Well organized trip with wonderful guide. Met at train station for comfortable 1 1/2 trip to Salerno in high-speed , clean , comfortable modern train . Then walked over to marina for ferry ride to Amalfi with wonderful views of the coast . Once there up to the lemon grove for the limoncello tasting . About 200 steps but worth it for the views and the limoncello demonstration and tasting . Mauro is very knowledgeable about the area’s history and we did a brief walking tour of the town then plenty of time for shopping and strolling . Back on the ferry to Positano for more great coastal views and wonderful lunch at Chez Black . Mauro gave us great advice on sights , shopping , and eating places and they were spot on . After lunch plenty of time for shopping , gelato , and people watching . Would really recommend this ferry option . The towns look amazing from the water and are relatively short rides from town to town and with a guide like Mauro makes it even better. Thank you Mauro !

We had a great time for it being the first time we’ve done a city tour! We were in a large group, but we broke up and Franceska was our guide. She was wonderful. Very knowledgeable and caring. She gave great instruction and also made sure everyone got an opportunity to spend their time experiencing each location. Our favorite part was the boat ride itself. Though nothing out of the ordinary, just the views were breathtaking.

Wonderful trip so many beautiful places to see and very convenient to book! Loved it all

Beautiful views, it is worth knowing this beautiful city at night.

The boat was on time. The food and wine was great.
