Paolo was absolutely excellent. He is an archeologist who has been (and still is) actively involved in excavations near Pompeii. He was prompt, friendly, and engaging. My 2 daughters, ages 8 and 11, really liked him and learned a lot. He kept s good pace to keep interest high—and also sought out shady spots when he’d stop to tell us about something. Our visit was greatly enriched by Paolo. I walked past other visitors in large groups being strung along—or going it alone without a guide—and felt very glad we chose to use Askos Tours. Even in the hot, walking for almost 3 hours, my girls were nothing but happy and engaged. (And so were the adults in our family: we are 3-generations.) Worth every Euro!
We were able to enjoy the stay very much through the tour of Fiorella and received a lot of valuable information about Pompei from her. A tour of Pompei is recommended in order to be able to optimally understand the history and daily life in Pompei. Tip: Be sure to go in the morning. We were there at 9:00 a.m. Pompei was still easy to visit and only a few visitors were there at this time. From around 10:30 a.m. the city fills up with people and it is difficult to move forward (especially when groups of cruise ships visit the ruins).
A great fun and interesting way to bring Pompeii back to life before our eyes! A 2 hour visit, punctuated by the viewing of mini video in virtual reality. The audio guide in French is well explained and always linked to a video. Well done and well paced, the 2 hours go by at full speed. I highly recommend if you can afford to take an official guide with this tour and not the assistant, because some details escaped us despite everything.
The guide entertained the children in a wonderful way and was attentive to every need, in the end even gave them magnets and a book about Pompeii
Guide (Roberta) very prepared and very good with children (7 and 11 years old). It is worth the expense
