My wife and I were joined by two other families 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!

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!

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.

Stefano was amazing! I was really worried because there were so many options for tours in Pompeii. I did as much research as I could and I picked this one. So glad I did. I was a few minutes late and he was standing there with my name on a sign, which was very helpful. Very knowledgeable. Super polite, it was a small group so we all got to ask questions and hear everything. I highly recommend.

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!

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.

We really enjoyed our tour of Pompeii with Antonietta. She was so knowledgeable and funny. We definitely wouldn't have had the same experience if we had toured the site alone, there were so many small details we would have missed. After the tour we felt more prepared to explore alone, and stayed on site for a further three hours! I would like to thank Antonietta especially for her advice regarding travel in the days preceding the tour. Real attention to detail which helped us enormously. Many thanks again!

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!

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.

Written by Bill - UK on 26/06/2019 (Trip Advisor)

Highly recommended. Saw and learned more than we ever would have on our own Met with Stefan (on time) and as arranged in Piazza del Gesù and then walked through the historical centre for 3 hours or so. The trip included well known as well as off the beaten track points of interest and included an espresso like I’d never had before - very thick, sweet and creamy. Also strolled down the street where they make presepe, which I hadn’t heard of before. In the afternoon took the the express train to Pompei, again finding less visited sites and curiosities like the absolutely amazing frescoes of the Villa Misteri. Not cheap but well worth it for the wealth of local and art/historical knowledge that Stefano (he studied art history at the university of Naples) and Antoinetta have. Also useful to have a licensed guide to get straight to the front of the ticket question (and who is also good company.)

Our tour guide is stephano. He speaks excellent English, and he is VERY knowledgable about Pompeii history. He gave us lots of fun stories about life 600bc and showed us all the highlight spots/building. The Pompeii ruin layouts around a very large area. I can't imagine the trip without his guide. Highly recommend!

Fantastic Transport and Guide for a private tour to Pompeii 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.

We had a fantastic time on this tour! Our guide Lucrezia was very informative and we learned a lot, definitely giving us a greater appreciation for what we were seeing than we would have had going around by ourselves. We definitely appreciated being in a semi-private group that allowed us to have a more personal experience and ask more questions, and 2 hours was the perfect length for a tour and still gave us time to do some exploring by ourselves once the tour had finished. It was a great tour and really enhanced the experience of visiting Pompeii and all its history.

Wonderful private tour A+! Stefano was the best tour guide through Herculaneum. He was knowledgeable, friendly, and very funny! What a treat.

Antoinetta was an exceptional guide. We saw all of the best of Pompeii, and definitely would have been wondering aimlessly without her. The two hour tour was enough time to see the highlights, and then spend another hour or so doing our own exploring (I recommend exiting at the large amphitheater, depending on where you came in.) She spoke very good English, was very friendly, funny and informative. I definitely recommend a guided tour of Pompeii!

I wanted to visit pompeii during my Italy trip but my family was going along because I wanted to. I found Stephano and Antonietta of Semi private tours online and booked my pvt family tour. What I liked was that they were constantly in touch with us from the time I landed. So I knew I could rely on them. Stephano gave us a detailed tour with lots of interactive questions with my teens. My family came back convinced that pompeii was a MUST SEE and guys you must book this tour or you won’t understand the life and the times that existed in Pompeii. Thanks Stephano

Stefano is an excellent guide and Pompeii is just breathtaking. So much history, that Stefano explained us perfectly. The tour was 2h, Stefano came to pick us up at the train station, and in 5 minutes we were inside, without doing the line. Stefano showed us the most important parts and gave us more recommendations if we wanted to see something more. Totally recommended, next time around Naples we plan to do another tour with him. Keep going like this, best of luck. Fabrizio

Stefano & Antonetta are incredibly good tour guides. Stefano emailed me frequently, as we took an Italia Rail train from Rome. The times and local trains were tricky, we wouldn't have made it without his guidance! Anyonetta's tour was fabulous. Her knowledge of all things Pompei surpassed other guides, and her sense of humor was an added bonus! I'll never forget her encouraging me to sing in the amphitheater. She asked our tour if anyone wanted to test the perfect acoustics. I sang the Messiah at the bottom dead-center, and it's a lifetime memory. Thanks Antonetta for such a superb tour, worth every cent!

Antonietta met us at the train station & was outstanding!!! We wanted a short tour for 4 of us (2 hours) as we went on the way from airport to our hotel in Sorrento (taxi kept our luggage & waited) as we did not want to spend 1/2 a day to do this tour. Advantage is we could go at our own pace. Antonietta showed us the highlights & was very informative, no headsets & we asked many questions along the way. She also spoke with our driver on the phone once he picked us up at the airport & called him to let him know when we were done & where to meet. Stefano (Antonietta's husband) made this very easy to book & was always prompt on answering all of my emails. I also booked Stefano for a group of 8 friends a week earlier, from the cruise ship, for a 2 1/2 tour & then they did the Amalfi Coast. Everyone Loved IT!!!!!!!!!!! Absolutely the best way to see Pompeii!

We took a semi private tour with Antonietta and it was the highlight of our trip! She was waiting for us once we arrived via train. The tour was our family of three (including a teenager) and another family of four with two small children. Antonietta was very knowledgeable, engaging and interactive.

We learned a lot from him and he even corrected some information we had been given during our Colosseum tour in Rome. His english is perfect and he’s easy to understand. Being in a small group allowed us to visit the site more easily and we also didn’t feel rushed. It was a very informative and relaxing experience. Stefano was also kind enough to help me out when we had a mishap with the train. I hear he also does tours in Capri and elsewhere in the area. I’ll be back!! Do it! You won’t be disappointed.

Fantastic We did this tour with Stefano and were so impressed. Firstly, his communication was excellent and he helped work out the best way for us to get to Pompeii with a 4 year old in tow, and then arranged a car transfer for us. On a hot day, this made everything hassle free. Pompeii is huge, so to have the knowledge of a guide is a huge plus. We spent two hours looking at the main sites, not wasting time looking at well streets of ruins and not knowing exactly the significance of what you’ve seen. I have been to Pompeii twice. Once when I was younger with Contiki where we had a large group and again 10 years ago doing a self tour with an audio guide. I learned so much more this time around. Keeping the tour to the main areas was important as we had our 4 year old with us who was mainly ok in the carrier/backpack we had, but any longer would have been difficult. The small group concept is excellent. I think we had about 8 of us which made it very personal yet affordable. Questions were encouraged. Do yourself a favor and include this tour in your plans for Pompeii - but book in advance to avoid disappointment. This is a small family run business.

“Simply fantastic!” Our guide, Anto, was amazing! She contacted us via Whatsapp a few hours before the tour, and gave us details about where she was standing at our meeting point. We did not have to wait in any lines. We were a small, cozy group of 8, which made the whole tour much better, as it is easier to hear what the guide says, and ask questions, compared to a bigger group. Our guide, Anto, had a lot of knowledge about Pompeii, and could answer all of our questions. She was also very patient, as someone in the group were older, and gave us time to use the restroom and take pictures. She also gave us the opportunity to change the tour a bit, in case there were any important things we wanted to see during the tour. Anto was very attentative to each and everyone of us, making sure that we were all happy and felt included. We absolutely recommend this tour to everyone.

“Very special visit to Pompeii” We took the tour on 23rd June with Antonietta and she was marvelous. She took us to approximately 15 different places in Pompeii including Terme Stabiane and Lupanare and gave us real insight about the way of life back then. She didn't just give us text book information but she explained why and how the thing are like that back then. She answered our questions meticulously and she herself sometimes asked questions to push the group into critical thinking before explaining the answer.

“the best formula to visit Pompeï” Very interesting that he guides only small groups. When we were on the site and saw groups of about 20 persons or more, we really felt lucky. As you can easily ask some extra information makes the tour even more interesting. Stefano did show us the most interesting places. That was sufficient because the place is too big to see it all. That's already one reason to choose for “semi-private tours” from Stefano & Antonietta. Another one is Stefano himself. He is very flexible and knows really everything about the life as it used to be in Pompei. We came by car, but due to a traffic jam we were too late. Since we could reach him by phone we were so lucky that he waited for us to start the tour. Sincerely thanks Stefano and the rest of the group. This company is worth to be discovered.

He was on time and had our name on a sign when we met. He gave good suggestions of things to see after the official tour. Stefano did a great job. He and his wife are doing this as a business, specializing in small groups of 6 or less. So you get the care of a personal trip without the hassle of a big group. No flag no headphones.

We were very lucky to book the semi private tour with this company and when we arrived at the train station in Pompeii we were warmly greeted by Stephano What a great tour guide he is full of knowledge and with a great sense of humour and the 4pm tour was perfect as it was cooler and less crowded We would highly recommend Stephano for his factual information and his perfect English: this tour was definitely the only way to visit such an amazing city and great value as it includes the entrance fee

I would highly recommend this tour with Stephano who gave us an excellent tour of Pompeii. As a group of 7 friends, this was so much better than the other huge group tours provided by other operators. Stephano met us at the train station, he pitched the tour well with factual information along with decscription of daily life allowing to imagine life as it was then. The magnificent houses, temples, ampetheatre, wash houses, shops, food and so much more.

Outstanding Small group Tour of Pompeii My husband and I traveled from California to visit Rome and Pompeii. We arrived in Pompeii and were comforted by an additional reminder text as to where to meet. Stefano, our guide, promptly met us and four other travelers ( a family from Switzerland) in front of the rail station. Australian group missed their train and would stay in contact with Stefano and meet us 20 minutes later. The tour hour tour was excellent as guided us to the highlights of Pompeii and was ready to answer questions from our group with detailed information. He is Italian, but his English was outstanding. My husband and I were pleased that we booked this small tour as we passed other massive tour groups- wondering how they could hear and absorb the knowledge put forth

Best way to see Pompeii is this company! Me and my husband booked online and met Mr.Stefano at the train station in Pompeii, he was waiting for us and was easy to find as he had a sign with our name!It was a semi private tour so we had other couples in the group and it was fun to meet other couples traveling! The tour was so interesting, the price is fair and we had only 10 people in the group so we could see 2 houses, the spa, some hidden alleys where big groups don't go and we could appreciate the little details that make Pompeii so special. The tour was very well organized and our guide Stefano told us they started a new company of young tour guides that want to offer more quality at a right price, for travelers who like to explore and don't like big groups... Well done! Was worth every cent

Amazing Tour We spent a lot of money on tours on our Italy trip and this trip to Pompeii was our cheapest tour and our best tour. Going at 4pm was amazing. Our tour guide was also fantastic. Our tour group was also only ten people which was great

Great tour I highly recommend this tour. Prior to visiting I had planned on using an audio tour or just touring Pompeii with a guidebook. However, a friend recommended doing a private or semi private tour and said it was well worth it. We ended up getting a private tour with Stefano. There is so much about you having this type of tour. For the more, if you are a large family I would highly recommend this also. Stefano speaks English, Spanish, Arabic, and a little bit of Russian. Pompeii is huge and we would not have known where to go. Stefano took us to some really interesting areas and explained the history and significance of the site. I also highly recommend booking he or his wife in advance. We toured in late May just before the busiest season and he is already getting booked up. One last thing, if you are driving a rental car, park in camping Zeus. It is close to the main gate. Furthermore, there is a restaurant that is decent and adjacent to the parking lot and they validate the parking costs.

“Excellent tour, would highly recommend.” Stephano provided a professional tour and pitched the commentary well. Kept our interest throughout, describing daily life, shared his knowledge, encouraging questions, allowed us to visualise life as it was. Throughly enjoyed and would highly recommend.

Stefano was very knowledgeable about Pompeii and pitched his commentary well, giving us enough information but not too much. He maintained the interest of the whole group, giving insights into how people lived in Pompeii. He had a relaxed professional manner and welcomed our questions.

“V.informative tour delivered by the guide in a upbeat exciting format” Very pleased with Stephano who brought Pompeii alive with his vitality and enthusiasm for the subject. He made a good tour great, answering any questions we threw at him with ease. Very knowledgable easy going delivery. Thank you.....highly recommended

This was a very, very good tour” It was really worth taking this tour. Antonieta shows you a selection of places out of the huge excavation area, that are very well chosen and explained. Anto is archeologist and is very professional about transmitting the most important aspects of the history of Pompei and their people at the time of the eruption of the Vesuv.. Also very good in avoiding spots that are overrun by big groups

“Brilliant” Stefano was an exceptional guide, it was a small group and he explained the history of Pompeii and encouraged questions. He timed where we went in Pompeii to avoid crowds. I could not recommend him highly enough to others. Thanks so much Stefano.

“Informativ, man erhält einen guten Überblick.” Es hat alles wie in der Ausschreibung versprochen geklappt. Man erhält viele Informationen und in der Kleingruppe ist es gut möglich Fragen zu stellen. In zwei Stunden kann wegen der Grösse der Ausgrabung nicht alles besichtigt werden, für eine Familie mit Kindern ist es genügend. Wer mehr will, kann nach der Führung noch selber auf Entdeckungstour gehen

Great Tour! Google Traduttore Because Pompeii does not have explanatory signs posted around the site, it is critical to take a guided tour when visiting. Stefano was extremely friendly and knowledgeable about Pompeii, so much so that other visitors were coming up to our group and asking for his business card. Stefano knew details not only about the city, but about the culture of the people who lived there. He also planned the tour for the least crowded, coolest time of day. As a result, we did not have to wait in line to see Pompeii's Red Light District or most popular frescos. I highly recommend signing up for a tour with Stefano

Exceptional walking tour provided by Semi Private Pompeii Tour Great evening timing so its less crowded and hot especially in June. Exceptional guide in Antoinetta that gives you the full picture needed for the Pompeii walking tour. Covered all the necessary places in Scavi Pompeii within the 2 hours so its really enough if you fear it is too short.

We had a fantastic tour with Stefano. There were only 8 people in our group & Stefano was very enthusiastic & personable. He shared his passion & knowledge of Pompeii with the group and was happy to answer any questions. We had an issue getting down to Pompeii after mixing up our trains. Stefano went out of his way to help us & gave us extra time as we ended up arriving after the tour had started

GREAT PRIVATE TOUR OF POMPEII AND HERCOLANEUM. We took a day tour, coming by car from Praiano. Fantastic experience with Antonietta and Stefano: very reactive from the first contact, all questions and explanations related to organisation provided by phone and WhatsApp. Great guide during the tour, very pleasant person! To recommend 6*!

“Knowledgable and fun tour of amazing Pompeii!” Our guide Stefano was fun and knowledgable. Thoroughly enjoyed the tour. And as it’s for small groups (max 8 per group) you really get to know Pompeii with your guide. I highly recommend this!

“Es war ein tolles unvergessliches Erlebnis.” Die ganze Besichtigung verlief sehr professionnel und war gut organisiert. Wir haben viel interessantes erfahren konnten viele Fragen stellen und hatten viel Platz für Fotos, da wir immer die grossen Gruppen die sich auch noch dort befanden vermieden. Antonietta hatte eine Engelsgeduld für die vielen Fragen die wir ihr stellten und hat uns viele Details erzählt zu den Dingen die uns im Besonderen interessiert haben. Ein grosses Kompliment. Wir werden auf jeden Fall wieder auf die Dienste von GetYouGuide zurück greifen wenn wir wieder einmal die Möglichkeit haben sollten. Vielen Dank Antonietta für eine unvergessliche Führung an einem sehr schönen und interessanten Ort

Great way to experience Pompeii. Antionetta was very professional and helpful from the start, reminding me beforehand to bring my son’s passport. This semi private tour was a great way to see Pompeii. Antionetta is very knowledgeable and bought the place alive for us. We were only 5 in the group so could ask as many questions as we wanted and move at our own pace. Money well spent.

“Wonderful day with Stefano!” A small group tour is the way to go. It’s personal and much less crowded - you can see the features - and Stefano does a wonderful job of taking you through the main points while giving a history lesson. He tries to keep you away from the large crowds and takes he time to show you more areas you might want to visit on your own. You also get to skip the ticket line which saves A LOT of time!
