Private Trip to Amalfi coast and Pompei
HappyTrails274, Aug 2019
Our tour driver was fantastic ( Carmine- spelling? Sorry I didn’t get his name correct). The roads were dangerous and windy but he was an expert so we were in good hands. He was patient and accommodating and also pointed out items of interest along the way. We needed to change the plans at the last minute to upgrade to a tour guide of Pompei and the Leisure Italy Vincenzo accommodated our request. This was well worth it as we got the most out of the tour in terms of what we were looking for. The guide that gave us a tour of Pompei was an expert as most guides are. Her enjoyment and passion for Pompei and history came through. She was engaging with the kids and customized the tour to our preferences. A thoroughly wonderful day.

Private tour from our cruise ship in Naples to Pompeii and the Amalfi Coast
Allison_M, Jul 2019
This was the most expensive tour we took for the week (5 private tours from the NCL Epic). It was the least favorite tour we had. Europe was extremely hot in July and every other tour guide we had provided us with cool water to drink during the tour, but when we asked for water, he stopped to let us buy our own (This tour was over $1300- would water have ruined their profit?). But the tour guide did have a portable router to allow us to access email, however it was not working in the afternoon, and despite me telling him that, he didn't try to fix it. He also had a microphone (no other guide had that) but in the third row in the van, they couldn't hear him, and he told them to turn off the AC, but in heat, who wants to do that? We went to Pompeii first, and he was a very thorough guide, and really knew his history, and gave us a very in depth look into the ruins. He spotted another tourist going into a roped off area while giving us our tour, and asked us to wait a minute while he went over and yelled at the other guy to get out of the space he was looking in. It was a bit strange for us. However, since it was so hot, after an hour and a half walking in the sun I told him that we were just too hot, and can we please go onto our next destination. Because he really was so into the Pompeii history, he had a little bit of a chip on his shoulder for the rest of the day. I had asked about going to the Cameo factory, and he told me that I should have told him sooner, and that we can not go. I thought this was a private tour? Anyway, we continued onto Sorrento. When we got there, it was lunchtime, and he said he would make a reservation for us at a wonderful restaurant. And that we had 2 hours to eat and look around the town on our own. Well the restaurant served slowly, and that took 1.5 hours of our time in Sorrento, so we didn't really have time to see much of it. The restaurant was very expensive- 5 pizza's were $113 Euro! (it was half that every other restaurant we ate in on our other tours) So, he probably got some sort of kickback, since we had to tell the hostess he sent us. He did stop for pictures on the way to Positano, in a lovely spot. Then we got to Positano and we had another hour to look around on our own. The scenery was beautiful, but we could have just hired a taxi and took a tour of Pompeii for much less. Not worth the money.

Hello Helene, this is Fabrizio from Leisure Italy. We are sorry to read you did not have a great day in Naples. But we are afraid there must be some misunderstanding because we do not offer any tour as expensive as you state! The real tour price is not even half what you write. We are wondering if this review is not posted to the wrong business. We would really appreciate if you could double check.Thaks in advance, Fabrizio
Jamie_M, Jun 2019
This was an amazing tour. Our driver was very accommodating and knowledgeable. He suggested great stops to capture perfect pictures, provided great information and was really great with my four kids. I highly recommend and will be using again on my next visit.

Pompeii/Amalfi coast
THP1957, Jun 2019
Fabio our driver/guide was prompt and there to meet our train as requested . Pleasant and knowledgeable about area but the traffic was so heavy that our time to walk around Amalfi and Positano was cut to less than an hour at each place . Way to much time in the car. Daniela our Pompeii guide was excellent . It might be good to advise future clients that weekends are not the best to drive this route because of heavy traffic delays
Response from Host, Mar 2020
Thank you for your review. Yes traffic can be a problem during week ends, which is the reason why we always recommend a week day or anyway an early start. Anyway we are glad you had a good day! Fabrizio

JOANNE_H, Apr 2018
Fabrizzio was well educated in ancient history and made a perfect guide in Pompeii. He recommended touring the Amalfi coast first to avoid the larger morning crowds in Pompeii. Perfect decision, since it was cool in April and we had plenty of time for the afternoon tour in Pompeii. To engage a personal driver/guide is a wonderful way to tour these areas, since you can tailor your day to meet your personal preferences. Fabrizzio was excellent, with near perfect English. A much better way to visit these areas than in large tour groups!

Susan G, Oct 2017
A great day out with Guiseppe. Spectacular views of the Amalfi Coast. Felt a little rushed but we got to see what we wanted to. Guiseppe wax an excellent guide at Pompeii and we were glad we paid the extra for the private guided tour of Pompeii. Well worth it.

Ok tour- we wanted to go to the beach and were told it would be a hassel. Otherwise it was a good trip. Nico is nice. If you want to have a beach day, don't book this trip!!

Julie F, Jul 2017
Guiseppe was a wealth of knowledge, Pompeii was so interesting and the Amalfi Coast incredibly beautiful. We stopped at Ravello and Amalfi as our guide thought Poisitano might be too busy. Ravello was so charming and the views breathtaking. Great tour.

Ann, Jul 2017
We myself, husband, son, daughter-in-law had a limited time in Sorrento and wanted to visit the Amalfi Coast as well as Pompeii, so this 9 hour tour was perfect. Fabrizio, our driver and guide was amazing, both personable and knowledgeable. He suggested going first to the Amalfi Coast and then to Pompeii in the afternoon when the crowds would be smaller and there would be a breeze. On the drive up the coast he stopped several times so that we could take pictures. Throughout our entire day he provided us with interesting information about the area. We visited Positano, Amalfi, and Ravello, where we had lunch. Fabrizio made a reservation for us at a restaurant overlooking the water and checked in on us several times to make sure everything was fine. His knowledge of Pompeii made it such an interesting experience we saw people walking around without guides, and I am certain that they did not have nearly the same experience or learn a fraction of what we did by having Fabrizio as our guide. Our only regret was that we did not have more than 2 days in Sorrento. We decided that we would like to come back for a week and that we would contact Fabrizio to arrange all of our excursions!

Lavinia was a very knowledgeable and friendly guide at Pompeii. Niccola was a fantastic driver; knew the region well, very accommodating, and made reservations for us at the most incredible restaurant in Positano, at the top of the cliffs. We couldn't have had a better day!

Giuseppe was the perfect host for our day in Naples. Friendly, very knowledgeable and accommodating, we saw everything on our list, even though we only had 6 hours, vehicle was impeccable. My 11 year old keeps talking about how much fun she had in Pompeii. A highlight of our trip to the Mediterranean.

Alan R, May 2017
Wow! Fabrizio, who was not only our driver but our licensed tour guide as well, was fantastic! We were picked up at the port exactly on time, in a beautiful Mercedes minivan, with water and soda. Fabrizio speaks perfect English, tailored our day to exactly what we wanted to do and see, has a great sense of humor and is extremely knowledgable. He has been conducting guided tours at Pompeii since he was 17 years old, so he knows the place extremely well. I cannot give enough positive recommendations to this tour and in particular, Fabrizio.

philip F, May 2017
Fabrizio is smart, knowledgable and passionate about his region. He made excellent suggestions to use our time to best advantage. We expected to be handed over to a licensed guide in Pompeii but Fabrizio is licensed and gave us a super tour seeing all the highlights but avoiding the large groups. We were taken to Ravello for lunch with stunning views and the freshest sea bass, just wonderful. A bonus was that Fabrizio speaks perfect English. Our drive home along the Amafi coast was delightful and we felt perfectly safe.

Marla W, Mar 2017
3 of us had amazing day visiting Pompeii and touring the Amalfi Coast with our private tour guides. Because our itinerary had changed dates our cruise stopped in Naples we appreciated the flexibility of Viator and our guides from Liesure Italy in allowing us to reschedule the date. We were met at the port. Our Pompeii guide was very knowledgeable and we were able learn the history and see the highlights of Pompeii at our own pace. We loved the drive along the beautiful Amalfi coast, including a stop for pizza, gilato and shopping. We were back in plenty of time to meet our cruise ship.

Our driver was extremely courteous and timely. He was very informative and helped us decide on a wonderful day, along with a great spot for lunch. Our tour guide of Pompeii was excellent as well- she gave us the perfect amount of information, helped us navigate the crowds and knew the perfect spots for pictures. It was an outstanding experience!

Howard R, Sep 2016
Fabrizio was amazing. He was professional and enthusiastic about the day we had planned. We ended up going to Pompeii first and his expert knowledge was outstanding. He took us into areas that had just been opened to tourist and had intimate knowledge of Pompeii. We truly appreciated his insight and expertise. He also was very good about ensuring that we didn't get stuck in crowds and recommended the best time to visit which avoided too many people. We ended up deciding to do Positano and he made a recommendation of Lunch at a place that was out of the tourist areas and had the most amazing view. The lunch was outstanding and the service was over the top. We will absolutely book with Fabrizio and his team again when in Naples.

I'd give this a 15 out of 10 if possible. Pasqual our guide was knowledgable, personal, and courteous. in fact he was so good that he really made the entire vacation for my wife, grandson, and I. He was awesome and showed us the beauty of the country.
