- AnonymousWritten on August 12, 20135.0 - ExcellentThis is the perfect family holiday - great Italian food, perfect weather, friendly family-run hotel and fun days full of activities. It's also a short flight down to Napoli and and easy one hour transfer to the hotel for the week.What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?I think the best part of the holiday is the interaction with the family that run the 2Torri Hotel - Nicola, Giovanni and the leader Eduardo. The kids loved pizza-making, past-making etc in teh hotel kitchen. The leader also arranged trips to a craft-making shop and also a local mozzarella-making farm. These were all little extras that you wouldn't normally get if you organised the holiday yourself.What did you think of your group leader?Eduardo is the star of the holiday. He knows everyone on the Amalfi coast and can fix any problem. The kids loved Eduardo and he is a genuine people person. He even joined in the football match with the kids - so we had an Italian in the team!Â Do you have any advice for potential travellers?I would say this is a very relaxing holiday and the kids will love the pool at the hotel, whenever there is some down town. Don't worry, you can relax in the sun and keep an eye on them at the same time.Take note that this is an expensive place for tourists and the Exodus holiday includes most essentials. However, if you do decide to go eat in the cafe or restaurants in Capri or Positano then expect London prices or more. However, we full-board on most days so just have a budget for ice-creams and a few extra snacks!Â Is there anything else you would like to add?There is a reason why this is such a popular holiday - it really covers all the bases for an active holiday. It's also great to stay away from the hustle and bustle of the coast as Bomerano is a lovely friendly village, with local shops and ice-cream parlours. During the hot summer it's also cooler up in the hills. It's also great that most of the travel up and down the coast is by relaxing ferries, from Amalfi to Capri, Positano etc. Last but not least, do you know any kids that don't like pasta, pizza and ice cream! If the kids are happy, you'll be happy!
- AnonymousWritten on August 12, 20135.0 - ExcellentThis is a great introduction to small-group holidays with lots of elements sure to appeal to families. There was time to swim on most of the days either at the hotel pool or at a beach and this was popular with the children in the group I joined.What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?My family loved the section of 'The Walk of the Gods' and the lunch that day.Â The views were fantastic and the lunch was lovely. The water-taxi trips gave us great views of the coastline and a chance to appreciate its beauty while avoiding the twists and turns on the roads. One of the highlights for my son was making his own pizza in the hotel and he talks about it often now we're back home.What did you think of your group leader?Our group leader Eduardo was born in the area and knows it and the people well.Â He likes people and is happy to take suggestions for changes to the finer details. The trip included some opportunities you'd need local links for eg to see local people at their work making cheese.Do you have any advice for potential travellers?The younger children seemed to struggle with the late dinners and/or late nights. Some were very fractious as the day went on. The hotel dinners started at 8pm so families might like to know this before they book.Is there anything else you would like to add?I would recommend this holiday to famillies because it has lots of great, fun activities. The hotel rooms were basic but adequate. The hotel staff were great and the food was very good. However, I'd only recommend this holiday to families with younger children if they can cope with long days.
- AnonymousWritten on August 10, 20135.0 - ExcellentThis was a great family holiday. The hotel was family run and extremely friendly with great food. Our tour guide Eduardo was excellent and went the extra mile to make sure we all had a good holiday. The scenery in this area was amazing and there were plenty of activities to keep everyone happy. We travelled with our daughter alone this year and the teenage departure meant she was extremely happy with friends of a similar age.What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?Walking along the "walk of the gods"with the stunning scenery.Â The kid's cooking eveningsÂ What did you think of your group leader?He was extremely knowledgable and always went a little extra for us all. He could strike a deal on anything! He was good fun and spoke extremely good English.Do you have any advice for potential travellers?In July/August the area is extremely hot so be prepared. I would imagine that this holiday would be suitable for all ages of children.
- AnonymousWritten on August 4, 20135.0 - ExcellentBilled as a holiday for families with teenage children this sounded perfect. And it was, in fact all our expectations were exceeded. The billed trips e.g. to Pompei, the 'Walk of the Gods', Vesuvius to name but a few, were well orchestrated and fun, but Eduardo the local guide and host put on some real fun extras, and the hotel staff were great. Making pizza may not sound a lot of fun, but it was for the kids while the adults looked on laughing and drinking the excellent local wine (all you can drink for Euros5). Highly recommend this brilliant holiday for that tricky age group the teenager.What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?We enjoyed Pompei and the guide was amusing and informative. The grown ups loved the (unscheduled) trip to Romello and we were lucky that we arrived at the resort the evening of a wonderful local festival. You should go to that if you have a chance even if you feel knackered from just arriving.What did you think of your group leader?Eduardo Palermo knew EVERYONE. Local but world travelled he had a story for every occasion and laid on extras as he saw fit (like stoppoing off at a limoncello maker that he knew and was open as we walked by). Worked very hard,Â even on his supposed day off and made the trip greatDo you have any advice for potential travellers?We were lucky with the weather but I gather it can get very hot, so watch that.Is there anything else you would like to add?Eduardo has adapted this programme over the years and this sounds a bit feeble but I don't think we would change or add anything
- AnonymousWritten on April 17, 20135.0 - ExcellentAll of the difficult parts of family holidays have been taken care of in this trip. There was no debating about what to do tomorrow or trying to find something special, everything was special and the itinerary made sure there was not too long to fill with your own activities! I also had grown-up time with company in the evening which was lovely.What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?The complete silence for an hour that fell over 4 boys and a girl during the ceramic painting session.Â From boisterous boys (and girly) to concentrated artists in the space of 5 minutes. What did you think of your group leader?Eduardo was a star throughout our entire trip.Â He was like your favourite Grandad and the Pied Piper all in one.Â The children loved him and when naughtiness or tears appeared Eduardo was there before we could put our glass of wine down to sort them out.Do you have any advice for potential travellers?Lots of snacks for the children as it is busy days with not much time for stopping.Â Don't expect time for coffee shops and retail therapy, Eduardo wants to show you as much of his beloved Amalfi Coast as he can in a week.Is there anything else you would like to add?One of our best holidays and will be looking for something similar in the future.Â The children must have enjoyed it as we caught them with the brochure planning their next holiday together.
- AnonymousWritten on April 17, 20133.0 - AverageVery relaxing family tripWhat was the most inspirational moment of your trip?Enjoyed Pompeii and the beautiful villages on the Amalfi coast. The walk of the Gods was fantastic too.What did you think of your group leader?ExcellentDo you have any advice for potential travellers?Travel sickness pills/bands for boats and windy roads.Is there anything else you would like to add?Weather can be misty in spring - hotel is up high so can be much cooler than on the coast.
- AnonymousWritten on March 11, 20135.0 - ExcellentWhat a great trip with lots to do and see! We managed to pack a lot into a week despite the less than clement weather we experienced. The hotel was great even if it doesn't have 5 stars the family who run it are all fantastic and the food is AMAZING!What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?The view from the top of Vesuvius was amazing especially as despite the snow & ice we managed to get up to the crater and enjoy the views in the very welcome sunshine whilst eating our delicious packed lunch!The Amalfi coast was beautiful in the snow and the coastline view from Ravello was stunning even as the rain came down like spaghetti!The kids 'cooking slots' in the kitchens were excellent and now my daughter is converted to gnocchi, a bonus!Â What did you think of your group leader?Eduardo is a fantastic group leader and worked within the limitations that inclement weather and an 'off-peak' Italy threw us! His great knowledge of the area and people there helped enormously especially when we had our day in Naples! He took us around the narrow streets of Naples and we saw aspects of the Neapolitan way of life, even managing to get into the best pizza place in town without having to queue (pure fluke!).He took interest in all of us and even got the kids a football which certainly kept them entertained before supper each night. All in all a lovely guy who took great pride in this area and in ensuring we took away great memories of our trip.Do you have any advice for potential travellers?Bring layers to cover all types of weather (though even the Italians were taken short by the snow!). Bring plenty of cash too as we seemed to spend quite a bit even though there weren't that many opportunities to spend it! Do try & visit Herculaneum as it's a gem even if you don't think you like archeology! We didn't use the audio guides but in hindsight maybe we should have. However, if that doesn't appeal then head into Naples which has the most amazing subterranean tunnels built by the Greeks plus the most amazing pizza place in town!Is there anything else you would like to add?This is a fantastic introduction to this part of Italy and a lot is packed in to the week. It certainly inspires another visit in more clement weather although it was rather nice not having to fight with the crowds as it can get busy later in the year.
- AnonymousWritten on November 25, 20124.0 - GoodA great introduction to the area, with experiences which would be difficult to have as a "normal" tourist. A good variety of activities for everyone. We definitely want to return to the region so we can revisit some of the places with more time!What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?There were several:1) Pompeii - just walking down the streets after our time with the guide, saying "Imagine coming out of this house and going to theÂ bakers next door", now that we knew that's exactly what they were.2) Arriving at Vesuvius after horrendous rain to find the clouds had cleared and we had the full view of both the bay and the crater when we reached the top!3) Doing part of the "Walk of the Gods" and having lunch along the way to the sound of a herd of goats nearby4) The view from the top at Ana Capri - simply stunning!What did you think of your group leader?Suzy was a great leader, particularly with the children! She was able to keep them all going even when energy was flagging and it was amazing how brilliantly they all bonded together - in fact, some days we hardly saw our children. Suzy had a lot of local knowledge and was very keen to show us her favourite places everywhere we went; sometimes it would have been better if she had curtailed her enthusiasm slightly and given us more time to explore at our own pace!Â But overall she was excellent and you certainly couldn't fault her dedication.Do you have any advice for potential travellers?Make sure you have cash rather than thinking you will be able to rely on cards; the only time we paid by card was the final bill at the hotel but we did end upÂ having to findÂ bank ATMs several times. Several places specifically asked for cash when cards were produced, despite having the usual card signsÂ displayed.Â All the families in our group had the same experience. You will need more cash than you might imagine, for example our Capri day cost our family well over 100 Euros and we didn't buy anything in the shops or go on a boat trip.If you go at the end of the season, as we did, be well prepared for rain!If you get the chance to go to Herculaneum, do go - we weren't able to as the weather on our free day was horrendous, but the walking holiday group staying at the same time as us went when the weather was better and said it wasÂ even better than Pompeii.Â Is there anything else you would like to add?We're really glad we went and we all definitely want to go back to the region again - we would revisit Amalfi, Pompeii and Capri and add Herculaneum and Sorrento.
- AnonymousWritten on September 18, 20125.0 - ExcellentWe wanted to see this area of Italy with our two teenage boys and we had a fantastic guide, great family run hotel and superb food.What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?Eduardo makes this trip so special because he knows the area so well, our trip to Capri was amazing and the walk of the God's was stunning.What did you think of your group leader?Eduardo made sure we saw the best of everything on the trip and really looked after us very well. We also had an extra week in Italy, and during that time he made suggestions of where to go, where to eat and sorted out bus transfers for us.Do you have any advice for potential travellers?If you have time whilst waiting for the transfer back on the bus from one of the boat trips, pop into Amalfi town and have a glass of prosecco and watch the sun go down on the Cathedral.Is there anything else you would like to add?This is a beautiful part of Italy and we had some wonderful days out. We had a good group, the children mixed well, as did the adults. It was great fun watching the children making pasta and pizza, I have no idea how we managed to consume so much food, but we did and it was all delicious.
- AnonymousWritten on November 7, 20115.0 - ExcellentIf you are thinking about booking this holiday just do it - you won't regret it.What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?Our 8 year old son would say watching football with the Italian family who owned the hotel! We particularly enjoyed the walk of the gods and the superb barbecue, visiting Pompeii, and swimming in the sea with the beautiful background of Positano.What did you think of your group leader?Excellent. Paula could not have done more for us. She even came with us on her day off to show us round Naples! She was very enthusiastic. She got on well with everyone and ensured we all gelled together. She was very informative and great fun. Paula got on well with the children and ensured that they were well catered for. We would recommend her most highly and would be interested in undertaking other tours she may lead.Do you have any advice for potential travellers?Relax, go with the flow, take lots of cash with you to pay tips etc.Is there anything else you would like to add?This being the first holiday of this type that we had undertaken we did not know quite what to expect. We had a fabulous time with lots of excellent experiences, but also time to relax on the beach. The family that run the hotel were great, meeting everyone's needs, in particular making our 8 year old football mad son part of their family. The food was excellent, with the hotel able to cater for a diverse range of needs and happy to change dishes for children if necessary. If you are thinking of booking this holiday do it - you won't regret it!
