Our guide did a fantastic job, and we are so happy we chose to book with Walks of Italy upon Lonely Planet's recommendation. We unpacked so many layers of history, but in a very accessible way. Would definitely send friends to do a tour with you in the future

Paolo was a great tour guide! He shared so many stories and details of the ruins that we would have missed without a guide - he was also careful to position us in the shade as it was a hot day. We had enough free time to take photos and explore on our own. At the end of the tour, he shared recommendations for pizza in Naples.

This was a fantastic tour and I couldn't recommend it more. Paolo was friendly and knowledgeable. The beauty of a guided tour is that you can tap into a vast amount of information that we otherwise would not have known. Paolo's titbits of information about Pompeii life and the various houses, temples, shops and structures were highly valuable and made our Pompeii experience unforgettable.

We had an excellent guide. Sonia was so informative and made it a thoroughly enjoyable experience.. Please pass on a huge thank you to her. Unfortunately we did not have time to thank her ourselves as we had to rush off to another tour.

Sonia was tremendous! She has passion and made Pompeii come alive for us. She is very good and we really enjoyed immensely. Thank you.

Guide was excellent

Excellent and informative tour. Sonia was very knowledgeable on all things Roman and the history of Pompei. She was friendly and warm, answered all questions politely (even some of the silly ones!). Her knowledge of the site was great and meant that if something was busy or perhaps closed off, she could offer alternatives. Before we did the tour we’d recommended it to some people we met on a cycling tour in Rome. I’m happy with that recommendation and would happily recommend further. Sonia also advised on dining options and we had a very enjoyable lunch. A brilliant experience and much of that is accredited to our guide. Please pass on our gratitude. Joan and Andrew Barker.

Our guide was clearly passionate about Pompeii. Her details brought to life the town and people of the past. She spent extra time explaining things. Great tour.
