Great Tour!

Lucia made our visit to Herculaneum & Pompeii a special experience. Her knowledge of the area helped us understand what life 2000 years ago was like. She was very easy to understand & her enthusiasm for the sites gave us a great perspective! And Umberto was a great driver!
Excellent tour

An informative tour by a very knowledgable guide. She was very enthusiastic and made the sites interesting for us. However this "full day" tour was over by 2 pm followed by lunch. I would prefer a longer day as there was lots more to see (our amalfi coast tour finished 5pm!)

Lucia, our guide, and her husband, our driver, were both professional and engaging. Having previously visited Pompeii, I assumed that the tour would be redundant. I was both surprised and impressed. Lucia provided us incredible insight into the life of each site. Her language skills are excellent, exceeded only by her knowledge of the subject. Herculaneum was totally amazing - small but such a story and fabulous ruins. This tour was paced well and provided all of us in our group a clear understanding of each site and the life of the people. Well worth the cost of a private tour!
