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.
Hop aboard a comfortable, air-conditioned minibus and start your journey down to the UNESCO World Heritage Site, Pompeii. Upon arrival at Pompeii, breeze past the long lines with your Skip-the-Line ticket and enter into this time capsule of the ancient Roman world, where your local expert guide will give you a guided tour of these marvelously preserved ruins. Go to Positano, where the houses tumble down the hillside, and stroll among the boutique stores. Purchase some of the local limoncello liqueur, visit the Church of Santa Maria Assunta or people watch from a restaurant terrace. After some free time and lunch (own expense) in Pompeii, the tour will continue further south along the picturesque seaside roads of the Amalfi Coast where your breath will be taken away by the spectacular coastlines as the mountains cascade into the sea and romantic villages climb up the mountains like grap...
This was an amazing day trip to Amalfi Coast. From the lemoncello factory along the coast to Positano and Amalfi Town, the entire day was one amazing experience after the next. Our guide Cesare made the trip funny, informative and his passion for what he does stood out as the group was constantly laughing. I would recommend this excursion to any of my family and friends and hope Cesare was the one to take them on the journey. Thanks again.
Travel to Positano by way of private car. Arrive at the summit of this picturesque little town and descend slowly toward the beach by way of small narrow streets and ancient alleyways. Pass by numerous houses in vibrant colors facing the sea and unimaginable terraces suspended over the sheer cliff face. Pass by typical ceramic and fabric shops and fragrant gardens filled with orange and lemon trees. Make your way to the church of Santa Maria dell'Assunta and let your guide introduce you to its incredible dome, covered in colored majolica. Continue along the coast to Amalfi, once a maritime republic in the Middle Ages. Learn about the unique history of a town that went through a period of prosperity in the 10th century thanks to its control of some important ports when the sea trade in the Mediterranean was booming. Visit the Duomo of St. Andrea and the Cloister of Paradise in addition t...
The most famous eruption of Mount Vesuvius took place in the year 79 A.D. when the volcano buried the ancient Roman city of Pompeii under a thick carpet of volcanic ash.

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.
