What people are saying about Nerano

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.

This trip was straight out of a dream! A private boat to tour the Amalfi Coast. Francesco was an amazing host and very knowledgeable about the history of Amalfi. He was a great host and captain as we always felt safe and cared for! The boat was fantastic and easily handled our group of 7, including 3 children ages 4-11. I would recommend this trip to anyone considering it!

Nice experience, the activities and the suggested information are really useful and interesting. With this tour you can do a lot in a short time. Very nice is the visit to Anacapri and the ascent with chairlift to Monte Soloano, from which you can enjoy an unforgettable view.

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.

fabulous tour from start to finish, thank you Maria
