Meet your driver at your cruise port in Naples, where you’ll step aboard your minivan with your small group.

Head south to the town of Sorrento, with sweeping views of the Bay of Naples. Enjoy an hour of free time to wander the cafe-lined square of Piazza Tasso, check out the 15th-century cathedral or peruse the local shops.

Afterward, reunite with your driver and begin the ride along the Amalfi Coast, a 40-mile (64-km) shoreline dotted with pastel-colored villages and dramatic cliffs. Travel toward the town of Positano, with views of the Mediterranean and the region’s lemon groves lining the road.

Then, soak up an hour in Positano at your own pace. Visit the Church of St Maria Assunta, enjoy a coffee at a local café or browse the chic selection of shops.

Continue to the town of Amalfi and take another hour to explore at your leisure. Try some southern Italian fare for lunch (own expense) or admire the marble, 9th-century cathedral.

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

After a full day of independent exploration, your trip will conclude back at the Naples cruise port.

An excellent experience off the cruise ship
Erwin S
, Oct 2019
If you only have a short time to explore this area, this excursion is a great option. Our driver/guide was very knowledgeable, pointing out highlights, stopping for photo opportunities, and taking us into the town centres of these great cities. Our small group of 8 had time to explore on our own, so everyone got to spend time doing things that interested them. A good choice for visitors that are able to walk distances without assistance.

A great Amalfi coast trip

our driver was very considerate of each of our group, gave information about trip and sights we were passing. He was very polite. Stopped for pictures. It was a great excursion. He was very conscientious about getting us back to our ship on time. I would highly reccomend this excursion.

Highly anticipated, highly disappointed!

We too the Amalfi Coast tour and where so excited as it was the most anticipated excursion of the entire 14 day cruise! We felt we where in a race the entire time! The driver seemed so rushed with us. I'd read and therefore expected the drive to be a bit rushed, but this driver was ridiculous. I don't scare easily, but I held on for dear life the entire last part of the trip. This trip should be definitely broken down into only two towns allowing for more time to explore. The driver was that and only that, my information, my conversation, nothing!! Just rush, rush, rush, hurry, hurry, hurry. It all went by in a blur, so sadly a very bad impression of my first tour with this company.

Not a very relaxing trip.
Jon_S
, Aug 2019
Viator delivered what it promised with this excursion. However this trip most certainly could have been better. The excursion lasted 10 hours. Much longer than we were expecting. This was not a relaxing trip. We joined the excursion from a cruise ship. We told the driver we needed to be back on board by 18:30; We made it back by 18:15! This margin of time was way too close for comfort!! The coastal road was full of hair-pin turns and other drivers that were very aggressive. While on the express way, we noticed the driver going 150-160 KPH (over 90 mph). We wasted over an hour of the trip at a restaurant for lunch. This was very annoying. My wife and I weren't asked if we wanted to stop. We most certainly would have wanted to spend more time in one of the beautiful cities we visited. I'm definately glad I was able to see Sorrento, Amalfi and Ravello. Those 3 cities were like heaven on earth. (Positano was great but way too crowded.) I would not recommend taking this excursion if you are on a cruise ship. Sorrento and Amalfi are amazing! I would recommend a single trip to Amalfi or Sorrento, preferrably via boat, so you may have more time visiting these beautiful places.

Poor use of time - Driver had his own agenda!
AMTManhattanBeach_CA
, Jun 2019
Was sooo looking forward to this excursion, and while we did go to each city overall we were very disappointed. Driver barely spoke English. Never slowed down or stopped at points with amazing views even when there was no one behind us - instead he drove like a bat out of hell the whole way. Gave us very little time in each city - not even an hour - and instead took us to junk store in the middle of nowhere AND stopped for lunch, again in the middle of nowhere, for over an hour of wasted time. This stop was definitely not mentioned on the Agenda, food was very overpriced, plus we had already eaten at one of the stops. First time we have been disappointed by Viator, but unfortunately were big time. Do NOT recommend this tour.

Terrible experience
Jack C
, May 2019
I had dozen of trips with viator and this was the worst. Firstly an excursion in English but the driver/guide does not have enough English ability. He was a terrible driver and at the end two members of my group got car sick. The tour was supposed to be an 8 hours one and we ended up close to cruise departure time. He took us to his recommended restaurant but did not tell us how much time we have there and ended with a rush. The entire group did not have objections to spending 10 minutes less in the afternoon stops so as to catch up the time but he insisted not.

Mark T
, Oct 2018
The driver we had for this tour was absolutely horrible. We had an hour stop at each location which was wonderful but while in the van traveling to each location the driver would continue to drive as fast as he could and slam on the breaks everyone in the van had a headache after experiencing whip lash symptoms. While driving along the Almafi Coast the driver continued to try to pass busses and cars constantly honking and trying to swerve around them. We had booked 6 different tours with Viator, the other 5 tours were positive experiences but unfortunately we will never book again after this experience. We all felt our lives were in danger and told the driver so and he said too bad, this is how it is.

We only got to the first stop didn't get to visit the other two locations as promised. Taken to a restaurant the tour guide suggested, sure he got a kick back. Tour was not worth the money we spent and didn't get to the locations as promised.

Our driver did not have a good command of the english language which made it difficult to get the most from the tour. the tour was a lot of driving on very congested roads and one stop had to be eliminated. We had to rush back to get to the ship before sailing. All-in-all if rated as a less than enjoyable tour.

This was a nice tour overall. Our driver picked us up from our cruise port. We were in a nice minivan with two other couples. We had two hiccups. When it was time to eat lunch he wanted to take us to one specific place, but we wanted more choices. One of the passengers thought that he had a relationship with that particular restaurant. When we voiced our concern he took us to a better place that had several choices of restaurants as well as many places to buy souvenirs. The driver gave us a specific time to meet us at the meeting point and he was about 10 or 15 minutes late. We didn't know if he was late because he was upset with us for not going to his preferred restaurant or if he ran into traffic there was a lot of traffic in the area. He didn't apologize for being late or give us an explanation. Overall I enjoyed the excursion and I would do it again if I am Italy again.

Wonderful Experience
Cindy P
, Sep 2018
We decided to try this tour based on all the wonderful reviews and not being impressed by the cruise ship tours. All I can say is it was Wonderful. Our Driver, Marlo, was wonderful, knowledgeable and personable. He was promptly on time and waiting for us outside our ship. He took us to Amalfi, Sorrento, Positano and Ravello and made sure we knew where we were going and was promptly waiting for us at the agreed upon time. Please do be aware that this trip does involve a lot of traffic time but the time in traffic went by quickly because the sights were so beautiful.Marlo and his tour group continuously kept in contact to avoid traffic wherever possible so we could spend the most time in each place. His expertise in driving was amazing as the roads are very windy and narrow and have to be navigated professionally. He and his crew rimed everything perfectly to make sure we were back in time to catch the ship. I can't say enough wonderful things about Marlo and this tour. Please be sure you take this tour whenever you are in Naples.

Alberto was great as a tour guide and especially a driver along those narrow and winding roads. The highlight was the impromptu lunch just before arriving in Almafi. The food was fantastic. All the views were amazing. Highly recommend this tour.

Wonderful cruise excursion!

We were docked in Naples from 7AM - 6PM, last boarding at 5:30PM. We were met by our driver right on time outside of the cruise terminal. The van was comfortable, and a total of 8 passengers (6 of us from the same cruise). We had a fantastic day with stops in Sorrento, Positano, Amalfi, and Ravello. In between Positano and Amalfi our driver took us to a little restaurant for lunch (not included in price) and we had a delicious meal. He stopped at picturesque lookout points along the drive and gave us a few minutes to take photos. We fully enjoyed the day and were back at the cruise terminal by 5:15PM. This was a highlight of our trip and a great way to spend the last port day on our cruise. Highly recommend.

One of the best places I ever visited!
Wafik_Z
, Jul 2018
It took us an hour waiting in the van before we could even leave from the port. As a result it limited our stays at each town. The views along the ride were spectacular. The drive could be nauseating with all the curves. We stopped in Sorrento, Positano, Amalfi and Ravello. My favorite were Sorrento and Amalfi. I would have reduced the number of towns since we had limited time in each one and couldn't fully enjoy them. The driver was nice, but he basically dropped us off and told us a meeting point and time, which we knew this was the excursion. He did stop in at a viewpoint for a photo opportunity.

Excellent Tour
Rosalyn_K

The tour was perfect from beginning to end. As soon as we exited the ship our driver was waiting for us, joined with another driver for our 2nd party. We wanted to remain together the entire trip and they were extremely accommodating. Although not a guide, our driver was very willing to talk to us, answer all our questions, and point out important landmarks. The tour covers four areas, all extremely beautiful. The Amalfi Coast is lined with a winding road showcasing breathtaking views. Highly recommend the tour and if you’re lucky, Antonio will be your driver. All other 5-star ratings are on point.
