We had an extraordinary three hour tour of Pompeii that was mind-blowing. Learned a ton about ancient Roman history and its influences and links to modern life. Our guide Gaetano Mandfredi was outstanding. If you're booking a private guide, he's the one. Brilliant, engaging super helpful and lots of fun.
What did he charge, and how much of a discount to post your review? He quoted us €820-cash only, for a total of 5 hours for Pompeii and Herculaneum.
Hello Allan ,
Please be honest with yourself and the readers .
Please specify that the cost of 840 euro included private transportation all day 8 hours with pick up and drop off at your hotel + all the admission fees tickets skip the queue to both the archeological sites + private 3 hours tour in Pompeii + 2 hours private tour in Herculaneum + a break for light lunch in between the tours . That’s the total truth.
Kenan, I could not have described the experience better myself!
Our mind blowing tour of Pompei started at our hotel's front door in Rome. Our driver (Leonardo) was part driver, part guide, superb person ... he made the long drive to Pompei pass in mere moments.
At Pompei, Gaetano began our tour from the moment we exchanged pleasantries onward ... a true tour de force!!! It was a world wind of information, delivered with brillance, passion and great humor. Further, as Pompei is a large site, he kept us moving ... but always made time for us to get great photo ops ... Even pointing out special sites along the way.
After we made our way through the site, we had a lovely lunch at a spot across the way. Then our driver brought us down to our hotel in Sorrento.
Start to finish, Gaetano made sure the experience was nothing short of magical!!!
