I wanted a quick getaway from Rome and this tour fit the bill. It was very well organized, and the hotel in Sorrento was lovely, no need to upgrade. The scenery was gorgeous of course, and all the guides but one which I'll discuss in a moment were helpful and cheerful.
I was disappointed in the guide to Pompeii. She was hard to hear and understand and didn't seem to care at all. I asked her several questions and the answers were brusque at best. It was a shame, I wanted to learn about Pompeii and she was ..... A hindrance to put it politely. Still, the whole tour itself carrani was a good value and well done. I'd book something like this again.
Excellent tour. Hotel and room were great. Staff at Grand Hotel Vesuvio was very helpful. Food at the hotel was excellent. View from hotel balcony of the blue water and Mt. Vesuvio was the best. The hotel certainly was better than expected. Only down side was it was a little further away from city center, but we did not mind. Naples part of the tour is a waste of time.
This was a fantastic trip. Simone, the guide of Capri, took good care of us and we even got into the Blue Grotto. We had to arrange our own private van tour of the Amalfi Coast which we loved. This was reasonable when arranged by the Sorrento guide.
This trip was so great, hotel they put us was so close to the center of town and the food - dinner and breakfast was good. Very friendly people. We took the city bus and visited the Amalfi coast. I recommend this tour.
A little chaotic with so many transfers into different buses for a single trip.
The only standout is the hotel and meals in Sorrento
Capri trip is good also
This bus trip was the best! Our primary guide Sasha really made our trip fun and we learned a lot along the way. My partner and I were really impressed with his knowledge and ability to make us all feel like one big family.
We were picked up at our hotel in a van and taken to the bus at the meeting point. Bus ride to Naples etc was excellant driver and guide very good. Naples was just a twenty minute stop at the harbour which by all accounts about Naples was just right ! Not a nice place according to guides and Romans.
Pompeii was excellant - the ruins are well worth the trip and with the guide Marco were even better. Easily could spend another full day there - another trip perhaps.
Our hotel in Sorrento was fantastic Imperial Tramontano. Well beyond our expectations. Room and meals were top drawer. Very classy place. Day trip to Capri again excellent - with the guide every detail and highlight was looked after for us. Great day.
Return to Rome was right on time with our pick up and drop off at our hotel in Rome.
Thanks for three outstanding days.
Great tour, with good transfers and well organized. We choose the pricey option because it was our treat for our 30th Wedding Anniversary trip to Italy. We got the Tramontano hotel in Sorrento with water views, just beautiful and central. The food was fantastic. We were lucky and able to see the Blue Grotto, rode to the top of Anacapri don't stay there too long and had a great time in Pompeii. If you don't have much time or a car this is the way to go. Rented a car that took us south, so much fun and so beautiful. Hope to go back!
5 stars only for the Sorrento and Capri portions of the trip. Naples is advertised in the heading but it is little more than a 15 minute stop at the Bay of Naples, or less if the cops run you off like they did us. Pompeii was a disaster. We had to pick up a group of German's who had been shut out of their tour of Capri. So we had one tour guide trying to do a tour in German, English and Spanish. We saw very little of Pompeii due to the lengthy stops for the guide to give her spiel in three languages. Now the good part, Sorrento and Capri. If you take this tour, spring for the 4 Star Superior Hotel Ambasciatori and ask for an ocean view room, you will not be disappointed. Our room was great, the view was nothing short of spectacular, and the staff was excellent. The food at the restaurant was also very fresh and very good. The hotel grounds are amazing. Sorrento was a fun place to explore and shop. Capri was also nice. Be sure to take the lift to the top for great panoramic views.
Excellent tour, highly recommend. Organisation was outstanding, guides knowledgable, accommodation lovely and included food nice.

This was an excellent experience. My suggestion is that for the 3rd day you should give a choice at the out set to go to Amalfi coast with transport arranged through you or independently. We did go through your local agent to find a car.
This was probably the best thing we did on our trip to Italy. The stop in Naples was REALLY quick, like 10 minutes so they shouldn't even highlight it in the package. The hotel in Sorrento was beautiful. The trip to Capri was awesome and we got to go into the Blue Grotto which is rare I hear since it's always closed. We rented a scooter and rode to Amalfi. A must do if your'e up for it.
Wonderful trip, had to get used to the crowds. Transportation and accommodations were outstanding. Our guide in Pompeii was not engaging and lost us on the way. Our guide in Capri was wonderful. We enjoyed every aspect of the trip and would highly recommend it.
This was truly a highlight of our trip to Italy. The hotel in Sorrento was outstanding with wonderful food. The tour guides were great. We loved the Blue Grotto in Capri. Pompeii was very interesting. I would highly recommend this tour to everyone. It was worth every penny we paid for it.
My daughter and I took this tour together. Most of the tour was great - some not so good. The trip to Naples and Pompeii was separate to the trip to Sorrento and Capri as after visiting Pompeii, those staying over in Sorrento were placed on another bus. Our tour guide to Naples / Pompeii lacked enthusiasm and she spent a great deal of the bus trip talking in Italian to the bus driver very annoying. In Naples, we collected our tour guide for Pompeii - an older woman by the name of Wilma. After lunch in a restaurant at the Pompeii site this was quite good - we were left with Wilma to show us through Pompeii. We had been looking forward to visiting Pompeii and Wilma thoroughly ruined this experience for us. She shuffled along slowly, mumbling away - it is was impossible to hear or understand her. She spoke a lot about the weather I think and quite a few of us became so fed up, we took our head set earpieces out so we didn't have to listen to her. This is the worst tour we have ever been on! Also on this whole tour both guides spoke in a second language, along with English. So distracting and time consuming. Tours should be in one language only! The trip turned for the better when we left these guides behind and went on the second bus to Sorrento. If you take this trip, my recommendation is take the 4 star hotel - it was magnificent and dinner and breakfast was superb. Our trip to Capri was very nice and our guide was very good. When in Capri, I recommend you take the chair lift up to the top - the views are glorious and you can look down over the local houses, yards and gardens on the way up. The trip to the blue grotto is ok - you are only in there for a short while, but it's another experience. All in all I can highly recommend this tour - except for the Pompeii experience unfortunately!
Great tour, Sorrento and Capri you need more time both were awesome. The tour guides were super, good food, hotels were ok.
This was an excellent and well organized tour. The hotel in Sorrento was well located, and had a direct view to the sea, with friendly staff. The dinner in Sorrento was great. The trip to Capri and Anacapri was excellent. If you to Capri dont miss the Chair cliff, the view was very amazing.
Just absolutely fantastic trip. Amazing 4 star hotel. We didn't have to worry about anything and we had an exceptional time in the south of Italy.

This trip was amazing. We had various guides for different parts of the trip and they were all very organised and informative. We had a brief stop in Naples, more to take photos. The time at Pompeii was very interesting and long enough. It was very hot so suggest hat, sunscreen and lots of water. Our hotel in Sorrento was on the water with a private beach and was a great way to spend our free day in Sorrento. The trip to Capri was beautiful and was just like we had seen in photos. All the included meals were of a high quality and standard. A family of four, with two teenagers, we all thoroughly enjoyed this tour and it has been one of the highlights of our holiday.
Excellent trip that I will always remember. Each individual tour guide was experienced, knowledgeable and extremely accommodating. My hotel in Sorrento was fabulous with what I considered a 5-star rating. The food that was included was beyond my expectations. The tour was well organized and exceeded all my expectations.
