Worth the booking!!! We had an incredible time on the tour of the Path of the Gods with Enzo. He was so knowledge of the trail and was very informative throughout the entire journey! I highly suggest getting a guide, yes you can research and “go for a hike” but the experience was heightened having an experienced guide with us. He took us on a path that was safer and higher and not well known to tourists- the views alone were worth it. He helped us arrive safely at the end and could not recommend having a guide more!

Overall a very enjoyable excursion. Our “skipper” (Salvatore) was knowledgeable and extremely accommodating. We took in innumerable extraordinary sights up and down the Amalfi coast, cruised around Capri to marvel at the island and insane yachts in the harbor, stopped several times to swim (including inside caves — very cool), and had a fabulous lunch at Mariagrazia in Nerano. Perfect way to spend the day on the water!

Excellent tour. Patrick, our guide, and Franco, our captain, were both terrific. We had a wonderful experience sailing around the island of Capri, making stops at the Blue Grotto and other fabulous sights. We even stopped for lunch at a very nice waterfront restaurant. The tour capped off with an added treat: limencello made by Franco's mother! Absolutely delicious.

Sergio was so amazing. He knew so much and he was so accommodating. We would totally recommend his tour as his boat was also easy to get around on and shaded and comfortable. Thanks for an amazing experience Sergio! Ciao'

Much more to discover that I expected! We would have missed the best of Salerno without this tour.
