Read what other Viator.com travelers think about the 3-Day Italy Trip: Naples, Pompeii, Sorrento and Capri. What they loved, what they liked and what they think could be improved, it's all here to help you make the most of your next trip.
The 3 day Italy Trip was an excellent value. Sorrento and Capri were so beautiful and Pompeii was very interesting. The stop in Naples was unnecessary as we simply passed by points of interest. Our guide of Pompeii was very knowledgeable. Sacha was an excellent guide and made our time in Capri extra special. Although we weren't able to see the Blue Grotto, due to weather, we did buy tickets for the chair lift in Anacapri and the views were amazing. Two negatives were that the tour company tried to switch our hotels which was very upsetting and stressful. When I booked with Viator I already had reservations in one of the top hotels in Sorrento. I only decided to switch to the Viator trip because you assured me that I would be placed in one of the hotels listed in the description of the trip. I did a lot of research on the hotels and felt comfortable giving up my reservation for one of the hotels offered with the 3 Day Trip. Then when I called the day before out tour left to confirm the hotel placement,the tour company told me that I was being placed in a different hotel and that there was nothing that they could do. Luckily after much discussion, they placed me in the original hotel that was listed, however, this situation was unacceptable and stressful in the middle of our vacation. I must say that the Hotel Capidomonte was absolutely wonderful. The service, meals and views from our rooms were first class. The only other problem, which should be addressed, is that the tour guide (forgot her name) that transitioned us from Pompeii to Sorrento recommended a private tour of Amalfi and said that she would be available by phone to help us make arrangements. We did call her and never received a return phone call. (We weren't the only ones with this experience.) Luckily, our hotel recommended a driver and we had a wonderful day. I should also mention that the guide from Sorrento back to Rome (also forgot her name) was excellent-so interested in each guest.
Totally fantastic tour. All of our tour guides were excellent and we got to see a wide variety of people, places and things all over the Amalfi Coast. The Grand Hotel Amabsciatori was absolutely gorgeous and accommodating with an excellent restaurant that has the perfect view of Mount Vesuvius. This was the best part of our trip -- I wish we could've stayed in Sorrento for a month!
Great tour. Well organized. The accommodation options are great. Would recommend this tour.
I was amazed at the organization of the tour's timed components. Dropping off and picking us up for the blue grotto excursion and all the pieces and the large number of people could have been a nightmare, but not for the tour operators. Sure there was some waiting, but if you did what you were told, you ended up in the right place. With plenty of time for shopping, and the sweetest garden spot for lunch, they took great care in making a delightful experience. My friend and I had a great time, met delightful people from Australia, and would use them again. Our hotel, Cape de Monte was the best! It had an amazing views from the restaurant and our room. Sorrento was our favorite.
This 3-day Italy trip was one of three tours we booked through Viator for our recent visit to Italy in June 2014. What a great experience! The tour was professionally organized and timely. The hotel we stayed at in Sorrento was like heaven on earth. We couldn't believe the view from our room; it was definitely worth more than the money paid for the entire tour. I highly recommend Viator.
This tour was spectacular. Only a short time in Naples and I'm sure there was more to see than we did. It seemd like we only stopped there to drop off the people on the day trip. Pompeii was amazing. Our guide was a bit heavy handed and wasn't that lively, lacked a sense of humour. The guide for Capri was wonderful, funny and full of knowledge. Capri was beautiful, not long enough there. The hotel in Sorrento was first class. Would have been nice to have the choice of whether to hav evening meal at the hotel on one of the nights as it would have been nice to experience Sorrento. Through the coach agent she arranged for a group of us to visit Positano the next morning. anothwe Wow experience. Trip well worth the money and could be extended another day.
Lovely trip - Pompeii tour was very informative and we had time to shop and have a coffee afterwards - (the best place to purchase Limoncello Liquor). Lunch was outside in a lovely restaurant with local food. The motel in Sorrento was beautiful and the restaurant we dined alone with full range on the menu and overlooking the bay - a stunning view. In Capri we took the boat into the Blue Grotto, went up the hill on the chairlift to see the amazing views. We had the last day to ourselves to wander around Sorrento or take a local bus down to the Amalfi Coast. On our return to Rome we were supposed to have a Motel drop-off, however we were left stranded with all our bags, some 3-5 km from our motel and were told it was just 100 meters walk around the corner. This spoiled up to that day a very good trip.
Absolute top. When we came to the Capri part of the trip the whole group of 20 persons had become friends and Marco appeared. He was clever and very very funny so we all got a memory for lifetime.
We had a great time unfortunately the Bluer Grotto was closed due to weather.
Well worth the investment, we would definitely recommend the hotel upgrade, the food and service were impeccable. The guides and the tours were helpful and informative. The only problem was confusion around drop off and pick up at the tour company, who were difficult to contact.
Fabulous touring experience!! Everything was professional and perfectly arranged. The local tour guides were knowledgeable and passionate about their areas. Bellisimo!!!
Thanks ever so much for an extremely well organized trip......we thoroughly enjoyed it!! The transport was very comfortable and punctual, the staff incredibly friendly and helpful and the accommodation superb. The tour guides were excellent with a wealth of information. We would definitely recommend this trip.

This was a fabulous way to see some of the Amalfi coast, as well as tour Pompeii. There were many connections to be made, but all were very smoothly done. We had several different local guides over the course of our trip, all of whom were efficient, enthusiastic and very professional. Spring for the upgrade to the Grand Hotel Ambasciatori in Sorrento. You'll be glad you did!!!
Loved this time!!! It was very organized and perfectly planned. All of the guides were helpful and knowledgeable. My 11 year old daughter went on this trip and it was interesting enough and varied to keep her attention. The hotel, Michelangelo was wonderful. All the meals were very good. I just could not recommend this trip enough. Again we love it.
Well what a brilliant trip, amazing value.
High points: Mirjiam (if a bit eccentric) and Hector(so caring) tour guides.Pompeii was great to see if a little rushed. Sorrento Michelangelo hotel was outstanding and the room was massive!Take a bus trip to the Almafi coast on the local bus, you will not be disappointed. Chair lift on Capri is a must, grotto was interesting if a little short lived.Lowish points: Dissapointed by Naples(could not see the point of going) and cheesy Coral workshop(DVD show and shop) at Pompeii. All transfers worked smoothly, apart from last one back to our hotel, the driver got lost several times and dumped us far from our hotel-but don't be put off he was obviously having a bad day! They are amazing-David and Ruth- Suffolk- UK.
Great tour and value! The local guides were kind , informative and watchful of the group. The hotel in Sorrento was beautiful and the food excellent with great service. Would definitely book again!
This trip was awesome, hotel in Sorrento was the best dinner in all of Italy because it was a full three course meal included in the stay. Francesca was a great host, Vittorino was very knowledgeable for Naples and pompeii tours, and Sacha was great for our Capri tour. Didn't get to go into the Grotto due to weather conditions but the history about it was excellent. Would definitely recommend. Thanks
An unforgettable experience. Highlight was island of Capri - highly recommend getting the cable car to the top of the island; the views of the coast are stunning.
This trip was fantastic from beginning to end. Everything was so well organized... we were told where to be when, and never had to worry about a thing. All the food was fantastic, but be aware that yes- meals are included, but sodas and any beverage will cost you about 3 or 4 Euros. The highlight of the trip was certainly the day spent in Capri and Sorrento and we would do this all over again in a heartbeat!
We got everything - exponentially - what had been offered in the trip itinerary. Beautiful, great trip. JWK
such a beautiful experience. thank you viator for this wonderful tour and place to stay.
We had never been on bus tour. The tour was the highlight of our Italy trip. There was a great variety of things to do and some free time. The tour guide Shasha was tremendous, informative caring and always up beat. The food and accommodations superb (Royal Hotel Sorrento). We are a retired couple and I felt at last this was our honeymoon. Favourite Capri Linda
AMAZING!! Cannot recommend this tour highly enough. An excellent way to see Pompeii, Sorrento and Capri. Our hotel (Grand Hotel Ambassadori) in Sorrento was superb - wonderful room, service was excellent, food (breakfast and dinner) the best yet, views are out of this world and you really feel you are staying somewhere special only five minutes walk into the main shopping area of Sorrento. The Pompeii tour was fab and the trip to Capri and the Blue Grotto (with tour guide Marco) was the best yet. The only let down on the whole tour was the lunch in Pompeii before the tour - could certainly do with some tweaking (perhaps a venue change) as did not measure up to the rest of the tour which was absolutely superb in all facets. This is a MUST DO.
