Roberto was really helpful, re-arranging the day because of snow(!) . He met us promptly and was charming sharing his extensive knowledge in the most interesting , informative way. We felt we had not only seen the best of Pompeii and Herculaneum but that we had been given a real insight into how the towns worked and how people lived . To say it was educational makes it sound dry which it never was . Nothing was rushed and everything interesting especially the small telling details . Superb . Use Roberto !
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Scott and Ashley! Was a pleasure for me show you the buried cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum!

Roberto is knowledgeable and patient. His tour of both Pompeii and Herculeneum provided lots of information, answered lots of questions and gave us a new appreciation of these civilizations through their way of life, structures and art.

Dr. Roberto M is as awesome as his degree! Very knowledgeable in many fields relating to Pompeii and Herculaneum, and the perfect guide for those interested in geology, ancient local history, volcanology, architecture, anthropology. Beautifully planned tour of both historical and fascinating historical sites. Very comfortable pacing of the tour, obviously cares about the comfort of his guests whilst on tour. Polite and professional. I had a very interesting and fascinating day. Thanks, Roberto!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Andrea! It was a pleasure for me to guide you!
Our tour with Dr. Roberto M. is truly deserving of 5 stars - I would give it 6 stars if that option was available! Dr. Roberto M had the knowledge, expertise, and ability to make these places 'come alive' for us. In addition, he was exceptionally good at integrating other relevant aspects of history, society, and culture into the explanations of the places we were experiencing. 2 Thumbs Up for this tour!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Trudy for these wonderful words!

I can't imagine a better way to experience 2 of the most famous archeological sites in the world than with a Doctor of Archaeology. Having worked internationally at many sites, Roberto gave a thorough tour. He provided historical details and brought these ancient cities to life- all with a good sense of humour! A perfect balance which made for a very enjoyable day. I highly recommend!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ciao Monica! Thank you so much for this nice review! It was a real pleasure for me to show you the two roman cities buried by the Vesuvius!

Customizing my tour is what I like about toursbylocals and our qualified guide Roberto did just that. There were four of us and we had a day tour of Pompeii and Herculaneum. Roberto made sure we saw both sights adequately within the time constraints, as we needed to get back to Rome that day, and provided transportation for us from Pompeii to Herculanium. It was obvious Roberto knows his subject of Roman life and architecture. Highly recommend Roberto.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Steve! Thank you very much

Roberto was excellent! Very knowledgable. Without him, we would never have known what we were looking at! He was a very good sport- it was extremely cold the day that we went. Vesuvius was covered in snow! I highly recommend Roberto.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Patricia, thank you very much! That day the atmosphere in Pompeii and Herculaneum with the Vesuvius covered in snow was magical!!!
Maxine HeywoodUnited Kingdom
Roberto was very informative and patient with us. His English was fluent. He was charming, especially as we managed to get on two wrong trains and were an hour and a half late!! Sorry Roberto. We thoroughly enjoyed our tour. Highly recommend this service. We all felt that we had a far better experience by having a private guided tour. Thank you Roberto! Maxine Heywood.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Max! Thank you very much for this nice review! It was a pleasure for me guide your beautiful family!

Roberto is extremely knowledgeable and our family loved seeing Pompeii and the museum through his archaeologist's perspective. It was even better with a delicious Neapolitan pizza-- he took us to his favorite spot. If you are looking for a guide who speaks great English, and who is generous and patient with sharing his wisdom, he is your man!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Wendy!It was a great day and it was a pleasure for me show you my favourite Pizzeria in Napoli (a little treasure away from tourist routes)
