Brilliant day tour of the amalfi coast. Our driver/guide - Fabio was absolutely brilliant and made the whole journey exciting and memorable. He accommodated all our requests and took us us to some brilliant, jaw dropping view points. Fabio planned the whole journey pretty well and the best thing was the restaurant he chose for our lunch at Scala. Beautiful hilltop restaurant with an amazing view. We enjoyed our tour and many thx to Fabio as he made our tour comfortable and special!!

It was one of the best tour! Maurizzio is an excellent guide & driver. He knows a lot of history and shared with us so many informations. Good english speaker and his recommendations for lunch were amazing. Also the car was a brand new one. The owner of the company, Vittorio was very responsive and I want to congratulate him and Maurizzio for the excellent customer experience we had.

Our captain(Adrian I believe) was wonderful and an excellent driver considering the boat traffic he had to maneuver through! He made reservations for us on Capri for lunch and made sure we got to where we needed to be! Great communicator and a lovely ride…would recommend!

The guide was very informative. The overall trip was very good. Boat was as good as new.

It was a wonderful day with a wonderful skipper Flavio
