Why Take a Private Tour to the Amalfi Coast

With sheer cliff formations, centuries-old villas that seem to spill down rustic mountains, and pastel-coloured fishing villages, the Amalfi Coast boasts a mishmash of history and culture.

Cruising around this part of Italy is like rewinding time, where you can experience opulent mansions once owned by royalty and picturesque beaches that are tucked away in hidden coves. With so much to see and do, it can be overwhelming trying to decide where to start during your time on the Amalfi Coast. But, if you’re looking to dig deep into the area’s fascinating history, learn more about the natural beauty, and discover some of the age-old tales that still imbue the region, taking a private tour of this beautiful stretch of coastline is your best bet!

What sights does a tour cover?

What are the benefits of taking a tour? Why do I need one? A holiday away is meant to be memorable, exciting and most of all fun! But it’s also meant to be a break from the stresses of everyday living and working back home. And whilst planning a holiday is exciting at times, I think we can all agree that it can also be quite stressful and very tiring. Well, that’s why we’re here to take away some of that stress. Rather than hurriedly searching the endless results of google to find the best deal, location, transport etc. let us do some of the leg work by booking all this for you. Simply give us your dates and any other requirements, and we’ll do the rest.

Despite being a tour company ourselves, we don’t want to be too biased, so we’re going to give you an overview of what any tour should cover on the Amalfi Coast. As whilst we’d love you to book with us, the most important thing is that you have the best holiday possible, and one that’s right for you. Throughout the majority of Amalfi coast tours, you’ll be able to experience the coastline by land and sea. Knowledgeable guides will take you to many of the lesser-known places, including sheltered bays rife with colourful marine life and charming villages that seem to be stuck in times gone by. As you go, you can explore towns steeped in history, like Positano, that is home to a painting of the Virgin Mary that forms an integral part of Italy’s pirate past. You can also experience the glitz and glam of Capri, a luxurious island loved by celebs from far and wide, and discover incredible natural wonders, like the Blue Grotto, a cave that’s waters are impossibly blue thanks to the underwater crevice which illuminates the cave with dazzling sunlight.

A tour of Amalfi Coast’s beaches

For many visitors, a trip to the Amalfi Coast is a must-do if they find themselves in this part of Italy – and why wouldn’t it be? The area has something for everyone.

There are beaches swathed in pristine white sands, pebbly shorelines flanked by family eateries and charming cafes, and jutting rock formations that date back thousands and thousands of years. Getting to see everything the Amalfi Coast has to offer is no easy task. With so much to see and do, it’s easy to miss something if you don’t know it’s there. This is why a private tour is a great way to explore the area. Not only will you get to see some of the coastline’s more hidden spots, your guide will know the quickest way to get to places and the right times of day to go and see certain attractions so you can avoid the crowds and get a deeper insight into the Amalfi Coast and its surroundings. Some of the beach towns you’ll visit include; Positano; Ravello; Amalfi and more!
