The highlight of our trip were the guides, Rob (local) and Vincenzo (Pompeii)! A lot of walking but totally worth it and mind blowing the size of Pompeii! Take an umbrella, although we luckily missed the rain (: Positano was beautiful, but quite expensive, which we did expect. The bus had good aircon and appropriate stops. It has no wifi though, so be prepared! Departure is from a very good location. Antonio, the bus driver, was a real champion!

Grear experience. Even if it was with short stops there were splendid views and well deserved time and money invested. Definetely would recommend it to anyone to give it a try - Maria, the guide was pretty nice and the driver indeed a professional. You should choose the trip with the 30 minutes boat Cruise since you will discover amazing landscapes visible only from seaside...

I enjoyed this trip immensely. The tour guide Zuna was very knowledgeable, professional and accommodating. The Amalfi Coast is a wonder of the world. Would recommend this tour.

Absolutely first class! Andrea and Gini were fantastic and the places they took us to visit were beautiful. Highly recommend.

We had an amazing time ! Great communication the days prior and exactly what we were expecting for the day
