What you'll do

Join us in our small group of MAX 8 PAX for a special and intimate tour of Pompeii with TRUE archaeologists!

With the help of my university colleagues and students I created this walking tour for who wants to understand the roman times through the eyes of an archaeologist that can explain you the different aspects of the daily life of 2000 years ago.

Working as an archaeologist and tour guide in different places of the Mediterranean sea I’m honored to have hosted more than 5000+ guests and companies (as Apple, Google, Facebook, Airbnb, Cisco, Alibaba) from all over the world to Pompeii with my online and in person experiences that obtained 1000+ 5 star reviews.

In our experience we'll show you in a very relaxed way some of the most important buildings but also hidden details.

The morning time is the best for who wants to spend the entire day into the site. After 2 hours walking tour you will have a great introduction and a good orientation about the ruins.

The afternoon time in Summer is the version called UNCROWDED, the best way to appreciate the ancient city without be suffocated by the crowd and the hot temperature!


IMPORTANT NOTES:

- Ticket entrance is not included
- OUR GROUPS WILL BE MAXIMUM OF 8 PAX
- THE RUSSIAN VERSION IS AVAILABLE ONLY for PRIVATE GROUP

They were only 4 guests. The guide was friendly and nice. However we expected the tour to be more engaging with enthusiastic storytelling.

Roberto was very accommodating, showing up at our hotel (very near entrance). His tour was exactly what we wanted -- lots of knowledge, covering all the top spots and, when needed, in depth answers to our questions. Great pace of the tour.

Excellent tour and special care!! We cannot say enough about our tour with Roberto! His flexibility, knowledge, kindness, patience and guidance cannot be matched. He went ABOVE AND BEYOND for the 4 of us.. He is so personable and Roberto took the time to speak with us several times before the trip as we had questions or request for updates. He was very avaliable and we knew he would be personable. He is also extremely knowledgeable about Herculaneum- as well as Pompei and we added this special tour before Pompei. He helped us find a place for our luggage and discover transportation. This is his passion and study- We are so glad to have been a part of this and met friends along the way. 10 of 10!! Grazie mil- Roberto!

We had a great tour of Pompei with Roberto. His story telling and knowledge of history bring the city alive! A tip for novices: bring lots of water and an umbrella, it gets hot in Pompei!
