A very good but exhausting trip. The personalized treatment with having only 8 people on the trip certainly helped and the driver (Alessandro) was a fountain of knowledge as well as a very good driver - he needed to be on the Amalfi coast! Also the visit to Pompeii was accompanied by an excellent guide who pointed us to all the relevant items of interest with a good sense of humor.
A fabulous day. Pompeii guide exceptional. Some tips for improvement - it would have been helpful if the driver had explained to participants the arrangements and itinerary for the day on pick up, all were left wondering (Even a printed off handout would have been helpful); one less passenger as very compromised space next to driver; no texting and chatting on the phone while driving.
Great way to see the stunning Amalfi coast. Important to see Pompeii while it is still in such good condition. Great driver.
The tour of the Amalfi Coast and of Pompeii exceeded my expectations. There were only 7 people in our group. The driver and our guide were knowledgeable and accommodating. There was plenty of time for rest stops, photos, and eating. In Pompeii, the tour guide was very good. Pompeii was spectacular. The van picked me up at my hotel and delivered me there at the end of the day. I highly recommend this tour and this company.
Great way to sit relax and visit the coast. Pompeii was great. The Guide was excellent.
Te Amalfi Coast and Pompeii itself was amazing. Tour guide and Pompeii guide were excellent.
This was a long day, but if you don't have a car and want to get out of Rome and see the coast and Pompeii it was great. The tour did not include the price of admission to Pompeii. This was weird and unexpected. We were in a van with 8 people. The driver was great and informative. We were picked up at our hotel, very convenient. The coast and drive was beautiful. Positano is charming, had a nice lunch there. Amalfi is one big gift shop, but fun to see. The tour at Pompeii was really great too.
The drive along the amalfi coast is spectacular. Our driver navigated the road well and with skill as it was very narrow and windey. The guide in Pompeii was very informative and precise. We got a condensed tour as we were limited for time, but still got to see major points of Pompeii, as it is large and repetitive.
Excellent!! This was my favorite trip in Italy. Our driver was super, and we had time to explore several little towns on the coast. Our tour of Pompeii was excellent as well. Very good tour guide. Highly recommend!!
And thank God someone else was driving!
No words can describe how beautiful the Amalfi Coast was. We drove along several kms of winding, twisting coastal road, with several stops along the way for picture-taking. We stopped in Amalfi and then Positano for lunch. After, we went to Pompeii and had an excellent and informative tour. I can't wait to read more about Pompeii now that I'm home. Many, many thanks to Roberto, our driver. Our hotel in Rome was changed at the last minute, and he came to our new hotel at 7:00 am when he didn't find us at the one we had confirmed. I'll never forget this tour. It was the highlight of a week in Rome, Florence and Venice and well worth the cost.
We were picked up at 6:45am by Roberto our driver at our hotel. He drove a van and we picked up 3 more couples for a total of 8 people in this van. He drove at high speeds 140 kms per hour which is normal for Italy. Most were passing him on the freeway - but he was a very safe driver. The scenery was incredible, and seeing the sharp hair pin turns on the Almalfi this is why he drives a vehicle this size. It was a long day, but interesting to see all the different towns along the coast. We stopped at rest stops to have fresh squeezed lemons, shopping and lunch at Postiano = lots of free time to venture around the stores, and to the beaches to see the views of the Amalfi. This tour is a must see. After the Amalfi we were driven to Pompeii at 4pm to see the ruins. Our guide Hector was incredible. He has been a tour guide at Pompeii for 35 years. He knew every fact possible about Pompeii. His heart is in love with Pompeii and it shows. He was great. We didn't get back to our hotel till almost 10 pm. Lots of quiet napping time in the van along the route home which was nice... Both Roberto and Hector were great.... Both spoke very clear English and we fell in love with the Amalfi and Pompeii.....Thank you to both of you!!
GREAT!!! SALVATORE WAS AWESOME AND MADE SURE THAT WE ALL HAD FUN AND ENJOYED THE COAST!!!
Very nice trip although be prepared for the winding roads of the Amalfi Coast, especially if you are prone to becoming car sick. The towns along the way were very nice but somewhat touristy. Our Pompeii guide was a 3rd generation guide and was fantastic! We were really looking forward to seeing Pompeii and were pleasantly surprised and very impressed by what we saw and heard from our guide. We would say that our Pompeii tour was one of the highlights of our 3 week tour of Europe.
