This activity will end right where it started.Please insert your accommodation address in Naples (hotel, b&b, airbnb) in the "Special Requirements" section when booking, then call the local supplier the evening before your tour after 7PM to know your pick up time and if your pick up will be at your accommodation, nearby, or at our starting point.
Begin your day trip at your central hotel in Naples or at the city's train station. Meet your driver and hop aboard your minivan toward Sorrento, the clifftop resort just west of the Amalfi Coast, a 40-mile (64-km) shoreline renowned for its brightly-hued villages and dramatic cliffs.

After a relaxing journey, arrive in Sorrento and enjoy free time to roam at your own pace. Check out the town's central Piazza Tasso, the 15th-century cathedral or peruse the local shops and cafes.

Reunite with your group and continue along the Amalfi Coast, with views of the glimmering Mediterranean and the region's famous lemon groves.

Arrive in Positano, a town of confetti-colored buildings spread between the cliffs. Admire the Church of St Maria Assunta, relax with coffee and a pastry or pick up a souvenir at the chic boutiques and galleries.

Next stop in Amalfi, where you can savor some southern Italian fare for lunch (own expense) or visit the impressive 9th-century cathedral.

Your final stop takes you higher into the cliffs, to the town of Ravello. Consider using your time here to see the 13th-century Villa Rufolo (own expense), with gardens showcasing spectacular views of the coast.

Afterward, drive back to Naples, where your trip ends at your original departure point or any city center location of your choosing.

Sorrento
Meet your driver at your central Naples hotel or at Naples’ central train station.

Then, rejoin your minibus and keep your camera ready as you drive along the Amalfi Coast, tracing its winding cliffside road between lemon groves and the sparkling Mediterranean on route to Positano. Wedged between cliffs, Positano’s pastel houses fall steeply down to the sea, forming one of the Amalfi Coast's scenic highpoints. Arrive in the town and use an hour of free time here to perhaps shop at the chic boutiques and galleries, relax over coffee, or admire the Church of St Maria Assunta, famous for its tiled dome.

Wonderful experience with a pleasant company. Giovanni was very helpful with the supplied information about the places we were touring. The restaurant he brought us to proved to serve delicious food with great taste of fresh vegetables and fish. An enchanting way of getting along with the Costiera Amalfitana!

Great Day Tour

Great small tour to be able to visit the Amalfi Coast in a day. Our guide was a great driver and navigated around so efficiently and effortlessly since he does this multiple times a week. We were able to stop at each place for an hour and had a leisurely longer lunch at a more quiet place which was nice. Would recommend this to anyone!

We were on a cruise ship but chose this excursion independently. The time at each place was just right and we saw lovely places. The driver could not do enough and was very patient when another couple with 2 children were always late. This couple after being 20 mins late at one stop were not happy when other people on the tour complained, they then got a taxi back to Napoli. However this did not spoil our day out,

Great way to get a taste of the Amalfi Coast. Time in key towns to explore on your own terms. Great driver who was insightful, not to mention a master at navigating the traffic. Added in an additional stop for lunch which was good. Better than taking a bus or large group transfer.

For us, this was a great way of seeing the main towns in Amalfi when we had a packed schedule. We did not need hours in each place so the schedule suited us but it won’t be for everyone. A nice mini can of 7 took us along the scenic coast and our driver was punctual, polite, patient and funny. A wonderful day out, great communication beforehand and a very nice group of people to travel with. Worth every penny.

Glorified Taxi service with forced stops at partner shops

First: views are incredible, Amalfi is unreal and you certainly will have a great experience with the landscape. They stop at a few locations for a quick photo op when you reach more panoramic vistas. Our driver was very polite, considerate driver on the winding roads, and very pleasant. What we were expecting: roughly 8 hour trip in comfortable van to 4 cities with lunch as we went in the cities. Some discussion from driver on where we were and some major sights with a brief description. However, the overall service was quite disappointing. Driver spoke little English so unlike other reviews, he really couldn’t even share the sites we were looking at or major landmarks. It was a pretty silent ride all around aside from passengers speaking to each other in each of their languages. We were in a 8 passenger van and they jammed us in there with 3 other groups. They stressed Covid precautions so I was quite disappointed that they were pushing people elbow to elbow like this. While there was Air conditioning, if you are in the back of the van, you will not feel it and you will miss out on most of the views from the van. If you are looking for pictures as you drive, the windows don’t roll down so you can’t get a clear shot without the light tint and reflection. What is not listed in the posting is that they take you to a limoncello shop with a variety of other goods to be purchased for a “tasting.” While you can taste, you will be heavily pressured into purchasing items and you really have to insist on not buying anything. And you will feel guilty about it. This is obviously a pre-arranged set up between the tour company and tasting site. This was a 30 minute stop that was not indicated up front. Lunch is not a choice, again they take you to a place with a prearranged set up for shopping and a pretty expensive menu for what is on it. The menu, understandably, was predominately seafood based and fairly limited on any other options. Each dish averaged 25€, but the wine was cheap! I will say, the food is mediocre and would have preferred a choice on where to eat, potentially in Positano and given two hours their instead. We were told Positano is too expensive, but the prices looked comparable, if not cheaper, when we looked at menus. Overall, one hour in each location is enough to get a very brief taste of each town but you have to walk fast! This was a good sightseeing expedition, but you realistically can only hit 3-4 shops before needing to walk back to the parking area each time. The trip ended up being roughly 12 hours, despite the advertised 8. Now, this isn’t bad but be aware that you can’t do anything predictably that day. Final thoughts: If you are able, book the private car for $200 per person and set your own itinerary. I know that isn’t feasible for everyone, but it would be a better experience. Again, the views will be amazing, but set expectations accordingly because the listing does not give the full view.

Amalfi experience

Very well organised trip from Naples with Mario our driver knowing lots of information about the area. We were picked on time from our hotel and even though the roads are very busy and a bit of a challenge our driver was very calm and relaxed. Our favourite place we visited on this trip was Ravello with a beautiful square to sit in. The trip is a full day but we had a lovely lunch at a small local restaurant Restaurante Euroconca where we had plenty of time to chat with the other six people on the trip. Highly recommend this as a way of seeing the Amalfi Coast.

My husband and I enjoyed traveling with 4 other people in a comfortable Mercedes van. Our driver Pepe was outstanding! He explained where we were going and he was an excellent driver. I expected to get motion sickness on the narrow curvy roads along the Almafi coast but I felt fine and was able to take many beautiful pictures. Our driver knew the best photo spots and the best pizza place in Amalfi! He got us home quickly, he was punctual and we had a great day!

The trip is a little costly, but worth it. Our driver shared so much info, and made at least 4 stops, which was unexpected. My husband and I were delighted with most of the trip. The drive outs California route 101 to shame. Be prepared for lots of narrow roads, many switchbacks, and steep overlooks. I would have liked our driver to drive just a but more slowly. But it’s something you should absolutely do, if you want to go to the Amalfi coast.
