I would give this even more stars if you let me!
First --- The car was beautiful and since it was a private tour we were able to customize. Last minute, we decided to make this a trip to just Positano as we were all tired from the traveling.
WHAT A DAY! A day for the memory books! A day we will NEVER forget.
Giovanni was OUTSTANDING! he was kind and knowledgeable and very passionate about us enjoying the experience!
He took us to lunch at a restaurant. We had the best view I have ever seen from a table and the food was DELICIOUS. I am a chef, and my children and husband are foodies! This restaurant is going down as a must to return to and to and one of the best meals in Italy!. Giovanni was the most pleasant and charming driver and we felt like one of our family members was driving us around. GRAZIE!! and Giovanni - FANTASTICO!
Giovani was outstanding. Great driver and very knowledgeable. He is very patient and works hard to make sure you get the day you desire. Request Giovani!!!
Well worth the money to have a private tour. They design it to your needs and your interests!
The description says limited English but our driver, Manuel, was quite fluent. And terrific. He was lively, interactive, and fun. A pretty good singer, too. He knew the best way to approach the route to avoid some of the crowds. He tweaked the schedule to our request to spend more time in Positano and was patient with us when we got back to the car late. We felt completely safe the whole time. The car was spotless and very comfortable. Worth every penny!
Beautiful day trip on the Amalfi Coast visiting most of the towns along the way. It is a very busy road but our driver was an expert at negotiating the traffic and narrow roads. We loved it Thank you
This tour was AMAZING! Our guide, Sabio, was an absolute delight! He was very flexible and allowed us time to walk around in Positano and Ravello. We never felt rushed. He also made great recommendations on restaurants and local shops. He was full of useful information and made the drive through Amalfi Coast very comfortable. I would do this tour again and again!! Thanks for a great trip Sabio!
We loved our private tour of the Amalfi Coast. Based on other reviews, we requested Giavonni as our driver. He definitely lived up to our expectations. He made the day perfect for us. We were traveling with our daughter who had just graduated from college and he related to all of us! The sights were stunning and we were able to customize our time in each area. Great tour would do it again!
This was a perfect way to see the coast. My husband and I were both able to enjoy the beautiful scenery and stroll through the towns of Positano, Amalfi, and Ravello at our own pace. Our driver, Rosario was great. He had been driving the area for years and was able to point out places of interest along the road and answered all of our many questions. We would do this again over a bus tour.
Our trip to Positano, Amalfi, and Ravello was terrific. Our guide Claudio did a great job. He let us customize our trip the way we wanted. This was our first Viator tour and we would definitely use your services again.
This was a very enjoyable trip. Rosario our driver picked us up at our hotel and could not have been more professional and friendly. We did not book the guide option and this did not detract at all as Rosario was very knowledgable and his English was very good. Rosario stopped at various scenic points along the route so that we could take photographs. At each of the stops, Rosario advised us where to go and we were then at liberty to explore on our own. Before our last stop at Positano, Rosario recommended a lovely restaurant for lunch with stunning views - we would never have found this if Rosario had not recommended. While this was quite an expensive trip due to only bring two of us, we would highly recommend it and it was well worth the money.
Amazing tour. Would highly recommend to anyone thinking of taking this tour to go in a chauffeur driven car rather than taking the bus. My sister and myself are so pleased with took this option. Rozario, our driver, was absolutely first class in knowledge of the areas and was a very careful driver in those oh so narrow roads. Would highly recommend the Restaurant he stops at for lunch in Positano. Highlight of our holiday.
Words cannot describe the beauty of the Amalfi Coast it is something that needs to be experienced, having a driver and a guide makes it even more enjoyable. Mariana, our English speaking guide, along with Pepe, our driver made the whole day ours. We felt very safe in their company and they helped us discover the wonderful Amalfi coast. I highly recommend this tour, it has given us so many happy memories.
What am amazing day!!! We were promptly picked up at our hotel by Johnny. He spoke very good english, despite him saying he didn't!! We spent the day driving up and down the Amalfi Coast, stopped at placed at the side of the road that one would not normally see like a small fishing village in a small cove. We had an hour in Amalfi, Positano, and Ravello. If we wanted more time, we would only have to ask. All three places were beautiful! It was the perfect way to relax and enjoy the beauty of this part of Italy without having to worry about driving on SS163.
Johnny was a wonderful driver and did well in communicating with us. A lovely day and the weather outstanding!
Johnny was an incredible driver. We learned so much and had an incredible day touring the coast with him. He stopped in all the best spots for unbelievable photo ops. We will treasure these photos and memories from this day. This tour was our most expensive, but well worth the expense.
Our driver Gianni is a gem. He is a true master driving these coastal roads. We had such a good time with him and our guide, Ariana. She gave us great insight with the history of the Amalfi coast. My favorite part of the tour was our ride home when Gianna played Italian folk songs, we sang and dance
A wonderful trip ! We would definitely recommend this tour. Johnny the driver was excellent, he drove well on narrow, bendy streets stopping for us to take memorable photos. The restaurant he recommended was amazing, great views and wonderful Almafi Rose. this trip is a must !
Loved this intimate tour that allowed us to set our own pace and spend more time in locations we enjoyed. The restaurant that was recommended for lunch was fantastic. It was a wonderful day!
It was a wonderful day excursion in a private car in early October that was well worth the fee. Johnnie, our driver was great. Although he wasn't a guide, he pointed out interesting sites and features of this amazing coastline. He also took us to a wonderful restaurant high above Positano that had very simple but amazingly fresh and homemade food. One of the best dining experiences we had in our 3 week stay in Italy. Don't do buses heresplurge on a private car... you won't regret it.
This tour was the absolute highlight of our trip to Sorrento! Giovanni Johnny was wonderful. He spoke great English, was polite, funny and was focused on making sure we had a great day. He was extremely knowledgeable about the area and was very flexible if we wanted to stay in one place a little longer. He was punctual and arrived early to pick us up at the hotel. He took us to a wonderful place for lunch with impeccable food and a stunning view. Driving the winding road back to Sorrento Johnny played the most wonderful music. I will always remember listening to him and my mom sing Italian songs all the way home. It was like something out of a movie. Thank you Johnny for making this truly an unforgettable day that both of us will cherish forever.
If you are planning to visit the Amalfi Coast, you should take this tour. There is nothing that can compare. And if you can, request Giovanni. He made this a truly magical experience! I am definitely going to request him for the same tour on my next trip to Sorrento!
Great day with a very friendly driver, a beautiful drive on the Amalfi coast, highly to recommend
Apart from the bad start when our driver was given the wrong hotel and went to Naples the rest of the tour was very very good very nice driver very good driver and very knowledgeable
Loved this trip! Rosario was very professional and stopped many times along the way so I could take photos of the best scenery. He even acted as our tour guide even though we only hired him as a driver. Rosario was very calm while driving the narrow and busy roads, even when the other drivers on the road were not! He recommended great shops and the restaurant for lunch was the best Italian food we had the whole trip. It was also on the beach with an awesome view and had lemon vines hanging from the trellis along the balcony. I think it was connected to the Hotel Luna. We would definitely recommend him and the villages were amazing!
This was a fabulous day, made extra special by our driver Giovanni who stressed that it was our day and made sure that we saw and did everything we wanted. He arrived promptly at our Sorrento hotel at 9am, and helped us into his very comfortable Mercedes, opening the doors for us each and every time we got in. He spoke English well and told us many things of interest as we headed along the beautiful Amalfi coast road, stopping frequently wherever he knew there were good picture opportunities, before giving us an hour to explore Amalfi itself, time for a coffee and to explore the amazing cathedral.
Then it was on to Ravello, with another hour to look round this charming hilltop town. As we headed back towards Positano we passed a restaurant where Giovanni was hailed by a friend but he explained to him that he wouldn't be stopping that day as we had said we had no plans for lunch and would simply have a quick salad somewhere. As we drove on Giovanni told us the restaurant was one of his favourites, with good food at reasonable prices and a beautiful view. Of course that brought about an instant change of mind on our part! So, somewhat surprised, Giovanni turned the car round and and we enjoyed an excellent lunch of fresh fish, sitting under lemon trees with a glorious view over the Gulf of Salerno.
Then it was on to Positano for a final hour of exploring the narrow, steep streets down to the sea, dipping into many of the all-too tempting shops. While an hour is not long enough to see any of the three towns fully it provided a wonderful taster of each and we look forward to longer, separate visits in future.
Our unscheduled lunch stop had added time on to the day but Giovanni stressed again that he just wanted us to have the best possible experience, and he did not mind extending his working day.
This tour is not cheap but my husband and I both felt it was excellent value. Above all we would like to thank Giovanni, who made our special day so very memorable.
