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!
Beautiful experience. Herculaneum is a gem to visit. Smaller than Pompeii, it can be visited almost entirely in the two hours of the guided tour. Our guide Alessandra was very good and at the same time very prepared. Really recommended tour
Renato was very competent, available, prepared. Arriving on time, he contextualized the visit by answering our questions always politely. Being only three made it all the more enjoyable
Raffaele was exceptional, he told us the story of Herculaneum with passion and enthusiasm. Highly recommended!
An extremely informative and technically sound tour!
