Our guide is very funny and able to take us to roam around both huge sites in a heat wave. He's very precise and detailed.

In general, the experience was good - well-guided, but with headsets that allowed us to view things in our own time and not always stick close to the guide. The guide's Italian accent was a little heavy, so I wasn't always sure whether other guests (including my kids) were able to follow what he was saying, especially when he used Italian names for mythological characters that the general public might not know as well to begin with. I also can understand how one guest in our group was confused about the initial meeting place - while I was able to figure it out, it could have been made even clearer, perhaps in direct communications from the tour operator to all the guests.

Have Michele as our guide was worth the price of admission. His knowledge and expertise made the experience worth every penny. Stephen Pitt

4 Cruise ships came to Naples on morning of our tour...totally destroyed the tour. Guide's directions how to return to Naples from Herculaneum were wrong.

Archaeological Wonders

Pompeii

Enjoy a relaxed walk around Pompeii and visit its crowned jewels: the Basilica, the Forum, the infamous Lupanare, the Theatres, Casa del Menandro, and more! Listen to the story of this remarkable city with a heartbreaking past- buried under layers of ash when Mount Vesuvius erupted in 79 AD. Marvel at the famous plaster casts of the victims.

Herculaneum

This city may be smaller than Pompeii, but it is better preserved than Pompeii. Pause at the beach warehouses to cast your eyes over the skeletons of 300 victims. Walk past the charming Samnite House, the thermal baths, the bakery, and the house of Deers, with an archeologist guide beside you for a deep dive into how people of ancient Rome lived, loved, prayed, and died.
