What people are saying about Sorrento

This was a wonderful excursion. It was well organized and the staff was excellent. Fun and knowledgeable about the area. The hike itself was ~ 2+ hours, but the views, the stop for lunch on the trail was exceptional. It was a family style long table lunch served by the guides. The actual hike started and and ended in Bomerano and does not go into any surrounding towns. The bus ride from Sorrento to the hike takes a little over an hour each way. Bring euros for lunch! It was a great way to spend the day. Highly recommended.

This was a highlight of our trip! Our guide Nino was excellent - he kept the group together seamlessly as we were all with varying levels of fitness. He also told us about the edible plants and the walking loop was excellent. It is a must-do - easy access from Sorrento and back. The lunch and wine mid-hike were perfect. The views of the coast from this hike were unmatchable. Nothing that you can see otherwise. Just book this tour - you will not regret it!

This hike is amazing. Antonioni and his son Nino were very welcoming and informative. They provided the hiking sticks for free but you need to bring your own water bottle. Keep in mind that It’s quiet a long ride from Sorrento to the starting point of almost an hour but the scenery is nice. It is of medium difficulty which I feel needs to be added to the description. Will definitely do it again.

This was a wonderful experience. Very straightforward getting to the location and the hike was well timed, any later in the day and it would be very difficult. We had a wonderful pit stop at a goat cheese farm which was unexpected but very welcome. Our guide was lovely and funny.

Is amazing experience, our guide franko is very helpful, check how the froup doing frequently and give us a great information about amalfi
