What people are saying about Amalfi Coast

Fabulous day visiting 2 of Irpinia’s family wineries in the beautiful Avellino area of Campania. Our host/sommelier Guatano was an absolute delight to spend the day with - his knowledge of the area and it’s history, geography, food and wine was mind blowing. We very much enjoyed the conversation with him and had lots of laughs as he was very enthusiastic and entertaining! We enjoyed warm and generous hospitality at both our stops and learned a lot about producing wine in this iconic region (we have a small vineyard in Australia). We would recommend this tour very highly and it is excellent value for money. Grazie!

The tour was amazing! Our driver, Roberto, was the BEST! While it was difficult to understand some of his English, he was polite, thorough, knowledgeable, and friendly. Our Pompeii tour guide was amazing too; she was passionate and friendly and we learned SO MUCH. If you're on the fence on whether to book this tour or not, do it! You won't regret it! The views were amazing and Pompeii was my favorite ruin in Italy.

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.

Marco was such a wonderful guide! We learnt about the history, the local plants, picked up some Italian lingo and some good laughs. Would definitely recommend if you’re looking for a fun experience.

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