Outstanding. The best small group tour we’ve experienced. Tony, our guide, was engaging, informative, enthusiastic…a great host. The 90 minute stops on Amalfi and Positano were the right length…this is not a tour focused on the two towns, it’s all about the scenery and the ride. We’ve been to the Amalfi Coast three times, and you really can’t fully appreciate it until you see it be boat. It is truly awesome. It was a perfect way to spend a day, well worth it. We’d do it again!!

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!

We have seen much more than expected. Giovanni and his crue went out of their way to make it the most memorable trip on the Amalfi coast.

a must do trip if visiting amalfi - also recommended adding the swimming stop

Boat views were spectacular! Very touristy in town.
