Custom day tour & perfect service
We knew we wanted to do an excursion day to take in the sites history and natural beauty during our first trip to Italy. After speaking to the hotel front desk we soon realized none of the tours offered had the combination we wanted for our wish list: Pompeii & Herculaneum with a hike to Mt Vesuvius all in one day.
We knew for us the only way to accomplish this ambitious itinerary was to have a knowledgeable private driver to help us navigate the way. We were so fortunate to have had Paolo to accompany us as our driver. Because of his personable professional service, our decision to invest in a private custom day tour day was one of the best we made for our trip as this tour was one of our trip highlights.
He arrived early and picked us up at our hotel in Positano. Paolo is so friendly and personable he makes you feel at ease. Throughout the drive enroute to our destinations, he checked with us to make sure we were ok during our ride, asked if we were comfortable and offered us bottled water. His car was clean, modern with wonderful air conditioning which was a great relief from the heat of the day. He is a safe, excellent driver and so knowledgeable about the food scene and local culture. This is important to us as we enjoyed hearing stories of local cheese and the history of Margherita pizza! The conversation en route to our excursion stops included interesting descriptions of local sites and stories.
After he took us to Pompeii, where we explored for the morning, the next stop was the Mt Vesuvius hike. Before that hike, we had thought perhaps for lunch we would hit a cafe or pizza spot we had quickly read about online near to the entrance of Pompeii. He reassured us that he knew a great local spot instead we would love and that he would recommend. We said ‘lead the way’! It turned out to be another great highlight of our trip and we were so happy to have trusted his recommendation. He drove us to a vineyard in the Boscotrecase part of Naples which had a breathtaking view, delicious tasting menu and wine with the tasting courses. Perhaps the 5 glasses of wine before the Mt Vesuvius hike was not the wisest decision I had made, but I managed my way to finish the hike. We were happy to have someone else handle the driving for us that day; to take us through the tight winding roads and drive us the distances and get us to the locations safely.
At each excursion stop he patiently waited for us as we met at the prearranged location and time. He was there waiting for us when we were delayed coming down from Mt. Vesuvius (due to insufficiencies in my footwear.) He then took us to Herculaneum for a visit before it closed before driving us back to our hotel in Positano in the evening. We were happy and pleased with our day of activities and thankful for his help to make the day a success.
We would love to go to Italy again one day and would want no one else except for Paolo for our next private day tour. Great reliable, professional service and fun, friendly conversation. Highly recommend!
Amazing. Friendly. Timely. Perfect English!
Thank you for making our transport to Positano, an unexpected and pleasant tour. Paolo was timely and provided a fantastic service for transport, with stories that made the ride more enjoyable, around every turn. We loved every moment and will request Paolo during our next visit. We also ended up using Paolo's service from Rome, and all around Amalfi, including Revello. Thank you! Anyone looking to request transport early, prior to visit, and not worrying about being picked up, this is your service!
Best there is!
Can’t say enough of how perfect out trip was with Paolo. Whether you are on a full day excursion or a transfer - you will experience professional service as well as spending a day with someone who knows so much about the are and will share information about the region your entire trip. Have worked with Paolo multiple times and he is the best in the area. Don’t hesitate to book anything.
Fantastico! Bravo, Paolo!
We booked this tour through Rome Cabs. Honestly, it was a bit pricey, but the return on our investment was sizable due to the outstanding performance of our tour guide, Paolo.
We met Paolo at the cruise port in Naples. He was waiting for us when we got off the ship. He first told us about some of the buildings that flanked the cruise port. We then proceeded to a beautiful vehicle and proceeded towards Amalfi. During the entire trip to Positano, Paolo pointed out landmarks and provided exceptional historical information on the area.
The scenery on the way to Positano, including the trip through Sorrento, was stunning. At our request, Paolo stopped at a couple viewing vistas, one outside Sorrento and one outside Positano. Auto travel in Positano is especially challenging and Paolo was ready for it. We felt safe at all times and he called ahead to ensure he had parking in a garage in Positano. We had some limoncello and viewed the beach during our hour there.
We then went back to Sorrento for shopping and lunch. The restaurant recommended by Paolo was fantastic and we dined on the finest calzone we have ever had.
This was followed by a trip to Pompeii. It was very hot this particular day and Pompeii is quite large. Fortunately, water was easy to find.
At all stops, Paolo gave explicit instructions as to when and where we would be picked up and each time both he and we arrived at the meeting place simultaneously.
I highly recommended Paolo. he made our day trip a memorable one that we will talk about for years to come.
Great Service by Paolo! Tour of Amalfi, Sorrento & Pompeii
My family and I had a great experiace with The Naples tours!
We didn't know what to expect as it was out first time in Naples and we booked the 8hour tour of Amalfi, Sorrento and Pompeii. We knew it was going to be a long day and wasn't sure if it was worth booking a private tour vs the Cruise ship one on the bus and we were so GLAD we booked private with The Naples tours.
Paolo our driver was at the port with bottled waters and a luxury car that wisked us away to our first stop Amalfi. During the drive he was full of great information and answered all our questions. In Sorrento Paolo was able to recommend a great local restaurant that was not full of tourist and even helped with all our shopping. Having the VIP treatment at all times was peace of mind for us as we didn't have to worry about lining up for the bus and caring bags. Pompeii was great, truly was so big that we could have spent the whole day there. Next time we would probably book a whole day just for Pompeii. Our tour was wonderful and feel this was worth every penny as we wanted to experience all we could see in 8 hours. Paolo was a gem as he was full of information and always willing to give suggestion to beautiful spots to take pictures and local eating spots.
We look forward to our next tour with The Naples tours.
Knowledgeable, pleasant and engaging
Paolino was recommended to us by friends who spoke highly of him. WE did a day trip from Rome of the excellent high speed trains. He picked us up from the Napoli train station, having made some sensible suggestions re times and crowd avoidance, and sped us up to Pompei in a nicely air-conditioned Mercedes. He is a native of the area, and that showed as he regaled us with stories of school trips to Pompei, the other historical sites in the area, and famous movies filmed in the vicinity. He arranged a great guide (Sylvia) for the Pompei ruins, and was there to meet us as we emerged. Then back to Naples for a tour around the city looking at vantage points, historical curiosities, and a very tasty lunch, at a shoreline restaurant. His assertions on Naples being the home of pizza and thus our needing to eat that while in the city, were well founded. Back to touring around (we were literally all around the city) , and finished up with some excellent espresso before he deposited us back at the station for our train to Rome, alongside some local specialty pastries that he'd got us for the journey..!
Very pleasant day all round, and he knows a lot about Italian cinema and movies in general..!
He took us to a winery and we were with him for four hours. Extremely pleasant, easy going and just plain friendly. We enjoyed his company and his personality!!!!
More than just a transfer
Arriving in a foreign country with 4kids can be anxious times. Paolo welcomed us at the airport and took care of us. We opted for a stop in Pompei enroute to our Airbnb in Amalfi. He dropped us off right at the entrance in Pompei and picked us up on time. He chatted with us about the region, history and helpful advice for our vacation. He called our Airbnb owner and arranged for our arrival. What I booked was for an airport transfer but what we received was the perfect welcome to the start of a wonderful vacation in the Amalfi coast. Grazie Paolo!

Excellent service all round
Superb - Paolino is a great guy, great to chat to and really helpful. I can't speak highly enough of my trips with him.
We booked a transfer service to be picked up from our hotel in Positano to go to the Naples train station. Our driver Paolo was right on time and super friendly. He gave us some good recommendations for our next stop in Venice and he even taught us a little about mozzarella. Would highly recommend using this service.
