We had our hotel arrange for a driver from Naples down to Amalfi which cost 100 euros.

Have you asked your hotel? Rick on one of his shows hired a private driver, is there anything in RS books on this?

I always recommend that you ask your hotel if they have a land-partner agency. That company has a huge incentive to make sure you are a happy customer. We got to charge our two car-and-driver jobs, including our departure transfer to Naples rail station, to our hotel bill.

Edit: You didn't mention it, but having a driver is not the same as having a guide. As I note in the link above, for a first-time, general-interest traveler, our driver was as much as we needed. I could argue that the Green Grotto he recommended was not as good as I hoped, but it was not "poor". Does his brother-in-law run it? I don't know.

We did this last summer with Joe Banana Limos. They have a funny name, but are a very well regarded, professional company with safe, friendly drivers. We used them first for an all-day cruise excursion in 2019 and then again for several tours out of Sorrento in 2021. We honestly can't recommend them highly enough - and are signed up again with them for a tour next month. :)

I encourage you to check out their well-earned reviews on TripAdvisor. Have a great trip!

We just left Sorrento and used Top Excursion Sorrento as well. Giovani was excellent to work with... very responsive, and our driver Miguel was fantastic. We used him for transfer to/from Napoli Centrale to Sorrento, as well as, a full day tour of the Amalfi Coast. Highly recommend!

We have a day trip from Sorrento to the Amalfi coast booked for later this month using Mondo Guide Tours as recommended in Rick’s book. They provide small group tours and even have a special website for Rick Steve’s clients.
