Paolo is an excellent guide; he has evident passion for and tremendous knowledge of his subject and an ability to explain it lucidly. We selected him for a six hour tour of Pompeii. It was fascinating from beginning to end.

Paolo guided us for the full day tour of Pompeii - and we were not disappointed. Lots of fascinating insights into the history and life in the ancient city. His knowledge of the site was richly enhanced by his deep archeological expertise. So many details we would have missed without his explanation. A most charming, friendly and informative guide who made our visit great fun. Highly recommended.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you!!!

Paolo is a great guide. Through his archaeological involvement with the site and the general area he was able to offer insights and anecdotes that brought the ruins to life. He spoke very clearly and at a level that maintained our interest throughout the seven hour walk. Was also very considerate of our 68 yo legs. We have no hesitation in recommending Paolo as a guide for any site in the Pompeii - Herculaneum area.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you!

Paolo was superb. Very enthusiastic and knowledgeable . Went well past the 6 hours. I thought my kids would be bored but instead they asked a lot of questions and were excited.

How fortunate to have an archeologist as a guide in Pompeii! Paolo was fascinating. He completely engaged my two 13 year old grandsons as well as their grandmothers. Thank you.

Paulo is not just a tour guide! He is a PHD graduate in archaeology and his depth of knowledge of Pompeii is simply stunning. One of the best private guides we have ever had anywhere in the world.

I can't find the words...exceptional, fantastic and beyond expectation don't do the day justice! Paolo may be the best guide I've ever had...and I travel A LOT. His knowledge both of the archaeology, the history and the mythology is superb. He quickly understood my knowledge level and not only expanded my understanding, but challenged me to apply my new knowledge to interpret what I was seeing. Truly, can't think of a single improvement unless he can slow time so the tour never ended!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you!

I have been our private tours with my family from Petra (Jordan) to Pompeii, and Paolo is the finest guide we have ever used. He knew how to wind us through the site so we were (in the height of the season) relatively alone, while huge bus and cruise groups wander around seemingly lost. I am a Professor, and was afraid he may not, actually, be a practicing archeologist. He is, 100%. He met my interest, and those of the group of high school kids on our tour as well. Perfect English, and flexible.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Fabio for this nice review, I appreciate it and it was a real pleasure to meet you, I am happy you had a nice time!!!

There is not better way to see Pompeii! Paolo is not just a tour guide, he's a real expert on Roman history, the process of archeological discovery, and has broad knowledge and understanding of the ancient world that he brings to life amidst the sites of the ancient city. Not to mention that he's a very engaging and pleasant person, and has real passion for what he does. We could not possibly see and understand so much on our own or in a large tour group. This was truly a "once in a lifetime" experience!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Andrei, Thank you very much for the wonderful comment, I appreciate it and it was a pleasure to met you! See you soon!

Paolo was a great tour guide and very knowledgeable about Pompeii. He was also very good at describing things to my nine-year old son and made Pompeii come alive for both my son and I. Paolo is very knowledgeable about Pompeii and I would recommend him for anyone who seeks to know more about the ancient Roman world.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much! I appreciate that you took the time to leave me such a nice review! thank you
