This trip was a dream. Everything was organized and easy from picking up the tickets to getting to all the sites on the island. Our guide Michele was hilarious and was like a stand up act improvising on the spot to cater to the guests on the tour. We covered so much ground but there was just enough time for everything. I met people on this tour I will remember the rest of my life. It was just fantastic. This is a must do if you are in the area of Naples.

Beautiful island with a great guide Tiziana. She told us about the legends of the island and we discovered so fantastic places. Bring some extra cash, because there are some fun additional activities that can be done during you free time in a few of the towns.
