If I had to choose my desired destination on earth, it would have to be the Amalfi Coast. Falling short of words to depict it except heaven on earth. Combine the delicious classical Italian food with stunning and pristine beaches with splendid architecture with awe-inspiring nature with European charm, and you get the perfect formula for an escape. Touring the Amalfi coast with Giuseppina makes you feel as if you live there. She showed us the natural beauty and rich history of these lands with every ounce of enthusiasm possible. It was a remarkable trip!

Michele Lamberti with Askos Tours was a great guide. He was very knowledgeable and great storyteller. We went on a Sunday and the other couple in our group didn’t show so Michele gave us a private tour which brought Herculaneum to life.

Dario, our guide, was fabulous - fun, friendly and knowledgeable. We were taken on a journey into another world…..an absorbing insight into the history of an incredible city. I highly recommend this tour.

Nice trip around the coast and stops at the pretty towns along the way.

we had an effective one day trip, reaching amazing places
