Excellent package for a family ; very well organized; We had a private mini bus and a private tour guide, excellent with 20+years experience; we could not wish for more; strongly advise a guide as pompei ruins are huge ; also fast track pass was very handy as were a lot of tourists The lunch and wine tasting was excellent; beautiful restaurant It looks expensive but we were completely satisfied; money well spent

A bit cold for swimming this time of year (April) out on the water due to wind, but the beaches are a bit warmer if it’s sunny, so you can leave your swimwear and towel behind if you want. Otherwise great boat and fantastic crew. Just an awesome way to see the Amalfi coast. Enjoyed every minute!

Take a leisurely look at the coast. Two 1h stops showing life on land and the different places. Prosecco, a delicious sandwich and drinks including limoncello on board are enough. Parking in Salerno right by the port was easy, €12 with a credit card.

A wonderful boat trip with nice bathing stops and great food in between. An absolute recommendation to explore the Amalfi Coast from the water.

Nice boat tour, with the right mix. The boat size matched the number of participants very well.
