This tour started out really well with a prompt hotel pickup. The bus was comfortable and the guide was knowledgable. We stopped in Naples for lunch. This for us was the only low light of the two days. We felt the food was awful. From there we went to Pompeii. Our guide a Wilma was amazing. She was so knowledgable about this unbelievable place. This site is defiantly worth a visit. We then travelled on to Sorrento. We were pleased we paid a little extra for our hotel. It was wonderful. Situated overlooking the sea and close to night markets it was a perfect location. The dinner was one of the best meals we have ever eaten. The next day after a leisurely tasty breakfast we caught a ferry to Capri. Here we visited Capri and Annacapri. They are both beautiful quaint villages although a little crowded. The lunch at Annacapri was lovely. We were glad the Blue a Grotto was open. We were pleased we didn't have the 3 hour wait the morning people experienced. After this we caught a ferry to Naples and a bus back to Rome. We were dropped back at our hotel. It was a fantastic two days.
it was terrific , everything was well organized , even the hotel in Sorrento was great with breath taking view, except one thing the food in capri , I found a cockroach in my spaghetti plate and I told the tour guide and she didn't say a word even she didn't bring me another plate and as well the waiters , but every thing other than this was perfect.
My husband and I booked an 8 day stay in Rome. While we had plenty we wanted to see in Rome, we also wanted to see other parts of Italy. I was all set to book a one day tour to Pompeii and a separate one day tour to Capri when I found this tour. I was hesitant to book because I read a lot of reviews about people being annoyed about changing buses and wasted time. After our trip, I have to say that changing buses didn't bother us and during down time we sat in a cafe and sipped cappuccino. So, I guess it depends how much you are willing to go with the flow. We enjoyed our tour of Pompeii, but our stay in Sorrento was our favorite. Even without the upgrade option, we so enjoyed our hotel. It had beautiful views of the bay and Mt. Vesuvius that we enjoyed while eating dinner. Only down side was that I couldn't use my hair straightener due to a voltage difference at the hotel. Our day in Capri was AMAZING. We did some shopping in the morning and the blue grottos in the afternoon. One couple didn't want to do the shopping, so they asked if they could go swimming at the nearby beach. The tour guide was okay with this, but asked if they would meet back with the group after the shopping. So, if you are not into shopping, there are ways around it. Overall the trip was fun, informative, and romantic!! Totally worth it. Plus, we had a great tour guide named Carlos. He made the trip really easy to understand and fun. Do yourself a favor and book this tour!
Loved it!! The sights were fantastic. All guides were pleasant and professional with the exception of the Pompeii guide. She seemed unenthusiastic, as if she would have preferred to have been anywhere else other than where she was.
Smooth and well coordinated tour in Italy. We skipped lines and made traveling around this area so much easier. Food and lodging was pretty good too and guides were friendly the entire time. I would recommend doing this trip if you are trying to see many things within a short period of time.
I really would like to give this ten stars! This is one of the most well organized tours I have ever been on. The hotel I stayed in was wonderful I chose the four star option and all of the local guides were some of the best I had my whole vacation. The guide in Naples I forget his name was SO passionate and really made the place come alive. The guide in Capri Sascha was so amazing and ran the day so smoothly I wanted to hug him in the end. The day in Capri was one of my favorite days of the entire vacation it was so beautiful and the blue grotto was an absolute dream come true. I cannot say enough about how amazing this tour was, definitely recommended a million percent! Carrani tours in general seem to be very well organized and a good group to travel with.
Trip was fantastic! Guides were knowledgeable and extremely friendly. Hotel in Sorrento was wonderful. ..view from our balcony/ terrace was spectacular. Capri was breathtaking. ..Blue Grotto was once in a lifetime experience. Groups were not overwhelmingly large. Would hihly recommend. Good value
It was the best tour, Sasha an amazing guide, loved all of the excursion
Excellent value! There is too much to praise! The guide for Pompeii was so very knowledgeable, he brought it all to life. The view from the Sorrento hotel was breath-taking, and the hotel was very, very nice. Capri is amazing and the Blue Grotto was a once in a lifetime experience. So many wonderful things in a great two day adventure. So happy we took this tour. Thank you all.
bit expensive, but worth every single penny.
a very well organized tour with no hassle at all. all guides were very polite, helpful and knowledgeable.
i can rate the service/attractions/transport 95 and food provided 85.

It is another A trip. Got picked up from hotel, joined the rest of group to head down to Napoli beautiful coast, Pompeii so big and so much to see, Sorrento what a beautiful hotel we stayed and Capri breathtaking view and dropped off near the hotel. What a DEAL! It is worth every penny that we paid for this 2-day trip. I would highly recommend anyone to take this trip.
This tour was great for us as we had such limited time! Would have loved to stay longer and seen Amalfi though. The organisation we felt was superb, they had many different types of tours going on the same buses at different times and days which they worked seamlessly and tirelessly. Though it was hard for us on such a short tour to have 5 different tour guides over 2 days. Also the amount of languages they had to speak meant that you weren't getting as much information or tuned out completely. Its not a Naples tour just a stop but Sorrento was much more beautiful in my opinion anyway. Our accommodation we didn't go for the upgrade and it was just stunning! During our whole two month holiday we didn't eat as much food as we did in these two days! It was just course after course of paid for meals!
We had such a great time on this two day tour, even though it was pouring while we were guided through the ancient ruins of Pompeii. Amazing value for the price. This tour was extremely well coordinated, with various guides for each leg, and they were all mindful of making sure they had everyone in our group before leaving to the next location. Also provided some free time in each location to explore. Overall a great way to see all these places in a matter of two days without having to plan it yourself. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and would definitely recommend it!
The day starts early, but our guide on the ride to Naples, Francesca, was humorous and shared interesting tidbits about the region. Lunch was included at a restaurant in Pompeii with some traditional pasta of course, and meat. Our guide for Pompeii, Paolo, was hilarious and very charismatic. You spend about 2.5 hours in the ruins with the guide.
For the evening, you are dropped off at your hotel in Sorrento and have free time. The tour group is large and is broken into smaller groups staying at each hotel, but all are 4 star hotels.Our hotel in Sorrento was a dream, truly a beautiful hotel in a great location. Perched slightly up the hill with wonderful views of the Bay of Naples and Mt. Vesuvius - we woke up early the next morning and watched the sunrise in this beautiful location. We had an amazing 4 course dinner at the hotel included, which was one of my favorite meals in Italy.
The next morning we enjoyed the best complimentary breakfast spread at the hotel before being picked up for the boat to Capri, which take about 45 minutes. We were so happy the weather was perfect on this day. The boat ride to Capri, the isle of Capri, Anacapri, and the small boat ride to the Blue Grotto were all incredibly beautiful. The only disappointment was that we could not actually go in the Blue Grotto, due to sea conditions. We had lunch in Anacapri, and some free time in both Capri and Anacapri.
Great experience! Sasha was a fantastic guide in Capri and we were so glad we took his advice and took the chairlift to the top! Awesome! Only downside was the crazy bus switching in Pompeii and Ornella the tourguide there who was so eager to be on vacation that we felt like we had to figure out that part by ourselves because she didn't explain anything and just left us at the hotel and it really took away some of the fun. We loved Hotel Vesuvio but found it very frustrating that the pool was closed right after we got there. the Blue Grotto was great but the boats that took us into the grotto demanded excessive tips and this was very uncomfortable.We have recommended this tour often and wish we could go again! Plan on staying 2 nights in Sorrento and Capri!
Great hotel, guides, experiences, food. The only glitch was the dropoff in Rome, which tookover one hour. Better planning would help.We would rate it 4 1/2.
I didn't want to leave and wish I'd done a longer tour! The beauty of this region cannot be captured with words. Tour was well organised and conducted in a timely manner, allowing a perfect combo of relaxation/exploration/sightseeing.
it was an amazing tour. The hotel we stayed in Sorrento was beautiful.
These tours are d best . Very organized tour and hotel are excellent . Highly recommend this tour
We left Rome and went to Napoli, stopping along the way for a coffee break (if you've never been to a coffee shop in European rush hour, you are in for a surprise!) Once in Napoli, you take a short tour of the historic sites near the port. It only lasts about 30 minutes. If you are looking for more time specifically in Napoli, this is NOT the tour for you - that is the only time you will spend there, and you really do not go very far since you are basically just around the port area. After this brief stop in Naples, you board the buses to Pompeii. Pompeii is incredible, and the tour guide that we had in Pompeii was so knowledgeable and witty - learned an incredible amount of history from him. You will like Pompeii! You will have lunch there, and the meal is good. From Pompeii, you leave to go to Sorrento. Sorrento was in fact my favorite of all of the stops that we had - it is absolutely breathtaking and not completely covered up in tourists. The hotel we had in Sorrento was beautiful with incredible views of the sea. We went out into the little town to do some shopping (lots of shopping, and not all tourist shops, either) and we were having such a good time that we didn't in fact even go back to the hotel for our dinner. We chose instead to eat at a restaurant recommended to us by a local, Antica Trattoria. it was a foodie paradise! I highly recommend it if you decide to eat in the town. It is a little pricey, but it is delicious and artistic food in a great atmosphere. In the morning, we ate breakfast at the hotel (great views of the sea from the terrace, too) and boarded to go to the water taxi to Capri. Capri has beautiful views, but it is also VERY touristy. Lunch was good. Blue grotto - we saw it, but if you do not get to see it, do not lament this - buy some pictures (it's beautiful, but the effort to see it is overrated). Great trip to see much in 2 days
We loved our tour! The pick up/drop off were wonderfully convenient. Our tour guide on the bus to Naples/Pompeii was knowledgeable and entertaining. Our tour in Pompeii was very informative although the lunch was nothing special. The hotel where we stayed in Sorrento was beautiful spectacular view and the dinner and lunch there were delicious. The highlight was Capri. Our tour guide, Sacha, was truly excellent. We had lots of questions for him and he answered them all with knowledge, humor and stories. Of course the island was beautiful and we would have loved to have more time there. We hope to return and stay at least one night. This tour was definitely worth the time and money.
The trip was fantastic ,we enjoyed everything about it.
We did the hotel upgrade and were so glad we did ,it was amazing.
I would definitely recommend this trip.
