Amalfie Coast is a must-see. Pompeii is a must-do.
Love every minute of it.
The tour guide in Pompeii was wonderful - he loved Pompeii, was so informative and answered all questions. He was considerate and kept the group together.
Amalfi went above and beyond my expectations, the transfer over the mountains from Naples was an experience, the hotel was lovely with helpful considerate staff who volunteer great information about the local area and ways to spend our free time. I recommend mths short ferry trip to Positano - it was beautiful!
Very well organised. Guides were very informative and we had enough time out from walking and listening.
Most enjoyable trip. Loved Amalfi!
We absolutely loved this tour. Miriam had very interesting information and Victorio was so passionate and knowledgable about Pompeii. I would not recommend the Naples part of the tour. We went on to Amalfi for 2 nights and highly recommend upgrading to the 4 star option. A very well organised tour!
This trip was brilliant. The Amalfi coast is beautiful and very picturesque. The hotel we stayed in was excellent and the bus ride from the hotel to Amalfi is something to be experienced. Pompeii was extraordinary and I also recommend taking a boat trip from Amalfi to Positano, to complete the experience.
The staff was very professionaland knowledgeable. Our only frustration was waiting for translation for 2 people who were with an entire group of English speaking travelers. Our hotel in Almalfi had a breathtaking views. Thank You for making our excursion so memorable.
Lovely 3 days with Sunny 25o days, The (opt.) trip to The Isle of Capri was a lovely day with our trip to The Blue Pools beautiful. I did however feel that the one fee you paid at Capri for this tour should have been inclusive of the entry to the cave which wasn't the case.Vivienne (Australia)
The Amalfi coast is beautiful, and the trip overall was great, however, when we arrived at our hotel The Excelsior, they did not have a reservation for us, and we were given a small room, without a view and the air conditioning did not work. The hotel meals were very good and the hotel appeared overall to be a very nice and 4 star business. The hotel staff, with the exception of Anna Marie on the front desk who was surly and unfriendly, were polite and very friendly and made the guests feel welcome.

The walking tour of Naples was a bit short but considering that the highlight was Pompeii it was OK. The cameo factory tour was really not interesting and the items far too expensive for souvenirs to take home. Great views of the Tyrrhennian Sea from the Hotel Fontana in Amalfi and good to explore on our own. But we could have used some more advice on what's there to see. Overall a very good excursion.
Stop in Naples was a waste of time-more time could have been spend in Pompeii or SorrentoAmalfi. We should have gone to Sorrento but things got crossed and we were booked in Amalfi instead. Had to make reservations in Sorrento on our own and pay difference.
On August 31 of 2016, my friend and I left Rome for a three day tour, which included Naples, Pompeii, and the Amalfi coast. From the very start, we were met with difficulties.
First, we were instructed to meet our driver at a hotel near our accommodations at 6:30 am. We arrived at 6:20 am and found him in the lobby, very irritated that we weren't already there. He tossed our luggage into the back of the van and pealed out with us and two men. As we careened through the twists and turns of Rome, we all buckled our seat belts out of necessity or we may have been thrown from our seats. Then we picked up two additional tourists and headed at breakneck speed to the Carrani tour hub. Our driver didn't tell us where to go or what to do, but we found our bus and embarked only to wait about 45 minutes to an hour to depart. I don't understand the haste and discourtesy of our first driver when we had to wait on the bus for so long to leave.
Finally we left Rome and arrived in Naples. We expected some sort of tour, but all we did was get off the bus for a photo of the bay and we were hustled back on to the bus to a hotel/restaurant where we were served tasteless and barely warm food. We were constantly reminded to tip the waitstaff at least one euro. I thought for the cost of the tour this was unnecessary and condescending.
The tour of Pompeii was fine.
After Pompeii, we separated from the main group and were driven to the Amalfi coast. We had upgraded to a 4 star hotel, and found our accommodations to be lacking. Our refrigerator didn't work the entire time we were there. We asked about it at least three times and were assured it would be fixed it was not. The room was very hot the air conditioner couldn't keep up with the heat outside. The food for dinner at the hotel was not 4 star quality at all.
Before we left the states for our Italy trip, we had booked train tickets from Naples to Milan for the afternoon of our last day on the Amalfi Coast. When we arrived at our hotel in Amalfi, we asked the staff to call Carrani and arrange for an earlier departure, from 3 to 12. They assured us that it was all taken care of. Then the morning of our departure, we discovered that the hotel staff had merely booked us a taxi, costing us each 50 Euro on top of the cost of our trip. We had paid for the transfer from the hotel to Rome, and we simply needed to leave earlier to catch our train in Naples.
The Amalfi coast was beautiful and Pompeii was an interesting visit, but I would not recommend this tour to anyone because of the expense and the low quality service, accommodations, and food.
The lunch provided was terrible. Plain fish or meat was a disgrace. I would not be proud to serve that.
Pomeii tour was very educational. Amalfi was wonderful.
This tour was poorly organised and there was not much communication to the group what was happening over the 3 days. We were on a bus with half the group only doing the first day of the tour which was to Naples and Pompeii then returning to Rome. We were then taken by mini bus to Amalfi not knowing where we staying and what was happening for the remaining 2 days. The 3 day tour was overpriced for what it was as the last 2 days only included accommodation and meals no further guided tours. We had free time for the last 2 days which was nice but we seemed to be paying the tour company for nothing.
Naples was a waste of time, Pompeii-good. At this point suppose to go to Sorrento but forced to separate from our friends due to a Viator miscommunication. Which was not remedied due to the fact that your dealing with a third party! Claudia tour guide was not very positive with her delivery.
No real tour in Amalfi - more of a do it yourself trip. Transportation back to Rome was a mess and the local tour group was unwilling to assist. You can book your own trip much cheaper. Amalfi is really worth seeing though.

Mostly positive experience. Transport and hotel excellent, staff friendly and fun. However, felt should have included with visit to Pompeii a trip to museum in Naples where Pompeii artifacts are held, or at least given a choice. Walking tour of Naples uninteresting and a waste of time! Also, some tours give some choices and suggestions for free day activities, and this would have been appreciated as we did not have time to do our own research.

Our tour guide from Rome to Naples was very good. The guide in Naples and Pompeii was decidedly unexciting and her English was very difficult to understand. The hotel in Amalfi was very nice, the service and meals were excellent. In the tour description it only listed breakfast as included. It turns out dinner was also included. Also in the tour description it said the we would return to Rome mid day on the last day. It turns out we didn't leave until 3pm and then went back to Pompeii to wait for the Pompeii tour to leave for Rome. One day in Amalfi is more than enough.
This was not much of a tour. There was a lot of wasted time where we were expected to purchase junk. Driving through Naples does not constitute a tour. I was sent alone in a car with a driver that could not speak English to Amalfi. Dropped after dark and told my hotel was up the street. I will never book a Viator tour again.
It is a waste of time this trip do not do it the first day is good and would just say to do the day trip. After the day your you are put in a car for transport to Amalfi the hotel is ok but can book yourself for 50 euro on booking.com and no other tour is planed you are left on your own
