Great service. Victoria arranged for a local guide at the Pompeii ruins who was informative and entertaining. Victoria also recommended a restaurant at Amalfi Coast which was absolutely heavenly - the views, the service, the food were impeccable!

Good day to you all,

My mom and I took this tour, ANDREA our guide who at the same time was our driver is a very nice men, very caring, drives carefully, very nice person, speaks English perfectly well. As if we had a body guard, he stayed with us all day, when I was trying to buy souvenirs he helped me and started bargaining with me. My mom needed to enter the bathroom, he paid for it and never accepted to take the money back.

The tour overall was amazing, actually more than I expected, our first stop was at Pompeii, an English speaking guide was waiting for us, Pompeii is a must see destination.

After Pompeii, Andrea took us to Amalfi coast and to Positano, two incredibly beautiful islands, we had enough ti,e to buy souvenirs and to take wonderful pictures.

Your trip to Italy will be without a meaning if you don't go to Pompeii and to these beautiful islands.

Thank you dear ANDREA for making this trip an unforgettable one, God bless you.

Lucy and mom

This tour was exactly what we had planned it to be. Since we were not able to incorporate more time in southern Italy on this trip it gave us a chance to see Pompeii, the towns of Amalfi and Positano where we had a great lunch thanks to the recommendation of our very wonderful driver Andrea. Andrea also took us on the famous Amalfi drive along the gorgeous coast which was a definite on our bucket list. The weather was clear and sunny and Andrea's expert driving and care for us stopping at beautiful look out areas was exemplary. His care for us as we toured was very dedicated and focused. This was a very long day starting early in the morning along with an ambitious itinerary that was made easier by his recommendations. We feel that it was a good trial run for our future visit to southern Italy. And if you get the chance to have Andrea as your driver so much the better.

This tour was the highlight of our stay in Italy. Our tour guide was superb. We were scheduled to be in a small group of six, but my wife and I were the only ones on the trip. So, effectively, we had a private tour, and our guide was knowledgeable, friendly, articulate, and caring. Easily an A.

I would give this tour 10 stars if I could. Absolutely a day and a drive that our family will never forget. Our guide, Victoria, was absolutely amazing and made sure our day was perfect. She was very knowledgeable about Pompeii and the Amalfi Coast and obviously is very proud of her country as she should be as Italy is amazing. She was an excellent driver and I can't say enough about how wonderful this trip was. We ended up having a private tour and it was so worth the money! Perfect day and tour!!

I was initially nervous about doing this tour because I did not get the final pick up time finalized until the day before. The tour company called my hotel with the time. I believe the reason for the delay in time was because they were waiting to see if other people were going to join the tour. In the end, it was just my partner and I, which was pretty awesome. Our guide was Victoria and she was fantastic! She is a great driver, funny, and really easy to talk to especially about Italian culture. We drove from Rome to Pompeii first. It was a long drive and felt like 3 hours or so. When we arrived, we joined another tour group fairly large and Victoria tagged along. It was skip the line. The tour for Pompeii was really funny and she pointed out the highlights of Pompeii. Victoria also told us about parts of Pompeii. We could have explored more, but it was too hot to stay too long. After Pompeii, we went to Positano. The roads were insane and I am glad Victoria knew how to drive through the windy roads. Parking was almost inevitable because of peak season. We had free time for about an hour and we went to a restaurant recommended by our guide. We couldn't go to the Amalfi town due to forest fires, so that was disappointing. The ride home was incredibly long due to traffic from people coming from the beaches and waiting in the tolls. This was the only tour for Pompeii and Positano that was available on Sunday that I found. I believe it is because they are willing to deal with the heavy Sunday traffic, which I am highly thankful for. I really recommend this tour because you really get the private, exceptional experience and an informative guide.

An unforgettable way to spend the day! Our guide, Victoria, was great! She was so friendly, knowledgeable, and just the right amount of information, so that we could enjoy the breathtaking scenery at our leisure. Fabio was our driver, he made us safe and comfortable the whole ride. We had 2 other couples in our group. Shout out to the lovely Danish couple! About an hour into the drive, we stopped for a quick coffee and a bite. Then Pompeii. Brilliant, innovative civilization! Next Positano. Stunning. Quick lunch. Final stop was Amalfi. Because it was the day after Easter, it was a vacation day in Italy, and there was a lot of traffic. It left us with 30 minutes in Amalfi, which we spent to buy limoncello goodies to bring back home. So glad we booked!

This was a great one day tour. The guides were very knowledgeable. We booked this to go to the Amalfi Coast but found the visit to Pompeii most interesting.

One of the highlights of our vacation! Victoria was an excellent guide and Franco, although scary at times, an excellent driver. Bring dramamine for the Amalfi Drive! Our guide at Pompeii was great and informative. On the way to Pompeii, our van had a flat tire. Franco noticed when we stopped for coffee and breakfast. By the time we had our coffee, the tire was changed to the temporary one and while we were visiting Pompeii, it was changed to a more durable one. It was seamless. Positano was incredible! We had an amazing lunch with lemoncello, wine and all of the local specialties overlooking the ocean, the artists and the mountain of homes. It was a long drive, but well worth the time invested. The van was comfortable and Victoria and Franco were very accommodating and helpful. We were one of two couples on the tour so we felt that we were very well attended to. Would highly recommend this tour!

we were supposed to have a semi-private tour in a van. but we ended with a private tour in a Mercedes because no one else booked. that was very nice. our driver spoke no English, but he got us there and back safe and sound. our guide was Gigi. he was really good and took very good care of us. In Pompeii he turned us over to the guide, but came along with us, even though he had been on the tour many times. We went to Positano and that was amazing!! rained off and on through the day, but that is how it was. Since we were by ourselves we asked to skip Amalfi. There was some traffic delays and the day was getting long, so we headed home to Rome. was a 14 hour day, but totally worth it.

I strongly recommend this tour. It is worth every penny. There was a total of 5 in our group and we had our own driver and tour guide. Pompeii is amazing, wow what geniuses the Italians were. The tour of the coast was breathtaking and our tour guide was just as excited maybe even more as us to be touring the area and towns. Definitely a place to stay if we return to Italy.

We had such an amazing day. The drive down was easy and our guide and driver made it fun. We stopped quickly at a pit stop loaded up on water and etc. It was very hot. Then we arrived in Pompeii where our tour guide introduced us to a great Pompeii guide. The attraction was amazing. We could not get over all the details no one would know if they did not have a guide. Then we went to the Amalfi Coast. We had an excellent lunch in Positano and our boys swam in the water and we did a little shopping. We then went to Amalfi. It was so so beautiful. We recommend this day trip if that is all you have, but if you can stay a couple days that is worth it as well!

This tour was so much fun! We didn't stay too long in any one place. The Amalfi coast and drive is definitely worth it. It is so beautiful. I would definitely recomend getting one of the lemon slushies outside of Pompeii. It was one of the highlights of my trip.

The trip was excellent. It turned out that it was just my husband and myself with a driver and a guide. We spent two hours in Pompeii with a local guide and then were taken to Positano on the Amalfi coast. It is a charming village that lives on tourism. We had lunch there and then continued to The town of Amalfi. Our driver was terrific. I'm glad we didn't have to drive ourselves on that winding road. the entire excursion was almost 12 hours.

'Semi Private' translated to PRIVATE for our tour. We ended up being the only ones in the tour and were picked up and driven to each location in a Mercedes Benz! In Pompeii we got our very own personal guide and walked through the site before the main crowds started to come in.

I definitely preferred Positano to Amalfi. More shops and more restaurants. We had lunch right on the beach - a bit pricy but worth it for the views. Got about an hour of free time in each town - would have preferred to have more time to explore in Positano but overall the tour was great!

Only thing to be aware of is the roads on the coast. They are EXTREMELY windy but the views are fantastic!

Pompeii was incredible. I learned so much, and the Amafi Coast is beautiful. I would have liked more time there.

The tour to Pompeii and the Amalfi coast was great -- we went on a small tour so there were only six of us in the van so that was nice. The tour guide in the van, however, did not provide us which a lot of information during the course of the trip, only spoke up when asked a direct question, and basically dropped us off in each location to go out on our own. So I'm not sure what the purpose of her being there was! The guide at Pompeii was absolutely wonderful -- extremely knowledgeable and humorous. I feel like we saw and learned more about Pompeii that we would have on another tour. The scenery in Positano and Amalfi were gorgeous -- I wish we would have had more time in each stop to explore, but it was a wonderful trip. Be warned though: this trip makes for a very long day so be prepared!

This tour was one of the highlights of our trip to Italy. Our driver Enzo and translator/tour guide Luigi made the trip even more memorable. The day was perfectly planned and we only wish we had more time to spend on the tour.

Long day but well worth it. Not sure why there was a trip guide as she didn't do much. The driver could had managed just fine without the help. There was a separate guide at Pompeii. The visit to the coast was lovely. Don't miss this tour- it was relaxing and a great way to spend the day away from the city.

Paulo was a great guide at Pompeii. He explained everything that we saw and gave us very good insights into life in Pompeii as well as the disaster that buried the city.
