My wife, son and I hired DGS Tours to take us to Pompeii/Positano in April. Our driver, Pietro, met us promptly at 7:30 in the hotel lobby. From the start it was obvious Pietro was very engaging and personable. We hopped into his Mercedes minivan and as we headed southeast out of Rome he provided us lots of interesting information about Italy, including current events. First stop was Pompeii. There a seasoned archeologist, Antonio, led us on a private tour of the ancient city. Antonio knew his history and we learned quite a bit about Pompeii we would otherwise have missed. After Pompeii, Pietro took us up the Amalfi Coast to a restaurant overlooking Positano and the Mediterranean. There, Pietro introduced us to his friend Pepe, one of the family members who owned the restaurant. Pepe gave us no menus. He sat us at a window table with a fantastic view and promptly brought out wine, water, and an array of fantastic foods from the kitchen. It was all excellent. Desserts and limoncello capped the feast. The price was very reasonable and needless to say we left there very content. We stopped briefly in Positano and visited some of the shops. It is a very quaint, beautiful town and not to be missed. From Positano, Pietro drove us back to our hotel in Rome. It was a very enjoyable and educational journey and one of the highlights of our trip to Italy. I highly recommend DGS Tours.
