Cons: Too little time in Positano. We had 2 hrs in Positano for sightseeing/shopping/dinner. We were picked up 30min late. Choice of the restaurant for dinner Bucca di Baco, although the location was nice, the food was average. Convenient but pricey guided tour. Something we could have done much cheaper on our own.
Pros: Small group of 20 people. Safe and convenient ride in an air-conditioned minibus. We had two stops for taking photos of panoramic views one on the way to and another from Positano. Our tour guide Roberto was great. He shared lots of interesting information on history of Positano and recommendations for points of interest.
We had a delightful evening in Positano! Had we known, we would have booked the dinner option - we found a place on our own that was not very good Avoid Chez Black on the beach - awful service and the food was not worth the price. The tour guide was lots of fun with very high energy, he showed us around town and where to go. The goal here was for them to acquaint you with Positano and the surrounding area and then let you roam around and shop, etc... Which is just what we did. Fabulous evening outside of our poor restaurant choice. We recommend finding a place with good reviews in advance.
A delightful trip.We left at about 5.30p.m arriving in Positano when it was still light.
As it got darker the magic of Positano at night came into its own.
It is quite a walk, all downhill, to the beachside restaurants.The steps are so worn they are shiny and slippery in places and there is two way human traffic, so be careful.
There was an option of including a meal on this tour which is available in one of the beachside restaurants.We did not opt for this but the people who did obviously enjoyed it.
However, there is not reall y enough time to shop and eat so it is a case of choice.We opted to visit the shops instead. Lovely linen and leather but prices were not cheap although look carefully and you may be lucky enough to grab a bargain.There is also an intereting art gallery close to where the bus drops you of which is worth a visit.Prices are eyepopping.
Again, another great tour by Viator.
This is a must see if your staying in Sorrento. It is a 6 hour trip into Positano were you have free time to do your own thing. We went down to the beach and had I nice tea before having a walk around town looking at all the shops. I was very happy we done this tour and didn't stay there, it is very steep, not to many flat areas, but we worth the look.
Cons: small group of 24 people. Little information on history of Positano and recommendations for points of sightseeings.
Pros: safe and convenient ride in an air conditioned bus. We had two stops for some panoramic view ... on the way to Positano around 7pm and on the way back around 10pm . We had full 2 hrs in Positano for sightseeing/shopping/dinner.
Basically it was a convenient but pricey for that purpose alonebus ride rather than a guided tour.
This worst excursion I had booked onto whilst staying in Sorrento. No confirmation of pick up time, multiple phone calls later and a late pick up, a rushed tour, a lot of waiting around and no clarity from the guide. I would not use this company again. Capri and the blue grotto however were stunning
This was a very expensive bus ticket. Before we booked, we asked which hotel we should go to for pick up and we were told the pick up would be at the train station near our appartement. We assumed that would also be the drop off after the tour. Wrong. Anyhow, the pick up was set for 5 o'clock, someone finally arrived at 6:15 after we made a phone call and tried to communicate with someone who spoke very little english. When we finally arrived at the bus and took our seats, the guide annonced on the intercom now that we are all finally here we can go. Need I remind you we waited 1hour and 15 minutes for the pickup...
We were told that there would be a stop during the ride where we could take pictures, the bus barely slowed down at one point and that was it. During the trip, the guide gave very little information about Positano and had a anecdote about one island. Once we arrived in Positano, she led us to a corner of a street and told us we were on our own, the beach was that way and make sure your're back at the bus at 9:45. We really did not need to book a tour for that, we could have gone by bus on our own and saved a lot of money.
Once back at the bus, the guide came to us in very abrupt manner to inform us that she was taking us only as far as Sorento and then we had to find a way back to Seiano on our own, at around 10:15 when the trains or buses were not in service anymore. She suggested we take a taxi and informed us it was not her responsability. The bus driver who spoke very little english understood the situation we were in and he was the one to help us, he called a friend of his that picked us up on the way and drove us almost to our front door. We thank that bus driver very much for taking such good care of us.
This vacation to the Amalfi Coast was a gift to celebrate my daughter's college graduation. We arrived at our Villa about 3pm and this tour allowed us to hit the ground running. If you're not staying right in Sorrento, most tour companies will not pick you up but will have you meet at a central location in either Sorrento or Naples. Since we had just arrived, we did not have our bearings so this tour was perfect as the this company was very accommodating and picked us up at our location outside of town. This helped us greatly as were able to get a grasp of the city of Sorrento and landmarks immediately which prepared us well for our weeks stay. Anyway, our tour guide, Anna Lisa was a lovely person who sincerely seemed to enjoy people. She was cheerful and made sure we all enjoyed our time as we drove to Positano. She told us so much about Positano and all the sights along the way. AnnaLisa had our wonderful driver stop at a perfect spot to take pictures just prior to getting into Positano. Pictures do not even capture the beauty of the Amalfi Coast. We did not choose the meal option but perhaps should have because we ended up eating at the same restaurant and the food was delicious!! This was a great way to start our week!
