We had a very interesting and pleasant tour with Roberto. He is very knowledgeable, loves Salerno and its past and is very good at showing its different aspects in such a way that you want to learn even more. The tour was a great way to start our 4 days in the Salerno region. Thank you, Roberto!

Date: Jan 31/20

Roberto was wonderful! So knowledgeable. We asked questions the entire tour, and it was a long one! He was patient and informative. Paestum is mind boggling. It may be our favorite part of the trip. Worth the train trip to get down there from Sorrento. Salerno was an unexpected pleasure! We explored the medieval portion of the city and beautiful Salerno Cathedral dedicated to Saint Mathew. I would give Roberto 6 stars if it were possible!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Dawn, It was my great pleasure to guide you and your friends! Happy you enjoyed Salerno, my hometown, and Paestum, a real gem of archaeological world heritage!

What a gem of a tour. Herculaneum turned out to be my favorite archeological site and Roberto was just the right person to guide us through.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Happy you enjoyed these two amazing archaeological sites (Herculaneum and Oplontis)! Less known than Pompeii but even more magical!

My husband and I booked Roberto for four different tours on the basis of his archeological background, command of the subject matter and ability to communicate his plans for us prior to booking. He was very quick to respond answering all of our questions thoroughly. Our tours were engaging and satisfying. The four tours included Naples, the Archeological Museum, Pompeii & Paestum. Roberto is a professional and charming guide who made our trip to Italy a wonderful experience.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much! It was my pleasure to guide you in some of the best sites of Campania Region!

Date: Oct 23/19

This tour was the highlight of our cruise. We rented a car and met Roberto in Paestum Italy to tour the ruins. Roberto was extremely knowledgeable as an archeologist in the area. His pacing of the tour and ability to answer any questions was impressive. We even got to see an live dig happening on the ruins site! I would highly recommend him and wished we had him with our trip in Rome. What a difference it makes knowing the history and context of the history of these areas. Thank you Roberto.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Jan, thank you! It is a pleasure for me to know you enjoyed the tour of Paestum and the chance we had to see real archaeologists working on this extraordinary archeological site full of charme!

Roberto was very knowledgable and was able to share information with our whole group, including kids. He arranged the tour so that we could see what we, wanted to see, rather than a standard tour. Logistics (inc a driver) were arranged perfectly.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Klara! Happy you and kids enjoyed the day discovering Herculaneum and the incredible artifacts of the National Archaeological Museum of Naples! Hope to see you soon for the visit of Paestum!

As first time visitors and having rented a local apartment, we wanted both an introduction to the city and also details of daily life. Roberto met us at our apartment, gave us a walking tour of the area, advice on local attractions, and answered all our questions. I always prefer a private guide, and Roberto was one of the best.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks you so much Alan! This tour is the best way to have an introduction of Sorrento and his surroundings! Perfect for a first time visitor!

Roberto is definitely the guide you would like to have when going to Pompeii and Ercolano! Not only he is knowledgeable about the history due to the fact that he is an archaeologist but he tries to make the tour interesting and fun! You won't regret having Roberto as your tour guide!

If was worth the tour because if it wasn't for Roberto we wouldn't have gone besides Capri, to Anacapri and get to know the town in depth. Not only he is a great tour guide but a very knowledgeable and nice person! Highly recommend!

Roberto was wonderfully knowledgeable about both Herculaneum and Pompeii. Due to my sister's knee issues he also was able to hire an excellent driver for us so that we could minimize her walking to/from the sites. We learned so much during our full day tour - much more than we would have learned trying to do it by ourselves. Roberto is very professional but also very personable. We thoroughly enjoyed our day with him as our guide.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Janice! I always try to offer the best experience based of the needs of my guests!

We had a great time learning about Pompeii from a real archaeologist. Roberto took us through the most important areas and then we travelled to Naples where we saw the artifacts from the site. Even had pizza for lunch. A unique way to learn about the site.

Roberto was wonderful! He made our trip to Pompeii so memorable. Since he is very familiar with the site, he was able to take us to less crowded areas which made it so special. We also visited Sorrento which was beautiful and now I know I want to go back to that area. Roberto has such a great wealth of knowledge and shared it with our family. If I ever go back to this region I will have him show me around more.

My family greatly enjoyed our day touring Pompeii & Herculaneum with Roberto. We saw the highlights of Pompeii and then spent the afternoon going more in depth at Herculaneum. Herculaneum is a lesser known gem and it is clear that Roberto enjoys touring this site. Roberto definitely knows and is able to convey a tremendous amount of information about both sites and could easily relate facts and stories to our 2 young daughters (ages 11 and 9).

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much! It was my pleasure guide your family at Pompeii and Herculaneum!

Roberto is outstanding - this is not a cheap tour but completely worth the money. His knowledge and the intimate nature of the tour is fantastic. We would only have seen 20% of the wonders of Pompei and Herculaneum on our own or with a large tour. If you can afford it I would strongly recommend you book Roberto for your tour.

Roberto was extremely knowledgeable about Pompeii and showed us all of the highlights which were the must see areas since we only had an hour due to the cruise ship departure schedule. Francisco drove us in a luxurious and comfortable Mercedes sedan and had water to keep us hydrated. He knew all of the ways to avoid traffic jams, filled us with information about the cities we passed and showed us the best places to dine and shop. Thank you ... we'll be back to spend more time.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a lot Charles! Happy you enjoyed our services! We are waiting for your next trip in Sorrento area for discovering more sites together!

Having experience of archaeological excavations I wanted to have a tour guide who was an Archaeologist. We took Roberto's tour of Herculaneum and were so impressed we hired him again for Pompeii. He is friendly, funny, and most importantly, knowledgable. I would thoroughly recommend him.
