We took a tour of Pompeii with Lello and it was perfect! Our two children 9 and 12 were with us and Lello did great with them. Our 12 year old son said it was the best tour of our trip! The 2 1/2 hours flew by and we really felt like we learned something. Highly recommend! We'll worth the money for the individual tour.

Lello greeted us right off the train and gave us an entertaining and fascinating tour of Pompeii. He did a wonderful job of bringing the city to life for us and shared many unique details you would never get on a large group tour. You can tell Lello has a true passion for Pompeii. At times we felt like Pompeii was his home and he was giving us a tour of the place where he lived. The tour was, at different times, amazing, respectful and funny. Highly recommend spending time with Lello.

I booked this tour for my 16 year old granddaughter as the one thing she wanted to do in Italy was to visit Pompeii. Lello was excellent with her and very informative. It was the highlight of her trip. I was there before without a guide and learned very little. Lello was worth every penny. Family from Minnesota

We never like taking the "group" tours offered by the Cruise Company. We always opt for private tours and find that usually the cost is the same and sometimes much less. We were on an NCL Mediterranean cruise in late May and the ship docked for a day in Naples. We researched many private tour companies and decided to book with "Made in Italy Day Tours." We booked an 8 hour tour of Pompeii, Sorrento, and the Amalfi Coast. We are a family of five and we were met at the dock by our English speaking driver and ushered into a large comfortable air-conditioned Mercedes Van. (The tour by the way was 300 Euros less than the group tour offered by NCL and our tour was private. Not on a crowded bus with 40 other people)! We were treated like VIP's. Our driver was knowledgeable of the area and very pleasant and accommodating. He suggested a great restaurant for us to eat lunch in Sorrento where we had the best mozzarella we had ever eaten. He also stopped to let us get coffee and shop at our leisure, and we still managed to get in all the sites. The highlight of our trip was our stop in Pompeii. The tour company arranged for a private tour guide to take us through Pompeii. We met up with Lello in Pompeii and he was the best tour guide we have ever had. The man is remarkable. He remembered each of our names after being told only once, and his knowledge and enthusiasm of Pompeii kept us at attention. What really impressed us is that on two separate occasions other tour guys commented to us that we were so very lucky to have the best guide conducting our tour. (and these guides said this to us as they were conducting their own tours in front of their customers). Lello was able to identify with us and our older children, and kept us engaged by asking us questions and explaining things clearly and with enthusiasm. Lello is the best, and our driver was awesome as well. The day flew by! If you book 'Made in Italy Day Tours' for any of their tours you can rest assured that you will be treated professionally and get a real education. If you book Pompeii on your tour make sure you request Lello as your guide. He is a real gem, and will never forget the experience!

Our guide, Louise, spoke very good English, answered our questions, and took excellent care of us during our private tour of Pompeii. He provided knowledgeable information about the areas that we were seeing, pointing out details and giving the history of the ruins and details about the lives of the people of that time. Some in our group had been to Pompeii before, but found this visit to be best they had ever had. We learned so much more about Pompeii because we had a guide, never got lost, nor wondered where we were. I highly recommend this guided tour and our guide.
