3-Day South of Italy Tour
Sep 2019
Very well organized and you get a lot for the money. There are transfers between mini-buses and coaches, which at times might was annoying, but our tour guide Valerie made it very easy and pleasant. First tour is Naples/ Pompei which was amazing. Then they bring you to your hotel (we upgraded hotel) on beautiful cliff side on Sorrento! Breakfast and Dinner were very good. The Tour of Capri and Anacapri were very nice (unfortunately the Blue Grotto was closed due to high tides). We had a beautiful time in Sorrento and Capri-- both have breath taking views! Worth the money for getting to visit South of Italy! They also pick you up and drop you off to your hotel if you are in center of Rome.

Dear Guest, thank you so much for your detailed review which will benefit us and the community that supports us. This escorted three-day tour (also called Dolcevita tour) encompasses Naples, Pompeii, Sorrento, and Capri (with Blue Grotto) and is a great compromise to get an idea and see the highlights of the south of our country, the Bel Pease, if one doesn't get to spend a long period in Italy. We're happy you enjoyed your time with us, we hope to see you soon! Best regards, the Gray Line I Love Rome Team

Good value if you book through Viator
Very well organized and thorough. Easy transfers between mini-busses and coaches. The bus guides Valeria and Lydia were nice and friendly. In Naples we were joined on the bus by the local guide Lena from Naples who explained the sights of Naples and then guided us through Pompei. She was very knowledgeable but overbearing at times with a lot of repetition. She became annoying at times especially around the brothel. She made a big fuss about and repeated that the children (all two of them) cover their eyes or must look down. She refused to discuss the brothel and kept saying “look at the pictures “. All in all, Pompei was fascinating. Dinner at the hotel in Sorrento was fair. Service was great but a bit stuffy. Although two dinners were included we ate at Pepi Bianco the second night and had a fabulous dinner. Capri was fun and very crowded this time of year. Great views and some shopping but really not enough time to do shopping and chairlift. Blue Grotto was fun and unforgettable experience. Our guide Sasha tried to be an entertainer instead of a guide. He spent too much time speaking Spanish and not enough English. All in all, we enjoyed tour and would recommend highly.

Poor communication and organisation
May 2019 • Friends
Tour started with pick up from hotel and then transfer to area to meet the bus. Lack of communication wasn't great at this point and never really improved. Both English and Spanish along with day trippers to pompei were all put into same bus. Bus ride was fine, stopped enough for comfort. Late lunch (2pm) not too bad but wait and lack of organisation was frustrating at pompei. Only 2 hours to explore pompei with a guide. No more time. Day trippers left from pompei while those going to sorrento once again waited both outside the bus and then on the bus. No real tour leader throughout the trip, we had a least 5 different people introduce themselves as a leader, to then disappear a few hours later. The leader for the time being then went through everyone individually on the bus (while it was running and we were sitting in our wet clothes) for approx. 40 mins. We then left to go to sorrento with just the bus driver and no leader. We were not fully aware of the next days schedule either. Once in sorrento the grand hotel Vesuvio was wonderful and nothing could be faulted from the hotels prospective. Dinner included was very large but good as was breakfast. 2nd day of tour included a trip to capri with yet another tour leader and also Spanish speaking mixed together. Blue grotto was closed unfortunately, due to no fault of the tour company (weather). The alternative provided was a boat trip which was interesting enough. Onto capri with 40 mins given to explore, then onto anacarpi where lunch was given (fine, fast service). We were then given 1.30 to explore and transport back. 3rd day included was free time with many choosing a day trip to amalfi coast for 50 euro each in a private car. Pick up from hotel and transport back to Pompei and then onto Rome with return around 8pm. Overall the price of the tour was not reflected in what they offered. Very poor communication and organisation left us wondering what was happening and who would even be there to help us (why we paid for a tour in the first place). Wonderful places to visit, a rushed tour and apart from transport and a nice hotel this tour offers not a lot else.

Driving Holiday Naples to Capri
Sep 2018
I hired a Ford Focus in Naples after my flight arrived there. Drove through built up modern flats and tower blocks to emerge with sea views and wind fields into rock walled roads. Not for the faint heart I would say take a bus. Once out on the Amafi coast the beauty of the scene is amazing and blue sky meets bluer sea. The road evens out and you come to Sorrento the most perfect village town ever to witness.Looking down the harbour wall the sea is a long long way down. I had coffee and my eyes ran around a marvelous place with green walls in planted tubs in centre of road selling foods of all sorts and coffee.Big statue of saint Antony stands as divisional marker as one side of town is at his back the other at his front.Only what he see is blessed according to the public. i traveled on to Capri that day and loved it. For those who are old enough you drive past Gracie Fields Villa and can look into was the 1940s actress garden. Her tomb is there too. On ward back to Sorrento as i had booked hotel room and dinner in a place behind the Saint at lesser cost and just as good. Many of these Hotels are booked up by tourist agents for guests. It was out of main season so managed one night in peace. I would go again at drop of a hat but. Please read my blog sirkevinshistoricfacts.com.

Southern Italian Coast
May 2018
Rome is a very old but crowded metropolitan city. This city is beautiful & needless to say steeped in history but honestly my favorite quaint little city is further north. I speak of Assisi & the entire city is walkable, people are very friendly & welcoming. Now, back to the southern coast. Pompeii is also very crowded but oh so worth your time. Very interesting & I suggest you spend the extra monies & visit with a guided tour. You must take the time to visit the “red light” district. Yes...you heard me correctly...”the red light district”! We stayed right on the Sorrento coast in a hotel that we originally a cement factory. Again, I suggest a guided tour for traveling the coast road from Sorrento southbound. Very narrow two lane (some areas become one lane) coastal road. The scenes from the road are spectacular!!! Picture postcard scenes is every direction from villas jutting out on sea cliffs, to lemon & orange trees loaded with fruit. Awesome visual treats in every direction. Then we have Capri. Can I say money, money, money. A ferry takes you to the Isle of Capri. Expect to spend the day & don’t forget a light jacket, even in summer. Soak up as much of the island as you have time but by all means ...leave time to take THE LIFT to AnaCapri. The views are spectacular. Enjoy your visits .

Carrani tours
Jun 2018
had a terrific time. the tour guides were knowledgeable, the buses were on time and very comfortable, the tour company kept us informed and were easy to communicate with and always helpful. Except for the first day lunch the meals were fine, and the upgraded hotel Imperial Tramonto in Sorrento was exquisite. More than worth the price
