Only way to see Pompeii and Amalfi!!
Ronald_F, Aug 2023
This IS the oNLY way to see Pompeii and Amalfi. Our guide was Mido who was incredibly helpful with our private tour and getting us to the beach in Positano. Top driver/guide and a very cool and comfortable ride!!
Engineered civilization
krishba, Aug 2023
Excellent place to see the old civilization structure, it is bit hot but worth seeing the place. If you are going private tour make sure to confirm car size, the one I had is small Benz no leg room for 4+ hour trip.
Great Day Trip
Crystal_S, July 2023
This was an amazing trip. Mido was our driver and we just loved him. Not only did he drive us to all our different destinations but was very informative. Highly recommend!
All in all, I give the tour a 7
Douglas_H, July 2023
I paid for a private tour and had to share the vehicle with a family of five. The lunch schedule was rearranged due to the restaurant being closed, I guess with all of the delays we didn't get any additional time to shop after the Pompeii tour, that was disappointing.
Response from Host, July 2023
Thanks Douglas for your feedback. you were informed that due to logistics difficulty we had only one van available and we told you about it days before the tour starts and offers you the option to share the tour with other people or to cancel and get a full refund and in case you would accept to share the tour, in return (and this's some thing you didn't mention in your review) we will give you a private guided tour for 2 hours to the archeological site of Pompei including also the admission ticket!! there were no delays as we change the reservation to another restaurant as you were on the road, so we took you directly to that place, after lunch you had a free time in Positano to explore the little village as tour description, then we head to Pompei and had a private guided tour including tickets that was not included in the price you paid!! time for shopping in Pompei were not in our itinerary or tour description and if you would ask your driver for some time in Pompei for shopping, he would give you some time and wait for you, but you didn't ask, so how would you expect us to know about it!!!
Great day!
Kelly_S, June 2023
Our driver, Matteo, was excellent and very attentive to our needs. He brought us to the most amazing lunch spot with the most stunning view. Thank you, Matteo!
Not so private after all.
Paul_F, June 2023
A private tour became a shared tour no discount. The driver took us to a restaurant which required very difficult walking despite it being clear I had issues. In all whike sone of the drive was glorious the overall result was disappointing.
Response from Host, June 2023
Thanks Paul for your feedback, we have informed you days before the tour date that for logistic reason we will have to do this tour joining another couple and in total there will be 4 passenger (you ,your wife and another couple) in a van that accommodate 8 person and as a discount we offered you a private guided tour in Pompei with tickets included, we offered you this as an option or if doesn't suit you, we can cancel the booking and send a full refund. so, we offered you a generous discount (private tour in Pompei with tickets included cost 350 euro at least) for the restaurant where we normally take our client it was closed and had to change it to another one that was 8-10 minutes walk from where the car drop you off, but you didn't say that you have a big difficulty walking, you said (when we offered the guided tour in Pompei) that if you would feel tiered of walking and can not continue the tour, you will go out and stay in the car, and we told that there's no problem with that you can stay in the car but you didn't say you have big difficulty walking. we really sorry that you feel disappointed about it, please contact us and we can send you a partial refund. Best wishes
Italy road trip— Worth it
David_J, June 2023
Guide Medo was full of stories and was helpful in informing us what to expect. Stopped to get us some coffee which helped! Very skilled driver amid a heavy traffic day. Pompei was great! Ine of the highlights of our trip to Rome Getting out of the big city and seeing countryside.
Great trip
Molly_R, June 2023
Pompeii was incredible and it was our last a little less crowded. Very kind driver/tourguide would recommend it, and amazing food and viewing spots. The regular restaurant they take you to was booked so we ended up at La Tagliata and the food was amazing. Fixed meal and $$$$ so just be aware, cash only. It was 200 euro for 4 of us but the best food in Italy we had by far. Wine was included. includes a bathroom stop.
Good time and good service
Anthony_L, May 2023
Our driver really cared about us having a good and safe experience. Did a lot of little things like buy us lemon ice and water without us asking. Good driver too.
Response from Host, May 2023
Thanks Anthony for your nice feedback, it was a pleasure for us to show around Pompei and share its history with you. enjoy the rest of your vacation and hope to see you again on one of our tours.
Pompeii, Sorrento and Positano in a day
Julie_C, May 2023
Mido our driver was great. Prompt, helpful, friendly, attentive, extra careful. We would hire him again. A ten!
Happy happy happy
Terry, May 2023
We had an awesome day 🥰 from the time our driver/tour guide MIDO picked us up at our hotel in Rome @7:30am and then dropped us off at 8:30pm he was so accommodating he knew his way around from Sorrento (Amalfi Coast) to Positano to Pompei where we was greeted by another tour guide to show us around Pompei it was a perfect day just a little pricy maybe it should have included lunch but even so we were absolutely pleased and happy with the entire day!
Response from Host, May 2023

Pompei is a must
Alan_D, Apr 2023
Rami (driver) was wonderful, as was Luara (the tour guide) at Pompei. Rainy day made sight seeing on the coast less ideal, but the trip was fantastic anyway. Pompei is amazing and highly recommend to anyone visiting this part of Italy.
Roma Xmas!
Chris_S, Jan 2023
A very fun and enjoyable tour. First time visitors with children should try this. We get to visit each of the must see places in Rome briefly. You can return to those places for a more intensive visit after that. Rome feels safe generally other than some of those more aggressive street peddlers

Fabulous day trip to Amalfi Coast and visit to Pompeii!
Roy_C, Nov 2022
Mido was our driver and extremely knowledgeable of the area and took us to many photo ops along the way to Amalfi Coast. Definitely a must see tour and we also visited Positano! Maria was our tour guide for Pompeii and I would highly recommend her services for the tour as she pointed out many things we could have missed. She's very knowledgeable.

Can't begin to express how wonderful this excursion was. Sammy and team were amazing. The views and lunch restaurant stellar. I can't recommend this highly enough. Pompeii was a must see and glad we added the private tour guide

A great way to see Amalfi, Positano and Pompeii
Mariangela_D, July 2022
We had a great day! This was the perfect day trip. Or guide and driver Mido was very knowledgeable and know all the perfect places to stop for photo ops. We went from Rome to Amalfi, stopped in Positano with enough time to shop and take a dip in the water, had lunch ata great restaurant in Sorrento with a gorgeous view overlooking Vesuvius and ended it with a great tour of Pompeii. I would highly recommend getting a your guide for Pompeii, of was great with lots of helpful information. The drive back to Rome was pretty fast and relaxing. Overall it was great day and our guides were great. I'd highly recommend this tour.

Michael_W, July 2022
The views along the Amalfi Coast are amazing. The driver was very accommodating and helpful. The tour on Pompeii was the highlight of the trip. The site was amazing but the tour guide was even more so. She clearly has an affinity for the sight and shared tons of fascinating details.

Amalfi Coast Done Right!
Susan_M, Mar 2020
Another wonderful review for Sammi and his company! The tour was beautiful and done in comfort and much pleasure! Unfortunately, we did not get a chance to see Pompeii as they closed early but we got a great history lesson anyway! Thanks Sammi for giving us a great time!
