I finally got to meet Linda in person a few months ago, when she gave me and my small group a tour. I am a travel planner and I have sent clients to Linda for years, and every single client told me that she "was so smart and amazing, so fantastic, so nice, so friendly, so funny", and now I know that she is indeed all of these things. To learn the incredible history of Pompeii from Linda was a treat that we all greatly appreciated and enjoyed. Grazie mille Bella Linda!
Linda is an exceptional guide. She has an archeological degree and made Pompeii come alive for us. Her explanations were excellent, and were enhanced by her sense of humor and personal charm. Her English is also excellent. I'm just sorry that we couldn't engage her for other tours during our stay on the Amalfi Coast. Next time! Many thanks, Linda, from the four of us!
Our tour with Linda was incredible! She gave a huge history nerd like me a ton of information. I learned so much on our tour that I don’t think I would have learned without Linda. She showed us parts of Pompeii that we never would have thought to check without having her guiding us! Thank you so much Linda for your time and detail you put into the tour!
Definitely take the opportunity to have Linda make Pompeii come alive for you as she guides you through this important archeological site. Her passion and knowledge of this place is demonstrated by the stories she conveys about the people of Pompeii.
We booked this tour having read all of the reviews and were not disappointed. Linda is an amazing guide and was super patient - our train from Rome to Naples was severely delayed but she waited for us and still gave us the full tour. She took us in via a quieter entrance and we worked around the main sites in reverse. It was super hot but she was patient and made sure we filled the water bottles regularly at the drinking fountains. We were two adults and three children aged 10,10 and 14. She took time to make sure that the children understood what we were seeing without being patronising to our eldest - she balanced the tour perfectly. Its a two hour tour but we were with Linda for 2.5 hours - she met us at the train station and made sure we got back to our return train on time. I think this is enough time in the blazing heat for children and it held their interest - any longer and they would have switched off - but I am tempted to return in the winter with just my husband as there is more to see.
Touring Pompeii with Linda shouldn't be missed! She arranged a driver to pick us up from the cruise ship, and we now call both of them Linda our guide, and Angelo our driver, "The Young Guns." They both are 5 ***** +++!! Linda was so informative, and cared about what we thought and wanted to see. we only wish we had more time to spend in Pompeii and learning and laughing with Linda! Make sure you get Angelo to drive you around too! He arranged lunch at the BEST restaurant, and got us everywhere we needed to be. BOOK WITH LINDA!!!!
I wasn’t sure what to expect from a private tour of Pompeii and Herculaneum but I have to say the tour deeply enriched our understanding of the culture through not only the artifacts but also through Linda’s deep understanding of the people and the social climate at the time of the disaster. She not only explained the most important rooms of the city, but was also well versed on the intimate details of every curiosity we had on the site. I would not only recommend her tour, but would use her again as I know she has more knowledge than we were able to absorb in our six hour tour. Bonus: she also set up an air conditioned sit down lunch between our two locations which was a welcomed respite from the heat.
Linda is a wonderful, warm, funny extremely knowledgeable guide. We had a marvelous day touring Pompeii with her. You couldn't ask for a better person to show you around.
Linda has a wonderful way of tailoring her tour to the interests of her group. She's extremely knowledgable and knows how to inform in a way that brings Pompeii and Paestum absolutely alive to her audience. It feels like being with an old friend who happens to have the background to make a truly memorable experience. Could not recommend this tour more highly. Brava Linda!
Linda is absolutely the best guide to have for the Amalfi coast and beyond. She is so knowledgeable about the sites you can visit and one of the nicest people you could ever meet. You will be happy you booked tours with her!
Linda Guadagnuolo was our tour guide for three days and she was excellent. She was very knowledgeable an the history of where we were and what we were seeing. I would recommend her and the tour to anyone .
The best guide ever. We were on a small group visiting Pompeii and having a tour in a winery in the National Park of the Vesuvius where we had a wine tasting and lunch. our guide spent the tour getting to know the guests on the tour that day and not in an intrusive way but in a way that shows genuine interest giving us the historical and cultural background of the attractions. The guide talked to us like you are long-time friend in town for a visit. Highly recommended!
"Thank you so much for what is one of the most amazing travel experiences of my life. We got to see so much of the ancient city of Pompeii, and doing it with Linda made it more fun than you could imagine, her passion made it truly, truly memorable. She was very informative and shared their knowledge with us Thank you for all the fun and laughs!"
The highlight of a tour of Pompeii was our guide, Linda. Very knowledgeable and kept our interest on the hottest day of our trip!
