Our guide arranged a pick-up place close to the ruins and was punctual and fluent in English. She made sure we understood what was said and met every question with a comprehensive answer. She was very friendly and approachable and I would definitely recommend this activity.

Small group of just 7 which was perfect. Our guide was Sasa and he gave us lots of information during the day which made it very enjoyable. Wear your comfortable shoes and bring a bottle of water as the heat can be fierce in Pompeii. A great day, would definitely recommend!

Our guide Salvatore (Sasa) was wonderful. He was a 3rd generation guide as well as being from the area. He shared stories and was able to remove us from crowded areas to share great spots and was humorous too. Highly recommend this one.
