We're so glad we book this tour with Hilary previously an archeologist her depth of knowledge and passion shone through whilst on the 3 hour tour. Length was great, not too fast a pace and we could stay longer if required.

This tour contained everything they said it would, and the tour guide was very knowledgeable and spoke very good English. Pompeii is much larger than most people think, so having a guide—if only for the sake of finding all the best spots—is a good idea.

Groups for this tour are limited to a maximum of 15 people (ours was only 8), which makes it fairly easy to move around and for the guide to interact with the group - a BIG PLUS! Our knowledgeable guide spoke excellent English and was both informative and entertaining. The tour
