Best tour of our Mediterranean cruise
My husband, a family friend and myself were met by Manuel at the cruise ship terminal for our private tour. (Unexpectantly our tour for 4 ended up being just 3). He was there waiting as we departed our ship and we were on our way. Our initial itinerary was to visit 3 towns along the Amalfi Coast. However, after further discussion and some recommendations by Manuel, we ended up with a unique itinerary specific to our desire to see and experience as much as we could in 8 hours. He was very flexible, committed to making sure we were back at the Port on time and excited to show us the best of his homeland. Manuel was wonderful. I just can’t say enough. We visited a limoncello factory, Sorrento, Positano, Pompeii and stopped at several road side stops to take pictures and shop. In addition, my hubby and I were celebrating our wedding anniversary. Manuel had planned for us to have a special lunch in Positano (with breathtaking views of the coastline) and everyone was so kind , wishing us well and providing champagne. They made us feel so special and the food and view at the farm to table restaurant was breathtaking. I have already recommended Manuel and Carmine to others. We plan to return and will definitely tour with them again. This day on Amalfi Coast was the best. It was worth every dime. My suggestion is to spend the money to have an experienced driver, to be in small group, and to have a knowledgeable and personable tour guide. Oh, and I can’t forget, if you’re lucky enough to have Manuel as your guide, ask him to serenade you. What a voice. Not to be missed. Thanks guys for the best day ever on the Amalfi Coast. Such a treat.
Carmine was wonderful! He took us from Sorrento to Positano & many points in between. He was knowledgeable & personable & always attune to our comfort. The drive was spectacular. A really special treat was the restaurant, trattoria La Tagliata , a family owned restaurant perched on the side of the cliff with amazing views. The food was literally fresh from the gardens on the premises& terrific! A truly fabulous day. Carmine is the best!
I had the great fortune to have met Carmine five years ago on my first Mediterranean cruise, as he was our private tour guide. He was truly incredible. My first experience is something I will remember forever. While booking our second trip, I immediately reached out to Carmine in hopes that he would be available. He was kind enough to give us Manuel as our guide. Immediately we knew Manuel was going to be the next best thing! He shared is knowledge, he is a safe driver; which is a must traveling through the Amalfi coastline, and has a beautiful voice, as he serenaded us!! Everything you read about Carmine and his drivers is true. They take their job as a guide very seriously. In addition, they love their jobs and it shows! They truly treat you like royalty and share the most beautiful sights in the world! I feel like we’ve got a friend forever in Carmine and now Manuel! Thank you both for making beautiful memories that will last a lifetime!
Review of: Amalfi Coast tour, explore a treasure chest of gems + farm to table lunch
Myself and my wife had a fabulous day with Carmine. He took us to remote areas that were so romantic. The views were breathtaking and great photos. He took us to a family restaurant up on a mountain which was surreal. We felt so welcomed and special. The food was very good and feasible for the amount of food we got. We even had someone play the guitar for us and sang a beautiful sing in Italian. Very romantic. I could not ask for a better romantic day that we received. Carmine was knowledgeable and professional. He was so kind and accommodating throughout the day. But I knew the first time I received an email. I knew we had the right company. Very detailed oriented and precious. Thumbs up Via.
A Totally unforgettable experience. Carmine is an excellent driver and guide. His knowledge of the area, combined with his happy demeanor, pleasant personality, and dedication to his family business make him outstanding!! We felt safe, secure and special. He showed us unique areas in Amalfi, Positano and Sorrento, where we took hundreds of photos each better than the next. He took us to lunch at a farm to table restaurant, which was so special that we will never forget it, and hope to return one day
Carmine was AWESOME! His secret tour is the best. I've been to Amalfi four times now and Carmine was the best guide I've had by far. I won't share his secrets but they gave us (8 of us) views and experiences we hadn't had on previous trips here. He took us to an excellent restaurant where the food just kept coming and coming even though we were stuffed. We were never rushed. He even found time for us to go to a local shopping mall so my son could by a Napoli jersey. We loved Carmine.
