EXTENDED TOUR DESCRIPTION

JUST ONE DAY TO VISIT THE SOUTH? MAKE IT COUNT!

You only have one day to explore Pompeii and the Amalfi Coast, so make it count! Take the pressure off and make the most of your short time in this beautiful and fascinating part of the country with our guided Pompeii tour from Rome. You’ll embark on an in-depth exploration of the ruins at Pompeii and a relaxing drive along the beautiful Amalfi Coast, with time to let your hair down and explore the jewelbox seaside town of Positano.

Including air-conditioned round-trip transport, guides and tickets, we’ve taken care of all the details. You'll even have one of our friendly English-speaking tour leaders to accompany you throughout the day, so all you need to worry about is stocking up on limoncello and handmade shoes in Positano.

DISCOVER WORLD-FAMOUS RUINS ON OUR GUIDED POMPEII TOURS FROM ROME.

Few places send shivers up your spine like Pompeii, the thriving Roman city frozen in time by the volcanic eruption of 79 A.D. The volcanic ash preserved Pompeii’s buildings, streets, mosaics, and frescoes, making Pompeii a site unlike any other in Italy: It’s a complete ancient city you can explore just as if it were 2,000 years ago!

You'll meet your tour leader and comfy air-conditioned bus in Rome and head straight to Pompeii. Here your tour leader will hand you over to a certified Pompeii tour guide, carefully chosen from the ranks for their knowledge, enthusiasm and storytelling skills. All of our guides are passionate archaeologists and most have worked on the excavations themselves, so you can trust them to give you the inside scoop. Together you’ll explore the best of Pompeii, from the Roman Forum and the brothel to the world-famous plaster casts of those killed in the eruption. You'll even pay a special visit to Pompeii amphitheater, not visited on most Pompeii tours. Feel the site come to life with your guide’s dramatic stories and fascinating anecdotes about what life was like before and during the eruption.

ENJOY ITALY’S MOST SCENIC DRIVE

We time your visit to Pompeii to avoid the worst crowds, so either before or after your Pompeii tour, you'll head further south. Your tour leader will accompany you as you revel in the stunning views and exciting twists and turns of a panoramic drive down the Amalfi Coast. Along the way you’ll hear stories about life in this beautiful region of Italy and get some background about our next stop – lovely Positano. A pastel resort town perched on the cliffs, Positano is renowned for its romance and elegance.

Follow in the footsteps of Shelley, Goethe, Steinbeck, and the town’s myriad other famous visitors as you climb Positano’s winding staircases and explore its narrow streets. Poke into the upscale boutiques, order sandals made to fit your foot or relax over a fresh fish lunch, all the while admiring unbeatable views.

RELAX ON A HASSLE-FREE DAY TRIP FROM ROME.

From the moment you arrive at our meeting point in central Rome to when you return that evening, with a full stomach and head filled with vistas and history, we’ll take great care of you.

We’ve organized comfortable, air-conditioned transport in a small bus because larger buses are a nightmare on the winding Amalfi Coast roads. We’ve kept our groups small, with a maximum of only 15 people (often a lot fewer), so your tour will be intimate and you’ll get to know your whole group.

For your Pompeii tour we’ve arranged skip the line tickets so you won’t have to wait in long lines and, if it’s busy in Pompeii in the morning (as it sometimes can be with cruise ship arrivals) we’ll be flexible, reversing the order of your day trip to be sure that you’re getting the best experience.

The most important element of any tour though, is your guide, which is why we’ve spent years building a team of the best, most passionate, fun and enthusiastic tour leaders. So you can sit back, relax and enjoy yourself in the knowledge that you’re getting the best possible experience of southern Italy on our hassle-free day trips from Rome.

Amazing trip. The guide Serena is a very friendly, warm person.
This was my favorite tour because I have always wanted to visit Pompeii. I loved all the Walks of Italy tours I took.
Was a great day.
Really liked Brunella ( our local guide in Pompeii). Great tour!
Great day! Wonderful tour and guides!
The tour is beautiful but the drive is a little scary. Our driver was extremely talented and professional!
Great experience, too long on the bus......but worth it.
My guide was very informative. I appreciated the sensitivity that he showed when my children were around while in the Red District of Pompeii.
The bus tour guide was great as was the driver. They just made it a wonderful trip. The Pompeii guide's command of English was weak and thus we garnered less information and were not able to see as much as she searched for the correct words with every sentence having "ok" interjected.
It was an excellent tour and would recommend highly to friends and family.
Georgia and Anna were fantastic as well as our driver. They were very informative and helpful and the entire day was an absolute delight. I would not hesitate in recommending this tour and any tours with Walks of Italy with anyone who was interested. FANTASTIC!!!
Ilaria was amazing, and Julia very informative and pleasant. A great day out in two special places, despite truly awful traffic on the way back to Rome and a five-plus hour trip. Marco was a good driver and everyone was appreciative of his very long day at the wheel.
also the highlight of our trip to italy
Anna was a most friendly host and her knowledge of Pompeii was really extensive. She really made my tour memorable and enjoyable. Thank you!
Excellent guide as well as a very skilled driver (Roberto). Will join again!
Excellent tour. Guides Hilary and Giorgia, together with our driver Paolo, made that day one to be remembered. Pompei was much more huge than I expected and the drive Amalfi coast was extremely breathtaking. Definitely got my money's worth.
My tour guide was Andrea, and he was great!
Pompeii was incredible to see and the Amalfi Coast was beautiful as well. This tour was a perfect way to see both in one day from Rome especially if you have limited time.
Perfect tour and day! Everything was so well planned and the tour guide gave informative talks. Well paced and the weather couldn't have been better either!
Francesca was marvelous, and what a perfect way to at least get a glimpse of the gorgeous Amalfi Coast.
Francesca was fabulous! Very informative, sweet, and professional. We had a wonderful day.
Wonderful day with great guides !
Great day and learned a lot.
Best tour ever!!
We loved this tour! We have done walks of NY last year and so enjoyed it we did this one on our recent visit to Italy. Our guides were awesome! I would highly recomend Walks of Italy and Walks of NY to everyone! Thank you!
Wonderful tour
Group size of 14 was perfect for the tour. Bus was very comfortable. Both the guides and driver was very professional and courteous. Experience was very educational for the young and the not so young. The agenda was full but not overly burdensome. Overall, a very good experience.
Francesa was fantastic (knowledgeable and willing to answer any questions) as was Rhian and Marco.
Paolo was fabulous! The driver very courteous and Georgi very informative, helpful and a delight. It was a great tour.
Georgia & Paolo were amazing. Although it was a long day (travel wise), the knowledge and again the passion displayed by Paolo for the areas we were shown was excellent. There was no script and they were sharing their knowledge & stories as locals.
The guide was most pleasant and knowledgeable, we enjoyed her tour of the city. I wish I could remember her name. Georgia was very helpful and we appreciated her advice for additional places to visit and dine in Rome. Thank you for you services it was an enjoyable day. Mark
Giulia and Francesca were excellent guides!! We enjoyed very much the tour.
Great tour of Pompeii. Lots of good information. Appreciated being able to travel one way to Positano. Thought the guide's repeated encouragement to buy tourist items or try limoncello a bit much.
Guide was fabulous - very informative
Again, another great tour
Our sincere thanks to Kylie for coordinating the tour, to the driver and especially to the wonderful Illaria who took us through the wonders of Pompeii and Positano. Thank you Illaria. 12 out of 10.

We loved everything about the tour! Fantastic tour guides who were very informative, and the sights of Pompeii and the Amalfi Coast were amazing!! Thank you so much for the experience that we will forever treasure!
Amazing tour, very long day 7am to 8:30 pm. Take drinks and food you can leave them on the bus. Smooth process nice people. Would have loved to have more time at each location.
Amazing!! This was one of the highlights of our trip to Italy. Pompeii was my favorite by far. Walks of Italy has the most amazing tour guides. Highly recommend any of their tours!!!
One of the highlights of our whole trip! Breathtaking views along the coast. Take your swimsuit to play in the Mediterranean in Positano. Pompeii was much more that I imagined it to be. "Hillary" was sooo much fun, good photographer, and very knowledgeable guide!
Excellent tour guide for Pompei and Positano; he was very knowledgeable of the Pompei ruins and very friendly with good sense of humour. He made some good recommendations for eating while in Positano. The co-ordinator for the trip was also very nice and helpful.
Had a fantastic day exploring Positano and Pompeii. Great and knowledgeable guide. Long drive, but definitely worth it!
The team including Giulia, Tony the driver and Francesca was excellent! It was so much fun and we would do it again. Congratulations to all!

Both Illaria and Andrea were Awesome...couldn't ask for better guides!
Amazing experience. The tour guides were very welcoming and knowledgable.
Giuliani and Hilaria were both highly knowledgeable and helpful. Their personality allowed me to feel comfortable in asking questions and having my personal needs met.
This could have been at rally good tour, but it wasn't....it was an awesome tour! Your entire crew was excellent, and Illaria, with her enthusiasm and love of Italy and Pompeii made this our favorite day in Italy!!!!
Ilaria and Georgia were both delightful (as we've come to expect from Walks of Italy tours). I would have liked to spend more time in Pompeii, but I'm pretty sure I would say that even if I'd been there all day. Thank you for another fantastic day!
We found the tour very well organised and extremely informative.
Francesca was knowledgeable and made Pompeii come to life! Positano was breathtaking! Would highly recommend this tour.

Great itinerary and wonderful guides. Our Pompei guide, Paolo, was particularly knowledgeable and his enthusiasm for his subject was infectious. My only (slight) grumble is that leg room in our mini-bus was very tight. Otherwise, a wonderful tour. Thankyou.
Loved this tour. Everything was perfect. Amount of time at each location was great and so much was packed into the day.
This tour was the jewel of our trip to Italy. Positano is just plain beautiful. Our driver and Mauro our guide in the van were very punctual and informed about the area. Our guide in Pompey was good too. Mauro went the extra mile to keep us informed about Italy, its traditions, folklore etc.

We've taken a couple of day tours during our trip and we really, really enjoyed this one to Pompeii and the Amalfi Coast. Our guide, Nancy, was very informative, without being too dry. She told very interesting stories and was very personable and approachable. 2 thumbs up!
Excellent tour guide! Throughout the years I have been on many tours and Andrea has been one of the best guides ever. He was very thorough, genuine, and personable which is hard to find in a tour guide. Luigi was an excellent driver and was very sweet. I would definitely do this tour again.

It was very interesting and enjoyable. We enjoyed Georgia the first introductory guide and Hilda our most helpful and informative, interesting guide at the Pompeii buried city. And our driver Antonio always staying with our belongings.
Eliana is a very knowledgeable Pompeii guide. Erica was awesome for the ride down and back. *We only had five of us on the tour instead of our scheduled seven because my father had been hospitalized.

Fantastic day trip to Pompeii and Positano! John handled the coordination and arrangements with professionalism and humor. Anna, our Pompeii guide, was incredible; so knowledgable and so much fun. We had a wonderful day.
We enjoyed this very much. Having a guide for Pompeii was helpful and Anna was very knowledgeable. The Amalfi Coast is stunning and an excellent part of the trip. Although it is a long day, it was worth it.

We were very pleased with our tour. Paolo was wonderful, especially with our 9.5 year old. We appreciated his kindness and enthusiasm, and the fact the he worked hard to keep it PG about certain parts of the tour.
We enjoyed the tour and will look for similar tours in our future vacations. The Guide at Pompeii is professional and patient.
Great job we enjoyed it
This was an excellent day trip for the two of us. We enjoyed Francesca's guided tour. We only wish we has more time on the coast.
Ilaria was an excellent guide -- very knowledgeable, engaging, and personable. We learned so much from her and loved our tour of Pompei and our free time in gorgeous Positano.
Love it. Very nice. Specially Amalfi Coast. Just wish would had more time there. 2 hours is not enough for lunch and shopping or sightseeing. Maybe we should it done Amalfi Coast first and after Pompeii. Enjoy both of them. Tour quide was excellent.
We had an amazing guide who seemed to be able to answer every question! This tour is worth every penny; absolutely beautiful and full of history.
The Pompeii tour was fascinating. Our guide was A+. Loved Posatano, and hats off to our excellent driver -- negotiating all those twisting turns. A most memorable day!
I would highly recommend this tour. The tour guides were personable and friendly. The tour started promptly, the vans were comfortable. The tour of Pompeii was excellent and the drive down the Amalfi Coast was breathtaking.
The guide, Hiliary is a very nice and informative person . She's ready to help the guests at any time , willing to answer our questions . She tries to introduce all the best attractions/ things in Positano, helping us get the most experience within a limited amount of travelling time.
Francesca was terrific. Her genuine interest in Pompei was evident and infectious; she was informative and witty. We thought she was one of the best guides we've ever had.
Fantastic tour,well worth the money we payed.Everything was well organised. The guide was excellent at his job. Pompeii was amazing sight to see. The drive to Postinio was stunning as was the beautiful scenery at Postinio. thank you for a wonderful day.I would highly recommend.
Excellent trip. Knowledgable guides and good drivers.

Ilaria was a fantastic and knowledgeable guide for the Pompeii tour. Positano was a perfect spot to relax after Pompeii. Highly recommend!
This tour was wonderful. The busses were comfortable and the tour guides were so informative. Everyone who worked there was very kind and helpful. The tour is definitely worth what you pay. I learned a lot and I had a great time.
The tour was amazing! Ilaria was an absolutely fantastic guide. I would do it again in a heartbeat.
Well organized. Guide was kind and friendly. Informative and easy to follow. Wonderful day tour.
Our group had a fantastic time touring Pompeii and visiting Positano on the Amalfi Coast. Our driver and tour guide were both extremely professional and very accommodating of our needs and preferences. We were very pleased with the value for the money and time we spent on our journey from Rome!
My favorite due to Pompeii. I loved Francesca and her great and vast knowledge of Pompeii and the Amalfi coast. All of the guides were excellent and friendly
Francesca was a great tour guide. Georgia, our tour coordinator, was great too. She was kind, informative, friendly. I will recommend this tour to everyone.
Anna was AMAZING! She asked questions of us to know how much information we wanted and then proceeded to give us a living history tour. I would book this tour again and any tour that Anna guided. Our driver Paulo was also very pleasant and helpful. Thank you for the wonderful tour.
Excellent guide and tour
Wish it wasn't so far so that we could have stayed in Positano longer. But you can't do anything about that:)
Great tour guides and tour!
Francesca was wonderful. Everything about this tour was great! Georgia and Roberto were. Both very helpful to make sure we were well taken care of. Thanks for a wonderful experience. I've already recommended the tour and the company to others.
Both guides--the lady that picked us up in Rome as well as the lady who met us in Pompeii--excellent and friendly
Trip hostess and guide both did a great job.
Loved everything about the tour! Would highly recommend. The driver, Roberto, was amazing!! Those streets are very curvy and he did a great job navigating. Our guides (I can't remember the female in Pompeii) and Andrea were very knowledgable and courteous. Would recommend!
Fantastic day tour which provided us with a taste of Pompeii and the Amalfi from Rome, we will be back to visit this region of Italy in more depth.
Very nice tour. I liked the amount of free time available in Positano.
Eliana was a fantastic guide. Very knowledgeable and thorough and made sure we got the most out of our time.
The trip was very interesting and very well organized. The guides were knowledgeable and spoke good English. We were only 13 people in the group which was ok.
What a card! She related Pompeii to every day life and made it real for us....and fun!
Rosa was excellent! She knew so much and has a great desire to pass that on.
Pristine Sistine - guide was talking and moving too fast. However, overall we enjoyed all three tours.
The pompeii and positano tour was great and our tour guide Ilaria was amazing. She was very knowledgable and enthusiastic.
Ilaria is excellent. Full of knowledge about Pompeii. Was very enjoyable to spend the day with her touring Pompeii and Amalfi Coast
Hillary was great and did a terrific job!
Very well organised with a knowledgeable guide.
Under very stressful circumstances (very heavy rainfall) the guide at Pompeii kept her focus and completed the tour. We were all a little wet but that part of the tour was a great memory. The remainder of the tour on the Amalfi Coast was as promised.
The Amalfi Coast / Pompeii tour was a long day but excellent. We had quality guides who all spoke English well and made sure everyone was accounted for throughout the day. Pompeii was very interesting and the history of the area was delivered informatively by Francesca. Thanks!!
Francesca was a wonderful and knowledgeable guide. The tour was well organised and we left Rome right on time. I would highly recommend the trip to anyone wanting a great balance of Pompeii and the Amalfi coast.
Our tour guide Hilaria was amazing. We thoroughly enjoyed the tour of Pompeii. Positano was beautiful and the entire tour was absolutely worthwhile.
I find the Tour absolutely fascinating. I could not have asked for a better Tour Guide and the driver and coordinator were both excellent. Thank you all for making it both a fun day and the wonderful trip back in time from an absolutely wonderful and knowledgeable Tour Guide Thankyou
Anna was an absolute treasure and made the long walk around Pompeii lively and interesting. I would only suggest that you mention in the tour description that there is a great deal of walking involved.
Hillary was an excellent and very knowledgeable guide. She really made Pompeii come alive! Also, our bus driver Roberto was amazing. He navigated the Amalfi Drive with ease and always made us feel safe. Our coordinator was very helpful and knowledgeable as well.
Fabulous tour! Everyone was great, the guide the coordinator and even our driver!
Anna was very informative and knowledgeable about Pompeii. Along with her charming personality, patience, and excellent command of the English language, she made the day memorable and enjoyable.
Tour coordinator, Ms. Georgia (not sure about name spelling) and tour guide Ms. Anna were excellent and passionate at their job.
Very nicely organized...the views during the drive were amazing!
Our driver and guide were both excellent and we had a fantastic day. It's probably too much to attempt in one day, but that was all the time we had available.
all I can say is fascinating! The bus ride was very long, but it was a wonderful trip. Lots of information.
The guides and driver were very professional. I had a wonderful time.
Great guide. Very informative.
Was an excellent trip, both the driver and the guide were excellent.
Great tour and very knowledgable guide. I loved the small group tour as it provided far better opportunity to ask questions. Pity there wasn't more time in Pompeii as there was so much more to see.
Our trip organizer, John, was excellent at managing our tour. Our local guide was very personable and knowledgeable about the sites in Pompeii and the Amalfi Coast. This was a great way to get a "taste" of these two locations in a day trip from Rome.
Tour guide and driver were great!
Excellent tour with knowledgeable guide. Great driver too. Highly recommended.
Great time. Excellent suggestion to do Positano first before Pompeii. Weather got not as good in Pompeii but the thunderstorm over Mount Vesuvius was dramatic at the end of the day!!!
Really great tour! Another hour at Positano would have been fabulous, but we were very happy with everything!
Loved the tour and our guides were great.
Great tour! Wish we had more time in Positano!!!
Hilaria was great. Her expertise about Pompeii was invaluable and definitely made the experience. The only complaint was that the bus was a little tight with 14 people.
The day was too hot but enjoyed the tour.
Illaria is a superb guide - funny, bubbly and delivered the right quantity of interesting information.
Excellent communication, very informative guide which ensured a memorable tour.
Ilaria was an excellent guide, very knowledgeable and engaging.
Fabulous tour, fabulous guide!
Great tour if you want to have an idea of the Amalfi coast and Pompeii. After this tour, you will want to come back in Italy to visit for a longer time the south of Italy. Ilaria was nice, and was giving interesting information ! Thank you!
What a wonderful way to be toured in Italy. Our guide was wonderful. It was a long day but worth it.
This tour is a very long day ! But worth doing ! The guides were great !! Amazing sites !!!
The tour was very well organised, with an excellent guide who was helpful and friendly. Despite the heat and the very long day due to delays (which nobody can help) we had a thoroughly enjoyable day and are very glad we took the tour.
Loved everything about the tour. Francesca, our guide was very knowledgable and approachable. I would recommend this tour to my friends.
Guide was very nice and entertained us with her stories and explanation. Van was comfortable.
The organizer was wonderful. The driver was fantastic. The van was comfortable. The tour guide was knowledgeable and interesting. All in all a great day for us!!

Truly enjoyed this tour. The guide was exceptionally knowledgeable and eager to share.

Liked it a lot. Its a beautiful tour.
The scenery and archeological site was simply amazing. The tour guide had a lot of knowledge on the area and provided us with very good information.
Loved it ....thank you very much
Enjoyed the day & our guide was great! Our driver, Daniel, was wonderful!
Very friendly informative guide, lots of information & very helpful. I would book with Walks of Italy again. Good value for money.
Really enjoyed the tour and how your people managed it. The small vans were perfect and preferable to the big coaches that most tour companies use. Your people were excellent - friendly, flexible and accommodating.
Hillary was very knowledgeable, friendly and we really enjoyed the entire day!
Would recommend this to friends
Ilaria was an excellent guide........gave us tons of interesting tidbits and an historical perspective.........both she and the woman we met in Rome (Diana?) were lovely!
Fransesca was a fabulous guide--personable and knowledgable.
Hillary, from Pompeii, was an excellent tour guide! I loved positano and Pompeii. Great tour!
Anna was very informative, interacted well with the kids.
Serena was excellent! Very informative and pleasant to be with. The drive to Positano and the Amalfi Coast was beautiful and the shuttle driver was fantastic! Daniele was a magician, getting around those sharp curves!
Ilaria was an excellent guide and we got a lot from the tour. The whole trip was immensely enjoyable.
Great driver and guide
Our guide was the best!!!! We loved her!!
Very good. Paola pompeii guide was great. It was not a problem but I like another family there were under the impression there would be a guide the entire trip. We did not have a guide to/from Rome.
Loved the tour. Just wish we could have had another hour in Positano.
Very happy with tour, Pompeii was a little disappointing because I thought the body's of the people were still there,apparently they moved them to a museum. Still glad I went, one more thing off my backet list. Tour guide was excellent.
Francesca did a very nice job at Pompeii. I would recommend this tour to others.
Hillary was our tour guide for Pompeii and she was just as wonderful as Cecilia! We feel the same about the tour and Hilary. Please tell her thank you as well!!
Very good! The pompeii guide was fantastic. There was an issue in the van with being able to hear the guide on the way there.
Francesca was a wonderful guide. Wifi in the bus was really nice. Very good tour- a little rushed in Positano, but exactly what I expected when trying to see so much in a day.
Franceseca was great! She was so knowledgeable about everything and funny too! Our driver Paolo was also wonderful. I'd highly recommend the tour to anyone.
Worth the expense and the long drive! The visit to Positano was so much fun, and Pompeii was amazing! Our guide was very knowledgeable and engaging.
Great tour overall!
Very friendly and knowledgable.
This tour was excellent but should be split into two separate ones to allow more time in Positano and Pompeii. Positano has many shops worth seeing but the time allotted was too short.
The tour was excellent--our driver was so skilled navigating the hairpin turns on the coast and our guide was most informative. I am only sorry that we did not have more time to spend at Pompeii and Positano!!
Absolutely, undoubtedly, completely, the highlight of my trip to Italy. Great tour guides, phenomenal driver and customer service.
I recommend taking this tour, especially Amalfi Coast Drive with breath taking views. Me and my wife have decided to visit this place and stay here for a week to enjoy the place. The tour guide and driver all of them are exceptionally good.
The whole day was perfect. It seems you think of everything. The guide was so knowledgeable and professional. Couldn't have asked for anything more. Thanks for being so good at this.
Both Serena and the Travel Coordinator were excellent. We especially enjoy Serena's take on the history of Pompeii and all the small details that she knew. A very enjoyable trip to Pompeii and Amalfi Coast.
It was a great (and full) day out! Congratulations and thank you to all concerned.
Really enjoyed the tour. Loved Pompeii and going to positano. Francesca was friendly and helpful and was on time to greet people so we didn't worry we were in the wrong place. Our driver was also really good. We would recommend this tour to others
Great tour from start to finish .. would recommend to anyone who only has one day free to tour outside Rome.
Loved the trip and the guides. Two guides with degrees as archeologists.
From start to finish - our Pompeii and Amalfi coast trip was "A" class. Andre , driver, phone booking lady and Anna - all are best in their field of work. I will recommend Walks to my friends. Thanks again. Raj Bhasin
Ileria was the best WOI guide we had! She was so lively and knowledgeable. Her English was excellent, very easy to understand.
Loved every minute of this tour. Our driver was excellent and our guide was exceptional. This was an amazing tour and an incredible experience. Thank you for a beautiful day!!!
Ilaria was wonderful. Very much enjoyed our day. Will recommend to friends. Thank you for a great day!
Very worthwhile. It was very easy to book at last minute the night before, thanks to your excellent staff.
Excellent, loved it, liberata was excellent, we thought she was awesome. it would of been nice to have an extra 30 min to an hour in positano, after lunch there we only had 15 min to shop
Ilaria was a wonderful, knowledgeable, interesting guide! She really made Pompeii come alive. We had a wonderful afternoon in Positano too!
Tour was great! Our tour guide, Ilaria, was wonderful. So full of information and it was obvious she loved Pompeii.
This tour was amazing, our guide ilaria was very knowledgeable entertaining and funny. I loved the little town of positano. You definitely need to try a food with the local lemon, some local olive oil. I will do a tour with them again next time in italy
This tour was excellent. It was well organized and show us the highlights of Pompeii including history, artifacts, etc. The second half of the tour was at Amalfi Coast which was very relaxing and beautiful. Highly recommend.
We had a wonderful tour with Ilaria as our guide and Paolo as our driver. Both were knowledgeable and delightful people. They went out of their way to make our trip enjoyable.
The tour was fantastic, truly enjoy each and every minute. The only suggestion that I have is that I would have prefer to have more time visiting the AmalfiCoast. The tour guide was excellent, very knowledgeable.
We had a wonderful tour with Ilaria as our guide and Paolo as our driver. Both were knowledgeable and delightful people. They went out of their way to make our trip enjoyable.
This was an excellent tour. The guides, both on the bus and at Pompeii were extremely informative and professional. Our driver was excellent as well, navigating on the Amalfi Coast. We would definitely recommend this tour company and this day trip from Rome.

It was one of the best tours we have ever done. Everything frmo booking to getting home at the end of the day was easy. A big thanks must go to our guide Andrea. He was amazing. He looked after us so well. His knowledge and sense of humour was second to none. He clearly has a great rappour with his coleagues as well as with the guests. Our guide in Pompeii, I am so sorry but I cant remember her name, was amazing. The whole trip was fantastic from start to finish. My husband and I were just very sorry we did not tip Andrea as he thoroughly enjoyed it. Thank you
This tour was more than we hoped for. Our guide (can't recall her name) was a treasure trove of knowledge. She brought Pompeii to life for us. We have wonderful memories of this tour and our time on the magical Amalfi Coast. Kailee, our guide on the bus, went above and beyond to provide us with a wealth of information about many aspects of Rome and its magnificent artistic heritage. Highly recommend this tour!

Amazing trip. The guide Serena is a very friendly, warm person.
This was my third tour with Walks of Italy and again, it was really well done. Anna really knew her stuff. But, I would have liked to have seen more of Pompei's famous places like the "House of Faun" and the "House of Mysteries". A trip to Herculaneum and a stop in Naples to see the museum of Pompei artifacts would have been great, too. One note is that the Restaurant La Cambusa which was the only restaurant open at the time in Positano was way overpriced and the food was below average. It seems like after the recent change in owners this has been the case after reviewing Yelp and talking to a friend of mine who lives in Naples. The view was great, but the food to me was a ripoff. Very dissapointing. Please warn others about that. I would like to compliment Georgia on the job she did keeping everyone interested and informed during the trip. She spent a good deal of time keeping the right mood and answering all of our questions during the approximately 6 hours of road time. They say that American baseball is the hardest sport to be an announcer for because there is so much dead time between action plays you have to fill the space with your personality and interesting stories. Georgia did both! She should be commended for that.

This was my favorite tour because I have always wanted to visit Pompeii. I loved all the Walks of Italy tours I took.
This was my favorite tour of all. Julia and Paolo were amazing. I only regret that we didn't have more time to spend in Pompeii. Paolo was amazing and he had such a wealth of knowledge and made the history of Pompeii come alive. Positano and the drive along the Amalfi Coast left us speechless. This was by far the most wonderful day of our trip to Italy. Thank you so much for the wonderful tour. You are all to be commended for doing such an outstanding job!
Was a great day.
We greatly enjoyed the tour of Pompeii and the Amalfi Coast. Ilaria is an excellent guide and made Pompeii come to life. There was a beautiful sunset as the bus was driving along the cliff on the return trip from Positano and one suggestion is that there could be a 5 minute stop to take photos of the sunset.
Really liked Brunella ( our local guide in Pompeii). Great tour!
This was a wonderful tour. The guide was very amusing, knowledgeable and interesting. Spent time answering every question we asked (and there were many). My family of 7 attended this tour on our second day in Italy and it was a wonderful introduction to both the history and the beautiful scenery of Italy. Thank you. And also great thanks go to both guides who, when I asked where to eat with my milk and wheat allergies, showed us the restaurant and spoke to the restaurant management personally and made my eating experience stress free and delicious. My thanks for the extra care and attention and for the restaurant recommendation. We have nothing but praise for our experience with your company.
Great day! Wonderful tour and guides!

Our guide Hilary was fantastic. So full of knowledge and her passion for the area was clearly evident. Georgia was also very friendly and welcoming.
The tour is beautiful but the drive is a little scary. Our driver was extremely talented and professional!
The bus driver was exceptionally skilled and safe. Our Pompeii guide Serena was so imformative and enthusiastic. She made Pompeii really come alive. This was an excellent tour. I have already recommended it to other travelers. Could I please suggest that more information about how the day would unfold right at the start would have been most helpful. We were placed on a bus in the dark and driven out of Rome with no one telling us what the plan was for the day etc. Until we reached the comfort stop. A 2 minute explanation about how this process would unfold would have set our minds at ease right from the start.
Great tour thanks to Marco,Mauro and of course Ilaria!very professionaland well organized!one only comment from my side:please add a couple more stops or at least add some more time during the stops!also maybe deduct half an hour from pompeii and add it to Positano!
Great experience, too long on the bus......but worth it.

My guide was very informative. I appreciated the sensitivity that he showed when my children were around while in the Red District of Pompeii.
The bus tour guide was great as was the driver. They just made it a wonderful trip. The Pompeii guide's command of English was weak and thus we garnered less information and were not able to see as much as she searched for the correct words with every sentence having "ok" interjected.
It was an excellent tour and would recommend highly to friends and family.
Georgia and Anna were fantastic as well as our driver. They were very informative and helpful and the entire day was an absolute delight. I would not hesitate in recommending this tour and any tours with Walks of Italy with anyone who was interested. FANTASTIC!!!

Ilaria was amazing, and Julia very informative and pleasant. A great day out in two special places, despite truly awful traffic on the way back to Rome and a five-plus hour trip. Marco was a good driver and everyone was appreciative of his very long day at the wheel.
also the highlight of our trip to italy
Anna was a most friendly host and her knowledge of Pompeii was really extensive. She really made my tour memorable and enjoyable. Thank you!
Excellent guide as well as a very skilled driver (Roberto). Will join again!
Excellent tour. Guides Hilary and Giorgia, together with our driver Paolo, made that day one to be remembered. Pompei was much more huge than I expected and the drive Amalfi coast was extremely breathtaking. Definitely got my money's worth.
My tour guide was Andrea, and he was great!
This tour was outstanding! Paulo, our tour guide, was so enthusiastic and knowledgeable that he made you feel as if you were a Roman citizen experiencing Pompeii as a tourist prior to the eruption. The continuation of the tour to Positano added a welcome chance to relax and enjoy the great views and cuisine of the Amalfi coast. It was tiring, but so well worth it.
Pompeii was incredible to see and the Amalfi Coast was beautiful as well. This tour was a perfect way to see both in one day from Rome especially if you have limited time.
I took your Pompeii & Amalfi Coast Day Trip From Rome, November 24, 2016. I had such a great time! The guides were in the designated pick up spot at 7am. They quickly checked everyone in and we boarded our assigned busses and we were on our way by 7:10. From the beginning, my guide Georgia was warm and friendly. Her english was very easy to understand. I enjoyed all the info she gave me through out our day. I learned lots of 'fun facts' about the area we were touring, from the names of the trees, the special products from the area we were visiting, restaurants to try, special foods in season and so much more! I am a nervous passenger in the car, especially on high cliff roads! Antonio was the best driver! I felt so safe with him at the wheel in the busy traffic of the highway and along the narrow high cliff roads of the coast. Francessica, my Pompeii guide, was so wonderful. Her excitement and knowledge of Pompeii really came through during the 2 hour tour. I learned so much! The 2 hours flew by! Upon returning to Rome, I could not stop thinking about all I learned, going over it in my mind to remember it all! I could hardly go to sleep that night. Highly recommend this fun filled day!

Perfect tour and day! Everything was so well planned and the tour guide gave informative talks. Well paced and the weather couldn't have been better either!
Francesca was marvelous, and what a perfect way to at least get a glimpse of the gorgeous Amalfi Coast.
Francesca was fabulous! Very informative, sweet, and professional. We had a wonderful day.
Wonderful day with great guides !

Best tour ever!!
I loved the small group. I hate going on tours and you have to contend with a large group. It doesn't feel personal and you seem to never get to ask any questions. Your tour sizes are perfect! We've been to Pompeii before, but this time we learned much more than last time. So informative, well paced, and all-encompassing. Again, another absolutely terrific tour guide. The Amalfi coast - what can I say? It's only something you see in Conde Nast magazine. It was absolutely stunning and well worth trip.
We loved this tour! We have done walks of NY last year and so enjoyed it we did this one on our recent visit to Italy. Our guides were awesome! I would highly recomend Walks of Italy and Walks of NY to everyone! Thank you!
