  • A private tour means direct access to your guide for questions
  • Expand your knowledge of ancient Pompeii through guide commentary
What to expect
  • On August 24 in the year AD 79—nearly 2,000 years ago—the volcano Mt. Vesuvius began erupting. It blanked the nearby town of Pompeii, freezing the 20,000 denizens with its ash and molten lava, thus perfectly preserving this ancient Roman city. On this guided walking tour, you can see the best that the archaeological site has to offer. Meet your guide and prepare to be dazzled by this UNESCO World Heritage Site. If there’s something in particular you’d like to see, tell your guide so he or she can tailor the tour to your liking. If not, there’s plenty of things to be wowed by. See the city walls and the Porta Marina gate that was once the entryway to the harbor of Pompeii. Explore the ancient theater where performances were regularly given. Gawk at what once was a Roman version of a ‘fast food’ restaurant, where vast vases still stand that were used for storing food. Stop at the Forum and learn about the political system in Pompeii and what the Forum was used for. Walk down the basalt-laden streets and squares of the city. See the blocks that provided stepping-stones across the often-flooded and sewage-filled streets; and view must-sees such as the Temple of Apollo, the Macellum market, and the public weighing scales. And, intriguingly, see the casts of victims who were immediately frozen by the volcanic eruption. Stop by the thermal baths, a popular pastime in ancient Roman times. And even visit an old brothel, also a much-enjoyed proclivity among Roman men. Your tour ends at the original starting point, when you say goodbye to your guide. Family Tour: Have kids in tow? Opt for the family tour, which intrigues children, thanks to games, puzzles and a map designed specifically for children. Your guide also tailors the route in a way that is geared towards youngsters. It’s a truly engaging way for them to discover the city and learn about life here long ago. The family tour ends at the starting point when you bid farewell to your guide.

    Pompeii Archaeological Park
    Stop: 2 hours - Admission excluded
    Your personal knowledgeable guide will show the highlights of Pompeii: the Forum, the Bath-House, the shops and the streets, the fantastic private homes, and more! You are going to be introduced to the history of the eruption of Mount Vesuvius that buried Pompeii 2000 years ago. You will take great pictures of colorful wall-paintings and floor-mosaics. You will enter daily life in ancient Pompeii and discover how advanced Romans were! If you have children from 6 to 11 years old, we recommend the additional family option. The Pompeii for kids tour will make it both an entertaining and learning experience for all the family. You will still visit all the highlights of Pompeii, but this option includes activities, games, a special map with stickers, and a specifically trained tour guide. Please be aware that admission fees are not included, however our certified guides have access to a fast-track line. In other words, we can buy tickets for you quickly on the spot.

Excellent private tour - recommend!
Guisy spoke excellent English and knew so many details about Pompeii and its excavation. She answered every question we had and really brought to life Pompeii as an ancient bustling Roman port town.

The best way to see Pompeii!
Our group of six adults loved our experience touring Pompeii with Natalia! Natalia was so knowledgeable, informative, professional, fun and caring to our needs as she guided us through Pompeii. We even booked the tour very last minute and Natalia (who has incredibly, clear English) and the company were so accommodating. The tour was top notch and very affordable for the incredible quality! I highly recommend booking this tour- you won’t be disappointed!

Our guide Natalia was wonderful! It was a super hot day (about 110) and she made sure we got to see all of the sites. She made sure our children were a part of the tour. She was so helpful and even called our driver to meet us at the end of the tour. I would HIGHLY recommend!

Excellent tour guide
Sep. 2019
Fabrizio is without a doubt an excellent tour guide. His English is very clear which can sometimes be a challenge with other guides. We had somewhat of a limited time period with him due to schedule conflicts but he did the best he could to make up for the lost time. We could tell that he was still very interested in the subject matter even after having given so many tours in the past. He was very energetic and gave us some suggestions for things to do after the tour.

Laura was terrific!
Our tour guide Laura was perfect for our 7, 10, and 12 year old children. She was not too juvenile for the oldest and kept the youngest engaged.

She kept the kids away from the more ‘adult’ parts of the ruins but let the adults know how to get there if we wanted to and offered to play games with the kids.

Lots of knowledge - great English - great experience.

The Best Private Tour
Sep. 2019
Francesco our tour guide was fantastic. He gave us the most efficient and educational tour of Pompei. He knew all the highlights and how to get to them. He was a master at navigating us around the crowds. We were a party of 4. He picked us up and delivered us back to our Pompei Car Service driver. A highlight of our Italian Holiday that we will not soon forget.

Maria was our tour guide, she was on time, spoke excellent English and knew everything about the Pompeii ruins. It was a hot day, and she was ever mindful about the heat and finding shady places to talk as we walked. We all learned so much from her! I highly recommend her and this tour, it was excellent.
