3-Day Italy Trip: Naples, Pompeii, Sorrento and Capri
Reviewed by: Craig D, September 2015
This was truly a highlight of our trip to Italy. The hotel in Sorrento was outstanding with wonderful food. The tour guides were great. We loved the Blue Grotto in Capri. Pompeii was very interesting. I would highly recommend this tour to everyone. It was worth every penny we paid for it.

My daughter and I took this tour together. Most of the tour was great - some not so good. The trip to Naples and Pompeii was separate to the trip to Sorrento and Capri as after visiting Pompeii, those staying over in Sorrento were placed on another bus. Our tour guide to Naples / Pompeii lacked enthusiasm and she spent a great deal of the bus trip talking in Italian to the bus driver very annoying. In Naples, we collected our tour guide for Pompeii - an older woman by the name of Wilma. After lunch in a restaurant at the Pompeii site this was quite good - we were left with Wilma to show us through Pompeii. We had been looking forward to visiting Pompeii and Wilma thoroughly ruined this experience for us. She shuffled along slowly, mumbling away - it is was impossible to hear or understand her. She spoke a lot about the weather I think and quite a few of us became so fed up, we took our head set earpieces out so we didn't have to listen to her. This is the worst tour we have ever been on! Also on this whole tour both guides spoke in a second language, along with English. So distracting and time consuming. Tours should be in one language only! The trip turned for the better when we left these guides behind and went on the second bus to Sorrento. If you take this trip, my recommendation is take the 4 star hotel - it was magnificent and dinner and breakfast was superb. Our trip to Capri was very nice and our guide was very good. When in Capri, I recommend you take the chair lift up to the top - the views are glorious and you can look down over the local houses, yards and gardens on the way up. The trip to the blue grotto is ok - you are only in there for a short while, but it's another experience. All in all I can highly recommend this tour - except for the Pompeii experience unfortunately!

This was an excellent and well organized tour. The hotel in Sorrento was well located, and had a direct view to the sea, with friendly staff. The dinner in Sorrento was great. The trip to Capri and Anacapri was excellent. If you to Capri dont miss the Chair cliff, the view was very amazing.

Just absolutely fantastic trip. Amazing 4 star hotel. We didn't have to worry about anything and we had an exceptional time in the south of Italy.

This trip was amazing. We had various guides for different parts of the trip and they were all very organised and informative. We had a brief stop in Naples, more to take photos. The time at Pompeii was very interesting and long enough. It was very hot so suggest hat, sunscreen and lots of water. Our hotel in Sorrento was on the water with a private beach and was a great way to spend our free day in Sorrento. The trip to Capri was beautiful and was just like we had seen in photos. All the included meals were of a high quality and standard. A family of four, with two teenagers, we all thoroughly enjoyed this tour and it has been one of the highlights of our holiday.
