Nice tour for Pompeii & Amalfi Coast aficionados
I’m obviously in the minority here, as 5 stars seems to be the norm. However, a few observations which led me to award only 4 stars.

Pompeii and the Amalfi coast are well worth the 7 1/2 hours you will spend in a smaller bus. The entire trip is roughly 13 hours, so this tour is pushing the envelope for a day tour. There is obviously good demand for this tour as our bus had the full contingent of 23-24 people.

As older travelers, my wife and I highly value bathroom breaks which were minimally adequate ( 1 on the trip down, & 1 on return).

Transportation is not on a full-size bus, so it’s somewhat cosy. I’m 6’3” so I’m oversized, height-wise. This is an observation only. If you’re larger than me, it might be tight for you.

The tour guide who accompanied us was good, (very friendly & informative) as was the guide for Pompeii.

My only other comment was that lunch was had when we reached
Pompeii around 2:15pm. It might be prudent to bring some snacks, although there were some options at the rest stops.

All in all, a nice tour if Pompeii and Amalfi are one your bucket list.

Pretty good
Nov. 2021 • Couples
Mixed feelings about this tour. Everything was on time and well-organized as far as the meet-up and departure. We spent about 3 hours in Pompeii which I felt was too long. That meant we only had an hour in Naples and kind of had to rush through the 2nd part of the tour. Additionally, our tour facilitator “Angie” was very nice and friendly but it was hard to absorb the things she was telling us because she would jump from subject to subject very randomly. There really wasn’t a good flow or structure in passing information relative to where we were along the way. After a very long day and on the drive home when everyone wanted to rest she continued taking almost the whole way back which was kind of annoying. It was night time and they also had all the lights on in the bus which made it very hard to sleep. Overall, seeing Pompeii was an incredible experience and must not be missed on a visit to Italy. I felt the tour was a good value for the money and would have been 5-star had the aforementioned suggestions for improvement been implemented.

Highlight of my trip to Rome - thank you Emiliano!
Nov. 2021 • Solo
I have done many guided tours in the past but I have NEVER been satisfied as much as I have been with this one. Italy itself surely has many many things to offer but all these can mean so much more if there is a guide who knows how to present them to people's hearts. Emiliano is that kind of a person - 100 % professional, knowledgeable, organised but at the same time very easy going, patient and humorous. This tour guide even managed to turn a long bus ride into an amazing Rome-Naples-Pompeii-Vesuvius-Italy story telling experience and took his time for each and every one individual, giving us the the time to ask him questions. Consequently he was able to provide us with excellent tips regarding museums, food, transport, anything we wanted to know ... If it means anything, he deserves to be awarded. Greetings from Slovenia!

Pompeii unparalleled!
Oct. 2021
Roberto has elevated the role of tour guide to that of teacher, artist and sage. He presented much more than I ever expected from prep to enter Pompeii to where to get the best lunch deal and more. He slipped effortlessly from English to Italian as he related story after story about Pompeii, Naples, and Vesuvius. He provided a map that prepared us to enter a vast city and gave some advice and background info that proved invaluable. He shared myths and legends, as well as cultural insights, certainly more than required. It is a joy to travel with someone who is knowledgeable and passionate about their subject. I owe this gentleman a huge tip. Next time, Roberto!

*Would also love to give a shout out to Julio, the driver. He was excellent, even when I suspected he was swearing in Italian. I felt safe with him doing the driving.

Great experience
Oct. 2021
This was a great tour to Pompeii/Vesuvius and back. You are left to guide yourself or hire a local guide in Pompeii (very easy to do on location), but our tour guide Andrea gave us a wealth of information on the bus ride there and back. He also left us to sleep a bit since the bus ride leaves early, but he kept us entertained with history and anecdotes when we hit some traffic on the way back to Rome. Great tour!

Good tour, long trip.
Oct. 2021
I recommend this tour if you want to see Positano and Pompeii but not Mt Vesuvius up close and personal. Our tour guide was Fantastic, very knowledgably and very talkative for the long bus ride. I am sorry but can not remember his name.
Our Pompeii tour guide was AMAZING. Can not remember his name but he had done some time digging there for his degree.
The only thing I personally did not like about this tour was the short amount of time in Pompeii and the extremely long bus ride, over 12+hours.
Positano was beautifully and majestic sight to see.

Awesome Tour with Roberto (Rob)!!
Oct. 2021
Pompeii and Mount Vesuvius were bucket list things for me to do and I am super excited that I got to do it this way. The highlight of this tour was our guide Rob (Roberto). He told so many amazing stories for both locations and some additional info that prepared us for exploring all of the sites. I was also very grateful for the MAPS that he provided to us as that prepared us for everything we would explore at own pace. Overall, a truly amazing experience and if you can, ask for Roberto, he's great!
