    Our tour guide Lello was just outstanding, he was excellent with my children and extremely knowledgeable. Louise organised our pick up and Angelo was punctual and very friendly. Thank you for a memorable tour.

    I wanted to visit Pompeii ever since I was a child and we were very lucky to come across Tours of Pompeii. Our guide Filomena was very nice, friendly and very knowledgeable. We were slightly late for the tour but she met us with a smile on her face and was very helpful with the tickets. I would strongly recommend hiring a guide to visit Pompeii otherwise touring it on your own can be quite confusing since there is very little signage. I just wish our overall impression of Italy was as positive as our trip to Pompeii and Mena was the nicest and friendliest person we had met in Italy. The staff at PTOP was very professional and reliable. Overall, it was a great experience and I wish we also had toured Herculaneum and surrounding area with Mena. Thank you Tours of Pompeii and keep up the good work.

    Our family of four, took the guided tour with Margherita on August 1rst. While the site of Pompeii is impressive on its own, we all felt that having a Margherita guide us through the site added immeasurably to the experience. She is extremely knowledgeable about the history and culture of ancient Rome and the Pompeii catastrophe and conveyed information about the ruins and life of Pompeii in a way that was stimulating and accessible for both us and our teenage boys. Margherita responded thoughtfully to our questions and did a great job of pacing the tour. Simply a great way to see the site. Made us wish we had someone like Margherita along with us at other ruins we visited in Italy. Highly recommended.

    I highly recommend anyone visiting pompeii to take a private tour with please do not waste your time in looking any further. From the moment I made my first enquiry by email asking questions ...dates, times, cost involved etc I can honestly say how delighted I was with the excellent communication I received. I took my two sons to Italy and having visited Pompeii myself before wished my sons to have the experience of this truly wonderful amazing place. We were met off the train by Lello our guide for the tour and he was just amazing! You could not wish for a better guide to show you around the site. He was kind, polite, extremely helpful and caring of our needs and took us around the site following our pace.... his tour was "fantastico" ...his knowledge was second to none! My boys loved the tour ..we could not fault a thing from start to finish...thank you so much for a truly amazing experience and making our day in pompeii such a memorable one. So for all of you out there who are searching for a guided tour...look no further.

    Pompeii was one of the stops on our week long European trip with our teenage kids. Though we visited many sites and took quite a few tours from several different tour companies, this one was by far the best. Lello was the reason. He was very knowledgeable, entertaining, tailored the tour to our kids, and made this tour the highlight of our trip. Planning the tour was very easy. We booked via email and took a train from Rome. Louise coordinated everything, was very responsive and helpful. Great overall experience!
