We had Michale and he and the tour were amazing! We signed up for the small group tour of Pompeii and Herculaneum led by an archeologist but because we were there shortly after things re-opened from being closed from COVID, it ended up being a private tour with Michale and hardly anyone else in the park. Michale didn’t let the fact that we were the only ones there for a “group” tour stop his professionalism at all. He gave us all of the information we could ask for, took his time, repeated facts several times, answered all of our questions, etc. Additionally, even though it was just us, he went over the allotted time. Our tour was supposed to go from 1000-1530 but we went to 1615 and he didn’t speed up or make us feel hurried at all. It was an amazing experience and I highly recommend this tour company for anyone going to Pompeii, Mt. Vesuvius, or Herculaneum. More specifically, asked for Michale and you won’t be disappointed! It is easy to see why they have so many 5 star reviews and because of our amazing experience, I will give them one as well and I don’t do that lightly.

We both really enjoyed our day, pompei is the more majestical site in terms of scale, though herculaneum is smaller though much better preserved.
Our guide, Ivan, was superfriendly, knowledgeable and clearly had a passion for ancient Roman history.
excellent day, thankyou.

This was the best tour I've ever been on. Paulo was knowledgeable personable and a great communicator. He brought Pompeii and Herculaneum to life. There is nothing he doesn't know about these sites. He brings a warm friendly manner to the day. I don't believe there is a better tour guide for this tour

Today had my Pompeii and Herculaneum tour with pick-up/drop-off from hotel. Before the tour, couple of days ago, I had really nice assistance given to me by Rosa, who have provided information about exact pick-up location, information about driver, etc.

Driver, we had today, was Francesco, who came to pick-up us on time, during the trip - towards Pompeii - he have showed and told about surroundings we had in our sight, as well - told the difference between old Pompeii and there are new Pompeii too. Francseco was really friendly driver, very keen to keep us happy, alive during the riding from place to place, informative, as well - he made me to feel safe in a traffic, because of his good driving skills. I hope, that Francesco will check this comment out, so thank you once again! It was really pleasure for us to be with you today :) I hope, that in the future, once we will decide to explore more in Napoli, we will have a chance to meet you again :))

Our guide in Pompeii and Herculaneum was Sergio. Guide, who for sure knows what he is doing, what to show and to tell to tourists, as well - very friendly guide, who was not in a rush just to finish with a group, but he did spent a time with us and answered questions too. Because of Sergio - we were able to hear a clear story of Pompeii and Herculeneum, which have helped to understand both cities better. On the way to the car - I was able to ask additional questions about Pompeii, Herculeneum, Mt. Vesuvius (as we are planning to visit it). so Sergio have answered all arised questions to us, and he even given more information from what I was asking, which really helps to understand even more. If Sergio will read this information - I really hope, that in the future trip - I will have a chance to meet you again :))

Askos Tours, itself, have organized everything for us from A to Z: pick-up, drop-off, guide, headphones so everyone from group would be able to hear what Sergio was telling, good mood, information about places.

I really appreciate this experience, and that's for sure - I highly recommend this company (and above mentioned people, if possible :P :) ) for trips! You will not hesitate it, you will get what you want and even more. I am pretty sure, that I will be using your services in near future once again :) And I will recommend you for my friends and colleagues :))) GRAZIE!!!! :)))))

BR,
Martynas and Justina :))
