We went to Amalfi Coast and Pompeii for the day. Our guides were excellent and provided us with a fabulous day. Had plenty of time to explore the town of Positano and Pompeii. Pompeii was excellent and would definitely go back

Interestingly, it is very difficult to go back and find the tour I signed up for. The Happy Travel(s) makes it too close to not be right and many of my comments match others. The guide held us for 45 minutes outside the tour office...More
