What People Are Saying About Positano
guide was good and very knowledgable.. bus driver very carefull on windy bends. very good tour
It started pouring part way through our tour and our guide still made it very enjoyable. The level of knowledge about everything was great and it was nice to hear such passion about it.
Enjoyed Pompeii, mostly thanks to our great guide. Vesuvius was interesting, but probably not worth the long hard climb to get there.
Highly recommend this tour. It was easy and lovely! We got so much out of going to Pompeii with our wonderful guide, Alessandra. Thanks so much!
Andre and Carmel were outstanding local tour guides. The only way to do a tour, small group, comfortable mini bus and enough time to see the attractions. A+
