VALENTINA was a terrific guide for our group of 10 ranging in age from 6 to 72 with teenagers. Everyone was awestruck by the huge expanse that was Pompeii and Valentina showed us so many different things that kept us all engaged for the full 2.5 hours. She constantly adapted to meet the needs of the group, was understanding when our drivers arrived late at the wrong gate, and when we finished she got us seated in a little restaurant outside the site. We couldn't have asked for more. Thanks Valentina!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Linda, thank you!!�� But...Who was in the 70s?? You were all nice and fit people! Come back soon for diving in the waters of Baia, in the Phlegrean Fields. Looking forward to...huge hugsxxxx

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Dave, Thank you! you're very easygoing people, funny and exciting beeing with your for the day. Perfect travellers to be in Naples with. Hope to meet you soon for new adventures! Hugsxxxx Valentina

Date: Oct 24/19

Valentina did really well in accommodating our tour group of 9 people aged from 6 through to 81! We had a 2 hour tour of Pompeii in the morning, lunch on Vesuvius followed by a trek to the summit (not the 81 year old...) and everyone had a great day, also no stress as picked up in a private bus from the Cruise terminal and dropped back with time to spare. She was enthusiastic and happy to answer any questions, highly recommended!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello dear! Thank you for your nice review, I really enjoyed the day, so much fun with the kids and our game. The winner is.....your mum! Tell her to come back, she deserves a big gelato!!

There was impression that the guide is really bored with all the tour. So unfortunately the tour wasn't interesting at all..

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Ilana, thank you!!! You're my first "one star" review! There must be a reason for that.....But I always appreciate when you write a review, it can be always useful. I was not bored at all. I was concentrated to find the best language for your sons, three nice adolescents. They seemed to be interested. Probably you expected a different experience in a cultural site. Good luck for all. Best wishes. Valentina

Valentina met us at the railway station and we walked straight to the entrance gate where she purchased our tickets for us. During our two hour visit she gave us sufficient information to enable us to understand exactly what happened in Pompeii, but at the same time not overloading our brains! As the site was quite busy she guided us to areas that were less crowded, but nonetheless extremely interesting. A very good tour, thank you Valentina.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you to you! Very nice meeting you :-)

Valentina was an incredible guide. She was knowledgable and very helpful. She ended up taking us to an archeological site that no other tourists were at and we got to see archeologists in action which was very interesting. I would recommend her time and time again.

Valentina brought substance and insight to our tour of Pompeii and the Amalfi Coast. Our group of seven consisted of three teenagers and four adults ages 42, 48 and two in their seventies and Valentina kept the entire group fascinated with the geography and historical insights of not only "what happened" at a certain time in history by "why" and the impacts on today's society. A great tour with a marvelous guide who kept us all enthralled with her commentary.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Greg, Thank you for your nice words. It's a big pleasure for me to know that you've appreciated my land and enjoyed the day together. Looking forward to meeting you soon again! Arrivederci...

We had a wonderful day with Valentina! Before our visit, Valentina worked with us to arrange a private boat tour from Sorrento to Amalfi and Rovello. Valentina selected an amazing captain from Giuliani Charters, who made the experience very special, including side trips, and toasting with a bottle of Prosecco when we were almost back to Sorrento. Along the way, Valentina made helpful suggestions about activities/eating in Amalfi and Rovello, and shared her insights of the surroundings. Lovely experience!

Valentina is an excellent guide. She is very knowledgable and passionate about Naples as well as the surrounding archeological wonders at Pompeii and Herculaneum. We booked Valentina for two days and spent a very enjoyable time learning about the rich history of the city as well as the tragedies that befell those two cities when Mount Vesuvius erupted. We recommend Valentina highly to any visitors to the area looking for a personalized learning experience.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Neil! Nice hearing from you and grateful for you nice words! Waiting for your next trip, looking forward to meeting you soon! Hugs to you, Betsy and the kids

We had a lovely 6.5hr tour of Naples with Valentina (group of 4 people). The tour was a good balance of local culture and food , art, history and architecture. Valentina was delightful , very knowledgeable and able to adjust her tour to our pace and desires/needs. She was there to meet us at the train station and made sure that our bags were securely put away and later that we were safely on our way before heading home. I recommend Valentina for a tour of Naples and/or the area!

She was excellent. Went at a pace to accommodate all our needs. Got a taxi when one couple needed to return to the ship. We loved walking in and out of the streets. Enjoyed the subway comments and ride. Returned us to the ship completely

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you dear for your nice words! and for the day...I really enjoyed it with you all. You're nice people. Thank Stuart again... and I hope to meet you again with your new bag, hand-made in Naples! Looking forward to it. Lovexxxx

Valentina brought the real Naples to life for us. She encouraged us to customize the tour to fit our wants and needs and managed to get us through the crowds to be in just the right places at the right times to enjoy the best rated pizza in Naples as well as finger food and cafe along the way and to visit the underground and learn more about the history of Naples and the surrounding area. We're sure she can provide you with an incredible experience.
