2-Day Italy Trip: Naples, Pompeii, Sorrento and Capri
Reviewed by: geoffandcourts, November 2015
This tour was great for us as we had such limited time! Would have loved to stay longer and seen Amalfi though. The organisation we felt was superb, they had many different types of tours going on the same buses at different times and days which they worked seamlessly and tirelessly. Though it was hard for us on such a short tour to have 5 different tour guides over 2 days. Also the amount of languages they had to speak meant that you weren't getting as much information or tuned out completely. Its not a Naples tour just a stop but Sorrento was much more beautiful in my opinion anyway. Our accommodation we didn't go for the upgrade and it was just stunning! During our whole two month holiday we didn't eat as much food as we did in these two days! It was just course after course of paid for meals!

We had such a great time on this two day tour, even though it was pouring while we were guided through the ancient ruins of Pompeii. Amazing value for the price. This tour was extremely well coordinated, with various guides for each leg, and they were all mindful of making sure they had everyone in our group before leaving to the next location. Also provided some free time in each location to explore. Overall a great way to see all these places in a matter of two days without having to plan it yourself. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and would definitely recommend it!
The day starts early, but our guide on the ride to Naples, Francesca, was humorous and shared interesting tidbits about the region. Lunch was included at a restaurant in Pompeii with some traditional pasta of course, and meat. Our guide for Pompeii, Paolo, was hilarious and very charismatic. You spend about 2.5 hours in the ruins with the guide.
For the evening, you are dropped off at your hotel in Sorrento and have free time. The tour group is large and is broken into smaller groups staying at each hotel, but all are 4 star hotels.Our hotel in Sorrento was a dream, truly a beautiful hotel in a great location. Perched slightly up the hill with wonderful views of the Bay of Naples and Mt. Vesuvius - we woke up early the next morning and watched the sunrise in this beautiful location. We had an amazing 4 course dinner at the hotel included, which was one of my favorite meals in Italy.
The next morning we enjoyed the best complimentary breakfast spread at the hotel before being picked up for the boat to Capri, which take about 45 minutes. We were so happy the weather was perfect on this day. The boat ride to Capri, the isle of Capri, Anacapri, and the small boat ride to the Blue Grotto were all incredibly beautiful. The only disappointment was that we could not actually go in the Blue Grotto, due to sea conditions. We had lunch in Anacapri, and some free time in both Capri and Anacapri.

Great experience! Sasha was a fantastic guide in Capri and we were so glad we took his advice and took the chairlift to the top! Awesome! Only downside was the crazy bus switching in Pompeii and Ornella the tourguide there who was so eager to be on vacation that we felt like we had to figure out that part by ourselves because she didn't explain anything and just left us at the hotel and it really took away some of the fun. We loved Hotel Vesuvio but found it very frustrating that the pool was closed right after we got there. the Blue Grotto was great but the boats that took us into the grotto demanded excessive tips and this was very uncomfortable.We have recommended this tour often and wish we could go again! Plan on staying 2 nights in Sorrento and Capri!

Great hotel, guides, experiences, food. The only glitch was the dropoff in Rome, which tookover one hour. Better planning would help.We would rate it 4 1/2.

I didn't want to leave and wish I'd done a longer tour! The beauty of this region cannot be captured with words. Tour was well organised and conducted in a timely manner, allowing a perfect combo of relaxation/exploration/sightseeing.
