Absolute favorite tour. Pompeii was incredible. We were lucky to get a third generation tour guide, the personal commentary and perspective was invaluable. The time of year was priceless, no crowds, saw so much more than the normal tour because of no crowd. Positano could be a day by itself what an amazingly beautiful place. If there were to be any changes, it would be to drop the Amalfi stop and add a little more time to both Pompeii and Positano. If there were six stars this would be it.
The day trip to Pompeii and Amalfi was awesome! I would recommend it highly to others. Very convenient and comfortable riding in a Mercedes van, long day 14 hours, but we slept on the way back. The scenic views were beautiful. This was a recommendation in the Rick Steves book and well worth the money.
Don't miss this trip if you have never been to either of these places.This was an excellent tour, with a knowledgeable and helpful driver and another knowledgeable guide in Pompeii (although he walked too fast leaving the whole bunch of us running to keep up). It was a long day--picked up at 6:45 and not back to the hotel until close to 9, but packed with interesting and beautiful sights--and best of all requiring no driving by us. These were sights I had long wanted to see, and they lived up to expectations. The roads are twisty and narrow on the Amalfi coast--so doubly glad we weren't driving. The tour choice of a small van made sense as we negotiated these roads, and oohed and aahed over the breathtaking scenery. A large bus could not have taken us where we wanted to go. You should note that the price of the tour does NOT include the cost of admission to Pompeii nor the cost of lunch. I found this surprising. I do want to give a double hats off to Max our driver--I don't know how he does this trip several times a week with such good grace--as it was tiring to be a passenger and not required to do the considerable amount of difficult driving on the Amalfi coast as well as the quite long trip both ways on the autostrada.
Wonderful day! Our Pompeii guide made the two hour tour not only educational but, fascinating and entertaining. We loved the small group experience especially traveling along the Amalfi coast.
This tour was absolutely amazing. The travel guide was a superb host for the day and the entire experience was fantastic. Pompeii is a must see site for anyone and the coast is gorgeous.
The highlight of our holiday was this trip. Max, our driver was great , very informative and loads of fun. Our guide in Pompei brought the visit to life for us, giving us interesting information of the daily life of this once great city. And the views of the Amalfi Coast is something that will stay with us for ever. What a spectacular part Italy. I would recommend this day trip to everyone.
This was such a great way for us to see Pompeii and the Amalfi Coast in day. We were able to be picked up directly at our hotel in a very comfortable van. We were with two other couples which made for pleasant companionship without the challenges that sometimes arise with large bus tours. The tour bus driver, and Pompeii tour guide had alot of local knowledge and were very interesting, friendly and accommodating. The cost of the tour was very a very good bargain for what we received. We would highly recommend this tour for anyone wanting to explore these regions in a comfortable day trip.
I absolutely loved this trip. Only one suggestion for the organizer - make it clear that (a) the two-hour Pompeii visit is at a fast pace and therefore not suitable for people who are not able to walk at a fast pace; and (b) the trip is definitely not for people with motion sickness.
Wow! First the scenery was fabulous at the coast. Spectacular. And loved loved loved visiting Pompeii as well. Well worth the cost. We'd do it again.
Extemely organized. Brando, our driver was fantastic! Long day, but well worth it. Our tour guide in Pompeii was the best. His name is excaping me right now, but he was a 3rd generation Pompeii tour guide, very knowledgeable. I think his name is Gaetano. Already recommending to friends to sign up through Viator. Positano was wonderful for lunch and shopping in Sorrento was a bonus. Great limoncello!
Booking through Viator is a great way to see the highlights. Would use Viator for other countries when visiting.
We had a lovely day trip to the Amalfi Coast and Positano. Brando was an amazing coach driver and guide. Despite a major accident that happened on the main highway to Amalfi, Brando used alternate routes and we managed to get to the coast in a timely manner. No rush, it was a relaxing drive. The tour of Pompeii was educational. Didn't have time to pose for good pictures we were so focus on what the tour guide was saying...for all we know, we were already headed for the exit! It was a fun experience though. This tour also included a short drive through Naples and we got to see the Island of Capri and City of Sorrento from a distance.
Had an awesome time it was well worth it. Our guide Brando promptly picked us up and was so nice and informative and made it a great experience. I would recommend it to everyone.
The tour was excellent. I would recommend to anyone traveling to Italy.
