Amazing tour of Pompeii
Oct 2020
We were a group of 4 adults and 4 kids at different ages (8-14) and had an absolutely amazing tour of Pompeii with Stefano! I have to say this was the best tour ever! Stefano is so knowledgeable and he made it so much fun. The kids were glued to his descriptions and explanations and stories! Can highly highly recommend a tour with Stefano or his wife!

Small Group with Excellent Guide
Oct 2019
My wife and I were joined by two other couples (6 total) for a fantastic guided tour with Stefano. While many other guests paraded around the archaeological site in groups of 20 or more, listening to their guide on a radio headset, it felt much more intimate to visit the sites great and small with our knowledgeable and considerate guide. He was willing to customize the tour to see sites within Pompeii that we wanted to see, and had thoughtful answers to all our questions. He also provided excellent advice for things to do near Pompeii (e.g. Vesuvius, Amalfi) after hour tour. I can't imagine a better way to tour Pompeii!

Great private tour with Stefano to the ruins of Pompei.
Stefano packed our tour with all the highlights of this huge city in 2 hours. He eloquently explained Pompei’s ancient history, human interest & architectural insights.

We appreciated his help to navigate the trains to Pompei Scavi from Rome.

Thanks for the wonderful experience Stefano!

semi private tour of Pompeii and private tour of herculaneum
Oct 2019
The tour to Pompeii was as good as advertised. Stefano made sure we were able to see the popular sites whilst not being swamped by bigger groups. He made sure we made good use of our time on site. After Pompeii, we booked to continue to Herculaneum for a private tour of just my husband and myself. Again, Stefano proved to be an excellent guide with plenty of relevant information. At no time during either tour did we feel rushed or that we had missed out on anything. I would recommend this tour to anyone who is looking for a truly small group experience.

Excellent, informative, and hospitable!
Sep 2019
Our guide Paolo, and the owner Stefano, both communicated with me clearly to locate the tour. Paolo was waiting for me with one other couple. The tour started with a lot of information to set the scene. Paolo then guided us expertly through the site and helped us to see things without getting stuck in tourist groups. He told us a compelling narrative as he guided us through the entire site. He asked if he could go over the allotted time in order to show us even more, and we all agreed. He stopped to take photos of us. He also switched between English, Italian, and some French, in order to accommodate all of our needs. Excellent!

Informative, interesting, well-organized tour
Jun 2019
Stefano's informative tour gave us a good overview of the history and main attractions of this huge historical site in two hours. In our small group of 8 we could always hear him clearly in spite of the crowds, ask questions at any time and move together comfortably. His narrative really brought the ruins that we were seeing alive in an thoughtful, relaxed way.

Herculaneum, Pompeii and Capri private tour
Aug 2019 • Couples
Stefano created and guided us on private tours of Herculaneum, Pompeii and Capri. It was perfectly organized with no time wasted in queues. He is knowledgeable and extremely helpful and quickly figured out what appeals to us and adapted the program around our interests. Such a nice guy, you cannot go wrong and he definitely knows what he is doing. If you want an insider's experience look no further!

Great tour guide to bring historical sites to life!
Jul 2019 • Couples
We toured both Pompeii and Herculanium with Stefano who is a geat guide, bringing both historical sites to life. He is fun, informative and great company to be with. We skipped the lines and made the most of our time in both historical sites. The small groups made the tours very interactive so well worth it if you don't like large excursions. We booked Stefano via WhatsApp and he kept us up to date by messages and phone calls then meeting him at the train station in Pompeii. If you are intending to travel by train there are multiple stops and trains are crowded so you might prefer to make alternative arrangements for transport with Stefano.

Fantastic Transport and Guide for a private tour to Pompeii
Jun 2019 • Friends
From India, we as a group of 11 adults, were searching for an interesting tour company for a private tour with a guide to Pompeii. I came across Stefano and Anto Cocoa through their website and wrote to them. It was an excellent experience. The bus was ready at our hotel in Sorrento exactly on time of the date in the morning. Anto was there with her bus driver and took us to Vesuvius and Pompeii.Extremely knowledgeable and enthusiastic she took us to both the sites with her running informative and hilarious commentary. She made all of us sing in Italian language and had a great fun. At the end of the day, not being young like her, we were tired but she wasn't. It was a great fun.
