The Amalfi coast is beautiful, but it's best experienced by boat. My wife and I were visiting for our honeymoon and had the best time meeting new friends from around the world. Rafa was a fantastic guide, he took us town by town from Amalfi to Positano exploring highlights both natural and built. Rafa's experience in the area really showed as he described local features like grottos, famous businesses and hotels. The two stops for swimming and snorkeling were a great way to break up the boat tour. We enjoyed food and snacks along the way. I can't recommend this tour enough! Support a local and his new business while getting to know the Amalfi coast!

What people are saying about Praiano
Do not think twice - book this tour. The absolute best way to experience the Amalfi coast is from a boat in an intimate setting & that is exactly what this experience allows. Raphael was our captain: charming, fun, polite, and so knowledgeable about the area. The tour includes two stops for swimming/snorkeling and refreshments while on the water (Raphael had a full assortment of beverages & fresh cantaloupe)! Absolutely the highlight of our time in Amalfi and quite possibly our entire Italy trip.
It was a nice trip with few people (5). Rafael the tour guide and captain of the boat, he did a fantastic job in explaining the essence of important locations along the trip. And also provided refreshments throught the trip. Worth for the money.
Raphael ist the best Guide, we had a very good day with him on the Boat. Would recomend the Tour every one!
