    As Pompei is so massive, we decided to take a guided tour and it was well worth it. Our guide was an archeologist and provided information we wouldn’t have been able to easily find otherwise. She made sense of the mazes of ruins. Awesome job...More

    Our tour guide Paola was fabulous! Very knowledgeable and informative! Would highly recommend doing Pompeii with a tour guide as it can be very confusing. Went 3 years ago without one and learned so much more this time around!

    The tour by Antonio was very interesting, the only thing I regret is not having done the tour in the morning so that I could have had longer to explore Pompeii. Thank you for bringing the past back to life!

    Is appropriate for the kids, you can do the tour on your own but you will probably miss a lot about the history. I don’t know about Mt. Vesuvius we did not go there. There is a lot to see in Pompeii and is easy walking, we... More
