Gaetano is a masterful storyteller, whose love for this ancient town is palpable. Indeed he is a third generation Pompeii tour guide, who grew up exploring these streets, listening to the stories told by others who share his love. Gaetano tailored our visit to my concerns for our sensitive 9 year old. "You know Genevieve, I first visited this town... More

We visited Rome in late Sept/early October, and got in touch with Gaetano while we were there. He took care of all the details for our group of 4, and it was wonderful! A driver picked us up from our apartment and whisked us to Pompeii, where we were greeted by Gaetano. I agree with previous reviews on so many... More

Gaetano led us around the ruins of Pompeii for 3 hours one afternoon in October 2016. He came highly recommended and we were very happy we had chosen him. His knowledge and passion for the town are deep and wide - in fact, he is a third generation Pompeii guide, so it is in his blood. Pompeii through Gaetano's eyes... More

My wife had wanted to see Pompeii since she was a little girl. I tried to book a cheap group tour, but she insisted that we invest in the premium experience, and that experience's name is Gaetano. She was -- as usual! -- absolutely right. I didn't understand what Pompeii was all about. I thought it was the place where... More

By far the best experience we had in our two week trip across Italy! Don't go cheap with this once in a lifetime experience. Gaetano took us back almost 2k years and brought Pompeii to life with an amazing narrative backed by archeological evidence...worth every penny. He's a true professional, very responsive, and left us in awe. Stop shopping for... More

We were a group of three that wanted to see Pompeii. The driver picked us up at our hotel and drove us to meet Gaetano. The driver was very nice, knowledgeable and got us to Pompeii on time. Gaetano was a wonderful and very knowledgeable guide of the site. He took us to locations in Pompeii that were not crowded... More

We recently visited the amazing ancient city of Pompeii with our private small tour guide Gaetano Manfredi. Gaetano is very knowledgeable about the ancient city and provided us with great details about life in the ancient time when Pompeii was a bustling sea town. He is funny and entertaining and we couldn't have asked for a better tour guide. Our... More

Gaetano was a wonderful tour guide who made the history of Pompeii come alive!! So informative and knowledgeable. One of the most enjoyable parts of our trip. Our driver Antonio was great also, very knowledgeable and took us to a wonderful lunch in Positano. I give Gaetano my highest recommendation!!

Our small group tour of Pompeii was fantastic - primarily due to the entertaining and knowledgeable guide, Gaetano Manfredi. He is a third generation tour guide and has seen the ongoing discoveries unearthed at Pompeii. He creates a humorous and thought-provoking atmosphere when comparing the ancient and modern world. He is also very energetic and artfully avoids large tour groups.... More

While staying in Rome we decided it would be great to visit Pompeii. We read amazing reviews of Gaetano's tours and day trips to Positano and the day was truly one of the best days of our trip! We were picked up by our driver in Rome and we were able to skip the lines and jump right into the... More
