contracted on your website It was a highly positive experience because of what we learned "in situ" of what we knew by reading Excellent work carried out by the archaeologist researchers From the visit we also highlight the guide as a high point who accompanied us María Laura Very clear, with very interesting details and anecdotes, always attentive to the group being complete and answering questions At the end of the guided tour she suggested places to continue alone and explained how to get there In short, a very good experience Recommended

Miguel was knowledgeable and incredibly interesting. The tour was focused on what we know about Pompeii and it’s inhabitants through archeological discoveries and applied to tell a vibrant story of both life and death. I highly recommend this tour. The head-sets were an excellent way to hear and did a good job of keeping us together in a small group.
