Rome Pompeii Positano Amalfi
I was searching for the convenient public transportation to go to Pompeii / Amalfi coast tour but I could not find any direct bus or train to get to Pompeii
Fortunately in the Rick Steeves guide book I found the name of Gaetano Manfredi who helped us organize the transportation for our group - door to door with admission fees /tickets /skip the queue to the archeological site of Pompeii and a private tour
Gaetano was not available for the tour but he recommended his son Ciro. Initially I was unsure if that would be a good choice because I was not able to find any reviews about Ciro, then I realized that it’s been 3 years that Ciro is working as tour guide. Because we’re a family of 6 with seniors and kids and the accommodation looked good, I decided to accept and it’s been a good decision
The driver whom Gaetano sent was very professional , with excellent command of English language and with clean van with air conditioning.
Along the route the driver provided us with great narrative of what we were seeing and we felt welcome and comfortable.
Once in Pompeii we met Ciro who got our tickets. There was a long queue of people waiting for purchasing tickets but we didn’t have to waste any time and we soon started our tour
By the way Ciro is a fourth generation tour guide of Pompeii !
Ciro exceeded all our expectations, he carries forth all the great traditions of the tour guides of the Manfredi family
He is young but very knowledgeable, courteous, easy going and accommodating and he brings the same passion to the ruins that his father , grandfather and great grandfather did.
We’ve had great experience and have made many beautiful memories for the years to remember
The cost of the entire service was not cheap but they provided high quality of the services and we all agreed that it was worth every penny so I highly recommend it
You can find Gaetano and Ciro on their website
