This was a wonderful excursion. It was well organized and the staff was excellent. Fun and knowledgeable about the area. The hike itself was ~ 2+ hours, but the views, the stop for lunch on the trail was exceptional. It was a family style long table lunch served by the guides. The actual hike started and and ended in Bomerano and does not go into any surrounding towns. The bus ride from Sorrento to the hike takes a little over an hour each way. Bring euros for lunch! It was a great way to spend the day. Highly recommended.

Simone and Antonio did a fantastic job in bringing us around Capri, sorrento and positano. They made us feel very comfortable and catered to our needs with good music! The boat was decent and very clean with Prosecco and drinks available anytime. It was a fantastic experience. Would 100% recommend this boat trip to anyone :)
