Ilijah was an execeptional guide. We had a great time with her during the Pompeii tour. The tour has asked her so many questions and so could give a lot of intelligent answers. We learnt many new stuff regarding this historic old town.

Fabulous tour of Pompeii! Ilary was very knowledgeable and showed us many interesting things that no one else was looking at. She kept us out of the crowds and really gave us a great tour. Pompeii itself was incredible, a unique unadulterated view into the Roman lifestyle. Highly recommend.
