Itinerary:

Day 1: Rome – Sorrento
Leave central Rome in the morning, and journey south to sunny Naples. Travel through the city in the comfort of your coach to enjoy a panoramic overview of the downtown area. Gaze out over the Bay of Naples, and have your camera ready for two brief stops at Mergellina and Molo Beverllo to admire sights of the gulf and Mt Vesuvius.

Travel inland to Pompeii, and after lunch, visit the UNESCO-listed archaeological site with your guide. Hear how Pompeii lay buried under volcanic ash for centuries following Mt Vesuvius’ 79 BC eruption, and explore the impressive Roman ruins.
Return to your coach and travel to the Amalfi Coast, where you'll check in to your Sorrento hotel in time for dinner.

Day 2: Capri 
From November to March this tour does not visit Capri on Day 2.
The excursion is replaced with a day of free time in Sorrento.
Enjoy breakfast, and then travel from Sorrento port to the island of Capri by hydrofoil boat. Hop aboard a rowing boat at Capri’s Marina Grande harbor, and relax as your guide rows you around the island to see the magical Blue Grotto (Grotta Azzurra). This intriguing cave is said to have sunk dramatically since prehistoric times, blocking out most of its entrances.

Return to Marina Grande and travel by minibus to the village of Anacapri, perched high above the glamorous Capri Town. Explore at leisure, admiring its romantic wisteria-draped villas with sun-bleached stucco, and gaze down over the Bay of Naples.

Head back down the hill and visit one of Capri Town’s traditional trattorias for lunch. Walk it off on a stroll, passing through Capri’s swanky Piazetta (Piazza Umberto) — Capri’s place to see and be seen. Board another hydrofoil boat in the late afternoon and return to Sorrento in time for dinner.

After breakfast, spend the morning in Sorrento at your leisure. Perhaps take a stroll along Corso Italia and climb the steps to see atmospheric Piazza Tasso, tucked away in the heart of Sorrento Old Town. Soak up views of the cliffs, where Sorrento’s houses almost seem to be stacked on top of each other, and then shop for any last-minute souvenirs.

Meet your guide at the prearranged time, and then return to Rome by coach. Your tour finishes at your central Rome hotel in the evening.

    We loved touring Capri with Sasha, he was very informative and made sure we maximized our time on the island. Our hotel in Sorrento was fantastic, it was very clean and in the best location possible. Pompei was amazing, much larger then we realized. Only downside was the long drive

  • 16-Oct-2019

    Pompeii was awesome, Sorrento and Capri were beautiful. The guides were knowledgeable and informative. Accommodation in Sorrento was luxury. The only upsetting moment was when my husband and I (in our 70's) told one of the guides that after our exhausting tour of Pompeii that we didn't think we could manage the trip to Capri the next day. She had a meltdown and suggested that our trip could not continue if we did not go. Was she going to abandon us in the middle of Sorrento at 6pm?. We agreed to go to Capri on the third day before heading back to Rome. She could have been more caring rather than threatening.

    We enjoyed the places we went. Sorrento hotel was right on the water with beautiful views and very good food. We made it to the Blue Grotto and it was lovely. We paid extra for the tour of the Amalfi Coast with a personal driver and it was worth it....such a amazing coastline. What was not enjoyed about this trip is that they keep switching you to different buses with different guides and none of them make it clear about what you were doing next. We had a very bad experience with the ferry coming back from Capri...it was over an hour late and we waited in a crowd that nearly paniced and caused a very dangerous stampede. It was a very scary situation since we had no guide close by to assure us. This would be a good trip if they would give you one guide the whole time. The jumping around from bus to bus and different guides wastes so much time. It would also help if we had a written schedule with information about each day. Guides left you guessing and were not clear.

    This part of Italy is a much see, filled with beauty and uniqueness.
    The Tour Group needs to work on logistics as clients time was eaten up by 4 vehicle changes on the first day and 3 tour guide changes. Day 2 was fantastic and made possible by the well organized and information filled guide, Satcha. Day 3 again had 4 vehicle changes. Most pickups were late and the transfer of vehicles involved moving people and luggage which was a long process. We added a tour to the Amalfie coast on day 3 instead of just free time and was glad we did because of the beauty of the area but again the tour group missed the mark on planning. We had 10 people elect to go so they sent a van and a car to take us. The 9 passenger van had 8 adult tourist and the driver who spoke no English and the journey across the narrow and switch back roads made it tight seating and hard for viewing. We understand the original driver got sick and the replacement tried hard to communicate with a bunch of tourists who spoke little Italian. Non the less I would not have skipped it.

    Excellent tour. Guides all super and friendly and informative. Generally well organized. One must stick to the group or you may miss out. Hotels very nice and food provided is good. You can upgrade your food if you go on your own in the evening in Sorrento with all the available boutique restaurants Capri and Positano are beautiful and fun. Not to be missed. We did get into the blue grotto and again beautiful. Amalfi can be done on last day of tour, but extra cost. We did it but after regular tour I could take it or leave it. Regular tour well worth the money.

    First, the bus trip and tour of Pompeii was great. After that, it went downhill and was very confusing with the lack of communication from the tour guides. Once we completed at Pompeii and returned to the bus, a group of us were directed to another bus and sent to Sorrento. We were all dropped off at different hotels and didn't know what was in store for us the rest of the time. Since the group was so large, the tour guide had to talk in both in English and Spanish when there was communication. Sorrento and Capri was two other tour guides and involved many bus transfers to get us around. According to the description it said Amalfi coast was included and on our way to Sorrento we were told this was a separate tour and an additional 50 euros. So rushed and lack of communication I would not recommend this tour. Was not told how long we would be gone from Rome. Since the tour included two dinners, two lunches, and two breakfasts that lead me to believe we would be leaving the area after breakfast on the third day but it was another all day event. Hope they can improve the communication and maybe make it smaller groups

    The online description of the tour was pretty accurate. Therefore, no huge surprises once it got started. Like many have said, the trip involves several local tour guides who "hand over" guests at various stops. It was rather smooth in my experience, except for in one occasion our group of guests got really confused as to which hotels we're staying. Turns out two should stay at hotel A and the rest should stay at hotel B. But those at hotel B knew nothing about the arrangement. Interestingly, the two at hotel A received no information about the rest of the itinerary (such as meeting time/location) and they had to ask the rest of the group (they happen to have exchanged phone number). Local tour company was not very accessible in time of need.

    Pompeii, Sorrento and Capri are wonderful destinations that I highly encourage tourists to visit. I will still recommend this tour, although be prepared for a little bit of chaos which, I heard, is typical of Southern Italy :)

    After planning the rest of the trip, I saw this and jumped on it because it required no planning! We picked the upgraded accommodations in Sorrento which was amazing because our hotel was right on the cliff and had direct access via elevator to the swim club below which was outstanding. The Pompeii trip was amazing and Capri - especially the Blue Grotto - was a fun outing that my kids are still talking about. Highly recommend.

    In previous multi-day tours, we've had a single Tour Guide, but during this 3 day tour we had several different Tour Guides. While the process of moving from one group to another was fairly smooth, it was a little awkward to not be with the same group of people and guide every day. The Tour itself was great, we got to see so much. The lunch we had near Naples was great and the visit to Pompeii very informative. We had a large group in Pompeii, and it was pretty crowded there, but our guide Fabiano took us to the highlights. In Sorrento we had a nice hotel and enjoyed the breakfasts/dinners included. A highlight was our day trip to Capri. Our guide Sascha had some pre-arranging to ensure we got an immediate boat to the Blue Grotto even though there was a huge number of people all trying to do the same thing. We got into the Blue Grotto and shortly after we did it was closed due to waves. Cudo's to Sascha! The Amalfi coast is really beautiful and we spent the last free day of the tour visiting Positano. Transfers were not a problem and once back in Rome we were driven directly to our small apartment we had rented not a large hotel like most of the other guests. Our driver had a little trouble finding it but was very apologetic, and gave us information on key things we drove by so it was an enjoyable drive :.

    The first day the touring part in Pompei on the trip was fine. The lunch on the first day was not good. My husband ordered the beef and it was thin, cold and tasteless. Later that day we were transporting to our Sorrento hotel. At the hotel we were given printed instructions for the remaining two plus days. We were not told in advance that if we wanted to go to Capri that an additional 156.00 euros was needed per person. Communication were lacking for the entire trip. The hotel management did their best to help us with instructions to Capri. Our rooms at the hotel Michaelangelo were very clean and comfortable. I would recommend the hotel and their staff. On the last day we were picked up at the hotel and transported back to a large bus in Pompei. When we were allowed to board the bus all the double seats were taken with only singles available. We noticed that a family of four were using four double seats instead of two double seat. We were forced to seat in the rear of the bus which proved to be a hardship for me when I trip on the rear platform and cut my knee. My husband had to ask the personnel on the bus for a bandage because my knee was bleeding. The tour was very misleading and not at all organized to our liking. The staff on the return trip from Pompei to Rome were not at all attentive.
