  • Hassle-free full-day transportation to Pompeii and Positano from Rome
  • Priority entry to Pompeii and a guide to better understand the complex ruins
  • Views of the Amalfi Coast along the famously scenic coastal drive

Weather makes all the difference

When left Rome it was raining a lot and was gloomy & dull. The guide made an executive decision to go to Positano first as it was raining heavy in Pompeii. Positano had great weather so we're glad we got to see the Amalfi Coast in the sun. When we reached Pompeii the rain had cleared and it was sunny again. We had a great 1 and half hour tour of Pompeii in good weather. Great excursion

Amazing Tour😊

This was a very nice tour of the Amalfi Coast and Pompeii. Make sure to bring an umbrella as the scourging heat was unforgiving in Pompeii. Great history of the eruption of Mt Vesuvius 1000 yrs ago. The drive to Positano was pleasant. Clair was our tour guide and did a fantastic job entertaining the group on the bus. Francesco was a very good driver maneuvering the bus through the mountain side roads. We had a great time.

Should update the title from small group to big group. It's 50+ people on the same bus so obviously not small at all!

We left Rome around 8:10 a.m. and returned around 9:00 p.m. Long day, but covered lots of ground. Our first stop was in Pompeii. It was hot, and we did a lot of walking, but what an amazing site to visit! Our tour guide for Pompeii was one of the best I've ever had. We had a pizza lunch in Pompeii and then traveled to the adorable town of Positano. Only regret is that we didn't have more time here. Sonia was our tour guide, and she made the trip lots of fun. Antonio was our bus driver, and he did a fantastic job maneuvering the narrow streets along the Amalfi Coast into Positano. I would definitely recommend this trip.

long day trip to Pompeii
Kathleen_S

We went on a Saturday in early August. The traffic was terrible, made us over 2 hours behind schedule. The bus was small and packed. Itinerary was changed up a bit due to traffic and crowds at the stops ahead. First stop was a limoncello factory/ gift shop. It was an add on, and was more about buying product. Then Sorrento, 1.5 hours free time. beautiful place. Pompeii was next, limited tour as many areas are closed. Food was pizza to go, eat on the bus, not a part of the original plan, did not have cash, hassled by restaurant as they wanted cash, but we did not know we were going to order pizza. Guide was nice, but was not strict with times and many guests were late to bus at every stop. Some guests left the tour without communicating, and the rest of us waited and waited for them, eventually leaving, thinking we were leaving them behind. Stressful

Beautiful Positano

I wanted to express my disappointment in our tour for our travel accommodations. During the end of the tour the AC broke and we got wet. We weren’t able to sit in our seats and 2 family members specifically had to be transferred to another bus. I want to thank Claire and Manu from City Wonders for being so accommodating with all the issues that occurred. This is the only reason I give it a 5. I believe we should receive a credit for the inconvenience that we had as a family. Also, the tour mentioned small group and it was about 50/60 people.

Semih was absolutely amazing! Very kind tour guide, extremely knowledgeable and funny guy. The day was long but well worth it. We first drove by the amalfi coast, then stopped at postiano for an hour and a half and got to explore/swim on our own. We made a quick stop to try lemonchello and buy a few things from the shop. Afterwards we got to pompeii and had food waiting for us right after tour (at own expense). Definitely recommend filling up in the morning at the first stop, you will get hungry before you have the chance to get food again!! Also bring lots of water :)

Pompei & Positano with Semih Topaloglu

The tour guide Semih Topaloglu was exceptionally good. We had a great time. The bus driver (Arlo - might have misspelled his name) was one of the best I have ridden with. Great driving on the winding narrow roads.

“The offer is very nice to be true“
Marjorie_O
, Aug 2022
The offer is very nice to be true, they should not sell this tour with all the visits because of what they offer only the visit to Pompeii is the truth. My purchase was through Positano and they took us 40 minutes to the ugliest part of Sorrento. Please do not fool people with this spectacular itinerary knowing that in July and August there will be no visit to the Amalfi Coast, NOR POSITSNO. Always read the bad reviews because they are true

Bait and Switch
Nond_C
, Aug 2022
Felt like a bait and switch for 2 reasons: 1. NOT a small group tour. There were close to 50 people on the large uncomfortable bus. Even when splitting the group in Pompeii, there were about 25 people in each group. The guide had trouble keeping track of everyone, almost leaving a few people behind at one point after not providing a clear meeting time or place for after the stop. 2. NOT an Amalfi Coast tour. Though there's fine print that states that you may visit Sorrento instead of Positano, it doesn't tell you that you won't be driving along the Amalfi Coast at all if that happens. You see the Gulf of Naples on the way to Sorrento, but some don't even consider that the Amalfi Coast area at all. Pompeii was great and some of the views were amazing, but it's not what was expected when the tour title states "Amalfi Coast Small Group Tour". If this were advertised as a Pompeii and Sorrento Large Group Tour, it would have met expectations, but this felt more like a bait and switch.

Great experience and would do it again

Valentina was an excellent tour guide! She very knowledgeable of the different sites that we were going and ensured that everyone had a good time. The drive to Pompeii was about three hours but they stop at Cassino which is about halfway between Rome and Pompeii. This made the trip much easier. At Pompeii, Leyla was a great tour guide and kept a good pace and provided fantastic details about the different structures of the site and its history. If you are not a fan of the heat, I recommend going when it is cooler as other members of our group had a less enjoyable experience because of walking in the heat. You will get to spend about an hour and half at Pompeii which is not nearly enough time to see everything. If you are a history buff like me, you will be wanting more. However, you will get to see plenty at the site. It would have been nice to add a little more shopping time at Pompeii but this is just a minor suggestion. The trip to Amalfi Coast was also spectacular. There are plenty of shops there to get souvenirs. The beach is pretty good as well although it is crowded. We got to spend about an hour and half there as well. Again, this amount of time will make you feel that it is not enough but it is still nice. The trip to the lemonade shop was also nice and a delight. In short, I recommend this tour if you are like me if you have limited time in Rome and Italy. It was great not having to find a way to get to Pompeii and Amalfi Coast on my own. If you have time to spend more at each place, I would recommend something else. But the tour guides made it feel like a enriching experience and a true delight. As a classical archaeologist, I was super happy to be able to visit Pompeii and so glad that this tour was still available. Super glad I booked this tour!

Our guide was interesting and informative. He gave us insight into the customs, food, and history of many things, not just our tour. Great memory!

It was a good tour. Very happy with the experience at Pompeii. Just wish we had of had more time at Positano we were only there for 1 hour unfortunately wish they would have told me in the booking how much time exactly I would have had in Positano, I may have booked something different that had more time there.
