““Fantastic Private Day Tour of Amalfi Coast with Anthony Buonocore of Amalfitransfer.com””
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013 NEW
This was the second time we used Anthony for a day trip through the Amalfi Coast. The first time was two years ago when on a Mediterranean cruise. We were going to be in the area another day on a most recent cruise. After our first day two years ago, we felt that Anthony with his charming personality and keen knowledge of the coast, was the perfect person to take us through this beautiful area again. This time we wanted to experience the Amalfi Coast from a non-tourist perspective, and Anthony did just that for us. He picked us up from our cruise ship exactly on time in a Mercedes mini-bus. In one day, we visited a small cheese factory that has been passed through the family for the past 75 years. The mozarella cheese tasted amazing. We watched the cheeses being made and talked with the owners with Anthony as our translator.. He took us to the home of a woman who sold peppers, onions, grapes and other fruit in the front of her home. We went to a small lemoncello and liquor company, had a snack in a beautiful local bar overlooking the coast and near Sophia Lauren's beautiful home. We walked through the gardens at Revello, had an absolutely sumptuous lunch at a small restaurant on a street not often even passed by tourists, and ate at an umbrellaed table with beautiful orange and yellow checked table cloth overlooking the coast. We visited the grotto esmeralda, visited a ceramic factory as well as spent some time near the town of Amalfi, and took pictures in positano. By the end of the day, we felt that we really got an insiders view into life on the Amalfi coast. Anthony took good care of us, is a very careful driver, and has a wonderful friendly personality. He knows people throughout the area, and his engaging personality gave us the opportunity to meet and talk with quite a few locals that day! We did a lot of cost comparing prior to using Anthony and his prices were one-third of the cost of a private day tour if it had been arranged by the cruise ship. We highly recommend Anthony Buonocore of Amalfitransfer.com, and know that if we return to Amalfi again, he will of course, be our #1 person to contact. He can be reached either on Facebook or at Amalfitransfer.com.
