This was the highlight of our entire trip in Italy!! Words can’t describe how amazing this private boat tour experience was along the Amalfi coast. Our boat captain Andrea let us plan the day as we pleased and gave us excellent recommendations. We started out in Positano admiring the views then got to have a private beach experience snorkelling with tons of fish. Then into Nerano where we had the best seafood at a restaurant on the water. We love to swim and snorkel and he took us to many amazing hidden gems. Truly a once in a life time experience! Huge shoutout to Andrea- thank you so much for the most amazing day we could’ve wished for, you were the best!

Our captain(Adrian I believe) was wonderful and an excellent driver considering the boat traffic he had to maneuver through! He made reservations for us on Capri for lunch and made sure we got to where we needed to be! Great communicator and a lovely ride…would recommend!

Renzo was a great skipper and tour guide. Very friendly and knowledgeable. Highly recommend this excursion. We dined for lunch at TORRE SARACENA in Marina Piccolo. The walk up to town was lots of steps but totally worth it.

The guide was very informative. The overall trip was very good. Boat was as good as new.

Amazing trip, great service. Would highly recommend
