Mind blowing. Normally I have lots of questions to ask on tours, but Michele is such a good guide and storyteller, I didn't want to interrupt. By the end of the 2-hour tour, it felt like I had to sit down and digest all the information. It was all so insightful and interesting! No questions to ask afterwards. Fantastic tour.

Loved it! I was captivated from start to finish by our guide Michele and all the facts, anecdotes and stories he shared with us. This tour is a fantastic way to start your visit and get all the knowledge and tips needed to enjoy exploring the rest of Pompei on your own. Can't recommend enough!

Happened to book this experience during a rainy day but Ivan really came through and made this experience a pleasurable one. He was incredibly knowledgeable about the ins and outs of Pompeii and gave use background info on everything that made it come to life that much more. It was also nice having the place almost all to ourselves. Highly recommend!

Abbiamo visitato il sito archeologico con la guida di Michele, ci siamo trovati benissimo perché è un archeologo molto preparato, simpatico e disponibile. In generale, visitare un luogo storico così grande e importante necessita di una guida per poterlo capire bene e apprezzare. Anche girare liberamente è molto bello, ma con una guida esperta non ci si ferma alla prima impressione superficiale.

Anna Laura was an excellent guide, very knowledgeable, patient and helpful. She had a lot of insights on things you wouldn't expect about Pompeii. Exceeded what I was expecting by far.

Acabamos de pasar un día maravilloso en Pompei , y gran parte de esta maravillosa experiencia se la debemos a Maria Laura, un guía que mezcla su trabajo con su pasión por la historia. Hace años que viajamos por el mundo con nuestro hijo Enzo ( ahora 13 años). Siempre viajamos por nuestra cuenta, pero somos asiduos de los tours guiados Pompei es uno de esos sitios donde un guía es imprescindible. Si además tienes la suerte de que tu guía sea María Luisa, entonces vivirás uno de esos momentos que merecen la pena, aquellos que recuerdas con los años y que con un poco de suerte cuando Enzo tenga 20-25 años nos dirá,,,," os acordáis de nuestra visita a Pompei..." Gracias María Laura

Sognavo da tempo di visitare gli scavi di Pompei avendoli sempre e solo visti in documentari ho scelto così di affidarmi a una guida essendo la mia prima visita...non avrei immaginato che grazie a una guida fantastica come Anna Sorrento, proprio ieri, quel sogno avrebbe iniziato il suo percorso. Grazie alla sua esperienza e passione ho potuto immaginare come realmente fosse la Pompei di quasi 2000 anni fa seguendo un percorso composto da domus, negozi, i più frequentati luoghi pubblici e anche "quartieri alternativi" della comunque vita di allora. Delle 2 ore pagate credo ci si sia allungati a 2e30 e più considerando soprattutto l'assenza di file ai luoghi più gettonati e dunque di "puro" apprendimento. Che dire vorrei scrivere un poema per ringraziare tutto lo staff di askos tour per la semplice ma assoluta professionalità con la quale gestisce i propri servizi. Un ringraziamento speciale ad Anna che spero legga la recensione e spero vivamente di vedere nuovamente a un mio sicuro prossimo tour (estivo) degli scavi. "Incontriamoci alla fontana del toro"😁 Un grazie di cuore, mi hai incantato. David

The experience of the guide was excellent and really laid the foundation for the rest of the day. We could not give 5 stars for two reasons; 1) The bluetooth headsets were hard to use as they did not attach to the ears very well (especially if you are wearing hearing aids) and the guide's microphone was below his lapel so when he would turn his head the sound would fade and 2) It seemed rushed towards the end of the tour. We are in our late 60's so it was difficult to keep up the last 15 minutes of the tour.

Les rues, les traces des chars, les passages des piétons et, évidemment, les murs peints, la conservations des couleurs et les motifs, toute cette histoire encore si présente, nous ont fortement impressionnés. Notre guide, Nello, parfait francophone et très érudit, a su nous intéresser. Cependant nous aurions préféré passer plus de temps dans les maisons décorées et moins devant l'entrée du site, encore moins devant le temple de Vénus, enlaidi à notre avis, par la statue contemporaine.

Anna Sorrento was a great tour guide. She was a real archeologist, turned tour guide. The ruins are amazing, but a verbal description of the story, culture, history, and excavation of the ruins adds color to the experience. For example, if Anna didn't tell us how to determine the shops from eateries and bakeries (of the time), we wouldn't have known. All around a great tour. It only takes you through the most commonly visited 1/4 of the ruins. Get the morning tour, and stick around all day. Do Vesuvius on another day!

Ivan was awesome. Really enjoyed our tour. He is very knowledgeable and was easily able to answer all of the random questions we threw at him. It was nice to book in advance and be sure we could get in when we wanted, and get an experienced guide. I think he hit the main things we were interested in, but not so much as to lose the attention of our younger kids. I recommend this company and Ivan!

Antonio was a great guide both in terms of knowledge and answering questions and the logistics of guiding. The earphones were good once working properly. Group was bigger than I thought it would be since the tour cost more than others

Anna is an amazing guide. She is funny and has a great sense of humor. She is also very passionate about her work around Pompeii. We had a great time with her during the tour. We actually ended up spending more than 2 hrs, as she wanted us to show the highlights and not leave anything behind. Pompeii is an amazing site, massive and impossible to see in a few hrs. After our tour we saw a few more sites that Anna had recommended. Overall a great experience, highly recommended. We will be back again.

Ivan was awesome! He was well informed on the entire park, and he was able to answer every question the group had for him. Ivan was also very welcoming and entertaining through out the experience. He checked on sites that were under excavation to see if they were open, and found out one of the sites had just opened.
