What To Expect

Leave your Naples hotel, the cruise port, or the station at 8:30am. You’ll then leave the city and travel to the Amalfi Coast, the UNESCO-listed stunner of the Campania region.

Step out of your transport for a stroll through the chic town of Positano, and use your hour of free time to wander the streets, admiring its pastel-toned houses, stacked into the cliffs.

Continue to Amalfi, the ancient maritime superpower, and check out its Cathedral of St. Andrew during two hours of free time. Stop for lunch by the marina, and, if you want to see the sights from the water, then hop on a boat for a 30-minute cruise. The boat ride and food are at your own expense.

Finally, you’ll travel to the hilltop town of Ravello. The highest town on the Amalfi Coast, Ravello is known for its views. Soak up the panoramas from Villa Rufolo’s landscaped gardens and the much-loved terrace at Villa Cimbrone.

Return from Ravello in the afternoon, and finish your day trip with a drop-off at the start point in Naples around 5pm.

Traveler Tips

During September it is very crowded in and along the coast so we had quite a bit of traffic and crowds in the areas we visited.
Best way to see the Amalfi Coast at your own pace.

The only way to see the Almafi Coast!! Ask for Lino.
Annekwolter, Nov 2022
What a memorable experience we had with Lino our driver!! From the moment he picked us up at the port in his new Mercedes Town Car (only thing missing were massaging seats) and a fresh bottle of water. We were off to the Amalfi coast and all of the wonderful sights to behold. Lino gave us a lot of history and description of the area in his fluent English as we drove out of the city. As we ascended, Lino stopped at many points for us to get out and take photos of the coast. In Conca Dei Marini he inquired if we would like to stop at pottery factory and see a grotto. How could we pass either of those experiences up? On to Almafi where we stopped for lunch, and then we began our way back to the ship port. It was a wonderful tour and for anyone looking into this vs. what your ship is offering, this is the only way to see the Almafi Coast - big tour bus rides are not going to do the Almafi Coast justice, and you certainly won’t be as comfortable or have the possibility of being as lucky as we were to have such a wonderful driver/tour guide as Lino.
Great Tour

Probably the best tour. Perfect to be in a vehicle that can pull off to get great images. Great driver
Perfect Amalfi Coast Private Tour
Sherry_T, Sep 2022
My husband and I were greeted at our cruise port by Vincenzo picking us up in his black Mercedes. He customized our time to see Ravello. Amalfi, Positano and Sorrento. He made us a reservation for a wonderful lunch in Sorrento. Our favorite place was Ravello, quiet and quaint! Along our tour he provided interesting facts and stopped for photos in perfect spots. We highly recommend this tour and were very pleased!
Fantastic tour!

The private tour was amazing. Andreas was extremely kind, professional, and helpful. He ensured every need was met! He was on time, courteous, patient, and knew where to find the best views for pictures.
Alvaro_O, Aug 2022
Amazing. Our driver was the best and knowledgeable driver you could ever have, we got to know little by little about every single corner of the coast. It was just unforgettable.
Driver to explore the Amalfi Coast
Dave_W, Jul 2022
Enjoyable day to see/visit the Amalfi Coast during a cruise stop. The driver met us in the port of Naples and drove us to Sorrento, Positano and Amalfi with time in each city. We had lunch at Hotel Costa Diva that we paid for (expensive) and it appeared everyone at the restaurant was with a driver. The driver was professional and efficient. Only a driver - no touring or narration. He would kindly answer questions. I would give this a 5 star review if the driver was more engaging.
We had the most wonderful...
Tania_R, Jul 2022
We had the most wonderful time!!! Our driver and guide Paolo was very knowledgeable, friendly and accommodating! Highly recommend him to anyone looking to spend a memorable day touring Amalfi!!!
Private van tour to Positano
mandi_w, Jul 2022
We arrived at our designated meeting spot at 9am. The driver greeted us and asked how many ppl in our group. (I questioned this because I clearly had booked for 8) He said he only saw the booking for 4 ppl. Long story short, he made some calls and 25 mins later a larger van came to get us. We had a 10:30 boat tour we arrived late to. However, the second driver was very kind and let us stay a little longer than planned, so in the end it worked out. My advice - contact the tour with ALL the info and include meeting point, time, people and duration. The first driver blamed Viator for the mess up.
Perfect getaway
Yvette_F, Jul 2022
We arrived on a cruise ship in Naples and although we knew how long it would take us to go to the Amalfi Coast, we decided to take risks and take that trip to one of our favorite destinations. Our guide Marina was amazing. She took us to the Limoncello factory, told us about the local history as well as the mountains of milk. It made us feel like family and we felt free to talk as if we were old friends. Although a lot of time is lost in the car, the vehicle was extremely comfortable and we were able to enjoy the panoramic views of the Amalfi coast. It was one of my best days in Italy and all thanks to our guide.
Perfect Amalfi Coast Experience
Carla_G, Jun 2022
Luigi was the most amazing tour guide on our entire trip. Extremely knowledgeable and made the trip educational. Perfect visit of the Amalfi coast. Highly recommend this tour and especially Luigi as a tour guide.
Great for people coming from a cruise
Caroline_G, May 2022
Our driver Mario was amazing and informative. 100% recommend the excursion to people who are arriving in this area from a cruise. Wish we had more time to stay in each location
Great Tour of the Amalfi Coast
Linda_W, Oct 2019
Our guide Pepe was very very good! Our group of 7 could not have enjoyed this tour more. Pepe was super friendly, knowledgeable about the area and very accommodating. He listened to our wishes and reacted positively, which contributed to an amazing tour.
A Beautiful Day on the Amalfi Coast
Mike_W, Oct 2019
What a great trip with Fabio! We felt very safe driving with him, and he provided us with so many insights into the region. He was our personal driver, paparazzi, and now friend! Best way to see the Amalfi Coast at your own pace. We had an hour each at Positano, Sorrento and Amalfi. We highly recommend this trip and if you can get Fabio....absolutely do it! Well worth the money!
Great Tour Guide, Crowded Coast!
heatherlewitt, Oct 2019
We visited in mid-September and scheduled this tour as a shore excursion from our Cruise ship. Our driver and tour guide Pino was lovely and helpful and the coast is absolutely beautiful. We had a good amount of time in Positano, Amalfi and Ravello. During September it is very crowded in and along the coast so we had quite a bit of traffic and crowds in the areas we visited. If I were to do again I'd book to do this in either April or October when the crowds are less.
Driver did not speak English
Resort662657, Oct 2019
The Car driver did not speak English so could not explain what we were seeing. All we did was shop in 3 different towns. There was a lot of traffic and driving the coast is very scary with aggressive driving. The coast is beautiful and lots of leather goods and cafes in the towns. Next time I would hop on a tour bus with an English speaking guide.
Unvergesslicher Ausflug mit Domenico und Serena!
Karin_E, May 2022
Die Flexibilität der Reiseführerin Serena und des Fahrers Domenico war außerordentlich. Sie waren sehr pünktlich, äußerst freundlich, enthusiastisch, herzlich und professionell. Wir haben viel interessante Informationen und Geheimtipps erhalten. Es war ein rundum gelungener Ausflug, der uns positiv in Erinnerung bleiben wird.
Surtout pas hors saison
Christelle_G, Mar 2022
Chauffeur Maxime très agréable qui maîtrise bien le français. En revanche quel dommage de nous avoir amené dans un restaurant avec lequel il a des accords! Restaurant dans un coin perdu, une pizzeria sans pizza, bref plus que mauvais et surtout pas digne de la cuisine napolitaine et italienne en général. Par ailleurs, la saison n’ayant pas débuté il n’y a aucun intérêt : magasins fermés à 90%, cathédrale également, bref aucune animation c’est triste. Pour résumer grande déception, excursion très cher payée, on ne s’attendait à mieux. Il faudrait informer les clients et faire preuve d’honnêteté sur la période creuse ou tout simplement ne pas proposer l’excursion en hiver.
excursion idéale pour découvrir la belle côte amalfitaine avec chauffeur guide
Catherine_B, Sep 2021
notre chauffeur Massimo nous a accompagné toute la journée et nous a fait découvrir la côte amalfitaine dans un véhicule confortable et en toute sécurité. Très attentionné , Massimo nous a donné de nombreuses explications , nous a proposé un excellent restaurant vue sur la mer , nous a permis d'admirer et de photographier des points de vue magnifiques, de visiter la cathédrale d'Amalfi etc...
