We asked for a less expensive room in our Sorrento hotel so we could splurge on this private tour. We are glad we did. After reading the reviews,and knowing we would feel sick on a bus on those winding roads, we decided to request Rosario to drive us along the Amalfi coast.. We elected not to have a tour guide as we were toured out by then and relished the quiet and slower pace. Rosario was prompt picking us up at our hotel, kind, a gentleman, a very safe driver and very personable and comfortable to be with. He was a perfect balance between allowing us our space and providing us with interesting information as we drove along. Rosario knew to stop at key points for photo taking and, as he did with those before us, suggested a restaurant between Ravello and Positano that had very flavorful food. We enjoyed our meal overlooking the coast and under 100year old lemon trees. Of the 3 towns we visited, Amalfi, Positano and Ravello, we enjoyed Ravello the most. It was the least touristy of the towns. Though we appreciated what Italy has to offer, i.e. ceramics, oils, cheeses, textiles, shoes!, Ravello was more Music centered. When we return , we will be sure to stay in Ravello for a few days. On our ride back we played Italian music Return to Sorrento and Pavarotti as Rosario drove us back to our hotel, for the full experience ! We would highly recommend this tour and Rosario as your driver. Be sure to wear good walking shoes! FYI, we learned while touring Pompeii that the best of Pompeii is in the archeological museum in Naples!
This is a must do trip. Breathtaking views and the towns are fantastic!
So glad we decided to book this tour. Our driver was great and got us to each destination on time and safe. The Amalfi Coast roads are very scary so I am glad we didn't try to drive ourselves we never would have seen everything that we did with Pepe. We didn't have a guide so we were on our own in each town which was great. We had a couple options for lunch and ended up with a fantastic view of the coast. It was a great day!
This tour was so much fun! We really enjoyed ourselves. We were a bit worried we would miss out on some things because we had no guide, but our driver Rosario was very knowledgeable and spoke an impeccable English. He was very professional and was willing to adapt to our needs. We felt safe having him as our driver and he took us to an amazing place overlooking the sea for a nice, quiet lunch. It was a really great way to experience all the beauty of the Amalfi coast. We couldn't have asked for more! We even saw Rosario 2 days later in Sorrento while walking on our food tour and he was actually the one that spotted us and rolled down his window to wave hello at us. Really nice guy and an excellent photographer too! Go ahead and book this tour without a guide, you will not be disappointed! The Amalfi coast is absolutely beautiful!
We took the drive along the Amalfi Coast with 6 people in our party. The van was comfortable and the driver knowledgeable on the area. It was a beautiful day trip and one that we recommend to everyone staying along the coast!
Great tour. Great driver. Door to door service and well worth the investment.
So glad we splurged on the private tour. Our driver, Adriano, was punctual, friendly, and very accommodating. He offered to take our photo at several scenic locations and recommended a fantastic restaurant for lunch with a breath-taking view of the coast. Most importantly, he drove us safely on this very crowded road. We very much enjoyed our tour of the Amalfi Coast and would highly recommended it.
This tour was the highlight of our week in Sorrento. The views were amazing and our driver, Gianni, was excellent. I will happily recommend this tour to friends and family visiting the region.
What a wonderful way for us both to see the wonderful views of the Amalfi coast and to experience the narrow, winding coast road in comfort and safety. We were picked up from our hotel and the day was just so relaxing. We stopped in Positano and Amalfi where we had lunch at Stella Maris which was wonderful and had time to wander around both of these lovely little towns. We decided not to bother with Ravello as were going to be staying there for two nights after our stay in Sorrento.
We both preferred Amalfi which had some wonderful shops and was very photogenic.
Anthonio, our driver, did some explaining but his English was just so-so and he needed to concentrate on the roads as the Italian drivers can be a bit crazy! How buses managed to get past each other on the bends and little narrow road is a miracle that is great to watch.
This is a beautiful way of seeing the coast rather than being squeezed in to a shared minibus or coach as it is more relaxed and open and you are able to amend the itinerary to suit yourself.
Our driver and guide were really great. They provided a tour that suited our capabilities since we had some difficulty climbing stairs. Their flexibility and attention to our needs was wonderful. They did everything to make sure we had a full experience of the Amalfi coast. One added bonus was a boat tour from the Amalfi port to experience the coast from the water, I recommend that you add this even though it is extra, it was well worth it.
Great trip! Driver, Salvio, was brilliant in the heavy traffic and the dramatic roads.
The restaurant to which he took us for lunch was absolutely superb smashing food and amazing views.
This tour was priced just right and exceeded our expectations! Our Driver, Rosario was knowledgeable and very attentive. Having experienced both private and group tours, I would say a private tour is the way to go. Having our own car made the tour more intimate. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone traveling to Italy.
Outstanding guide and driver. Only way to see crowded Amalfi Coast-forget the big bus tours this tour is worth the money.
Sent comments earlier but forgot to include the star rating. Our rating is definitely 5 stars. Geoff and Kay, Australia
Rosario was top notch !!! His English is great his knowledge of the coast and Italy awesome!!! He was sweet kind polite professional !! The mix of the towns and beaches were awesome! He even helped us find the exact place my Mom visited many years ago !!! The suggestion for lunch was fantastic!!!
This tour was one of the highlights of our trip. Our driver Ciro was excellent and made a very nervous passenger on such a winding road relax and really enjoy themselves. Maria our guide was excellent. She was extremely welcoming and warm as well as having an excellent knowledge of the area. The beautiful views, visits to the local towns, especially Rsvello were wonderful. Visiting the Vila which hosts concerts was well worth the additional cost. Our lunch stop was not with all the tourists. It was a quaint restaurant perched high above the ocean. We had a wonderful trip all round and thoroughly recommend it.
EXCELLENT..BEST TOUR YET..The drivrr was excellent and so informative and such a good driver..
Absolutely the best way to view the Amalfi cost. Rosario was really accommodating and has a wealth of knowledge given that he has been doing this for fifteen years. He was a fantastic driver given the small tight corners and trucks and buses that you have to pass along the way. I don't know how everyone doesn't have more crashes. We were very fortunate with the weather as it was fantastic. So a great day
Best trip ever! We were told our driver would have minimal English skills but our driver Savio's English was excellent. He was very professional and shared history of the region, pointed out specific scenic sites, stopped at scenic places to take pictures. Was kind enough to take pictures of us. Offered interesting details--such as the hotel where some celebrities were married. Liked our own time in Amalfi, Ravello, and Positano. But Savio pointed us in the right direction and gave us plenty of time. Definitely would recommend this tour. Worth every cent!
Great tour! The van was nice and our guide was very kind. As a bunch of college students traveling, we did the tour without the guide and it was perfect. Great value for the money and would definitely recommend.
I absolutely loved this! Being on a private tour is really nice as you can dictate how long you'd visit an area. Our driver Pepe was fantastic and he stopped at the most interesting vistas for us to photograph.
Loved our driver! He was very informative and customized to what we wanted to see! Highly recommend!
We loved the Amalfi Coast tour . It was amazing we like our guide I think her name was Anna Sophia she was very well informed and we also like our chauffeur he was a skilled driver . Throughly enjoyed our lunch and all the town she took us to. Would recommend highly
What a wonderful day. We were picked up at our accommodation by Johno our driver. He took us down the Amalfi coastline and stopped for photos and explained the region to us and also recommended a beautiful restaurant situated on the hillside overlooking Positano. He had excellent English skills, was polite and attentive. We highly recommend his services to anyone who wishes to take this excellent tour down the coast from Sorrento to see Amalfil, Positano and Ravello. An excellent day. Thanks Johno!
This was a very good tour. Our driver and guide picked us up at our hotel. They explained what our tour included but asked us if there was anything special that we wanted to do. Not knowing the area the guide made some really good suggestions. What we were looking for is someone to basically drive us up this coast but in a more private setting. For the most part we were given ample time but wish we had spent more time in Amalfi itself. I highly recommend this tour if you want to escape the tour bus group for a more personal time.
