The guided tour was really good on gettng history of Pompeii. As luck would have it I have it, I had the guide to myself. Definitely worth doing.

★★★★

Anna, February 2020

Our guide (Rachella) spoke very good English and had all kind of interesting things to mention about living in those ages. The guided tour was with earphones so she was always understandable. Visiting pompeii without a guided tour is not a good idea. There’s so much to see that you have no idea where to start. After the 2 hours tour you can visit pompeii by yourself.

This tour was so worth it! Our guide was very friendly and knowledgeable. We were told so many interesting things that I never would have learned had I visited without the tour.
