"Best Decision"

We used See Amalfi Coast for three private tours for a group of four adults.

Naples- Tour Guide: Carmine
We originally met Carmine in Naples. He was prompt, his vehicle was clean, and he was friendly. While the company had suggestions of places for us to visit, we were also open to suggestions and the tour was customizable which we really liked. Carmine took us to Sorrento and gave us time to walk through the streets and then took us to the Amalfi coast. He kept telling us to save our appetite. We also stopped by an olive grove or farm where we tasted samples of different types of oils and had some limoncello. Next, Carmine took us to a farm to table restaurant which overlooked the coastline and it was beautiful. EVERYTHING was fresh and prepared the same day. I was a bit nervous because there is no menu so I didn't know what to expect and I'm a picky eater. The meal started with veggie appetizers (i.e. sautéed spinach, broccoli, chickpeas, eggplant) and then we had pasta (i.e. ravioli, gnocchi, etc) and then dessert. The meal was served family style, with wine and bread. Everything was delicious and fresh. It was totally worth it and it was also affordable. We didn't even know there was a farm nearby because it didn't smell and it was so clean. We were able to stop along the way and take pictures of the beautiful scenery. We also visited Pompeii, which seems to be an all day event but we were so exhausted we only stayed about an hour and a half. We really enjoyed our driver Carmine who was timely, polite, funny, and made excellent suggestions. We trusted him to do a great job and he did just that!

Rome- Tour Guide: Manuel (Manny)
AWESOME. Our guide Manny was punctual, polite, and kind. His vehicle was clean and up to date. Manny also made suggestions for us to save on time which we really appreciated. There was traffic heading into Rome due to construction but Manny was able to navigate around it and took us to the Roman Colosseum. There were so many people and the crowds were overwhelming so we took pictures for a few minutes and continued on our way. Manny pointed out different historical buildings and facts along the way and also took us to tour the Roman Catacombs. We visited Vatican city and enjoyed a nice, simple pizza lunch at a place Manny recommended. It wasn't a tourist trap and it was so good. We also had time to walk in the square and get gelato that he was kind enough to let us finish in his van. I really wanted to see the Trevi Fountain and although it seemed we were pressed for time, Manny took us and I'm so thankful he did. Manny was a good conversationalist and answered any question we had. As it was a long day, we were really exhausted because of all of the walking and activities so we all fell asleep on the ride back to the cruise port. We arrived safely at the port thanks to Manny. One of our favorite tours!

Livorno (Pisa/Florence)- Tour Guide: Giovanni (Gio)
Our final tour with the company. Again, they did not disappoint. We were so pleased with Gio as well! He was on time, polite, and kind as were the other two guides. His vehicle was clean and well kept and really up to date. From the moment we got into the van, Gio began telling us the history of Livorno and the port and this continued throughout the day. We went to the leaning tower of Pisa and then my sister asked Gio if we could go to a vineyard once we arrived in Tuscany. Honestly, I don't even remember what we had scheduled to do on this tour but Gio was able to accommodate her request and took us to the vineyard which we really liked! We were able to purchase wine and continued on our way. I really loved that the guides were able to customize the tour to what we wanted to see, which is why we paid for a private tour. It was worth it. We went to a beautiful spot where we overlooked the city and took pictures. Gio was also able to stop along the way where we took pictures with the Tuscan hills and vineyards in the backyard... so awesome!!!! We had lunch and returned to our cruise ship. This tour was really more sightseeing which we enjoyed because we were tired from the other two days. The added benefit was that although we were mostly in the van, Gio gave so much history and information which provided context to the areas we drove through.

Overall, See Amalfi Coast was probably the best decision we made when booking private tours. They took us to every place we wanted to see and we didn't feel rushed or pressed for time. Though the guides don't really go into the places with you (i.e. the Vatican or Pompeii), the company was willing to set you up with tour guides at those attractions. The drivers were safe and knowledgeable and the vehicles were clean and air-conditioned. The company was reasonable with pricing as well. We loved our visit to Italy and the tours were some of the highlights of our trip. If we ever return to Italy, we will definitely be using them again and I suggest you should to.

"Favoloso tour! Esperienza di una vita"

We just got back from a wonderful vacation, spending the majority of our time in Italy. The highlight of our trip was our tour with Carmine from See Amalfi Coast Tours. We have been on a lot of tours in our lifetime but this tour far exceeds anything we have experienced. Carmine was recommended to us by a friend who took a tour with him a few years ago. She told me we had to do a tour with Carmine if we are in Naples. Best recommendation ever! Carmine was very funny and we were laughing the entire time of the tour. He treated us like family and he will forever be our friend. He is very passionate about his country and especially the Amalfi Coast region. He will take you to special places that the average tour companies are unable to go. He had a few surprises for us that I won’t mention in case you book the tour. The beauty of the Amalfi Coast is something you will never forget. I highly recommend See Amalfi Coast Tours. You will have the experience of a lifetime. Thank you Carmine for making our tour extra special and the most memorable part of our vacation.

“A day we will never forget!”
Carmine arrived to pick us up at our hotel and our grand adventure began. A quick, entertaining drive took us to Pompeii. We were met by Charlotte, a well-versed archaeologist who enthusiastically and cheerfully led us on a trek of the ancient city of Pompeii. She made us feel comfortable and answered our many questions.
After saying good-bye to our new friend, we got back into a very comfortable luxury auto to journey to the Amalfi Coast. The villages and ocean views were breathtaking and Carmine provided rich commentary as we proceeded along. Lunch was next at a family owned, farm to table restaurant. We toured the farm, met the delightful family members and then sat down to delicious meal. Then onto Sorrento for a bit of shopping and back to our hotel. We were joyously exhausted and felt we had made new friends that we won't soon forget. Thank you Carmine for "piloting" are AMAZING day!

“Favorite day during our visit to Europe”
We booked this day tour based on TripAdvisor reviews, and so I feel compelled to add yet another glowing review. Our family of four (including 7 and 8 year old kids) arrived via cruise ship in August, and knowing our time was limited in port, opted for a private tour of the area. Ciro met us at the cruise terminal, loaded us into his clean and spacious Mercedes van, and whisked us off before most people were even off the ship. He was much more than a driver; he was an enthusiastic ambassador for his beloved Naples! We learned a lot about the area, and my kids soaked up all the interesting tidbits of information Ciro shared.

We drove first to Sorrento, where we had time to wander the tiny hillside streets and shops before Ciro took us to Positano. In Positano, we primarily visited the shopping district at the center of town to buy some local wines and lemoncello, before Ciro took us to a fabulous local restaurant for a leisurely lunch on their patio. The food and atmosphere were fantastic! After lunch, Ciro drove us back to Naples, where his company had booked for us a private tour guide at Pompeii. It was a very hot day, and the crowds were large, but our tour guide did a great job steering us around the large tour groups so we could see the highlights of Pompeii.

It's a beautiful area and we would have loved to spend more time there; cruise ship itineraries make for a hurried trip, but See Amalfi Coast allowed us to see and experience a lot in a short time. Thank you! Our family remembers Ciro fondly when we talk about our vacation!
