Default Private Tour Guide in Naples

We are cruising the Mediterranean this summer and I'm looking for recommendations of private tour guides that are available out of Naples that can provide a tour to Pompeii and the Amalfi Coast. Please list or send me your recommendations.

Thanks!

We booked a great guide/driver for a private tour through Port Promotions.. www.portpromotions.com.
They're also available through www.autoeurope.com.

Amy,

Princess constantly gets raves for running the best shore excursion program in the business, so why not take the excursion to Pompeii that's offered from the ship? You probably won't save much by making arrangements on your own. You may spend more than what you save on the price of the tour on taxis between the tour operator's facility and the pier!

Norm.

We didn't want to take the ships tour either and found plenty of opportunities to bargain with drivers right on the pier. However, we only went as far as Pompei and wish we would have gone further. He gave us a lot of history along the way and would have taken us anywhere we wanted to go! Can't compare it to the tour costs since we were on RCI but the savings for 4 of us including entrance fees to Pompei was about $60. We did save a lot by doing tours on our own in every port except Florence and Rome (were we used the ships transfers). When we compared notes over dinner - others didn't see any more for their money.

Be sure and pick up tour books on the area that you are visiting and be prepared ahead of time so you don't waste a minute! Enjoy
