What people are saying about Amalfi

Great guide (Jessica), great boat ride. As we traveled to Amalfi, she shared information about what we were seeing (in three languages!). Very scenic - we sat outside in the front of the boat, which made the boat trip wonderful. We had great weather. We took the extra tour to Ravello which gave us both a van ride on the Amalfi road which was very interesting and scenic, plus an hour in Ravello. The guide gave us basic information and then we had free time. Small town, plenty of shops and food, and fantastic views. Highly recommend the trip to Ravello. This meant that we had only one hour in Amalfi (rather than 3), but that was plenty of time in Amalfi. Again, the guide gave us basic information, which was fine, and we got to explore in our own. In Amalfi, we enjoyed the lemon sherbet served in a lemon. Then an hour in Positano. Many people swam. Big beach. We enjoyed exploring. Great boat ride back. Great day!!

Outstanding. The best small group tour we’ve experienced. Tony, our guide, was engaging, informative, enthusiastic…a great host. The 90 minute stops on Amalfi and Positano were the right length…this is not a tour focused on the two towns, it’s all about the scenery and the ride. We’ve been to the Amalfi Coast three times, and you really can’t fully appreciate it until you see it be boat. It is truly awesome. It was a perfect way to spend a day, well worth it. We’d do it again!!

Our guide was very friendly and informative. We chose the tour with pickup from Sorrento. It was so worth it. The shuttle drive alone from Sorrento to Nerano was an adventure and a peek into other towns. The Amalfi coast is stunning. We went for our honeymoon and highly recommend this boat tour. Our stop in Amalfi was lovely.. Positano was nice too!

Simple, fun visit to Amalfi and Positano. Bus ride through the mountains is harrowing but fun (like all driving there). The boat crew was excellent and showed us islands and coastal feature. Comfortable and easy ride, everything on time.

Boat views were spectacular! Very touristy in town.
