We loved our tour with Lello. He had a good sense of humor and kept the tour engaging for the full 2.5 hours. We went to many different parts of the archaeological area, and without a guide, it would be difficult to understand life in Pompeii. I've been on many tours, and Lello stands out as one of the better guides. I would highly recommend using him as your tour guide.

Doing a 10 day Italy trip with my daughter, Pompeii was one of the sites we had to see. While I was still home, I booked Pompeii tour with this company (tours of Pompeii with Leo) and Vatican tour with another company (HeadOut Tours) really not knowing what to expect from either one....OMG, what a difference!!!!!!
Vatican tour ended up being one of the worst experiences of our trip. It truly ruined the entire day for us.
This tour, with Salvatore, was simply AMAZING! He was interactiv, knowledgeable, kind, funny.....truly unique experience. He took the time to explain everything and we dod not feel rushed!
If you are looking at this and considering booking any tour with company, all I can honestly say...go for it, you will not regret it!

Lello was a brilliant tour guide, very knowledgeable and passionate. Would definitely recommend taking a tour as it would take a very long time to see every single building in the city but your get to see the main points and more and also have time to wander around after. 3 hours or so is perfect for this tour.

We did the five hour private tour of Pompeii and Herculaneum and it was the best tour we have ever been on! Everything you have read about Lello & Co is true. We felt like such VIPs walking the streets of Pompeii with Lello, as the other tour guides literally bow down to him with respect. For two hours he brought Pompeii to life, and we learned so much about ancient Roman life, the gladiators, brothels, fast food and wine shops, and just daily living. We felt like we were connected to these people as we walked the same streets as they had, 2,000 years ago. Then while we had lunch (the Pompeii café is surprisingly decent for a touristy place), Lello went home and got his car so he could drive us to Herculaneum. We spent a few hours touring Herculaneum, and we were even more blown away by how well everything has been preserved and how intimate Herculaneum was. In researching this tour I wasn’t sure if we should do Pompeii or Herculaneum or both, as some people prefer one over the other, but I’m glad we did both. We preferred Herculaneum but of course Pompeii is the primer, and they work together to tell the story of that fateful day. After our tour Lello drove us back to Pompeii and dropped us at the train station, giving us recommendations for things to do while we waited.

Pompeii is huge – you definitely need a tour for Pompeii and we are so glad that we were with the best tour guide. Herculaneum is more manageable, but Lello brought it to life. We will hopefully return to Naples one day and do more tours with Lello, hopefully visiting the Naples Archeological Museum. Thank you Lello for a day we will never forget!

Lello was amazing! Traveling with 3 granddaughters, we wanted their experience to be educational and memorable. Lello delivered on all counts. Thanks also to our driver Paolo for his great restaurant recommendation in Positano. Fabulous day!
