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.
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.
Although u never got a guide on the trip to take you on the bus it was well worth doing. The bus had a guided talk as u went along and the driver always helped with meeting times and information needed. Both places were great.
Great value ! just beware of misleading tourist touts trying to get you to direct you to alternative products at Pompeii station!
