I loved the ear piece radios and our tour guide’s fun and informative tour.

We appreciated the details of our tour which helped us to understand more about Pompeii and their inhabitants. We are happy to recommend this tour to others.

Pompeii- Extremely interesting; climate can be hot- bring drinks & hat!

We had a lovely tour of Pompeii with Ilaria who was so passionate and engaging about the amazing site. We really enjoyed the tour and she gave us great tips on what else to see after the tour ended. I will definitely look out for other opportunities to take a tour with your company. Thank you. Sharon

First, the booking experience with Walks was extremely clear, detailed, and user friendly. The guide arrived at the appointed "Meeting Place" as the instructions indicated on a timely basis. Ilaria was our guide through Pompei, and she was the best guide we have ever experienced! As an experienced archaelogist she knew her topic well along with the accompaning history. Ilaria was never academic or dry but very relational and down to earth, making the topics and tour come alive as if we lived right in Pompei during this era. The total tour was very comprehensive and while there isn't time to see the entire, massive Pompei complex, what we experienced left us with a feeling of a complete experience. Pompei is in my opinion one of the top 10 sites in all of Europe, and perhaps one of the top 25 in all of the world, and I strongly recommend investing the time to see it. And, I highly recommend seeing it with Walks! Craig Pixley

Is Pompeii accessible to people in wheelchairs?
The streets of Pompeii have never been repaved or smoothed over so much of the city is nearly impossible to navigate for those with mobility impairments. If you use a wheelchair there is a special route for you, so please contact our customer service department for details.
