Our trip was very interesting. Our driver, Savio was an excellent driver, very helpful, he gave us enough time to visit the places mentioned, and to snap some wonderful photos. The places we visited are marvellous!! I highly recommend this tour. Thanks Savio, thanks Viator. Michael and Connie from Malta

Stuck in heavy traffic leaving Naples. Driver drove dangerously to try and make up time. Collided with a taxi and got in a shouting match (most entertaining part of the tour). Reduced our time in towns signifantly.

This was an amazing trip along the Amalfi Coast. I’ve done the public bus route before, and while economical, it makes the trip to one of the most beautiful places in the world so stressful. Jean Franco was our driver for this trip and he was so patient with my 70+ year old parents and aunt. I really appreciated our ability to park as far down the Positano cliffs as possible. This allowed my family to enjoy the beauty of the place. We also had a stop for lunch before arriving in Amalfi that was delicious and affordable. Ravello is so amazing— heaven on earth! I highly recommend this semi-private drive along the coast. PS- no category for type of visit for us— Family (seniors).

I was in Napoli for just a couple days and desperately wanted to see the Amalfi Coast. I found this tour and was extremely happy with how it turned now out. Our driver, Giovanni, was funny and pleasant. He was also an excellent driver, navigating us through the mountains and around tight roads with ease. We were able to see Ravello, Amalfi, and Positano, though the road to Sorrento was closed due to a fire. An hour in each location can be a short amount of time if you are not efficient. I didn’t find it to be a problem, but this is not the kind of tour you should take if you want to sit down and relax in just one spot. Giovanni picked us up at our hotels and the train station. We had 8 people total on the tour that day, and it was the perfect size to be able to meet and get to a know a few others from different areas around the world. Giovanni also gave me some good tips for places to see in his native Napoli. Highly recommended for a quick but enjoyable tour of the Amalfi sites.

This was a good small group tour. It was a great change from the larger group tours. The Amalfi coast is so beautiful. The only thing I would recommend is to have better air conditioning. This was a large van. Also, if the tour guide could speak into a micro phone. We had a hard time hearing him. Also, to tell people to bring a swim suite as we had an hour to visit a beach.

Sabio picked us up early. Friendly and engaging (even helped us with how to get to Pompeii).

One hour is too short for each city. 90min would be better. We finished around 5pm, arriving back in Naples around 6:30. A full day until 8 would have been made the price we paid more worth it (like a full day Tuscany tour that we had done from Florence).

We took the fast train from Rome to Naples and when we got there the tour bus was waiting for us at the easy to find designated location just outside the train station. Antonio, our driver and guide was very good and pleasant. Because it is a long, winding road, we only had about 1 hour in each of the 4 towns we visited, but we found that was enough time to shop or get a quick bite to eat. This was a great way to get to see many beautiful places on the coast all in one day. We arrived back at the Naples train station with plenty of time to catch our train back to Rome. So glad we took this tour.

This trip was the highlight of our holiday to Naples. The trip was well planned making sure you were able to see all of the highlights of the Amalifi Coast within one day which is exactly what we wanted. The driver was very nice and friendly and gave us interesting facts along the route. Would definitely recommend.

We were picked up 40 minutes late- waited whole time in hot sun at pick up point wondering when they would arrive. Had to call Viator. Apparently Monday am construction and re routed traffic was the cause.
Best part of this independent tour is having someone else drive the very long and windy roads on edge of cliffs of the coast. Other nice thing is you get an hour in each of the 4 cities of Sorrento, Positano, Amalfi, and Rovello on your own so you make this what you want it to be. Not sure need to include Rovello as little there to do and see. Would rather have had more time at other cities but as it was, an hour is really enough time to get a feel for each town and do some shopping and exploring.
Would not recommend if you get car sick easily as the tiny mountain roads literally wind back and forth and back and forth the whole time once off the highway. Lunch is on your own as is everything else. Very little if any direction from the driver as he is not a tour guide. If you like independent exploring, this is a tour for you.

No words to explain how wonderful this tour was - even despite the horrible weather. Our guide, David, was amazing and such a good driver through the winding roads. Not once did I feel nervous or worried. It was lovely driving through the entire coast throughout the day and getting to explore different locations. He recommended things for us to do/try at each stop. We had lunch at a delicious restaurant on a cliff overlooking the water with food that I still dream of. This was one of our favorite days during our 9 day trip through the Mediterranean.
