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!
