Pay for the hotel upgrade and you won’t be sorry - our upgrade had us at the Imperial Tratamonte (restaurant view of ocean was simply gorgeous!).
We would highly recommend paying for the highest category hotel.

Short Tour but nice
Frank_A, May 2023
This tour is a great way to get a feel for Sorrento and Capri. The tour guides were very accommodating and helped us since one of our party hurt her knee 1 day before the tour and could not keep up with the group. The Hotel Michelangelo was nice. This hotel was only one of several used by the group. The weather did not permit us to do the full boat ride or the Blue Grotto, which allowed a little more free time on Capri
Good tour to Pompeii, Sorrento and Capri
Kelly_M, May 2023
Overall the tour was very good. The tour guides were excellent. Our tour in Pompeii was super. The two things that weren't good was the lack of coordination on the pick up time on the first day. A driver showed up at our hotel at 6:30am in the morning and no one from the tour company told us he was coming and when. The second issue was at the end of the first day in Sorrento we had to sit on a bus for an extra 1.5 hours as it dropped people off at 5 different hotels. It was long, slow and frustrating as the roads in Sorrento are narrow and busy. It would have been a much better experience if the they had booked everyone across one or two hotels.
Excellent tours. Very...
Scott_H, May 2023
Excellent tours. Very well organized. I would definitely recommend this two day tour. So many fond memories.
great tour and trip
Javier_V, Apr 2023
great tour as described. logistic was very nice. Tours and busses always availebale. Hotel was lovely
Tours were great, food was OK.
Valerie_L, Oct 2022
I was nervous going into this overnight tour experience because of the amount of activities. With that said, I gave four stars because of the following: The lunch at Pompeii was OK. I would rather have had the free time to go and explore another food option. The tour itself was fantastic! We were transferred to a different bus since our trip included the overnight in Sorrento. Unfortunately one of the participants didn’t show up at the bus, which caused a two hour delay. I question the way this was handled by the tour agency and I do not fault the person that was heading the tour group. She did all she could to make a bad situation better but it did impact our time in Sorrento. We only were able to spend the night there. No free time before dinner and no sunset to enjoy. We opted out of the dinner because we wanted to be able to explore Sorrento at night. We just didn’t have the time that was planned as booked. We had a quick breakfast at the hotel before heading to Capri. The blue grotto was awesome but the lunch was OK. Again, I would have preferred to venture on my own for lunch. There was not too much time to be had on our own before having to leave and head back to Rome. Our bus guide to and from Rome, Mateo, was awesome! Our Pompeii tour guide was fabulous, and our Capri tour guide, Sasha, was fabulous! As I mentioned before, I was disappointed that because of one person, we lost two hours of tour time that we paid for. The agency needs to evaluate how they handle situations like that. It turned out the person continued forward to Sorento and was there almost the entire time. As a consolation. The tour guide, Valeria, requested a bottle of Prosecco be delivered to our hotel room. Again, Valeria had no control over the situation and did her very best given the circumstances.
Team work makes a dream trip!
MaryJane_R, Sept 2022
OMG what a day! Capri is beautiful! I stressed myself out as my phone fell out of my purse on the transfer from the hotel to the port to catch the ferry. I realized I didn’t have it when getting off the ferry. A huge shout out to Viator network. (Thank you Sascha, Valeria, Rosella and Andrea +transfer driver) they found it and were able to get it from Serrano to a rest stop outside of Rome where I got it back , passing it from trip guide to trip guide! Now that is communication and teamwork 😊 Thank you for going the extra mile and helping a traveler out!
Pompeii and Sorrento was great-the rest were okay
Vashine_K, June 2022
I really enjoyed the Pompeii and Sorrento portion of this tour! The rest I felt was a bit rushed. The tour guides were all great and the arranged food was also not bad. I did feel like there weren't much flexibility or freetime to explore the areas on our own. The hotel we stayed at was very clean and was very comfortable. It also had other amenities which I felt like I didn't have time to properly enjoy.
Amazing experience
Kathleen_F, Oct 2021
This was the perfect trip with amazing guides. Everything was timed to perfection. The knowledge of the guides and attention to detail made this an unforgettable experience.
Incredible from beginning to end!
RoseEllen_F, July 2021
This tour was amazing from beginning to end. Our guide Rosella was incredible , kind & fun. Then the guide through the Pompeii ruins Fabiano was so incredibly knowledgeable about every bit of what we saw it made the experience breathtaking & unforgettable. Both guides looked out for us incredibly. Our stay in Sorrento was fantastic. We had a delicious dinner & then a fantastic buffet breakfast (Not a continental one). The staff at the Michelangelo hotel were very kind. We were than met by our next guide Sascha who took us on a ferry & then we got to go in the amazing Blue Grotto cave & then shop & eat in Capri on the cliff overlooking the sea. Sascha took such VERY good care of us the entire time making sure we were comfortable with every aspect of the tour. When we couldn't walk anymore he even got us a bus ride back to the ferry that he didn't have to do. This entire tour was incredible & if I was to come back to Italy again I would actually do this one again. This group of tour guides were the absolute best of all our tours & you could feel the genuine care in each of them for us & for what they do.

My husband and I did this 2 day tour and found the organisation very lacking we arrived in Pompeii and had an excellent tour but got back to the bus to find our luggage outside and that we were being transferred to another bus. 30mins later this was done only to be dropped off at another hotel and told that another bus would pick us up and left by ourselves. finally at destination and sorrento beautiful and hotel gorgeous . capri the next day and was off to the grotto. they transferred people from other day tours to our boat so it meant there was no room for my husband on a boat so they had to over load it and made the experience very uncomfortable with 5 people on a boat that takes 4. then back to capri and we seem to spend most of the day waiting for other groups 1/2 day, full day tours to join us eating into our free time. ferry back to naples and new guide who had no idea who was who., Locations great even though lunch stop on Capri had no view whatsoever. food ok, tour guides did their best. but organisation very very lacking. maybe on 3 hour bus trip from Rome they could have mentioned the transfers to other buses instead of confusion in a carpark.
Response from Host, Nov 2019
Dear Guests, thank you for this contribution after attending our Limoncello two-day tour to Pompeii, Sorrento and Capri. We're sorry you got a perception of confusion during the transfers, we appreciate your viewpoint. Our best selling products (the Limoncello being one of those) are 'group tours' and every day we have the privilege to accompany a big number of travelers from all over the world to Italy's main destination in a comfortable and affordable way. The tour you booked is actually a merge of two other tours, this is the reason why you had to change bus (some people would return to Rome after Pompeii, for instance, while other people would continue to Capri and toward the Sorrentine Coast). That said, your review is precious to us and helps us monitor the guest experience. We'll do all we can to make these operations smoother and have our staff of tour leaders prepare the clients for those in a more organized way. Kind regards, the Gray Line I Love Rome Team
Wow!! Amazing tour! Worth every penny spent.

Gorgeous places but..
DONNA_P, Sept 2019
Places visited were amazing but a delay from Pompeii caused lost hours in Sorrento :( could have stopped a bit in Naples too..guides were informative and mostly cheerful
Response from Host, Sept 2019
Dear Guest, so glad that you liked the places visited, Pompeii and the Sorrentine Coast are real gems, absolute must-sees in Italy. We apologize for the delay you mention, we'll do our best to reduce the impact of such inconvenience on future tours. We appreciate your feedback, thanks for reaching out! Kind regards, the Gray Line I Love Rome Team
Awesome Tour
Raza_R, Sept 2019
Great scenery, well designed schedule, nice hotel..... Sorrento and Capri are very beautiful locations and must be visited.
We loved our South Italy tour!
Elizabeth B, Aug 2019
We loved everything about our South Italy tour! Pompeii was fascinating, Sorrento was fun to visit, and Capri was beautiful. We would highly recommend paying for the highest category hotel. We stayed in a beautiful hotel that overlooked the Bay. We were a quick walk to the heart of Sorrento and we enjoyed the evening walking around the town. The guides were great! Even though we didn't get to travel to the Blue Grotto because of weather conditions, our guide made our trip to the island of Capri a great one! We hope to travel here again!
Outstanding experience.
anna_o, July 2019
Excellent tour guides who were very knowledgeable, friendly, and welcoming. Hotel was beautiful we plan to go back to Sorrento and stay again. Food was delicious. Treated like royalty. Highly recommend. Would have booked the 2 nights if we had longer vacation.

Amazing Tour!
Amanda_F, May 2019
Everything about this tour was excellent, from the beautiful Volvo tour bus, to the friendly, hospitable, and knowledgeable guides. Pompeii was unbelievable to experience in person. Sorrento was beautiful! Pay for the hotel upgrade and you won’t be sorry - our upgrade had us at the Imperial Tratamonte (restaurant view of ocean was simply gorgeous!). Capri and Anna Capri were both breathtaking. The blue grotto was a fun adventure! This tour was my favorite!
Totally loved this tour, so...
