What people are saying about Pompei

Paolo was absolutely excellent. He is an archeologist who has been (and still is) actively involved in excavations near Pompeii. He was prompt, friendly, and engaging. My 2 daughters, ages 8 and 11, really liked him and learned a lot. He kept s good pace to keep interest high—and also sought out shady spots when he’d stop to tell us about something. Our visit was greatly enriched by Paolo. I walked past other visitors in large groups being strung along—or going it alone without a guide—and felt very glad we chose to use Askos Tours. Even in the hot, walking for almost 3 hours, my girls were nothing but happy and engaged. (And so were the adults in our family: we are 3-generations.) Worth every Euro!

It is a very curious experience, the guide knows a lot about the subject that makes the visit very enjoyable. It is essential to visit this before the park, since once you validate the ticket they do not let you go out again. After 15 minutes of arguing, we managed to get them to let us back in. Those of the Pompeii National Park should include this activity as an optional activity since it greatly enriches the visit to it.

Wonderful experience with a not only prepared but also enthusiastic guide who made us travel to ancient Pompeii through 3D prints and ultra-modern technological projections and fantastic historiographical anecdotes that we would never have known about without his presentation! Highly recommended before visiting the excavations!

Very exciting and prepared the guide who knew how to tell the whole history and the origin of every single corner of Pompeii transporting us into the past ... Truly an expert and passionate guide of the excavations! Absolutely to do this tour again!

It was an interesting experience. Models showed what it was like 2000 years ago. An interactive journey through time. Highly recommended before visiting. So the places were vividly remembered...
