    Wind along the stunning coastal landscape, with sweeping views of the Mediterranean. Stop first in Positano, where you'll learn the history behind the pastel-colored town from your driver before taking off for an hour of free time.

    Worst experience ever!
    GABRIEL_N
    , Jul 2019
    So it started "well". The driver and guide (which looked like two hangover teenagers) arrived late but then the trip to Positano was better than expected as the guide provided several details on the city which we weren't expecting. Time was enough, then we went to Amalfi which was also fine. Afterwards the nightmare began... they started looking annoyed, the driver moved through the highly dangerous roads of the amalfi coast as if we were in the world rally championship. Once in Pompeii, the guide was literally walking around just reading the signs with no added value (while other guides were describing lots of interesting facts). The trip back was even worse, we even thought of getting down the bus. Avoid it...

    If I had to do it over, I would do the 1/2 day your to Pompeii and a separate full day tour to the Amalfi coast. The tour to The Amalfi coast was too short and because we weren't many doing that part we were sent with a driver that was more like a taxi. The driver didn't say a word!

    This tour was very good although we didn't stop at Positano as there was nowhere to park up. Amalfi was beautiful if very small and 2 hours here was more than enough whilst Pompeii on the other hand took our breath away. An absolute must and the guide was brilliant.

    Wow, what a fantastic tour of the 2 biggest wonders in Italy. Our guide Francesco is extremely personable with very strong knowledge of the Amalfi Coast and generally of Pompeii. Francesco handed us off to an expert Pompeii guide that gave me a greater appreciation of the rich history and common day to day routine that I could never get from a National Geographic documentary. Positano was beautiful and Francesco's passion for his work made the trip fun! It's not cheap, but you certainly get your money's worth and more.

    Liked the tour as we were only spending 1 1/2 days in Sorrento, and really wanted to see the key highlights in the area. This tour covers the Amalfi coast as well as Pompeii, and was one of the few tours we found that covered both aspects, so was ideal.

    This was our first trip. We were picked up at hotel in a small mini bus only four of us. Which was great. The drive along the coast road gave us some amazing and beautiful sights. However was a bit scary as it very close to the edge. Pompeii was amazing. Good shoes are a must as the whole area is cobles and rocks. We only done 4 hours that was enough as it was so hot . Would certainly recommend it

    It took an email no reply and three phone calls to finally find out where and what time we were to be picked up for our tour. Because there were only four people signed up for this particular tour we basically had a taxi ride air conditioned along the Amalfi coast with no commentary from our driver who had very limited English. We only had 2 hrs in Amalfi and 1 hr in Positano where we had a quick lunch. It would have been nice to know some of the history of Amalfi and Positano which I thought we were getting. Again a taxi ride to Pompeii where we met our tour guide Roberta who was very knowledgeable about the history of Pompeii and we thoroughly enjoyed this part of our trip.

    All in all a great day! I was staying in Sorrento so wanted to be able to visit Positano and Amalfi with ease in one day. 1 hour in positano and 2 hours in amalfi is plenty. They are beautiful places but small enough to get a good feel of the place in a short time. I had been looking forward to visiting Pompeii all my life. The tour itself and time at Pompeii was short 2 hours and really just brushed the edges of what there is to see there. If I go again I would probably like at least another hour or two there an more in depth commentary on the area.

    This full day event is well worth it, you will see many sites and towns that you could not see on your own using public buses. Plus you get a guided tour though the ruins of Pompeii, this is a must cause you would not want to just wonder around Pompeii without a guide.

    The trip was beautiful and the views were well worth it! Loved the boat ride you can take for the additional 15 euros and the guided tour of Pompeii extra fee was fantastic! Would have liked more info and a guided tour from our guide in the 2 towns or on the bus rather than just free time. Overall it was worth it.

    Overall OK but tour is not as described. The order changed so Pompeii was in the am. We were then returned from the bus to a mini bus in Sorrento for a trip to Amalfi coast that was longer than advertised, 12 hours not 8. No time for lunch anywhere. Poor planning / communication by tour organisers
