From start to finish this was an amazing day. Francesco was a wonderful skipper, very accommodating, with good English making for an excellent tour guide. The boat itself was a perfect size for 6 of us, with plenty of room and very clean. At such a reasonable price (per person between 6 it was close to what is charged for a public tour) I would recommend Nicanto day tours to anyone, and can guarantee it will be an experience they will always remember. I will be sure to book again if I am back in Sorrento.

“Fantastic day for the family”
Reviewed September 18, 2013

I organised this charter by email for my husband's 40th brithday. Captain Francesco's suggested itinerary for a day trip to Positano sounded perfect (we had already toured Capri), with stops for swimming along the way there and back. I had a further email confirmation a couple of days before the trip confirming the expected weather conditions and that the trip could indeed go ahead (thank goodness!).
We found Francesco easily enough in the Marina with his emailed instructions. Francesco was a perfect gentleman - polite, good with the children and was a good, informative guide to the sites along the sea front. He even organised a lovely birthday cake which made the day perfect. With 2 young children (5 and 7), I had been slightly worried about how they would be on the sea for so many hours but they were absolutely fine. They were clambering around the moving boat with ease and enjoyed hanging their legs over the front of the boat as it travelled.
The boat was gorgeous - spacious, clean, comfortable, towels and mini-bar included, with shade over the rear seating area. A fresh-water hose shower at the back dive platform was very handy after a dip in the sea before changing for disembarking in Positano for a few hours of shopping and lunch.
On the way back to Sorrento, we stopped for a swim in the Bagni della Regina Giovanna which was absolutely lovely - the children had no hesitation in jumping off the back of the boat with their rubber rings. If they had been older, I am sure Francesco would have accommodated us with more stops for swimming but at their age, 2 stops were appropriate - they were very tired once we got back to Sorrento after a fantastic, unforgettable day out.
If you are looking for a private boat charter, I would highly recommend a day out with Capt. Francesco on the Nonna Sandra.

“A Day We Will Always Remember”
Reviewed September 11, 2013

It was my husbands birthday so for a surprise i booked a chartered boat for a trip around the Amalfi coastline with family. What an amazing day, we were greeted by our skipper the lovely Francesco who was most informative for the duration of our journey, Francesco was so helpful and saw to our every need. The boat was clean and well equipped with snorkels and rings for those who were not so confident in the water. Refreshments onboard were a treat we were made to feel like royalty. Francesco was always prompt and very helpful with a reply when organising our trip. The day was everything we could of asked for and more. We were only in Sorrento for the weekend but i couldnt think of a better way to spend it than out at sea, the day was really relaxing and Francesco was the perfect host. Many thanks.

“A wonderful complete day”
Reviewed June 25, 2013

We spent a wonderfull day with friends and Capitano Francesco. Everything in the excursion was perfect. Francesco is a great skipper and a friendly coast connaisseur. The "Nonna Sandra" is a smart boat, save and confortable. Francesco and his boat are a perfect combination to enjoy a fantastic sea day

I just realized that I never wrote a review of our trip with Francesco . Last summer, my husband, our daughter and myself spent the day on the Nonna Sandra. We met Francesco in Sorrento and began our day by heading towards Capri. After a stop to go swimming in the grotto, we headed toward Positano. We were dropped off there and spent a few hours shopping and having lunch. Then, we continued along the Amalfi coast before turning back home. Francesco is the absolute best!!! He was kind and extremely informative. The Nonna Sandra was beautiful and a delight to be on. We highly recommend a boat excursion with Francesco. The outing was the high point of our trip to Italy.
