“Discover Positano tour with Christine.....amazing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 2, 2011

We took the walking tour in Positano with Christine and were not disappointed. If you are in Positano, you won't want to miss the opportunity. She is so informative about the wonderful little town and her love for Positano is contagious. There is so much history in the town that you would miss if not for her tour. She takes you into some of the local shops and gives you the history of the merchandise that Positano is famous for. Never is there any pressure to buy anything, but when her tour was over, I found myself wanting to run back for some souveniers-mainly the gorgeous pottery. We also make a stop in her husbands deli where you get to sample some amazing foods. Christine's love for and knowlege of Positano is immense. As we walked, people waved to her and hugged her along the way. We have now been home a few weeks and would already like to go back to Positano!!!

“Christine's Tour was Incredible- A MUST for anyone traveling to Positano”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2011

My new husband and I traveled to Italy for our honeymoon. We joined Christine for an afternoon walking tour in Positano. I found Christine's information by a random google search and thought I would take a chance and contact her. She was very gracious and accommodating from our initial contact, even offering a private walking tour outside of her normal time frame. When we met Christine, she had arranged for tastings and sightseeing, filling us in with historical details and facts about everything along the way. My husband and I have very minimal information about Positano, but after meeting our key to the city, Christine, we have agreed that Positano is one of our favorite places in the world and would not miss visiting it over and over again in the future. I would recommend wearing comfortable shoes and bringing a camera. I would also recommend staying longer than we did- we were unfortunately only there for a night, and after everything Christine showed us we could have easily enjoyed several more days. Starting a visit to Positano with Christine's walking tour is the best thing I can advise to maximize your stay and to learn the ins and outs of this coastal city.

“Christine gave us out favorite tour in the rain.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 7, 2010

It was raining on the chilly November morning when we met with Christine for our private 3 hour tour. She greeted us with open arms but with the news that the tasting people were sick. A gracious offered was made to cancel at that last minute because of our general unfortunate luck. However, we were all troppers and made the trek through this lovely, overall wealthy town with a rich history.

Christine focussed the tour on the local human experience -- both modern and historical. We had fun scouting local products (later returning to shop, shop, shop). The purpose was to teach us about local industry in context of shops with one-of-a-kind wears -- like a handpainted ceramics store featuring the works of local artists, and a place where designers wove their own (wrinkle-free) linen in the basement. Or what about the local fishermen? Every opportunity was taken to communicate the town's complex history -- especially at the magnificent church.

Finally, Christine came up with ideas for us to carry on with the rest of our rainy day. We ended up at an end of season taxi driver party (don't ask) with singing, dancing, and a coastal culinary delight. Christine knew everyone in town and they adored her.

We heard about and experienced Positano new and old. Perfect.

“A great taste of the local lifestyle in Positano”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 5, 2010

Christine took my husband & I on a private tour of Positano & we had a wonderful morning. The tour is a relaxing stroll through the streets of Positano & involves a great variety of experiences - town history, shopping, tasting local produce, information on local wines & local stories. Christine is a lovely person & not only is very informative but clearly enjoys history and loves the town of Positano. We continue to use her advice as we travel through Italy - especially regarding the do's & don't of how to drink coffee the Italian way :) Thanks Christine - best wishes for yours & Vincenzo's future. Meg & Mark

“A great mixture to get to know and love Positano”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 8, 2010

Check to see availability for joining in on Christine Ornelas' walking tour of Positano. It lasts about 2 1/2 hours. She takes you into the Church, gives shopping hints and discount coupons, tells about fantastic gelato and limoncello, and -- best of all -- stops off at her husband's butcher shop for a feast of tasting olives, cheeses, wines, lemons, meats, etc.
