We thoroughly enjoyed our walking tour with Michele. She made the experience friendly and fun and also very informative. She has a wealth of knowledge about the region. I would highly recommend booking this trip.

We had an amazing morning with Michele! The walk gave us breathtaking views of this beautiful area and Michele's knowledge and passion made the experience into a memory to treasure. Had we been staying in Amalfi longer, we would definitely be booking onto one of her other tours.

A nice way to start the day! We walked up in the mountains, saw the paper mill ruins, water falls and scenic views of Amalfi. Michela explained the history of the area and the sights we saw. We even had a special tour of a local’s garden (not actually part of the tour) in which he gave us a few ripe lemons.

Excellent walk through the valley and into the national park. Good insight into the flaura and fauna of the region. Good pace and great to get out of busy Amalfi and into the countryside for the morning

Si vous aimez la nature, la randonnée, la culture, l histoire, des points de vue incroyables, être loin du tourisme de masse, des cascades qui vont marqueront et une atmosphère qui pourrait inspirer plus d un artiste en herbe, faites cette randonnée. Hameaux médiévaux, petites ruelles hors du temps, chemins de pierres ou de terre où vous cueillez des figues fraîches, et des cascades comme en milieu tropical, des ruines de plusieurs siècles... Michèle nous a expliqué l histoire et les anecdotes d Amalfi...et les points de vue sont terribles. Vous croisez des santons( Pastore) au détour d une ruelle... Allez y faites là !!! Je l ai fait avec mes trois enfants et le plus petit a 7ans..." C'est la meilleure randonnée que l on a fait". De beaux souvenirs de cette magnifique région

We didn’t go on the hike with Michele but the woman we went on the hike with was AMAZING sooo wonderful. She taught us a lot and also went at our pace. She felt like a friend more than anything and I loved it.
