Wonderfull experience !!!! Carranis tours was great .
We thoroughly enjoyed out 3 Day Trip. It was everything we hoped it would be. We had just finished 7 days in Rome and ending our vacation on the coast was really amazing. The last day in Sorrento did not have anything planned, so we booked a private driver with another couple we met and felt this was excellent.
This tour was amazing!
We were lucky to have two exceptional guides for this tour. The first whose name I forget took us through Pompeii and really brought the story of the city to life through his passion for the subject and his in-depth knowledge. The second guide, Sacha, was a logistics magician who ensured that we got to every attraction we had on the list despite the huge crowds jostling for transport at various locations. The highlights of the tour were the Blue Grotto and the chair lift to the top of Anacapri. The remainder of the tour was also well organised. Highly recommended.
This was an insanely complicated trip because there were folks doing day trip, 3, 5, and 7 day trips but they had it all sorted really well. The accommodations were top notch. The meals were pretty good. I would definitely do the trip again.
Highlight of our trip! Amazing tour with very professional guides and so well organized. Hotel was beautiful and food was top notch. We fell in love with Sorrento and looking forward to returning one day.
Overall, I felt like I got my moneys worth by booking this tour. Especially as a solo traveler with limited time.
Make sure the day before the tour, you have the front desk or guest relations of your hotel confirm your pickup like I did. I was picked up on time and went to the meeting point. We boarded the busses and made a quick photo stop in Naples and then went off to Pompeii. The tour guide for Pompeii was very bland but definitely provided the necessary information of the sight. Take pics, explore and take in what you can at this amazing place. After Pompeii and a lot of traffic, we arrived in Sorrento around 8:30pm that night.
The hotel I had was Hotel Michaelangelo and it was definitely an older hotel. It seems like the people who are doing the 1 night in Sorrento get the nicer hotels for some reason. The hotel was fine however and the food they have was good. No issues at all with the dinner. I chose to eat crepes and at random cafes for breakfast each day.
Day 2 we went to Capri/AnaCapri and I HIGHLY suggest doing the chairlift for 11 euro. The views at the top are absolutely breathtaking and you'll have some of the most memorable photos ever. The Blue Grotto was open when we got in the boat to head over, but then closed while in route. This is NOT the tour operators fault, as they try their absolute best to get everyone to see it. Instead, they took us on another boat ride to see the other grottos and get some nice photos from the water of the island of Capri.
The last day which is a free day, can be used for whatever you prefer. A lot of people used it to take the train/bus to the Amalfi Coast, but I hung out and relaxed around Sorrento for the day. Sorrento at night, especially in Piazza Tasso is very fun and vibrant. Tons of people on the streets and it's extremely safe for everyone. Later that day they picked me up to head back to Rome at the time expected. Then dropped me off at my hotel. Thanks for a great time!
this was perfect for us, really limited the fuss of travel to Sorrento. Pompeii tour was very good our guide was very good. sorrento and our superior hotel was very very nice location was great. I didnt like getting a food choice off of menu but the food happened to be excellent. the capri tour was very nice too,but we were loaded on boat to the grotto and then went out a short way and the driver turned around said the waters were not good to go. we were all dissapointed. especially that we didn't see that the waters looked bad, but then we aren't the coast guard! the other ride out was beautiful. I'm sure most tour groups don't go to grotto even if you weren't set up with this tour.
Everything was great. On schedule.. Maurizio and I believe his name was Jose not sure but he was our guide at Pompeii it was great, very informative. Loved the trip from beginning to end.
