Great trip, many unexpected surprises! Could have skipped Naples. Loved the hotel in Sorrento, great meal and views. Marco our tour guide in Sorrento/Capri was the best. Very well informed and great sense of humor. Would recommend this trip to anyone visiting Italy.
This was an amazing trip. All the hosts and drivers were very friendly and helpful. Would use Viator again.
This tour was fascinating and FULL of history. There was not quite enough time to linger in Pompeii to dream of days long ago but this was a MUST, MUST, MUST see attraction. The trip to the Island of Capri was breathtaking and so worth the trip. The Grotto trip was a very long 2 hour nauseating wait in a rolling sea for our turn to enter the cave. The sight was well worth seeing in the end. The people were very friendly and spoke English well. Our guide was very knowledgeable indeed.
Great tour and well organized.
Sorrento and Capri were definitely the highlights.
- to skip Naples as the walking tour was quite fast and not so valuable
- reach Sorrento earlier if possible and perhaps arrange an evening tour to Positano
- dual language made commentary made it longer than required
We Have recommended this tour to everybody. The Pompeii ruins were fantastic. Marco who took us to Capri and the Blue Grotto was brilliant. He gave us lots of information, knew the area very well and had us all laughing.The accommodation at the Royal was 6 star in our view and certainly worth the upgrade.Our only disappointment was we didnt do a longer tour with you. Thank you so much.wonderful memories.
Naples could have been skipped completely as we didn't have enough time to do more than walk past the highlighted buildings without going into any of them. Pompeii was very interesting especially since we had been there on our own 9 years ago. Seeing Pompeii with a tour guide was very informative. Less time could have been spent in Pompeii and more time in Sorrento. Sorento and Capri were the definite highlights of the tour. All included meals were fantastic and our hotel room in Sorrento was excellent with a fantastic view of the harbor from the balcony in our room. Our tour guide Marco in Sorrento and Capri was very entertaining, knowledgable and organized and kept everyone together and moving as a group. Nobody was left behind at any time. I definitely would go on any other tour with Marco as the guide. The only down side of the tour was that it was a dual language tour which seemed to make all descriptions and instructions seem to take a lot longer. Our final tour guide, Christian, on the part from Capri back to Rome seemed too quiet and unsure of himself but he got us back to Rome without any problems.
Loved it! All the guides were kind, funny, and spoke great English! The hotel we stayed at was on of the cheaper options visitor offered and the view was amazing along with the food!
Fantastic tour, Very convenient way to see Pompeii, Sorrento , Capri and Blue Grotto. Accommodation exceeded our expectation in Sorrento. Driver and tour guides were great and managed difficult traffic through narrow streets of Sorrento with humour.
The experience was handled most professionally. Every event was well organized and each guide was excellent. Our hotel in Sorrento was lovely and our travelling companions were most enjoyable.
Your travel service deserves to be well recommended.
Great, well managed trip. Fabulous hotel in Sorrento. Interesting tour of Naples and Pompeii. Breathtaking drive along Sorrento and Capri coasts. Knowledgable and personable guides who spoke very good English. I'd recommend it to anyone.
Wow what a great trip. We had a wonderful time and fantastic guides to show us around.
The accommodation and food were outstanding, the views from our balcony were so beautiful. We truly enjoyed going into the blue grotto. Visiting Capri also a beautiful place to visit. We wished we had more time so as to have stayed there for 2 nights.
Well conducted tour. Host on return to Rome was extremely caring to my wife who had difficulty walking.
Accommodation in Sorrento was excellent.
Good guide in Pompeii and Capri.
Thought you handled the logistics of handling, transporting and feeding people with different languages and different itineraries and matching us up with the local guides was incredible. The hotel (Royal) in Sorrento was very nice. Vittorio (guide for Naples and Pompeii) was average, Hector in Capri was outstanding. Think a little too much time was spent in Pompeii and not enough in Naples. Time in Capri was perfect. Great job - would book with you again when traveling.
Pompei was spectacular (guide Ornella was terrific) , absolutely loved the hotel in Sorrento (one of the high points of a 2 week trip), Capri was pretty but we couldn't do the Blue Grotto due to the weather. It was actually a beautiful day but the sea has to be dead calm to enter the grotto. Only negative was the guide who took us from Rome to Naples - Juan Carlos - who I found snarky, sarcastic, and borderline rude when responding to questions from some of the passengers. I'd do this again, but stay two nights in Sorrento.
Our tour for this experience was led by Carrani Tours and they did an excellent job! We left Rome and went to Napoli, stopping along the way for a coffee break (if you've never been to a coffee shop in European rush hour, you are in for a surprise!) Once in Napoli, you take a short tour of the historic sites near the port. It only lasts about 30 minutes. If you are looking for more time specifically in Napoli, this is NOT the tour for you - that is the only time you will spend there, and you really do not go very far since you are basically just around the port area. After this brief stop in Naples, you board the buses to Pompeii. Pompeii is incredible, and the tour guide that we had in Pompeii was so knowledgeable and witty - learned an incredible amount of history from him. You will like Pompeii! You will have lunch there, and the meal is good. From Pompeii, you leave to go to Sorrento. Sorrento was in fact my favorite of all of the stops that we had - it is absolutely breathtaking and not completely covered up in tourists. The hotel we had in Sorrento was beautiful with incredible views of the sea. We went out into the little town to do some shopping (lots of shopping, and not all tourist shops, either) and we were having such a good time that we didn't in fact even go back to the hotel for our dinner. We chose instead to eat at a restaurant recommended to us by a local, Antica Trattoria. it was a foodie paradise! I highly recommend it if you decide to eat in the town. It is a little pricey, but it is delicious and artistic food in a great atmosphere. In the morning, we ate breakfast at the hotel (great views of the sea from the terrace, too) and boarded to go to the water taxi to Capri. Capri has beautiful views, but it is also VERY touristy. Lunch was good. Blue grotto - we saw it, but if you do not get to see it, do not lament this - buy some pictures (it's beautiful, but the effort to see it is overrated). Great trip to see much in 2 days
We had a fantastic time. Transport was punctual and comfortable. All the tour guides at all destinations were very friendly and helpful. The hotel in Sorrento was fabulous. We didn't expect such a nice hotel. All the tours to Pmpeii and Capri were well organised and we felt we saw the best of all destinations. We would definitely book through Viator again. Thank you
This tour greatly exceeded our expectations. The tour of Pompeii was very thorough and enjoyable. The tour guide very knowledgeable. Sorrento was wonderful and the hotel absolutely beautiful with top level customer service. Our only regret here was not enough time to explore more, but, as with any tour, there will always be places we wish we had more time. The tour out to Capri was nice. A very beautiful island but has become a bit touristy.
I love it! Carrani is one of the oldest travel company in Rome and it showed on the way they organized the tour. The tour leaders are very efficient. The tour guides are knowledgeable and they have a good way of communication with guests. I was "assigned" a room with superb view in Sorrento. And the dinner in the hotel's restaurant was so good. Heard from guests staying in other hotels that their restaurants were perfect, too. And the weather was good the day I was in Capri so we were able to visit Blue Grotto. OMG! My tips: If you have time, take the 3 days tour. You will have 1 more night in Sorrento to explore the small city and enjoy your hotel.
This tour was AMAZING! It was so well organized and incredibly well run. The hotel is Sorrento was beautiful, the tour guides were really helpful and informative, the included meals were delicious. I cannot explain how much I loved every second of this tour. Capri is the most spectacular town, and this tour is a great way to see it! Highly recommend!
Really enjoyed this tour. The guides were helpful and knowledgeable, the food at the restaurants was excellent, the transport was very comfortable. The 4 star hotel included in the tour was fabulous. I would not recommend this tour to someone with restricted mobility (not able to walk far), as to get the most out of this tour, walking is essential. Would definitely recommend as a quick way to get a taste of these locations.
It was an extremenly pleasant experience! Local guides were interesting, the hotel was gorgeous and the activities breath-taking! Got back to Rome a bit late (22h00) on day-two, but it was not an issue for me as I was travelling alone. I would recommand that trip any time! Thumbs up!
The tour was very nice! Viator answered all my questions, mostly about hotels and pickup and dropoff. At the Rome level the tour was run by Carrani, which did a very nice job. All the guides spoke English and were easy to understand. The meals were pretty good, especially dinner at the hotel in Sorrento. Our hotel was a mystery until we got there (apparently Carrani splits the tour across several 4-star hotels in Sorrento based upon availability). But the hotel we had was very nice. We got to see Pompeii, do a brief walking tour in Naples, exploring in Capri and we even got to see the Blue Grotto! That requires very calm seas as you need to sit VERY low in the rowboat. We were coming off one tour and then planning on spending an extra day in Rome afterwards and I was a bit nervous about hotel pickup and dropoff. It all went very well. I would gladly and quickly do another tour with Viator (and Carrani in Rome). I highly recommend this tour!
More than I expected! Although I wasn't all that impressed with the first stop in Naples, the Pompeii tour was eye opening, as that civilization had just about everything except electricity when it was snuffed out 2000 years ago. The overnight stay in Sorrento's Hotel Ambassadori was top notch and high class. Capri, Blue Grotto and Anacapri are all great eye candy. The various tour guides definitely know their stuff.
Overall it was a fantastic experience. The Hotel in Sorrento was outstanding, I was really impressed. Dinner was included as well, and it was a really tasty 3-course dinner. I wish I would have gone on the 3-day tour instead of the 2-day tour though, as I would have loved to have more time in Sorrento, as it´s really beautiful. The guide for Capri was great, really engaging and friendly, and although we had to wait a bit to get in the Blue Grotto, he kept us informed and entertained. Great value, definitely recommend it!
