If I could rate Nicola’s tours higher than a 5, I would! Please, please do yourself a favor and have him be your guide if you’re in the Cilento Region. His boat tours are phenomenal and the cooking class (which takes place at his parents house), is one of a kind. Thank you, Nicola, for making our trip to Castellabate unforgettable!

If you are looking for a typical experience in Cilento I highly recommend the boat tour with Masaniello Tourists. Nicola, the guide and manager, is simply fabulous and he is part of making the experience unique. I recommend the full day so you can just relax, swim and have delicious local food without thinking about the time.

I am half Italian and knew the area from before but decided to go for this boat trip with some Norwegian friends to celebrate a birthday. Italian or foreigner, you will love it!

Nicola from Masaniello Touris gave us a unique experience. He is an openminded, funny and warm host. You can really feel the passion he has for his work and that inspired us all. When we arrived at the harbor we didn't know what to expect. We had an amazing day from beginning to end. Part of the experience was not knowing all the details, so I will be short. The weather was perfect and the food was exquisite. Nicola gave us an unforgettable day and for that we are forever grateful.

We will definitely do this again.

Nicola, thank you so much! You made our stay in Italy a real vacation with everything one could hope for.
For those who are considering booking a trip with Masaniello Tourist: We highly recommend it! We participated in a half-day boat trip to Licosa Island and a cooking class with Nicola's mother. Everything was exquisite!
The water around Licosa Island is one of the most beautiful I have swam in (I am kind of a swimmer, so I've seen my share of waters, including in the Caribbean and many places in Europe) and Nicola makes your stay on the boat worthwhile. We were on the boat with a baby of three months and two two-year old children and always felt not only safe but well cared for. Also, Nicola brought a surprise snack for us (more like a full meal, I won't say more in order not to ruin the surprise :-)) which was so delicious!
The cooking class was a true glimpse into the life of Nicola's family - it is amazing that he shares this truly private experience with his guests. His mother is breathtakingly efficient in the kitchen and cooks absolutely deliciously. At the same time, everyone is so friendly. Nicola told us his story of how he developed his business and one can tell that he is following his heart in doing this job - you will enjoy the experience, you will learn to cook some new things, and you will enjoy two meals from what you cook... one right then and there with the family, and one from the left-overs (there will be many!) which you get to take home. We indulged and thoroughly enjoyed the little Italian culinary adventure. also highly recommended!
Thanks again to everyone involved and lucky those of you who still get to go! I'd do any of these activities again in a heartbeat.
