Ilaria was wonderful! She was very knowledgeable about both Pompeii and Herculaneum. It is impossible to see Pompeii in 2 hours but Ilaria did a fantastic job showing us what she could. We did not feel rushed and it definitely wasn't boring! Herculaneum was just fantastic. It really showed you the difference in lifestyle and tragedy of the event. Ilaria was on time. Her English fantastic. Her knowledge of both areas was impressive. She was kind, fun, and all around perfect!

"Hillary" was a wonderful guide for our excursion along the Amalfi Coast and Pompeii. She delighted our family of six, including 2 teenage girls, with interesting historical stories for the entire time we were with her. We highly recommend her.

Ilaria is a licensed local guide who can give a relaxing tour of Capri or visit historical sights. She is a gem. Her English is perfect. We toured the island of Capri on a boat and then had a wonderful lunch at the top of Anacapri. Ilaria is aware of your time and is VERY flexible. Being with Ilaria made our day in Capri one we will never forget.

Ilaria M is the perfect tour guide for Pompeii. Very knowledgeable. My wife and I were here several years ago and used the self audio guide. We missed so much of the impact of the ruins but this time we were spot on with Ilaria. Rating is 5 stars only because that's as high as rating allowed. The price was reasonable and we left feeling we got our money's worth.

We were delighted with Ilaria and her skill in bringing Pompeii to life for us. It was quickly apparent she has a deep knowledge, enthusiasm and understanding of the city and it's past inhabitants. She took us through most of the major buildings and pointed out interesting detail. Ilaria dealt with our many questions with ease and gave us choices about what we wanted to see. As well as understanding the historical significance of the site we also left feeling the terrible impact of the disaster. Superb.

Ilaria is an excellent guide. We wanted to return to Pompeii after many years and also see Napoli so she provided a customized tour. We toured some of the newer excavations of Pompeii and they were very interesting. We also appreciated her comments and observations. Afterward, we toured Many of the key places in Napoli while we still had our driver with us. Then Ilaria walked to the castle with us and we stopped for coffee and pastries. A perfect day. Very organized.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Dennis, what a nice day I had with you! I really appreciate your enthusiasm and your interest for my city and Pompeii. Thank you very much for your kind words. Ciao!

This is a very good 1-day tour. If you were not a historian, you will need someone to show you Naples and especially Pompeii. Our guide Ilaria was knowledgeable and accommodating. The only regret was that we felt the time we spent in Pompeii was too short, partly due to an afternoon shower, but also the time management.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Stella, Thank you very much for your feedback! I'm glad you enjoyed the tour and definitely I agree that Pompeii needs more time but as requested in your messages I adapt the tour also to the 2 seniors in the group that would suffer to much the heat on 23rd of August. I hope to have the chance to show you much more of Pompeii next time you come back! My best regards Ilaria

The tour by Ilaria was excellent and we were sorry when it ended. She is very knowledgeable and put up with all our interruptions and answered our every one of our questions. Her English is great and easy to understand. Despite the heat, we couldn't believe how fast the time flew by. Since we could only see a small part of the large site, we plan go back in the future to see the rest. It was a worthwhile investment to have a guide and skip the long lines! We highly recommend this amazing tour of Pompei.
