Date: Sep 17/18

An abslutely magical tour with breathtaking views of the Amalfi Coast. Carmine took us to places that buses couldn't reach and a lunch to die for at a family restaurant with views so stunning you almost shed a tear. 40 years of travelling the world and nothing matches the joy of that vista. Carmine is the perfect host and a second generation guide, literally following in his father's footsteps. Topping it off - a brand new luxury air conditioned minibus just for the 4 of us. Pure Magic !!

Date: Sep 16/18

Without a doubt one of the best tours I've experienced. From the very moment I booked the tour Carmine's communication was great. We were picked up from our hotel in Naples and the adventure began! Carmine is lovely & puts you at ease immediately . He has been a tour guide for 30 years, his father before him. He's incredibly knowledgeable. I won't spoil the 'secrets' but I can tell you that you won't be disappointed, you will see parts that others don't & he gets you to places before the 'masses' descend.

Carmine was an excellent tour guide. Super detailed and friendly. He was very flexible with the schedule and showed us a lot of places which were off the tourist radar which was a nice change. The tour was very well planned with a lot of Scenic drives and enough time at various stops to take pics and enjoy the time in the various points of ravello, Positano and Almafi. The tour ended with a visit to the ruins of pompie. I would recommend Carmine to anyone who wants to see the coast from a locals eyes.

This tour was absolutely amazing!! I cannot say enough good things about Carmine's tour, personality, humor, attentiveness, and professionalism. We saw the most incredible sights, went off the beaten path for sure, and his "secrets" went well beyond my expectations. Our entire group of 4 adults and 2 young children absolutely LOVED his tour. If you want to see the Almalfi Coast, taste AMAZING food, shop, be completely entertained- you must do this tour! Thank you Carmine!!

Wow!!! what a passionate and knowledgeable guide. Carmine stopped at nothing to ensure our 16 family members had a memorable day. We started from our hotel in Salerno via a large bus and a capable driver. We drove to many non touristy parts of the Amalfi coast, Sorrento, visited a limoncello factory, stopped for lemon ice. He provided lots of information about the region and was full of surprises. Besides the views, our incredible lunch on the hillside of Positano was to die for. Thanks! It was amazing

Excellent, excellent tour!!!! I would highly recommend taking a Carmine's tour. He was funny, knowledgeable and definitely kept his promise delivering many surprises. We were traveling with a group of 5 couples and no one was disappointed. Carmine picked us up at our cruise ship, gave us the best experience ever!!! We traveled to the Amalfi Coast on a luxury van with a very experience driver, had a wonderful lunch at Fattoria La Tagliata and enjoyed the beauty of Carmine's home town.

Date: Jun 30/18

This is a fantastic tour! Carmine clearly loves his hometown and the Amalfi Coast. Before leaving the city he drove to some major sites near our hotel. The place Carmine took us to lunch in Positano was amazing. Not only was the food fantastic the view was breathtaking. My 8yo son loved this tour! If you want to shop and sightsee I recommend aiming for 2 cities and not 3. Carmine was very accommodating. I highly recommend this tour. It is off the beaten track and well worth the cost.

My fiance and I decided to do a day trip down to the coast from Rome and we could not have asked for a better experience with Carmine. He was waiting for us at the train station when we arrived and then did a quick 2 hours in Pompeii before heading down to the Amalfi Coast. He is a very good driver and I never once felt unsafe even though the road is very windy, he made lots of stops for us to get beautiful photos outside of the car and took us to the most beautiful and delicious farm-to-table restaurant.

My 17 yo niece and I took Carmine's Secret Tour today and it was magnificent. The Amalfi Coast as well the surrounding region is breathtaking and Carmine was able to show us the very best of it in a very comfortable and accommodating way. I can't give away the details of the secret tour but rest assured that the meal and its location are unlike any you'll find on the tourist route! If you enjoy seeing a place from a local's perspective then you will not go wrong with Carmine. He's a great driver too!

Fabulous tour of Amalfi , due to his experience & his choice of which way to tour to avoid traffic; he was able to show us more than we expected. He also brought us to a pizza restaurant in Sorrento where my daughters were able to make our pizzas from scratch. It was so fun seeing them roll out & toss the dough into the air. Carmine is very flexible & was able to adjust throughout the day to our "Oh can we stop here" He set us up with a great archaeological guide at Pompeii. Focused on making memories

Carmine's Secret tour was fantastic. He is fun, engaging, informative, a very safe driver, and showed us a lot. He accommodated specific requests. The restaurant he brought us to for lunch was fantastic- a real gem and highlight of the trip. A farm-to-table restaurant above Positano, where the farm is all within about 100 metres from the tables, terraced into the hills.

Carmine gave us the most memorable, amazing and unique tour - one that you would never experience by taking a "standard" bus tour. Carmine's "Secrets" tour definitely lived up to its name from beginning to end! We learned a lot about the history of the area, saw spectacular views from all sides, shopped and walked the beautiful Amalfi towns and had the most delicious meal! Definitely the best day of our whole vacation!!! If you are thinking about this type of tour, you must book it with Carmine!!!

Our tour of the Amalfi coast with Carmine Foggia was excellent. Carmine was waiting for us as we disembarked in Naples and greeted us warmly. Carmine's extensive knowledge throughout the tour was most informative. We learned so much at each and every stop. He was very accomadating in stopping at any requested panoramic view to take photos. Our tour ran longer than scheduled yet Carmine never was in a hurry and was professional at all times. A million thanks Carmine for a most memorable tour!

I booked a full day private tour after reading many reviews about Carmine's awesome tours On the Amalfi coast. We were not disappointed this was the best tour we went on in our whole 2 week trip of Italy. We booked the Carmine's coast secret tour And it was amazing! Carmine was so much fun to hang out with for the day he was so charismatic and funny he really made the experience extra special. He knew everything and knew everybody everywhere we went. I called him the mayor of Amalfi. Highly recommend!!

Wow! What an incredible day out. Carmine is simply the best. From start to finish, this tour was full of amazing scenery and wonderful surprises. One highlight was an unexpected visit to Casa Vinicola Ettore Sammarco in Ravello for a wine tasting. We were lucky enough to meet the proprietor who generously shared a sample of his special limoncello -- divine! If you take one tour in Naples/Amalfi, this should be it. Thank you!

Carmine was professional, informative, intelligent, kind and super-fun. His English is superb. He knows the entire area from Naples to Rome, including the Amalfi coast, like the back of his hand. He was waiting for us on the train platform in Naples. Our day started later than expected and we have to cut out part of our day (the Farm to Table Lunch in the Positano hillside) but Carmine knew of a great alternative near Pompeii! Would definitely recommend and look forward to working with him again!!

Magnífico. Es la mejor forma de visitar la costa Amalfitana en un sólo día. En esta excursión pudimos ver Ravello, Amalfi, Positano y Sorrento aunque tal vez sea mejor visitar sólo las tres primeras dedicando algo más de tiempo en cada una. Esto siempre será posible ya que la atención de Carmine es excepcional y siempre está dispuesto a adaptarse a las peticiones del cliente. Nos enseñó lugares con vistas espectaculares y tuvimos posibilidad de hacer fotos siempre que se lo pedimos. Merece la pena.

TOURSBYLOCALS RESPONSE: Magnificent. It is the best way to visit the Amalfi Coast in a single day. In this excursion we could see Ravello, Amalfi, Positano and Sorrento although perhaps it is better to visit only the first three spending a little more time in each one. This will always be possible since Carmine's attention is exceptional and he is always ready to adapt to the customer's requests. He showed us places with spectacular views and we were able to take photos whenever we asked. Worth.

Carmine was knowledgable, friendly and I enjoyed his company. I most appreciated that he took me to the Amalfi Coast inland over the high country. Not only was I able to see the beautiful scenery but it meant we entered via Rafallo and completed a circuit rather than repeating the route to Naples. The lunch stop high above Positano is the memory of a lifetime, and ridiculously inexpensive. A lovely day.

After researching the internet for several weeks we decided Carmine's secret tour of the Amalfi coast was the best choice for our group of four adults so we went ahead and made the booking! We could not have been happier with the choice we made ... it was absolutely perfect!

Carmine was outstanding. He was an excellent driver, particularly on some treacherous roads along the Amalfi drive. He went out of his way to take us to a small olive oil processing plant and this was an unusual experience for both the adults and the children. And while in both Sorrento and Positano, he left us on our own and was very prompt in meeting us at the agreed upon time. Furthermore, he made certain we returned to the ship in more than adequate time. We would strongly recommend him.

Carmine absolutely loves what he does, within minutes he is able to make you feel at home. The tour avoids the tourist traps and lets you experiencing the coast like a local. We were a group of 6 (mothers, daughters and nieces), and we all agree that it was the best tour of our trip. We had lunch at a family run restaurant, the food the best, and the view amazing. There are some surprises along the way, and it is hard to pick a favorite one. Thank you Carmine for such a wonderful experience!
