Excellent trip. Dr. Paolo was very passionate about his work and made Pompeii come alive with the stories and interesting facts. The 3 hours flew passed and doing the trip at 1600H was very clever as the spaces were quiet and at times we felt as if we were the only people "living there"! Thanks Paolo for a fascinating experience!

We had the pleasure of having Paolo as our tour guide in Pompeii, and he was absolutely amazing. His knowledge of history, archaeology, and culture was quite impressive, and he is a pleasure to learn from. We only wished we could have packed him up and taken him with us on the rest of our vacation! Paolo also helped navigate the train logistics (we were coming in from Rome) and gave us ideas of what to do in Naples. We can't wait to go back again one day and continue to learn about the other sites.

We were very pleased with our tour of Pompeii with Paolo. He is incredibly knowledgeable; there seemed to be no end to the facts and insights that he shared. The fact that he is a working archaeologist in the area made this tour all the more special. He tailored his tour for our kids (8 & 13), but also for the adults. We all came away with lots of info about Pompeii and its history & how this history fits into the greater context of ancient Italy. We would absolutely recommend him with highest scores.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Jo- Ann. Thank you very much for your wonderful feedback. It was a great pleasure for me to be your guide in Pompeii. Hoping to see you again for another tour. Kisses Paolo

We really benefited from Paolo's comprehensive tour, which was very professional but also full of little gems of facts and details we would not have known/seen otherwise. We highly recommend - a '5 star' tour. He could just be a little more attentive to detail; needed prompts to correct details on the booking forms. Also forgot we could only be contacted via the hotel (we do not have smart phones) and had tried emailing us the pm before our tour to ask to delay start time to take on another tour.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Nicole, thank your for your wonderful feedback. I am really glad to hear you had a great experience in Pompei and that you really enjoyed the tour with me. Hope to see you soon. Wish you a wonderful day. Paolo

This tour rocks, and Paolo rocks yet more. Seriously, this is by far better than the larger group tours. Paolo has personally unearthed some parts of Pompeii and his expertise and passion show in the little extra details and the depth of knowledge displayed. He delivers information and background in a way that rivets adults and kids alike. In short, take this tour, you will be glad you did.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Melissa!

Paolo is a working archeologist at Pompeii and is clever, funny and fun to be around. We loved our tour and can't imagine who could have painted a more vivid picture of the life and events at Pompeii in 79AD and the proceeding 8 thousand years. Thanks Paolo

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a lot John!

Paolo was fabulous. We were caught in Costal traffic and he graciously waited for us to arrive. His knowledge of Pompeii and Roman history was as complete as is possible - and served to bring Pompeii to life. His presentation manner/style was engaging and made for a wonderful informative and educating tour.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you!

Paolo is an archaeologist and an amazing tour guide, and we felt very fortunate to have the opportunity to tour Pompeii with him. He showed us the highlights of Pompeii and explained everything in an interesting, fun and informative way. Our family (including teenagers) all had a great time and we all learned so much about what we saw. Finally, Paolo was very personable and we throughly enjoyed our time with him. Thank you Paolo.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you!

Paolo was exactly whom you would wish for as a tour guide. Very kind, very experienced and professional, took his time to explain things.Being that he is an archeologist and excavator he could go down to details that a regular tour guide would never be able to do. He was so kind and accommodating with our 7 year old. For our next trip, we will definitely use Paolo again! THANKS!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you!
