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.
Our tour along the Amalfi Coast with Rosario was wonderful. The forecast was predicted to be 80 percent chance of rain with a soaking rain for most of the day with high winds reaching 40 miles an hour. We were so surprised when we reached Positano and Ravello and the sun actually came out. Although we had overcast nothing could have ruined the views that we had along the coast and in each area that we visited. Rosario was the perfect gentleman and a joy to be with. He took us to a beautiful restaurant in Postiano for lunch with window seats allowing us to take in the beautiful views.
Viator was great to work with and we will definitely arrange future tours through the Viator website.
We look forward to visiting Sorrento and the Amalfi Coast again and hope that we are lucky enough to have Rosario as our driver.
Thank you for this wonderful experience of a lifetime.
Rosario was our driver and he did an amazing job of making our day enjoyable. He was so knowledgeable and gave us so much interesting information without saturating us. He was a was so relaxing and he gave us good driver and We never felt unsafe or nervous riding on those curvy roads. Excellent
We booked this full day excursion after ready such favourable reviews on Viator. It was certainly money we'll spent! We opted to book with just the driver as having a guide was double the price and earlier reviews said it wasn't necessary. Our driver was fantastic! We were picked up at our hotel in a new model Mercedes. Talk about luxury! Throughout the entire trip he was so helpful. He stopped frequently at all the best spots for photos and was a great photographer! He was very knowledgeable with information on all the stops we made. And the best part is we didn't have to drive those scary roads ourselves!
This was a very nice day trip, we were surprised he arrived in a Mercedes. The whole way down Tony drove very smooth. We stopped along in certain towns and then we had Lunch in Revello, which sits up on a cliffside. The views were spectacular. We never felt rushed and spent just the right amount of time in each city. I would highly recommend this tour if you are staying in the Sorrento area.
This was a great way to spend a day and see the Amalfi coast. We drove around all of the cliffs and visited the great cities of Amalfi, Positano, and Ravello. If you have a couple of people it's definitely worth splitting the cost. After you do this tour, you'll wonder how people take busses on those narrow roads!
My 80 year father, husband and I cannot say enough about the quality and care of service that our driver , Johnny, provided for us. While he claimed his english was "not so great", we found him to be easily understandable and truly enriched our experience. He was prompt and professional and shared interesting tidbits about the area with us. He stopped at many beautiful vantage points for pictures, and also took several of us. He showed us things we would never have noticed on our own - my favorite being the natural formation of the Madonna looking out over the bay. His recommendation for lunch with an UNBELIEVABLE view was spectacular. We feel we had a a true emersion into the culture and beauty of this area, and felt as if we had shared the day with a family friend. Anyone contemplating this experience should really try it , because it is so much more that a bus tour!!!!
