We were part of a group of 8 on a 7 night cruise, and this was probably my favorite port day! Giovanni was our driver and he helped make this day fun and memorable. He got us to Pompeii early so we beat the crowds and could really enjoy our visit. He is a highly skilled driver (not easy on the Amalfi coast Road) and took us to some beautiful lookout places for stunning views/photos of the Amalfi coast and Positano! He arranged a really nice lunch for us in Sorrento, recommended the perfect street for us to pick up last-minute gifts, and he made sure were were on time for the ferry back to our ship. I would definitely recommend AP Tours and Giovanni, and hope I get the chance to use this service again someday!

September 30/2013. This was our first time doing an independent outside of our cruise line. What a BLAST! Eight of us went off to Pompeii and Herculaneum with Pina ( our guide) and Giovanni (our driver).6 hour tour. This was the highlight of our 19 day Western Mediterranean Cruise. ( Age group) in our 60's. We like ruins and history and Pina gave us a great descriptive picture of how life was like at the time of Mt Vesuvius' eruption. We all agreed that we enjoyed Herculaneum more because it was more emotional and intimate. We all immediately hit it off with Giovanni, and had lots of laughs. We would highly recommend this company, guide and definitely the driver! We would not hesitate about using their services again. Thanks Pina and Giovanni for making our tour so memorable. The Crazy Canadians! We won't forget you.

On Oct 1 we did the Elite Shared Excursion to Pompeii, Sorrento and Positano with AP Tours. Lena was our guide and Stephanie was the driver. What a fantastic day this was! When Lena was telling us about the lives of the people in Pompeii, I thought they were right there going about their daily chores. The Amalfi Coast did not disappoint! My mouth was wide open all the way. What lovely towns Positano and Sorrento were. I highly recommend this tour with AP Tours.

In August 2013 we did Tour 2 Pompeii, Positano and Sorrento with AP Tours. Our driver Giovanni was very nice and he suggested a wonderful restaurant outside Positano for us to have lunch and that was the best meal we had on our 2 week trip. We had originally booked to take the ferry back to Naples from Sorrento but a few weeks before we were contacted by APTours to enquire if we would change to taking the mini van back due to the Ferragasto holiday that was happening that weekend. We were glad they told us as we would not have wanted to miss our cruise ship. We had several stops for photos and it was a wonderful day!

We were a group of 8 that met on Cruise Critic for a 12 day cruise. All communication with the company was handled professionally and promptly. We were met promptly at the port by Paolo in a Mercedes van. Paolo kept us entertained and provided a historical commentary as we traveled to our first stop, Pompeii. Luckily, we arrived just as the ticket booth opened. Our guide, for an additional fee, was there and expertly guided us on a two hour uncrowded tour. Pompeii is incredible and deserves a guide to fully enjoy it. From there, Paolo took us to Positano stopping along the way for picture taking and onward to Sorrento. During the whole drive, he pointed out points of interest and stopped to make sure we had time to enjoy the scenery. At Sorrento, we enjoyed a lunch, shopping and were then driven to the ferry. Paolo had already purchased our ferry tickets but he stayed with us until the ferry arrived and made sure we were safely on board before he departed. The ferry was an enjoyable way to return to the ship since were could view the coastline from the water this time. I highly recommend AP Tours and Paolo if you are touring this area.
