We chose this tour company for our three days in Italy. We used them consecutively in Naples, Rome, and Florence. The company guides were each very good in knowing their way in and out of all the sites. Valerio in Florence was on his home turf and was VERY knowledgeable and a highly certified tour guide. Florence/Pisa was certainly the highlight of the three stops, but each was good in their own right.
There were six of us and we were able to book a very nice Mercedes van for our group. The fees charged were markedly less than that of our cruise ship. Given the size of the group we easily saved over 1000 euro for the three days with this company. Further, being able to book a personalized tour for a group as small as six of us made it a far better quality product than any of the other options.
Recommendations -- listen when the guides tell you where to eat lunch and where to get gelato. They know the best places and the price/quality of all were excpetional.
As for tours -- I think I would skip Pompeii and go to another ruin. Our guide at the Pompeii ruins kept mentioning another site (perhaps Herculaneum?) that was far better preserved because it had been encased in mud rather than the ash of Pompeii (which was looking a little worn by tourists). Other than that our Pompeii guide at the ruins site (he was NOT affliated with the company I'm reviewing) kept running ahead every five minutes and smoking before returning to talk right in our faces. YUCK! No tip for you...
