Anna Sorrento has guided us through the magnificent Ancient Pompeii with high level competencies and with an extraordinary passion. So much grateful to her, it has been a very nice travelling experience in the very old time. Suggested.

As an archaeologist, Emiliano was able to offer more insights into Pompeii than other guides, pointing out details that would otherwise go unobserved and consequently throwing light on life in this fascinating town prior to 79AD. He was also very sensitive towards the group's needs as this was a group of seniors. He found a wheelchair to help one of the ladies and allowed us to keep it all week which facilitated visits to other sites. He couldn't have been kinder so all in all this was an excellent and enlightening experience. Highly recommended.

We did a 2 hour tour of Pompeii with Diego. We’d been to the site the day before so had some idea of what to expect. The tour was really good: interesting, good pace and we saw quite a few different places. Diego was knowledgeable, entertaining and spoke excellent English.

We had a very informative and friendly guide in Antonio. He knew the Pompeii site intimately and tried to teach us key points, so that we could decipher the site for ourselves (e.g. the difference between the front of a house and the front of a shop). Perhaps however we spent too long on some of these aspects, as we only managed to get to the Fugitives right at the very end (after the tour had technically finished). Antonio was very generous with his time and continued after the tour had finished, showing some additional aspects. For myself, I was slightly disappointed not to see more mosaic work in Pompeii, but perhaps this is all inside a museum? All in all, well organised (the guide headsets were a great idea) easy to find and well worth it

Our tour guide was Antonio, he really was excellent. Having done quite a few guided tours now, I find the difference between average and brilliant tours is the guides enthusiasm for what they are talking about. This is where Antonio definitely excels. He is extremely passionate about Pompeii. He gives you great insight into all of the intricate details of Pompeii and really allows you to paint a picture of what it would have been like in your mind.
It is very easy to meet him outside the main entrance which is right next to the train station. He also ends the tour in the middle which makes it very easy to find your way back to the exit and to the station. I would highly recommend this tour.

The love that our guide Paola had for the area made this an experience to remember. We booked a tour that began at 16.30 (which is best to avoid the heat and the crowds) via Airbnb. There were only 6 of us in the group by chance and Paola impressed all of us with her detailed knowledge of the area, her affability and her obvious love for the subject matter. If you are looking for a tour with some personality, instead of a bored guide trying to get you through as quickly as possible, this is the tour for you!

Sergio was an excellent guide! Very informative and kind, and he took the time to answer our questions. The tour was a good length, and the group was small enough that we could often hear Sergio without the need for the little speaker.

We had a wonderful trip to Italy planned for the beginning of May 2020, but then you know what happened. We had dozens of reservations to cancel and keep track of the refunds, etc. In my dealings with Askos and especially Paolo, things could not have gone smoother! Paolo was incredibly responsive and attentive and I got my refund quickly! I am still waiting - over 60 days later - for my refund from The Roman Guy!!! The refund from Askos was in my bank over 6 weeks ago!

I would not hesitate to book ALL of my excursions with Askos when we finally get to rebook our trip!
