Our guide Paulo was fantastic! He was so knowledgeable about the Amalfi coast and not only provided us with a safe hike but also made sure to give us a little history of the area as well as point out the different herbs, fruits, and vegetables that grow wild on the mountain. We couldn’t have asked for a better experience. Request Paulo…you won’t be disappointed.

Marco was such a wonderful guide! We learnt about the history, the local plants, picked up some Italian lingo and some good laughs. Would definitely recommend if you’re looking for a fun experience.

Vincenzo was a great guide! We learnt a lot about the history behind Positano and the walk was breathtaking
