Deborah YatesUnited States
Felicia was our private guide to Pompeii. She exceeded our expectations. As we began, she asked if we had any special interests. We did not, so she selected both the most historically significant and seldom seen sites. Her background as an historian and archeologic restorer made for an amazing experience. We both have difficulty walking. Felicia as very patient, and we never felt rushed. She even continued beyond our 3 hours so we missed nothing and we felt we made a friend in Italy.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Deborah for your amazing feedback ! I'm glad you liked our tour and I hope to see you again next time in the area Have great day , it was a huge pleasure to stay with you for some hours in Pompeii!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: thank you very much for your Arzu for your 5 star rating !
Felicia was a fantastic guide. Took our family's needs into consideration given we had a range of 4, 14 and 15 year old kids in tow.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Megan for your feedback! I hope to see you again
Alan ChalfinUnited States
We hit the jackpot with Felicia! Her knowledge of the two sites was more than coul have been expected....she even took us to areas of Herculaneum that she personally had worked on the restoration! Her command of English was near perfect and her willingness to accommodate our wishes was admirable. If my review seems to be a little over the top, it was intended to be! If you're going to Pompeii and Herculaneum be sure to request her!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank so much Alan, your feedback is super! You're so kind! it was great to show you the best of our wonderful archaeological sites. I hope to see you again next time in the area.
Raimie PierceAnna, TX, United States
We visited in October of 2019. Our guide Felicia was great. Her knowledge about the history of Pompeii was staggering. She really made the site come alive through her narration at the site while showing us many interesting things we would have missed without having a guide. Her services are highly recommended if you are planning a visit to Pompeii.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Than you very much Raimie ! it was a huge pleasure to be your guide . Looking forward to see you again for another tour
Douglas HughesUnited States

Bill HeplerDallas, TX, United States
We wanted a 3 hour tour of Pompeii with an archaeologist and we got more than that! Felicia was so informative and fun that we did not want the tour to end. In order to avoid the crowds I highly recommend her private tours.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Bill! Your feedback is amazing. It was a pleasure to meet you !

Michelle NadolskiUnited States
We were a group of 6, ages ranging from 82 to 5. Felicia was very accomodating to all our questions and levels of mobility. There is lots of walking on the tour, as expected, and crowds, as expected. She remained patient and pleasant. She is very intelligent, articulate and conversational. Her and her driver, Francesco, are native Pompeiians, an extra bonus to meet true locals. Francesco was also very knowledgable about Italian history, Pompeii, and Naples. Thank you, Felicia and Francesco!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Michelle , it was a huge pleasure!

Save time and get the most out of your visit to Pompeii, get hold of Felicia and ask her for a private tour. No standing in queues waiting to see the next thing on the tour. No waiting for a piece of information to be recited. Ask what you want, go where you want (all within reason). Felicia's description really brought to life what Pompeii might have been like at the time of the eruption. For us it was money well spent.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: A hughe thanksgiving to your wonderful party too for being so nice and such a wonderful guest! Hope to see you again!
Jon LawrenceUnited Kingdom
Felicia is friendly, knowledgeable and enthusiastic. We booked as a family of four with two grown up children. We all got a great deal out of it and were able to ask questions which specifically interested us as individuals. I think this is what separates a private tour from the group sessions. That and the ability to do what you want to do within reason. As an example, Felicia even managed to make time to help the kids look for football (soccer) shirts without getting ripped off.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Jon for your feedback! I would love to meet you again for another tour!
Fredric YoungUnited States
Felicia was amazing!! Perfect English...fantastic knowledge of Pompei...personable..just everything you would want in an afternoon of touring one of the world's greatest sites, Pompei. Thank you...worth every penny.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Frederic! It was a great pleasure to be your guide in Pompeii. I hope to see you again for another tour!
We were delayed for our tour due to rental car issues and couldn't make our tour the day we had booked. Felicia was incredibly understanding and although she couldn't accommodate us on another day, she and Tours by Locals set us up with an equally fantastic tour guide! We were so relieved to still do the tour and even though we can't rate Felicia for her knowledge (which I've no doubt is excellent) her compassion and assistance for our predicament did not go unnoticed. I highly recommend this company
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: thank you adele for your amazing feedback
Susan EmeryUnited States
This was my second visit to Pompeii and by far the better one! Felicia kept in touch with us ahead of the time to make sure we would find her easily. She is very knowledgeable and obviously has a love for Pompeii. She made the culture and life of the times come alive. As she pointed out this is an excellent window into life in Rome as well which made a good introduction when we later went to Rome. She has a good sense of humor and we enjoyed her company. We would highly recommend her.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: thank you very much Susan Hope to see you again!
Nooman HaqueUnited Kingdom
Felicia was an excellent guide for our family of four (children were 10 & 12). Clear English and an engaging style with a clear enthusiasm for the subject. Felicia was able to answer all sorts of relevant questions and most helpfully she managed to avoid many of the large tour groups so it seemed for much of our tour we had the place to ourselves
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your kind review!
John V.United States
Felicia was a wonderful guide with lots of knowledge about Pompeii. She focuses on the social aspect of the city that we found fascinating. She's was also very conversational and easy to talk to. Also we wanted a slightly shorter tour and she was able to accommodate us and we still feel that we got a good feel of Pompeii.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi John thanks a lot for your review.
Stephanie SnodgrassUnited States
Felicia was amazing! She did a wonderful job of describing the setting and what life was like at the time period. Felicia was very passionate about the history and shared fun and interesting facts. She picked an amazing place to eat lunch as well. We all highly recommend Felicia!!! She was so lovely, knowledgeable and respected what we were interested in seeing. Thank you!!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Stephanie!
Travis FairchildUnited States
Felicia was attentive, passionate and a fantastic educator for our time in Pompeii. She knows the history and how to make the most of your time. Great with kids!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a lot for your review!
Lew DevendorfUnited States
Our day with Felicia was amazing. She has degrees in Art History and Restoration, and worked on the restoration of Pompeii for many years. In the brief time we allowed her in Pompeii, she took us deep inside the city as it was, the way it has been restored, and why certain sections will not be restored now. It was an incredible journey. In Naples, we saw the Old City through the eyes of someone who has lived there all her life. As with Pompeii, her perspectives were wonderful. 10 stars!!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Lew for your feedback. I hope to see you again for another tour!
Michelle MerkleyUnited States
I highly recommend Felicia! She took our group of 8 on an amazing tour of Pompeii. She is an expert, in her own right on the ruins, and her love of Pompeii comes through in her tour. She has worked there so she knows just the areas to take you and what route to take to avoid the crowds. She will not disappoint!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Michelle for your feedback. I really appreciate it Hope to see you again!
Thank you, Felicia, for such an amazing day in Pompei! We really enjoyed learning about the rich history and your passion for the subject made the tour so "real." We all agreed that is was the experience of a lifetime and just would not have been the same without YOU! Thanks again!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Michele for your super nice feedback! It was a pleasure to meet you See you next time Felicia
Matthew ShatzUnited States
Felicia was a perfect guide in all respects. She was very easy to communicate with before the tour, and was very helpful in providing train traveling instructions in English by multiple emails. On the tour she was friendly and comfortable and extremely knowledgeable. She is a tour guide but also trained in restoration so she has expert knowledge to share. She was great with our two teenagers and afterwards kindly showed us her favorite pizza place in town and got us seated before leaving us.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Matthew Thank you very much for your super nice feedback. It was a great pleasure to be your guide in Pompeii and to meet you! I hope to see you again for another tour ! All the best Felicia
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

Ron BrownUnited States
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
