Anna was a fantastic guide. She was knowledgeable and informative. She knew answers to all of our questions and put up with our other group members gracefully and with patience. I highly recommend booking with Anna.

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!

Great tour with a couple issues
Edward_W

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.

Hello sir, thanks for your review and feedback. we are glad you liked the tour and the guide with our service. we are sorry about the inconvenience you experienced with the bluetooth headset, this new device is provided because it's a new better technology, also related to this period and rules, for better safety and hygienic reasons, instead of the traditional haedsets with earphones inside the ears. Also since you're wearing a hearing aids, this new bluetooth device actually gave you the opportunity to wear it and listen to the guide better than traditionl earphones. With the traditional earphone inside the ear you should have been forced to remove the hearing aids. Thanks for your feedback , we work every day to improve and give the best experience possibile, and we'll keep very much in considaration yours. we hope you to see you next time again in one of our tour. Best regards Askos team

Pompeii is an amazingly huge archeological site that need a guide to give you a good background. Antonia did exactly that, he was so passionate about his work that he requested for more time so that he can cover more. Totally impress with his professionalism.

Pompeii is an amazing place, made more colorful with an Archeologist tour guide!

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!

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
