“friendly driver and a memorable experience”
Reviewed 27 July 2014

overall we had a great experience with private day tours.

PEOPLE - guanluca (the owner) was very responsive when we were trying to coordinate the tour over email. i appreciated this because it was a last minute booking. guanluca (the driver) was awesome. he was on time, he was accommodating, he was knowledgeable, and he was fun to talk to during our ride. we would highly recommend him!

TOUR - from positano, we booked a private day tour with a stop at pompeii and then a winery at the base of mount vesuvius. we enjoyed pompeii because it was really interesting but it got very hot and crowded. we recommend going early! we didn't book a tour guide through the ruins of pompeii but if this is something you're interested in, we recommend hiring a guide. if you don't have one, you will miss a lot of the significant things. we just followed some groups and got a good idea of the what things were. :) the winery was nice. but if you're used to educational winery tours, make sure you specify this and let private day tours know. i assumed it would be like some of my napa or tuscany wine tours, and the experience we had was much more simple. we arrived at the winery, they gave us a 5 min tour of the vineyard, we sat down to eat and they poured us tastings of their wines that paired with the food. i guess i was just expecting them to talk more about the characteristics of the wine, how they produce it, how to taste it, etc. but this was not the tour companies fault. i shouldn't have assumed that this was going to be the same kind of tour. the wine and food were good overall. at the end of the day, guanluca took us to get lemon ice from this guy near a lookout where we overlooked sorrento. it was beautiful. had a great day and i definitely think it's worth doing a guided tour of the amalfi coast.

“Amalfi Coast Tour”
Reviewed 27 July 2014

My husband and I just arrived home from a Mediterranean Cruise...one of our ports was Naples, Italy. Our guide met us promptly at our ship and took us on a seven hour tour of Revello, Amalfi and Positano. All places we visited were amazing beautiful. We were taken for a fantastic authentic Italian lunch up upon the mountain. Our guide was knowledgeable and spoke clear English. Highly recommend the tour and the guide!!!

“excellent tour”
Reviewed 27 July 2014 via mobile

we were only in sorrento for 4 days and were unable to get on any of the hotels excursions. we really wanted to go to Pompei and Cantina del vesuvio so we contacted private day tours and they arranged to take us the next day. The cars are excellent condition and staff very polite. he was prompt and helpful.
I really advise people to go to cantina del vesuvio a Vineyard on the vulcano €20 per person for food and wine tasting FABULOUS

“PRIVATE DAY TOURSN ALMALFI COAST”
Reviewed 24 July 2014

4 or us arranged (all by email) a rather extensive tour, including pick up at Naples, travel for a meeting to Paestum then 3 days of tours along the Almalfi Coast, Capri and Naples. Everything worked like clockwork. Highly recommend. 5 stars. All drivers / tour guides including boat were proficient in English, friendly and professional.

“Exceeded ALL Expectations”
Reviewed 24 July 2014

My husband and I booked Private Day Tours for 2 separte trips...one from Naples to Positano and then the return trip as well. I did a LOT of research (I always do), and emailed a total of 6 companies for pricing and trip information. Private Day Tours was the perfect combination of fair prices, great reviews, and quality service (luxury vehicles). We had two separate drivers and both were friendly (but not too chatty / annoying), safe and on time. Gianluca was also amazing at responding to emails in a friendly and timely manner. Book with them -- you won't regret it!
