Genuine Lemon Tour

We really enjoyed this tour. It was a great experience at a local, family-run, organic farm. It was a very unique experience and we learned a lot about the citrus fruits that grow here. I don’t normally like limoncello that much, but the organic limoncello they make here was very good and tasted so much better than anything I’ve tried before, I had to buy a bottle to take home!

My daughter and I had the pleasure of meeting Joanna today at her Amalfi Historical Lemon Garden. The family history she shared about what goes into having a thriving lemon garden for years was so inspiring. A lot goes into growing healthy and organic lemons. We tasted limoncello, fresh lemonade and a lemon cake. All so delicious. The views from her garden were breathtaking!

AMAZING! Out of all the tours done in the amalfi coast this was our highlight. The garden is so beautiful with views of the coast and city of Amalfi. We were a small a group and had an amazing tour learning about the different citruses that are grown on the family farm. The tasting was delicious and the quality was the best we have had. Highly recommend this tour, a must do when on the Amalfi coast!!

This tour was one of the absolute highlights of our trip. Not only was it fun learning more about Amalfi, the agricultural history and lemons but the tour is hosted by the family of the property. Giovanna was very personable and made the tour fun, educational and interactive. The tour was capped off by our tour group enjoying a dessert prepared by Joanna’s mother, refreshing lemonade and limoncello. This allowed everyone in our group to get to know each other from all parts of the world while enjoying the most spectacular view. I’m so glad we took this tour and got to meet Giovanna.

Joana was a great host and explained everything about the organic lemons they are growing over more generations. It was amazing to see and watch the love they give to their trees and their huge garden. We also had the chance to try a lemon cake, limoncello and lemon soda, which the family made themselves. So sweet to meet the family members. Joana answered all the questions we had and we definitely recommend this wonderful, authentic tour in the heart of Amalfi. The lemons taste spectacular! You should definitely book this tour to see and get to know not only all about lemons but also Joanas family and their desire to organic farming.

My husband and I were lucky enough to have our own private tour with Giovanna of her family owned farm. The passion and commitment her family puts into their 100% organic farm is evident. It was wonderful to learn so much about the history and art of caring for the gardens and produce. Highly highly recommend!

This was a fantastic tour. Giovanna explained all of the nuances of organic lemon and citrus farming and on top of that the scenic view and delicious samples made from their farm were outstanding. It was one of the best tours I've ever been on and I highly recommend it.

Genuine Lemon Tour

This was easily one of my favorite tour experiences ever. Amalfi Historical Garden is an organic lemon farm on the cliffs of Amalfi proper behind the main port of the city. It is a farm that can tie its original roots back to the 11th century over 1000 years ago when it most likely produced grapes. Now, they are primarily focused on citrus (lemons and oranges). You do a short hike up the sides of the cliff which is very scenic on a bricked path to the garden gates and then get to see all of the beautiful lemon trees inside and sit for a sample of products made with their organic lemons. Honestly I've never tasted such a pure lemon. Many of these lemons our guide told us are native to the Amalfi coast and can only be grown there. Thank you to Giovanna for an amazing experience. I will never forget it.

Maybe the most interesting and beautiful part of our trip to Italy. Giovanna was extremely kind with a great story of her own. Interacting with her, you will come to feel a part of something very special by helping keep this family business running and by supporting natural growing practices for a better Earth. Our tour ended with a picturesque view of the trees and a slice of Giovanna's mother's homemade cake, fresh lemonade, and limoncello. We even got to meet her mother, father and sister briefly. It's a true family affair. Travel is a wonderful way to meet and learn about the experiences of people who live vastly different lives than you do, and this was the most genuine connection we experienced on this trip. Whether you love nature, great views, food, drink, or meeting new people, there's something on this tour for you.

We really enjoyed the tour through the historical garden. Giovanna told us all about the agricultural history of the farm and about the harvest and challenges of growing lemons, oranges and the challenges of running a organic farming business. We liked every aspect of the tour, especially Giovanna and her family (and their cat Silvestro), who where really hospitable and answered all of our questions. The delights after the tour (limoncello, freshly baked cake and candied lemon peel) where magnificent! We strongly recommend the tour to anybody who enjoys nature, a peaceful place in Amalfi, gardening and lemons in any shape or form. Best regards and greetings from Germany, Frederik & Jennifer

We were very lucky and were only able to experience Giovanna's tour as a couple. She led us through the picturesque backdrop and her family's area for almost two hours. We learned in great detail how lemons are grown and harvested organically. We were particularly impressed by the trees, some of which are over 100 years old, and the way they are cared for and further developed. You can feel how much love the family puts into growing the lemons. Each new sprout is checked and cared for by hand. very impressive. Afterwards we were able to try the home-made delicacies such as lemonade, limoncello, lemon cake and candied lemons on the beautiful terrace in the middle of the lemon farm and enjoy the peace and quiet away from the hustle and bustle of Amalfi. A truly magical place. Of course we couldn't leave without purchasing a bottle of limoncello. We would like to thank Giovanna for this wonderful experience and the variety of information. We 100% wholeheartedly recommend this experience.

Die Tour war ein besonderes Erlebnis und ein echtes Highlight! Giovanna hat uns ganz viel Einblicke in den Anbau und die Kultur der Zitronen gegeben. Den Abschluss der Tour war ein gedeckter Tisch mit traumhafter Aussicht und der Verkostung von Zitronenkuchen, Zitronenlimonade und natürlich Limoncello - alles homemade. Köstlich :-) Absolte Weiterempfehlung!

The genuine lemon tour is one not to be missed when visiting Amalfi. Giovanna is an amazing guide that is full of passion. You can tell how much much love and hard work goes into this family garden. She clearly explained everything and answered all the questions we had (and there was a lot)! We finished the tour on their beautiful terrace, enjoying the view and wonderful freshly produced lemon products. We highly recommend!

Private Genuine Lemon Tour

My boyfriend and I booked this lemon tour very spur of the moment, not knowing what to expect. We were looking for something fun to do as we visited the town of Amalfi. I can speak for both us when I say we were blown away by the experience and would recommend it to anyone visiting the Amalfi Coast. Giovanna greeted us with a big smile and walked us to her family's lemon farm where she thoroughly explained the lemon growing process by walking us through the gardens and pointing out different lemons. We were able to ask many questions throughout and we were impressed by how knowledgeable and passionate she was about her family business. After the tour of the lemon trees and garden, Giovanna brought us to the terrace where she and her family lives and served us the most delicious homemade ‘delicato’ lemon cake, lemonade and limoncello. We met her father and sister as well, who were both such genuine, lovely people! We really enjoyed the tour and the intimate setting and learned so much. Thank you Giovanna and family!

Lemon Tour & Aperitivo

I recently had the pleasure of participating in a Lemon Tour with an aperitivo, and it was truly a delightful experience! The tour through the lemon garden was not only informative but also visually stunning, surrounded by lush greenery and a breathtaking view perched over Amalfi and the sea. Our guide shared fascinating insights into the cultivation and history of the lemon grove, making the tour both educational and engaging. The highlight for me was the aperitivo session, where we got to savor delicious lemon drinks, Italian finger food, and snacks. The combination of fresh lemonade and locally sourced appetizers created a perfect blend of flavors that perfectly captured the essence of the Amalfi Coast! The overall atmosphere was relaxed, and the staff's hospitality added to the enjoyment of the day. I highly recommend this Lemon Tour with aperitivo for anyone looking to immerse themselves in the beauty of a typical lemon garden while indulging in delightful local flavors. It's a unique and memorable experience that shouldn't be missed!

I have already been to the Amalfi Coast and had taken part in a cooking class experience elsewhere: it was amazing! Anyway, this one at the Historical Garden is absolutely the best! It cannot be compared because it has all it takes to make you fall madly in love: sea view, mountain view, vegetable garden, lemon garden, high-quality ingredients, chef & staff with obsessive attention to details and beauty, lots of fun and good wine!
