Our driver was wonderful but there was so much traffic and crowds and we weren't as prepared as we could have been. We should have brought bathing suits and change of clothing but we weren't sure where we'd be able to do that. Because of the traffic we spent more time in the car than on land. We stopped at a beautiful place for lunch although a bit pricey (recommended by our driver).

If you're in Naples or Sorrento for a few days, this tour is perfect because you have the opportunity to see much within the limited time frame that you have. Also since this is a private tour, you can choose the time you wish to be collected from your Hotel by your driver and guide.
However, do keep in mind that this tour is fast-paced, packed in with a lot and with a considerable amount of walking to be done- as the core areas of Ravello, Amalfi and Positano only allow pedestrian access. Plus with Positano being cut into a cliff, it's a lot of uphill and downhill, in sometimes very narrow areas. Nevertheless, there is literally no tour that I encountered that offered the opportunity to visit all the 3 towns in one day, which is why I readily opted for this one.
Our experienced and jovial driver, Eric, and affable guide, Alex, fetched us from our Sorrento hotel and en route to the coastal highway, the latter explained the day's itinerary to us and told us the history of the 3 towns we were going to visit. We would visit the mountaneous Ravello first, as the drive up to it would offer spectacular coastal and mountain views, plus take us through many interesting towns en route, next we would drive right down to the coast to visit Amalfi and save Positano for the end of our tour! Everything sounded great and it was!
We stopped many times en route to Ravello to take beautiful photographs, we also visited a reputed ceramic store and picked up interesting souvenirs. Ravello per se, is a small mountain encased town, but it's beauty lies in it being ensconed in nature. It is also involved with several music festivals. The drive down to Amalfi offered us very beautiful views as well. Arriving at Amalfi from lofty Ravello seemed unsual because it's exactly the opposite of Ravello- right at the level of the sea. There are many boat rides to be taken here, a nice beach, an interesting Cathedral to visit, delicious gelato to be savoured and fresh seafood take aways to be had in paper cones- also as Alex explained, the gentleman who invented the compass was from Amalfi. Next it was onwards to Positano. One of the most popular, photogenic, busiest and hardest to maneouver towns- but, the most interesting. Full of unique art galleries, stores, boutique hotels, restaurants, an iconic church- despite travelling the entire day, we still had the energy to explore with Alex by our side! Maybe it was the famous Amalfi gelato that pepped us up!
Make sure you try delicious lemon flavoured shaved ice granita enroute to/fro the towns or at Positano, try the region's famous Lacryma Christi Tears of Christ red wine and Amalfi's famed gelato and fresh seafood in a cone.
If you would like to make the most of your time and visit these 3 unique towns all in one day-this is the tour for you!

Wonderful, wonderful trip, a trip I've always wanted to do, there were 6 of us and we looked at the cost of going on a coach trip or paying the bit extra and going in our own car/van privately. Are we all pleased we decided to go for the private hire van. it was a great day out. The van arrived promptly I had an email the night before to confirm they were coming ..
Our driver CIRO was extremely knowledgable regarding routes, weather, crowds, best places to drop off and pick up, how long we would need, when would we like to eat if at all , what did we want to see so as he could fit it in...he was great and always very polite and professional. Here is a good example...in Positano he could have dropped us straight in the car park but he didn't,he stopped at the top of town by some old steps , he told us to walk down the steps and under the arch and we did as we were told , he then shouted over the wall and pointed which way to go.. again we did as we were told...then we saw the marvellous view of Positano that you see in all the holiday brochures. We have loads of wonderful pictures from that vantage point and we would have missed this sight had we been on a coach trip or with a driver that didn't care.
Thoroughly recommend this company and it's excellent value for money.

Our tour guide Alex Scellok was just amazing! Alex met us at the port of Sorrento and was very friendly and enthusiastic. We only had about six hours to visit the towns and ports of the Amalfi coast and the many other beautiful locations, but Alex and his driver, Enrico Di Biase, made sure to get as much as possible accomplished during our day tour including a beautiful lunch with a view of the amazing Amalfi coast including a stop at the beautiful Piccadilly Ceramiche factory and most importantly a visit with a Limoncello producer for tastings and purchases. Excellent and well-informed tour and visit of the Amalfi coast - many great memories and pictures. Thank you, Alex and Enrico, for the tour, the legends, the pictures, and the singing!

Alex and Gio picked us up promptly at 9:15am. They were wonderful! Alex’s English was perfect and his knowledge of all the different areas along the Amalfi Coast was great! He allowed us to customize the tour as we wanted, made sure we had lots of amazing photos and recommended a wonderful place to eat lunch overlooking the Mediterranean Sea. Amazing experience!!!

We usually don't do private drives, but wow this was worth every penny. The driver, Giovani was really great, knowledgeable and spoke English well. If we wanted to stop for any reason, he was very helpful and accommodating. Plus while driving he was happy to teach us some Italian, while we taught him some English words.

Highly recommend the tour!

It was a great day. The driver was very helpful and informative. You would have a difficult time covering the same ground on your own. We had a rental car and chose to take the tour.

Our guide was very congenial but had very little flexibility. I suggested we might want to visit some places other than the city centers but he ignored that suggestion. It would have been much cheaper and much the same to have taken a small group tour. In Italy there is a significant difference between a driver and a guide. Within the confines of his job our driver did a good job. And he took us to a very nice family owned restaurant outside of town. The traffic was horrible and there was not much to do but shop. Although the views are amazing I would probably have skipped this tour if I had known it was mostly for shopping.

Pepe Is the best driver on the Amalfi Coast! Traffic was horrific but he made the trip relaxing, beautiful, and fun! He picked us up on time and took us to Sorrento, Positano, Amalfi, and Ravello. He gave us great tips on what to do, including a magical place for lunch! Bravo Pepe!

Private car and driver is the way to go! 6 girlfriends engaged this fellow for a day and had a ball. He knew the area, places to shop, was polite and the minivan was excellent. Loved it!
