Traveler Tips

Definitely worth the expense and the best way to see the stunning Amalfi coast!
Pick-up and drop-off in comfortable minibuses; the boat itself looked well-maintained, felt safe and was big enough for the crowd of people that joined the tour.
A superb way to visit this coast and such a great perspective to take in the beauty of the shoreline!

It was a great trip to see the Amalfi Coast and visit Amalfi & Positano. The trip was definitely worth what you paid. We saw loads of sites and got to spend a few hours in each place. Would definitely recommend it.
Beautiful way to experience both cities in one day.
Cheryl_F, Oct 2022
The boat was comfortable and tour guide informative. But we spent too much time in Amalfi and too little time in Positano. There was much more to do in Positano. More shopping. More dining options. We wish we had 3 hours in Positano and 1.5 hours in Amalfi.
Boat Trip to Amalfi and Positano
Sbakerphone, Oct 2022
We should have gone on the Wednesday for this trip but the weather (extreme thunder and lightning) was dreadful. We decided to get picked up and still go but when we arrived at Nerano we didn’t feel that the trip on the boat would have been safe so we decided to find our own way back to Sorrento. After emailing the company we were told we could go the next day, they were completely fine with moving us as he said the safety of the guests and crew were their priority. So the trip was amazing, we would recommend it completely. Giuseppe was really informative. Check the weather before you go. It’s like everything when the sunshine’s every thing looks better. For me I preferred Positano and my husband preferred Amalfi.
Great way to see the Amalfi coast.

Best way to view the Amalfi coast. Stop offs at Amalfi and Positano were just the right length of time.

Great tour including narrated boat tour, friendly and prompt guides. Beautiful way to view the coast and visit Positono and Amalfi for the day.
Great experience!
Carol_S, Oct 2022
We had such a great time on this tour. Our boat guide Giuseppe was very informative with a fun attitude, not at all boring. His recommendation to take the extra trip to the emerald grotto was very appreciated as it was spectacular! Such a great day.
Gorgeous Views!
Judith_M, Oct 2022
We had a wonderful day traveling through the adorable Italian towns of Amalfi and Positano! Our Captain Carlo & tour guide Guisseppe were great! very informative and kept us on time all day. We would definitely recommend this tour!!!!
Excellent day out
Guy_E, Sep 2022
This was exactly what we wanted. A nice day out with a stop off at amalfi & positano. We had a coach trip to the boat picking people up along the way. We had time in amalfi which gave us time to have lunch and a little shop. We then had a short stop in positano where we had a drink and sat on the beach (be aware the beach is like being sat on a bag of gravel). On the return journey after the 1st stop off we had a different crew and a tour guide which gave us some history of it all which was good plus she had a little sing song 🎵. Overall I would definitely recommend this
Amazing Boat Tour for Amalfi
Yangsup_S, Sep 2022
Looking over Amalfi and Positano coast line from boat is amazing look. It is more convenient than riding a car. Several hours’ free time gives ample time to do whatever, dining, shopping, beach activities.
Best way to experience the Amalfi Coast
Carlos_C, Sep 2022
Amazing excursion! We got to experience the Amalfi coast by sea, which beats having to deal with the insane driving. The staff was very friendly and entertaining. Our guide, Carolina, even sang for us. If you are looking for the Amalfi experience without a full history lesson, yet informative and helpful comments from pleasant guides, this one is for you!
Great way to see the Amalfi coast
Claire_F, Sep 2022
I had a great day on this tour, well organised and the guide gave you a lot of useful information on the boat ride to the towns. For me it was a great way to see these 2 lovely towns and having free time in both places to explore. Would recommend.
Affordable & Convenient way to explore Amalfi Coast.
Dan_Z, Aug 2022
I would recommend for those that would like transportation and enjoy exploring on your own. It provided shuttle transport from Sorrento to port in Nerano (about ~30ish min drive) and ferry service to Amalfi then Positano. It allowed free time in both Towns about 3hrs in Amalfi and 2hrs in Positano. My wife and I both loved our time spent in the towns - especially tossing a towel on tiny beaches and enjoying the scenery & blue waters. The ferry did provide some commentary on our rides on what we were seeing as well. If you are looking for affordable and convenient way to see/enjoy time in Amalfi Coast from Sorrento, I would recommend.
Great tour but reminded me more of a ferry then a tour
Alexandra_K, Aug 2022
It was a great tour, very lovely staff but the tour itself reminded me of a ferry service instead of a tour because of all the people on the boat. Would recommend but I would let them k ow about the amount of people first.
Must sign up for this!
jess_m, Aug 2022
Very knowledgeable tour guide with good sense of humour! Very punctual too. Just enough alone time at each location to explore and swim!
False advertising.
Francesco_P, Aug 2022
DO NOT book a tour. This is false advertising. A tour is when a guide, or someone else, provides you with SOME information of the area you are “touring.” This is not it; in fact, all you are getting is a ride to the Amalfi Coast with a few visuals of big rocks and mountains along the way. Once you arrive to the 2 places they bring you, you’re left on your own. I hope you know the area or have arranged for transportation because otherwise you’re screwed. It was the most expensive ferry ride I’ve ever paid for. But definitely not a “tour” like they advertise. Also, Alessandro from the tour agency is a trickster and relies on his advertisement saying you have “free time” once you arrive to the locations. Ladies and gentlemen, if you are NOT from the area, which many of us aren’t since we are booking this “tour”, how can one have free time to do what they want if they have no idea where to go, what to do, what’s there, how to get there, etc. Then he told me he would look into it but never did and basically blew me off. Total disrespect and not to be trusted. This place is all about the money and they’ll get it any way they have to. Stay away.
Not a boat - you’re on a charter.
Aine_W, Jul 2022
To be honest, I felt a little scammed by this booking. The “boat” was the public charter boat, there was absolutely no opportunity to swim and the refreshments promised to be available for purchase were never offered. Charter isn’t stated anywhere in the listing.
Busy and Expensive, but delivered.
Steve_W, Jul 2022
So the trip to Amlafi and Positano from Sorrento wasn't cheap Euro 70 each. But then nothing in that region was cheap this year! Maybe it is always expensive. We were heared onto a minibus near(ish) our hotel (not really our hotel at all, but never mind). Then transferred to another little bus and driven to Navano on the other side of he peninsula, where more horads joined the tour! Navano looked nice by the way. The boat was a good size, and Carolina the guide spoke well enthusiastically and was fun. Over all the trip was fine on a very hot day, but we hadn't realized how busy it would be
Great day out.
Diana_W, Jul 2022
I have been to the Amalfi Coast many times and I am familiar with it, but I saw and learned new things on this trip.
