We had been wanting to hike this trail since our last visit in 2019, but the logistics all seemed a little unpredictable. And this partial day trip/tour was the perfect solution. The hike did a loop from Bomerano towards Nocelle back to Bomerano, taking the upper trail out (for some spectacular views) and the lower trail back. Some folks on our tour split with us at the halfway point and continued on to Nocelle and Positano and planned to take the boat back. Giovanni was a terrific leader for the group, providing just the right amount of information about the region with the a great sense of humor. Giovanni set a comfortable pace for all, although some found it more rigorous than anticipated and the group is driven a bit by the slowest hikers. It took close to two hours to get to our starting point (lots of traffic departing Sorrento), and about an hour back - so our day trip was closer to 7 hours than 5. There were more people hiking the trail than I anticipated (even in Octobe

I was extremely nervous beforehand because I am afraid of heights. Nino and his son are extremely kind and friendly which began to set me at ease. The hike started slow with frequent stops to share information and I was immediately comfortable with the hike. This is my most favorite adventure I've done in my life and although you can do the hike without a guide, I'm so so glad we chose to book with this guide! it was not too hard. We did become breathless at points, and Nino paused to share information and to take pictures when needed. What an absolutely wonderful experience!

The hike was great. Everything was well organized, we felt personally welcome from the start. Giovanni is a great guide, he told a lot of exciting things. The hike is easy to do with sturdy shoes. And the view is stunning. In between there was a small traditional meal at a goat farm for a donation. Uncomplicated and nice. The whole tour is just great. Thanks very much!

AMAZING!! Super knowledgeable guide, knew the plants along the path and plucked fresh mint, rocket, etc for tasting and also organized a lunch at a little farm house on the hike.

Incredible views of the Amalfi coast on this hike. Our guide was excellent!
