This was a great way to see Postiano, Amalfi and Ravello all in 1 day from Sorrento. The journeys were so smooth , the mini coach ride from Sorrento to Positano is beautiful you drive along the famous roads and you even get to stop to take pics at the most breathtaking sights. A decent amount of time in Positano then we got a ferry to Amalfi which was also amazing to sail along the amalfi coast , once we got to Amalfi we got another speedboat to see sights along the coast only visible by boat like the ‘elephants kissing’ after that a gorgeous ride to Ravello and another beautiful location with gardens and panaramic views easy to see why it’s such a popular wedding location. Ravello was probably my favourite, it’s like stuck in time. Giovanni was our mini coach driver and he was really great we felt safe , Lisa was a great tour guide very friendly and helpful. So happy we done this, a great day.

An early start but well worth it to tour this area. The Amalfi coast was stunning and enroute we stopped at a Limoncello production factory with sampling and gift shop. There was also a breakfast stop/comfort break beforehand. Many hairpin bends took us to Positano which was a quick hour or so before boarding the bus again. There isn’t long here but you have time to see the beach/shop/eat. Pompei was very interesting and been on my bucket list for years. Totally fulfilled my expectations, though to cover it all you need a lot longer. The guides were all good and it was value for money.

The highlight of our trip were the guides, Rob (local) and Vincenzo (Pompeii)! A lot of walking but totally worth it and mind blowing the size of Pompeii! Take an umbrella, although we luckily missed the rain (: Positano was beautiful, but quite expensive, which we did expect. The bus had good aircon and appropriate stops. It has no wifi though, so be prepared! Departure is from a very good location. Antonio, the bus driver, was a real champion!

Luciana was amazing. She was knowledgeable, charming, and a joy to be with. We loved her insights to the area and her sharing stories of her and her family’s history. It brought alive the vibrancy of the area. The walk was well paced and we saw parts of Positano that are off the beaten path. We also loved the archeological tour. It was so well done and added to the intrigue of Positano. Grazie

La guida Ornella è stata fantastica e Sabatino l’autista un grande nella guida! Puntuale in tutto dal pick up point alle diverse tappe! Se posso consigliare non vorrei aver fatto il giro opzionale in barca perché non ne vale la pena, meglio restare a mangiare qualcosa in più ad Amalfi.
