Can anybody explain exactly what the Amalfi Drive tours with Goldentours or Aponte Viaggi (or any other company, for that matter) includes? Both seem to operate on the same days, and at the same cost of 34 Euros.
I’ve read both websites, and it is still not clear to me where the tour actually stops for a proper visit. For example, I’m not sure whether they stop in Positano, or only pause for a quick photo?
It does seem that the tour stops in both Amalfi and Ravello, but again I’m not sure what is included in the tour price (if anything) once we are in these two places. It looks like there could be a cathedral and/or museum in Amalfi on one of the tours, but is this extra? And in Ravello, it seems there is Villa Rufolo, but again I’m not clear if this is included.
Incidentally, I would usually have been happy to do this trip ourselves from Sorrento via the SITA bus. I understand it would only cost 7.20 Euros each for the 24-hour ticket which would cover all the journeys starting from Sorrento, and including Amalfi to Ravello and back. But I’m starting to get really put off by reading the stories of erratic and packed SITA busses along this route.
I suppose I need to weigh up the comfort and reliability of an organised tour at 34 Euros against a possible chaotic journey at a fifth of the price.
Any help, ideas or other recommendations would be most appreciated.
Oh, by the way, I’m talking about the second week in September, if that makes any difference to how busy public transport might be.
Thank you, in advance.
