Amalfi Coast with Anthony Buonocore

If you want to experience an amazing tour of the Amalfi Coast, contact Anthony Buonocore at buonocoreanthony@yahoo.it. He is an amazing, funny, knowledgable tourguide that made our day memorable. He had us laughing and singing all the way down the coast. He shared all of the beautiful coastal sights with us, escorted us to an amazing restaurant in Positano where we were wined and dined on top of the mountain overlooking the beautiful village and ocean and gave us a tour of his hometown, Amalfi. We also visited Pompeii. It was a day we will always remember and a true highlight of our 12 day cruise. His vehicle is comfortable, air-conditioned and fit 3 couples with room to spare. His price was reasonable. I would highly recommend him and use him again in a heartbeat. Definitely good times. Wish he toured all of Europe with us.

We arranged for Anthony to meet us in Naples and drive us to our rental apartment in Positano. We visited Pompeii and then spent a day with Anthony driving the Amalfi coast. We appreciated Anthony's knowledge of the area and he took us to places that we wouldn't have known about if we had tried to do this on our own. We were able to make several stops along the way to fully appreciate the stunning views and take pictures. We visited Amalfi, Anthony's hometown, Fiord de Furore, Ravello, a small winery in the hills, and a ceraics manufacturer so our friend was able to find some unique pottery. Anthony has a great sense of humour and is very personable. We would certainly recommend his services -- he kept in touch with us on a regular basis until we arrived in Naples, answering his emails very promptly and arrives when he says he will. We appreciate him giving us some free time to wander during the day, rather than feeling we were being rushed to the next place. If you want personalized service and good company, do consider using Anthony's services.

I am amazed at the previous "glowing" reviews, because we had a very bad experience with Anthony Buonocore on a private tour of the Amalfi Coast. He arrived unorganized with a dirty car. We asked to see just two towns in the seven hours: Ravello and Positano. He gave us 15 minutes in Ravello, insisted that we see his hometown Amalfi (even though we told him we had been there and it wasn't necessary) and then skipped Positano altogether, claiming that he did not have the time to include it. He spent most of the tour on his cellphone and had very little knowledge of, or interest in any of the sites. Towards the end of the tour, he drove about 20 mph because he was way ahead of schedule, probably because we skipped Positano!! Whatever you do, don't book a tour with Buonocore. We would have done better on the bus.

WOW! I'm Shocked! We had an amazing time with him. He took his time, explained everything, took us to Pompeii, Positano, Rivano and Amalfi with time to spare. His car was impeccable and we laughed through the whole day. We even had an amazing meal at Cosentinos in Positano! Can't imagine what could have gone wrong with your tour. I wish we could use him on any tour around the world! He was amazing.

Why do you disagree. I am thinking of booking Anthony Buonocore for our trip and all the reviews are fantastic. What did you not like about them?

Thanks

There were three of us trying to get on a bus to Sorrento together with about 120 people which was more like a cattle truck!! After being pushed and shoved we decided to cut our losses and call for a car to drive us! Anthony Buonocore showed up quickly with a clean car and a wonderful attitude. We were hungry and tired after spending the day in Amalfi which by the way is wonderful! He drove slowly round those crazy corners pointing out the interesting points on the way. Before we arrived in Positano he asked if we were interested in dinner. During my travel around the world sometimes this isn't a great idea....but this time we were in for a treat!!!!!

We ended up on a hilltop in a local restaurant with an incredible view of Positano!! Stunning!! I would say a highlight of our trip!! He left us alone while we ate and drank the local wine! Wouldn't even join us for a drink or a bite! We were then introduced to the 'mama' in the kitchen! It was a fantastic experience from beginning to end. We were given a bottle of lovely red wine by the owner and off we went to Sorrento. THANK YOU ANTHONY...you certainly saved the day!!! Brilliant......
