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.

Absolutely amazing. First they were on time at our hotel. We were the only ones on the tour so it felt super special and luxurious. Both our guide Dina and the driver Roberto were super friendly, accommodating and knowledgeable. Pompeii was awesome, great informative tour and great food. We then continued to Amalfi coast which was gorgeous. Second stop at Positano, such a cute town. We opted to walk around and eat on the way instead of sitting at a restaurant the whole time, best decision I think because we got to see more. We stayed there for about two hours and then took the boat to Amalfi. Amalfi is tiny but very cute. Definitely get the limoncello sorbet, delicious. We were only at Amalfi for 30min and headed to our bus which was waiting for us at Amalfi. A few hours later got back to the hotel happily exhausted. Dina also gave us really good recommendations for food and the best gelato in Rome. All were delicious. Would definitely recommend this tour, worth every penny.

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!

spectacular a beautiful place ... the movie was shot. under the Tuscan sun ... although it is the region of the campaign
