Linda is an outstanding guide.
My third time in Pompeii, but learned more from Linda than past two trips combined. She is an outstanding guide: knowledgeable, funny, and kind. She also helped during the weeks before the trip communicating about new entrance requirements. You’re lucky if you can land a tour with Linda. My teen thoroughly enjoyed & learned a ton.

Well guided by Linda
Oct 2020 • Family
We are a family with two teenage children and we included a visit to Pompeii during our Sorrento vacation. For this we booked a private tour with Linda. It was an excellent choice. Linda gave us a great two hours through the city and gave us a lot of exciting details. We can absolutely recommend Linda.

What your best friend would do ...
Oct 2019
We booked a guided tour of Pompeii with Linda in advance of our holiday in Sorrento. Her communication is great and we met Linda at the train station, where she was waiting, exactly as arranged on the day and time she had recommended to avoid the crowds.

Pompeii is vast, and without a guide you could waste most of the day wandering through the streets. Many buildings were closed, without enough staff to cover, or are undergoing renovation. Linda knew exactly where to go to see the important Pompeii highlights and, even if there was a queue outside, a quick nod to security had us whisked through.

Linda has an engaging, friendly style of presentation, often asking "Why do you think ...", and "Bravo!" when you get the answer right, rather than listing fact after fact. I would imagine she is great with teenagers, but it worked just as well with us.

Although we had booked her for two hours, we did not feel pressured. She left us plenty of time to take photos and ask questions of our own, and insisted on showing her final special highlights, even though she overran the time we had booked. We really enjoyed our tour which went far too quickly.

Normally, this is where my TA review would have ended. However, a disastrous accident later that day left me in hospital, with insurance papers and mobile phone charger back at the hotel, struggling to understand the Italian medical staff. That evening, I send a WhatsApp to Linda to ask if she could help translate.

By next morning, Linda had retrieved the essential items from the hotel and was on her way to the hospital, to meet with the orthopedic consultant I was due to see at 9:30. She then helped my wife obtain some money and purchase crutches from the local pharmacy. After being discharged, she arranged with the hotel to have me transported back there. She couldn't do enough to help us, but refused on numerous occasions to accept any money for her time and travel expenses.

Linda isn't just a tour guide; she is now a true and honest friend to us.

Worth every penny!
Feb 2020 • Couples
Highly recommended. We did the 2-hour guided tour of Pompeii. Linda is passionate and a scholar of classical history and Pompeii specifically. She has years of experience, is super-professional, knowledgeable, and honest about retelling the history. She took us to see the best, by-passing the “reconstructed” parts to focus on the original and best examples. She brought Pompeii to life connecting it to today.

Linda is certified which is important. Many guides are not. There may be less expensive tour options; they won’t be as good.

Skip the line Pompeii Tour with Linda G.
Feb 2020 • Family
We had a private tour of the Pompeii Archaeological Park with Linda. She was a wonderful tour guide who showed us so much and answered our many questions. She was extremely knowledgeable and lovely. It was a 3 hour tour and we loved all she shared with us! Linda met us when we got off the train with a sign and corresponded with us the day before and morning we headed to Pompeii to confirm our time and all logistics which I really appreciated. It was me, my husband, my 20 year old daughter and 17 year old son. We highly recommend Linda G as a tour guide!!

Amazing tour of Pompeii
Oct 2019 • Friends
Linda was a great guide, she contacted us before the trip to confirm where to meet and helpfully provided the train timetable. She even gave us some restaurant suggestions when we told her we were staying in Sorrento.
The tour was amazing, she was very knowledgeable and guided us through the crowds to make sure we didn’t miss the most important details.
She clearly had a lot of background knowledge and was able to answer any random question that we had.
Linda is an official guide and well worth the money, some of the unofficial guides that we passed on the way were giving out either just basic information or completely inaccurate information.
Very much enjoyed the tour, thanks again Linda!

We contacted Linda several months prior to our arrival. She gave us very good suggestions and guidance regarding getting skip the line tickets and even which train to take out of Naples. She met us as we got off the train at Pompeii and were guided through the "skip-the-line" process so fast that we didn't even see a line. Linda is a warm and very knowledgeable lady. Her descriptions of places and things at Pompeii brought this dead city to life. Our tour with Linda was one of her private tours, just me and my wife. Linda gave us so much insight into the people of Pompeii and their daily lives. We will definitely have Linda show us other places when we return to Italy.

Informative but relaxed tour of Pompeii
Sep 2019
Linda was a great guide around Pompei. She managed to find the less crowded spots and we really felt that she showed us not just the predictable highlights but also the smaller gems that we wouldn’t have noticed otherwise.
Highly recommended!

Well-paced and fascinating tour!
Sep 2019 • Couples
Linda was very easy to communicate with in advance and we really enjoyed our tour of Pompei with her. It was just the right pace to be interesting but not overwhelming. We learned so much that we would have no idea about if we’d gone on our own. 2 hours was a great amount of time as Linda showed us round the crowds to find the right spots. Thank you Linda!
