    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.

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.

Such an amazing, knowledgeable tour! Had a bit of rain and got a bit wet but it was all part of a great experience (maybe pack an umbrella as they don’t sell them inside. Good for sun or rain!). We dropped luggage at the entry of the Pompeii site and all was good. Thanks again!

We absolutely loved our guide! Ricardo was very informative and passionate about Pompeii. Even at the end of the tour he suggested things to see that he thought was interesting. You’ll be lucky to have him as a guide!

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!

Ornela was very good in explaining every thing to us, and both her and the drivers were very friendly.
