Giancarlo was an outstanding guide. We were a 3 generation family touring Italy, Giancarlo provided so much insight, he has a great knowledge of Pompei. Our grandsons' ages 10 & 14 were fascinated and our daughter didn't want the tour to end. We totally enjoyed our tour and would highly recommend Giancarlo

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Meg Thank you very much for your great feedback. Hope to see you soon for another tour Best regards Giancarlo

Date: Dec 4/18

We had a great day with our driver Francesco. He maneuvered the roads and traffic with ease. We had opportunities to stop at overlooks for photos, as well as free time in Sorrento and Amalfi to explore on our own. A delicious lunch in Ravello completed the day.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Kathleen Thank you very much for your great feedback! Best wishes Giancarlo

A great tour of Pompeii. We have many friends who have visited Pompeii and some were unimpressed or found it to be a lesser event on their trip. A tour with Giancarlo allowed us to get so much more from the site. I would recommend Giancarlo without reservation.

I have got to say this was absolutely fantastic Giancarlo Is so enthusiastic and knowledgable it is infectious. You come away smiling and chatting about just how good it was. We visited as my son was doing classics for gcse - a field trip! Giancarlo Looked st his syllabus and altered the tour to take it all in. It was never a rush and over ran - but as always he led with a smile. I cannot say enough good words. Really great.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Steven Thank you so much for your beautiful review. I'm very glad you liked your tour. Best regards Giancarlo

Giancarlo's knowledge and enthusiasm is infectious. It was a pleasure to spend the day with him. It isn't cheap, but it was well worth it if you want a greater insight. Fascinating places made more fascinating by Giancarlo's commentary. I would recommend Giancarlo without hesitation.

Tour: #413481, Pompeii & Herculaneum shore excursion led by an Archaeologist, Naples, Campania, Italy    view tour
Date: Sep 16/18

Our day with Giancarlo (and our driver Francesco) was BRILLIANT. It was a good thing we did the sites in the advertised order since the splendour of Herculaneum would have overshadowed what is so widely known as an archaeological / historical powerhouse at Pompeii. Giancarlo brought both ancient cities to life for us, his enthusiasm being utterly contagious. Having watched a lot of people stumbling around looking lost, I know for sure this is the only way to see the ancient wonders. Simply awesome.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Carla Thank you very much for your beautiful feedback ! I'm glad you liked the tour and I'm honored of being your guide. I hope too see again for another tour! Best regards Giancarlo

Absolutely a wonderful tour. Our guide had such humor and made the trip interesting and informative. We were together for 8 hours and the time flew. We were a group of 8 and had a great experience. Our guide for Pompeii was both knowledgeable and great also. A day well spent.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your beautiful feedback Jacqueline! Hope to see you again! Best regards Giancarlo

Giancarlo is very knowledgeable about Pompeii. Since he is an archeologist there, he knows the ins and outs of the city and was able to explain all of the ruins so we learned a lot. Our kids (13 & 10) also enjoyed the tour. We avoided the long lines and crowds. I would highly recommend this tour.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Karrie THank you for your beautiful words! I appreciate . I Hope to see you soon again for another tour! Best regards Giancarlo

Tour: #413505, Herculaneum Classic tour led by an Archaeologist, Pompeii, Italy    view tour
Date: Apr 23/18

Giancarlo guided us in the 'Classic Tour' of Herculaneum lasting 3 hours. He is an archaeologist with an obvious passion for, and extensive knowledge' of, his subject together with an attractive way of picking out, describing and explaining the remains which he showed us. He is an excellent guide who speaks excellent English. I strongly recommend him to anyone who wishes to come away from Herculaneum with a deep understanding (rather than a mere superficial touristic view) of the remains.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your fantastic comment!

If you're looking for a real expert on Pompeii, Giancarlo is a walking Google. Tremendous! And he was very patient and accommodating when we were 30 mins late due to traffic. Thank you Giancarlo!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Brandon! Thank you so much for your nice and curious compliment!!! No one has never called me "walking Google" before! I'm very honoured. Hope to see you soon for another tour! Have a great day All the best Giancarlo
