We used this company to have a private tour of Herculaneum and Pompeii for the day back in June. It was definitely the best way to ensure you can efficiently do both sites in one day, as the guide knows exactly where to take you so that you see the highlights and don't waste time. Our guide met us at the train station in the morning, took us around Herculaneum, came with us on the train to Pompeii station, showed us a great place for lunch, and then we continued our tour of Pompeii. All day she gave us the history, answered questions and went at our pace (it was a very hot day). I'd highly recommend using this guide.

Lucia is extraordinary. She is incredibly responsive and communicative.....her English is impeccable. She tailored a tour of Pompeii and Herculaneum for me and my 18yo daughter who studied ancient Rome for her final year at school.... Lucia even knew what my daughter had covered in her syllabus and adapted the tour accordingly. She provided detailed instructions on how to get to Herculaneum where she greeted us inside the station. Her vast knowledge and passion made for the most fascinating tour that exceeded our expectations. Can't recommend highly enough.

The tour took most of the day but we only spent some 3 hours at Pompeii itself which was more than sufficient to see the archeological remains and get a good idea of how the people lived and worked. Very interesting and to be recommended especially with a good guide.

Lucia's tour brought Pompeii to life for us! She met us at the Pompeii Scavi station and took us on a walking tour of the highlights - as much as we could fit into two hours (we had no idea Pompeii is so big!). Lucia is so incredibly knowledgeable, it's obvious that Pompeii is her passion. We highly recommend her tour. Be sure to wear comfortable shoes for walking on cobblestones, bring a hat, water, sunscreen and perhaps a snack. It gets hot, there is very little shade and the one cafe is very crowded.

We were initially unsure whether or not we wanted a guide for our visit to Pompeii. After a little bit of research we stumbled across Lucia and we are very happy to have done so. We spent the first 2 hours being guided through some key sights. Lucia was able to provide us with a lot of information. Before starting our trip our knowledge was limited to basic teachings from school but we ended up with a detailed knowledge of daily Roman life, as well as an understanding of the history of the excavations at the sight. Previously seeing some of the treasures at the archaeology museum in Naples, it was fantastic to see their origin so this would be recommended. We had 2 hours of entertainment and education with Lucia. Before Lucia departed she advised us on some further points of interest. 4 hours later we left Pompeii thrilled but very worn out. Lucia was warm, friendly and engaging and we highly recommend her to anyone thinking of treating themself to a personal guide.
