The tour company was great. We were a tiny bit late due to missing our train out of Naples and they said no problem. We were the only 4 in the group so it was super personalized. Our guide was so informative, animated, and even offered to buy us coffee. We had some crazy weather with hail, sideways rain, and wind. Even though we were all cold he did a great job of finding covered spots to tell us information. We would all definitely recommend this tour and this guide (can't remember his name, but see him in our pictures).
Excellent tour bringing history to life
Piers_S, Aug 2020
Our tour of Pompeii was brought to life by the incredible knowledge and amazing personality of our tour guide, Clare (sorry forgive us for not writing your proper Italian name!). Clare clearly cares about Pompeii and finds the history of Vesuvius and Pompeii fascinating. She brought the whole town to life for us and our 2 children (age 10 & 12). Her English was also excellent. We can not recommend this tour highly enough and Clare was our star. Thank you Clare - you are a special person and so caring for our daughter who found the heat of Pompeii quite intense!

Our tour lady was fab. Informative, factual, lively and full of passion. Two hours was enough and then your free to roam where you like. The train station is located within a five minute walk. Top tip very hot be prepared.
