After planning the rest of the trip, I saw this and jumped on it because it required no planning! We picked the upgraded accommodations in Sorrento which was amazing because our hotel was right on the cliff and had direct access via elevator to the swim club below which was outstanding. The Pompeii trip was amazing and Capri - especially the Blue Grotto - was a fun outing that my kids are still talking about. Highly recommend.

This was a great easy paced tour that we thoroughly enjoyed. The hotel was fantastic, the history enlightening and the shopping and food in Capri was marvelous. Since the winds kept us from being able to go to the Blue Grotto, we were taken to Ana Capri instead. It was well worth it. And of course we bought the Capri watches. :-

This trip was amazing! I took my mom to Europe and we booked this tour to make life easier and it was wonderful! Pompeii was very cool with interesting history. Sorrento and Capri were beautiful! The hotel in Sorrento was incredible. I think we got really lucky to get such a nice view of Mount. Vesuvius from our balcony! Don't go on this trip expecting to go to the Blue Grotto in Capri because it depends on the tides since the opening to the cave is so small, you have to get on a small row boat to enter the cave. My mom and I were lucky to get to see the Blue Grotto and it was beautiful! The Southern coastline of Italy is gorgeous! We definitely want to go again!

Our trust in Viatour was well founded. They orchestrated many people to the right place at the right times for carefree outing. Listen to them well and go where they suggest. Except we wanted more time in Sorrento with the nice hotel there so we skipped Amalphi optional outing. Bring swimsuit.

My has been and I went on this tour in August the first day we drove to Naples for a quick stop just to take photos of the beaches and buildings around the area. Pompeii was very interesting and enjoyable our tour guide Vittorio was very informative passionate patient and
friendly. In the evening we arrived in Sorrento. We booked the superior hotel we were taken to theTramontana hotel which was on a cliff overlooking gulf of Naples and Mount Vesuvius just breathtaking. The hotel was amazing and provided a great breakfast and dinner.
The next day we went to Capri and up the top to anacapri with beautiful views of the island. Then went to the blue grotto
which was a great experience on the beautiful blue waters of Capri. The next day we had free time in Sorrento for shopping or sightseeing. In the afternoon we left to go back to Rome.
Amazing and breathtaking!!!! This tour is highly recommended a great experience very enjoyable.

The coast is AMAZING! Transportation is safe and comfortable....it's a few hours so just relax and ride. Pompeii is INCREDIBLE - we had no idea the city was so big. The guide was excellent and her English was terrific. The small coastal towns are cute but look mostly the same - when you've see one.... Capri is a must - weather permitting you'll enter the Blue Grotto if waves are too high you won't, if you do, you'll be treated to a blue you'll not see anywhere else. The hotel Grand Hotel Vesuvio was BIG and inclusive. The accommodations are first class, the grounds are perfect and the views are mind-blowing, the food however is average. We chose to eat dinner in Sorrento instead of the hotel even though the cost was ours to bear but a MUCH better choice.

Organisation was great. Food was good. Only negative was that there was no coffee/tea making facilities in room, so had to get up and go without coffee. All the guides and sites where fantastic. Also remember this time of year is really hot so ensure you dress correctly. Bring umbrella to Pompeii there are no shade.
