Fabulous day visiting 2 of Irpinia’s family wineries in the beautiful Avellino area of Campania. Our host/sommelier Guatano was an absolute delight to spend the day with - his knowledge of the area and it’s history, geography, food and wine was mind blowing. We very much enjoyed the conversation with him and had lots of laughs as he was very enthusiastic and entertaining! We enjoyed warm and generous hospitality at both our stops and learned a lot about producing wine in this iconic region (we have a small vineyard in Australia). We would recommend this tour very highly and it is excellent value for money. Grazie!

Really great tour! We rode in a luxury bus to the port, took a beautiful boat ride on the Amalfi coast, took a mini bus ride to Ravello, (a small, adorable town with amazing views), toured the town of Amalfi, took a short boat ride to Positano and then back to our original port. The boat was good sized and had outdoor and covered seating options. There is no food or water provided, though they do have water for sale and you can get lunch at one of the stops. I highly recommend this tour as a great option for seeing the Amalfi coast as you don’t have to fight the traffic and deal with the white knuckle drive.

Our driver Pasquale was absolutely great, fun and informative. The trip allowed us to get through all locations and we as a group all chose the add on for the cruise. Highly reccomended
