It was fantastic, our family treasured our experience. And it was The people involved that made it so- Rosa was so informative, so kind , and dynamic. We were made to feel as if we'd met up with an old friend, she is so personable. The family at the farmhouse,where we helped to make cavatelli and had a delicious lunch, were very patient with us!..so down to earth, such a perfect group to have restored this building and brought it back to life in a beautiful way.Farm to table agribusiness done so right!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Catherine for your kind words. I'm very happy you enjoyed this tour as it is one of the most interesting for me. It has been a great day spent together and a great pleasure to meet you. Hope to see you again here one day! :)

Our family had less than a day to spend in Naples after a trekking tour of the Amalfi coast. Rosa did a fantastic job of gaging our energy and hunger level, and our desire to get a bit of Naples history and pop culture. We visited several areas of the historical center of Naples and tried foods we hadn't had the opportunity to taste. Rosa also gave us suggestions based on our interests of other places to visit (the archeological museum which was fabulous) as well as restaurants. Terrific tour!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Michael for your review! :) I'm happy you enjoyed my tour...and my suggestions about the museum and the restaurants. You are a very nice family and time with you simply runs away. Hope to see you again here. A big hug Rosa

What a memorable day at the family farm. We felt so welcome and really enjoyed cooking with the family. This was a really unique way to feel a part of the culture in the area. This would be an amazing experience particularly for a family, the children would enjoy the animals. We were just a couple and enjoyed it just as much. A delicious meal topped off the day. Rosa is super, she has so much knowledge of the area. We will cherish this experience for many years!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Pamela for your review. I'm very happy you enjoyed the tour and the family farm. This is one of the tour that leaves a memory. As you said it's a way to experience our culture in a real way, so I'm very happy when people love it. Thank you again, and see you at your next visit here.

Rosa was exceptionally accommodating, and went out of her way to make this tour work for us. She showed us exactly what we were looking for! She was personable, and just a bucket full of great info about the area. My only complaint is that I had not planned longer in Positano, and therefore could not hire her for twice as long!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you David for your review! :) It was something new for me to organize the tour you were looking for, but it was exciting and a challenge to find the good spots for you. It gave me a new way to look at the area where I usually guide...new eyes! So thank you for your proposition. I'm very happy you enjoyed the day as I did...despite all the steps! I hope to see you again here for a longer time so you can discover other great secret spots :) Rosa

Rosa was great. Smart, well-prepared, funny and knowledgeable. She had done her homework on some areas and sights we wanted especially to see and was ready with all the information we needed to understand the history and importance of what she showed us. We had such a good time that we were a bit late for the next part of our trip. Two days later we saw her leading a tour group on the Amalfi Coast and it was like reuniting with an old friend.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Dennis! In fact preparing the tour for you and Lisa was like waiting for welcoming friends who wanted to discover special places in Naples. It was interesting for me as well. Looking for hidden jewels of Naples like the stairs of Palazzo Mannajuolo, I felt like a child looking for treasures! And what a surprise to meeting you in Amalfi 2 days later…I was sure to meet you again during your stay on the Amalfi coast. It has been a special pleasure to meet you and Lisa, hope to see you again!

If there is another way to make this a better tour I wouldn't know what that could be!!! It was perfect!! Perfetto!! From the tour guide Rosa to the wonderful family at the farm.

We could not have asked for a better day than the one provided by Rosa. The hike was fun and informative. The views were truly awesome. Best of all was the cooking class Rosa arranged for us at a local farm. My wife is gluten-free so Rosa arranged a special menu that included Eggplant Parmigiana. The food and the company were excellent. We would highly recommend Rosa.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Lorne! We spent a great day together. It was a pleasure to share with you my love for this place,I really felt that you were interested in our culture and history, interested in meeting local peolpe and doing special experience. We have many interest in common. You and your wife such nice person that the time runs away. And most of all...you are a great cook! :)

Rosa was excellent. She designed a tour that suited our requirements and took the time to explain our plans for the day. She was very engaging and knowledgeable. She prearranged a lovely local lunch for us along the way using her local connections to prepare a beautiful, organic meal at a small farm in the Mill's Valley. She was also lovely with our 12 year old daughter, looking out for her and keeping her engaged along the way. We spent about 6 hours with Rosa and really enjoyed her company and the tour

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you David! You are such a nice family, it was very easy and natural spend some time with you. And your daughter is so sweet! I'm very happy you enjoyed the places that I think are special on the Amalfi coast as they are out of the touristic route, as well as to meet local people, genuine and generous. I hope you're spending a nice time in the south of Italy and maybe …see you again!

We were a family group of 11 in Amalfi for a family reunion and birthday. Rosa fit in as one of the family. She was knowledgeable, enthusiastic, and flexible. She worked hard to make this and our other two trips with her work for everyone. On this hike, we drove to Ravello and toured the town, then drove to Pontone for lunch and a hike down to Amalfi. the views were spectacular. Rosa is an outstanding guide who goes well beyond what is required to make sure the trip works for everyone.

Best day in Italy! Not only was it the best meal we have had, but Rosa C. exceeded our expectations for a knowledgeable and friendly guide. It was intimate and engaging with breathtaking scenery and a local host who prepared an authentic, home cooked Italian meal in our honor. What a thrill it was. The food was astonishing and the hospitality, even better. A deeply memorable experience. The trek into the Mill Valley and the Iron Valley nature preserve was a side of Italy you will only see with Rosa.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Adam! What a nice day I spent with your nice family! It was such a pleasure see the happiness in all of you enjoying the walk, the nature, the food and the sharing with me and local people. It was really a meeting of two culture plenty of joy.

Though the "walk" was a lot more strenuous that we anticpated, Rosa's professional expertise and abilty to assist a novice trekker was miraculous. She is very knowledgeable in the views,path,surroundings and local history and is the most interesting person to speak with! There were six of us on the walk and we all felt that she connected with each one of us, earning the nickname : Santa Rosa". The trattoria that she took us to in Nocella was beyond fantastic-the view, the food and the wine Fantastic!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Maureen…what a pleasure spend some time with you! You six are very interesting people, really enjoy the time spent with you. About the difficulties I can say that I classified the path "high" in the level activity, but, for some person it's moderate. I've done many time the path with different people and I can really say that the feeling changes depending on what you've done before, what is your experience in trekking. But you've done very well!! Hope to see you again on the Amalfi Coast

We combined two tours that Rosa offers into one full day. Rosa is very knowledgeable and passionate about the Amalfi coast area. We learned a lot about the area in general, as well as the specific places that we toured. The walk through the valley and nature preserve are easy for anyone in reasonably good shape. The walk from Pontone to Ravello requires a bit more stamina, but is not difficult. These sites are beautiful and should not be missed. We highly recommend Rosa as a guide!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Liz. I spent a wonderful day with you. A pleasure met you. I hope to see you again in the future.
