The experience was fantastic! Semih and Emanuel were amazing. As a tour guide, Semih explained everything with precision and a very good sense of humor. He took such extraordinary care of all the group and was very attentive with all of us. Emanuel, our driver was incredible, especially on those scary Positano roads. Our guide in Pompeii, Francesco, was great as well. This was an experience I would recommend 100%

Semih was a wonderful guide, and our bus driver was amazing! The tour of the Amalfi coast was beautiful. The audio on the bus was sometimes difficult to hear. A bit more time in Pompeii would have been nice. Also, it would be great to have a washroom on the bus.

Despite being a long trip, the experience was wonderful! Marta is a SENSATIONAL guide and together with the driver Andreas, they make an unbeatable duo!

Very good tour. Only that the very hot climate of Europe makes it difficult to do it. Although Positano is very beautiful, it was too full of people

The experience was wonderful. I think it’s great for seeing places with limited time but not enough to fully indulge in a place.
