This tour was absolutely breath taking. I’ve never in my life experienced anything this beautiful. Raphael picked us up right on time and was a great driver during the whole tour - how he managed to navigate that big bus through those narrow streets is a miracle, but he did incredible. Very friendly guy as well. Francesca our guide went above and beyond today. She was so friendly and outgoing, but most of all informative. She did a great job at catering to everyone’s language preferences. She knew all the ins and outs of the towns and recommended some fantastic places to visit. I learned so much about the history of the towns as well from her. From the moment we were picked up, to the moment we were dropped off we had an amazing time. As beautiful as everything is, it was Raphael and Francesca who really helped make the day special - we never would have had close to a similar experience on our own. (If you guys are reading this, thank you so much from your Canadian friends!)

We had a wonderful day on the boat and at Capri. Our transportation from Positano to Sorrento was on-time and excellent; the boat captains told us all about the area, took us swimming, and served plenty of drinks, snacks, and sandwiches; and we had a good time exploring around Capri (recommend taking the gondola to the top and/or having a plan for what you want to do on Capri before you get there). As others noted, we would have liked more time on the boat and a little less time on Capri but all-in-all it was a really fun day (if you are in Positano, just a note that we did not arrive back to our Airbnb until about 1945).

The full day boat trip was a highlight of our experience along the Amalfi coast! Transportation by van to Sorrento was on time, and the driver professional. We toured around the entire island by boat, with the highlight of swimming in the beautiful water near one of the grottos. We also enjoyed our free on the island to explore. It is a long day due to the drive from Positano to Sorrento. I would recommend trying to find the same trip out of Positano if possible. They book up fast, and were sold out by the time we were looking.

The description did not mention that the ships sail out from Nerano meaning a lot of extra shuttle bus drive for us from Sorrento but anyway the trip was worth it.

Nice excursion, beautiful villages of the Amalfi Coast. Our guide Rita is very nice
