We had a fantastic time visiting the Amalfi Coast on this tour. Our driver Nino was fantastic and really made the tour special. We considered taking buses or different options to visit the cities but now that we've completed the tour, I definitely feel that this was the best option given the heat, tour and information given by our guide and it was as relaxing as it could be.

Bellissimo tour , soprattutto il giro in barca ad Amalfi , pranzo con una vista magnifica , il tutto accompagnato un fantastico autista Remigio, e la nostra guida Connie che oltre ad essere molto preparata è anche molto simpatica!

This tour was so fun and involved quite a bit of swimming at different points around Capri. You don't stop at the island but get to circle the whole thing. There are drinks and food included but bring your own mask and snorkel!

Excellent tour guide. Very funny, engaging and knowledgeable. We'd have wandered aimlessly (and probably got lost) had we been on our own. You can stay as long as you like to see more after the tour is finished which was great.

It was all so nice! The captain and the skipper went above and beyond for all of us. Thoroughly enjoyed the service provided onboard and prior.
