site is incredible. Tour guide offered a wonderful knowledgeable informative tour that explained and highlighted many of the wonderful things to see here. Well worth the $$ to get the education while walking through. he was also funny and entertaining. it was beastly hot while we were there and tour guide was mindful of that.

Roberta was an amazing guide, she brought Pompeii to life, with so many fascinating facts and enthusiasm. Our kids (aged 11) loved it as well. Really pleased we went with this tour and not just an audio guide. It was a small group with plenty of opportunity to ask questions.

wonderful guide, knowledgable, entertaining, informative and interesting. my only suggestion would be that the guide needs to make himself more obvious. He was supposed to be standing with a sign with names on it, but was not. a lot of people gather there for tours so we spent a few minutes panicked that we had missed the tour.
