Raffaele is such a professional, extremely knowledgeable and fascinating to listen to but also warm and friendly too. What a place! One day I hope to visit in person and it would be a dream to have Rafaele as a guide!

Raffaele is an excellent communicator. It is such a pleasure to listen to his information and also like the way he gives time for us to take a photo postcard.

My 8 yo son and I were watching Part I of the tour in Sydney, Australia. It was 1am but was worth every second. We set the alarm to wake up and pretended we were present in a different time zone, as we would have without the travel restrictions. See you in the next Pompeii adventure, Raffaele.
