Giuglia and Dave are wonderful individuals who welcomed and hosted us even better than we could have imagined. The boat tour is truly beautiful, offering breathtaking views of Mount Vesuvius and the colorful coastline of Positano. You definitely won't be disappointed. In addition to the boat ride itself, this young couple treated us to local delicacies and shared stories about Naples and its history. The boat is very spacious, well-maintained, and clean, not to mention the numerous sun decks and renovated facilities. I would recommend this activity to anyone, regardless of age, including children. The romantic music on the boat, the views, the scent of the sea, and the taste of local wine will stay with me in my memories forever.

One of the most incredible boat tours I have had the pleasure of going on! Julia and Davide were splendid guides and hosts, extremely warm, welcoming and friendly. We learned various interesting facts about the history of Naples and had multiple complementary refreshments - drinks, wine and even Julia’s own Bruschetta. A definite highlight of our trip 😃😃

Superb experience and what a view when we climbed the volcano to the top. You still need acceptable physical strength because the climb is steep and long. But the reward is worth the effort. You should not have a weak stomach because the mini bus moves at a very fast speed. In any case, a must do.

very fun and extremely relaxing, a moment of peace in chaotic Naples

Super nice guys, very kind and helpful! Absolutely worth repeating!
