Rossana was a great guide for kids and parents alike
Aug 2020
We booked a tour with Rossana as we read good reviews before and since we are a German-American family, we like the fact that she was able to speak both, German and English.
The tour went on for about 2 hours and Rossana was really great with the kids, especially as they were a little tired due to the heat. She always involved them into her tour, so they told me later how much they liked her and everything about Pompeji.
Rossana also explained a lot and had answers to all questions. I would highly recommend her. She also gave a little gift to all three kids at the end to have a memory of Pompeji. Thank you!

Fantastic tour with very knowledgeable guide
Just a quick note to say that this was a well paced, thoroughly interesting tour. Livio, our guide, studied archeology and wider regional and world history and this meant his answers were all based on broad understanding and given context. Thank you!

Just amazing!!!
The tour with Lino was just amazing!!!
He is truly outstanding not only as a tour guide but he is also a marvelous and utmost knowledgeable educator full of wisdom, humor, empathy and joy. It has been a real privilege discovering Pompei under his spell. We could not have wished for better time that unfortunately flew by at a blink of an eye...
Please give him our very best regards and deepest gratitude for the time we have been able to spend all together.

Private Tour is way to do Pompei
Mar 2020
Ciao Tours of Vancouver arranged for a driver - Roberto, in Naples who took us to Pompei where Michael, an Archeology Major but not an Archeologist, gave us the 2.5-3 hr tour of Pompei. We were there on 3/6/2020 so there were no crowds due to conovirus. When we arrived Michael met us at the entrance. Since this was a private tour, he took us to areas which he thought would be of interest. The Brothel was under construction and was closed. The Baths were closed due to the Coronavirus restriction - they did not have enough air movement. The first area we visited was the museum with the body cast (best preserved) we could not go in area, coronavirus, but could look through window. Michael explained how the cast were done and what the scientist did when he found them.
Michael, you could tell, loved Pompei and really enjoyed sharing his view. Since we were free styling, he wasn't handcuffed to seeing this and this and this but rather the highlights of what he thought we should see. It also helped that no one was there. Usually it is shoulder to shoulder. Why a private guide (for just us 2). The right private guide is licensed and an expert on the site. They don't read a script but know the place and can answer questions which you may have. Granted they may have heard the questions before but at least the Guide is knowledgeable about the site and can answer most questions. Because we were not rushed, got to see all in Pompei, we got the treat to see the Villa of Mysteries in which the wedding scene was just uncovered 1909 which was much later than most of Pompei. The paintings were gorgeous. Ciao Tours piced a great guide for us in Michael and the driver Robert worked great meeting us at the train station and bringing us to Pompei.

Pompeii
Dec 2019
Fantastic tour - so interesting, funny, fun and engaging! Our guide Lello had so many interesting facts and stories - really gave us a great sense of what Pompeii was all about. Over two hours on our feet and touring flew by because it was so much fun! We were also very appreciative of the pickup from the train from Rome and ride back - all easy and comfortable. Also, Ilaria was very communicative and nice to work with to book the tour and make all of the travel arrangements!

Private Pompeii tour
Lello (Rafaello) an archaeologist, was our amazing private tour guide! He guided our group of 8 plus a 6 month old expertly through the key highlights of Pompeii and brought this fascinating ancient city to life for us with imagery, humor and fascinating stories! This was the best possible way we could utilize our limited time to visit Pompeii! Very professional service from booking through the end of the tour!! Highly recommended!! Thank you!!!

Even my 9yo son enjoyed it!
Dec 2019
This was a thoroughly enjoyable day, and that is, without question, 100% due to our guide, Italo. On this tour were me and my three kids -- ages 9, 12, and 22. Italo made the tour fun, informative, funny, exciting, and interesting. His sense of humor and enthusiasm was contagious!! He was able explain things to us in a way that interested and amused my kids very much, and I learned lots of things that I never knew before!

Perfect length of tour, perfect pacing, perfect amount of information, and overall the perfect guide for us.

By the way, we made this into a day trip from Rome -- got ourselves to Pompeii and back by way of Naples, all by train. It was very easy to do, and SO MUCH CHEAPER than hiring a car or riding a bus there.

Fantastic way to spend a half day!
Oct 2019
From the moment we booked with Llaria to when we were collected by Paolo from Sorrento to being delivered smoothly to Pompei into the care of Loretta our guide we knew we were in good hands. Loretta was both knowledgeable but also great fun. She looked after us, entertained us, educated us on all areas of ancient Pompeii and clearly loves to share her passion for the place. Thank you for a amazing few hours! Highly recommend.

Well worth paying the extra!
Oct 2019
If we could rate this trip any higher we would, well worth every penny. Our tour guide Roberta was fabulous..5* She was so knowlegable, informative & friendly. My mum has a walking cane so was concerned she may keep everyone back (the main reason we booked a private tour) & Roberta was so considerate in every way. She was right on time at the meeting point, explained everything, suggested we get bottles of water (which you can refill at fountains throughout the tour) & made sure we saw everything we wanted to see and more. Comfortable shoes are a must along with a hat. There are also some toilets. This tour was exactly as described & seeing some of the very large crowds in the other tours available we are glad we choose this one for just the 5 of us. Get booking, you wont regret it!
