A wonderful experience!
MaryKelly_P, Nov 2022
Antonino was superb. Added a lot of personal touches and very informative . Learned so much. Highly recommended
Great problem solver! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!
Mindy_D, Oct 2022
SO GOOD!! He got a flat tire at the beginning of the day, but he was extremely fast in solving the problem & getting us back on schedule. He felt horrible, but life happens sometimes. There was 6 of us all together & we ranged in age between 9 up to 74. He took us everywhere & we got to see so much. What I really loved was seeing how kind he was to other drivers & people. Very kind & would HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!
Skip Pompeii-go to Sorrento and Positano.
Robert_W, Oct 2022
Skip Pompeii and enjoy Sorrento and Positano. Pompeii is very difficult to walk, lots and lots of uneven volcanic rocks and very crowded. Positano is also very steep but beautiful-just take your time walking down to the beach area. Lots of Shopping in Sorrento with beautiful views!!
Excellent tour of the Amalfi Coast.

Tony was so courteous and respectful! He instantly put us at ease with his easy smile and relaxed personality. We were blown away by his breadth of knowledge and ability to answer any questions we had about history or geology! He was an expert guide, leading us to the most interesting parts of Pompeii and allowing us time to explore Sorento. We enjoyed every moment of our time with him!

Antonio -Tony was our driver and our tour guide. He did an amazing job at both. We had a wonderful day and learned so much and saw so many beautiful things and felt very safe. He is an expert on Pompeii! It was an amazing experience all around and we would highly recommend this tour and our tour guide Tony.
The most amazing excursion
Yonatan_S, Jun 2022
My wife and I took a cruise for our 20th anniversary and decided to take a private excursion in Naples. Tony was amazing. We started by going to the Positano and Sorento. On the way Tony explained about mount Vesuvius and the eruption, the history of the area. Tony then recommended a pizza restaurant in Sorento which was absolutely amazing. From there we went to Pompeii where Tony explained about life in the city and showed us some of the amazing ruins. This truly was the most amazing tour which was the highlight of our trip.
Awesome day in Amalfi
PENNYL_B, May 2022
Tony was a wonderful guide. We were able to do exactly what we wanted, and he was our guide in Pompeii where he shared expert information with us.
Best tour ever!
Sara_B, May 2022
Antonino was the best driver and tour guide we had! I use a walker/rollator and he modified our tour as needed, going above and beyond to help me. He was on time, professional and spoke good English, explaining in detail ahead of time what we were going to see/what to expect, with pictures, and was a great tour guide at Pompeii (if option is chosen). Remember you get what you pay for and this tour doesn't disappoint!
Super Awesome Day
Jean_S, May 2022
Driving in a van down the Amalfi coast was awesome! Scenery is beautiful! Town of Positano such a wonder!! Private tour of Pompeii was so interesting!! Lunch at a family run vineyard was remarkable ($ of lunch was not included in tour but so worth it)!!!
Awesome day trip
Sarah_W, Apr 2022
We had a wonderful day with Antonio. This was easily a 5-star day. He took us to Positano and Sorrento in the morning. During the ride he gave us a lot of historical and geographical information about Naples and the surrounding area. We liked Sorrento more than Postiano as is it had a little bit more of an authentic feeling though Positano provided some beautiful views! At Pompeii in the afternoon, Antonio was a wonderful guide. He gave us great context and insight that we would not have otherwise known. It was also very helpful having someone who knows their way around and can hit the highlights as the site is massive.
Highly recommended

Umberto and Antonio were amazing. Kind and knowledgeable. Very relaxed trip and we were able to see everything promised. A very good experience. Highly recommended
Best tour ever!!!

If you’re looking for a tour anywhere near Naples/Pompeii/the Amalfi Coast, stop the search immediately and book with A Drive Into the Blue. You cannot do better. We did a day-long tour with our family of four (including 2 teenagers) to Pompeii, Sorrento, Positano and the Amalfi Coast. It was magical, an experience we’ll all remember for the rest of our lives. Our driver Antonin was a pure delight. He met us at the train station, connected us with our Pompeii guide (Celestina, who was absolutely terrific), recommended a lunch place that delivered one of the best meals of our whole trip, then expertly guided us from one breathtaking site to the next. Antonin has a deep knowledge of the history and character of the area and a contagious enthusiasm that makes you want to know more. Best tour we’ve ever done.
Amazing! Priceless! Highly recommend!!!
Antonio is an amazing tour guide! Extremely knowledgeable and has such a gentle spirit. He provided not just information but pictures to provide visual understanding. He picked us up where we were staying, geared the trip to what he felt was best and he couldn't have been more accurate. He switched the schedule around so we could have shopping time in Sorrento (we were here in January when the least amount of tourists are in Italy so shop hours vary). And gave us a special experience at the end by showing us the most picturesque location in Naples before dropping us off. Highly recommend! Worth every euro plus more!!
Keyu_L, Dec 2021
Amazing day trip near Naples and I highly recommend our tour guide Tonny. Smooth communication from the beginning to the end. Very puncture with collection time and he is an amazing story teller!! Highly recommend this day trip to friends and family trip.
Awesome Quick Way to Get a Taste of Almafi Coast
Carina_L, Nov 2021
Great experience during the off season. Prompt, professional, and knowledgeable. He was also very flexible and allowed us to customize our tour. Highly recommend! Thanks for a memorable day!
Christina_B, Sep 2021
Antonino was a great guide! He is very knowledgable about the places visited and went above and beyond to make sure we got the best tour possible!
A must-try experience!!!
Daylene_D, Sep 2020
Our driver/tour guide was Antonino "Tony" (of A drive into the blue) and he was very professional, truly knowledgeable, and very accommodating. His driving skills were truly handy as we drove around those bends in the Amalfi coast. What a gem! So glad we took this trip!
Response from Host, Sep 2020
Thank you very much Daylene. We were happy to be of service to you, thus fulfilling what we have chosen as our main mission: the satisfaction of our customers! In addition to this, you two girls have been fantastic customers, a dream for any tourist service provider. All the best

We had a great time with Tony as our driver/guide. Very informative both with historic info and current info. Thanks so much for a great day seeing beautiful south Italy!
Tony made this a spectacular day! We...
Heidi_N, Jul 2018
Tony made this a spectacular day! We met our driver in the exact spot as instructed. He took us to Sorrento and Positano first and then to Pompeii which was excellent as we were able to avoid large crowds at all three locations. Tony provided us with information on the area, history and was able to answer all questions. He gave us recommendations where to see the best views, dining options and suggestions for each of our stops. Before we got to Pompeii he showed us a map on his iPad and suggested what to see in great detail which was extremely helpful for us to self-guide. Our family was 2 adults and 3 teenagers and everyone agreed that it was a trip highlight. The only thing that would have made it better was to have time to see Naples as Tony painted such a beautiful picture in our trip! Many thanks to Tony and to Viator for offering this option.
Great place to visit
mamtadp, Jul 2018
This was one of the favorite tours for our group of 15. The places to visit were really good. Only downside was our driver. We had taken the option of an English speaking driver and not gone with the guide. Our driver barely spoke English. Didn't say anything on the whole trip except when he would pick us up. That was a disappointment
