Needed more structure. Kids enjoyed the tour guide more, adults wanted a bit more content

This your hit all the major sights in Pompeii. Francesco was really funny and knowledgable. We has a really good time despite it being very hot! Make sure you bring lots of water, a hat and sunscreen if you do this tour during the summer. Overall the tour was really well organized there was no down time we were seeing cool sights and hearing lots of information the whole time. Lots of the major sights were close together so you always felt like there was something to see and take photos of. This was a great experience! Hight recommend!

The tour was excellent, absolutely 10 out of 10. Ilaria, our guide, was highly knowledgeable and passionate about Pompeii. She was also very funny. She could answer any questions and take brought the town alive. The tour was good value for money-we were walking for 3 hours and saw so many of the sights (though realise it would take days to get round the whole place!) My son is 8 and Ilaria made sure he was included in the tour and the content pitched at the right level. It really was a highlight of our holiday. We would recommend it to anyone

This is an awesome Pompeii Tour in every way. Our super knowledgeable and entertaining guide was right at the train station to greet us ( none of that "where's our group" stress). She quickly and efficiently organized our smallish group and had us up into the historic site in no time. Our time was limited and Pompeii is huge, so she had a great sampler route worked out that gave us a good overview of Pompeii history and what life was like in ancient Rome. This is an awesome historic site that did not disappoint. This tour gave you a great insight for further exploration on your own,or if your time here is short ( e.g. cruise ship passenger), you really get a good cross-section of the buried city. Well worth the money and the effort to get there!
