  • Excellent tour with Anna

    Anna was wonderful! She was extremely knowledgeable and kept the kids (age 13 and 11) very engaged. The pace was perfect. Booking was super easy and they sent Anna’s name and contact information prior to our meeting time. Great tour!

  • Super tour!

    We loved our day with Anna Sorrento. It was an easy parent at the gate and she even walked us back to the train station so we don’t get lost.

    We had a five year old with us and she brilliantly managed to keep him alert by focusing on his needs and wishes as well as continuing to give us parents a full on tour, answering all our questions. She showed us the main market place, the mosaics, the victims and the frescoes! We really got a great overview of pompeii and so much more.

    Our son spoke of having visited an old place with his mom and an archeologist and can’t wait to tell his friends about it.

    Thank you for the wonderful tour! we highly recommend it.

    Also the booking – which we did less than 12 hours before – was seamless and the office got in touch with us via email, sent us Anna’s contact number and always replied immediately.

  • Super visite du site adaptée aux enfants

    Nous avons énormément apprécié notre visite. Notre guide Nello était très cultivé et passionné, il savait comment intéresser ma fille de 7 ans, il nous a montré tous les endroits les plus intéressants en nous donnant plein d’informations et d’anecdotes, en nous montrant également des photos et des dessins représentant le site tel qu’il était alors. Très belle expérience, on recommande vivement.

  • Fantastica visita guidata a Pompei con bambini

    Avere avuto Ilaria come guida nel tour a Pompei ha dato un valore aggiunto alla nostra visita. Ilaria ha saputo coinvolgere tutta la famiglia grazie alla sua estesa conoscenza del mondo romano (nonché greco, sannita, ecc.) e a curiosità, aneddoti, giochi e libriccini, portati appositamente per dare spiegazioni più chiare alle nostre figlie di 9 e 11 anni. Visita assolutamente consigliata!

  • Great Kids guide

    We absolutely loved our 2.5hr tour. Pitched perfectly for our daughters (particularly to the 10 year old) Daniella our guide was thoughtful, friendly and incredibly knowledgeable. She was so passionate about the site that we couldn’t help but ride on her enthusiasm! She even gave our daughters a gift each. We are so happy to have had the guide as Daniella was able to point things out to us that perhaps we would have missed otherwise. We weren’t sure we needed a guide but having had one I would totally recommend it to anyone who is considering it.
