We booked a short 5 day tour through Sun Island Tours. Rome return (Visiting the Amalfi Coast with a stop in Pompeii. The guide was great, She even helped us with the next leg of our trip (different operator). I forgot the bus driver name but he was very good and helpful. Guide Paula leaded the group through Naples and Pompeii, she was great. The drivers to and from Amalfi were very good. Amalfi Coast & Capri were incredible as imagined.
