Know More about this tour

Leave central Sorrento or your Sorrento hotel by air-conditioned coach and travel east with your guide to the Amalfi Coast, awarded UNESCO World Heritage status for its gorgeous coastal landscapes.

After roughly 30 minutes, arrive at the world-famous coast and hop out of your coach at Positano, one of its prettiest towns. Made up of pastel-painted houses that tumble down to the Mediterranean Sea, this picture-postcard place is a sight to behold.

After hearing tales of Positano’s history, you will have some free time to visit it on your own(1h approx.). Continue east to the town of Amalfi, another of the coastline’s picture-postcard spots. Here, enjoy up to three hours of free time to stroll the narrow streets, visit the stunning 9th-century cathedral (own expense) and relax over lunch (own expense) at one of the many tempting restaurants.

When the time comes, rejoin your guide and coach and head to your next stop, the Roman ruins of Pompeii. Buried under burning ash and pumice during a catastrophic eruption of Mt Vesuvius in 79AD, the remains of this once-flourishing city, frozen in time by the preserving ash and rubble, offer a captivating window into life during Roman times.

On arrival, head inside (own expense) and set off on a walking tour of the highlights with an expert guide. Walk down the original Roman streets past ancient shops and houses, and admire some of the still-vivid frescoes and mosaics that attest to the wealth of some of Pompeii’s elite.

Explore the Forum, once Pompeii’s bustling main square, and check out the fresco-adorned thermal baths as well as other sights, all as your guide recounts what life was like here 2,000 years ago.

After around two hours, return to your coach and end your trip with a drop-off at the original start point in Sorrento.

  • If I had to do it over, I would do the 1/2 day your to Pompeii and a separate full day tour to the Amalfi coast. The tour to The Amalfi coast was too short and because we weren't many doing that part we were sent with a driver that was more like a taxi. The driver didn't say a word!

  • This tour was very good although we didn't stop at Positano as there was nowhere to park up. Amalfi was beautiful if very small and 2 hours here was more than enough whilst Pompeii on the other hand took our breath away. An absolute must and the guide was brilliant.

  • Wow, what a fantastic tour of the 2 biggest wonders in Italy. Our guide Francesco is extremely personable with very strong knowledge of the Amalfi Coast and generally of Pompeii. Francesco handed us off to an expert Pompeii guide that gave me a greater appreciation of the rich history and common day to day routine that I could never get from a National Geographic documentary. Positano was beautiful and Francesco's passion for his work made the trip fun! It's not cheap, but you certainly get your money's worth and more.

  • Good trip, would recommend.

  • Liked the tour as we were only spending 1 1/2 days in Sorrento, and really wanted to see the key highlights in the area. This tour covers the Amalfi coast as well as Pompeii, and was one of the few tours we found that covered both aspects, so was ideal.

  • This was our first trip. We were picked up at hotel in a small mini bus only four of us. Which was great.
    The drive along the coast road gave us some amazing and beautiful sights. However was a bit scary as it very close to the edge.
    Pompeii was amazing. Good shoes are a must as the whole area is cobles and rocks. We only done 4 hours that was enough as it was so hot .
    Would certainly recommend it

  • It took an email no reply and three phone calls to finally find out where and what time we were to be picked up for our tour. Because there were only four people signed up for this particular tour we basically had a taxi ride air conditioned along the Amalfi coast with no commentary from our driver who had very limited English. We only had 2 hrs in Amalfi and 1 hr in Positano where we had a quick lunch. It would have been nice to know some of the history of Amalfi and Positano which I thought we were getting. Again a taxi ride to Pompeii where we met our tour guide Roberta who was very knowledgeable about the history of Pompeii and we thoroughly enjoyed this part of our trip.

  • Great trip well organised. Both guides, one for Amalfi Coast and Guide for Pmpeii were well knowledge and gave good advise. I would recommend this trip and I would use aviator again.

  • Loved Amalfi. Loved Pompeii. Must see. I felt we were rushed at the end leaving Pompeii.

  • Great Trip, Great guides... HIGHLY recommended if you want to see the coast and Pompeii. Not only did we have fund with our guide he was knowledgeable and gave a great recommendation for lunch in Amalfi.
