What To Expect

Craft your own travel itinerary along the Amalfi Coast without worrying about the logistics on this private day trip. Departing from Sorrento with your own personal driver, explore Positano, Ravello and Amalfi at your leisure, each beloved for their stunning views of the coast, colorful architecture and small-town charm.

Check out the Itinerary section for more information on each of the towns.


The charm of The villages along the Amalfi Coast lies not only in the towns themselves, but also in their history and their rich legacy of fine churches, villas and monasteries. You’ll travel through these towns on a day trip in a private car, and you can tell your driver how long you wish to stay in each place. Sorrento with its cliff-top position overlooking the Mediterranean Sea, bustling port, picturesque bays and panoramic views of the Amalfi Coast and surrounding hills, Sorrento has been a favorite resort since Roman times. Positano sits in a splendid panoramic position on one of the most beautiful stretches of coastline. Its enchanting town center of delightful, pastel-hued houses surrounds the parish church of Santa Maria Assunta. Its laneways are lined with quaint, colorful shops and its numerous beaches are world-famous.

Traveler Tips

However, do keep in mind that this tour is fast-paced, packed in with a lot and with a considerable amount of walking to be done- as the core areas of Ravello, Amalfi and Positano only allow pedestrian access.

Unforgettable experience!
Gayatri_D, Jun 2022
Ricardo was very efficient, courteous, humorous and was very familiar with the entire region. He is an excellent driver and communicated well enough in English. He even sang and kept us entertained! All in all, it was a relaxing drive through the most spectacular and glorious views of the sea, hills and the coastline!
We had a wonderful customer experience thanks to our guide David . He showed us beautiful places where only the locals

Try a different tour.

This was a very disappointing experience. The entire day was very rushed and we had so little time at each place. I had really looked forward to shopping in Ravello which was a more quiet lovely place with great ceramics shops. Since the traffic was heavy, the driver only gave us 40 minutes in Ravello, 60 minutes at the other two towns. In hindsight, I would have asked him to let us have two hours in Ravello so we could have lunch. Instead he offered and made reservations at a restaurant overlooking the coast which was quite expensive. It was nice he did that for us but he didn’t ask us how we wanted to spend our time. He just told us what we were doing. The driver did not speak much English and we definitely had a communication barrier.
Great way to see the Amalfi Coast in one day!
Anne_L, May 2022
We had a wonderful day! Serena (tour guide) was awesome and very knowledgeable and Ricardo (our driver) was the best! We felt very safe with him behind the wheel!
Highly Recommended
Michael_G, Jul 2021
The tour was amazing. As other reviews say, you are in the car a lot but the views are stunning as you go. It’s a twisty mountain road and there is a lot to see in just one day. So set your expectations accordingly. Unlike others, we did have flexibility in our schedule but once again expect that you have 8 hours to work with overall. Our driver and guide were great!

Good overview of the area, however felt they rushed us a bit , Appreciative of the amount to cover. And all the parking limits only 1 hour . Asked if we were happy for them to book a restaurant for lunch, said ok, as long a reasonable price, as we have 3 children. Venue was nice, bit not very practical with minimum choices, and restaurant prices. They said all of Amalfi was expensive , however Would have preferred to have lunch at Amalfi, in piazza, where there was a large choice. Tour guide Julia and driver Erico were pretty good though.
Views were amazing.
Laura_D, Aug 2018
Our driver was wonderful but there was so much traffic and crowds and we weren't as prepared as we could have been. We should have brought bathing suits and change of clothing but we weren't sure where we'd be able to do that. Because of the traffic we spent more time in the car than on land. We stopped at a beautiful place for lunch although a bit pricey (recommended by our driver).

If you're in Naples or Sorrento for a few days, this tour is perfect because you have the opportunity to see much within the limited time frame that you have. Also since this is a private tour, you can choose the time you wish to be collected from your Hotel by your driver and guide. However, do keep in mind that this tour is fast-paced, packed in with a lot and with a considerable amount of walking to be done- as the core areas of Ravello, Amalfi and Positano only allow pedestrian access. Plus with Positano being cut into a cliff, it's a lot of uphill and downhill, in sometimes very narrow areas. Nevertheless, there is literally no tour that I encountered that offered the opportunity to visit all the 3 towns in one day, which is why I readily opted for this one. Our experienced and jovial driver, Eric, and affable guide, Alex, fetched us from our Sorrento hotel and en route to the coastal highway, the latter explained the day's itinerary to us and told us the history of the 3 towns we were going to visit. We would visit the mountaneous Ravello first, as the drive up to it would offer spectacular coastal and mountain views, plus take us through many interesting towns en route, next we would drive right down to the coast to visit Amalfi and save Positano for the end of our tour! Everything sounded great and it was! We stopped many times en route to Ravello to take beautiful photographs, we also visited a reputed ceramic store and picked up interesting souvenirs. Ravello per se, is a small mountain encased town, but it's beauty lies in it being ensconed in nature. It is also involved with several music festivals. The drive down to Amalfi offered us very beautiful views as well. Arriving at Amalfi from lofty Ravello seemed unsual because it's exactly the opposite of Ravello- right at the level of the sea. There are many boat rides to be taken here, a nice beach, an interesting Cathedral to visit, delicious gelato to be savoured and fresh seafood take aways to be had in paper cones- also as Alex explained, the gentleman who invented the compass was from Amalfi. Next it was onwards to Positano. One of the most popular, photogenic, busiest and hardest to maneouver towns- but, the most interesting. Full of unique art galleries, stores, boutique hotels, restaurants, an iconic church- despite travelling the entire day, we still had the energy to explore with Alex by our side! Maybe it was the famous Amalfi gelato that pepped us up! Make sure you try delicious lemon flavoured shaved ice granita enroute to/fro the towns or at Positano, try the region's famous Lacryma Christi Tears of Christ red wine and Amalfi's famed gelato and fresh seafood in a cone. If you would like to make the most of your time and visit these 3 unique towns all in one day-this is the tour for you! Felicia Variava Albert, Managing Director, Blaze Tours and Travels Pvt.

Wonderful, wonderful trip, a trip...
Richard_M, Jul 2018
Wonderful, wonderful trip, a trip I've always wanted to do, there were 6 of us and we looked at the cost of going on a coach trip or paying the bit extra and going in our own car/van privately. Are we all pleased we decided to go for the private hire van. it was a great day out. The van arrived promptly I had an email the night before to confirm they were coming .. Our driver CIRO was extremely knowledgable regarding routes, weather, crowds, best places to drop off and pick up, how long we would need, when would we like to eat if at all , what did we want to see so as he could fit it in...he was great and always very polite and professional. Here is a good Positano he could have dropped us straight in the car park but he didn't,he stopped at the top of town by some old steps , he told us to walk down the steps and under the arch and we did as we were told , he then shouted over the wall and pointed which way to go.. again we did as we were told...then we saw the marvellous view of Positano that you see in all the holiday brochures. We have loads of wonderful pictures from that vantage point and we would have missed this sight had we been on a coach trip or with a driver that didn't care. Thoroughly recommend this company and it's excellent value for money.
Amazing tour of a beautiful area
Laura_S, Jun 2018
Alex and Gio picked us up promptly at 9:15am. They were wonderful! Alex’s English was perfect and his knowledge of all the different areas along the Amalfi Coast was great! He allowed us to customize the tour as we wanted, made sure we had lots of amazing photos and recommended a wonderful place to eat lunch overlooking the Mediterranean Sea. Amazing experience!!!

We usually don't do private drives, but wow this was worth every penny. The driver, Giovani was really great, knowledgeable and spoke English well. If we wanted to stop for any reason, he was very helpful and accommodating. Plus while driving he was happy to teach us some Italian, while we taught him some English words. Highly recommend the tour!

Karen T, Oct 2017
Our guide was very congenial but had very little flexibility. I suggested we might want to visit some places other than the city centers but he ignored that suggestion. It would have been much cheaper and much the same to have taken a small group tour. In Italy there is a significant difference between a driver and a guide. Within the confines of his job our driver did a good job. And he took us to a very nice family owned restaurant outside of town. The traffic was horrible and there was not much to do but shop. Although the views are amazing I would probably have skipped this tour if I had known it was mostly for shopping.

Pepe Is the best driver on the Amalfi Coast! Traffic was horrific but he made the trip relaxing, beautiful, and fun! He picked us up on time and took us to Sorrento, Positano, Amalfi, and Ravello. He gave us great tips on what to do, including a magical place for lunch! Bravo Pepe!

One of our best tours on our 30-day trip. Well worth the cost and the only way to see the Amalfi Coast. We had a good driver and also an excellent guide. That is a must for an enjoyable day of touring.

Fantastic day out with Mario. He took control of the day, plenty of stops for drinks and the loo. He was relaxed and a fantastic guide to have for our day out on the Amalfi coast. We can not thank him and his firm enough. If your thinking of investing you should just do it, make sure you give him a big tip, not that he expects, just appriciates

Wonderful tour. Guide was very knowledgeable and accommodating. Only negative was the fact that there was not enough time to visit each town, but we got the flavor of the entire Amalfi coast.

Mitchell A, Jul 2017
Great tour of the Amalfi Coast! Our driver was friendly, from the area and spoke English flawlessly. He picked us up at our hotel in Sorrento and drove to Ravello where he let us out to explore for an hour. From there we started back on the winding roads through Amalfi, where he dropped us off to look around. Lunch was next and we invited him to join us and take us to a favorite restaurant if his, Locanda Costa Diva. Amazing fresh seafood restaurant perched on the Bay of Naples! After lunch we went to Positano and again spent time looking around town before heading back o Sorrento. A totally enjoyable day, no worries about driving the Amalfi Drive, or parking impossible at each stop. Could not have been better!
We absolutely loved this day out...
Rosemary D, Jul 2017
We absolutely loved this day out. Our guide was wonderful and we got to hear and see more of the Amalfi than if we had tried on our own. Enjoyed all of our stops and time in the cities.
