With its expansive gardens and dramatic views, the villa is a popular place for weddings, honeymoons, and receptions. The villa is a private 5-star hotel (Hotel Villa Cimbrone), but the gardens are open to the public and it ranks, perhaps, as the most memorable sight on the Amalfi Coast.

Excellent trip, very well organized from the initial pickup to the final drop off. Our guide, Cynthia was extremely knowledgeable, helpful and just fun to be with. She knew history, culture and traditions of the region in depth and managed to present the facts in a very easy listening way, in excellent English to add. She answered all our questions, from shopping to places to eat, to walk, to have a great picture view, etc, We spent more than an hour and a half each in Positano, Amalfi and Ravella, enough to see, shop and eat. The boat tour was a total surprise! The bus driver was excellent, the view- just breathtaking. An experience to remember!
Great tour guide Dani and driver Salvatore excellent knowledge and good value for money . would recommend for anyone
A great day, well planned ,with enough time in each place to feel like you can say that you have been there. The tour guide Rosa was excellent and the coach and driver were first class. A good value for money trip for those on a tight schedule.
We had a terrific day with Rosario and Alphonso.as our driver and guide. The small group was fine. We toured the total AlmafI Coast. In our day .we had plenty of time to see and do at each town. The guide was well informed and lots of fun. Our driver was excellent. There was a lot of traffic.but he managed to get around. A real highlight was the boat ride along the city of AlmafI. Highly recommended.
Amazing scenery very informative guide and good driver. Recommend doing boat trip scenery stunning. Lunch stop very good. Sit on right-hand side of bus.
Roberto (our guide), you're a legend! A lovely and lively day tour. Lots to see and a good mix of information and fun. Would have liked longer in Positano but understand it's VERY expensive to park there. We didn't do the optional cruise but the reports from that were good too. If you're looking a nice day out I'd definitely recommend this tour.
Our tour guide Roberto was amazing. He is very passionate about his work and his native area of Sorrento. We had such a lovely day enjoying the views along the curvy roads leading to Positano and Amalfi. Our driver Salvatore navigated those roads like a pro. We felt very safe. When our tour ended in Ravello, Roberto asked our group if we wanted to go back via the other side of the mountain. He explained that the roads going back (the same way we came) get congested which increases the risk of accidents, resulting in long ride back. Not a good way to end a great day. Also, the scenery on the other side is very different and also quite beautiful. We all agreed to take the safer and faster route back. As a bonus, when we got back to Sorrento, Roberto squeezed in a tour of a Limoncello factory where we enjoyed tasty samples of the various types of Limoncello. We also tasted chocolates infused with lemon flavor. A great end to a wonderful day. Highly recommend this tour!
We were a family of 4 adults travelling together and were picked up by a luxury Mercedes bus from outside our hotel. The guide Roberto was definitely a highlight from our trip he kept everything very light hearted and fun whilst also pointing out the history of the amalfi coast. Salvatore the driver had some skill managing to manoeuvre the van out of some sticky places. The boat trip is well worth the extra 12 euros, the view from the sea is absolutely breathtaking. Ravello was one of my favourite places on the trip but we didn't get to spend as much time there as I would have liked however not to worry all the reason to visit again :)
many wonderful places, our guide Cinzia have provided us with much information, but the trip was unfortunately disturbed by the continuous plains of a child under 1 year of age.
Good tour guide - very informative. Enjoyed trip. Gives a little taster of each place, leaving you wanting to see more next time. Free time at each stop. Lovely views. Picturesque gardens at Ravello Villa Ruffallo.
No doubt Mariano knows his stuff, both educational and humorous. He brought our first visit to Positano, Amalfi and Ravello to life with his information about not only the towns but also sights along the way. More than enough time was alotted to walk, eat, shop and...yep use the bagno, too. For anyone who hasn’t been there, get ready. Mariano was right in calling the road “oh my God Highway.” Steep clifts to the sea if turns are wide or collisions with the multitude of cars, vans, taxis, and full-sized buses. But let’s not forget the hundreds of scooters diving in, out, and at the other traffic playing MotoGP or WSB riders. Watching those on the road and how they drive is a trip in itself. And Rafael, our driver..that man desires a try-out with the Ferrari F1 team. Calm and precise there and back safely. Thanks Mariano and Rafael for the memories and excitement!
This is a very compact day tour. Good to go and see the coast line. The guide did not come with us every where, maybe they are bored doing the same thing every day. Maybe there was not much to explain as most of it is seeing the beautiful building perched on the cliffs. OK trip to take so that you get to see the Amalfi Coast and Positano. The boat ride was good to see it from the water.
We absolutely loved this tour! We were picked up in a new, very clean bus a few feet away from our living accommodations. Sofia, our tour guide was so sweet, super funny, and extremely knowledgeable about the coast, you can tell she enjoys interacting with people from all over the globe and making connections. The times given at each local were plenty to see each what we needed to see, we were given a history and tips of the best places to hit before arriving at each place. The drive view and beach views were amazing! Sofia even managed to get us on a impromptu boat ride along the Amalfi coast which made up for our Capri bot tour getting cancelled last minute. Couldn’t have asked for a better guide, driver, and overall experience. Best part of our Italy trip this far. Highly recommend!
Enjoyable, interesting Amalfi coast trip. Highly recommended. Well informed by Roberto. Highlights were boat trip at Amalfi and street food lunch in Amalfi. Great opportunity to see different parts of that beautiful coastline with its stunning views.
The Amalfi Coast is beautiful. Each of the towns were quaint and charming in their own way. Our only complaint was was a side effect of the windy road. It wasn’t anyone’s fault but if you suffer from motion sickness, BEWARE! This road (especially in a bus) will leave your stomach churning.
My partner (26 years) and I (24 years) enjoyed the full day bus tour of the Amalfi Coast. The luxury Mercedes bus collected us from a hotel nearby to our accommodation on time and drove the scenic route to Positano, then on to Amalfi and Ravello. The benefit of having a small bus was the ability to traverse narrower paths than larger coaches were able to, and therefore to experience varied and incredible vistas. The bus driver was very capable of navigating the winding terrain and the host was amusing and knowledgeable, and spoke through a well projected microphone to the eight guests on board. There was ample free time afforded in each location, though you could easily spend longer in each (and any less time would have been too short), and it was a good opportunity to see a great deal of the coast in one day. The host provided good recommendations for local eateries and sights worth seeing (or not seeing, as the case may be) and it was good fun to associate with other native English speakers after a long time away from home. If you are confident navigating the public transport system, could afford the time (with respect to transfers and layovers), and doing your own research with respect to the history of the locality, this trip could be done for significantly less money but this tour was a neat way of having the obligation for investigation removed and quickly capitalising on limited time to see the gorgeous coastline and coastal towns.
The weather was perfect, cool but not cold. The crowds were small. Our driver was great and our tour guide was incredible. I highly recommend this trip!
We booked this visit through Viator before leaving the UK. It proved to be an excellent day out, Coach on time, SaSa our guide, was organised, informative and good fun. We visited three small towns which were stunning and also as an addition went on 45 minute coastal boat ride which was also fantastic. Would recommend this trip.
It was a reasonably nice trip of Amalfi Coast. With bus ride and boat ride both thrown in. Guide Roberto was well informed and witty.
Our experience with the full day amalfi coast was wonderful! Our guide Roberto had tons of energy and made the trip very enjoyable for us. We also had the opportunity to experience a one hour boat trip around the Amalfi coast which provided us the opportunity to see things you cannot see from the road trip. The only thing I would suggest is on the return trip the people that were riding on the inside and not able to see the coast line going down we’re not provided the same commentary on the way back. I understand it is a lot to go through everything again but to simply remind people of what we passed on the way down on the way up for those who are now on the coast side would’ve been helpful.
I would recommend the full day along the Amalfi Coast it was an amazing experience the scenery was beautiful and breath-taking!! Roberto, our tour guide was extremely informative and had a great personality.
