We had a wonderful time. We'd been waiting many years to see Pompeii and can now tick it off our bucket list. The tour guide was very knowledgeable, had a sense of humour and made our day very worthwhile. We took the hotel upgrade in Sorrento and had a fabulous experience. Our room and the food seemed 5 star. The view beyond gorgeous.
Due to choppy seas we didn't see the Blue Grotto in Capri. The island was over crowded and unless you want to spend your time shopping, I would recommend giving Capri a pass. Our guide there was wonderful in every possible way.
My daughter was feeling very ill on the bus ride back to Rome and the bus driver and our guide were both warm and compassionate and made the drive as good as possible.
We would definitely use Viator Tours the next time we are in Italy.
Viator tours are very well organized. The only experience that wasn't necessary was the tour through Naples. That was very ordinary...would be better spending more time in Pompeii.
Naples was a bit of a disappointment did not see much, Pompeii was great, Sorrento and Capri fantastic would love to go again.
The hotel and tours were wonderful. The getting from Rome to Sorrento and back was chaos and a large waste of time. However, overall I would do it again due to the sites, hotel, tours, and overall value.

Awesome! But too heavy traffic of tourists is not healthy anymore.
This was a great trip! We enjoyed Pompeii but Naples was the only let down, there was nothing to see and no time to see it. We were told the bus driver is required to take a break after driving a certain amount of time and that's why we stopped in Naples for 45 minutes. I would rather have taken a break at some little winery in the country or have spent the entire 45 minutes in Gambrinus which was the only highlight of the visit. Sounds negative but the rest of the trip was fabulous! Mainly because we got to stay in the GRand Hotel Capodimonte, which is truly a Grand Hotel! We still don't know how we lucked out with this hotel but we thank God or whoever made it happen ! It's beautiful with a superb location high up overlooking the town and the Bay of Naples (we think). The interior is beautiful with bright tile floors all ver, spacious rooms with sea views and a balcony and bathrooms that you could actually take a shower or bath in unlike most of the rest we saw in Italy. The food was excellent , the breakfasts were sumptuous and the pools were spectacular although we didn't have time to use them. I'd go back to Sorrento just to spend more time at this hotel, but we also liked the town very much and were lucky enough to be able to experience the Blue Grotto and Capri on a beautiful day. The Blue Grotto was a bit grueling but worth it We consider ourselves very lucky to have been able to enjoy all this without any of the many possible glitches that could have spoiled it. Thank you for making it possible and we highly recommend it to others.
I would give this 10 stars of possible! Probably the best part of our 8 day trip to Rome! I would absolutely recommend the upgrade! The upgrade hotel is beautiful!

What an amazing experience!! We loved every minute of our time on this trip!
Pompeii was fascinating and although it was very hot, we still enjoyed ourselves. Our tour guide was fabulous and very informative!
Sorrento is simply stunning and next time we visit I think we will spend a week there. The weather was perfect, our hotel was superb - We stayed at The Grand Hotel Capodimonte and there is so much to do and see! The shopping is incredible!!!
Capri and Ana Capri were also gorgeous, lots of lovely shops, the chairlift is worth doing and luckily we got to see the Blue Grotto! Our guide for the Capri day trip was Sascha, he was just wonderful and had a great sense of humour and was very informative!
I thoroughly recommend this trip is you have limited time and want to experience a small portion of the Amalfi Coast.
I would and have already recommend this tour to others! The hotel in Sorrento was absolutely amazing and everyone was very friendly and helpful. Capri and Pompeii were very good as well. Only thing I would change is we had no time to swim in Capri. There was plenty of time waiting around we could of
This was a great experience all around. The hotel in Sorrento was a wonderful surprise. Considering everything included in this excursion it is well worth the money.
This trip was the best vacation we ever had. The hotels and the food were outstanding. The front desk representative was helpful, patient with all of my questions, the waiters and MaitreD were professional and always helpful. I would quickly recommend the trip to anyone
We had an amazing time! We stayed at the Ambasciatori and got upgraded to a suite with a sea view which was such a nice touch. Most of the tour guides were great and very helpful, especially Ornella. As expected, Naples was not very exciting but we really enjoyed the rest of the tour.
Thought the whole trip was great value for money. Naples tour was dull but apart from that the rest of the trip was excellent. Organization and tour guides throughout Pompeii and Capri were very good. Hotel was amazing, lovely location and great food and service.
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!!!
