This was a great way to see Postiano, Amalfi and Ravello all in 1 day from Sorrento. The journeys were so smooth , the mini coach ride from Sorrento to Positano is beautiful you drive along the famous roads and you even get to stop to take pics at the most breathtaking sights. A decent amount of time in Positano then we got a ferry to Amalfi which was also amazing to sail along the amalfi coast , once we got to Amalfi we got another speedboat to see sights along the coast only visible by boat like the ‘elephants kissing’ after that a gorgeous ride to Ravello and another beautiful location with gardens and panaramic views easy to see why it’s such a popular wedding location. Ravello was probably my favourite, it’s like stuck in time. Giovanni was our mini coach driver and he was really great we felt safe , Lisa was a great tour guide very friendly and helpful. So happy we done this, a great day.

Wonderful! Our tour guide Anna and driver Francesco were a great team. Anna was comical and spoke fluent English, providing insightful information throughout our tour. While our driver Francesco handled our comfortable bus with ease. For the amount you pay and the sights you see in a single day, you can not find any better. My wife and I highly recommend! Just book it already

La guida Ornella è stata fantastica e Sabatino l’autista un grande nella guida! Puntuale in tutto dal pick up point alle diverse tappe! Se posso consigliare non vorrei aver fatto il giro opzionale in barca perché non ne vale la pena, meglio restare a mangiare qualcosa in più ad Amalfi.

Excellent option! Pick-ups/drop offs, crew,times,service everything was amazing! We had an amazing experience! Ask for Carolina as a crew director!

The staff was great! Thanks for a great experience
