We got picked up at hour hotel right on time. The vehicle was very comfortable. They had to pick up two other people in their hotel so it was just the four of us. This is the reason I chose this particular tour as it was max six people and also offered pick up and drop off. It cost a lot more than the other tour operators but it is easier to just be picked up and dropped off. We stopped by at a service station to get coffee and breakfast and then drove all the way down to Pompeii and the guide Chiara was giving us some information along the way. After Pompeii we headed down to the Amalfi coast. There was traffic so it kind of took longer to get to Positano when we got there a quick walk down to the beach had lunch had some gelato and then off to the boat to go to Amalfi town. Did some souvenir shopping then back to the van. It was all fast but we had fun. The guide looked after us very very well. I was hesitant to book this tour as it wasn’t cheap but it was worth it. Glad we did it.

Pompeii is a town located in the plains at the eastern slope of Vesuvius, to the right of the lower reaches of the river Sarno. One of the largest archaeological areas in the world and Unesco World Heritage Site, it is a popular tourist destination, also thanks to the presence of the Shrine of Our Lady of the Rosary. At the archaeological site, you'll find that the ancient Roman city buried by the sudden eruption of Vesuvius in 79 AD has been brought back to light. The rain of ash and lava and the resulting thick layer of dust have crystallized, preserving Pompeii for centuries. Brought to the surface, Pompeii is the most visited archaeological site in the world. Afterwards, you'll visit Amalfi, an internationally renowned tourist destination and famous for its incomparable beauty and mild climate. The town on the southern coast of the Sorrento Peninsula, known as the Amalfi Coast, is e...
Very small group of 4 so we had the guide's attention to ourselves. He was a local and had insight on the history of the area. He was also prompt and very accommodating.

From pick-up to drop off it was a great experience. Our guide was on time, friendly and knowledgable. We 1st went to Pompei where we were provided with a guide who's been on the dig since the beginning. Hector (archeologist), was so nice and jovial, the 4 people from our van met others from Get Your Guide for the tour (about 15 people total). Everyone was friendly and happy. There was someone from GetYourGuide there to greet each of the vans and make sure we had everything we needed. Next our guide Fabio (archeologist) and driver took us to Amalfi for a great lunch (not included in pricing) and then a ferry ride to Positano (also not included). After mini-tours/shopping of both these towns, we headed back to Rome. Fabio knows a lot about the region and history of the area including the amazing church in Amalfi and he happily shared his knowledge. He kept making sure we were happy and didn't need anything.
Great full day trip from Rome to check out Pompeii and the Amalfi coast. We were lucky to be alone on the tour and when we asked for some changes to the timetable the guide and driver were very accommodating. Transportation is great although we hit some traffic. We also took a boat from Positano to Amalfi (best photos) which was not obvious in the itinerary. Not included in the price but quite cheap. Overall experience was very enjoyable and highly recommended if you want to get our of Rome for a day.
Our trip guide Fabio was fabulously educated in archeology of Italy as.well as playing in a cool international heavy metal band - so cool too. The driver was safe and did an outstanding job on the mountain roads. The guide Hector they picked for Pompei was the most experienced and only didnone tour a day - so much extra knowledge. The topper was the boat ride from Positano to Amalfi - outstanding scenery!
Wonderful trip, highly recommended! Everything was on time and smoothly organised. Pompeii is definitely a must see and in Positan we had an opportunity enjoy some stunning views! Safe drive through all serpantines!
Great driver, very courteous, very knowledgeable of the entire areas visited
