A Recent Review of this tour

Paolo is the best guide I have ever had, using private guides all over the world. He is well educated in the subject and combines what could be a dry recital into a fun adventure. We spent seven hours with him seeing Herculaneum, Oplontis, and Pompeii. We enjoyed so much being in the moment of the information, that we forgot to take pictures! I recommend Paolo as the best ever.
