Tour guide was amazing Took us everywhere we wanted to go he treated us very well It was a great day
Unrealistic itinerary. Not recommended.
Dan_L, Sep 2022
Our driver was good, the car was clean and comfortable, But due to traffic we spent 4.5 hours in the car and only 2 hours seeing the sights - 1 hour Positano and 1 hour in Sorrento. We did not have time to see Pompeii! Terrible tour.
Brilliant day! Fantastic tour guides, Italian hospitality at its finest!
Phyllis_C, Sep 2022
We knew visiting 2 UNESCO world heritage sites in a single day was ambitious. The expert guidance of Salvatore was critical to this successful trip! Thank you for the most memorable day! Impeccable service! I can’t thank you enough!
A Wonderful Tour with Alfonso!
Jeremy_P, Aug 2022
This tour was a highlight of our trip in no small part because of Alfonso's outstanding work as our tour guide. Alfonso customized the experience for us by getting us to the Amalfi Coast early in the day to beat the worst of the traffic and maximize our time for sightseeing. He always found the most picturesque spots to stop and allow us to enjoy the amazing scenery and organized a great lunch for us so we could sample some delicious and authentic Napoli food. He even serenaded us with some Italian songs while navigating the windy roads of the Amalfi Coast--an impressive feat for sure! Touring with Alfonso was like spending the day with a good friend and we hope to see him again someday!
Listen Lady I’m just a driver not a tour guide
Mitch_M, Jun 2022
We booked a private tour with skip the lines passes. We got a driver only. He was very nice but when we asked him questions he said to my fiancé “Listen Lady I’m just a driver not a tour guide”. This was our 3rd private tour we booked with Viator in a week. The other 2 were perfect. This was like we hired a taxi. We asked about our skip the line passes and he had no idea what we were talking about. Again, he was very nice but it was like we got into a taxi and had to tell him where we wanted to go. It was extremely disappointing since we had no idea where to go cause it was supposed to be a guided private tour of the Amalfi coast.
Response from Host, Jun 2022
Dear Mitch, Thank you for your message. We apologize you didn't enjoy our tour. As you have seen in the booking offer you have booked an option with driver only plus skip the line tickets. Our drivers al local people who speak English. Of course they don't have always all the answer because they are not licensed guide, but this was what you booked. Of course we ask to each clients where they want go because we want try to deliver a tailored experience. Many clients after made some research they want see a place rather then another and we try to make all happy. Anyway, if could help to make you happy, please reach us at and we will try to refund you something on what you have paid. We like to make all customers happy. Best regards, Domenico
Day trip to Pompeii, Sorrento and Positano
Rayanne_G, Jun 2022
Beautiful day driving along the coast. Roberto was a great driver and guide. Not sure how he was able to maneuver through the skinny streets. The van was very comfortable and clean. Thoroughly enjoyed our day!
Awesome day
kelly_n, Jun 2022
We had a great day visiting positano, Salerno and Pompeii with Alberto. Great shopping, the best pizza and fabulous sites.
Best tour for cruise ship excursion!!
Heather_N, May 2022
Alfonso is hands down the BEST tour guide!!!!! So fun, knowledgeable and professional! Highly recommended this tour!!!!
Best Day Ever with Alfonso
Daniel_Z, May 2022
I would love to leave a review for Alfonso and our excursion with him today. We had the most enjoyable day with him touring Sorrento and Pompeii. He took the time to explain the region and show us the best places for pictures as local foods. We had lunch at a restaurant that was recommended by him that was truly amazing and the highlight of our day. We enjoyed all the facts and information he shared with is about the region and would come back to have another day with Alfonso alone. Thank you!
Wonderful tour!

We had an absolutely wonderful day touring Sorrento, Positano, and Pompeii with our guide, Alfonso. He started by giving us a very interesting history on Naples as we left the city, which led to wonderful stories and facts as we passed through his hometown of Castellamarre, and finally a rich history on the beautiful cities of Sorrento and Positano. We had plenty of time to enjoy each, and Alfonso was such a great driver on what have to be among the most challenging roads and driving conditions in the world. If you are the type that gets car sick, I recommend taking Dramamine or some other type of motion sickness medicine before the tour. After leaving Positano we ate lunch in the foothills of Mt. Vesuvius at a gorgeous family-owned winery at Alfonso’s recommendation, and finally met a tour guide he had arranged for us at Pompeii…our last stop of the day. Our family of 7 were all thrilled, and each of us would highly recommend this tour!
Incredible All Day Tour and Fun Guide
Rhonda L, Nov 2019
We had a full day traveling to Sorrento, Positano, the Amalfi Coast and Pompeii. Our driver/guide Alfonso took our party of 4 to all the best places. He was fun and informative, giving us a real taste of Italy. Would highly recommend this all day private tour.
Best day of a 20 day tour of Europe
Alan_H, Nov 2019
We (2 couples) arranged a private tour of the Amalfi Coast and Pompeii. The driver was waiting for us and was reasonably fluent in English. He has been doing this tour for several years and pointed out numerous interesting points, and new how to avoid the worst of the crowds. Actually there were no crowds to speak of along the coast. It is beautiful (perhaps enchanting). The driver had connections at a restaurant that gave us an open window table overlooking the buildings below (near the top of the mountain) and into the bay. The food was excellent. We finished with a personally guided tour of Pompeii. The guide was very knowledgeable. I will admit having seen a Roman City ruins in Israel, Pompeii wasn't that special (but at least we can say we were there). To get us back to our cruise ship on time, he managed to give us an adventure ride back that reminded us we were in Italy. A delightful day.
Great day in Sorrento and Amalfi Coast
MN2IA, Nov 2019
Dodi picked us up at the cruise port in Naples, holding a sign with our name on it. There were 4 of us on this private tour. We were able to adjust our itinerary for the day upon meeting Dodi. We requested to spend more time seeing Sorrento and the Amalfi Coast, as well as a little time in Naples, as opposed to going to Pompeii. This was our last port of 10 on our cruise and we were frankly a little wore out, so our request was to have a more low-key day with still seeing amazing sites. Dodi was great to accommodate us! This worked out great for our available time. Dodi took us to a great lunch spot in Sorrento with an amazing view! We had a a fantastic day visiting Positano, the drive along the Amalfi Coast, lunch and time for shopping in Sorrento. Dodi went out of his way to tell us myths and folklore about this region of Italy. Upon returning to Naples, we had requested to have pizza. His first recommendation had not yet opened for the day, so he got us pizza from another restaurant - excellent! He returned us to the ship in a timely manner! We would definitely recommend Dodi!

We could not have asked for a better tour Alfonso was so knowledgeable about the entire area he went way beyond what we expected. Suggested a great restaurant overlooking the coast, actually ordered our tickets for Pompeii so we wouldn't have to wait in line. In addition to knowing the area he also told us about some legends that were quite entertaining. And as an added bonus he sings!! We all ended up singing Italian songs on our way back, we have taken quite a few Via tours and have never been disappointed but this one was outstanding. Thank you ALFONSO
Alfonzo was the Best!
Lori_R, Oct 2019
The beautiful Amalfi Coast could not have been the same with out Alfonzo. Alfonzo picked us up at the port, drove us from Naples down to Sorento where we toured a Lemon cello factory. Then brought us safely up to Positano, and to a family restaurant with a table overlooking the beautiful Amalfi Coast. Then over to Pompeii. Everything went like clockwork. Alfonzo is super sweet, very knowledgeable and kept us entertained all Day. Thanks, Alfonzo for making our day one of the best experiences in our travels. God bless Alfonzo, his family and his hard work!
Naples Tour needs major improvement
RAYMOND_S, Oct 2019
From the client Mr. Raymond Solano, October 13, 2019 tour date Naples trip to Pompeii was exceptional..great guide. However we have a complaint with the tour companies vehicle . Is was old and dirty and beyond its useful life. I noticed and reordered multiple engine warning ⚠️ on his dashboard. Also the entire poor suspension made for very uncomfortable ride. The driver told us he was leaving the company shortly and we can understand why. He was very helpful in-spite of the horrific traffic jam that caused us to scramble to get the last train out of Naples and pay for another set of tickets as the train office was closed ($107 euro) and our train was leaving in 5 min. Also the Driver told us we only had one hour in Positano because the owner refused to pay 10$ for additional parking I would appreciate if you can negotiate an appropriate discount for the misrepresentation of a premium vehicle for the price we were charged. I have pictures to back up my claim and prepared to share them.
Response from Host, Oct 2019
Greetings from Feel Naples. Thank you for sharing your comments with us. We apologize for what happened. We had to use a spare vehicle because on the day of the tour the regular vehicle did not work. Luckily we always have a spare vehicle for such cases but because of the high season and many trips operated everyday, we didn't care much about that spare minivan and that is why it was not working at 100%. Regarding the 10€ that is not our policy. We always accommodate customers needs, but I think has just been a driver idea. Dudi is a new driver. Very good guy but he just to work with people in the past that didn't have same of our policy. That is why he thought say that was not possible to spend more time in Positano. Anyway, we do understand that for both situations we didn't deliver our best tour to you, and we would like you to contact us through viator because we would like to find a solution to make you happy and offer a partial refund for your tour. Thank you for your understanding and look forward to hearing from you. Best regards, Domenico
10/10 experience

Our family would highly recommend this excursion. We were picked up promptly at the scheduled time once we arrived to the port. Alfonso was our driver and we could not have asked for someone better. He was knowledgeable, fun, and truly made our trip. Positano and Sorrento were absolutely beautiful and Pompeii is full of so much rich history. Alfonso kept us on track and we were able to see everything we wanted to with enough time. We also stopped for the best lunch we had our entire trip. All seven of us could not stop talking about this amazing day. It was worth every penny.
Pompeii and Amalfi Coast - Private Tour
Dream93106, Oct 2019
We had jolly ALFONSO as our guide, a lot of interactions between him and the group, always on discussion, question and answer kind of thing and singing "VOLARE" along the way. There was no dull moment. He made efficient use of our very limited time, was able to visit the highlights of Sorrento, Positano and Pompeii. We went the opposite way where the usual tourist buses go thus, it was less crowded. Navigating the streets of Positano, we realized that we made the right choice of choosing the private tour on a small van, with a driver that knows the place like at the back of his hand. We would like also to take this opportunity to express our profound gratitude to Alfonso for making our trip worthwhile.

There was a lot to see and seemed to lack depth. The guide and the group had some difficulty in communication.
Nothing special
KAREN_B, Oct 2019
The driver had no personally. We were a party of 8. He spoke to the two people that set in the front seats. But the rest of us couldn't hear what he was saying even after asking him to speak up. This spoiled our experience.
