We absolutely loved this tour! We were picked up in a new, very clean bus a few feet away from our living accommodations. Sofia, our tour guide was so sweet, super funny, and extremely knowledgeable about the coast, you can tell she enjoys interacting with people from all over the globe and making connections. The times given at each local were plenty to see each what we needed to see, we were given a history and tips of the best places to hit before arriving at each place. The drive view and beach views were amazing! Sofia even managed to get us on a impromptu boat ride along the Amalfi coast which made up for our Capri bot tour getting cancelled last minute. Couldn’t have asked for a better guide, driver, and overall experience. Best part of our Italy trip this far. Highly recommend!
We booked this tour prior to leaving UK in view of the excellent previous reviews. We were not disappointed as everything was perfect even though a shower of rain on our way to Positano disdn't dampen our spirits. If you are in the area for a short space of time, as we were, this is an excellent way of discovering the 3 main attractions in the area, namely Positano, Amalfi and Ravello. When in Ravello be sure to visit the Villa Rufolo for some wonderful views along the coast line. The time spent in each place was limited but it did enable one to get a 'taster'. The non compulsory 1 hour boat trip from Amalfi harbour along the coastline was well worth the extra 12 Euros as one could view the villas of the rich and famous which were not possible from the road. I'm not sure what the traffic would be like in the height of the summer but even in late April is was quite congested. The skill of our diver was amazing and our tour guide Roberto was very friendly, knowledgable and amusing. All in all a great 8 hours well spent and thoroughly recommended.
The Amalfi Coast is beautiful. Each of the towns were quaint and charming in their own way. Our only complaint was was a side effect of the windy road. It wasn’t anyone’s fault but if you suffer from motion sickness, BEWARE! This road (especially in a bus) will leave your stomach churning.
My partner (26 years) and I (24 years) enjoyed the full day bus tour of the Amalfi Coast. The luxury Mercedes bus collected us from a hotel nearby to our accommodation on time and drove the scenic route to Positano, then on to Amalfi and Ravello. The benefit of having a small bus was the ability to traverse narrower paths than larger coaches were able to, and therefore to experience varied and incredible vistas. The bus driver was very capable of navigating the winding terrain and the host was amusing and knowledgeable, and spoke through a well projected microphone to the eight guests on board. There was ample free time afforded in each location, though you could easily spend longer in each (and any less time would have been too short), and it was a good opportunity to see a great deal of the coast in one day. The host provided good recommendations for local eateries and sights worth seeing (or not seeing, as the case may be) and it was good fun to associate with other native English speakers after a long time away from home. If you are confident navigating the public transport system, could afford the time (with respect to transfers and layovers), and doing your own research with respect to the history of the locality, this trip could be done for significantly less money but this tour was a neat way of having the obligation for investigation removed and quickly capitalising on limited time to see the gorgeous coastline and coastal towns.
We booked this visit through Viator before leaving the UK. It proved to be an excellent day out, Coach on time, SaSa our guide, was organised, informative and good fun. We visited three small towns which were stunning and also as an addition went on 45 minute coastal boat ride which was also fantastic. Would recommend this trip.
