OMG! I don't even know where to begin as it was an amazing trip!!! Rossella Ruscio was our guide and she was fun, informative, attentive and knew so much about Venice and the surrounding areas it was like having our own private guide! She even recommended a great place for lunch and that didn't disappoint either! She checked so often to make sure that we were all present and accounted for and she even took the time to care for those of us who couldn't walk as fast as the group. She made this trip worry free and super fun!!!! This was our 4th trip with you folks and we LOVE 'Get Your Guide' all of your guides are super so thank you so much for offering this great service!!!

Our group of six had a great time with Adrian as our driver and Antonio as our Pompeii guide. It was even better than we anticipated. We enjoyed getting out of Rome for the day and seeing more of Italy. Seeing Pompeii helped us to understand the past in Italy as well. After lunch we made a stop at a Limoncello factory which was a nice bonus. All in all it was a great day!

It was an experience where we were able to get to know the Amalfi coast in a short time, and we made the most of it. It was an excellent experience as well as the guides.

Amazing day !! Comfortable train journey, wonderful boat trips along the beautiful coast.

The site was more than expected much larger and better restored than I suspected.
