Traveler Reviews of Private Tours in Pompeii-Italy by Tour Guide Giancarlo R. (Guide #27319)

Carla Taylor


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

Giancarlo is an excellent and charming guide and knowledgeable archaeologist who brought both Herculaneum and Oplontis alive for us. He was consistently willing to answer all our questions with knowledge and insight. We highly recommend Giancarlo as a guide.

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
