1. Capri Island Full-Day Semi-Private Trip from Sorrento

The boats used for this Sorrento cruise are very comfortable, with ample wooden deck space, a sofa, seating, a cabin and a bathroom. You’ll take part in a short briefing, and then head off on a scenic cruise to the island of Capri. Departing from Marina Grande, you'll first pass by Regina’s Giovanna Baths and have views of the Ancient Roman Villa Pollio. As you approach the Isle of Capri and then cruise around it you’ll see the statue of the Scugnizzo, the Grotta del Corallo, the Grotta Bianca, the Natural Arch, Villa Malaparte, the Faraglioni, the Bay of Marina Piccola, the Grotta Verde, the Lighthouse at Punta Carena and the Grotta Azzurra. After cruising around the island, you’ll have 4 hours of free time to visit the center of Capri. Head to Piazza Umberto I, better known as the Piazzetta, a surprisingly small square dominated by the profile of the island's Monte Solaro. The Piazzetta is the heart of Capri's social life, and therefore became known as the Salotto del Mondo, or the world's sitting room. In the late afternoon you’ll cruise slowly back to the mainland, leaving the legendary island behind.

My fiancé and I arrived in Positano and went on the Amalfi Coast private tour from Positano with Enzo and Luigi the following day. We can’t say enough positive things about both of them and about the tour itself. They’re engaging, informative, incredibly nice, and very passionate about their jobs. We loved the panoramic views which were way better on a Vespa. Our guides pointed out so many things which we would’ve missed on our own, and we can’t imagine trying to drive on those roads ourselves . Being able to go on this tour on our second day in town helped give us a better sense of the coastline and get to know the areas better. We highly recommend going into the Emerald Caves which were beautiful (roughly $5 per person, not included but totally worth it). Again, totally worth going on this tour and can’t recommend it enough. Thanks Enzo and Luigi! You guys are amazing and we had a blast!

Wonderful private day trip. Our driver (unfortunately can't remember his name) was very friendly and knowledgeable. Recommend going straight from Positano to Ravello so as to catch the church before it closes at 12:00, then have lunch there before visiting Amalfi on the way back

The Driver was very friendly and arrived at the hotel very promptly. He kept in touch with me up until he arrived for the transport. It was very easy to book and I would definitely use this service again if I go to the Sorrento area.

We were driven by Enzo, Marco and Luigi and had a great time! They were wonderful guides and Enzo was so knowledgeable. The drivers made us feel so comfortable and relaxed. We had so much fun exploring the Amalfi Coast with them!!

总体非常不错!Massimo的德语很流利,人非常贴心,中途去庞贝的时候发现没有导游还替我特地找了一个语言相通的导游,真的特别好。一路给我介绍了很多关于这次旅行的历史,还会在各个景点特地减速方便我拍照。车子里很干净。爬维斯威火山,他在山下等我的时候还特地给我带了新的水。下次来一定还会找他!
