Travel Recommendation

Pompeii and Amalfi Coast Full-day Tour

Naples

My Recommendation Tip

Pompeii is a unique and very interesting place to visit. It is so much more than mere ruins. Our morning tour provided a glimpse of what life must have been like in 79 AD in the shadow of the ever-present Mt Vesuvius. The concept and quot;stepping stones and quot; in the ancient streets got an all-new meaning, as well as the and quot;fast-food and quot; shops that served hot beverages to theater goers. Also, the very explicit mural and quot;menu and quot; in one of the brothels could just as well have been a few pages from the Kama Sutra. Our two tour guides, namely Jasmin and Suzy (English and Spanish), were very friendly, professional and knowledgeable.

The afternoon half-day trip from Naples to Amalfi along the coastal road (via Sorento and Positano) was absolutely beautiful. This must be one of the most scenic routes one can find anywhere. Our small group (only 5 persons) was treated to frequent stops for photographs, coffee, lemoncello and 20 minutes free time in Amalfi. The driver/guide, Pasquale Ombra, provided an excellent service in English; I can highly recommend him.

Overall, I was picked-up on time from my hotel (Royal Continental) and the tour (morning and afternoon itinerary) provided what was promised plus personal touches from the respective guides. I can highly recommend this tour; it is definitely worth the money.

The driver picked me up at the airport with my name clearly displayed on a board. Vehicle was clean. I was promptly dropped off at my hotel without any delays along the route.

Small-Group Mljet National Park Day Trip from Dubrovnik

Dubrovnik, Croatia

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

The Island of Mljet (Croatia) is a truly wonderful place to visit. It offers beautiful vistas of lush green natural vegetation, absolutely beautiful lakes, the quaint Church of Marija on a dimunitive little island (easy to stroll around the whole island in less than 30 minutes), and a stunning bike route (easy to rent a high quality mountain bike). For Christians, this island has an added attraction as being one of the stop-over places for Paul during his missionary endeavours. I can highly recommend this one-day trip to anyone visiting Dubrovnik or the Dalmatia area in Croatia.
