The Amalfi coast is one of the most beautiful sceneries and must be in our top 10 from around the world. The trip had 3 visits to the towns and a lunch. The stops are a little limited by time but as there are 3 and a lunch stop it would be too long a day if they were any longer. You can see the highlights of the towns in the time but don’t dawdle. We did an extra boat trip along Amalfi which was excellent and so pleased we added this. Again our guide was informative but not as essential on this type of trip but always very handy to ask key questions. The drive along the roads can be a little startling for the more nervous of passengers.

Beautiful sceneries. The best is the boat ride (which is extra) to see the coastline from another perspective! The couple of stops are at shopping areas. kudos to the driver barreling down the winding narrow roads! Hope you don’t get carsick.

Absolutely wonderful. Anna was amazing and a great commentator throughout the trip. Everything was organized and planned in a way that didn’t seem too overwhelming.

Hugo the guide pointed out all the must see places. For a first time visitor, that is great!

It was a great tour, we enjoyed a lot. Special thanks to Serena, our guide and Jovani.
