Your private driver will greet you at your accommodation, after a brief presentation you will be accompanied to the luxurious minivan where our staff will offer you every comfort you need. After that they will give you important information about the tour and the places that you are going to visit.
Our first step is Pisa, an important city of the Tuscany region. Once a Roman Empire’s colony, then an important commercial port, the city of Pisa is better known for hosting one of the symbol of Italy abroad: “La torre pendente di Pisa” (The leaning tower of Pisa), originally the bell tower of the Cathedral is now more famous than the original building thanks to its leaning-on-a-side characteristic. It is located in the so-called “Campo dei miracoli”, a wide plaza where you can find other sites too, such as the Cathedral, the cemetery and the baptistery. A magical place that definitely does worth a visit. Don’t miss the chance to take a traditional picture of you holding the tower, or get creative, don’t forget to show us your pictures.
We will then visit another Tuscanian important city: Lucca. This town used to be a stronghold, its high walls are still there standing up and surrounding the city. Don’t forget to visit other important places like “Torre Guinigi”, a high tower which at the top has a small garden “Il giardino pensile”, or the “Piazza dell’Anfiteatro” a plaza built using the original design of a roman amphitheatre. The walls, the peebled streets, the churches, the architecture of the palaces which reminds of ancient times, walking along the streets of this town will be like living the lives of fantasy book characters.
Before leaving your private driver please agree upon the time to leave. Then the driver will recommend a suitable time to get back to your hotel after this memorable day!

We had the wonderful opportunity to explore the stunning Amalfi Coast with tour guide Giovanni (or as he introduced himself – John) on 14 September 2015.
Right from the outset when he met us as Napoli train station, I got a sense that it was going to be a fun day as John exuded personality plus and had the ability to make you feel comfortable in his presence, even though we had only just met him.
John is passionate about his work and his aim is to ensure his customers have a memorable experience. His commentary reflects his broad knowledge of the area and his singing abilities aren’t too shabby either.
We were locked into a tight travel schedule, with only a day to spare and the staff at Lovely Amalfi Tours were very obliging in accommodating our needs. I would highly recommend Lovely Amalfi Tours to anyone who is looking for a tour company that provides an exceptional service.
Thank you Giovanni, it was a magic day --- we will be back one day.

I had read a lot about which company to go with prior to our cruise through the Mediterranean. I'm very pleased that we went with Lovely Amalfi Tours. Enrico was the lucky one to guide us around and my wife and I had such a great day around Sorrento, Positano and Ravello (the highlight if the day was lunch at Graal Restaurant ). Unbelievable food and the view....wow! Enrico was incredibly knowledgable, funny and friendly...and he can sing....oh sol a mio with gusto!.. thankyou for a memorable day we will cherish.

Had an amazing tour with our driver and guide Vincenzo. Vincenzo was prompt, extremely informative and polite
which made our day one not to forget. He took us to the best view points for photos, allowed the right amount of time in Positano, Amalfi and Ravello for us to enjoy. He selected a delicious restaurant in Amalfi on the waterfront for us and the price was perfect. We really enjoyed all our conversations with Vinni and certainly a day we won't forget.

If you want to see the true Amalfi coast there is no one better to help you explore its jaw dropping beauty than Giovanni, our wonderful, authentic Italian guide. Travelling with my best friend, he tailored the day to meet everything on our wish list. From gorgeous photo opportunities along the Coastline to sharing a delicious meal under the vines in a very lovely, family run winery on Vesuvius; we spent the whole day enjoying hls great knowledge of the area and wonderful hospitality. He also treated us to the best lemon Granita in the whole of Italy. Felt like we had spent the day with a friiend; laughing for much of it. A truly memorable day we will cherish forever. We will happily recommend him and the Lovely Amalfi Tours to all our mates down under! P.S If you ask him; he will even treat you to a song or 2.
We had a wonderful day with Giovanni. He took us to Positano, Sorrento and Herculenium. We were a group of 4 and the van was very comfortable. Giovanni is very knowledgeable and he went beyond what was necessary to make us happy. We will recommend him for anyone who wants to visit the area. Pascualle, Francesco, Simona LaMamona and Liza

Cruise Ship Excursion - July 2015
Enrico really made this trip very special. He was extremely accommodating to the diverse group of people we had from our Cruise Ship. One family wanted to see Sorrento, another Positano, and another Pompeii. He graciously accommodated us all. It was a fantastic trip, with lots of laughs and smiles.
A very special day with a superb guide!

My husband booked a tour of Positano, Sorrento, & Pompeii with Lovely Amalfi Coast Tours after finding them on Trip Advisor. This was our first tour on a week long cruise, so we weren't sure what to expect. Our drivers were Giovanni and Gaetano, who were friendly, knowledgeable, professional, and made our day truly special. It was a national holiday the day we went and Giovanni and Gaetano arranged the day so we never got stuck in traffic. It seemed that every location we went to was not crowded when we arrived, but was very crowded when we were leaving. This made our day and experience, all more enjoyable.
One example, they arranged for us to have lunch at a nice location in Sorrento. Our table was all set when we arrived and we were treated like royalty. They stopped along the way to allow us to take photos of scenic routes and recommended a great place to buy limoncello.
I would highly recommend this company as this was the best part of our trip. It made us want to return to the Amalfi Coast one day.
