I paid extra for the small group tour under 16 people complete waste of money!
we got off our cruise ship to find the tour, we then walked to the hydrofoil terminal all 40 of us 2 groups with 2 tour guides
our group consisted of 22, because children do not count!
after the morning on capri we then got on a large bus to take us to Pompelii , All 40 of us!
Amazing tour! We travelled from Rome to Naples via train and were picked up right out the front by private van and lovely driver. There were only 4 of us on the tour in Capri which was perfect. The time in Capri felt short but it just made me want to come back again and see the whole island. Such a beautiful place! We met a larger group in Pompeii. Pompeii was breathtaking and the guide knew his stuff. Next time I would spend a whole day in Capri and a whole day in Pompeii. Would recommend to anyone who hasn't been to Capri or Pompeii before.
It is definitely worth booking a trip rather than trying to do things on one's own. Guide very helpful and efficient. Pick up and drop off worked well.
Only thing - the Pompeii part was too short - 1 1/2 hours instead of the advertised 2 hours which would have been very short in itself. Even though I have visited Pompeii before, I felt this barely gave a taste of the site. We missed both House of the Faun and the Tragic Poet, which were on the itinerary. It would have been nice to have time to browse the bookshop too.
If you are interested in seeing Pompeii it would be better not to combine this with another trip.
Our tour guide Rosa was fantastic and very knowledgeable she arranged for us to go on a boat tour around the Island of Capri which was so worth it so beautiful absolutely breath taking. Pompeii was very interesting and educational would like to go again and do the other of different sections. A must do!!!!
Hotel pick up ok, small amount of confusion over other pickup times. Trip to Capri was first and was great, only 4 of us on this so we got luck. Starts to get busy around lunchtime on the island. Then trip back to Pompeii all ok, picked up a few more for the guided tour - tour guide was very good and knowledgeable. He spoke good English, only down side was he then had to repeat for the Italian couple, but it did allow time to look around. Spectacular place and the 2 odd hours you get is not enough to really explore in detail but we saw a fair amount in that time. All in all a good trip with few if any problems.
Our tour guide was friendly but could have been more explicit about what our exact plans were. Capri was beautiful! Our Pompeii guide was extremely knowledgeable and our tour there was thorough and interesting! Being met at the ship and dropped off at the ship in a timely fashion were appreciated!
