Nino was our guide today for the hike. He shared lots of great information on the drive to the path. I appreciated the history of the area. The hike is moderate. Some parts of easy while others are hard. Nino was once again very informative on the hike. He pointed out many plants and he climbed a tree for some blackberries that were the best I ever tasted. The views are spectacular and stopping at the Shepard’s House was a highlight and unexpected by me. We ended the hike at a local bar at the entrance for some lemon ice. Put it on your list to try. So refreshing. Nino made this excursion a 10/10.

Great experience. We debated doing this hike on our own, glad we did not. Nino and his son were superb. Nino was a wealth of knowledge about the area, flowers, history, etc. The stop at a hut for lunch was sn added bonus. Trail is not well marked; we encountered many lost tourist. Tour avoids the 1700 steps down from Nicolle and shortage of buses, as well as the need to then take a ferry back to Sorrento.

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

Beautiful scenery, knowledgeable and entertaining guide. Loved the hike.

Great experience, beautiful views Very friendly guide
