Tour: #62862, Early Morning Ancient Pompeii with a Private Guide, Pompei, Italy    
Date: Nov 6/19

Hello, My girlfriend and I recently took a trip to Rome for her 50th birthday and the one thing she wanted to do is tour the ruins of Pompeii. My girlfriend chose your company to take us and we couldn't have been more happy. Giuseppe was our guide on the adventure of a lifetime, he made Pompeii really come to life. His knowledge of the site and overall enthusiasm for showing this wonderful landmark was refreshing. Highly recommended, 5 star guide for sure , thanks Giuseppe!

Giusseppe has been a great guide. Our private visit to Pompey was fabulous, he knew a lot and everything was very well explained; he was very flexible and professional. We definately recommend his services and will for sure contact him when we are back to Italy for more private experiences

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Fatima, thank you very much for your comments. The longer duration of my tour of Pompeii, 2,5hrs (most of the tours show a duration of 2hrs) is essential to better appreciate the life style of the ancient citizens and to see more sites within the archaeological complex. Thank you Wish you all the best! G

Giseppe was very enthusiastic and knowledgeable. We have 2 daughters under 18 that took the tour with us and he made sure that it was ok with us about whether to censor some parts of the tour. At the end of the tour he recommended some other parts of Pompeii which we could explore on our own. We had issues with public transportation because of the New Year holiday and he was willing to adjust his schedule at the last minute. Luckily our home owner bailed us out in the final hour with 5 bus tickets.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Joanne, Thank you very much for your comment! It was amazing for me to have and you and your family as guests in the ruins of Pompeii! We had a great day! Ciao G

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Laurent, thank you very much for your words. During our walking tour of the ruins of Pompeii we crossed the site from a side to the other; I tried to show you the highlights and hidden corners of the site, away from the beaten path. You and your family were fantastic following me everywhere we go with attention, passion and a great smile. Thank you very much. Big Hug to your children Giuseppe

Tour: #62862, Early Morning Ancient Pompeii with pick up in Naples and drop off in Pompeii for Jeffrey Barnett, Pompei, Italy    
Date: Jun 19/18

We had a great time with Giuseppe! We were able to arrange for him to pick us up at our Airbnb in Naples for an extra charge, and it was money well spent. We were at Pompeii when it opened, and beat most of the crowds and most of the heat. This is the way to go! He was very knowledgeable and very patient as we had a group of five with ages ranging from 12 to 86. Highly recommend this guide and this tour!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Jeffrey!! I had a great time with you and your family, too!! We did a great tour of Pompeii and great fun during the journey from Naples to Pompeii in my "super van" :))) Hope our paths will cross again Thank you very much Giuseppe

Giuseppe was an amazing tour guide. He really interacted well with my teens Great tour of pompeii my only wish was that we had allotted more than 2.5 hours. Giuseppe even picked us up at our hotel and droped us at the train station for an extra fee, it was such a relaxed day to have him guide us through pompeii.I would encourage you to use him as a guide...he told us he also does tours in Rome! Next trip Rome Giuseppe!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Erin, Thank you so much for your gratifying and spontaneous comment about me and our tour of the Ruins of Pompeii form Naples with private transportation. We had a great day and I would like to thank you for contacting me and to congratulate you for your sons. They were perfect showing high interest for the visit and following me step by step, word by word. I am super they will keep the memories of the facts of Pompeii for a long time. Say hello to them by my side. A warm hug to everyone. Ciao G

Giuseppe is probably the best tour guide I ever had with my long experiences using Tours by Locals website. He is knowledgeable and tailor-made our tour based on my interests in learning about Ancient Rome and Southern Italy. Although it was not included in the cost of the tour, Giuseppe was very kind to use his car particular for me because according to the weather forecast, it was supposed to rain heavily in the afternoon, which indeed happened. He drove me back to Naples Central Station.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Tim and…… Buongiorno Beatrice, Thank you very much for everything! For contacting me, for giving me the chance to show you the extraordinary Pompeii, for sharing facts and personal thoughts with me and for your wonderful review!! I think that we definitively had a great time in Pompeii and the journey by my car was very funny talking and laughing about our favourite subjects! I wish you all the best, a big good luck and a deep and sincere happiness. A special embrace to the little Beatrice! Ciao G

Our tour of Pompeii with Giuseppe was nothing short of exceptional. Giuseppe was warm and easy-going, as well as extremely knowledgeable about Pompeii. His detailed and interesting information painted a picture for us of what it was like to live at the time of Pompeii. I would certainly recommend Giuseppe and would be interested in going on any other tour that he offers.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Megan! Thank you very much for your excellent words about me and our tour of Pompeii. You together with your marlelous family were so cooperative and nice with me making the tour interesting and successful. Thank you very much. All the best. Giuseppe

Guiseppe was an excellent guide. My husband and I highly recommend him. He answered every quested we asked about Pompei and gave very detailed answers. He knew the layout, so we did not have to bother with a map. Having Guiseppe as our private guide made Pompei a very enjoyable experience!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Laura, Thank you very much for your comments. We definitively had a great tour in the Ruins of Pompeii exploring together the places of their daily life and talking about their habits and customs. Moreover I was so happy and glad to show you and such a specialist as your husband is, the way the citizens of Pompeii provided for potable water and the system they invented to let water running in all the pipes. Thank you very much again. Take care Giuseppe

My parents (age 80 and 76) thoroughly enjoyed our tour. I appreciated his concern on my mother"s mobility and care in helping up/down stairs. Very informative. My parents appreciated his repeating of information as we moved through the ruins and learned immensely from this technique. I would recommend him to anyone touring Pompeii. His enthusiasm and knowledge was outstanding.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Catherine, thank you very much for your words and thoughts about me and our walking tour in Pompeii. You and your parents are lovely persons and it came natural to me to find the ideal syntony with them. Thank you and a big hug to you and them. Giuseppe

Giuseppe was a wonderful guide! We joined his Pompeii tour and he was able to bring the city back to life for us with his clear explanations of how the city lived during those times. His knowledge of the ruins is amazing! We had a small glitch with our travel plans, and arrived late for our tour but Giussepe kindly accommodated us with no problems. I would recommend Giuseppe again for any tour!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Mary Grace. We had a great time in Pompeii. It’s a joy for me to hear that you , your husband and two kids enjoyed the visit of the Ruins. Thank you very much for your review and many congratulations for your sons. It’ s so evident they love history and that they go in all they do, in depth! !!

This is an unmissable tour - not only is Giuseppe a fabulous guide, but seeing Pompeii when it is empty of other tourists is an incredible experience. Worth every penny and if you do nothing else…do this tour.

Giuseppe is THE BEST tour guide for Pompeii & Capri, even Naples! He is so open to having the children ask questions, and is very attentive to their unique interests/needs! My son is autistic, and G was so fantastic in being patient with him! G really took the time to cater our tour to OUR needs, not just giving us a standard tour! And every chance he had, he was telling us about something, and we LOVED that! His passion & knowledge was limitless, and we felt so fortunate to have had I'm as our guide

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mark, thank you very much for your words. I have loved to show you the beauties of my country and to tell you about the way of being and living of the locals. I hope to see you again as soon as possible to keep exploring my region.

Giuseppe REALLY went out of his way to make sure we were comfortable & happy. He met us at the train station and was extremely accommodating to all of our needs! (Finding restrooms, ATM machines, etc). And talk about knowledgeable...he gave us facts/details/information from the minute we were arrived in the train station until the minute our tour had ended! We were sooo happy with his level of expertise that we booked him an additional 2 more times that week! He made discovering Pompeii so interesting
