We report on resonant and non-resonant photonic tunneling experiments. Resonant tunneling of wave packets has revealed a light localization, whereas the non-resonant barrier tunneling has corresponded to a zero-time barrier crossing. For a frequency-limited signal the non-resonant tunneling transmission time yielded superluminal group velocities, whereas in the case of a resonant transition the velocities are much slower than c.
