Food Tour

The following tour is for all of the persons who want to know how the best food products in the world are made, and how the real southern Italian food taste like. Are you ready for a all inclusive and culturally enrichment experience?

The tour will begin after you meet your private driver who will be easily recognizable due to the sign on which will be written your name and our agency logo at the port where your cruise ship will be docked. After a brief presentation your private driver will accompany you at the luxurious vehicle where and will offer you every comfort you need. Furthermore he will give you important information about the travel and the places that you are going to visit. 

We are going to begin with one of the best and most exported italian product: The extra virgin olive oil. This ingridients, which is at the base of the Italian cuisine, is as good as healthy. Full of anti-oxidants and vitamins it’s a very gift of the nature, as long as you don’t exaggerate. The olive oil we are visting is in Massa Lubrense, a small city that we are going to reach by a special Italian Veichle, the “Ape Car”. During this brief tour you will see the olive trees from which the olives used for making the oil are collected. Expertises will explain you all the process, from the gathering to the transformation in this yellow liquid gold that you can taste with fresh baked bread.

After this tasteful activity there will be another equally mouthwatering. You will find out how different kind of cheeses, such as “Mozzarella” and “Provolone del Monaco” have been made for 300 years so far. These two cheeses have been made for centuries by the same family who owned farms on the “Monti Lattari”. Especially Mozzarella cheese whose name comes from the way of producing it, in Italian the ancient name of Mozzarella was “Mozza”, which comes from the verb “Mozzare” in English it means “Slice”, “Cut” or “Divide”. But these farmers will show you better all the process, without forgetting the most important part, tasting the products.

Our next activity is a very funny experience: The Pizza School. Each one of you have had the chance to taste pizza in your life, some of them have even eaten the original one. But have you ever made one by your own? An expert Pizzaiolo will teach you every secret, from the ingridients, how to make the pizza, to the right way too cook eat.This is a class where you don’t need to take notes, nor you have to worry about homework, because your only homework is to eat the Pizza you just made. You don’t have to blame the dog this time!

Our last activity is one of the best ones: the tasting of the famous Italian liquor, the “Limoncello”. This beverage is made with alcool, lemons, sugar and water, and it is amazing. Even here you will be showned how it is produced and there will be tastings as well. If there is time left at the end of this experience, you will have the chance to visit the city of Sorrento as well.

Before leaving your private driver please agree upon the time to leave in order to reach your cruise ship on time. During the ride to the port, you can reminisce about your lovely day!

Pompeii and Herculaneum Private Tour This was our first time doing an independent outside of our cruise line. What a BLAST! Eight of us went off to Pompeii and Herculaneum with Giovanni (our driver).8 hour tour. This was the highlight of our 19 day Western Mediterranean Cruise. ( Age group) in our 60's. We like ruins and history and the private guide gave us a great descriptive picture of how life was like at the time of Mt Vesuvius' eruption. We all agreed that we enjoyed Herculaneum more because it was more emotional and intimate. We all immediately hit it off with Giovanni, and had lots of laughs. We would highly recommend this company, guide and definitely the driver! We would not hesitate about using their services again. Thanks Giovanni for making our tour so memorable. The Crazy Canadians! We won't forget you.

Simple Amazing...Bellissimo We just returned from our incredible trip in Italy and France. There were so many highlights to talk about but I wanted to say how incredibly pleased we were with Lovely Amalfi Coast Tours and most importantly with Giovanni, our driver. He has the most incredibly warm personality, speaks wonderful english (although I spoke italian with him) and has such in depth knowledge of the places we visited. He drove us to Pompeii first where we spent three hours, then off to Positano where he booked us in at a restaurant at the top of the cliff that had the most incredible view!! Our group spent a little too much time at the restaurant drinking wonderful wines and eating a most delicious meal, my favorite of the whole trip...once we were done we went to Beautiful Sorrento where we had a 90 minute opportunity to shop and eat gelato and simple do what we wanted. He was articulate and funny the entire time. His driving skills were amazing albeit we had a few moments going up the mountains where I didnt think we were going to make it (narrow winding roads) but he handeled them so well. We hope that if you use this company you may have the pleasure of having Giovanni as your driver/guide. It will be an incredible experience. I was on a shared tour by the way and met my fellow cruisers on Cruise Critic.com I recommend this site to get info on cruising and more importanly to meet others and share tours such as this one. We were 7 people and got along famously! Grazie Giovanni..ti auguro un bella vita!!!

We booked a private tour of the Amalfi Coast from our cruise ship - Naples Port. Our driver, Giovanni, was great -- informative, great personality, and experienced driver, punctual, and spoke English very well. He was very knowledgeable and provided recommedations when asked. He provided a schedule for each stop which gave us plenty of time to enjoy the sites we wanted to take in this trip. Since this was not our first time to Naples, we requested to go to Ravello, Amalfi, Positano and Sorrento. The scenery was spectacular

from Montreal

We arrived at the port of Salerno on Serenade of the Seas and was picked up by Giovanni. What an amazing tour guide! Very knowledgeable, friendly and polite throughout the entire tour. He stopped for photos and gave us enough time to spent in Positano and Sorrento and even recommended a good restaurant in Sorrento. From our booking via internet until our drop off at the port again was just so professional! Can recommend them 110%!!

from Seattle

This was the best tour of our 12 day mediterranean cruise. Our driver was soooo knowledgable and got us to both Herculeum (better than Pompei) and Pompei before the crowds did. He then took us to this AMAZING lunch on Mt. Vesuvius (cantina) and we had the best authentic meal of the trip. We got to get a private winery tour and taste amazing wine. Next we hiked up Mt. Vesuvius... it was so much fun! I would recommend this to anyone my husband and I had a blast!

“A day with Lovely Amalfi Tours in Pompeii, Sorrento and Positano” On our Eastern Mediterranean cruise, we had a day in Naples and decided to take in part of the Amalfi Coast and see Pompeii again. With advice of the company and the skillful driving by Giovanni, we were able to do both and return to the ship on time, despite the traffic delays. Because of our smaller vehicle, we climbed to heights in Positano that buses couldn't reach and had our favourite lunch of the trip at Trattoria La Tagliata--magnificent views, delicious home-style Italian food and very friendly staff! We hired a guide to meet us in Pompeii (arranged by Lovely Amalfi Tours). Our excellent driver Giovanni was very considerate and friendly. We enjoyed our day with him in Naples area and would recommend the tour service to anyone.
