What people are saying about Villa Cimbrone

It was a wonderful tour with Francesco. Booking a day tour is highly recommended especially if you have limited time in Italy and you want to see the best spots. Very convenient and comfortable with the private car in touring around Positano, Amalfi, and Ravello. You would be touring for an hour for each town, excluding some random stops for picture taking and the lunch along the way. The restaurant for lunch in Praiano has nice sea view with delicious seafoods and Italian food. The driver, Francesco, also shares some facts and trivias about Italy. He also gave recomendations where to go when you start to do your own tour. Definitely a memorable one.

Fantastic Amalfi Coast Tour

Tour was great! Paulo, our guide, was so kind, knowledgeable, and punctual. We had impression that no one could be better than him. The tour course was well scheduled and managed from Ravello to Naples stopping at Il Postino, Amalfi (of course!), and Sorrento. The only cons was the lunch place. It was pricy compared to the food quality and overall service.
