The tour will begin after you meet your private driver who will be easily recognizable due to the sign on which will be written your name and our agency logo at the port where your cruise ship will be docked. After a brief presentation your private driver will accompany you at the luxurious vehicle where and will offer you every comfort you need. Furthermore he will give you important information about the travel and the places that you are going to visit. Finally, let's get started your dream Private Tour !

On the way to Pompeii, we will drive by Mt. Vesuvius, the volcano responsible for one of the most famous historical events in Italy. The old city of Pompeii is located at the base of the Vesuvius and was flourish during the Period of the Roman Empire. After the eruptions of the Volcano in 79 B.C the city has been destroyed and covered by ashes and lapillus. The Archeological dig started in 1748 and in three centuries only 3/5 part of the city has been discovered. Now the city has declared World Heritage Site by UNESCO and 3.750.000 tourists each year come to visit it.

Now we are going to leave this amazing city for another kind of experience. Thank to its particular climate, the warm soil, its unique florae, the area is amazingly fertile and full of vineyards which produce incredible wines exported in all the world. With this tour you can arrange a visit to the best winery of the region, and probably of the world. The tour will include tasting of wines as “Lachrimae Christi” or “Capafresca” along with an amazing Italian light lunch made with local ingredients.

The eruption of the Vesuvius, that destroyed Pompeii, hit the city of Herculaneum too with a huge tsunami of dirt and lava. But unlike Pompeii, the city of Herculaneum preserved wooden buildings and any sort of goods. Therefore for archeological studies is a very important site. Sculptures, paints, vases and so on are now in the “Archeological Museum of Naples” and in the “Antiquarium”. Ancient tradition connected Herculaneum with the name of the Greek hero Heracles, an indication that the city was of Greek origin. There is, however, historical evidence that toward the end of the 6th century BC a primitive nucleus of Oscan-speaking inhabitants came under Greek hegemony there and that in the 4th century BC Herculaneum came under the domination of the Samnites. The city became a Roman municipium in 89 BC, when, having participated in the Social War (“war of the allies” against Rome), it was defeated by Titus Didius, a legate of Lucius Cornelius Sulla. 

Before leaving your private driver please agree upon the time to leave in order to reach your cruise ship on time. During the ride to the port, you can reminisce about your lovely day mixed with ancient Roman history and the best wine tasting of the area!

I had read a lot about which company to go with prior to our cruise through the Mediterranean. I'm very pleased that we went with Lovely Amalfi Tours. Enrico was the lucky one to guide us around and my wife and I had such a great day around Sorrento, Positano and Ravello (the highlight if the day was lunch at Graal Restaurant ). Unbelievable food and the view....wow! Enrico was incredibly knowledgable, funny and friendly...and he can sing....oh sol a mio with gusto!.. thankyou for a memorable day we will cherish.

We spent 2 amazing days touring the Amalfi Coast thanks to Giovanni. We highly recommend his company. Gio was very professional and knowledgeable. He took us to all the "must see" locations along the coast. Our comfort was his number one concern. I would highly recommend this company for anyone wanting to see the best of the Amalfi Coast.

from Perth, Australia

Had an amazing tour with our driver and guide Vincenzo. Vincenzo was prompt, extremely informative and polite which made our day one not to forget. He took us to the best view points for photos, allowed the right amount of time in Positano, Amalfi and Ravello for us to enjoy. He selected a delicious restaurant in Amalfi on the waterfront for us and the price was perfect. We really enjoyed all our conversations with Vinni and certainly a day we won't forget.

If you want to see the true Amalfi coast there is no one better to help you explore its jaw dropping beauty than Giovanni, our wonderful, authentic Italian guide. Travelling with my best friend, he tailored the day to meet everything on our wish list. From gorgeous photo opportunities along the Coastline to sharing a delicious meal under the vines in a very lovely, family run winery on Vesuvius; we spent the whole day enjoying hls great knowledge of the area and wonderful hospitality. He also treated us to the best lemon Granita in the whole of Italy. Felt like we had spent the day with a friiend; laughing for much of it. A truly memorable day we will cherish forever. We will happily recommend him and the Lovely Amalfi Tours to all our mates down under! P.S If you ask him; he will even treat you to a song or 2.

We had a wonderful day with Giovanni. He took us to Positano, Sorrento and Herculenium. We were a group of 4 and the van was very comfortable. Giovanni is very knowledgeable and he went beyond what was necessary to make us happy. We will recommend him for anyone who wants to visit the area. Pascualle, Francesco, Simona LaMamona and Liza

Cruise Ship Excursion - July 2015 Enrico really made this trip very special. He was extremely accommodating to the diverse group of people we had from our Cruise Ship. One family wanted to see Sorrento, another Positano, and another Pompeii. He graciously accommodated us all. It was a fantastic trip, with lots of laughs and smiles. A very special day with a superb guide!

from Clermont

My husband booked a tour of Positano, Sorrento, & Pompeii with Lovely Amalfi Coast Tours after finding them on Trip Advisor. This was our first tour on a week long cruise, so we weren't sure what to expect. Our drivers were Giovanni and Gaetano, who were friendly, knowledgeable, professional, and made our day truly special. It was a national holiday the day we went and Giovanni and Gaetano arranged the day so we never got stuck in traffic. It seemed that every location we went to was not crowded when we arrived, but was very crowded when we were leaving. This made our day and experience, all more enjoyable. One example, they arranged for us to have lunch at a nice location in Sorrento. Our table was all set when we arrived and we were treated like royalty. They stopped along the way to allow us to take photos of scenic routes and recommended a great place to buy limoncello. I would highly recommend this company as this was the best part of our trip. It made us want to return to the Amalfi Coast one day.
