It was organized perfectly! Very comfortable journey. The lunch was great! Maria our guide-even though it was her first day- she did great! I’m very satisfied! I would definitely do it again. They only drawback is that I wish that we had more free time especially in Amalfi.

Great tour, good guide. Enjoyed time at Sorrento, lemon cello tasting was good, Positano was too busy to really enjoy, lunch was good, unplanned boat tour was added for 12euro which was great. Totally enjoyable
