To have Paolo as our guide was so special. His knowledge as an archaeologist is exceptional and made our day as we learnt so much. I recommend this tour with Paolo, it will be a day you will always remember.

Paolo made the tour come alive. He knew everything about Pompei and Herculaneum, and he was witty and funny. He had great true stories about the former inhabitants, and how the eruption worked in the different areas. He was able to personalize our entire experience so we often felt like we were there watching from afar. He involved us in discussion. A bonus - he is a very likeable guy! Thank you, Paolo!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your wonderfull review! Cheers Paolo

Paolo G is an extremely knowledgeable guide. Not only an Archeologist associated with University of Berlin and NYU, Columbia and University of Maryland, he is so well versed in the history of the sites we visited and the country. He speeks excellent English, is funny, witty and makes the day go by too fast. Seeing both Pompeii and Herculaneum on the same day was marvelous as we got a chance to see the different way each City was destroyed, totally different manner. Lunch at a local winery was a bonus.

The tour was amazing and completely worth it. Paolo is very knowledgable and gave us a thorough arquealogical explanation. He always answered out questions and kept them in mind to show us further on examples of what we had asked anout. Having the tour allowed us to visit both places with no lost time and needless walking around, which was essential since it was really hot and we have 2 kids. Our driver was Francesco, who also did an outstanding job, and was on time, very professional and helpful.
I asked Paolo to put together a custom tour, that included 6 hours at Pompeii and 2 hours at Herculaneum. He said no-one had asked for this - all in one day - before! It was a great day. Paolo really knows his stuff. He is a working archaeologist and it shows. We also ran into some of his colleagues as we walked the site and they told me I had the best guide around! The day was a real learning experience for me, and although quite long, it flew by as I found everything so interesting.

What can I say? Paolo was the best guide we have ever had, knowledgeable, kind, a great historian and just a really nice guy. We all learned the history of Pompeii and Hericulium in a way we could understand and enjoy. Due to Paolo's career and background, we would recommend him as a first choice when visiting Naples.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much!

An absolute pleasure! My wife and I booked a tour of Pompeii and Herculaneum with Paolo. The archaeological sites are amazing and Paolo is a fantastic guide. His knowledge is only surpassed by his pleasant and engaging personality. I highly recommend Paolo for this or any Tours by Locals tour you consider.
