Highlight of our trip! Amazing tour with very professional guides and so well organized. Hotel was beautiful and food was top notch. We fell in love with Sorrento and looking forward to returning one day.

Overall, I felt like I got my moneys worth by booking this tour. Especially as a solo traveler with limited time.
Make sure the day before the tour, you have the front desk or guest relations of your hotel confirm your pickup like I did. I was picked up on time and went to the meeting point. We boarded the busses and made a quick photo stop in Naples and then went off to Pompeii. The tour guide for Pompeii was very bland but definitely provided the necessary information of the sight. Take pics, explore and take in what you can at this amazing place. After Pompeii and a lot of traffic, we arrived in Sorrento around 8:30pm that night.
The hotel I had was Hotel Michaelangelo and it was definitely an older hotel. It seems like the people who are doing the 1 night in Sorrento get the nicer hotels for some reason. The hotel was fine however and the food they have was good. No issues at all with the dinner. I chose to eat crepes and at random cafes for breakfast each day.
Day 2 we went to Capri/AnaCapri and I HIGHLY suggest doing the chairlift for 11 euro. The views at the top are absolutely breathtaking and you'll have some of the most memorable photos ever. The Blue Grotto was open when we got in the boat to head over, but then closed while in route. This is NOT the tour operators fault, as they try their absolute best to get everyone to see it. Instead, they took us on another boat ride to see the other grottos and get some nice photos from the water of the island of Capri.
The last day which is a free day, can be used for whatever you prefer. A lot of people used it to take the train/bus to the Amalfi Coast, but I hung out and relaxed around Sorrento for the day. Sorrento at night, especially in Piazza Tasso is very fun and vibrant. Tons of people on the streets and it's extremely safe for everyone. Later that day they picked me up to head back to Rome at the time expected. Then dropped me off at my hotel. Thanks for a great time!

this was perfect for us, really limited the fuss of travel to Sorrento. Pompeii tour was very good our guide was very good. sorrento and our superior hotel was very very nice location was great. I didnt like getting a food choice off of menu but the food happened to be excellent. the capri tour was very nice too,but we were loaded on boat to the grotto and then went out a short way and the driver turned around said the waters were not good to go. we were all dissapointed. especially that we didn't see that the waters looked bad, but then we aren't the coast guard! the other ride out was beautiful. I'm sure most tour groups don't go to grotto even if you weren't set up with this tour.

This tour was great! Loved just showing up, hoping on to the buses and just enjoying everything southern Italy has to offer! All of the guides were extremely nice and knowledgeable! Hotel was good, clean and a nice view!
I would highly recommend using the free time on the third day to see more of the Amalfi Coast. We took the local bus very easy to Positano and loved it!
The only thing we would change is the stop in Naples. It is really pointless. There was nothing to see but a dirty harbour...

This short tour was everything I expected, most enjoyable and to be recommended, especially if you have just a few days to see Italy south of Rome. We enjoyed a wide range of awesome sights, from the ruins of Pompeii to the gorgeous Mediterranean coastline from Sorrento to Amalfi and a day trip to Capri. The tour guides were fabulous, knew their history, were ideal personalities to inform and entertain us and the accommodation excellent.

This trip was the highlight of our vacation! The beauty of the Amalfi Coast is incomparable and Capri is charming. If you have time, take the Chair Lift at AnaCapri for the best view of your life. Wouldn't say you actually spend any time in Naples as it is a quick stop to see the pier. Pompeii is amazing but take VERY comfortable shoes, a hat and bottles of water as there is virtually no shade nor places to purchase water once you are in the ruins. WELL worth every penny! Also, we upgraded to stay at Imperial Tramantano and the staff, hotel, food and overall experience were beyond expectations. We loved it there and dream of returning!
