Sandy SingerUnited States
Felicia was an extremely knowledgeable tour guide who shared a great deal of expertise and made Pompeii come alive for me and my family. Well informed with a wealth of information at her fingertips due to her educational background as an art historian/preservationist. She managed to offer so many insights during our leisurely stroll around Pompeii, stopping at not only the "highlights" but also pointing out facts about the infrastructure and daily life of the ancient city. Highly fluent idiomatic English
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ciao Sandy Thank you so much for your great feeback. It was my pleasure to be your guide inside Pompeii ruins. I hope to see you soon again back for another tour. Best wishes Felicia

Pompeii is a definite with a guide. Felecia had a ton of knowledge to share with us. We were a little lost with the driver in the first couple hours. He didn't say much to us and Felecia didn't join us until Pompeii. Even with that lack of communication, Felecia made the experience great.
James StephensUnited Kingdom
Outstanding guide. Our tour of Pompeii was brilliantly delivered by Felicia, whose knowledge was second to none. Pompeii was "brought to life", it was the highlight of our Western Mediterranean cruise.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello James Thank you very much for your beautiful review! I'm glad you liked your excursion Best regards Felicia
Caroline DouglasUnited Kingdom
Felicia was an excellent and delightful guide. She took us to all of the important places on the site and gave us detailed information about it. She has a wide range of knowledge as she used to carry out restoration there and she was born in Pompeii. She spent extra time with us to visit the Villa dei Misteri which was wonderful and very kind of her. We would thoroughly recommend a trip with her.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Caroline Thank you so much for your beautiful feedback! It was a great pleasure to be your guide in Pompeii Best regards Felicia

Mark Van RasselCanada
Our family of four, including a hard to please 17 year old son all agreed that the tour was fantastic. Felicia was very friendly and informative and it is very obvious that she is passionate about Pompeii. It is well worth the money to book the private tour with Felicia. With all of the great insight that Felicia provides, I cannot imagine getting anywhere near the same experience doing the tour on your own or with a larger group.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Mark! I'm glad you liked your tour. Thank you for your wonderfull feedback! Best regards Felicia

Mike WoolfUnited States
A perfect tour. Felicia has spent her entire career studying Pompeii and the surrounding region yet she made us feel like she was uncovering the ruins for the first time. She crafted a tour that was insightful, interesting and endlessly illuminating. The best part was she brought to life the Romans and the life they were living 2000 years ago. Thank you Felicia, it was a wonderful experience.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Mark! I greatly appreciated your interest. It is always a pleasure to work with people like you. Best Regards
Ronni ParadisoUnited States
Felicia was extemely knowledgeable and entertaining as well. It was extremely hot on the day we visited Pompeii and she went as fast and/or as slow as was needed for our group. She spoke perfect English. Felicia answered all our questions and met us on time and in the exact location we discussed. I would use her again and recommend her highly.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Ronni Thank you so much for your beautiful words. I appreciate your review. I hope to see you again for another tour Best regards Felicia

Leigh CorbettSouth Africa
Our family enjoyed the best day in Pompeii with Felicia. Her tour was interesting and informative. Her knowledge of and passion for Pompeii was obvious. She related equally to the adults and children in our family group of 9 pax. She kept the youngsters interested with anecdotes and images. After our morning in Pompeii we visited the beautiful hilltop town of Ravello. Felicia made a reservation for us at a fabulous authentic family owned Italian restaurant. The transport she arranged was top class!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your review. I am happy to have met your expectations. Kind Regards!
Mary NeesUnited States
We had a very personable driver, Angelo, who met us at ship, helped find lunch and took us up to Vesuvius and back on time, even played us music. He coordinated with Felicia, an antiquities expert who took us though Herculaneum in the morning. She was fabulous for her knowledge, ability to speak to and beyond the interests of our grandkids with passion and with great visuals. Roberto at the top of the crater was wonderful also. This was our favorite day, packed with learning and experiences for a lifetime
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Mary. I will also remember the time spent with you talking about history and strong feelings that can give us. I hope to see you again. Kind Regards
With Felicia as our wonderful guide, Pompeii 'came alive' for my family - we all loved our tour with Felicia as we learnt so much. Felicia is friendly, insightful and extremely knowledgeable on all things associated with Pompeii. She was the perfect guide for our family with children aged between 10 and 16. Thank you Felicia for a magical morning.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Alison! Thank you so much for you beautiful words! I'm honored. Hope to see you all your wonderfull family again in Pompeii or for other tours!! Best regards Felicia

Betsy WoodallUnited States
Driver for Positano was amazing! Do not expect to navigate these streets without a professional. Lots of time for shopping in Sorrento, & amazing connections w/ locals - absolutely THE BEST Italian food connections. Stopped at Limoncello factory. Once at Pompeii, Felicia guided us through the city streets, being sure to point out the directional signs for sailors to identify the local brothel, getting a lively chuckle from our teenage kids. She had us sing on center stage. Her passion is real - awesome!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much
John BerryUnited States
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: thank you for your positive valuation! Felicia
Lisa DonleyUnited States
Felicia was amazing! Her knowledge and love for Pompeii and Herculaneum was contagious. Our group learned so much on the tour. There was not one question we asked that she could not answer. We all had to go back that evening and read more about the two towns and the great tragedy that occurred on that day. If you are in this area, please go see both cities and request her.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Lisa! Thank you very much for your wonderful feedback! I hope to see you again in Pompeii for a tour! Best regards Felicia
Thomas H.United States
One of the best TBL trips we have taken. Felicia provided the expected wealth of facts and information , but added a personal perspective from her background as an art restorer and native of Pompei. The trip was described correctly in her write-up plus she wove in the local pride that comes from viewing the sites her entire life. Felecia was very personable and has excellent English. Highly recommended.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your kind words! It was a beautiful day for me too. I hope to meet you again. Best Regards, Felicia
Bianca BoskerUnited States
Felicia was a fabulous tour guide who made Pompeii come alive. The breadth and depth of her knowledge was formidable, insightful, and impressed us all. (One member of our group had already been to Pompeii four times, and STILL learned so many new things from her.) I can't wait to return to the area to explore new sites with Felicia.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Bianca! The tour with your party was pleasant for me too, thanks to your interest. I will be very happy to be your guide when you decide to come back to my area.
Alessandra SeranoUnited States
Excellent tour! Felicia was great! I learned a lot!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much, Alessandra! Best Regards
Felicia was an excellent host to Pompeii for our group of 4, including 2 kids aged 10 and 13. Aside from a vast knowledge and passion for the history of Pompeii, Felicia shared all kinds of interesting insights as to how the people of Pompeii lived based on the different observations made around the site. Our visit to Pompeii would not have been as interesting without this tour - I can highly recommend.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much, Lisa!

David HampshireUnited Kingdom
We were 2 adults and 5 teenagers, come down to Naples from Rome for a day to see Pompeii and Herculaneum. We were met by Francesco who was an excellent chauffeur for the day. Felicia was our guide round Pompeii and Herculaneum. The children voted her 10 out of 10. She is a brilliant guide. She is passionate about her subject, insightful, and she brings to life the city of 2000 years ago. She communicates with clarity and keeps her audience spellbound. I have no hesitation in highly recommending her.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much! I spent a beautiful day with you. I love my job even for experiences like this. What a beautiful family! Many greetings to all!

Felicia provided an excellent tour for our group of 8 teenagers and 5 adults.

The tour of Pompeii with Felicia was a highlight of our entire trip to Italy. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much, I have a nice memory of you all!
Ross YuenHong Kong
Felicia is very knowledgeable in the history of Pompeii and the architecture of the Romans. My son finds that it is like traveling through time machine with her. She can really get you to understand complicated ideas. More importantly, she is able to bargain for good prices in buying souvenir.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Ross. Thank you very much for your feedback. It was a really pleasure to show you the best of Pompeii. I'm glad you got my passion in archaeology. Best regards Felicia
Amy FeindUnited States
Felicia is amazing- passionate, knowledgable and a great storyteller. She makes history come alive and is so engaged in what life was like in Pompeii and Herculaneum that she really brings it alive. We could have stayed there for so much longer, she did a great job giving us a good overview of many different aspects of the cities and of life there: commerce, household life, art, architecture, performing arts, leisure, sport....everything! It was an amazing few hours and we left wanting to know more.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Amy, it has been a great pleasure to be your guide. I'm glad you appreciate my passion (that's the reason why I do this job) and thank you very much for your beautiful feedback. I hope to see you soon again here in Pompeii. Best regards Felicia

Brian TomanUnited States
We hired Felicia for a private walking tour of Pompeii and wished we had hired her for another day. Felicia is very knowledgeable as she is an art historian and restorer. She is an excellent guide. Not only did she show us the amazing mosaics, she also showed us the graffiti and told us what was written. At the end of our tour, we asked for a restaurant recommendation. She provide us with a recommendation for a local restaurant. I highly recommend Felicia and this to tour. You won't be disappointed
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Brian!

Donna OzkorUnited Kingdom
Felicia was fantastic! We asked to postpone our tour by two hours due to poor weather and Felicia was so accommodating. We had 4 children and two infants in our party of 10 and Felicia kept all of us all thoroughly captivated throughout the tour of both sites. She knew just what level of detail to go into for the children and what to see, with such a huge site we would have struggled without her. We highly recommend her.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your nice words!
Robert HillUnited Kingdom
What a wonderful two hours we spent with Felicia at Herculaneum. We really felt like we got to know the town and something of what it was like to live there two thousand years ago. Felicia has a fantastic knowledge of the area and it's history and speaks such good English that we had no problem talking in detail about the many cultures and civilisations that shaped the area. Well worth every penny.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Great comment, thank you,
Christine OsbornUnited States
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks!
June N.United Kingdom
We were very impressed with Felicia's gentle but informative style. It was fascinating to discuss not just the history and culture of the times, but also the archaeology and restoration techniques with her. She had pictures showing the current sites with overlays of how they used to look, which helped bring the sites to life. We loved her parting gift of the special tea and the little text book. This tour is best taken after Pompeii, building up through the quality of the sites.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you June!
Liz C.United States
Felicia is very knowledgeable and clearly enjoys her subject and also helped with logistics. I couldn't recommend her more.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Anne!!
Jack RainsUnited States
We were met promptly at 9:00 at the entry gate to Pompeii (took the train) where she assisted in bypassing the long ticket line, an added benefit of using a guide. As a working archeologist, she was, of course, extremely knowledgeable, cared deeply for the sites and patiently answered all of our questions about the ruins and even about her life growing up in Pompeii. By the time our tour ended, it was like we were being accompanied by a good friend instead of someone we had just met. We highly recommend.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Jack!!
Charlie OldaniUnited States
Felicia was an outstanding tour guide through Pompeii. she showed us many interesting sites among the ruins and her knowledge of the city was second to none. would recommend her and would use her again if we return
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a lot.
Felicia was amazing! I've done a Pompeii tour previously and it didn't compare. Felicia was very passionate, enthusiastic and her knowledge on the subject is second to none. Her English is spot on and she gave commentary right throughout. Her expertise made all the difference to our experience. This is definitely a highlight of our travels. Thank you! Sylvie and John
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your great comment.
Irene FaynUnited States
We booked our tour of Pompeii super late and Felicia did not disappoint. She is a true scholar of Pompeii and had a lot of supporting materials to ensure that our two children ages 13 and 10 have an unforgettable experience. This was a second trip to Pompeii for my husband and me, and Felicia definitely made it the best one. If you are looking for a knowledgeable guide who has strong presentation and English language skills then look no further and book with Felicia.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you! Felicia
This tour was excellent and Felicia did a great job in explaining the whole history of Pompeii from the original explosion to the excavations and conservation efforts of today, pointing out many things on our walk that would have gone completely unnoticed without her expertise. We learnt a great deal in the two hour tour and can thoroughly recommend the tour and Felicia as a guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for the review! I appreciate it.
Niall HaighUnited Kingdom
Felicia is well informed and great at telling the story of Naples and the great art, archtecture and archaeology that is here. Highly recommended.

My wife, daughter, and I wanted a private tour of Pompeii with someone who was actually a practicing researcher there. We could not be more delighted with Felicia's expert guidance. We would be delighted to take a tour with her in the future and recommend her highly.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for the review! I appreciate it.
Joseph ButlerUnited States
Felicia was a great guide, very knowledgeable and gave interesting insights at every corner. her experience working at the site as a architectural restorer gave some very personal views over time that one would not get by going on a tour with 40 other hot and sweaty tourists :). Well worth it!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Joseph!
Michael P.United States
Felicia gave us a wonderful tour of Pompeii including details about Roman life, culture, art and of course the dwellings. It was just the right amount of time to take in a very expansive place. Grazie Felicia.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Micheal!
Barry OSullivanUnited States
Felicia is an excellent guide. Her in-depth knowledge of the region, the history, the culture, the city and the disaster that befell Pompeii enable her to tell a fascinating story as she guides you from one exceptional site to another. She is a friendly, professional expert - and we noticed a lot of tourists eavesdropping whenever we were stopped at a site. We were never rushed, and we left with a real feeling of what life was like here. And a deeper appreciation for the scale of the disaster.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much!
Andy ForseyUnited Kingdom
Whilst you may think that the cost is expensive, think again, what you get from Felicia is an exceptional two hours of potted history. Felicia is not only a talented tour guide with an in depth knowledge of Pompeii, she is also a conservator, and restorer of paintings and ceramics, when not guiding people around Pompeii. She even managed to get my teenage son to ask questions! A delightful day out! Felicia comes highly recommended. Andy Brighton England
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Andy, Sorry for the delay in responding. Thank you very much for your review. I remember with pleasure the time spent with you and your son in Pompeii. I love my job also because I have the opportunity to know people like you. Best wish, Felicia
Raymond SnowIsland Heights, NEW JERSEY, United States
Wow! What a wonderful tour! My wife and I have wanted so see Herculaneum and Pompeii all our lives. Our problem was that we only had one day in the Naples area. This tour was the answer to our problem. Felicia is an excellent guide of the highest caliber. She is a trained conservator, who actually works with the artifacts from these areas. As an insider, she knows when and where to be at any time of the day to avoid crowds. This helps bring the history to life. It was magic Felicia, many thanks!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a lot Raymond,
Robert ConstanceUnited States
We had a family tour with Felicia. She was great with our 2 children, she kept them interested at all times and they loved exploring and getting to know some history of Pompeii thanks to Felicia. It was interesting for adults too, she knows how to keep all the group interested at all times! 2 hours flew by and we wished we had booked for longer! Thank you Felicia, highly recommended!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Robert, Thank you very much for your feedback. I wish you all the best.
