Iliana was extremely knowledgeable and she presented the information in a well organized manner. Iliana took us through Herculaneum, and was she was talking about something, it was then demonstrated with something we were directly passing by. I would highly recommend Iliana to anyone as the tour time flew by. She was super nice and extremely knowledgeable. Highly recommend!!!

Ilaria was extremely accommodating in working with our time frame and emailing us back and forth even before we left the USA. She was very knowledgable and spoke English beautifully. She picked and chose the most and best things to see in each of the locations so as not to overwhelm us but to give us the flavor of the experience. She even allowed us the time to have a picnic lunch in between the different tours and accompanied us on the train home. We would highly recommend her.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Felicia. I had a wonderful day with you all!

Our family of 4 spent a fantastic day in Pompeii and Herculaneum with Ilaria. She was kind, enthusiastic, and knowledgeable about the subject matter as well as the logistics of getting to, from, and around the sites. Our 10-year-old was riveted and tells everyone it was the highlight of our 2 weeks in Italy. My husband and I studied ancient history and architecture at the postgraduate level, and we learned a lot too.

Ilaria was a wonderful tour guide so knowledgeable and passionate about Pompeii. We could not have asked for a better tour. We had 6 in our group including 3 children ages 6, 9, and 11. It was fast paced enough to keep the children interested and she had wonderful stories of life in Pompeii. I would recommended the early morning tour there were no crowds and much better than fighting the midday heat. I would recommend Ilaria to anyone who wants a great and informative tour.

Ilaria was a fantastic tour guide, my wife and I spent the day visiting Pompeii and Villa di Poppaea with her and enjoyed every minute. She is VERY knowledgeable, enthusiastic, friendly, and accommodating. We had a fun day, learned a about Roman history and the region - she knows all of the best parts of Pompeii, both famous and not, and has endless stories and anecdotes which made the history come alive. We strongly recommend her and will surely hire her again for our next visit to Italy.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Stuart It will be a pleasure to welcoming again in your next trip in Italy! Thank you Ilaria

Ilaria was a fantastic tour guide, my wife and I spent the day traveling the Amalfi Coast with her and enjoyed every minute. She is knowledgeable, enthusiastic, friendly, and accommodating. We had a fun day, learned a lot about the small towns along the way (Positano, Amalfi, etc)- she knows all of the best sites, both famous and not, and has endless stories and anecdotes which made the history and region come alive. We strongly recommend her and will surely hire her again for our next visit to Italy.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Stuart Thank you very much for taking the time to write such beautiful review. Thank you for your interest! Ilaria
Ilaria met with us at a local restaurant she recommended, the "Caupona" and we were so glad of her recommendation, because everything started perfectly. As for Ilaria, we both enjoyed very much her knowledge, her passion and she gave us great insights and made sure we were comfortable with the pace. Thanks to her vivid descriptions she made Pompeii "alive" again! My husband and I cannot recommend her enough! Thank you Ilaria for making our day and visit to Pompeii so exciting and interesting.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Juliette I spent a wonderful day with you. Thank you very much for your review and enjoy your holidays! Ilaria

I'd highly recommend IlariaPompeii was fascinating and Ilaria was a great guide, very knowledgeable, and I'm so glad we visited with a guide rather than on our own. Naples ... We needed more time. Next time we will focus more on the Gastronomic delights available in Naples. Ideally I'd recommend a two day tour. Day one visit Pompeii with lunch in the middle maybe more time in Pompeii or to see Erculaneum or a trip up to Visisuveus as an option. Day two eating and sightseeing your way mostly walking.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Richard, I'm so glad you enjoy the tour of Pompeii and Naples. You're right, Naples deserves more time and it can offers an unforgettable food experience! This is an invitation to come back with your family! Thank you again Ilaria
