Why take this tour
A tour to Pompeii is a bucket list favourite and it’s likely to be a once in a lifetime experience. So it’s absolutely essential that you pick one which is right for you. With Askos tours, we guarantee you a day that you’ll never forget when you book our Pompeii tour.
A specialist archaeologist guide, selected from among the best in the sector, will accompany you throughout your tour of Pompeii. On arrival at the easy-to-find meeting point, your guide will issue you with your priority entrance tickets. Bought in advance, these will enable you to skip straight past those with envious eyes waiting in line.
We have put together an itinerary that is perfect for small groups of all ages and levels of fitness. Our archaeologist guides will reveal to you those little-known secrets and hidden spots. The large public buildings, temples and magnificent monuments will certainly impress, but you’ll also see decorations and graffiti others usually miss. Plus our guides have bags of tales and anecdotes of everyday life in Pompeii to amuse and intrigue you.
You’ll walk through the Forum, the centre of religious, cultural and business life, where the admirable Basilica stands. The Via dell’Abbondanza will show you just why the Romans got their reputation for building tremendous indestructible roads. And in the rich and elegant mansions, you’ll fall in love with Roman artwork. As you cross the threshold of the theatres, you will feel shivers down your spine. You’ll know you’re standing exactly where ancient Pompeiians let their hair down and laughed at the comedies of their day. And no visit would be complete without a peek into the Lupanare, the world’s oldest house of ill repute.
With ASKOS TOURS your tour of Pompeii will be unforgettable for all the right reasons. Our passion is our vocation. Let our decades’ of experience, dedication and reliability give you the most memorable adventure.

I decided the day before to get a private guided tour for my visit to Pompeii. Askos responded right away to my request and was able to accommodate me on short notice, even arranging a guide for me at a time that worked better for me. My guide was Maria, who was wonderful and very knowledgable, and I really enjoyed my tour with her. I think the best way to see and understand Pompeii without getting overwhelmed is with a guide, and I highly recommend this tour.

Worth Every Penny
Our archaeologist-guide Antonio was bravissimo! He gave us so much pertinent and interesting information about the ruins and the people who lived there. I had been to Pompeii without a guide in the past and it was no where near as good of an experience.
The customer service team was also amazing. Allowing us to change our date easily in advanced. They also were in available to be in communication with me same day one I realized I didn’t think our public transportation was going to get us to the tour group on time. They were quick to reply my and provided me alternative solutions if we were late. In the end we were on time for our time slot and we spent the entire day there, over 5 hours and we still wanted to earn more. Thank you, ASKOS! Lisa & Jimmy
Lisa Janvrin | Couples

Laura is a wonderful guide to the National Museum in Napoli.
Guided tour of the Museum in Napoli lead by Laura who was a sparkling host, so knowledgeable and friendly. She took time to answer our questions and led us through this wonderful museum with its sections dedicated to the artefacts discovered in Pompeii and Herculaneum. Don’t miss this Museum and I hope you get Laura to show you around! Grazie Mille!

Wonderful Private Tour of the Amalfi Coast!
Our guided tour of the Amalfi Coast with Francesco was absolutely perfect! He was fun and personable, and did a great job drawing attention to points of interest and explaining what we were seeing. The views were breathtaking; the stops in Sorrento, Amalfi, and Ravello were wonderful! This tour has to be the best way to see the Amalfi Coast!
Rob Vonk | Couples
Inolvidable vivencia.Gracias y felicitaciones a Diego, nuestro guía en español. Altamente recomendable.
Annette | Familia (adolescentes)
Excellent guided tour at Pompeii and Oplontis
We had a fantastic custom tour to visit Pompeii and Oplontis. Our guide Laura was wonderful—incredibly knowledgeable and told us so many fascinating details. I am an art historian myself and I can say that Laura was an excellent and well informed guide. Francesco was our very friendly driver who picked us up in Naples and helped us through the entire day. Askos Tours attended to every detail, making sure everything was arranged. We had an amazing experience and I would highly recommend this company for any experience.
Andrea | Family (teens)
Excellent Pompeii Tour!
We were able to get our guided tour the same day we booked. The guide was an archeologist and very knowledgeable and easy to understand. The tour started right on time and covered many interesting locations.
Jim Amodeo | Couples
Great tour--highly recommend
We loved the tour of Pompeii! Our guide was great and we received a lot of great information during our tour and came away with a great understanding of life in Pompeii at the time of the eruption. Thanks for a great tour!
Elizabeth | Family (teens)
visite extrêmement intéressante, notre guide était un archéologue de Pompei (Nello). Nous avons appris une foule de détails intéressants sur la vie à Pompei.
TRUPIANO Laurent | Couples
Informative and Entertaining
Our guide Paolo was simply excellent. As a practising academic archaeologist, Paolo was able to combine for us useful historical information with entertaining tales around the artefacts and life in Pompeii at the time. He kept us engaged as we walked around the site with commentary about the various excavations at Pompeii since the 18th century and intriguing questions for our group. I can strongly recommend this tour for those who wish to learn more about life in Pompeii leading up to the Vesuvius eruption in AD 79, while extending their knowledge of the volcano eruption and its aftermath.
Rosalind | Couples
Fabulous tour of Pompei!
Polo Hebe us a wonderful, exciting and very informative tour. He is an archeologist who currently is working at Pompei and was very knowledgeable. He brought the city to life and was very good at keeping the crowd engaged. I highly recommend this tour! Easy to book and well worth it.
marysol velamoor | Family (young children)
We visited Pompei in June. Our archaeologist guide was Giulia. The tour was AMAZING and not only because of Pompei, which is a very emotional place, but also thanks to Giulia. She was at the same time friendly and very professional. THANK YOU!

Visite agréable avec Nello
La visite, qui a duré deux heures, était très agréable et enrichissante. Le site de Pompei est tellement grand qu’une visite avec un guide est très confortable ! Nello, notre guide, parlait très bien français ! Merci à lui pour ses explications et anecdotes.
Héloïse Beaudet | Couples
What a great Tour. Very well organized every step of the way from the booking to the Tour. My husband and I were well informed and prepared.

Margaux | Family (teens)
Great tour for a fantastic site!
Excellent tour with Antonio! Highly recommended. There is so much to see, so having Antonio explain the history and select buildings and sites was really great. He is really knowledgeable and a great communicator (head phones were great so we could always hear him without having to stand right next to him). He also made suggestions for other sites we could explore on our own after the tour.
Frauke B | Couples
Antonio was our guide and he was excellent! He made Pompeii come alive with his knowledge. He was a fountain of knowledge and enjoyed answering every question. He went above and beyond. Taking a tour is the only way to see Pompeii. Grazie Antonio!
Tove Steffensen | Couples
Definitely a must do!
Highly recommend this tour of Pompeii!! Family of 5 with 3 teenagers, everyone enjoyed and learned a lot. Our guide Teresa shared loads of information, answered many questions, and told stories in an engaging and quite interesting way. Definitely a must do to maximize time learning about Pompeii!
Jennifer | Family (teens)
Fabulous tour and our guide, Ivan, was so great. He was knowledgeable and patient, especially with yielding questions from some very annoying persons in our group that had they been paying attention to him, wouldn’t have needed to ask their parents questions . All in all very worth the reasonable price for a tour. Gratzie mille!
Jen S. | Family (teens)
Excelente organización y la guía Laura perfecta explicando

Emma | Family (teens)
Best tour of our trip
We absolutely loved our private tour of Pompeii with Vincenzo. It was easily the best tour of our trip and I honestly can’t imagine having got as much information about the history of Pompeii had we gone without a guide. Highly recommend!
Lakshmi | Couples
Excellent tour. Very, very much recommended
We were guided by Antonio. He was superb. He clearly has a huge depth of knowledge not just of Pompeii’s archaeology but also the historical background. He understood that a tour cannot hope to show everything, so he picked a good number of fine examples of types of buildings, leaving the clients to explore further after the tour. This meant we did not rush. He brought the people of Pompeii by revealing their homes, leisure and work activities. Antonio was happy to take questions and not once was he beaten! He did all this with lots of humour and went over the time the tour officially lasted. The bluetooth earphone meant were always able to hear him while able to hang back to look at a particular thing if interest. A high quality tour. Seeing Pompeii without a guide would be a mistake. Askos Tours in the person of Antonio provided an excellent tour. Would give 6 stars if we could.
Geoff | Couples
Great Tour Great Guide!
Giulia was a great tour guide, enthusiastic, knowledgeable and happy to answer any questions, also had a sense of humour which took our minds off the heat! Only got to see a small fraction of the site but 2 hours was plenty & really brought to life what living in Pompeii & the wider region was like. Would highly recommend this tour
Samantha Murray | Couples
Francesco notre guide, passionné et passionnant, a su nous partager son savoir. la visite du site sans lui n’aurait pas été la même! grace à lui nous sommes plongés directement dans la vie de la cité de Pompéi. les explications étaient claires, riches, vivantes. nous recommandons fortement la visite avec ce guide!
Flora D. | Couples
Fantastic tour-definitely recommend
This was an incredible experience and we are so glad we chose to view Pompeii with a guide. Our guide Alessandra was extremely knowledgeable and shared many different interesting details with us. Whether you are a huge history/archaeological enthusiast or someone just curious to learn a bit more about Pompeii, this tour is an excellent choice. She was able to answer all questions and make the ruins come to life.
Amanda | Couples
Thank you to Alessandra for a wonderful tour! Fascinating insights from the start to the end.
Louise | Couples
Interesting…even for teenagers
Wonderful tour. We wouldn’t have enjoyed Pompeii as much if it hadn’t been for our guide, Marily. She was interesting and informative, especially on a hot day AND with teenagers. The only thing we feel we missed was to see the horse and a few more of the unfortunate citizens of Pompeii that were found and casted. Thanks!
Jen | Family (teens)
Pompeii tour with Sergio
The tour was informative and well paced, bringing to life the amazing architecture and artefacts. Our tour guide, Sergio, was excellent.
Laurence Levy | Couples
So good we didn’t think about the heat
Vincenzo was a wonderful tour guide and made the experience brilliant. He was clear and engaging and brought the place to life. Great experience all round.
Claire Hunt | Family (teens)
Divertido, ameno e interesante
Compramos el pack de Pompeya y Herculano. En Pompeya estuvimos con Lello y fue súper divertido, aún con el calor que hacía nos lo hizo pasar muy bien, lo explicó todo perfecto y de forma accesible e interesante. En Herculano fue más sosegado pero también lo pasamos bien.

Pompei mit deutschsprachigem Archäologen
toller guide, der es wirklich verstand, Pompei vor unseren Augen lebendig werden zu lassen, unglaublich beeindruckende Fresken, ein riesiges Terrain, auf dem man ohne guide sicher total verloren wäre, ein Muss!!!
Christoph Neumann | Couples
Muy bien. Tener en cuenta que es un grupo de 20 personas. En total ha durado casi 2 horas y media. Los cuerpos se ve en el anticuario, no e el paseo que se vio uno muy rapido al final. Sabiendo eso, el resto muy bien, con una guía excelente: Maria Laura
Marco | Family (young children)
Gabriele was amazing. He was very knowledgeable, helpful and attentive. It was a great experience. Would recommend
Felicia Durst | Couples
Michael was absolutely amazing and full of knowledge about the ancient city of Pompei! Touring the ruins would not have been the same without one of these tours. We highly recommend using Askos tours for your next adventure to Pompei as a way to learn about all of the myths, truths, and fun facts of the city! Thank you Michael for an unforgettable time!
Raphaela | Couples
Great tour in Pompeii
Our guide Diego was incredible. So knowledgeable. Made Pompeii come alive! We really enjoyed it.
The only suggestion I have is to allow people to all get into a space before going into detail, encouraging all to move forward to allow others to enter.
I highly recommend this tour and company for a Pompeii tour!
Brad E | Family (teens)
Una mattinata a Pompei
Visita guidata con Ivan il 18 giugno. Guida molto professionale e preparata, che ha saputo coinvolgere grandi e piccini.
Alessandro | Family (young children)
The tour guide was excellent with her knowledge and insight. This was truly the best part of our trip. Thank you.
Mike | Family (teens)
Maravillosa visita guiados por María Laura. La visita con guía es casi imprescindible si se quiere entender con amplitud lo que se está viendo. Si además los comentarios están salpicados de anécdotas y referencias curiosas, todo se vuelve mucho más ameno. Muchas gracias
Esperanza | Family (teens)
Hicimos el tour con María Laura, muy interesante todo el recorrido, se nota que le gusta lo que hace, explicaba muy bien, no hubiéramos disfrutado Pompeya completamente sin la correcta explicación.

Finn | Couples
La visita guiada estuvo genial, la recomendamos para no ir sin rumbo por dentro del parque, con estas visitas siempre se aprenden cosas nuevas. Maria Laura fue nuestra guía y se nota muchísimo su pasión por la historia, la arqueología, sabe explicarlo todo muy bien y estamos muy agradecidos por esta experiencia con ella.
Sara O. | parejas
A+ to tour, guide, staff, driver
Seeing Pompeii through the eyes of an archeologist offered a whole different perspective from our previous tour. So glad we opted for this small group. Guide Alessandra was knowledgeable, personable and provided an interesting and new-to-us view of the pre-Roman villages as well as the city destroyed by Vesuvius. Askos staff, especially Katrina, were patient and helpful as we arranged and sorted a city pick up. Alfonso, our driver, navigated Napoli traffic like the pro he is. I cannot recommend Askos and this tour more highly.
Mary Hagen | Couples
Giulia rules Pompeii, ok?
A whirlwind tour of highlights of this enormous site, with information shared engagingly by Giulia – she shared insights with enthusiasm and generously answered many questions.
Keith | Couples
A day in Pompeii
We had a fabulous tour with Teresa, our archeologist. She was very engaging, passionate about her work and brought the tour to life, especially for our son (10 years old) who learnt about the Roman civilisation at school. We all thought that tour was the highlight of the day! Well done Teresa and Askos tours.
Valerie Chu | Family (young children)

Simple and Fun Company
Customer service are quick, knowledgable and helpful. This company makes everything easy for you. You can leave your luggae in a locker, you know where to meet them, you have radio headsets so you can hear your guide all the time.
They only had 1 ticket left but I was with my sister, so I called them and they opened up another spot! So grateful for this!
Our tour guide was so knowledgable, she was an archeologist, and was so funny!
At the end we can explore by ourselves.
Mubarra Shah | Friends

Vanessa Pereira | Family (young children)
Excellent tour, Giulia was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic -she obviously loves her job. Leave time at the end to explore on your own . Our tour was about 2 1/2 hr. and there was still much more to see.
Robin | Friends
I cannot recommend this enough! Our tour guide, Teresa, who is also an archeologist that works on site, was great, friendly and passionate. She took general interests in all of us and where we came from. We had so much fun and learn a great deal about the ruins and how people used to live previous to the eruption. Teresa was able to create a submersive experience, which made it even more enjoyable. Be madeful of the heat !
Anne | Friends

A wonderful and insightful tour which was conducted by Teresa. To walk in the footsteps of people that inhabited Pompei 2,000 plus years ago was incredible.
We would recommend this tour without hesitation.

Bringing Pompei to Life
An excellent introduction to discovering Pompei. Hillaria was very knowledgeable and brought the baths, luparium, houses & shops, forum and theatres to life with her stories and facts. A guided tour is a fantastic way of learning about life in the city 2000 years ago. Highly recommended

Definitely a must when you visit Pompei. So nice to know more about what you’re looking at. We had Paola and she was fantastic! It’s not rushed yet you cover so much and she even helped us with directions for further interests if we desired after the tour. Very informative! It’s just also a nice way to meet other people, too!

One of the most interesting places I’ve ever been, can’t imagine getting nearly as much out of the experience without a guide to explain it
Eoin | Couples
Il est indispensable de visiter Pompéi avec un guide. Askos Tours nous offre la possibilité de découvrir ce vestige incroyable avec un archéologue travaillant sur le site (Nelle Di Maio pour notre groupe), ainsi nous avons pu vraiment profiter des explications précises de la vie de l’époque et des nouvelles trouvailles sur le site. très belle expérience et un rapport qualité/prix excellent

Kurt Dorr | Couples
Nous avons fait la visite avec Nello. C’était super, clair,captivant,rigolo parfois ,on s’est tous senti immergé a l’époque et avons appris plein de choses . Il répondait aux questions de nos enfants de 9 et 11 ans qui ont adoré aussi. Les 2 heures passent trop vite et ça fait un sacré vide quand la visite guidée est terminée. Merci encore !
Hélène Forgey | Family (young children)
Muy buen tour
Fue una visita estupenda, 2 horas y media y se me hizo corta María Laura nos explicó muchísimos datos interesantes, tanto históricos/ culturales como anécdotas o datos prácticos. Las ruinas de Pompeya son sobrecogedoras e impresionantes en sí, pero con las explicaciones la experiencia es indescriptible. Muy bueno el hecho de llevar auricular para escuchar a la guía. Nos ha encantado, hubiera estado más horas escuchando!
Cristina | Family (teens)
AN AMAZING EXPERIENCE.
It was an incredible experience, in an incredible place. First of all, we must thank our great guide, Paola, who so obviously loves her work and loves the place. She is knowledgeable, friendly, with a sense of humour and besides her excellent english and french she also spoke excellent greek! She helped us understand the place so much so that after the tour ended we spent three more hours in Pompeii visiting the places she suggested. The tour was well organised, no time lost in queues, the group was small and easily manageable, the spots we visited well selected for their informative but also sentimental value. We were very satisfied and we highly recommend it.
Anna Economaki | Couples
Merveilleuse visite guidée de Pompéi par Paola, qui nous a fait découvrir le site. C’est la troisième fois que mon mari visitait Pompéi mais c’est la première fois qu’il a pu s’immerger autant dans la vie des habitants de cette ville. On ne dira jamais assez l’importance d’un bon guide pour effectuer ce genre de visites. Même notre fils de 10 ans est resté captivé pendant 2 heures : merci Paola !
Sarrazin | Family (young children)
Super tour guidé
Tour très intéressant de Pompéi avec le guide Nello, un archéologue qui travaille sur le site et fait des visites. Tout a été très bien expliqué avec des anecdotes et une touche d’humour ! Nous recommandons ce tour avec Nello !!
Amandine Ouvrard | Couples
That was one of the best guided tours we have ever had! Paolo who is an archeologist, gave as a fascinating tour through Pompeii with many details about the everyday life, art, architecture, history, as well as how archeologists come to scientific conclusions through excavations and their findings. Although it was raining all the time we never got bored (not even our teen ager sons!). Thank you for this great experience…
Vassiliki | Family (teens)
Nous avons fait le tour de Pompei avec Alfredo, archéologue qui a travaillé sur le site. Il nous a partagé ses connaissances et fait revivre la vie de l’époque avec beaucoup d’enthousiasme, en français qui plus est ! Un guide est indispensable pour vraiment profiter du site et de toutes les petites subtilités invisibles à l’œil nu. Je conseille. Nous avons été à Pompei de Naples par nous-même, c’est vraiment facile et pas cher avec le Circumvesuviana, pas forcément utile de prendre un tour complet, mais un guide sur place, oui !

Imposible visitar Pompeya sin guía
Hicimos el tour con Maria Laura, y fue una experiencia magnífica Habla un español excelente, y uno percibe la pasión que siente por lo que hace y por la historia que nos cuenta y transmite. Sin duda, Pompeya es tan inmensa y esconde tanta historia y curiosidades tras de sí, que después de hacer un visita guiada, me resulta impensable visitar el lugar sin alguien que te oriente y explique todo. Y Maria Laura es la persona ideal para ella. ¡¡Cualquier cosa que le preguntes, podrá contestarla!! Es una gran profesional, nos ha gustado mucho la experiencia. Y una de las mayores ventajas que encontramos, es que a ella no le gusta seguir las corrientes de turistas, sino que busca siempre recorridos alternativos más despejados para que podamos disfrutar de las historias y las ruinas/estancias más ampliamente, sin los típicos aglutinamientos de turistas. Al final lo vemos todo igual que los demás, pero ella conoce los trucos para ir más relajados y a nuestras anchas.

fabulous Pompeii with Diego
We went on the Pompeii guided tour and our tour guide was Diego. We absolutely loved the tour and how he explained the story of Pompeii in an interesting and expert way. Would definitely recommend to anyone, not a second of the tour was boring or exhausting!
olja | Family (teens)
After a small initial issue with the organization (this is why I give 4 starts) we were in the hands of Paola. She was a very qualified and interesting guide, showing lot of hystorical and fun facts about Pompei and its own citizen. Very appreciated!
Debora | Couples
Diego ottima guida
Tour con la guida di DIEGO, un archeologo appassionato, preparato e molto bravo a spiegare tutto ciò che può interessare ai turisti di una preziosa città quale è Pompei. Ottima esperienza.
David | Family (young children)
Excellent tour with Antonio. This was my second tour of Pompeii and by far the most interesting. Antonio’s wealth of knowledge was incredible and, because the members of our group had many questions, he took the time to answer them by taking us to the relevant areas. Antonio was lively and engaging and kept our interest for a whole 3 hours (tour should have been 2 hours). His knowledge of Pompeii was extensive. Organisation from introductions to farewells was brilliant and latecomers were escorted to join us by another member of Askos staff.
Beverley Cheyne | Couples
Excellent tour in Pompeii
Very interesting tour. The tour was made all greater by excellent tour guide Paolo Gardelli which took the group to the next level with his enthusiastic explanations and excellent verbal communication. Thanks to Paolo the trip totally exceeded our expectations on this subject. Seeing Pompeii through the eye of an archeologist is a must I believe.
Stefán Hallur | Couples

Ourania | Couples
Esperienza da ripetere! La nostra fuida è stata Giulia, un’archeologa spumeggiante, fiera napoletana e la piú alta di Pompei!! Ci ha accompagnati in un tour non solo alla scoperta dei luoghi, ma anche dela storia e degli usi e costumi dell’epoca, lasciando sempre spazio alle curiosità, alle domande e ad una battuta. Le ore con lei sono volate e non ne avevamo abbastanza, perché non è una semplice guida turistica, ma una studiosa preparata e professionale che ci ha conquistato con la sua passione! Consiglio vivamente questo tour che non vedo l’ora di poter ripetere con lei per conoscere ancora meglio i meravigliosi scavi di Pompei!

Pompéi 13 avril à 9h30 avec NELLO
Nous avons fait la visite de Pompéi le 13 avril à 9h30 en Français avec Nello Di Maio.
La visite fut géniale et Nello fut parfait tant par ses connaissances que par sa façon de nous faire partager sa passion d’archéologue. Nous avons aimé le fait de transposer la vie de l’époque à aujourd’hui. Nous avons pu poser toutes les questions et notamment les enfants qui ont été ravis car il y avait toujours une réponse appropriée.
Merci beaucoup Nello pour cette superbe visite.
C’est une note de 5/5 , 5 Stars ++++++ -)

Pompei tour with Paolo
It was a privilege to be be on this tour and learn from someone so knowledgeable. Would give more stars if we could. Highly recommend.

I loved this tour!
Great tour of Pompei with Antonio. The site is incredible, huge, and can only be truly understood with the help of a guide. Antonio was very knowledgeable, shared a lot of information, took us to many different places of the site and he spent much more time than the agreed 2 hours with us! This was a fantastic experience.

Merci Nello !
Nous avons fait la première visite de deux heures du 13/04/2022. L’excellent Nello a su nous captiver, nous instruire et nous faire rire ! Merci a lui pour ces deux heures de visite !

Excelente tour y guía en Pompeya
Tour muy completo para las 2hs de duración. Quedamos muy contentos con Diego nuestro guía que hablaba muy bien español y demostraba tener mucho conocimiento sobre el parque, siempre atento a que estuviéramos todos y muy simpático.

Great guide Paolo
Great tour with very knowledgeable guide Paolo. Thanks!
Margot van Veelen | Couples
Money well spent - thoroughly recommended!
Really excellent guided tour with Paolo as our guide. He was very informative and communicative, and it was a real pleasure to be in the hands of an expert. I think it would have been a bit overwhelming to visit Pompeii without a guide, as the site is huge – we felt it was money very well spent, and got a lot out of it. The communications and organisation by Askos were also excellent. Recommended!
Jane | Family (teens)
Maria Laura was a great guide. Her explanation on Pompei’s was so intersting as well as amusing. The tour lasted the time agreed and everthing was properly organized.
Damian Sintes | Couples
A Star Turn
We had another wonderful experience when we visited Herculaneum under the expert guidance of Luciano Leone. The initial view of the site itself as one enters is astonishing, but it takes a guide of experience and knowledge like Luciano to bring to life what you ate seeing and to help you understand the differences in the catastrophic events that covered both cities creating unique sites of preservation.
Luciano gave us a great welcome and had interesting props and photos that he personally compiled to illustrate his points.
He engaged with our granddaughter amusing her and informing her with a lovely manner.
From our experience of our two tours arranged with Askos I highly recommend them for their great service and their wonderful guides.

Visita guidata per Pompei di durata di 2 ore. Archeologo privato Ivan Triunfo. Un ragazzo giovane e molto preparato. È stato molto disponibile e ha risposto a tutte le nostre domande e richieste. Davvero molto in gamba. Ve lo suggerisco moltissimo fare il tour con la guida

Knowledge, Efficiency, Courtesy, and Fun
Our guide was Paola Vitiello, she was very welcoming and as well as being knowledgeable proved to have a great sense of fun. We are travelling with our 11 year old granddaughter and Paola certainly kept her interested throughout the tour.
I visited Pompeii with my mother previously, we didn’t have a guide, and I must say that having a guide, especially one like Paola, makes all the difference. Pompeii came to life under Paola’s expert guidance.
Our whole experience with Askos tours from booking through to our arrivederci with Paola was a model of efficiency and courtesy.
We highly recommend Askos and Paola.

An Experience We Will Remember for a Lifetime
If you are visiting Pompeii, you likely have certain expectations on what you will find there based on what you know (ancient city destroyed by a volcano long ago). At least, that was true for my wife and I. What we actually experienced on this tour will stay with us forever – far more than what we expected. Our guide, Michele Maria Lamberti, took us through the town explaining every shop and home, pointing out fascinating aspects and truly helping us understand the day to day life of the people who lived nearly 2,000 years ago. Words simply cannot explain how it felt to be walking in these ruins, and the tragedy that befell these people. This is one of those places that everyone should visit in their lifetime, and our guide was a tremendous asset to this memorable experience.
Joel Hengstler | Family (young children)
Private tour of Santa Maria Vetere Capua
Private 2 person tour of the amphiteater of Santa Maria Vetere Capua and Archeological Museum with Archeologist Michele Maria Lamberti. Excellent guide and very competent in his knowledge. Michele’s explanations were very thorough and interesting. Worth the time and money. Easy to book and pay. Will request again for another tour.
Patsy | Couples
Very interesting excursion, well organized, especially thanks to the competence and passion of the guide Maria Laura. More of two hours of full immersion of ancient Pompei

Nous avons passé un excellent moment avec Francesco qui nous a permis de comprendre le fonctionnement et l organisation de la ville de Pompéi.

Merci à Francesco pour sa gentillesse et son professionnalisme.

Excellent tour of Pompeii by Giulia
We had a really informative tour of Pompeii by Giulia, our guide, who was extremely knowledgeable and entertaining and made the whole site come alive. She was full of energy and carried on well beyond the allotted time. Thank you, Giulia.
Allan Anderson | Couples
My daughter (teen) and I travelled to Pompeii from Rome for the day to join this tour. We got lost as we ended up at the wrong entrance (there are 3 entrances, make sure you get the right one!). We were very grateful that Askos was really kind and contacted us to guide us to the right one. 10/10 for that. Our guide, Michael was great and very knowledgeable. We learned lots. Very enjoyable. I probably won’t recommend for really young kids, but teens and adults, definitely. Wear comfy good shoes as walking on the cobbled pathways can be tricky at times. There is a lot of walking but we had a fantastic time being immersed in Pompeii, especially with a great guide. We joined the afternoon tour and had an extra hour after the tour to explore the rest of the park ourselves. Highly recommend.
Kim | Family (teens)
Pompeii is huge - book a guided tour
We were delighted with Askos and this tour. We chose the small group tour (10 people in our group) because we wanted to make the most of our time in Pompeii. It’s a very big site and it would be easy to glance at the ruins without understanding anything about the civilisation that existed before the devastating volcanic eruption. Our guide was Michele, an archaeologist with a vast knowledge of the site. He brought the story of the town to life and helped us to appreciate how the people lived, worked and loved from its earliest times. His English was excellent and he regularly invited questions. We were gently guided round the principle sights of Sector 7 & beyond. At the end of the tour, he suggested things that we might want to see on our own. With our new-found knowledge, we really felt that we had made the best of our extra time there. The ground is uneven so it’s important to watch your step and have comfortable footwear. We toured Pompeii in March 2022. We took water with us but nothing to eat so we bought sandwiches in the only place open inside the site. They were surprisingly good and there was even a vegan option! There are few toilet facilities in Pompeii and a comfort break during the tour would have been welcome. The weather was ideal and there were very few people there. A few days later, we met a couple who had visited Pompeii on their own and complained that it was just a lot of ruins that they hadn’t understood. And that’s why you hire a guide…… To sum up, we were delighted with this tour and Michele our guide was fantastic.

Ottimo tour, ottima archeologa
Tour di Pompei con la bravissima Anna che, nonostante il tempo pessimo con diluvio insistente e vento freddo, ha reso la visita interessante ed indimenticabile con semplicità, cortesia, competenza e passione.
Elena | Friends
You are better off with the Audio Guide
The guide was knowledgeable and it shows she loves Pompeii. She provided infinite information.. but the majority of participants were trying to follow the story that was broken…with very little interaction. The weather was horrible and didn’t help but we were there trying to enjoy what we could. I didn’t enjoy the tour, it was a dump of information and the English was a little broken. My 9 years old didn’t understand a word and it was my goal for him to enjoy and learn. mission failed.
Mtraveler | Family (young children)
thank you very much for leaving your contribution!
We are very sorry you didn’t enjoy your experience in Pompeii, but, unfortunately, the weather conditions were extremely bad that day and this probably hindered the success of the tour.
Moreover, the guide you had your tour with, namely Anna, is one of our top guides and we are certain that she, as us, undoubtedly did her best to give you an unforgettable experience despite all the adverse contingencies.
We sincerely hope to have you back as our guest in the future, we look forward to offering you a better experience than you had.

I booked a tour o Pompeii with Askos Tours, and Anna, our tour guide, did not disappoint. She was patient, informative, and obviously passionate about Pompeii and its history. Would highly recommend!

Great tour of Pompeii
We did a guided tour of Pompeii in October 2021 with Michele. Firstly, Askos did a great job at accommodating our needs as were able to change our tour date at the last minute due to other travel changes. They were able to switch our dates with no issues. The tour itself was fantastic. Michele was very easy to understand and extremely knowledgeable. He also gave great tips on where to spend more time after the tour ended.

Perfect introduction to Pompeii
On 2 November my husband and I took a ‘small group tour of Pompeii with an archaeological guide’ led by Antonio. He spoke excellent English, was very informative but also amusing, and always happy to answer questions and expand on ideas. He navigated his way around the site, avoiding the larger crowds, indicating other places we could visit after the end of the tour. In fact, we stayed on for a number of hours afterwards visiting this amazing site. Well worth it!
Maria Rosner | Couples
Outstanding tour. The guide was very informative and gave a TON of information about the site. Strongly recommend.

Pompeii small group tour with an Archaeologist - Great Tour!!
Our tour with Askos and with our tourguide Diego was fantastic! I can highly recommend the tour!
He gave us a very good and comprehensive background of Pompeii and also a good overview of the site. Additionally Diego pointed out several little things that by ourselves we would have not noticed. At the end he gave us tips what in his opinion would be nice to explore by ourselves what was really great and helpful. Additional to the actual tour, also the organisation and customer support of Askos was exceptional, they responded very fast and positive to our inquiries!

Pompéi french tour
Excellent tour of Pompéi site with Alfredo !
We did an amazing tour with Alfredo, lots of informations, all questions welcome and answered. Also he gave us good suggestions to continue the visit by ourselves after the tour.
One comment therefore, but more to the owner of Pompéi site. Please refrain from continue this terrible ‘music’ while people visit the site. It’s awful and with no added value.
The site is amazing enough by himself.
Thanks for this excellent tour !

Hicimos el tour de Pompeya con Maria, una guia extraordinària. Nos teletransporotó a la antigua y a la vez actual Pompeya! Nos transmitió todo su conocimiento de una manera brillante. Gracias a ella le pudimos dar vida a las calles intactas de Pompeya y a ponerle alma a las casas de la época.

Visita guidata con archeologo scavi di pompei
Visita guidata con L’archeologo Michele presso il parco archeologico di Pompei il 31 ottobre 2021.
È stata un’esperienza mistica perchè abbiamo potuto davvero vivere e toccare con mano quello che era la città di Pompei.
Grazie alle bellezze naturali del parco, la descrizione dettagliata e coinvolgente di Michele abbiamo vissuto un’esperienza fantastica.
La sua professionalità è stata la ciliegina sulla torta di questa magnifica giornata.

Sonia | Solo
We had Sergio as our tour guide for Pompeii and he was great! We didn’t continue on to Herculaneum, and I’m glad we didn’t because there was so much more to see! It’s such a big site with so much history you can’t fit it all in. Each tour will be unique based on the tour guide and their interests, and we wanted to see more of the unexcavated or newly excavated parts so we’re glad we got to stick around and check them out!

Guia excelente y visita inolvidable
Hemos hecho la visita guiada de Pompeya en castellano con Maria y sin duda ella ha hecho que la experiencia fuera magnifica e inolvidable! Maria te explica todo con tanta pasion y en tanto detalle, me dejo impresionada su conocimiento tan extenso y aprendi muchisimo con todo lo que compartio. Maria es una guia fantastica y excepcional, y ella en definitiva hizo que mi experiencia fuera excelente en todos los aspectos. Ha sido un acierto total hacer este tour! Muchas gracias Maria!

We did the Pompei tour in Spanish with Ma Luisa and she truly made my experience amazing and unforgettable! Ma Luisa explained everything with so much passion and detail, her vast knowledge amazed me and I learned so much through everything she shared. She is by far an amazing tour guide and I am so happy I had the chance to be in her visit group. This tour was such a great investment and made my visit to Pompei unique and amazing! Thank you Ma Luisa!

Pompeii with Diego
Recently toured Pompeii with Askos. We joined the 2 hr small group tour with Diego as guide. He was by far the most knowledgeable, professional and enthusiastic guide for all of the sites we visited on our trip to Italy. Would highly recommend asking for Diego if your are seeking an interesting and insightful look into Pompeii history.

Ne pas hésiter !
Excellente visite avec Nello. Sa présentation savante et vivante vous plonge au milieu de la vie vie à Pompei il y a deux mille ans. Le site archéologique est fabuleux.

Fantastic afternoon tour of Pompeii
Ana Sorrento was the best guide we could have hoped for on our afternoon tour of Pompeii on 21 September. She was knowledgeable, engaging and funny. She never made us feel rushed and took time at the end of the tour to answer any remaining questions. I’d highly recommend a tour with her – absolutely fantastic! Thanks again for the wonderful experience!

Absolutely loved yesterday’s tour of Pompeii and Herculaneum. Both our driver Federico and our guide, Michaelo we’re awesome, knowledgeable, and timely. The train trip from Rome worked perfectly. The only thing I would suggest is to allow time to see the small museum and visit the gift shop at Pompeii. Thank you!
Traci Snow | Solo
Very interesting guided tour
Michele was a great guide! We learned all about life in Pompeii and it’s history. He helped us to imagine what the city might have looked like and what happened on that tragic day in October. I would highly recommend this tour. It provides a highlight of Pompeii (the place is huge) and at the end our guide gave us info on where it might be interesting to explore further. Wear comfortable shoes, sunscreen and bring a water bottle. Enjoy!

Visite guidé de Pompéi
Incroyable visite de Pompéi !!
Avec notre guide Francesco très sympa, qui parle super bien français et qui est véritablement passionné !
Il nous a emmenés dans les endroits incontournables du site et nous a réellement fait voyager dans le temps durant ces deux heures.
Il connaît bien son sujet et partage des anecdotes réellement interessantes.
Si vous êtes comme moi et que vous connaissez le sujet de loin, je recommande vivement de faire la visite avec un guide, car on y va, c’est cool mais on sait pas ce qu’on regarde et on visite seulement pour visiter.
Je recommande vivement cette visite guidé. Le prix en vaut la peine.

Pompeii small group tour with an Archaeologist (French)
What a wonderful time! Our guide Nello provided us with many pieces of information about the building of the city, its history, how people used to live (with many funny anecdotes), and his work as an archeologist. I highly recommend booking this tour (of course 2hours is’nt enough to see everything the amazing city of Pompei has to offer, but it’s a very good start).
Many thanks to the team, and a special shout out to Nello, our wonderful guide!

Narrazione appassionata ed interessante
Michele ci ha guidato per le meraviglie di Pompei con il giusto grado di approfondimento senza risultare pedante e dando il giusto spazio ad aneddoti e curiosita’ rendendo la visita adatta anche ai ragazzi e facendo in modo che le 2 ore passassero anche troppo velocemente (e in realta’ la visita e’ durata anche qualche minuto in piu’ delle due ore pianificate per la visita).
Esperienza sicuramente da consigliare per una visita consapevole di Pompei.
Massimiliano Guidi | Family (teens)
We can highly recommend this guided tour. Our tour guide Alfredo provided us with a lot of interesting information -much of it was new to us although we had been to pompeii before- and showed us a variety of buildings. He provided a relaxed atmosphere with a few jokes and was very friendly. It was also clear that he knew what he was talking about, he seemed very competent and professional. We booked the tour in German and although he was a local and it was not his first language, his German was perfect. The tour lastet two hours which was the perfect lengths. Long enough to take a look at many different things but also not too long to get loose concentration. After the tour he gave us some additional tipps what else to see in pompeii. The tour started at nine, which was nice because since we went in the middle of August it got very hot later during the day.
Vera | Family (teens)
Pompei guided tour
Pompei is enormous, Sergio, the guide, showed us a few nice places he selected, it was August, hot and crowded, he avoided us queuing, we booked the Vesuvius climb for that same afternoon (marvellous experience), but that was a mistake, we left the site after the 2 hours guided tours and there was still so much to see, it was a pity, I recommend tourists to book both trips but not on the same day, you need still so much time to visit the site after the guided tour

Abbiamo fatto la visita con Eduardo, ed è stata un’esperienza ottima! Lui è bravissimo, molto preparato e comunicativo. È riuscito a mostrarci tutti i luoghi salienti facendoci respirare l’aria del tempo, preservandoci dal caldo afoso e facendo rispettare la fila a visitatori esterni al gruppo un po’ troppo “furbetti”… Nostro figlio, di dieci anni, è stato molto coinvolto ed ha apprezzato molto l’avventura.

Pompeii group tour
Diego was charming, knowledgeable, and made Pompeii truly understandable. A fabulous way to tour Pompeii.
While the group (17-20) was much larger than I anticipated (to Americans, a small group is a dozen or fewer), the use of headsets
was perfect — no one had to worry about missing what Diego said and we didn’t seem rushed or crowded.

Book in trust, you’ll spend a nice time
Great tour with our French Guide. It was very hot this August day when we arrived so happy organisation was good, start time was earlyish (9.30) and tour was 2hours. We learned a lot and really enjoyed it. We finished by the little museum to cool down. It was super interesting and a short visit. So happy we chose to go there ! I recommend.
My teenagers enjoyed the visit and the guide spoke good French and was very nice,

Fantastic tour of Pompeii
Our tour through Pompeii with Paolo was fantastic. He is amazingly knowledgeable and friendly. You can tell he’s truly passionate about the history of these ancient cities. Highly recommend for anyone visiting Pompeii. I would also recommend to go at an earlier time, the tour won’t cover the entire site as it’s huge so you’ll want to set aside time to walk around yourself as well.

Very well organized tour! The staff is very friendly, efficient and though relaxed. We had booked a guided tour for our Austrian group of friends and families (members aged 14 to 55) and were thrilled by our guide, archaeologist SERGIO, who was very friendly, competent and extraordinarily well-versed, and infected us with his enthusiasm. Despite the heat and the limitations due to Covid we all enjoyed the tour through the impressive city of Pompeji. We really recommend the Askos-Organisation!

Biggest small group ever
Nice tour, with a very good and quite funny tour guide. Only be aware that the definition of “small group” may not fit your conception of small. We were a group of 15. And our “archeologist” was of course a regular tour guide. But he knew his stuff.

Understanding Pompei and its world
Visiting Pompei with the archaeologist Antonio was a perfect way to enter the spirit of the town from its foundation to the eruption of Vesuvio, and understand the connection the people living here had within the Roman empire and with people of different parts of the Mediterranean.

Molto interessante! Consigliato!!
Sono molto soddisfatta di questa esperienza! Ho visitato la città romana del 79 d.C. gustando tutto il suo fascino grazie al racconto della guida che ci ha accompagnato per 2 ore lungo le vie e le piazze di Pompei, facendoci tornare per un giorno nell’antico impero romano. Peccato che non siamo potuti entrare in alcuni ambienti della città come il piccolo teatro e il bordello a causa delle restrizioni anti-covid ma ne è veramente valsa la pena. Consigliato!

The tour was excellent. Our guide (Michele) was extremely knowledgeable, precise, easy going and passionate about the history, architecture and scientific details . The level of the explanations was just right . It was a pleasure to spend over 2 hours with him .
The staff at the office managing the whattspp went above their normal duties to accommodate my late arrival sending a staff member to wait for me and accompanying me to find my group, I was also able to switch the time of my original reservation. Truly exceptional . Thank you!!!!

My husband and I took the small group tour of Pompeii on June 24, 2021 with Sergio. Pompeii is an amazing place and Sergio was a fantastic tour guide. Sergio is so knowledgeable about explaining everything about Pompeii and he has a great sense of humor. Pompeii is one of the most fascinating places we have ever seen. Askos Tours did an incredible job with organizing this, having Sergio as our tour guide was great, and Askos communicated with us each and every step of the way about the tour. We highly recommend this tour!!! Thank you Sergio and Askos Tour for an incredible day.
