Our favorite

The Amalfi coast is beautiful. The village of Amalfi was very cute and had great shops and cafes. This was really an enchanting place. Combining Amalfi and Pompeii in the same trip was tough. Traffic delays did not allow much time to see Pompeii.

Exceptional Guide
July 18, 2022
Our guide was Luca. He was exceptional. He had a depth of knowledge about the local lifestyle, customs and people and he loved to share that knowledge with our small group. He was able to show us aspects of the Amalfi area that a larger group would not have seen and he did it in a very casual, unhurried manner. We never felt rushed or on a deadline. His knowledge and understanding of the Pompeii site was extraordinary. He was very well versed in the culture of the period but also the science and engineering achievements that were evident. He brought some areas of the site to life by relating what we saw to how the residents lived in that time and what shaped their world. I give him 5 stars and recommend him and his group to anyone going to that region.

Wonderful day excursion to this beautiful Italian coast and Pompeii! Transport van was very nice and we had an excellent driver. Our guide provided a fun and complete description of every aspect of our tour.

Pompeii and Amalfi Coast - unexpected costs
October 09, 2019
The Amalfi Coast was our favorite place of all the excursions we took. And our tour guide was very good. What I want to bring to your attention; are all the additional costs so you can advise those who plan to take this excursion. There was a boat tour that was 15 to 20 euros per person extra, lunch at a predetermined restaurant and set menu that the tour guide had planned that was another 15 euros per person and we had to pay to tour through Pompeii; think this was 10 - 15 euros per person. Thankfully we had brought enough euros to cover this; but it required us to have to purchase additional euros once back on the cruise ship as a result. It would have been a great disappointment to have gone on this excursion and not have the necessary funding.

What a treat
August 14, 2019
We actually traveled in reverse order from what is described—Amalfi coast first, then Pompeii. Mix up at outset as directions to meeting place from Shorex were wrong(said “exit pier,” which we did, ending up at city center and calling representative, who told us to go back because Luca, our guide was waiting at cruise ship). Luca was a delight, extremely informative, engaging, knowledgeable and with complete command of English. Trip itself was wonderful. We did boat ride add on, which I recommend, although you can’t really hear Luca’s commentary over motor noise.

Pompeii/Amalfi coast

Deborah was a wonderful guide through Pompeii. The motor coach was a cool and comfy place to rest after the Pompeii tour while riding to the Amalfi coast. We had a lovely boat tour of the Amalfi coast ( worth the 14E extra per person) and Deborah continued her descriptive tour. It was a lovely day!

Excellent Tour
July 30, 2018
This was an excellent tour all around. The guide was very knowledgeable and provided us with key details for the entire trip. She also had a great personality. Pompeii was very busy but our guide was able to navigate us through with ease. Our driver was very skilled and safe. Something to note is that you drive on sides of mountains. The drops are very steep. Not for the faint of heart. All around this was an excellent tour.
