Our tour guide was AMAZING! A real local, so knowledgeable about the area and highly entertaining. She did the tour in both English and Italian, going back and forth between the two. We felt the time in Positano was a bit too long (same stuff to see/eat/do as Amalfi) at the end of the day, but otherwise the trip was fabulous. Side note: a list of the better restaurants in Amalfi would have been nice, we chose poorly and ended up eaten the worst food of our whole trip there (still decent, but not nearly as good as other places).

Our guide was very friendly and informative. We chose the tour with pickup from Sorrento. It was so worth it. The shuttle drive alone from Sorrento to Nerano was an adventure and a peek into other towns. The Amalfi coast is stunning. We went for our honeymoon and highly recommend this boat tour. Our stop in Amalfi was lovely.. Positano was nice too!

This is a wonderful tour for those who wish to visit Amalfi and Positano. You have ample time to visit each. Our guide onboard, Giuseppe, was informative and entertaining.

Great host. Made to feel incredibly welcomed. An outstanding day from start to finish

Boat views were spectacular! Very touristy in town.
