This tour by Fabrizio was without a doubt the best tour in all Italy--he knew his material and just as important he knew how to impart it to someone else. He was entertaining and cared for each member on our family. He also did not stop with just passing on historical facts etc. but looked after us having a great meal near the site. He took time to answer any questions and made sure that our every need was addressed. A real guide----Garry
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Garry Thank you and please give a warm hello on my behalf to everyone of your beautiful family. Ciao! fabrizio
Robin MarionUnited States
Fabrizio was pleasant and knowledgeable. I thoroughly enjoyed my tour of Herculaneum.
Andrea GranatoUnited States
Fabrizio was wonderful. We were traveling with my parents who are in their 70's and my children who are in their 20's and Fabrizio kept everyone's interest. We all felt as if we were taken back to day in the life of a Herculaneum's citizen. Fabrizio made history come to life for us-from telling us about how they lived to even how a public toilet worked. Very entertaining. We even finished the day off with pizza!
Megan MillerUnited States
Our tour of Pompeii & Herculaneum with Fabrizio was the highlight of our trip! Fabrizio was incredibly knowledgeable and catered to our different interests to ensure everyone had an enjoyable time. He knew how to navigate around the crowds and the site so that we were able to maximize our time and see the most interesting things. Fabrizio was also invaluable with his other recommendations for the remainder of our trip. We loved our day with Fabrizio and cannot recommend him more highly!
I can only say wonderful things about Fabrizio! We chose his tours of Naples/Pompeii/Herculaneum because of his Pompeii4Kids theme and it was such a great choice. He has worked hard to produce games, quizzes and activities for kids which really bring Pompeii and Herculaneum alive. He was able to engage the older teen and the adults as well, with well-chosen lunch spots, fascinating information, and charm. I highly recommend him and his tours. We loved Naples and were sad to leave. Thanks Fabrizio!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Jane! see you in Australia next time!! with frienship, fabrizio
Jackie BrownUnited Kingdom
We enjoyed a fabulous few hours with Fabrizio. Our children aged 12 and 10 were totally engaged throughout, as were we. Fabrizio was a terrific guide who shared his wealth of knowledge enthusiastically. A perfect family tour! Thank you.
Joy MeadUnited States
Fabrizio was prompt and well prepared. He mapped out our day allowing us just the right amount of time to see Amalfi and Ravello before heading to Pompeii. He was extremely well versed in the local community and the history of the sites we visited. He gave us enough time to enjoy a stroll through the two cities and a yummy lunch at a local restaurant. He sensed the desired pace of our group and catered our visit to Pompeii to our interests. I HIGHLY recommend him!
Larry WorlundUnited States
Tour of Pompeii & Oplontis. Wow! Where do I start? This was hands-down the very best tour we've ever taken, and my wife and I have been to Italy 6 times. Fabrizio was like the best friend you haven't seen in a few years. He immediately connected with all 6 people on the tour. He was very knowledgeable, courteous, and went out of his way to make sure we had fun. PS - Fabrizio took us to a lunch at Cantina del Vesuvio. LOL...it was the best food we ate in Italy. Thanks Fabrizio. It was great!
Nancy S.United States
Thank you to Tours by Locals for our wonderful day at Pompeii with Fabrizio. We were a group of six who had an educational, fun tour of all the highlights at Pompeii. It would have been impossible to tour this place on our own. It is huge. Fabrizio is extremely knowledgeable and engaging. I would recommend asking for him and give him 5 STARS! Thank you, Nancy S
Elizabeth DawsonUnited States
We had an amazing day with Fabrizio! He took us to Pompeii from Naples train station, and was extremely knowledgable about the history and area of the Pompeii ruins. It was very educational and he wanted to make sure that we were enjoying the day and on time to our schedule. After leaving Pompeii he drove us down to the Amalfi Coast for a fabulous lunch by the harbor. We can't thank Fabrizio enough for a day we will always remember, he is very professional, friendly, prompt and we highly recommend him
Kathryn ScarangellaUnited States
Fabrizio took us on the perfect tour - just the right amount of detail presented in a very pleasant way. One could spend days in Pompeii but he managed the tour so we were exposed to the major features in the time we had available. He is clearly very knowledgeable and his English is excellent. He made the most of the time we had. He arranged transportation for us from Rome with a friendly, professional driver, Carlo. Do not visit Pompeii without Fabrizio.
Gail GiffinUnited States
Three friends and I participated in a ToursByLocals last September. This day was the highlight of our trip through Italy. Fabrizio was extremely knowledgeable about the city's history and explained all questions that we asked. One of us had some physical limitations. He went out of his way to find a less challenging walk to get from place to place. Fabrizio's sense of humor and knowledge made the day fun. History came alive for us.I would highly recommend this tour with ToursByLocals.
Susan W.United States
Fabrizio was a FANTASTIC guide--pleasant, knowledgeable, and patient. We chose the 'Pompeii for Kids' tour and my granddaughter loved it. Fabrizio kept her engaged but was able to provide the in-depth information that we adults wanted. We were so glad we opted to have a guided tour.
Mark VisokayUnited States
We booked a half day tour when we found our cruise line would not support a morning Naples tour and an afternoon Pompeii tour. Wow, are we ever glad it worked out that way. Fabrizio was both extremely enthusiastic and knowledgeable. Our kids both commented that he was the best tour guide we'd had throughout the length of the cruise.
Teresa PerrettaUnited States
We visited Pompei in July. We were a large family group of 10 people, of which 4 were children aged 3-8. Fabrizio was our tour guide and he was nothing short of amazing! It was a terribly hot day and we were dealing with intermittently hot and cranky children, but none of that mattered. Fabrizio was able to keep everyone - children and adults alike - engaged and entertained. He was knowledgeable, friendly, informative and very patient! We all had a phenomenal experience and really loved Fabrizio!!!!!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ciao Teresa, come stai?! è stato un piacere conoscere te e la tua famiglia, quanto tornate fatevi vivi anche per un caffé! tante buone cose, Fabrizio
Nick SoterUnited States
Best tour ever! Mostly due to Fabrizio's knowledge of Pompeii and his ability to make it come alive through his engagement, but especially because of how he involved the kids through the use of games and activities. We learned so much more through Fabrizio, more than we ever would have by just wallking around the site on our own. He was friendly, knowledgeable, and really seemed to care that we were having fun, in a meaningful way. Highly recommend!!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Nick! please say hello to all your beautyful family on my behalf. Fabrizio
Debora RussellUnited States
Thank you Fabrizio from the Russell Family, your service was excellent and you made our family vacation so enjoyable, always on time and very informative on all tours Would highly recommend you It was a trip of a lifetime Debbie Russell
Robert KrebsUnited States
Fabrizio was wonderful. We will recommend him to all of our friends traveling to Naples and the Sorrento-Amalfi coast. He is everything we hoped for in a professional tour guide. His knowledge, personal touch, sense of humor and kindness were all first class. Thank you for an amazing day.
Tracy KennedyUnited States
Fabrizio is a gem! He is passionate and professional about his job. Also patient (answered all our questions, and made us laugh!) Having him as our guide to Pompeii & Amalfi was the highlight of our trip. We will never forget the fantastic day and all that we learned from him! Grazie molto por tutto, Fabrizio. Sincerely, Brain, Tracy, Bridget, Travis, & Nona Cyndy :)
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Tracy and family, it was my pleasure to spend the day with you all. I wish you all the best!! fabrizio
William S.United States
Fabrizio was knowledgable and professional. He tailored the tour to the needs of both my young son and my 67 year old mother. His knowledge of Art History and the culture of the people of Herculaneum allowed my family and I to see things that would have been invisible if we have visited on our own. Being collected and delivered was an absolute bonus too. The whole experience was so wonderful I am planning our next trip already and will (of course) be using Fabrizio again.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Nicole, I appreciate your words. I hope the pizza lunch was just as good! rgds, fabrizio
Kimberly MurdockUnited States
Fabrizio is a true gentleman! He was the best guide to take our family of 5 on a full day around the Amalfi Coast. He knew all the best local spots to stop and eat/snack/take pics. He drove us around in a clean, large Mercedes van equipped with speakers so we could all hear. He is informative and entertaining and even helped us with our next day in Capri. We will definitely use Fabrizio again when we come back.
Jim GillespieUnited States
Fabrizio was a fantastic guide for our group of 6 people. We had a great visit to Positano and Sorrento with a great place for lunch. Then our visit to Pompeii. His knowledge and familiarity with the site made for a great tour. I would highly recommend Fabrizio to anyone visiting the Naples area. Jim Gillespie
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Jim, it was a pleasure for me to spend the day with all of you! Hopefully we will see you again, fabrizio
Gary KeeganUnited Kingdom
Excellent and informative tour. Fabrizio was waiting for us at our hotel as arranged. He was brilliant with the kids and kept them and mum and dad enthralled throughout our journey around Pompei. Would highly recommend Tours by locals and Fabizio if taking children around the attraction.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Gary, it was my pleasure, thanks a lot for your words, see you again hopefully! fabrizio
Fabrizio took us on a wonderful tour - tailor made to our needs - picking us up in Naples, taking us to Herculaneum, Villa at Oplontis, Museo Boscoreale and Pompeii, in one busy nine hour day before dropping us in Sorrento. He is a great guide - well-informed, articulate (excellent English) and with a great sense of humour. We travelled in a very comfortable air conditioned minivan, and ate a delightful lunch just opposite the entrance to Pompeii. A very full fabulous day - I can recommend him highly.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Janet! I hope you are all having a great time in Sorrento. see you again, fabrizio
Debra KingUnited States
Fabrizio was a great guide in the Pompeii ruins, very well educated in the history, answered all of our questions, made suggestions for other tours, which we will look into. Great experience and will recommend.
A great half-day tour through Naples with Fabrizio, who is extremely cultivated. His perfect French was also remarkable. I do recommend this tour for those who want a first impression of Naples and do not really know where to go and what to see.
Ellen PerlUnited States
Outstanding tour by very knowledgeable guide. His international educational experience makes his tour extremely informative and enjoyable. Fabrizio taught us much about Pompeii. I highly recommend him as a guide.
David CohenUnited States
Fabrizio was a terrific guide! He was friendly, knowledgeable and his English was impeccable. I had been to Pompeii three times before, but he was still able to show us new things, and put them into context. He made an excellent suggestion for us to visit Ravello, a place we will probably want to visit again. He also made lunch reservations for us there. Lastly, I cannot say enough about Carlo, our driver. He was professional and friendly and ALWAYS looked to make our trip more enjoyable. BRAVO!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear David, it was our pleasure! Thank you!! May our paths cross again, Fabrizio
To have Fabrizio as a guide is a pleasure on its own. He has such a pleasant and outgoing character paired with outstanding knowledge that the tour was a pleasure for us. We can only highly recommend him to anybody without any limitation
Avec Fabrizio, nous avons découvert et fait découvrir à nos deux filles de dix ans le fabuleux site de Pompéi. Fabrizio s'est montré particulièrement serviable, agréable et attentif. Grâce à sa connaissance du site, sa maîtrise du français, son abord naturel et son commentaire adapté, nous avons été tous les quatre captivés durant toute la visite. Un souvenir que nous ne sommes pas prêts d'oublier! A recommander...
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Merci Olivier!
Cyndi FoxUnited States
My family and I booked the Custom Tour that included a transfer from the train station and tour of Pompei. Our tour guide, Fabrizio, was wonderful! He is a knowledgeable guide. He also kept our kids engaged with kid friendly tour activities along the way. We highly recommend!
Cheryl HarrisoUnited States
Fabrizio was a fabulous guide for us in Naples, Pompei. He is a kind guide with a wealth of knowledge of the history of Greece, Roman and the Middle Ages. He answered many questions about all the cultures related to this area. He was kind enough to take us to great gelatorias and restaurants. He happens to be a great driver. You will not go wrong when you pick Fabrizio as your guide!
David DeckerUnited States
Superior guide, able to handle a large group, will use again!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear David, it was real nice to meeting you all. PLease say hello to everyone, see you again! fab
We arranged a customised transfer from Amalfi Coast to Rome with Fabrizio - he could not have been more helpful. We were a party of eight with luggage - I have never felt safer being driven by his driver Fabio, even on the hairpin turns and traffic of the Amalfi. Fabio made the whole journey interesting! Fabrizio met us in Pompeii- his tour was fantastic- so engaging. Even in freezing temps, we didn't want him to stop. Thanks Fabio and Fabrizio- you were both fantastic!
David TysonBolton, LANCASHIRE, United Kingdom
Had a great morning with Fabrizio. His English is excellent and his knowledge of Naples is first class. A real joy to spend a morning in his company and the icing on the cake was his recommendation of a pizzeria for lunch where we both enjoyed the finest pizza we had ever had and the prices were ludicrously cheap !
Dear Fabrizio, This is the opportunity to express to you our appreciation and thanks for the wonderfull day that we have spent with you. Our private tour to Sorento - Amalfi Coast , guided by you, was the highlight of our current cruise. Me and my wife , we have enjoyed your personality, knowledge and your professional approach to make our tour unforgettable. THANK YOU! Zmira and David
John BerrymanUnited States
Fabrizio is a terrific guide. He is extremely knowledgeable and extremely likable. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our tour, which Fabrizio customized to our schedule and interests. We would recommend him to anyone seeking a private tour guide. Fabrizio is as good as it gets!
Robert EkedahlBoise, ID, United States
Just when we thought we've had the best ToursByLocals guide ever, Fabrizio raised the bar! He is terrific. Totally knowledgable, friendly, organized, accommodating, and flexible. And to top it off his mini-van had a sound system so guests in the very back could hear him. We'd never seen that before. Don't miss a chance to use him if you can.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Bob It was really nice to meet you all. Please say hello to your wife and friends on my behalf. See you again! Fabrizio
Barbara WilliamsUnited States
Our tour guide was top rate. He was very informative, personable and helpful in all respects. We would highly recommend him.
What an amazing character is Fabrizio. Energetic, passionate, informative, knowledgeable and fun :) Exceptional tours through Pompeii and Herculaneum gave us the behind the scenes information that would be lost on the average visitor. Fast and efficient service, prompt and attentive. We could not recommend Fabrizio any more highly. Thank you for an amazing tour that will stay with us for a very long time.
Thank you Fabrizio for an excellent customised tour walking through Naples. Fabrizio asked what we were interested in then proceeded to take us on an lightly paced walk to meet our families capabilities, showing us an amazing blend of historic, cultural and retail that we requested. With wonderful humour and in perfect English we were left with an especially memorable walk through Naples. Thank you Fabrizio
Barry StrubeUnited States
Nancy KramerUnited States
This tour was beyond our expectation. Both Fabrizio and our driver Carlo were professional, knowledgeable and personable. Fabrizio took us to areas away from the crowds and gave us an understanding of the amazing history of Pompeii. He then recommend an itinerary for our time along the Almafi coast which included lunch at wonderful restaurant overlooking the coast. Our driver Carlo then showed us sites as we made our way through the towns along the Almafi coast. Thank you Fabrizio & Carlo!!!
The trip to Pompeii was well-received. My family spoke very highly of Fabrizio.
Sandra TremarcheUnited States
Fabrizio was fantastic to work with! He was such a great guy. He knew his stuff. Our driver Carlo was also awesome. Such a gentlemen. We definitely would use their services again if we ever get the chance to visit Italy again.
Roger ApplegateFairfax Station, VA, United States
Fabrizio was excellent. He was very knowledgeable, considerate of our needs and he had a great itinerary set up for the time we had available. We would highly recommend him and his services.
Julie CaplanUnited Kingdom
This tour was exactly what we hoped for. The whole operation ran smoothly. The guide was amazing, very knowledgable, entertaining and kept the kids totally focused. Well worth the money
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Julie!
Clare McDiarmidUnited Kingdom
Fabrizio was fun, engaging, patient and extremely knowledgeable. He delivered a tour of Pompei that managed to keep an 8 and 9 year old (plus 2 adults) enthralled for all 2.5 hours on a very hot day. Cannot recommend this tour enough if you have children. Worth every penny
Diane MullenUnited States
What a fabulous and special day!!! I travelled to Italy with 10 other family members for over 10 days. The day we spent with Fabrizio was by far the best of them all. 6 of us took a custom tour with him to see Montella,Amalfi Coast,and Pompeii. Our family name is Montella,and Fabrizio took us to the city office there and translated our request to view the records for my husband's grandmother,grandfather and 2 uncles. Fabrizio was an awesome guide;so knowledgeable and personable. Loved him and the tour <3
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Diane Thank you It was a lot of fun! Please day hello to the rest of the family Ciao! Fabrizio
Jennifer StanfieldUnited States
I cannot say enough good things about Fabrizio. He had a spring in his step throughout a long day of travel. He shared with us his extensive knowledge of music, history, archaeology, local vegetation, and Italian life and culture. He adjusted the schedule to allow for weather changes on Mt. Vesuvius, optimizing our view from the top. He is also a patient man who allowed us to choose the pace of our day. Every person in my family enjoyed getting to know him. Thank you, Fabrizio!
Leslie EdelmanUnited States
Fabrizio was amazing.. truly delightful, knowledgable and a joy to be with! He listened to our wants and gave us exactly the type of touring we desired. I can't wait to return to Italy just to have Fabrizio guide me around again...!!!
Peter C.United States
Fabrizio provided us an excellent overview of Pompeii, hitting many of the important sites within the ancient city. His expert commentary made what we were seeing come alive. His knowledge of the history, art and everyday life of Pompeii made the tour more interesting. Fabrizio knew how to strategically bypass crowded areas on a hot day and backtrack so as not to miss sites that we hadn't seen. He made the best use of our time. An excellent tour guide.
Catherine Zurncapistrano beach, CA, United States
Terrific tour for the children to help them enjoy and understand Pompeii. The games played during the tour helped keep them interested. It was fun for adults too and several commented on how much they learned. Fabrizio is outstanding in the way he shares his knowledge plus very patient with the young ones. If you have children ages 6-11 with you this is the tour to take. This was my 6th Pompeii tour and I still saw and learned new information.
Jay CohenTiburon, CALIFORNIA, United States
Fabrizio was extremely knowledgeable and had a great attitude. His van was very clean and it was clear he values and enjoys his work. I would definitely recommend his services.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a lot Mr Cohen! see you again! fabrizio
Mary BarretoUnited States
We were very pleased with the tour. Fabrizio is an excellent guide. My entire family loved the tour and the sights we visited. We fully recommend this tour. Excellent!!
Mitch PomeranceUnited States
Fabrizio was an amazing tour guide for us in Naples. He took us to Positano, Sorrento and Pompeii in one day. We learned so much about the area and everyone enjoyed themselves. We highly recommend Fabrizio for anyone visiting Naples!!
Joseph PychUnited States
Without Fabrizio, we would not have fully appreciated the city of Naples. In his walking tour we visited churches, markets, and a museum. This gave us both a sense of Naples rich history and modern daily life. Highly recommended!
Ameeta KumarUnited States
Joseph PychUnited States
Fabrizio customized a private tour of Pompeii to match the interests of my wife, our teenage boys, and me. Fabrizio led us to highlights of Pompeii and explained each site's history and significance. His enthusiastic explanations kept the boys fully engaged for the entire tour. His knowledge of Pompeii is encyclopedic and skillfully answered every question. He's an amazing tour guide. Highly recommended!
Joseph PychUnited States
This is a great tour for anyone who likes hiking and the outdoors, particularly for families with teenagers like ours. It was a highlight of our trip to Italy. Besides experiencing the natural beauty, this was an outdoor classroom. Fabrizio's knowledge of the path is encyclopedic: the plant life, the history, the mythology and more. I highly recommend this tour specifically and Fabrizio for any tour. He's a fantastic tour guide.
The tour of Pompeii was designed wth our needs and time frame in mind. Fabrizio was able to give us an insight into life in Pompeii though well selected building visits. He also explained very well what happened in the eruption of Vesuvius. What shone through was Fabrizio's knowledge and passion for the subject of Pompeii. He is very articulate and is able to impart his knowledge to adults and children with charm and verve, but also with sensitivity and discretion. Fabulous!
Amy BanisterUnited States
Our tour guide, Fabrizio, was wonderful and extremely knowledgeable. Fabrizio packed a lot into our 2.5 hour tour of Pompeii including recently opened buildings and one not open to the general public during our tour. Since Pompeii is so vast, you will be overwhelmed without the help of a tour guide. I highly recommend hiring Fabrizio as your tour guide. Pompeii is amazing and so is Fabrizio!
Linda P.United States
By Fabrizio was on time and made going to Pompeii an. amazing trip for us we thank him so much what a lovely time we had informative funny just loved it. He knows his stuff. Highly recommend
Manny LLanoUnited States
Great tour guide. Very informative Extremely welcoming Flexible. Provided much insights of the sites
Kim Janz SaucedoUnited States
Fantastic tour. Enjoyed the drive along the Amalfi Coast and to Pompeii. Would definitely recommend.
Julia GigliUnited Kingdom
This tour with Fabrizio was brilliant. We have a 6-year-old and a very energetic 5-year-old. But Fabrizio was excellent with them - incorporating games and activities that brought Pompeii to life. They were both so engrossed with the daily life - and eventual ending - of Pompeii. All thanks to Fabrizio and his ability to engage with them on their level. He was quite happy to answer the parents' questions, as well. He was very knowledgeable and passionate; highly recommended.
Megan McCainUnited States
Fabrizio was wonderful! Our children were completely engaged with his activities and he made an such an impression on them, they haven't stopped talking about it since we got home! They both agree that our tour of Pompeii was their favorite part of our vacation. Fabrizio was very knowledgeable and friendly to the adults in our family as well.
Grace V.United States
Fabrizio was really knowledgeable, and he planned the day so that we could see the highlights and avoid the crowds. He made the trip to Pompeii and Herculaneum a wonderful experience for all of us.
Melissa CornellUnited States
Andy Royce98115, WA, United States
Fabrizio is very committed to his work which made our 3.5 hour tour very enjoyable. Excellent way to experience Napoli...
Carmen RossiUnited States
Fabrizio gave an outstanding tour, detailed, answered questions.
Roberta VendettiUnited States
Fabrizio picked us up at our hotel & drove us to our 1st stop at Pompei. Since I twisted my ankle in Rome & needed to us a cane, Fabrizio was conscientious about my safety & being able to see everything on the excursion. Due to us traveling in mid-January most of the restaurants were closed for the season but he was able to find us a place for a great lunch in the Amalfi Coast area. Fabrizio was giving us all information about the region & answered all of our questions. 100% recommend this trip!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Roberta and friends, I must thank you for a very nice day! take care and enjoy sicily!! with love, fabrizio
Margot MoomawUnited States
Fabrizio B is personable and knowledgeable. His familiarity with and knowledge of the site were vast, and he led us efficiently from one point of interest to another, modifying the tour by what was available and remarkable about the different locations. We came away with a good understanding of Roman life and a deep appreciation for their city planning, building, engineering and modernity such as water systems and sewers which are still lacking in many parts of the world 2000 years later.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Margot, your company was just as pleasant! ciao, fabrizio
Norma Amaya-ChavezUnited States
We are still lauding Fabrizio's wonderful guide skills. He was AWESOME! Extremely knowledgeable in history as well in all the physical areas we visited. He was extremely courteous and accommodating; he allowed us to personalize our tour and still keep within the time frame allowed. He educated us by taking use to see how Olive Oil is made, we were thrilled, still having wonderful memories of this tour. Fabrizio is a very special guide and I would highly recommend him to all who ask about him.
Vera NewmanSandy Springs, GA, United States
Fabrizio picked us up at our hotel in Rome and transferred us to the Amalfi Coast. The transfer was perfect, and everything in between as well. He was very knowledgeable and saw to it that we didn't miss anything along the way, which we would have if we took the train. Thank you for a perfect day!!
Amy JareckiUnited States
Wow! The tour of Pompeii was fantastic. Our guide, Fabrizio was extremely knowledgeable and explained everything along the way. This was the highlight of our vacation. I highly recommend a private tour, it's worth every euro!
The Best Guide Ever! We've had several guided trips in Italy. Fabrizio was so knowledgeable, had such a great sense of humour and was so patient answering questions of all sorts.Fabrizio is an excellent guide for Pompeii . I wish we'd booked him for other tours we took from our base in Sorrento.
Steven MillerUnited States
Fabrizio was an amazing guide, with very good English and a great personality. We learned so much on this tour!
Robin CaveUnited Kingdom
An absolutely fantastic tour. We wanted to spend four hours at Pompeii which is probably longer than normal but we didn't regret a minute. It gave Fabrizio chance to take us to parts that most guides don't get chance to go to and his enthusiasm and knowledge was great.
Jill MahrFallbrook, CA, United States
Our tour with Fabrizio was an excellent experience! He was funny, smart and always on top of things, he definitely knows his history and he explained it to us in a way we understood. He made sure we all (6 of us) were doing just what we wanted and were having a great time. The van he picked us up in was so nice & comfortable, very luxurious! His driving was perfect. We couldn't have asked for a better tour guide!
Robert KorsonUnited States
Fabrizio did an outstanding job. Besides getting us to all the places we wanted to see and more, he was very informative. He made our experience wonderful.
Adrian DeshotelUnited States
Fabrizio is an excellent guide. He was on-time to meet us at port, and walk us to meet our private boat and driver for the day. He was also able to plan and advise the best times to visit certain sites of Capri, avoiding the crowds, and created a wonderful luxe atmosphere of visiting Capri. We felt like we were part of the local crowd, rather than just tourists. Lunch was also a leisurely event. A fantastic experience with Fabrizio.
Fabrizio is very friendly, professional and knows his country and culture very well. He was able to answer all questions thoughtfully, themes ranging from the historical to food and music! He was on-time to meet us at port, and more importantly, kept an eye on the schedule throughout the day, and allowed enough leeway for the unexpected gelato or two. our group of 7 adults had an excellent, unsurpassed experience in Sorrento. (We had another day in Capri with Fabrizio too!)
Michelle BeechUnited Kingdom
Pompeii was far larger than we could ever have imagined and was fascinating. Herculaneum had the structural parts of wooden buildings! Mount Vesuvian was closed due to bad weather so Fabrizio suggested that we should see Oplontis that was absolutely wonderful. Fabrizio was excellent! He knew so much and had a passion for the subject. Thank you.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ciao Michelle, thanks a lot, it was nice meeting you, hopefully we will meet again... fabrizio
Richard McAdamsUnited States
An unforgettable day: from the dock, a walking tour of Opera House and Royal Palace area and Spaccanapoli area, pizza lunch and off to Pompeii in the afternoon. Fabrizio planned a great day for us based on our specific interests. He was a fountain of information, kept us moving along and delivered us back to the ship with plenty of time to spare. His command of English is exceptional and he was able to make the excursion fascinating for all in our group of 12 that included children ages 8-16.
Jennifer BarnesUnited Kingdom
Alexander GrinbergUnited States
Fabrizio is an excellent, knowledgeable and friendly guide. I would highly recommend him to anyone who wants to visit Napoli, Pompeii or any of the coastal towns like Sorrento. He speaks perfect English and Spanish besides his native Italian. He was very patient waiting for us outside of the cruise terminal, and his van (new Mercedes mini van) is excellent for travel for up to 8 people. Thank you Fabrizio!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: gracias Fernando!
Ma. Victoria PangilinanPhilippines
Fabrizio's passion for archeology and history is evident and contagious- he was obviously very knowledgeable as he answered every question we had satisfactorily. We appreciated that he was mindful of our interests. My husband and I had with us our 3 children aged 16, 14 and 7.
Christobel SayMacleod, VICTORIA, Australia
Fabrizio did a great job on a very hot and dusty day. He showed us Pompeii in a short time, with a variety of different types of ruins and it was truly spectacular. He engaged the children, helped us with finding water and was clear in his directions and instructions for when we parted ways. He recommended a great resturant in Sorrento, too!
Parfait pour une famille. Très intéressant! Nous le suggérons à tous. Fabrizio était exceptionnel!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Merci Stephan! à la prochaine...
Sergio OjedaUnited States
Fabrizio was the best tour guide we had in this vacation if not ever!, He is very passionate of his job and very knowlodge of what is best to see, we were a group of 13 and he was always in control to help us maximize this tour, we had a great time , we visit Pompei, Sorrento and Capri, took us to the best restaurant in Sorrento (caprese salad, mamma mia!!) and the best Gelateria in Capri, we had the greatest memories for this tourl, Thank you Fabrizio!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thankk you Sergio say hello to all your beautiful family and friends! good memories! fabrizio
Felix SassoUnited States
Fabrizio was energetic, knowledgeable, interesting, and most of all concerned with our needs. This was our second visit to Pompeii, but it was the most memorable due to Fabrizio's guidance. I would recommend him very highly to anyone interested in any of his guided tours.
Fabrizio was a pleasure to have as our guide. He is extremely personable and makes you feel very welcome. He was extremely knowledgeable about Pompeii and the surrounding area. I'm sure that in the time we were together we only touched the surface of the information he had to share! We highly recommend Fabrizio.
Emily IveyUnited States
Fabrizio is an excellent guide who brings to life the time of ancient Pompeii and Ercole. He makes the day fun and very interesting and took us to places that we normally would not see. I highly recommend him as he is a professional and loves what he does.
Mary McgeeUnited States
Fabrizio was the consummate host...on time, responsive to our needs, comfortable vehicle, managed time well, left us on our own to explore, eat, etc., made great recommendations when asked. Because we were on a cruise our time in each village was somewhat limited...We just needed more time everywhere for our own pleasure, but that was out of our control. Fabrizio managed the day perfectly in terms of getting us to as many villages as time allowed, seeing the sights, and allowing us some time on our own.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: thank you Mary!!!
Debra PohlmannUnited States
We were fortunate to get Fabrizio as our personal guide for the day to tour Sorrento, the Amalfi Coast and the Isle of Capri. Fabrizio made our day a memorable one. He was very knowledgeable, personable and such a gentleman. There were four of us in the group and he customized the day to make sure all our needs were met. Would highly recommend him as a guide. Wish I could take him with us to Ireland next year.
