Meet your driver at your cruise port in Naples, where you’ll step aboard your minivan with your small group.

Head south to the town of Sorrento, with sweeping views of the Bay of Naples. Enjoy an hour of free time to wander the cafe-lined square of Piazza Tasso, check out the 15th-century cathedral or peruse the local shops.

Afterward, reunite with your driver and begin the ride along the Amalfi Coast, a 40-mile (64-km) shoreline dotted with pastel-colored villages and dramatic cliffs. Travel toward the town of Positano, with views of the Mediterranean and the region’s lemon groves lining the road.

Then, soak up an hour in Positano at your own pace. Visit the Church of St Maria Assunta, enjoy a coffee at a local café or browse the chic selection of shops.

Continue to the town of Amalfi and take another hour to explore at your leisure. Try some southern Italian fare for lunch (own expense) or admire the marble, 9th-century cathedral.

Your final stop takes you higher into the cliffs, to the town of Ravello. Consider using your free hour here to see the 13th-century Villa Rufolo (own expense), with gardens showcasing spectacular views of the coast.

After a full day of independent exploration, your trip will conclude back at the Naples cruise port.

An excellent experience off the cruise ship

If you only have a short time to explore this area, this excursion is a great option. Our driver/guide was very knowledgeable, pointing out highlights, stopping for photo opportunities, and taking us into the town centres of these great cities. Our small group of 8 had time to explore on our own, so everyone got to spend time doing things that interested them. A good choice for visitors that are able to walk distances without assistance.
A great Amalfi coast trip

our driver was very considerate of each of our group, gave information about trip and sights we were passing. He was very polite. Stopped for pictures. It was a great excursion. He was very conscientious about getting us back to our ship on time. I would highly reccomend this excursion.
Highly anticipated, highly disappointed!
, Sep 2019
We too the Amalfi Coast tour and where so excited as it was the most anticipated excursion of the entire 14 day cruise! We felt we where in a race the entire time! The driver seemed so rushed with us. I'd read and therefore expected the drive to be a bit rushed, but this driver was ridiculous. I don't scare easily, but I held on for dear life the entire last part of the trip. This trip should be definitely broken down into only two towns allowing for more time to explore. The driver was that and only that, my information, my conversation, nothing!! Just rush, rush, rush, hurry, hurry, hurry. It all went by in a blur, so sadly a very bad impression of my first tour with this company.
Not a very relaxing trip.

Viator delivered what it promised with this excursion. However this trip most certainly could have been better. The excursion lasted 10 hours. Much longer than we were expecting. This was not a relaxing trip. We joined the excursion from a cruise ship. We told the driver we needed to be back on board by 18:30; We made it back by 18:15! This margin of time was way too close for comfort!! The coastal road was full of hair-pin turns and other drivers that were very aggressive. While on the express way, we noticed the driver going 150-160 KPH (over 90 mph). We wasted over an hour of the trip at a restaurant for lunch. This was very annoying. My wife and I weren't asked if we wanted to stop. We most certainly would have wanted to spend more time in one of the beautiful cities we visited. I'm definately glad I was able to see Sorrento, Amalfi and Ravello. Those 3 cities were like heaven on earth. (Positano was great but way too crowded.) I would not recommend taking this excursion if you are on a cruise ship. Sorrento and Amalfi are amazing! I would recommend a single trip to Amalfi or Sorrento, preferrably via boat, so you may have more time visiting these beautiful places.
Poor use of time - Driver had his own agenda!
, Jun 2019
Was sooo looking forward to this excursion, and while we did go to each city overall we were very disappointed. Driver barely spoke English. Never slowed down or stopped at points with amazing views even when there was no one behind us - instead he drove like a bat out of hell the whole way. Gave us very little time in each city - not even an hour - and instead took us to junk store in the middle of nowhere AND stopped for lunch, again in the middle of nowhere, for over an hour of wasted time. This stop was definitely not mentioned on the Agenda, food was very overpriced, plus we had already eaten at one of the stops. First time we have been disappointed by Viator, but unfortunately were big time. Do NOT recommend this tour.
Fabulous Amalfi Coast

Great driver interaction, reliable safe brand new Merc Van. Awesome views. A must do. Forget the rest Amalfi is best.
Terrible experience

I had dozen of trips with viator and this was the worst. Firstly an excursion in English but the driver/guide does not have enough English ability. He was a terrible driver and at the end two members of my group got car sick. The tour was supposed to be an 8 hours one and we ended up close to cruise departure time. He took us to his recommended restaurant but did not tell us how much time we have there and ended with a rush. The entire group did not have objections to spending 10 minutes less in the afternoon stops so as to catch up the time but he insisted not.

The driver we had for this tour was absolutely horrible. We had an hour stop at each location which was wonderful but while in the van traveling to each location the driver would continue to drive as fast as he could and slam on the breaks everyone in the van had a headache after experiencing whip lash symptoms. While driving along the Almafi Coast the driver continued to try to pass busses and cars constantly honking and trying to swerve around them. We had booked 6 different tours with Viator, the other 5 tours were positive experiences but unfortunately we will never book again after this experience. We all felt our lives were in danger and told the driver so and he said too bad, this is how it is.
, Oct 2018
We only got to the first stop didn't get to visit the other two locations as promised. Taken to a restaurant the tour guide suggested, sure he got a kick back. Tour was not worth the money we spent and didn't get to the locations as promised.
