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.
