We did this tour at the end of our holiday, it was brilliant, a wonderful finish to our Italian holiday. We were picked up in Naples, by bus and taken to the boat, everything was smooth. The scenery was beautiful, we had time to go into the towns of Amalfi and Positano. They stopped the boat for us to go swimming it was brilliant. Cannot thank the staff of “you know” enough. There was snacks and drinks through out the day and a large baguette for lunch. This was great value and worth every euro

Our guide Paulo was fantastic! He was so knowledgeable about the Amalfi coast and not only provided us with a safe hike but also made sure to give us a little history of the area as well as point out the different herbs, fruits, and vegetables that grow wild on the mountain. We couldn’t have asked for a better experience. Request Paulo…you won’t be disappointed.

We had an amazing time with The Antonino’s our guide and boat captain! Our time on the boat was beautiful, relaxing and informative, we couldn’t of asked for better :)

Vincenzo was a great guide! We learnt a lot about the history behind Positano and the walk was breathtaking

Fantastic!! Everything from the meeting point details to the hike and back was well organized.
