Pompeii Private Tour Guide Service Excursions and Tours
Thank you, Antonio for a great tour of Pompeii for our family on May 19. It was “eccellente”! What a great experience to see the city with you — your knowledge and the way you brought the history to life was perfect for our family of four. My two daughters (aged 12, 14) were captivated by the tour. Bravo! (And we also enjoyed the granitas from papa!) If and when we are next in Napoli or Pompeii, we will look you up and explore more of what this area has to offer! Grazie! – Brian and Family

On behalf of our group, we wanted to express our sincere gratitude to you for the incredible experience we had on our visit to Pompeii on May 15. As you may remember some of our party was already waiting for us inside and we were unable to make contact until we met you.
You were such an incredible guide with an amazing amount of information and knowledge. You made our trip to Pompeii extraordinary. We are still talking about Pompeii as the highlight of our trip.
We can’t thank you enough. We were truly blessed to run into you and be able to share the day with you in Pompeii.

All my best regards to all of you !!!!!
I brought a group of adults and students to Pompeii and was looking for a guide who was not only knowlegeable, but could keep the intrest of teenagers. Antonio did it! Not only did he give us a great tour but he was very easy to understand. We all loved him! He made Pompeii come alive. Thanks Antonio and when I bring another group – you will be our guide.
Dear Mr. Somma:
Our family of four was recently privileged to have you give us a private guided tour of Pompeii. What a wonderful tour and afternoon we had. Your wit, humor, knowledge and obvious enthusiasm made Pompeii come alive for us. You had the complete attention and interest of our teenage daughters (ages 18 and 16), which is no small feat. During our trip to Italy we had arranged several private guides for tours in Rome and Florence. You were by far the most engaging and entertaining guide we had. Being able to refresh at your Father’s restaurant upon our arrival from Rome was also an unexpected bonus. Our family would without hesitation recommend you to anyone who wants to visit Pompeii.
Thanks again for an experience we will never forget.

Dear Mr. Steves:
Based upon the recommendation in your Italy guidebook, our family of four on July 17th had the privilege of a private guided tour in Pompeii by Antonio Somma. What a wonderful tour and delightful afternoon we had. Mr. Somma’s wit, humor, knowledge and obvious enthusiasm made Pompeii come alive. Mr. Somma also had the complete attention and interest of our 18 and 16 year old daughters, which is no small feat. During our trip to Italy we had arranged several private guides for tours in Rome and Florence. Mr. Somma was by far the most engaging and entertaining guide we had. Being able to refresh at Mr. Somma’s family restaurant, just outside the gate, to Pompeii upon our arrival was also an unexpected bonus. Our family had an afternoon we will never forget!
Thank you for recommending Antonio Somma, and for your other extremely valuable travel info and tips in your guide book. Keep up the good work!

thank you so much !!!! this great notice about me gives to me enthusiam and great willigness to continue always with professionalism. !!! grazie, Antonio Somma
Antonio did a great job as our guide. He really made Pompei come to life. With a little of his help you could really picture what it looked like 2000 years ago. I already knew a little about Pompei from studying it in school, but was flabbergasted when I saw it in real-life. I only expected a few houses, but when you see it, you realize that there was a lot of civilization here. My favorite part was how Antonio described things in a funny way. He provided great information on how things used to be. All the details – the roads, the canals, the sewage system – who would expect all that? I’m going to tell all my friends to come see Antonio.
Antonio we wanted to thank you for a fantastic tour of Pompeii ! you really brought the rich history of the Roman empire and this special place alive for us plus you made it a lot of fun ! I already recommended you to another family who will be coming your way in two weeks that we met in Positano. Folks the only way to see Pompeii is with Antonio !!!
Antonio! I have been wanting to write in your guestbook since the day we had the tour, but I was busy trying to figure out how to write a review about u in Rick Steves’ website! And guess wad, I still don’t know how to do it!
I think ur the best tour guide Randy and I had in Italy! U made Pompeii alive! Thank u for answering our endless curious questions.

Hi Tony. I wrote a reply so you would be pleased! The tour was really good and interesting. If I needed a guide for something like that I’d call you! Bye from Tish (aged almost 10 years).
And from Tish’s Mum…..our family of 6 really enjoyed Tony’s guided tour of parts of Pompei on 19 January 2013. Tony has been a guide since 1974 but his presentation is still very fresh and you can tell he is passionate about his subject. He is very knowledgeable about Roman lifestyle and has a great knack for explaining the relevance of it to our daily lives.
Buongiorno Sig.Somma , grazie ancora per lo splendido giro a Pompei di giovedì scorso mattino, per tutte le ottime spiegazioni che hanno coinvolto moltissimo mio figlio in una passeggiata archeo-storica eccezionale che ha molto emozionato anche me.Vogliamo tornare appena possibile, a presto!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
My wife and I plus my sister-in-law and her husband had a wonderful tour with Antonio on 6 Maggio 2013. Pompei is the kind of site that only comes alive with someone who knows the history and details and can present them in an understandable way. Antonio is the guide who makes Pompei real and not just a ruin. Highly recommended.
Antonio, mi scuso per il contatto ritardato. Abbiamo tutti apprezatto il tour di Pompei. Vi sono ovviamente molto ben informato, ma anche molto entusiasta e divertente. Ti consiglieri come una guida per chi davvero a Pompei. Ciao, Jon M.
We had a great tour with Antonio on April 19. He was easy to email with to set it up. We loved Pompeii and his tour was excellent…our 21 and 18 year old children liked it too. Antonio also facilitated finding a driver for us to take us to Pompeii from Rome with a terrific side trip to Positano. I highly recommend Antonio’s Pompeii tour!
We enjoyed our small group tour of Pompeii with you immensely! Your guidance was so friendly and English-language commentary so clear and knowledgable! May 6, 2014. Very highly recommended!
We went on a Pompeii and Sorrento tour with Antonio through our cruise line on Tuesday July 28th. We met Antonio and by the end of the tour, it was the best one we had ever been on. It was like we knew Antonio for years. We travelled with our three daughters, twins Gianna and Sara (10) and our youngest Simona (8). The girls just loved him and so did we. His knowledge about the area is second to none. He is entertaining and extremely passionate. The Naples region is such a beautiful and breathtaking place, if you are in search of a tour guide, contact Antonio for sure!!! Antonio, la mia famiglia non ti dimenticera mai. Qualche giorno quando ritorneremo in Napoli, ci rivediamo davvero. Le mie gimmelle parlano di te ancora! A presto! The Famiglia Febbraro del Canada.
Absolutely brilliant tour guide! Antonio has an extraordinary wealth of knowledge and really made the experience of Pompeii come to life. I would highly recommend Antonio to anyone 10 out of 10!
I had a great time on my tour with Antonio! He was very knowledgable and passionate about the subject. I really got a sense of how life was in Pompei before the tragedy. I would recommend Antonio to anyone!
Great tour with Antonio. Lots of enthusiasm and knowledge. He added tremendous value to,our tour of Pompeii; money well spent. I would unequivocally recommend him to anyone.
Antonio gave us a great tour of Pompei today. It was very informative and with him you avoid the crowds.
Antonio and his son, Mario, provided us with fabulous sightseeing experiences that we will treasure. Our family of six was treated to a personal tour of the Amalfi peninsula, Pompei, Ercolano and Vesuvio over two days. Their Mercedes van was very comfortable and cool during hot July weather. Mario was a superb driver and guide. Professor Fabio provided an excellent and interesting lecture tour at Ercolano. Antonio is the Emperor of Pompei! Their knowledge about the history and culture of the region was remarkable, and really enhanced our experience. Best of all, they treated us like their own family. We will return to tour with them for a third time in the future. Bravissimo!
