Everything was wonderful! We had so much fun! The tours were so much better than the cruise excursions. Luca and Samantha in Florence - Luca was funny and Samantha is so knowledgeable! Very personable as well. Massimo and Remo in Rome - Massimo was very gracious and Remo was hilarious. What incredible memories he made! Luca and Santiago in Naples - Luca was even more funny. Santiago was super! He nearly broke his back trying to pick up my child and lift him over the fence so that he did not have to walk through the brothel in Pompeii. Someone needs to tell him that American kids weigh more than Italian kids! I have already recommended Driver In Rome to everyone at home! Thanks again!

Dear Monia, our experience with your company was wonderful! When we arrived at the airport our driver/tour guide, Giorgio, was waiting for us. After taking us to the hotel to check in, we began our tour. Giorgio had an excellent command of the English language. He was also well versed in the history of Rome and enjoyed sharing this information with us. After our long flight from the United States, this was the perfect way for us to see the highlights of Rome before beginning our cruise the following day. Our driver that day was GianCarlo. He arrived promptly at the hotel and took us to our ship. Both men were very courteous and helpful. Congratulations on a well organized operation with a very competent staff. I would recommend your company to anyone without reservation. Thank you for helping us make the most of our brief stay in Rome.

Hi Monia, just wanted to let you know that your services in Rome for my small group were outstanding! Remo was terrific with all of his "inside" information (especially for our first Italian feast at Marcello's)! Our guide in Rome (Monica) was so knowledgeable with history facts both at the Vatican and Colosseum - she totally amazed us. We covered all the sights we had hoped to in such a short ime and were delighted with our tours. On our return to the Port we were able to stop at a terrific market (thanks to Remo's effort to adjust schedules) and enjoyed the local merchants at work. Thank you so much for working with me in preparation for this trip. All in all the staff at Driver In Rome was extremely professional and knowledgeable - I will recommend them highly to my colleagues and to all interested in private tours while in Rome.

Monia, we are back in the USA after a wonderful trip to Europe. We were very happy with your drivers -- very knowledgeable and personable. We would definitely recommend you to our friends and will certainly do so in the future. We are planning future trips to Europe (dont have dates set as yet) and will definitely contact you for drivers.

Dear Monia, we couldn't have been more pleased with your services. Claudio Franco the driver in Sicily was wonderful as was our driver on the Amalfi Coast tour. They also picked up us in beautiful cars. They were both dressed professionally, acted professionally, and were very knowledgeable about their specific tours and were exceptionally accommodating to our every need. Both recommended outstanding lunch restaurants and took care of making that reservation for us. We were truly treated like movie stars. The private vatican tour guide, Georgianna, was fabulous. Her knowledge of the treasures of the vatican were superior. We both learned so much from the tour. The three hours flew by. She was professional and an absolute delight to be with. So as you can gather by now, we would sing your praises to everybody we come in contact with that is going to Italy. You run a first rate operation - especially with you prompt responses to any and all of our inquiries. By far you have made our trip an experience of a lifetime. We hope we have occasion in the future to use your services again. Bravo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thank you so much, love Joe Ferrone and Diane Rufolo

In the Fodors 2006 Italy guidebook, there was a full page add for Driverinrome. I decided to follow through with this company and did some research online. They had good reviews, so we booked. The did all our transfers (there were 8 of us plus 14 suitcases and we needed 3 transfers), and 3 tours, Vatican City, Naples, Livorno, and Rome. We had two tours scheduled with before we left home. Then we scheduled an additional two tours while onboard ship via the ship's internet system. Everything went without a hitch. They met us when they said they would, were totally professional and very gracious. Some went out of their way to show us some things not on the itinerary. The only thing that is problematic for some is that they do not accept credit cards, except to hold a reservation. However, they will accept cash, either Euros or US, personal checks and traveller's checks. I would recommend this company without any reservations at all.

happyI wanted to tell you my daughter and I had the most wonderful time with my family in Castelbottaccio and it was because of your driver GianCarlo who was so helpful and gracious interpreting for us. He was kind and patient and very knowledgeable. Also, your emails with all my questions were answered immediately. I just can't thank all of you enough. With warmest regards, Carole and Renee

Daniele, this is just a brief note to say thanks very much to you and your people as they were friendly, prompt, courteous, knowledgeable and did a great job but most importantly made our experience in Rome most enjoyable. We had only one disappointment and that had nothing to do with your company. I was under the impression that our audience with the Pope would be with a much smaller crowd. This came from a meeting I had with a Canadian group several years ago who said that they had a group of 15-20 people and then your picture shaking hands with the Pope and along side it the instructions for obtaining the audience tickets. I thought hey perhaps a small group. It turned out that there were 12-15 thousand people there - what a mob! Believe me if anyone asks about tours, guides etc. in Italy your company will get a very very positive endorsement. Overall our trip was great - we're back to the old routine and all is well with the world. Hope all is well for you and yours.

We had a wonderful trip to see your beautiful country and our tour in Rome with DRIVERINROME was one of the highlights. Our driver, Paulo, was very interesting and informative and willing to take us to see whatever we most wanted to see. Our only disappointment was that we had pre-purchased our tickets to the Colleseum and were not able to get in due to a strike by the workers. I don't know if they will reimburse us for that or not. We did, however, get to go and see it on the outside, plus all the other amazing sites in Rome. If we did a future trip such as this, we would definitely use DRIVERINROME for tours to Florence and Naples as well. Thank you so much for providing this wonderful service. I will be passing this information along to friends who may go to Italy!!

I just wanted to let your know that we were very pleased with our experience with our driver. He was on time and provided us with lots of information on the way. You were recommended to us by some friends who had used you and would recommend you again to anyone. Thank you for making our time enjoyable.
