The tour was very well run and we enjoyed it very much. I felt that it was a little rushed but I do understand there it’s only a limited amount of time given for each place we stopped in. Our driver was awesome but our tour guide could have been more personable. We felt like she didn’t want to be bothered eating up to us.

Very good experience, a very complete excursion, thanks to Gabriel and Salvatore. They made us spend a very pleasant day and we were able to enjoy incredible views and a very complete explanation, they were very attentive at all times. A ten falls short!! A greeting from Sonia and Patricia and a song in Japanese

Bellissimo tour , soprattutto il giro in barca ad Amalfi , pranzo con una vista magnifica , il tutto accompagnato un fantastico autista Remigio, e la nostra guida Connie che oltre ad essere molto preparata è anche molto simpatica!

Sandra was a really pleasant guide and made everyone welcome, would highly recommend her as your guided. Rosario's driving skills were exceptional navigating those many twists and turns of the narrow roads

I really enjoyed this trip. The bus had air condition and we managed to see a lot of Italy. Places we wouldn't know about unless we tok this trip.
