Christine is lovely! We had been in Positano for over a week before we did this tour, but boy we wish we had done it earlier. The tour takes around 3 hours and shows you things that only a local would know. You learn about the Churches, the Sirens, the history of the town, about the best local shops from clothing to jewelry to ceramics to the sandal maker for Jackie Kennedy to the best of all, the FOOD! Christine is an expat who is married to a local, Vincenzo, whose family owns the Enoteca Cuomo. You stop in here for tastings of some of the best products that the Campania Region has to offer. This place is an amazing find that we walked past a half dozen times. It's a must for any gourmand, especially if you have a kitchen. She even shows you where the best gelato is and then you do a tasting of the local's favorite limoncello. Forget the guidebooks and spend your money here! Thanks, Christine for a wonderful day!

“Great value!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 12, 2010

We booked this tour through advice on Trip Advisor, and were so glad we did. We were staying in Amalfi, and this tour sounded ideal for getting to know as much of Positano as possible in one day. Christine is charming and extremely knowledgable of all things Positano. It was a very enjoyable, eclectic tour combining culture,history,gastronomy and shoppping; ( Christine will custom the tour to your interests as well). Christine intersperses her talk with fact,legend and local customs. She works independently but is able to get her clients discounts at certain stores without accepting commission from any of them. As said on other reviews, a highlight was a visit to her husband's family's enoteca, where we enjoyed tasting samples of their sausage and salami, as well as bruschetta,provolone cheese and olives. We would recommend this tour if this is your first visit to Positano, whether you are staying here or just visiting for the day.

“Pure Italy . . . view, food, friendly . . . you'll never forget it.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 12, 2010

From the moment you arrive in Positano you never want to leave. It is magical and majestic. Explore the streets, the restaurants,the gelato (!) and the beach area and take lots of pictures to try to capture this forever in your brain. Visit nearby Ravello and go to the two estates (small fee). You will see the Amalfi Coast from high up and you can't get enough of it. Make sure you visit the Hotel Caruso and ask to see the Infinity Pool. . . wow! Day trip to Sorrento, Capri, and Pompeii. This would be a perfect honeymoon or second honeymoorn spot. We went for our 25th Anniversary and hope (and pray) that we will be blessed enough to return some day.

We really enjoyed our walking tour of Positano. Christine did such a great job, giving us the history of Positano and taking us to the best local shops for food, unique clothing, etc. (you also get taste tests and discounts at each place you stop on the tour!). We really felt like we got a great background on Positano, the tour helped us maximize our stay. We highly recommend it!

“A throughly enjoyable tour of the real positano !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 4, 2010

Christine is a lovely, knowledgeable guide as she shares the real treasures of Positano with you. We learned so much , and her enthusiasm about living in Positano brings a "tourist town" alive . The cheeses and meat at her family's shop were so good! And the limoncello refreshing on a hot day. Dont miss this tour if you are going to Positano. Thanks Christine!
