Well organized. Beautiful boat. Very varied tour, and nice destinations in between. The time in Sorrento could be a bit longer than 1½h for us. For Amalfi, this was enough. But we knew this was going to be an introductory tour, so we're definitely going back to Positano to spend a whole day there. Very relaxed way to do this and worth the price difference than doing this on a mass boat trip, you see so much more. Friendly staff and skipper, highly recommended. Only a little more historical explanation along the way could have taken this to an even higher level. But a highlight in our trip.

We enjoyed our day. The hosts where fun and attentive. We would have liked to have longer time in Positano as we didn’t really have a chance to visit. We spent about an 1 hr in Amalfi and a bit more in Positano. We had the chance to have a daily quick dip in the ocean. We recommend this day for someone who wants to have a fun day in the ocean. If you want to really visit Positano then it’s not the trip for you.

A brilliant trip I would recommend to anyone! The tour was very well organised and communication was great beforehand to plan our hotel pick up. We had plenty of time at each stop and were taken to lovely swimming locations. The lunch was very nice and we were provided with floats and snorkels for swimming. Thank you to Mario and Luigi!

100% recommend seeing the Amalfi Coast this way. I felt like we only needed 1.5-2 hours in both Amalfi and Positano. Silvio was a great guide - knowledgeable and fun to chat with. This was the best day of our trip by far. 10/10.

Such a nice boat and fun staff! Fun to discover the coast and at the same time have a wonderful boat trip. Smooth collection.
