What people are saying about Amalfi
It was a great tour and we‘ve seen the famous coastal town at the Amalfi coast comfortably. At first it was very cold at the bus and I was glad that I brought a cardigan and shawl with me. But I think somebody informed the driver to lower down the AC, and the problem was solved. Connie was very informative and a superb guide. The great views along the serpentine roads were amazing. The recommended lunch was also fine and filling. We opted for the boat ride as well and it was all worth it. It was nice to see Amalfi from the boat‘s perspective, wonderful panorama and the breeze was nice. My only regret was that the stay in Positano was too short, 15 minutes, I guess. It deserved more than that, too beautiful for only a couple of minutes. Overall, the bus tour was fantastic and fulfilled all that was promised for the tour! To Connie and the driver, "grazie mille and stay safe!“ Rosemary
Driver was waiting at the pick up point and made himself clearly visible, extremely polite also. Transport was a spotlessly clean and luxurious Mercedes Benz people carrier, expertly driven. Driver loaded and unloaded all luggage at pickup and drop off. I would not hesitate to use this service again and would thoroughly recommend anyone to do the same.
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!!
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.
Wonderful trip, highly recommended! Everything was on time and smoothly organised. Pompeii is definitely a must see and in Positan we had an opportunity enjoy some stunning views! Safe drive through all serpantines!
