Tour: #67771, Pompeii Herculaneum and Oplontis by train for Kathleen Ragan, Sorrento, Campania, Italy    
Date: Jul 15/17

Emiliano is wonderfully, seriously knowledgeable! He is an archaeologist and easily talks on the broad topics as well as details. He can read and translate the Latin inscriptions and graffeti. He answered the toughest questions from my daughters. I am grateful he suggested visiting Oplontis, a site I hadn't even known about. He is a very nice man. The tours went through without hiccup. I heartily and enthusiastically recommend Emiliano, even if you already know lots about Pompeii.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your warm words, really appreciated!

We were very grateful for Emiliano's guidance and highly appreciate his prompt responses before the tour date in clarifying various questions about ticket options and the focus of the tour. Of greatest value was his professional knowledge of the history and archeology of the three sites we visited. Being an archaeologist, his input went beyond the basic rehearsed information of a guide's script - it was very evident that he had a deep knowledge of fieldwork and technique. Excellent in all respects!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Mike!

Emiliano agreed to conduct our tour even though he had a stretch of tours and I am sure he was weary. Howewver, it did not show. He was entusiastic about the sites, the history, and "bringing to life" the imagery around what life would have been like in 79 AD. His detailed knowledge flowed easily and flawlessly. He also would tell us when he did not know something - rare for academic guides. We learned early to pay attention to this remarkable man and beneffited from it.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Mr Tabor.

Emiliano was very knowledgeable about the sites we visited with his archaeology background, his English was very good, and he was generous with his time so that we could see our fill of those remarkable places. He took us to a pretty-fast food joint for lunch (no meal in Italy is fast by American standards, to their credit) where we had excellent sandwiches and salads. We used the Circumvesuviana train to get to the Pompeii meeting place from our hotel in Sorrento and found it a comfortable experience.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello James, Thank you very much for your feedback!

Emiliano is a gifted historian and archeologist who can make the ancient Vesuvian sites come alive with his spirited explanations and stories. He is also an excellent source for information about modern-day Naples and its surrounds. If you want a good balance between advanced knowledge and the ability to effectively communicate at any level, Emiliano is your best bet when in Naples!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much..:-)

Emiliano's guidance around these three amazing sites and his expert knowledge of their unique features provided us with a depth of appreciation for their archaelogical riches that we would not have otherwise gained. He made the Vesuvian past come to life for us and adjusted his pace to ours most obligingly. We loved the quirky little glimpses he gave us into the brilliance of construction, the decorative features and the practicality of these ancient structures. A busy and great day exploring.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much..:-)

It was a very hot day in July with lots of walking but well worth the workout. Far better than any cruise excursion and we got the opportunity to navigate the train station in Naples and travel on our own to Pompeii where we met our guide. Lunch outside of the ruins in Pompeii was some of the best pizza we had. Bring an umbrella and plenty of water. Wear good shoes and be prepared to be amazed by the sites and the knowledge of the guide.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much..:-)
