Had a great day! We were picked up on time and the day ran on schedule. Our driver Giancarlo was friendly and knowledgeable on our tour of the Amalfi coast. We had a different guide at Pompei who was also super. Highly recommend this tour - the small group size was worth the extra cost!
Off-Seaon Positano is CLOSED! Paid for entire experience

The tour company was great to work with for the overall tour, I would use again for other tours. Happy with the driver - very prompt. Happy with tour guide at Pompeii.
Don’t do this tour during off-season months. You are paying for an hour stop at a place that is completely shut down. This tour should have been removed as an option for December. Paid full price to not get the real Positano experience. It is a Rip-off paying for the extra stop during off-season.
Dear Client ,
Thank you for leaving your comment on the tour .
I understand you were disappointed as shops were not open in Positano during your visit . This is common in many seasonal locations, but nonetheless we visit these places because , in spite of the majority of shops being closed , these locations are most sought after because of the beauty of the place from a natural and architectural point of view .
I'm glad you've enjoyed the tour of Pompeii and that you find good the overall experience of the tour led by our english speaking driver/tour escort .
Yours sincerely , Monica
This was a long and full day with lots of time in the car, but I got to see the Amalfi Coast (including spending some time in Positano) and I got to visit Pompeii with a very knowledgeable tour guide. Our driver, Achille, was great! He was friendly, fun, entertaining and informative. The food at the included lunch was good and located in a really nice setting. The tour was just as advertised and it was a good day!
This was a great tour. Our driver, Paolo, was superb at getting our small group out of Rome quickly and safely. Our drive was pleasant. Paolo was friendly and knowledgable. Our guide in Pompeii was the famous Gaetano. Gaetano was simply outstanding! We were extremely fortunate to have him there with us. Gaetano put more love and passion into this tour than any tour I've ever been on. Simply outstanding.
There are better versions of this tour, especially at this price

Like others have said, our tour guide was distracted and on his phone the entire day. He dictated messages and read texts while he was driving. He didn't speak a word the entire 3 hour drive back, but it often seemed he was about to nod off. The tour was only semi-private so our family of 6 was stuffed into the car with two strangers. Our guide spoke well enough English to tell us some memorized facts, but had a hard time answering questions. In Pompeii he shoved us off on another tour guide who rushed us through the tour so much, we missed a bunch of the things we really wanted to see (like the brothels and the casts). The destinations were amazing, but I've found many other tours for cheaper and with better reviews. Plus private! I'd check out Rome-Limousine if you're interested in this tour. Alessandro is a much more attentive guide.
Dear Client ,
Thank you for your feedback . By reading your review , I have mixed feelings though and I can not understand why you have chosen our company , giving the fact that you are so precise in mentioning the other company and also the driver by his name . We've been operating this tour for almost 2 decades , all our driver/guides are trained prior to start doing our tour and all know the rules and consequences for breaking the rules . One of those includes using the phone without ear buds and phone calls have to be service calls at times necessary for organizing visits and /or letting the restaurant know the time we arrive . As for Pompeii , the sites mentioned are among the ones featured in our tour at all times . Also because the brothels are located not too far away from where we stop to see typical roman villas and also roman " shops " etc . Of course it is impossible for me to give a precise answer , without knowing the date you took the tour , and I can only say that our drivers are well trained to do our tour , and in Pompeii we always have the same guides doing our tours .
We traveled from our hotel in Rome down to the Amalfi Coast and had such a great time with our guide Achilleus. The whole trip from start to finish was so wonderful. It was raining when we left and our guide did his absolute best to make the most of our trip. He rearranged our route and we were able to see everything and even the sun came out. The coastal towns were an amazing sight. Positano is a beautiful quaint little town that I can’t wait to visit again. The Pompeii ruins were a delight and wonder to see. Again we had a great tour guide there also. Our driver was also very safe on the roads and very prompt in his arrival. I would highly recommend this excursion.
