The tour was very well run and we enjoyed it very much. I felt that it was a little rushed but I do understand there it’s only a limited amount of time given for each place we stopped in. Our driver was awesome but our tour guide could have been more personable. We felt like she didn’t want to be bothered eating up to us.

Bellissimo tour , soprattutto il giro in barca ad Amalfi , pranzo con una vista magnifica , il tutto accompagnato un fantastico autista Remigio, e la nostra guida Connie che oltre ad essere molto preparata è anche molto simpatica!

Ferry boat to destinations. Washrooms on board, and also a great cantina for water, beer, snacks and amazing fresh melon (very reasonable priced!!!) Easy with family. Get to boat early to get a decent seat!

Sandra was a really pleasant guide and made everyone welcome, would highly recommend her as your guided. Rosario's driving skills were exceptional navigating those many twists and turns of the narrow roads

I really enjoyed this trip. The bus had air condition and we managed to see a lot of Italy. Places we wouldn't know about unless we tok this trip.
