Embark on a private boat excursion from Praiano that will take you through our favorite spots along the heart of the Amalfi Coastline. The coast is made of limestone which means that is is full of enchanting sea caves that you can explore, rock formations, rocky inlets and of course the famous Fiord in Furore.

Overall rating

4.5
(754 reviews)

This was a well organized bus and ferry service, with some added benefits. It was possible to buy drinks on the ferry and the captain pointed out some places on the way and told us a little. We stayed long enough in both places. All in all a good experience, but very hard benches on the ferry. Be on time for departure, because the ferry doesn't wait!

We loved the tour, it lasted a long time, the pick-up and transport service was very good. Despite knowing what the itinerary would be like, after visiting Positano and Amalfi, I think it would be better if the longer stay was in Positano, and not in Amalfi, as Positano has much more to be explored.

Everything was on time and the guides were very customer-oriented. There was a good amount of information. Information about the type and size of the boat in advance would have been helpful.

A great getaway to discover the Amalfi Coast, small group on the boat which is perfect

Very good organized trip. Rey kept the schedule to the minute.
