This was a fantastic tour. Michele was an outstanding guide and told us so many interesting things about Pompeii. He was knowledgeable and passionate about the site and it came through in his presentation. We we’re met early and the 3 hours flew by. I can’t imagine seeing Pompeii any other way. Without Michele’s knowledge and insight we would have missed so much of what was literally right in front of us or under our feet.

Best way to visit Pompei

My wife and I booked a 3 hour tour. We wanted a special experience and we wanted to avoid the mass tourist tour experience of Pompei. We wanted to take our time and go beyond the tourist path. We were pleased with our guide, Mena, she was really nice and pleasant to listen to, she provided great historical context and details about the various sites in Pompei. We could ask all the questions we wanted, we could take our time, and never had to rush anywhere. She gave us great tips about what to visit next when the tour was finished. I wish we could have booked her for 2 or 3 more hours.

Highly recommended tour

I booked this 3 hours private tour since I wanted to have a full immersion in the history of Pompeii. My guide was an expert archaeologist who had taken part to excavations at the site, that's why she was so knowledgeable and passionate about these sites and the histories behind them. She was able to bring the city back to life! It was great to walk with her in a small group and ask questions at leisure. I highly recommend this tour to every passionate in hystory, you won't regret it!
