1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

We enjoyed the group and hikes. The accommodations were very good. The towns visited and views were great. The boat trip to Capri was special. We definitely saw and experienced the Amalfi Coast! Great trip.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Be prepared to do some walking and climbing while hiking. We averaged more than 14,000 steps per day. It was worth it. Bring good walking shoes, walking sticks, light day pack to carry water, etc. the weather temperature changes from morning to afternoon, so plan on layers of clothing. Euros are preferred. ATMs are scarce. Credit cards not accepted by the smaller vendors along the streets of the towns. Sorrento is the best place to buy your Amalfi Coast souvenirs (pricing and variety).

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Staying at an Agritourism facility was unique and well done. The local family was a joy to be around. The food was healthy, very good and plentiful. Enjoyed the two cooking demonstrations as well. A lot of fun.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

Exceeded our expectations. Will do another tour with this company. Great value.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

The Walk of the Gods and the people I met on this tour.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Bring a bathing cap!! You are not allowed to swim in the pool without one which I thought was strange coming from Australia. They do supply them though. Be fit, the walking is sometimes very strenuous and many steps. Not a tour for the beginner.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Yes, our guide was alway on the look out for rubbish and taking it back with her on our hikes.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

This was a wonderful trip, the hotel was nice, larger than I thought and the quality of the rooms seemed to differ quite a bit. The food mostly was good but the owners are working to a budget so keep this in mind.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

The day on the farm learning about how the lemon farm operates and how to make limoncello and having a go at making our own pizzas in the family oven. My husband would say the best part was the home cooked food - amazing every night! Our guide Elisabetta was also fantastic and made everyone feel welcome and went over and above in looking after us - especially when my husband got sick.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Breakfast is basic, recommend bringing a few cereal bars if you like a big breakfast. Also bring copious amounts of bug spray - as a few of us received a few nasty mosquito bites :)

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Yes we did - us staying at the aguriturismo means that the family can continue to work on the farm using traditional methods.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

It was fantastic, we learnt a lot, walked down a lot of steps and ate the most wonderful homemade food.
