What people are saying about Amalfi
The trip is worth you get the most of what you can in 1 day, the restaurant’s location is nice and the food was okay. When it comes comes to swimming, Positano has the most beautiful beach but your time is limited there, you’ll have time to enjoy the beach and swimming in Amalfi if you skip the boat tour.(add 25€ to your budget for a beach umbrella and access to changing room and shower) Throughout the trip Italo and Aniello took very good care of us providing information during the ride and guidance for the free time. Very much recommended overall
We had a lovely time with Mariangela (the tour guide) and Rosario (the driver). I would recommend the trip to however wants to see and enjoy the main attractions of the Amalfi coast in a nutshell especially if you are clueless about where/how to go. The driver was very experienced on the narrow roads along the coast and our tour guide kept us very engaged with all the narrations and legends around that area. The trip was very informative and enjoyable.
It was a full experience, our guide Federicka was fabulous and our driver Pasquale safe and patient. The tour gives you a hood sense of which towns you might want to return to for a longer visit, and the boat ride was a great way to see Amalfi from the water. Having some guided knowledge, tips and recommendations definitely helped in deciding what to do with our free time in each town. And they saved the best for last, Ravello!
The experience has been amazing - from the pick up to the boat trip arrangement. It may feel a bit rush but every minute was well spent, and much appreciated for the tips and info from our guide.
Giuseppe was a wonderful driver. Safely driving us to Positano, which can be a bit intimidating for a tourist.
