Mariachiara was a brilliant, knowledgeable guide.

Mariachiara was a brilliant, knowledgeable guide. She had a deep knowledge of Pompei and Roman and pre-Roman life. Her Art History degree background shone through. Her excelllent English of course made a big difference for us. We would not hesitate to recommend Mariachiara for a private guided tour of Pompeii.

Unsere Führern hat uns (2 Personen) pünktlich an der Haltestelle der Circumvesuviana abgeholt. Wir hatten einen hoch interessanten Rundgang, Auf unsere individuellen Wünsche wurde eingegangen. Als in Hamburg studierte Archäologin war unsere Führerin sowohl fachlich, als auch sprachlich eine hervorragende Begleitung. Leider waren nicht alle Villen zu unserer Besuchszeit zugänglich. Der hohe Anteil an Großgruppen von Kreuzfahrtschiffen erschwerte an vielen Stellen die Betrachtung.
