Had Fab day and so worth it , Valerio was very kind and informative . Illari in Pompeii was a lively guide also :)

Wonderful knowledgeable guide! This Tour was a real treat!

Honestly this was probably our favourite tour throughout our whole trip, and not just because Positano, the Amalfi Coast and Pompeii are spectacular sites to see. Adrienne our “escort” for our trip was incredibly sweet and engaging. She made us feel very welcomed and comfortable and made what could feel like a very long drive, seem less and more enjoyable. She was very good at reading the group. Knew when we decided for quiet and when speaking about interesting facts was right up our alley. She was also really great in pointing us around Positano and making sure we got in rest stops and bathroom breaks, something this pregnant woman really appreciated. I think though that the absolute highlight was Paolo, our tour guide around Pompeii. Adrienne joked about him being a favorite because of his good looks and charming personality and she wasn’t wrong, but his charisma had more to do with the effortless way he immersed us into Pompeii. He joked and laughed, was serious where appropriate and had so many amazing facts about the site that he overwhelmed us in the best way possible with his knowledge. We appreciated that he geared the tour towards us adults (as there were no children or teens in our group) without making the more salacious aspects of the culture obscene. And that he engaged us with questions and got us thinking about how things would have worked back then instead of just giving us the answers. It was a real treat through and through. If you have a chance to do this tour, don’t hesitate, whether you get Adrienne or Paolo or not, walksofItaly really knows what it’s doing and provides the most amazing tours we’ve had on our trip thus far. We were very lucky to book more than one with them and should we ever return they’ll be the first we go to for more!

Great trip. We had traffic getting to the Amalfi coast but Matthew, the bus guide, adjusted for this and just expanded the trip duration by an hour so we had a wonderful day on the coast and a great tour of Pompei.

Great experience! A full day of multiple activities. Definitely worth it.
