Recommendation for a guide/private tour of the Amalfi Coast from Naples

We're taking a Mediterranean Cruise this summer that will be stopping in Naples for the day. We'd like to do some sort of minibus or taxi guided tour of the Amalfi coast (I'm trying to avoid any sort of cruise sponsored mega tour). Any recommendations of a guide/tour company that will pick us up at dock in Naples and do a guided tour of the Amalfi drive and back? Dropping us off in Sorento at the ferry terminal is OK too. If the cost is right, I'd prefera private tour just for two of us, but we're OK possibly splitting the fare with another couple if need be.

Have you looked at Cruise Critic dot com? They have LOTS of information on this topic. Here's where you can sign up for a Roll Call for your sailing, so you can join up with others looking to hire a driver: http://tinyurl.com/ap7h55m Here's their Italy Ports forum, where you can read about drivers others have used: http://tinyurl.com/bwqtmhk. If you haven't already done so, you should pick up a copy of Rick Steves Mediterranean Ports (the second edition was recently published). It will have lots of information that will be invaluable for your cruise.

Hi Marcus. You might try Francesco Marrapese (email address is info@francescomarrapese.com and web site is www.francescomarrapese.com). He is highly rated on Trip Advisor and in my communication with him, he has always replied promptly and professionally. I can't wait for our Amalfi Coast day trip with Francesco. You might also try APTours (www.aptours.it). This company's rates seemed really good and they seem really popular with people coming in for the day from their cruise ship.
