Traveler Tips

Yes our bus was 10 minutes late for pick-up but that was only because another passenger was at the wrong pick-up location, so bear in mind there are different pick-up points.
There was beer and wine available whenever we wanted along with some snacks!

Fun day overlooking the coast on a boat
alfred_s, Nov 2022
For the most part, the entire day was smooth. Pick up was on time and easy to locate. We met up in front of the starhotels terminus. I was travelling solo for this trip. It was a very brief and scenic drive before arriving to our miniboat. In total, there was about 10 of us the entire day. It was a perfect number as i had an opportunity to meet and bond with a few of them over the course of the day. We took a brief boat ride to sorrento where we switched to another miniboat and captain who took care of us for the day. We were on the boat most of the day enjoying the views & sunshine. Being on a smaller boat with a small group is much more enjoyable and highly recommended for a little extra. Everyone had a chance to sit in both the front and back of the boat. I met people from Tazmania, Romania, US, & Canada. We had snacks and drinks throughout the day. The sandwhich was a little tough to snack on. We made 2 stops along the way and had about an hour in each stop, Amalfi & Positano. You have little time to roam and explore, but just enough time to enjoy a gelato or some food by the coast. maybe soak in the sun and make a few dives. We also got a few opportunities to swim while on our boat rides. At the end, the departure transfer was a bit delayed and scrambled, but for the most part the tour was fun.
Do This Excursion

Please do this experience. It was awesome. I was solo but Captain made everyone feel welcome and encouraged group to enjoy together. The land excursions were solo and were perfect amount of time to see everything. Loved the swimming spot and the drinks on way back
Late and a lot of wasted time
Dave_B, Oct 2022
We started quite late (waiting for people) so had to make some adjustments (some walking, at least an hour standing around doing nothing, and much less time in towns -we only had 60 and 70 min at each place instead of the expected 90 and 120). The guides were very nice but didn’t “guide” much. I would have liked to know more about the places and cultures and history as we boated. The water and views were gorgeous. The bus back was super hot.
Miryam_R, Oct 2022
The ride was so rough. We went so fast that I had to hang on so tight otherwise I’d get tossed around. Such an uncomfortable ride both ways. We were supposed to have drinks and we were not offered anything until very late and it was impossible to enjoy since if you weren’t careful you’d probably even fly off. Would NOT recommend.
Awesome tour.
Michael_F, Oct 2022
Awesome tour on the water. Loved our Captain and tour guide. Loved we got free Limoncello shots at the end of the tour.
Perfect Honeymoon Day Trip
Sean_D, Oct 2022
Unforgettable day along the Sorrento and Amalfi Coasts. After a 35 min bus ride from the meeting point, we met our Captain Giacomo and tour leader Luisa for a full day on the water. The food and drink they provided was great, and the stops in Positano and Amalfi were incredible. Had roughly 75 minutes to explore each location, which is plenty of time for some limoncello. Would highly recommend, and don't forget to tip!
Gorgeous view, excellent...
Gorgeous view, excellent captain on the boat. Food and drinks were great. Time to swim and visit sites in Positano and Amalfi. Excellent tour!
Great tour
Sheila_B, Oct 2022
Great tour beautiful views highly recommend, very organized Captain was very good at controlling the boat from the waves as it was very choppy
Great way to see the Almafi coast
Rachelle_W, Sep 2022
Wonderful and relaxing way to see the Almafi coast! It’s a great tour if you want to get away from the busy city. However, the 2 towns we stopped at were extremely crowded, the allotted time of 1 1/ 2 hr. Was enough for us since it was a little difficult to get around. Our skipper stated that normally he has a hostess with him but she called in sick that day. So he was trying to drive the boat and hand out snacks/drinks at the same time. (Bag of chips and a sandwich, and drinks as we needed them) As well as pointing out some things we were seeing along the way. This was NOT ideal, that being said he did his best and we did enjoy our tour.
So fun!
Caryn_L, Sep 2022
We had such a great time on the boat tour. Our guide and captain were both so fun and helpful. We had plenty of swimming time and free time in Positano and Amalfi.
Jenna_D, Sep 2022
YOU DO NOT WANT TO MISS THIS! It was amazing. Andrea and Tony were so much fun and made the day one to remember. It is truly perfectly planned with enough time at each location leaving swimming stops in between. I was pleasantly shocked with how great the snacks, sandwiches and alcohol on board were! Truly one of the best days ever.
Topless in the Mediterranean!
Marika_U, Aug 2022
I absolutely loved this experience. I am travelling solo so doing tours has been a great way for me to meet and connect with people. Andrea (the tour guide) did an awesome job engaging us, explaining the history, and instructions for the day. The Amalfi coast and Positano were really busy, but I enjoyed swimming in the Mediterranean and Aegean Oceans. Much quieter. I also really loved the little extra treats from the snacks, lunch, champagne, limoncello and cake 😋
Worst tour ever!
christina_g, Aug 2022
I am saddened to even give a poor rating because 2 days prior we had. 5-star experience to Ischia and Procida with the same company. Unfortunately, this tour used an older boat with extreme fumes and black smoke coming from the engine that it made several passengers sick during the trip. 2 passengers did not complete the tour due to becoming extremely ill from the fumes (vomiting and extreme chills); they took a taxi back to their hotel. My friend was vomiting the entire time on the bot from the fumes. There was a lack of concern from the captain, he continued on line nothing was wrong. My friend and I made the best of it with the land excursions to Positano and Amalfi. On the way back to our destination the captain almost hit swimmers in the sea it was terrifying for both us, the passengers, and the family in the water.
A brilliant day out!
Luke_B, Aug 2022
A fantastic way to see the Amalfi Coast. We were picked up from the centre of Naples in a very modern and clean minibus which took us directly to the harbour. From there we boarded the boat and set off to our destinations, at speed! Our hosts were brilliant and gave us a couple of hours at each stop and the chance to swim in the sea to cool off in a couple of coves. Only criticism is that maybe the picnic could have been given to us better, rather than on disembarkation at Amalfi, stopping out at sea with a view to enjoy properly would have been nice, but not detract from the experience at all...absolutely outstanding!

Francesca and Rafaelle were a great team that took care of all of us on the boat. Lots of drinks, snacks, amazing!
Perfect trip along the Amalfi Coast
Marissa_B, Aug 2022
We had the BEST TIME on this tour!!! Our captain and guide were really fun and easy-going, and there were tons of snacks/treats that made the boat extra fun. The views were INCREDIBLE and we felt we had the right amount of time at each stop. I typically get seasick but I was absolutely fine the whole day. Couldn’t recommend more!!
A blast!
Gilbert_G, Jul 2022
Captain and First Mate were fantastic. Comfort and enjoyment of the passengers was their top priority.
Amazing way to see the Amalfi Coast
Nick_N, Jul 2022
Awesome tour!! Would recommend. Lu and his crew did the best job to accommodate us throughout our day.
Must do!
Tamara_T, Jul 2022
We had an amazing time. Our tour guide, Lu, was very attentive and made sure everyone was having a good time. A must do, highly recommend 👍🏻👍🏻
The best boat tour!
Jocelyn_L, Jul 2022
This was my favorite part of my trip! It was very hot, so our tour decided to spend more time in the water rather than on land. It was also my birthday, and the guides made my day extra special. They offered a lot of drinks, food, baked goods, and a charging station.
