What people are saying about Positano

Our tour down the coast was beautiful and we really enjoyed the multiple spots we could jump off the boat and swim. Our captain took us to several caves and waterfall to swim, as well as a small beach. The only thing that would have made it better is if our captain spoke about points of interest without us having to ask about everything we were seeing.

Allesandro was an interesting and highly knowledgeable guide. Took us to see major sites, but also side streets and hidden gems we wouldnt normally have seen and which helped us get a break from the crowds. He also knows all of the best angles to take pictures from and took a lot of great family pics for us.

We loved this trip! Our Captain Claudio was delightful -- We had cold water, soft drinks, beers and Proseccos. We saw some spectacular spots. The place he dropped us for lunch was one of the best meals of the trip. The boat provided both sun and shade. I'd do this again in a heartbeat. Worth every penny.

The highlight of our amalfi trip. Salvatore was great. We went to the most beautiful spots to swim, fantastic restaurant only accessible by boat, a really chilled out and relaxing day with our 3 children on board too.

We really enjoy the boat trip in the Amalfi Coast!! We swam, enjoyed the beautiful views and we had an excellent crew. We recommend this boat trip.
