Excellent tour with a guide who has very deep knowledge about excavations from own experience and thereby can tell brilliant stories about how people lived in Pompei, what buildings were used for etc etc. Strongly recommend this tour!

We learned so much during our guided tour. The stories of everyday Roman life really brought the town to life. It was REALLY interesting and our guide was super knowledgeable!

Enzo was a great guide for our tour through Pompeii. He was a wealth of knowledge and insight, funny, and showed us things away from the main touristy areas that had only been discovered in the last month. This was totally worth the price!
