Private Pompeii and Fascinating Herculaneum
Herculaneum is even better than Pompeii

Great tour. Our guide took us to Herculaneum first which was a terrific decision. We were some of the first people through the gate and felt like we had it all to ourselves. While we enjoyed Pompeii as well, Herculaneum was a totally different experience with much more intact buildings. You could still see elaborate mosaics. It's a smaller site and easier to get around. Pompeii has the casts and buildings that show you how large the city was at the time. It was also fascinating, but it is much larger and much more crowded. Great experience with a very informative, engaging guide. Highly recommend it.
We enjoyed this tour very much!

Our guide was excellent, knowledgeable, and helpful. Suzi has an obvious passion for Pompeii and Herculaneum, and it shows. We saw Herculaneum first and got there early in the day so there were no crowds. These two places are such a wonderful way to experience what ancient Roman life was like. Pompeii did have a lot of visitors, so some areas are crowded, but still fascinating to see. Our guide spoke very good English, and kept us interested for the whole tour. For us, the cost of the "private" tour was definitely worthwhile.

Met at the dock by a chauffeur-driven Mercedes and a very knowledgeable professional tour guide with impeccable English. Fabulous tour of Pompeii, followed by a nice lunch. After lunch we were given a splendid tour of Herculaneum. This was the best excursion of any that we booked during our Mediterranean cruise.

We were very lucky to be the only two customers for this tour. We had a Mercedes limo with driver and a very competent and considerate guide. She adjusted the pace for my wife to keep up with us. It was great to see Pompeii and Herculaneum in the same day and compare the two sites. Guide was very knowledgable and friendly. Other travelers should be so lucky!

Had waited many years to see Pompeii and Herclaneum and Frederica made this excursion worth every bit of the long wait. We felt immersed in the ancient cities and their former inhabitants and were given so many insights into the lives and histories of these Roman citizens. Only a longer day and more than the five hours would have allowed us to see more of the excavated cities. It will have to wait for another visit.
