Excellent trip to three of the most memorable Italian towns on the Amalfi coast, with a good driver Antony who was informative but not overly so. He took us to a nice restaurant high in the hills above Positano where we met Luigi the charismatic owner. This was one of the best shore excursions of our cruise.
The tour was great. Our tour guide was very informative and had a great sense of humor. She kept us moving because of our time restraints and we got to see all of the sights with enough time and back to the ship. The highlights were definitely Positano where we had a very tasty lunch and a fabulous view over looking the city and bay. Also Amalfi was really picturesque. We highly rate this tour.
Maria was our tour guide and she was fabulous!!! Driving around through the narrow winding streets in Amalfi was specatular and got to see alot of things you can not see on a big tour bus. She gave us just the right amount of free time on our own to shop and have lunch. would highly reccomend and do it again myself.
Our driver was prompt and very friendly though spoke very little english. We had a bit of trouble getting out of the port due to some misunderstanding with the port authority and the driver. Once on the road, the trip was really amazing. It was truly worth seeing and experiencing the culture in which they live in this region. Violets were blooming and it was just like the pictures you see painted of the Amalfi Coast. Food was amazing and the people were friendly. We still can't get over the way they drive in Europe, CRAZY and fast. Our drive was very careful and no one felt unsafe and nor car sick which is important to note since the road is very narrow and curvey. Over all it was a major highlight to our 18 day trip to Italy. Beautiful country!
The tour was fine. The area was beautiful. One minor complint was the estaurant that the driver took us. The set up was rushed and was a fixed price that we only found out about when the bill came. This put a damper on the day.
Out of 8 ports, this was by far the most disappointing. Our guide was a very poor representation on your behalf, I wouldn't want her to be representing me. We had 5 of us, and they all asked me how we get our money back...it was a real nightmare. She couldn't speak english - couldn't answer our questions, and was yelling to try to get us to understand her. It was raining, and we all got totally wet, while she enjoyed her hood and umbrella. We were miserable. Also, we never got to see Naples. We were all pumped to have pizza in Naples, and we never got there. We had pizza from a fast food joint in Amalfi in the rain. Not what we had expected - especially when we travelled thousands of miles to get there. We asked her to take us back to the ship and we exited the van as quickly as we could. Terrible, Terrible, Terrible!
