The Path of the Gods, set in a stunning natural beauty, this hike allows you to marvel at the wonders of the Amalfi Coast from a new perspective.

One of the highlights of our week in Sorrento. Our Guide was so friendly and the hike was amazing. Not as hard as I thought and plenty of rest stops so that everyone could keep up. It’s an hour bus ride from Sorrento and another hour back and the whole hike is 3 hours and that includes a most wonderful and refreshing lunch at the Shepards Inn. Highly recommend this and the guide is worth every penny so you can hear great history and stories. Try to do the morning hike as it’s super hot with no breeze in the afternoon. 5 stars all around!!

This was a really great tour and the fact that it includes transportation from Sorrento is a huge plus (I’m not sure we would’ve been able to do the hike without the transportation being included). The guides did a great job of scaling the experience based on the skills and abilities in our group. That said, it should be noted that this is a legitimate hike - so appropriate shoes, attire and expectations are a must! Overall incredible experience!

Our guide was great and the food experience with the shepherd was magical. It is not stated in the description, but this tour was a loop that only took us through about 2 miles of the POTG trail. We opted to not do the return with the group and continued to hike more of the trail. We then caught a bus to Positano to spend the afternoon and took the ferry back to Sorrento.

This was a great experience. Our guide was super helpful & we could not have done this hike without him. The area is beautiful as well.

The whole experience was amazing. The tour guide is amazing,helpful, friendly and informative
