    The Amalfi coast was beautiful and well worth the trip. unfortunately, we have issues with a couple on the bus constantly changing seats, which caused uncomfortable atmosphere with fellow passengers having to move around and be separated from their family. The Guide did nothing to correct this, even after I mentioned it to him on the 1st instance.

    Mario was our guide for the day. We were a party of 8 visiting for the day. Mario was waiting for us promptly at the cruise port in Naples and explained the schedule of the day. We were disappointed that the boat ride was not possible, but it was due to weather conditions. I really appreciate that the tour operator kept our safety at the top of his list. We met Carmine at one of our stops, and it was a pleasure to speak with him. Mario was very informative as we drove along the Amalfi Coast. We were allowed ample free time at each of our stops and he was always waiting for us right at the agreed upon time and place. I am a travel agent in the US and will recommend your services to my clients. Great tour and fabulous tour operator.

From start of the tour (an easy local normally everybody should find) up to the end an fantastic tour. We had as booked a small group (18 person) in a small bus. The condition of the bus as well as the driving skills of Giovanni?! (the driver) was a Perry good. The three stops were very good and we enjoyed the flexibility to have time for ourselves or join the others for extras (boats tour). The time at each of these spots were perfect and overall the split between time in the bus and for sightseeing was very good. Big thanks to Vito our guide; great host and a very enjoyable person.

I can not say enough about how great our tour guide "Vito" was. We had him on our From Naples to Pompeii and Vesuvius trip and two days later on this trip. His English is very good, he has a great sense of humor, he obviously loves meeting people and showing them places that he seems very proud of. The tours were very good-but "Vito" made them outstanding!

The tour was very good. The Amalfi coast and the visited towns - Positano, Amalfi, Ravello - were beautiful. In Amalfi you have to choose the boatride (40-45 minutes), is wonderful. (And if you also want to eat something you can easily find a restaurant.) I wish we could have spent some more time in Ravello.

It was epic! The whole experience was amazing. I wish you would offer an Amalfi coast tour that would last the whole day, to experience it at sunset. But this was great nonetheless. Vincenzo and Giovanni were great.

Good organized trip. Nice tourguide. Very good driver.
