Great guide (Jessica), great boat ride. As we traveled to Amalfi, she shared information about what we were seeing (in three languages!). Very scenic - we sat outside in the front of the boat, which made the boat trip wonderful. We had great weather. We took the extra tour to Ravello which gave us both a van ride on the Amalfi road which was very interesting and scenic, plus an hour in Ravello. The guide gave us basic information and then we had free time. Small town, plenty of shops and food, and fantastic views. Highly recommend the trip to Ravello. This meant that we had only one hour in Amalfi (rather than 3), but that was plenty of time in Amalfi. Again, the guide gave us basic information, which was fine, and we got to explore in our own. In Amalfi, we enjoyed the lemon sherbet served in a lemon. Then an hour in Positano. Many people swam. Big beach. We enjoyed exploring. Great boat ride back. Great day!!

Simple, fun visit to Amalfi and Positano. Bus ride through the mountains is harrowing but fun (like all driving there). The boat crew was excellent and showed us islands and coastal feature. Comfortable and easy ride, everything on time.

We had a great time! The views were absolutely stunning, our guides Serena and Pasquale were fun and polite, and the limoncello factory tour was a great touch! We highly recommend.

Great time! Places for photos were amazing & Andrea took us to unique places with amazing views!

Well organized tour , No any delay , excellent customer service fantastic tour .
