We got off at the 1st stop in Positano. We then had trouble getting back on the bus to continue to Amalfi. Everyone queued in a line, when the bus pulled up, it only had a few seats. The bus stopped at the back of the queue and the guide let them queue jump! Disgusting as it's 1 hour until the next bus.
We did manage to get the next bus, but this was only after telling the guide that we were waiting in the previous queue.
Getting back from Amalfi was almost as bad. The queues were again a nightmare. The guide tells the queue to wait on one side of the road, but people start queue jumping again.
We were lucky really, but I can see someone on a previous review wasn't quite so lucky and got stung a very expensive taxi bill.

We decided to go on the hop on hop off tour to Positano from Sorrento. We didn't have time to go all the way to Amalfi, so we thought this shorter trip would be a good option. Our journey there was disappointing as the audio commentary failed to work. We arrived and spent a pleasant 2 hours in this pretty town. Problems occurred when we wanted to get the bus back to Sorrento; all of the buses returning from Amalfi were full and we were left stranded on the side of the road along with many other tourists. After many unanswered questions to the tour representative, and 2 hours waiting time we asked her to book a private taxi that took 18 of us back to Sorrento for 200 euros. This company showed no customer care and I would strongly advise not to get caught out in the same way.

We really enjoyed the open top city tour so we tried the coast to coast tour. Beautiful scenic journey to Amalfi and we stopped off at Positano on the way back. However it was impossible to get back onto a bus back - we missed 3 because they were full and ended up standing on a packed Sita bus to get back to Sorrento. We would advise taking the boat back from Positano (but book early) and not relying on City Sightseeing for this.

We took the "Sorrento and 2 bays" tour, which takes 2 hours. The tour starts at the railway station but also stops at several locations before heading out of town towards the South West. The commentary was good but compared to other tours by the same company in different cities, there just isn't much to see apart from the coastal view (which is fabulous) and the buses are infrequent so the "hop on, hop off" concept doesn't really work. The five minute stop at the village of Termini to take pictures was more than enough . Take is as a two hour orientation tour not the based for a full day.

This trip is worth doing as the open topped bus takes you on a ride through Sorrento and up into the mountains for a good hour and a half. For only a few Euros this was a great way to see the local area and with a high vantage point from the top of the bus, some exceptional views.
