    Best guide and day trip EVER!
    Our tour guide, Antonino, was fabulous. He was so informative about everywhere we went. It was like traveling with a historian. Antonino spoke English very well. His love of Italy was evident. He gave us great restaurant recommendations and was overall the happiest and easiest guy to be around. We had a tight schedule and he kept to it. Would do it again!!!

    Thumbs up for this tour and tour company
    Our driver, Pepino, was prompt and a good driver and communicator. We all had a wonderful time! Pompeii was the most wonderful of the ruins we visited on our cruise, including Delos, Acropolis and Olympia. Our guide at Pompeii, Anna, was the best! Get there when it opens to miss the crowds. We didn't go to Positano due to time restrictions and traffic, but we all loved Sorrento, and were glad we could spend time for lunch and a little shopping. We'd highly recommend this tour by A Drive Into the Blue. Our only regret is spending just one day in the beautiful Naples area.

    This tour operator cancelled on us the Monday before we were supposed to take the tour(on a Wednesday). The only explanation was we were too few...for a private small group tour. There were only 2 of us, but if that were too few to begin with then don't allow the booking. Or cancel within a reasonable amount of time. We were unable to find another tour following this because even when I booked this 6 months prior, tours were filling up fast. Extremely unprofessional. If 2 is too small for a private tour, don't accept the booking. If you need to cancel, do so within a reasonable amount of time. Not 2 days prior

    Mt Vesuvius, Herculaneum, and Pompeii trip
    Our guide Antonino (Tony) was fabulous. He picked us up at hotel lobby in Sorrento. Drove us to Mt. Vesuvius and was informing us on history of eruption as we drove. Extremely knowledgeable and an excellent guide. We had a very informative ,organized day. Just what we wanted. Ask for Antonino.
  • salonen13
    We were picked up promptly at our accommdation by Antonino and from there the day started. He explained all about Mt Vesuvius on our way. He was very very knowledgeable about everything we spoke about. He showed us the best parts of Pompeii explaining everything about what we were seeing. When we moved on to Herculaneum he was just as knowledgeable. We all had looked forward to this trip and Antonino made sure we had a great day. We will visit the museum of archeology to see the things we spoke with Antonino on the trip. Throughout the day he always told us we could change plans but we were very very happy with the schedule. Amazing scenes from Mt Vesuvius of the bay of Naples.

    Pompeii private tour with Antonino
    Finally toured Pompeii and it was worth it… Antonino our guide was wonderful… he was so knowledgeable and made the tour engaging, interesting and left us wanting to know more about this amazing place. It was deeply moving to see how people lived in ancient times….highly recommend this tour and Antonino as your guide.

    Avoid this unreliable driver who no-showed despite a confirmed reservation
    Antonio cancelled our 6/21 Amalfi Coast excursion without notice, I only discovered it when I called him the evening before to provide him with our hotel location for pick up. He said he had emailed me several days earlier to cancel because he was sick. However that was untrue, he actually emailed me several days before on 6/16 CONFIRMING my reservation. I’ve attached a copy of his email because he insists he never confirmed, but here it is. The email also mentions we amended the reservation, but we never did anything other than make a simple straight-forward booking. I’m not sure where is confusion is coming from - whether he mixed up his bookings, got a better offer or perhaps it was a language barrier situation - but the whole situation was unprofessional. I made the reservation months in advance, as I knew we were traveling during high season. His cancellation left us in a lurch, and negatively impacted our travel plans as we only had a few days and had to scramble to reschedule things. Very disappointing. Avoid this unreliable vendor.

    Wonderful Excursion to Vesuvius and Herculaneum/Pompeii Ruins
    This tour was the highlight of our Italy trip! Antonino was a wonderful guide for our excursion to Mt. Vesuvius, Herculaneum, and Pompeii. He was prompt in picking us up, and flexible with the schedule. We loved his passion for Herculaneum and Pompeii. It was so interesting and breathtaking to experience the sites through his narrative. Antonini also gave us sound advice traveling down to the Amalfi coast from Naples. His info was invaluable, and we had a great experience.

    Really memorable tour.
    An excellent tour well worthwhile. There is a lot to see in the area and Antonio showed us so much. He is an excellent driver and guide. Delighted we chose a tour with him particularly as we have young children and Antonio allowed us to set the pace so the kids never got too tired.

    Pompeii trip
    It was a cold and rainy day but we got lots of quality time at each location. He was a very good driver in the bad weather.

    Fantastic experience
    We would highly recommend this tour. What a wonderful day! Antonio was absolutely fantastic as a tour guide. We learned so much and would do it again in a heartbeat. Our 2 children (age 11 and 8) were entertained and had a magical day. Thank you, Antonio!

    Amazing day in Pompeii, Sorrento, & Positano!
    From start to finish this tour was excellent! Our tour guide, Antonino, provided the best experience. My tour was very small (just myself & my friend). We started out in Pompeii. He was able to give detailed historical descriptions & provided extra pictures to help us imagine what the ruins looked like before they were destroyed. I learned a ton! I was blow away by the ruins. We then headed to the Amalfi coast where we enjoyed a walk down to the beach taking in all the interesting scenery. We stopped along the way & did some shopping. Since we visited in December, it was not crowded & many of the shops were closed. We didn’t mind this & actually preferred the more “private” views. Finally we ended in Sorento. We went to a main square area with 2 bustling streets for shopping. The area was beautifully decorated for Christmas. We took this tour towards the end of our vacation & it was easily my favorite day of the whole trip. Highly, highly recommend. Antonino was fabulous. I feel very lucky that we got him as a guide!

    Amazing tour, fantastic guide, Highly recommend
    We have been in Italy for 6 days and have done a tour everyday. This tour guide and tour was our favorite of the entire trip. Tony was incredibly knowledgeable about Pompeii. You got the sense that this wasn't just a job for him, it is his passion. He was a great English speaker and everything was easy to understand. If I am ever back in the area I will be booking another tour with him.

We had a fabulous day. Antonino was a knowledgeable and patient guide who even made being stuck in Naples rush hour interesting(!). This is a must for anyone who wants to learn more about herculaneum and surrounding area. The day was finished off with a beautiful lunch and wine tasting overlooking the bay. I can't recommend this package highly enough.
