Pat ProfetaUnited States
Anna guided us through Herculaneum and it was memorable. She is a knowledgeable and thoroughly engaging archeologist. I would highly recommend her for private tours of Pompeii and Herculaneum, and other sites in the Naples/Amalfi area. She brings an in-depth understanding of her subject matter, and a marvelous personality that brings to life, with empathy, a tragic page from ancient times.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Pat Thank you so much for your great review. I was very glad to meet you and be your guide. I hope to se you again for another tour All the best Anna
We had a tour of Pompeii with Anna S. this week. She was AMAZING! very interesting, knowledgeable, helpful, considerate and very aware that I was using a walker and that we had a five-year old in our group of 10. Even before the tour, she answered many questions to help me plan our day. I cannot say enough wonderful things about our experience. Thank you, Anna!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Kathy! It was a pleasure to be your guide, thanks for your great feedback! Hope to see you again! Best regards Anna
Thomas PaceUnited States
Anna is an excellent tour guide. Knowledgeable, personable, warm and gracious, she made our visit to each of three sites both interesting and enjoyable. She did a great job separating fact from folklore, never hesitating to question some popular myths with facts and adding little known facts to each element of the tour. Her English is very good with just the right amount of Italian accent to make English a more beautiful language. The three of us in our group would strongly recommend her for any tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ciao Thomas Thank you so much for your lovely review and for your beautiful words. I hope to see you again, it was a wonderful day spent together. It was a great pleasure to be your guide All the best Anna

Outstanding and wonderful!! Anna was an exceptional and extremely knowledgeable tour guide. We learned so much; she was professional, thoughtful, attentive and made the day quite enjoyable. My husband had quite the background in history (and I did not) but we both found this to be among our top experience on vacation.

We felt that Anna did a superb job of making the site come alive for us, from the elites who lived in Herculaneum, to the fishermen who rescued survivors. Her knowledge of the history, the daily lives of the people who lived there, the artifacts collected, and the difficulties involved in current excavations were detailed for us. We were constantly reminded of Anna's pointers on our visit to the Naples Archeological Museum, three days later. She is exceptional.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello TJ Thank you very much for your wonderful feedback! Best regards Anna
Nicola PalmerUnited Kingdom
My teenage daughter and I had a wonderful 4 hours with Anna touring Pompeii. We both had some knowledge of the site already, but Anna provided as with further depth. She gave us a real insight into life in Pompeii at the time of the eruption. As an archaeologist she also described the history of the excavation of the site from the Bourbons, including the current excavations. We both came away having really enjoyed our day.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Nicola Thank you very much for your wonderful feedback! I hope to see you again for further tours! Best regards Anna
Chris LegardUnited Kingdom
Anna was a wonderful tour guide. We did Pompeii and Herculaneum in a full day, and got so much more from the day with Anna's knowledgable, professional, insightful and anecdotal guidance than we would have without her. Her experience as an archaeologist shone through in her passion and knowledge and the whole family loved it. The bonus was that she was also excellent company. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending her to anyone!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Chris Thank you very much for your great review! I hope to see you again in Pompeii! Best regards Anna

Charlotte S.United States
Anna was the perfect tour guide for us. She was knowledgeable, enthusiastic and full of energy. We were a group of mostly science oriented academics and needed some flexibility until the last minute. Tours By Locals and Anna were perfect for us. She was able to answer our many questions, provided great background and kept everyone's interest. We loved her. I was thanked multiple times by members of our group for arranging the tour. We all would happily recommend Tours By Locals and Anna.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Charlotte Thank you very much for your great review! I hope to see you again for another tour Best wishes Anna

We are so lucky to have a Napoletana to guide us to all the wonderful historic sites. I don't see any better candidate than her in this area! We can't wait to come again. Molto grazie per il caffè Napoletana e il babà!

My family enjoyed the tour with Anna. She is extremely knowledgeable of the history and archeology of Pompeii. Anna communicates well and with passion and is detailed oriented. The young people in our family very much enjoyed finding out about Pompeii. Anna was telling a compelling story. They suggested we visit the Archeological Museum in Napoli to complete the story and we did. The Blais Batres family.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Gerard! A huge hug to all your beautiful family! All the best! Anna
Clovis ButterworthDenver, CO, United States
A visit to Pompeii and Herculaneum has been a lifetime dream, and I wanted it to be the best possible experience. Anna and her driver made it that. Anna's knowledge and English language skills were expected, but it was her ability to understand and adapt to what I wanted to get out of this experience (focus on civil engineering aspects), plus her ability to adapt to the weather (very hot) and our physical limitations (we are in our mid-70's and have some mobility issues) that made it special. Thanks!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Clovis! I'm so glad you liked your tour! Thank you for your beautiful feedback! Best regards Anna
Rebecca StovallATLANTA, GEORGIA, United States
I was traveling with my mother, my aunt and a family friend and we had a couple hours to kill before I train in Naples. I connected with Anna and set up a tour to have pizza and the highlights of Naples and it was a wonderful tour with her driver.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your wonderful feedback!

Paul AustinUnited States
Anna was wonderful , we met her at Pompeii just as the park opened. This enabled us to view Pompie without hundreds of other tourists. Anna's English is very good so we were able to hear and understand her as she describes the ruins in graphic detail. After we toured Pompeii, we met our driver and Anna took us to a delightful local restaurant with wonderful pizza in an outdoor setting. After lunch we toured Herculaneum, a beautiful city that was covered in mud during the same eruption as Pompeii.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much!
Eleanor JeckUnited States
Very good guide and savvy as well. She was aware of a large group with a loud speaking guide right behind us and kept one step ahead of her so we could hear what she had to say.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Eleanor for your beautiful feedback!! I'm sorry for the incovenience about other loud speaking guide, but I'm glad you liked our tour! Hope to see you again All the best Anna
Catherine ToranUnited States
Anna was a great guide, and gave us all the highlights and stories that brought our visit alive! Except for the fact that we were on a tight schedule (cruise), would have loved to spend more time learning about Pompeii! Thank you Anna!!
