We absolutely loved our tour of Pompeii with Fabrizio! He met our group right on the train platform and took us on a 2 1/2 hour tour around the ruins. He was engaging, funny, knowledgeable, and excited to share his extensive knowledge of Pompeii with us. He recommended other interesting places to explore in Pompeii after we finished our tour and even told us where we could get a good lunch. We will definitely hire him again when we return to the area and would not hesitate to recommend him to others.

Fabrizio was a great guide in the Pompeii ruins, very well educated in the history, answered all of our questions, made suggestions for other tours, which we will look into. Great experience and will recommend.

Outstanding tour by very knowledgeable guide. His international educational experience makes his tour extremely informative and enjoyable. Fabrizio taught us much about Pompeii. I highly recommend him as a guide.
What an amazing character is Fabrizio. Energetic, passionate, informative, knowledgeable and fun :) Exceptional tours through Pompeii and Herculaneum gave us the behind the scenes information that would be lost on the average visitor. Fast and efficient service, prompt and attentive. We could not recommend Fabrizio any more highly. Thank you for an amazing tour that will stay with us for a very long time.

Fabrizio provided us an excellent overview of Pompeii, hitting many of the important sites within the ancient city. His expert commentary made what we were seeing come alive. His knowledge of the history, art and everyday life of Pompeii made the tour more interesting. Fabrizio knew how to strategically bypass crowded areas on a hot day and backtrack so as not to miss sites that we hadn't seen. He made the best use of our time. An excellent tour guide.
The tour of Pompeii was designed wth our needs and time frame in mind. Fabrizio was able to give us an insight into life in Pompeii though well selected building visits. He also explained very well what happened in the eruption of Vesuvius. What shone through was Fabrizio's knowledge and passion for the subject of Pompeii. He is very articulate and is able to impart his knowledge to adults and children with charm and verve, but also with sensitivity and discretion. Fabulous!

Our tour guide, Fabrizio, was wonderful and extremely knowledgeable. Fabrizio packed a lot into our 2.5 hour tour of Pompeii including recently opened buildings and one not open to the general public during our tour. Since Pompeii is so vast, you will be overwhelmed without the help of a tour guide. I highly recommend hiring Fabrizio as your tour guide. Pompeii is amazing and so is Fabrizio!

Fabrizio gave an outstanding tour, detailed, answered questions.
The Best Guide Ever! We've had several guided trips in Italy. Fabrizio was so knowledgeable, had such a great sense of humour and was so patient answering questions of all sorts.Fabrizio is an excellent guide for Pompeii . I wish we'd booked him for other tours we took from our base in Sorrento.

Fabrizio's passion for archeology and history is evident and contagious- he was obviously very knowledgeable as he answered every question we had satisfactorily. We appreciated that he was mindful of our interests. My husband and I had with us our 3 children aged 16, 14 and 7.
Parfait pour une famille. Très intéressant! Nous le suggérons à tous. Fabrizio était exceptionnel!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Merci Stephan! à la prochaine...

Fabrizio was energetic, knowledgeable, interesting, and most of all concerned with our needs. This was our second visit to Pompeii, but it was the most memorable due to Fabrizio's guidance. I would recommend him very highly to anyone interested in any of his guided tours.

Kristin LangrillUnited States
Fabrizio gave an excellent tour of the city of Pompeii filled with details and stories behind nearly everything we saw. His information gave so much more depth and meaning to the ruins we saw and everyone in our group came away with a vivid image of life in the ancient city.
Francis GeracePalmetto, FL, United States
Fabrizio was fantastic! He has a wonderful command of Italian history and culture. He has a great personality and excellent communication skills. We enjoyed our time with him so much that we plan on returning to Naples in the future and engage him as out guide again.
Marla ReidUnited States
Fabrizio was a wonderful, personable, very humorous and extremely knowledgable guide at Pompeii. His passion for Pompeii is obvious. He was very patient with our large (36) group, and made our time there one of the highlights of our entire trip. He is very easy to understand, and also, as an extra bonus, very handsome! Our entire group gives Frabrizio the highest rating possible and extends our warmest "grazie" to him!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: grazie to you dear Marla, hope to see you again some day, maybe share a glass of wine, ciao! fabrizio
Fabrizio was fantastic! So knowledgable, warm, friendly, and easy to be with. Pompeii came alive for us with his stories of what was. As well he took us to a newer site of a massive villa, which was incredible. Please don't hesitate to use Fabrizio as your tour guide and you will have a fantastic time in Pompeii. Much better than going with a large group where there is not one to one communication and too many people trying to see all the sites. He can taylor the tour to your liking.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Grazie Ellen!! fabrizio

Fabrizio was a brilliant Guide for our visit to Pompei. We were a party of seven including three teenagers and he kept us interested throughout the three hour tour. He was prompt, courteous, easily understood and incredibly knowledgeable, not just on the history of Pompei but also Italian and world history, and current affairs. I would highly recommend Fabrizio as a Guide.
If you are going to Pompei, get Fabrizio as a guide....that simple. You won't be disappointed. Highly recommended. thanks for a great tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you dear Marthy, take care! fabrizio

Fabrizio was Awesome! I was looking forward so much to seeing Pompeii, and i had no idea how vast it was, there's no way we would have gotten as much out of the experience as we did if it wasn't for Fabrizio, we learned so much, which made the trip much more full, he was very knowagleable, spending the kind of money we did to go there , this was the only way to make it worth while, he also helped us with our next stop, about what to do and how to get there, he is very much a local, thanks again Fabrizio
Gail MurrayUnited States
We could not have been happier with our tour of Pompeii with Fabrizio. He is so knowledgeable, personable, humorous and thorough. We learned so much about the history and art of Pompeii, as well as about the culture, both then and now. Fabrizio was nothing short of the perfect tour guide. We will definitely request him during our next trip to Italy. We would give him more than 5 stars!

Pam ScottUnited States
Fabrizio was a truly excellent guide. He is very knowledgeable and has a passion for this work. He showed us areas that we may not have seen on our own and was able to provide great descriptions of what he showed us. We're recommending him to a friend that will be going to Italy soon. He was on time and very friendly. He made Pompeii come alive for us.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Pam, I hope to see you again! ciao, fabrizio

Fabrizio conducted my 15 year old grandson and I on a well planned, interesting tour. As we passed huge crowds with yelling guides, I was so happy that we had Fabrizio with excellent English and who knows how to negotiate the maze of Pompeii. He was also gracious to a lady with a bad ankle, helping me onto and off of uneven pavement. I highly recommend him and Tours by Locals. Dr. Martha Davis

First sorry for putting this review in so late (forgot). Fabrizio was fantastic, such detail you did not get from the audio guide. People were gravitating to our tour which was just my family of 4. Well worth the money, Fabrizio is very knowledgeable.
We thoroughly enjoyed our tour of Pompeii with Fabrizio. His knowledge of the site was impressive and his english was excellent. As a group of four with two in their mid twenties and two over fifties we were all equally captivated by his commentary and would highly recommend him as a guide.
Unni N KrogsaeterNorway
We got a great guide. Nice, he knows a lot and have sense of humor. It was a great tour as well. We learn a lot. I recommend this tour and this guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Unni, thanks for your review, next time you will be my guide in Norway! ciao, fabrizio
Caitlen DanielsUnited States
Ancient Pompeii is fascinating, yet I am certain our group would not have enjoyed our visit half as much without Fabrizio. He was excellent! We were a group of 9, with two children. Fabrizio was very knowledgeable and patient, taking time to answer questions and accommodate varying interests. In particular, we appreciated the opportunity to tour areas otherwise unavailable to visitors. Fabrizio's stories and his interest in our experience at the park conveyed his professionalism throughout. Thank you!
