The tour was great, instant confirmation, everything clear about the meeting point. The guide spoke really good English and we all had earphones, so that we can all hear her well. The guide also had a lot of information and pictures to share. It was a very well organized tour, we didn't wait anywhere for too long and it was designed to truly get the maximum out of those two hours and see and learn as much as you can. I'm very happy to have chosen this company and this tour. Pompeii ruins are amazing and really a must-see place. It is incredible how well preserved it is and how even today it looks like a city with streets, houses. It's not like other archeological places, where you recognize just bits and pieces, here you really get a feeling of how the life looked like.

Such an amazing, knowledgeable tour! Had a bit of rain and got a bit wet but it was all part of a great experience (maybe pack an umbrella as they don’t sell them inside. Good for sun or rain!). We dropped luggage at the entry of the Pompeii site and all was good. Thanks again!

We absolutely loved our guide! Ricardo was very informative and passionate about Pompeii. Even at the end of the tour he suggested things to see that he thought was interesting. You’ll be lucky to have him as a guide!

Maria was a great guide. Her stories really brought Pompeii to life. Very enjoyable.

The guide Francesca is just superb! Would recommend!
