NLG Customer Reviews

  • "Sorrento to Amalfi September"

    Great trip on a beautiful warm sunny day. Going by boat is the best way to see the Amalfi coast, also the fastest. It was easy to book the tickets & find the boat even though there was a cruise ship in & the port was very busy. Our boat was large, clean & the staff were helpful & friendly.
