Riccardo was amazing! He was friendly and helpful. He patiently answered all of my questions, and he spent as long at a given site as I wanted :) But more importantly, he was passionate about what he was doing. It was clear that he wasn't "just another bored tour guide, repeating the same spiel" but rather an extremely well-informed local who was intimately familiar with the site and all of its history and who clearly delighted in sharing it with us. Riccardo actually offered to stay past our two-hour booking time, just to allow us more time to fully enjoy Herculaneum in depth. Unfortunately, we had to leave to catch our train back to Naples. All in all, this was a fabulous experience, and if I visit other archaeological sites, I will definitely look into having an archaeologist as a guide. Highly recommend!
Fantastic tour of Herculaneum with our guide Raffaele who was really knowledgeable and passionate about the site. He really brought it to life and gave us excellent insights into day to day life in the town. Preferred Herculaneum to Pompeii, smaller and better preserved mosaics. The site was easy to navigate and the guides were efficient and easy to find and deal with. Thoroughly recommended.
Our guide Fabio From Askos tours was fantastic!!! An anthropologist by training, he was able to help us really envision what life must have been like across ancient society. He tailored his discussion to our interests while providing an excellent overview. We really cannot day enough good things about him. If you are lucky enough to visit, try and ask for him by name.
Apart from saving a bit of money having the 3 day pass makes travel and entry into sights so easy and safe. Just one card to keep in your pocket and not having to keep getting a wallet out to pay a few euros for a Metro or train. We also bypassed queues for entry to Pompeii. Well worth it.
Excellent, lively and historically accurate guidance by our tour guide, both in Pompei and Ercolano.
