During our stay in Sorrento we used Transfer Tour Amalfi Coast for pick up at Napoli train station, drop off at our accomodation in Sorrento, a day trip along the Amalfi Coast, a visit to Pompeii, a winery stop and a transfer back to the train station. We were very blessed to have Salvatore as our driver for the whole time. He was delightful company, very knowledgeable of the area and a fantastic driver on those narrow roads! His van was spacious, clean and very comfortable. We highly recommend this company. Thank you Salvatore for making our holiday so enjoyable.

We just returned from a wonderful day to Pompei and Salvatore was our magnificent driver!! He picked us up on time and was so professional and understanding of our every need. He went above and beyond in taking care of us in every way and even helped us find a voltage converter. His driving was terrific and I felt very safe with him. The van was so clean and comfortable. He was easy to talk to and a delight to spend the day with- thank you Salvatore for making our day to Pompei and the winery absolutely perfect!!

My family and I were traveling from Positano during this Easter holiday weekend. Salvatore not only drove us to Pompeii, but he arranged a wonderful wine tasting At Vesuvius Winery. He was a dynamic conversationalist and an expert driver. I now consider him a trusted friend. I hope you book with Salvatore if you are looking for a family fun day in the Almafi coast. If I could, I would give him 6 stars!
