We loved our day long tour of Pompeii, Herculaneum and Oplontis which was made even our guide Paolo! It was the highlight of our Italy vacation. The splendor of these ancient ruins is magnificent to see and well worth all of the walking we did. We greatly enjoyed the history and many fascinating stories that Paolo told. He was like a walking archaeology encyclopedia full of valuable information and tales about the people that once lived in these cities. We highly recommend this tour company!

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.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Barbara thank you, I'm honoured! hope to see you soon back in Pompeii!
Paolo was a fantastic guide. Very friendly, with excellent English, and SO knowledgeable. As an archaeologist, his knowledge and passion for the sites we visited was absolutely excellent!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for you nice words Anna!
To sum up the guided tour of Herculaneum, Oplontis and Pompeii with Paolo in one word is "awesome". He definitely knows his stuff and brings these places to life with his expertise. Book a tour with Paolo, you will NOT be disappointed.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much, hope to have you back in Italy sooner or later!
We spent a very enjoyable day touring the highlights of Pompeii, Herculaneum, and Oplontis, with Paolo. It was the first time we have been on a tour with a professional archaeologist. Paolo's detailed knowledge greatly enhanced our experience. He is a friendly fellow who obviously enjoys sharing the sites with his clients. We enjoyed our day with him very much.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Dean, Thank you for this review! I appreciate it, it was a pleasure to meet you, hope to see you in the future for another tour!

Nothing like a real, working archaeologist to guide you. Relaxed, passionate, superbly knowledgeable, humorous, like an old friend and favorite teacher in one guide. My friend, our 22 yr. old daughters and I were blown away. I'm an amateur history nut. Rest of the group: newbies to Roman history. All of us equally satisfied. Pompeii, Herculaneum and Oplontis leaped to life through Paolo's expertise and vibrant descriptions. He debunked myths and put myth and fact into context. We had a blast.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for this beautiful comment!

BEST TOUR AND GUIDE EVER! I have traveled extensively and have taken many tours and this is the BEST by far. My family was looking forward to this tour, I didn't really care to see the sites. That changed because of Paolo's knowledge, enthusiasm, ability to impart information, love of archeology, and love of the area. It made this an unforgettable experience. Paolo gave the information in a way that ties the past to the present.5 hours of tour and we still wanted more. Book with Paolo NOW! The BEST!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much! for leaving such a wonderful review, I really appreciate it!
