Amalfi Coast Private Driver for the Day Jun 07, 2012
We joined a shared tour for the day with fellow cruisers and we are so glad we did! We had a wonderful day visiting the Amalfi Coast! Our driver, Alessandro, was professional, courteous and simply fantastic. He was very knowledgeable about the area and was a wonderful driver. His English was perfect and you could tell he really loved his country and took pride in his job.

We had a private tour guide, Pina, at Pompeii. She was phenomenal and really made the ruins "come to life" before our eyes. We got to see many of the highlights without having to be herded with a huge tour group. The drive along the coast was spectacular and Alessandro stopped frequently for photos. We also had about an hour to walk around in Positano (more time than needed as it's just mostly a touristy town with junky shops) and about 1.5 hours in Sorrento (I needed much, much more time there; it is a lovely town). After Sorrento, Alessandro personally walked us to the ferry and purchased our tickets for the return trip to Naples.

The folks on our shared tour didn't want to have lunch so unfortunately we missed out on that aspect of the tour. Looking back, I think this tour promises a bit more than it can deliver given the time restraints. I simply don't see how there would be time for a proper lunch on a short day tour.

I know it is hard to please everyone on a shared tour, but it is also disappointing to not get to see everything that was promised. We barely had time to visit Pompeii, Sorrento and Positano in the time allotted even without stopping for lunch. That's the only reason I'm ranking this a 4 our of 5 stars; better time management would have allowed us to see a lot more with a short amount of time. It was also a bit of a bummer not to get to see the "real" Napoli as we stuck to boring highways instead of charming side streets.

Overall it was a great trip. I really liked having a private driver and air conditioned van (in immaculate condition) waiting for me at each stop. It was fun to feel like a true V.I.P. for the day. I would not hesitate to recommend APTours and I would definitely book them again in the future.
