Another excursion that we had been chasing for 2 days lost by a whisker, in the late evening of December 5th we managed in extremis and with many difficulties to fall back on another choice ... never more beautiful surprise could happen to us: despite the subdued departure and in the rain, Luca our wonderful guide quickly transformed the tone of the day: he told us with great sympathy and competence an infinite number of news proposing exciting stops along the way that made the excursion to the Amalfi Coast a truly great experience, beyond our expectations . We therefore recommend the choice of this platform, also thanking Gabriella who followed us to the last with kindness and care. Giuliana Rosy Claud and Giuly of Padua

I booked late in the evening, immediate confirmation. Departure the next morning at 8.30, our guide Luca was very punctual, nice, very professional and took us to the coast giving us the goodies to know about our tour. Highly recommended if you want to have a nice, pleasant and comfortable day.

Great day’s experience the tour guide/driver very friendly and informative. Exceeded our expectations and we enjoyed the views, stop offs and suggestions for lunch and olive oil tasting.

Superb experience with Salvatore our driver and guide. Very enjoyable and concise excursion to discover several villages of the coast in just one day. I recommend this experience.
