“The Amalfi Tour with ICNOS Adventures is still vivid in our minds and one of the highlights of Italy.
The outstanding things about the tour were:
The friendly, knowledgeable and very caring tour guide that we had. A pleasure to be with. He made the effort to spend extra time with the group and gave extra information about the walks. The walks were spectacular and in many places breath taking. Although some walks were challenging, this was communicated pre tour and we made sure that we had an adequate level of fitness before we started. The coast line and the vistas were outstanding. The selection of hotels was excellent. Very comfortable with friendly staff. The locality of the hotels allowed for easy access to the local area. Breakfasts were very good providing a nutritional start to the day. Restaurants for lunch were positioned with panoramic views of the coast which added to the experience. The one at Ravello was mind blowing. I still look at the photographs now in awe. Suggestions for dinner, which we took and all the group came on were fine examples of local cuisines. The stay in the monastery and the dinners was a highlight. Very friendly and relaxing. Wasn’t long into the tour that we were feeling that we belonged to a big family were everyone looked out for each other. This made it a very personable and a comfortable week. Transport arrangements to and from Napoli and throughout the tour were well thought-out with professional drivers. This made us relaxed and confident. Marcello, once again thankyou for such a memorable experience. If we tour Italy again we will certainly contact you.
Cheers from Balty and Karen Balange.”
“Walking the Amalfi Coast & Sorrento Peninsula” privately guided walking tour – Sept 2012
“Our group of 12 booked theself-guided Jewels of the Amalfi tour through ICNOS following a friend´s recommendation last year to celebrate important birthdays in our lives. The group included two families, the age ranging from 16 to 50 years. The trip had a couple of extras because it included dinners most evenings as well as two extra nights in Sorrento to enable us to visit Pompei and to experience the long-Friday, including the march which takes place that evening in Sorrento, and therefore lasted 9 nights in mid-April 2014. From our first contact with Marcello at ICNOS by email it became apparent that ICNOS operates very professionally. All communication, invoices and printed-materials with directions/information was of a high standard and included necessary as well as added valuable information. To make a long story short: Once we arrived, all organisation via ICNOS was first class. It speaks to ICNOS-staff eye for details that in all the numerous guidelines and endless waypoints we received upon arrival to guide every turn on the way… The walks offerered manyunforgettable viewpoints and visits to beautiful small towns and villages such as Ravello, Pogerola and Nocelle, as well as a scenic walk around Capri. Mid-April proved to be a good time with all sorts of weather, since the main tourist season had not yet begun. Wear good walking boots and expect some heavy rainfall in the mountains. Those who prefer more sun and warm temperatures should probable travel during the summer. The extra-days in Sorrento were also wonderful. We recommend renting a guide for viewing Pompei since the site is much larger than most travellers anticipate. Marcello from ICNOS made contact by telephone several times during our travels to ensure that our trip was proceeding as planned. The jewels of the Amalfi coast are in our judgement certainly among the treasures of Italy. We can recommend the Jewels of the Amalfi tour and the service of ICNOS without any hesitation.
Engilbert Sigurdsson on behalf of the group”
