EXTENDED TOUR DESCRIPTION

THE PERFECT DAY ON THE AMALFI COAST

Most Amalfi Coast tours from Rome stick to the roads, seeing the crystal-clear waters of the coastline from above but hardly glimpsing its cliffside towns at all. Not this tour, though. On this tour, we do both; taking you into the open air and onto the water. Traveling the Amalfi Coast by boat, you’ll have perfect views of the coastline’s most famous asset: Its colorful towns. You’ll get out and about, wandering the streets of Positano and shopping for sandals, eating lunch on the beach and splashing around the water. Then in Amalfi town, you'll climb to the top of the town for an authentic limoncello tasting on a hidden farm.

Carefully balancing the value of a guided tour with time alone to explore and shop, our Amalfi Coast tours from Rome offer you the perfect day in paradise without the hassle of organizing your own trains, cars and boats.

Your guide travels with you all day for added ease & helpful info

Your tour meets early in the morning at Termini train station, where your (fun & fluent) English-speaking guide will join you for the short journey by high-speed train. In just 70 minutes you’ll be in Naples, where you’ll meet your private bus and driver. Believe it or not, this stretch of your journey will be one of the highlights of the day.

The drive along the Amalfi Coast is stunning, so we’ll be sure to stop for a photo opportunity or two. Traveling in small groups of just 15 people or fewer has its perks and this is one; with a small bus you’ll be able to navigate the narrow streets of the Amalfi Coast, disembarking right in Positano town.

In Positano your guide will give you an introductory tour, teaching you about this pretty little town and giving you tips on where to shop and eat lunch. Then you’ll have two hours to spend as you wish.

Boat-Hopping and limoncello: An authentic Amalfi experience

After lunch we’ll reconvene and board a small boat for the 30-minute ride to Amalfi Town. Sit back and watch as colorful coastal towns bob past. And don’t forget your sunglasses – between Amalfi’s blue skies and crystal waters, it can be pretty blinding!

Climb ashore at picturesque Amalfi town and follow your guide uphill to a hidden lemon orchard. There’s a table reserved for us here, on the edge of the property overlooking Amalfi Town, the beach and the sea below. Here you’ll sample limoncello and some traditional Amalfi Coast snacks, like lemon cookies or cake.

Afterwards you’ll have free time to shop, wander or take a dip in the sea. Don’t forget your swimsuit!

As the evening draws in you’ll meet your guide and board the boat once again for the 40-minute boat ride to Salerno, where you’ll board a train back to Rome. Arriving back in the city around 8.40PM, you’re just in time for dinner!

I loved this tour in the sense that it took very little effort to organize such a complex arrangement of trains, buses and boats. It would have been time consuming to do the same thing by our selves and I doubt we could have seen so much in one day. Roberta, our guide, was very kind and easy to follow but I felt that she was more of a babysitter than an informational based person. That's all well and fine but the tour price should reflect that. Thank you!
Roberta was an excellent guide and was just wonderful to spend the day with--made the tour a five star experience for us!!

Hugo was great- we loved his enthusiasm and attention to details with food and music and love of the Italian and Napoli culture! Definitely recommend.
We loved our guide Luca, he was great and remained calm and in charge under some trying conditions and sorted everything out for us so we never experienced any stress at all. The Amalfi Coast is a stunning location and being able to experience it in a day trip from Rome is incredible. Luca's knowledge of the area was very impressive.
Amalfi Boat Hopping was a beautiful trip that was very well organized. Hugo was a great guide- very informative, funny, and personable. Great trip!

Alessandra was awesome! She was so friendly and always made sure everyone was having a great time! Would do it again in a heartbeat!
The Boat-Hopping Amalfi Coast tour was one of the highlights of our trip to Europe. Antonella was very approachable and friendly and tried very hard to ensure we had a pleasant and enjoyable experience given the extreme temperatures. Our bus drive was very competent and we were happy we could make a couple of stops along the coast to take photographs. I would highly recommend this tour to future travellers along with sunscreen, hat, umbrella, good walking shoes and plenty of water. My only comment, given the extreme heat of the day with the temperature rising to close to 40 degrees, would be complementary bottles of water for guests given out on the tour bus or on board the boat as we had to sit on the boat in direct sun for 25 minutes as we waited for the boat to leave. Thank you Walks of Italy. Susan (New Zealand)

Our day trip to the Amalfi Coast was the highlight of our vacation. Rhianne was an amazing tour guide. It felt like we were traveling with a good friend. She kept a perfect pace for the day. This trip is the absolute best way to take in the beautiful Amalfi Coast. And there was enough time for us to drift away on our own for a meal, shopping, etc. Rhianne took the stress out of having us try to book this on our own, worrying about catching the trains, cars, & boats on time, etc. She was so confident and willing to share many many interesting stories and tips along the way. We loved our day on this tour. It's so great because the group was small, only 10 of us. We loved the private boat too! Thank you!
Greetings Gaia many thanks for the opportunity to go on this tour - it was great to see the coast with a lot of time actually there on the day. The aperitivo provided by Luca on the train for all was very welcome for the trip home. As a 'road-tester' I would make the following observation - if the point of going to Salerno is to catch the high speed train back to Rome... - please try and schedule the ferry so that a better/earlier connection to an earlier train is made. We were simply waiting in Salerno basically for 45 minutes or so - on a shopping street, nothing of any real interest - before going to the train station. It seemed a bit pointless. It was a great full day. regards Liz Smith
Our guide (Andrea) was fantastic - very knowledgeable and funny, and the tour was everything I expected it to be. I loved being able to see more parts of Italy and the limoncello tasting was not something I would've even thought of doing without your tour.
It was a very good trip. Thoroughly enjoyed the surroundings. I thought however, that the guide could speak more about the historic aspects of the Amalfi. The lemon orchard tour was a highlight. Otherwise we were very well taken care of, and w noted that it was a small and bespoke group.

Loved the tour and the guide!
Unfortunately I cannot remember our guides names (it was a male and female), we ended up with the female and we cannot speak highly enough of her. She was so friendly and easy to talk to. On the train back to Rome the male guide went and purchased water, cheeses and biscuits to share. We would definitely recommend your company and in particular this tour and guides. They should both be commended for their job. Thank you so much for a wonderful day.
Great tour - very accomadating, friendly and informative guides in Riane and Andreas. So loved being able to see the Amalfi Coast from the ocean. Would definitely recommend this if you are time poor and really want to see this amazing coastline.
Excellent tour, and Giorgia is a fantastic /enthusiatic guide
The tour to Amalfi was by far the favorite of our trip thus far! Hugo has a great personality, one that served well for spending hours with the tour group. He was extremely helpful and showed genuine care for each person on the tour. The tour was just the right amount of time in each town with introduction highlights as we entered each leg of the day. The time spent at each stop gave us the opportunity to explore enough without feeling like we missed out on anything, but also as we were not there for an overly extended period of time, which helped break up the day. Hugo provided a wonderful experience which we will never forget! Dan & Natasha

Andy was a great guide. He was very informative to all people on the tour, he made sure we were all on track with the timing of the meeting places, and was just a pleasure to be around I was pleased with the instructions we received via email on the initial meeting place. The picture helped and instructions were very clear. My only suggestion (and this is a tough call) is that it would've been nice to get in line to the boat a little earlier. The boat we were on was packed and by the time we got there, it was hard to find a place to sit. This is somewhat of catch-22 because I am sure people would also not be pleased to be sitting on a boat waiting when they could be on the shore exploring. Last, the lemon farm was AWESOME!!! Great item to have on the tour!! My family is very active so the stairs/climb was not difficult for us, but I can see where it might be for some. It was nice to sit up at the top of the climb and enjoy the things that were done there.
Beautiful and relaxing. Sara was fantastic!

The itinerary wasn't quite the same as the description, but it was still am amazing tour
Our guide was enthusiastic, knowledgeable, and passionate. She made the day educational and fun! We learned about the food grown around the Amalfi Coast as well as the culture. The also served as training for how to use the train stations. This was a great way to explore the beautiful Amalfi Coast without scheduling the transportation on our own or booking a hotel.
Hi, I know this is a new tour for you so here is my feedback. First, Giorgia our guide was terrific. Loved her. I am not a shopper so having time to "shop and roam around" was a waste of time for me. I would suggest a longer time in the van driving along the Amalfi, so that you did not end up having to eat lunch at 11:30. Also, at the lemon farm your advertisement makes it should like there would be comfortable seating and you would taste a variety of lemon sweets which was not the case, what we had was delicious and the time spent there was interesting but now as "fancy" as it is made to sound and the climb is arduous. But the views were great and the lemon rind tasting was delicious. You might want to rethink this a bit and instead of going to the very touristy and hectic towns like Positano and Amalfi you stop at some one of the smaller village and have an arranged lunch with the group having an authentic meal from the area. I think that would be more value add as this is a pricey tour. Thanks for being open to suggestions.
This was my only day trip outside of the city on my 7 day trip to Rome, and wow! The Amalfi Coast is stunningly picturesque. Adrian was a fun and knowledgeable guide and managed to keep all of us on track and on time the whole day! The drive along the coast from Sorrento had my eyes practically glued to the windows of the comfy van. There were orchards on the cliff sides practically the whole way to the charming tourist town of Positano where I bought handmade leather sandals from one of the shops and sunned on the black sand beach. The ferry ride to Amalfi Town was lovely. I spent the whole ride without wearing sunglasses just so I could the see the unbelievably pure azure color of the water. So beautiful. In Amalfi, we climbed several short flights of stairs to a terraced lemon orchard overlooking the town and sampled limoncello and several other lemon snacks while enjoying the company of other travelers. The orchard was so beautiful and it was really interesting to learn about how the orchards on the Amalfi coast have sustained the region for centuries. The train ride back was super easy and after such a busy day, I slept most of the way back to Rome. It was a long day, but totally worth it!
Manuela was fabulous! She made the trip so fantastic with her fun personality & knowledge of the area. She was very relaxed with a big group traveling through rail & boats & took great care of us all the entire day. The trip was AMAZING! I have already passed your company onto my parents headed to Italy in September & a family headed there in July. Everything was awesome.
Manuela was fantastic! My daughter and I both enjoyed her enthusiasm and spirit. She gets our top rating for tour guide. The event itself was spectacular and the entire day went off without a hitch. Molto bene!!!!
Antonella was such a wonderfully energetic tour guide! This day trip was a great way to get a taste of the beautiful Amalfi coast. My husband and I particularly enjoyed visiting the family owned lemon farm! Such a wonderful experience! Kathryn and Robert
Great day, perfectly organized. Both Positano and Amalfi are fabulous places and the visit to the lemon farm adds so much to the enjoyment. The boat rides offer exceptional views of the coast but the train ride back to Rome is toooo long, at the end of a wonderful but tiring day. Antonella is exceptional in her enthusiastic, positive way of communicating with the people and providing interesting detailed information.
This day trip from Rome was the highlight of our week! Francesca was pleasant, accomdating and very knowledgeable! The transitions from the train to the van to the boats were seamless! We would love to spend more time on the Coast our next visit to italy! Well worth the money!!
