we did drive amalfi but our guide was Roberto...most memorable tour we have been on to date ..lunch as great...shopping excellent and not having to deal with bus loads of cruisers was a plus too due to the topography of the areaWe also did a tour with Roberto last fall. He was great. One thing to keep in mind. You can't see everything. Before you go, discuss what exactly what you want to see, and stick to you your guns. I did the tour with several Cruise Critic people. We didn't talk about it before hand. We just went on the tour and did what Roberto did. We pretty much drove down to Positano and drove through the town. We did get out on a overlook above Positano, though. We stopped in Amalfi and had lunch, which took quite awhile. By the time we got to Pompeii we had less than an hour and a half. We hired a guide there, but she didn't take us to much of Pompeii. I think if I had to do it again. I would of gone to Herkalanium, it's much smaller and closer to Naples than Pompeii. And to keep an eye on the time spent having lunch. And would of gone to Sorrento, rather than Amalfi.
The only negative about the whole day was the amount of time he spent on the cell phone. Although we didn't feel like we lost any 'content', we did at times feel like his mind was somewhere else.
