This tour was the highlight of my trip. It was amazing how much we experienced in one day and I wouldn’t change a thing. The tour guides were very friendly and well organized. Vesuvius was a great way to start the day. Lunch at the winery was a perfect way to take a break and the food was delicious. We learned so much during our tour of Pompeii. Getting picked up and returned back to our hotel made things so easy. I would highly recommend this tour and would do it again if I return.

This was a great trip! Everything was right on time from the pick up in Positano to the return home. Our captain and first mate were excellent ! I wish I could remember their names. It was the perfect amount of time on the water and on the Island of Capri. We were served champagne, snacks, sandwiches and limoncello!!!!!! Couldn’t ask for any more or better company! Thank you for making this trip so much fun! Kim & Harold
