Full description
Experience the Amalfi Drive, said to be the most spectacular in Europe, on a scenic coach tour from Sorrento. Stop to take photos of picturesque towns along the way, including Positano, Amalfi, and Ravello. Following a pick-up from your hotel in Sorrento on the Sorrentine Peninsula, drive along the winding coast and cliffside road, and enjoy continuous panoramic views that take your breath away. Stop above the artistic resort of Positano, and marvel at its houses tumbling down to the sea like a waterfall cascades down the rocks. Continue along the coast to find local shops selling the traditional colorful ceramics of the region. Next, stop in Amalfi, and discover a once a thriving maritime city to rival Genoa, Pisa, and Venice. Now a thriving holiday resort, the ancient town is dominated by a magnificent 9th-century cathedral, where the remains of the Patron Saint of Amalfi are preserved. Enjoy some free time to explore the cobbled streets of Amalfi, before driving up hill to the medieval town of Ravello, nestled in the mountainside 1,100 feet above the sea. Enjoy the best views of the Amalfi Coast, overlooking Minori, Maiori, and beyond. Go to Ravello’s main square to see the picturesque 11th century cathedral.

It was an AMAZING experience and I would do any other tour with Rosella! With a low price she did more than somebody with a high price would not do! She spent ALL her time with us, is doing her job with love an passion and everything in this trip was PERFECT! We saw the best places, found out the history, had tips, had fund and enjoyed our group and she was also extremely nice to bring us to an amazing restaurant were we ate very well with very low non touristic price and in the end also relaxed in the bus with a very good italian music. Thank you very much again with all that you did for us!

What a wonderful way to end our holiday! Our guide Diego was fantastic! He was very informative pointing things out as we drove and he kept us laughing the whole way. The views really were phenomenal. Don’t let the Italian driving put you off, our driver Valentine was amazingly skilled and navigating the tight turns along the Amalfi coast. Even though we had some engine trouble on the way home Diego kept us in high spirits with his great sense of humour whilst Valentine was quickly sorting out what was wrong with the coach. While the trip does not include lunch, one of the stops was at a lovely family restaurant where we enjoyed a set menu with unlimited wine for just €15 and were treated to a concert by Diego on the piano. I would strongly recommend booking this tour for the views and the company. Susan and Jonny :D

Good tour-Excellent Guide

It was a very good tour, we really enjoyed. The bus did not stop at Positano for pictures as promised, and the return route was boring. But then for the price it was good value for money. Had I known, I would have paid more to book a tour which included positano. The tour guide was excellent. Very friendly and helpful. Over all, I enjoyed the tour.
