OMG this was worth every penny. The guides were amazing the food and snacks were good and the atmosphere brilliant. Having a small group of people created a good atmosphere and enjoyed each other’s company. The boat even turned round to collect someone’s €5 cap when it flew off. Amalfi and positano are beautiful and definitely worth seeing from the sea to experience the full scale of the view. I cannot imagine that this can be seen from the road and definitely I didn’t feel the full experience of it on land. The swimming stops were fun and the trip back to sorrento was a thrilling ride with bumps and splashes that had us all laughing

Of our whole Italian vacation to date, from Bologna through Rome to Sorrento, this was the best day ever. Beautiful ports of call, great captain and tour guide, and just enough time in each spot. A fantastic day,

Highly recommended experience! I am Italian from Sicily and can guarantee you it worth the price. Quality services, professionalism and very friendly atmosphere and attitude. Go for it without hesitations!

Very nice experience. Small group of 8 people allowing to sympathize easily. Frequent stops for swimming. Seeing the coast from the sea allows you to better appreciate it. Friendly and attentive crew. A vj

It was a beautiful day. Appreciating the coast from the sea is wonderful.
