Pompeii and Herculaneum Private Tour This was our first time doing an independent outside of our cruise line. What a BLAST! Eight of us went off to Pompeii and Herculaneum with Giovanni (our driver).8 hour tour. This was the highlight of our 19 day Western Mediterranean Cruise. ( Age group) in our 60's. We like ruins and history and the private guide gave us a great descriptive picture of how life was like at the time of Mt Vesuvius' eruption. We all agreed that we enjoyed Herculaneum more because it was more emotional and intimate. We all immediately hit it off with Giovanni, and had lots of laughs. We would highly recommend this company, guide and definitely the driver! We would not hesitate about using their services again. Thanks Giovanni for making our tour so memorable. The Crazy Canadians! We won't forget you.

Simple Amazing...Bellissimo We just returned from our incredible trip in Italy and France. There were so many highlights to talk about but I wanted to say how incredibly pleased we were with Lovely Amalfi Coast Tours and most importantly with Giovanni, our driver. He has the most incredibly warm personality, speaks wonderful english (although I spoke italian with him) and has such in depth knowledge of the places we visited. He drove us to Pompeii first where we spent three hours, then off to Positano where he booked us in at a restaurant at the top of the cliff that had the most incredible view!! Our group spent a little too much time at the restaurant drinking wonderful wines and eating a most delicious meal, my favorite of the whole trip...once we were done we went to Beautiful Sorrento where we had a 90 minute opportunity to shop and eat gelato and simple do what we wanted. He was articulate and funny the entire time. His driving skills were amazing albeit we had a few moments going up the mountains where I didnt think we were going to make it (narrow winding roads) but he handeled them so well. We hope that if you use this company you may have the pleasure of having Giovanni as your driver/guide. It will be an incredible experience. I was on a shared tour by the way and met my fellow cruisers on Cruise Critic.com I recommend this site to get info on cruising and more importanly to meet others and share tours such as this one. We were 7 people and got along famously! Grazie Giovanni..ti auguro un bella vita!!!

We booked a private tour of the Amalfi Coast from our cruise ship - Naples Port. Our driver, Giovanni, was great -- informative, great personality, and experienced driver, punctual, and spoke English very well. He was very knowledgeable and provided recommedations when asked. He provided a schedule for each stop which gave us plenty of time to enjoy the sites we wanted to take in this trip. Since this was not our first time to Naples, we requested to go to Ravello, Amalfi, Positano and Sorrento. The scenery was spectacular

from Montreal

We arrived at the port of Salerno on Serenade of the Seas and was picked up by Giovanni. What an amazing tour guide! Very knowledgeable, friendly and polite throughout the entire tour. He stopped for photos and gave us enough time to spent in Positano and Sorrento and even recommended a good restaurant in Sorrento. From our booking via internet until our drop off at the port again was just so professional! Can recommend them 110%!!

from Seattle

This was the best tour of our 12 day mediterranean cruise. Our driver was soooo knowledgable and got us to both Herculeum (better than Pompei) and Pompei before the crowds did. He then took us to this AMAZING lunch on Mt. Vesuvius (cantina) and we had the best authentic meal of the trip. We got to get a private winery tour and taste amazing wine. Next we hiked up Mt. Vesuvius... it was so much fun! I would recommend this to anyone my husband and I had a blast!

“A day with Lovely Amalfi Tours in Pompeii, Sorrento and Positano” On our Eastern Mediterranean cruise, we had a day in Naples and decided to take in part of the Amalfi Coast and see Pompeii again. With advice of the company and the skillful driving by Giovanni, we were able to do both and return to the ship on time, despite the traffic delays. Because of our smaller vehicle, we climbed to heights in Positano that buses couldn't reach and had our favourite lunch of the trip at Trattoria La Tagliata--magnificent views, delicious home-style Italian food and very friendly staff! We hired a guide to meet us in Pompeii (arranged by Lovely Amalfi Tours). Our excellent driver Giovanni was very considerate and friendly. We enjoyed our day with him in Naples area and would recommend the tour service to anyone.
