Stefano was amazing! I was really worried because there were so many options for tours in Pompeii. I did as much research as I could and I picked this one. So glad I did. I was a few minutes late and he was standing there with my name on a sign, which was very helpful. Very knowledgeable. Super polite, it was a small group so we all got to ask questions and hear everything. I highly recommend.

A joy!

We really enjoyed our tour of Pompeii with Antonietta. She was so knowledgeable and funny. We definitely wouldn't have had the same experience if we had toured the site alone, there were so many small details we would have missed. After the tour we felt more prepared to explore alone, and stayed on site for a further three hours! I would like to thank Antonietta especially for her advice regarding travel in the days preceding the tour. Real attention to detail which helped us enormously. Many thanks again!
