This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Pompeii Archaeological Park, Porta Marina (via Villa dei Misteri), 80045 Pompeii Italy

Wander the fully-preserved streets of Pompeii on a guided tour. This thriving port town was frozen in time when it was engulfed by the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius in 79 A.D.

View the death casts of people caught in the eruption and peek into shops, temples, public baths, and maybe even a brothel (if suitable for the group).

Duration: 2 hours

Stop At: Positano, Positano, Amalfi Coast, Province of Salerno, Campania

Following in the footsteps of literary greats like Shelley, Goethe and Steinbeck, you’ll be free to explore this little town on foot, sampling its incredible seafood, browsing the fashionable boutiques, or ordering bespoke, handmade sandals.

Duration: 2 hours 40 minutes

Stop At: Amalfi Coast Drive, Via Lorenzo Di Amalfi, 84011, Amalfi Italy

After Pompeii, it’s back into the bus for one of the most unforgettable drives of your life down the hairpin turns and panoramic vistas of the Amalfi coast. It won’t take long for you to see why this is considered Italy’s most scenic drive (although certainly not the easiest to navigate - you’ll be glad you have a driver!).

We left from Rome very early, the trip was expected to be 12 hours. We had a very nice and comfortable Mercedes van and an excellent driver. Our tour guide was Georgia. She was exceptional. Her knowledge of the history and areas of our visit were also part of the entire package which made for a wonderful trip. We were amazed with our visit to Pompeii, it should be on everyone's list when visiting Italy. The Amalfi coast "Sorrento" was a picture postcard. The drive along the sea was beyond words. We spent a few hours in the city of Sorrento, this was to have lunch and shop, the shopping was great and so was the food. Don't forget to sample the Lemoncello here. If you go to Rome take a full day and travel on this excursion, you won't regret it.

Great tour - Paolo, our guide through Pompeii is very personable, knowledgeable and funny. Our group loved visiting Pompeii and Sorrento. But the van is pretty uncomfortable, especially if you happen to get a seat in back. It was a long day, but worth it to see Pompeii.

This is the perfect tour to take from Rome. The beautiful Amalfi coast and our perfect friendly , nice very professional guide with a lot of information and so enthusiastic about his job that even took time to take a picture of us with the coast view in the background . Cannot recall his name but is tall , thin and wears glasses and speaks perfect English . Believed he said had lived some time in either New York or England . The archeologist from Pompeii who gave us the tour was not only very informative but makes you feel as if you are transferred back in time and the inhabitants who lived there come to live in your mind and the passion for her career shows through . She was also made it funny / entertaining

Meeting point was easy to locate and guides very available.It was a long day but very full of wonderful memoires.Our guide for most of the tour was Antonella and she explained the trip with rest stops and sights seen as we drove buy. Knowledgable. Time at Amalfi was plenty long enough to grasp a feeling for the place. The booklet that was given to us was very helpful. The tour guide at Pompei picked a good pace to see overall site. Would like to have had a map showing the layout. Overall great trip. The driver was amazing as well. Those roads!!!!

While I was in Italy for a week and a half, this trip proved to be one of the highlights. The sights were amazing and while it was a long day, I didn't feel overly rushed and am very glad we went. Our tour leader Giorgia was knowledgeable and very patient with slower walkers in the group. I would highly recommend tours from Walks as both trips we did with them had the best guides of vacation. This is a big contrast to our local tour guides through Trafalgar who didn't care if they left people behind and were rude to each other and the group. I look for Walks when booking tours for all future travels.

We loved our day trip to Positano and Pompei! It is a long drive but definitely worth it and would highly recommend it. Positano was such a beautiful gem and we really enjoyed our time there! I only wish we had more time on our own there - especially with getting (a quick) lunch, the time flew by! Pompeii was an unexpected surprise and learned a lot. Our tour guide for Pompeii, Elizabetta, was incredible, very knowledgable and professional and a lot of fun! This was a highlight of our trip. Thank you so much :)

This was the best tour we did in Italy, From the beginning to end, the tour guide Chiara (Pronounced Kiara) was phenomenal. She new everything about the region we visited from wine to local foods. She was experienced, and fluent in both Italian and English perfectly. She greeted us with a warm smile, and made the trip pleasurable for all of us. Anna our tour guide in Pompeii was extremely knowledgeable and passionate on the history of the Ruins of Pompeii. I highly recommend this tour. we were very lucky to have great weather in October. when we got to Positano, we were able to wet our feet in the water down by the beach, and enjoyed a great lunch afterwards. We will be back to this beautiful town.

Our tour guide in Pompeii was amazing. She knew a lot about the area and even excavated it during her career. She provided wonderful info. At the coast we had enough time to to eat and enjoy the amazing views.

The tour consisted of a 2.5 hour van ride to the site, a walking tour though the ruins with a local expert, then a short drive to Positano for lunch, then back to Rome. The van was comfortable and included a rest stop half way. Pompeii was spectacular and the site was not crowded due to light rain. We bought ponchos at the site so the rain was not an issue. The guide in Pompeii was very knowledgeable and interesting. The trip to Positano was very picturesque and the recommended restaurant was excellent.

This was a fantastic day trip and well worth the money. After travelling to Pompeii in an airconditioned minibus, we had a guided tour through the ancient city for approx 2 hours. We then drove to Positano on thr Amalfi coast which is breaktaking, the views are incredible. Our tour leader Georgia was very informative, spoke perfect English and was extremely professional, friendly and helpful. Thanks to Georgia for making it such a great day!

Our guide was very informative, and also gave us time to relax on the bus. Was extremely helpful and made sure everyone had chance to ask for advise at the end of the tour. A wonderful day, with delightful sights and we learned a lot.

Although we couldn’t make to Positano due to rock slides that closed some roads, they added sorrento to the agenda and the entire day was awesome. Pompeii is a must see. Guides were great!

Long but worth it. Pompeii was a great way to see an actual Roman city and our guide was very good. The views from Sorrento were breathtaking.

This bus tour to Pompeii and the Amalfi Coast Drive was outstanding. We were informed as we loaded on the bus that there was a fire preventing us from visiting Positano ... but we were given a stop in Sorrento instead! No trouble or interruption. Our guide was so accommodating and informative. Lots of fun information and history on our drive south. He made everyone feel comfortable and had us all laughing most of the way. The expert archeologist who took us through Pompeii was wonderful. So many details and interesting facts. And who wouldn't love a few hours in Sorrento. Overall ... this was a day well spent! Loved the guide!

The drive was amazing. Both the tour guide and the driver were very nice. I enjoyed their company. They stopped at many points for the pictures. The guide at Pompeii was also very knowledgeable and knew a lot about the city and answered every question. Positano is a beautiful city and well worth a visit
