The tour by Ennio was 100% EXCELLENT!! Had just a day stop on a cruise ship. Driver picked us up just steps from the ship in a clean new Mercedes Van. Met Ennio and immediately knew he was a great guide!!! He had so much knowledge of ancient artifacts and history. Allowed us to customize our tour, while offering suggestions on how to optimize time. He had all of our tickets pre-purchased and ready, so we skipped the long lines!! Had authentic lunch in a local spot. I would highly recommend this tour!
