Amalfi Coast Private Day Tour from Sorrento

Amalfi Coast Private Day Tour from Sorrento

By taking a private tour, you have the option to spend as little or as much time as possible in the picturesque towns of Positano, Amalfi and Ravello, world famous for their charm and colorful architecture.

The villages scattered along the Amalfi Coast have always attracted visitors, bewitching all who visit. The charm lies not only in the towns themselves but also in their history and rich legacy of fine churches, villas and monasteries.

Positano sits in a splendid panoramic position on one of the most beautiful stretches of coastline. Its enchanting town center of delightful pastel-hued houses surrounds the parish church of Santa Maria Assunta, its laneways are lined with quaint, colorful shops and its numerous beaches are world famous.

Amalfi's typically Mediterranean architecture, made up of lanes and characteristic white houses piled one upon the other, makes it one of Italy's most famous resorts.

Ravello is situated in a more elevated position than the other pearls of the Amalfi Coast, boasting exceptional views of the coast and its marvelous villas and gardens.

It was a wonderful day excursion in a private car in early October that was well worth the fee. Johnnie, our driver was great. Although he wasn't a guide, he pointed out interesting sites and features of this amazing coastline. He also took us to a wonderful restaurant high above Positano that had very simple but amazingly fresh and homemade food. One of the best dining experiences we had in our 3 week stay in Italy. Don't do buses heresplurge on a private car... you won't regret it.

This tour was the absolute highlight of our trip to Sorrento! Giovanni Johnny was wonderful. He spoke great English, was polite, funny and was focused on making sure we had a great day. He was extremely knowledgeable about the area and was very flexible if we wanted to stay in one place a little longer. He was punctual and arrived early to pick us up at the hotel. He took us to a wonderful place for lunch with impeccable food and a stunning view. Driving the winding road back to Sorrento Johnny played the most wonderful music. I will always remember listening to him and my mom sing Italian songs all the way home. It was like something out of a movie. Thank you Johnny for making this truly an unforgettable day that both of us will cherish forever.

If you are planning to visit the Amalfi Coast, you should take this tour. There is nothing that can compare. And if you can, request Giovanni. He made this a truly magical experience! I am definitely going to request him for the same tour on my next trip to Sorrento!

Loved this trip! Rosario was very professional and stopped many times along the way so I could take photos of the best scenery. He even acted as our tour guide even though we only hired him as a driver. Rosario was very calm while driving the narrow and busy roads, even when the other drivers on the road were not! He recommended great shops and the restaurant for lunch was the best Italian food we had the whole trip. It was also on the beach with an awesome view and had lemon vines hanging from the trellis along the balcony. I think it was connected to the Hotel Luna. We would definitely recommend him and the villages were amazing!

This was a fabulous day, made extra special by our driver Giovanni who stressed that it was our day and made sure that we saw and did everything we wanted. He arrived promptly at our Sorrento hotel at 9am, and helped us into his very comfortable Mercedes, opening the doors for us each and every time we got in. He spoke English well and told us many things of interest as we headed along the beautiful Amalfi coast road, stopping frequently wherever he knew there were good picture opportunities, before giving us an hour to explore Amalfi itself, time for a coffee and to explore the amazing cathedral.
Then it was on to Ravello, with another hour to look round this charming hilltop town. As we headed back towards Positano we passed a restaurant where Giovanni was hailed by a friend but he explained to him that he wouldn't be stopping that day as we had said we had no plans for lunch and would simply have a quick salad somewhere. As we drove on Giovanni told us the restaurant was one of his favourites, with good food at reasonable prices and a beautiful view. Of course that brought about an instant change of mind on our part! So, somewhat surprised, Giovanni turned the car round and and we enjoyed an excellent lunch of fresh fish, sitting under lemon trees with a glorious view over the Gulf of Salerno.
Then it was on to Positano for a final hour of exploring the narrow, steep streets down to the sea, dipping into many of the all-too tempting shops. While an hour is not long enough to see any of the three towns fully it provided a wonderful taster of each and we look forward to longer, separate visits in future.
Our unscheduled lunch stop had added time on to the day but Giovanni stressed again that he just wanted us to have the best possible experience, and he did not mind extending his working day.
This tour is not cheap but my husband and I both felt it was excellent value. Above all we would like to thank Giovanni, who made our special day so very memorable.

We booked several tours with Viator but by far this tour guide and driver were heads above the rest!

I had only wished we had them for all our traveling in Italy!

Personally plus, knowledge beyond compare and a passion for their work.

We felt as if we were old friends and even insisted they have lunch with us.

Thank you for a day to remember, your amazing and will never be forgotten!

We had a beautiful tour of the Amalfi Coast, I had read many previous reviews and had requested Rosario to be our driver. We were delighted with the information that he shared with us, very friendly and was able to easily accommodate our needs. He brought us to a wonderful lunch spot, we were able to view the ocean and had a lemon tree arbor over head. I highly recommend this tour.
