Hi Monia,

I meant to write to you last week to thank you for your wonderful service. We had the most wonderful day in Pisa and Florence with Laura. She was so informative and a true joy to be around. We also had a very good time with Patrick in Rome. Your service was top notch. The vans were roomy and clean. The drivers were very knowledgeable and they were always on time. I would definitely recommend your company to anyone traveling to Italy.

Hi Monia -

Not sure if my response email reached you, as I was onboard our ship at the time, and the connection was sporadic.

We are now home, after a lovely cruise through the Mediterranean and across the Atlantic.

Thank you very much for our fabulous experience in Rome!

Our drivers to the hotel from the airport on Nov. 1st, and to Civitavecchia on Nov. 3rd were excellent and friendly.

Our highlight in Rome was on November 2nd, when the excellent Ottavio was our driver for the 8 hours through your beautiful city! He took us everywhere! He knew what times were best for each site, and we saw much more than we ever could have done on our own. Ottavio was very knowledgeable about the city and its history, and a safe driver. He asked us about our interests, and within minutes we felt like he knew exactly what we were hoping to gain from our day. We trusted him to take us where he would recommend for us, and he never let us down. We felt comfortable with him, and cannot thank you enough for your wonderful service. We were very pleased with the experience, and left feeling happy that we dealt with you.

Congratulations to Remo and all of you! Well done!

We will highly recommend your company to friends and relatives, and we will definitely contact you for any future travels to Rome! We threw our coins into the Trevi fountain to ensure our return! :)

I can not say enough about how great our time with Daniele was and how much info & history he gave us and all the places we saw and the good food we had. He was with us on Nov 5 & 6 , You gave us Josepae' for Nov7 and Svorno'

for Nov 8. Everything was GREAT , Excellant satisfaction and just made our trip that much more rewarding. We all say we wouldn't change a thing.Thank you all for our good trip. You also had my brother-in-law, the week after us. Anthony(Tony) Terranova II and his son Anthony III. I think it was in Rome. ( They are from Jackson , Miss.) His grandfather came from Palermo ( Svorno found us a building with the name of TERRANOVA on each corner of the building)--as we were driving to the Monreale. There was only positive feedback from the other guests that was with us.The van insured we saw more than the ship tour could have ever got us to see. THANK YOU.............................................................................

Monia, I received an e-mail from Cruise Holidays today. I apologize for not having e-mailed you sooner about our experience with your company in Florence and Rome. Jet lag set in and I am just now getting back to normal (after two weeks being home.)

We had the pleasure of having Manny as our driver when we took the Florence on Your Own tour. He was a great driver and we were very grateful that he could get us into Florence without us having to walk quite a ways to meet the vehicle. (We were in Florence last year and took a tour offered by the Ship and it seemed that we had to walk quite a bit after the bus let us off and then to get back for the bus to pick us up). So, the way this was handled was much better. Since he was a driver only and not a tour guide, we can not say much more except that he was very kind and courteous to us.

When we were in Rome, we took the Exclusive Best of Rome tour with your company and had Luca as our tour guide. He was fantastic. He went out of his way to please us and to try to get us to see everything that we had on our list. We knew that it was a very good possibility that we would not get into the Vatican Museum, so we could not be that disappointed when in fact we were not able to make it. But, everything else that we wanted to see, Luca made sure that we saw it. He is a very knowledgeable young man and we learned a lot from him. He is also a very personable young man and everyone on our tour liked him. Our driver (I forgot his name) was great and made it so that we did not have to walk a lot.

I have no suggestions to offer to improve on anything. I would recommend your company to anyone that I know coming to Italy.

Thanks so much for making our tours to Florence and Rome something that everyone will remember for a long time.

Thank you for checking up on us. Our driver was Ottavio (I hoped I spelled his name correctly). He is so knowledgeable on Roman history and was very interesting to listen to. We learned so much in a short amount of time. The weather was beautiful & warm the day of our tour. We only had one day in Rome, but saw so much in four hours. Ottavio did a great job of getting us to all the famous sights. Please thank him again from the Minnesota girls for making our first visit to Rome memorable.

Hi Monia

Thanks so much for following up on our DriverinRome experience. It worked out very well and we were very pleased. It was a wonderful way to see so much of Rome in a short period of time without feeling too rushed. We liked Roberto very much - he was very pleasant and very knowledgeable. Thanks for a great experience - we would not hesitate to recommend DriverinRome to friends.

Hi Monia, I want to tell you how much I enjoyed the drivers I had. I miss them! They were wonderful! I will never forget Guiseppi singing during lunch. It was truly one of my favorite memories of the trip.

Roberto was great and provided the best tour possible of Rome in one day. How I wish I had more days! He had great suggestions for us on how to see as much as possible.

I was very happy with both drivers and would recommend your company to anyone. It was money well spent. Thanks so much to both of them and to you.

Monia i want to thank you for your wonderful service given to me on my trip to Italy. The drivers were exceptional. Professional, courteous, knowledgeable and a pleasure to be with. The vehicles were all new, clean and perfect for the four of us. Umberto, Otavio and Max were very helpful and made our trips fantastic. They were all very prompt and helpful. Umberto made us feel like we were all friends and not just customers. He is a wonderful man. If there is anything that I could do for you or your company, here in the US, do not hesitate to ask. I will spread the word to all my friends and neighbors about your wonderful company. You are a man true to his word as everything you promised and proposed worked out to be the best part of our Mediterranean journey. Thank you again. CIAO!

We used Driver In Rome instead of the cruise ship excursion option for our family. We wanted a more personal and flexible tour that would allow us to go at our own pace and not be herded like cattle. We found that we were able to see more sites, get closer to the historic monuments and buildings and have a comfortable, relaxed experience. The price was comparable to the cruise ships group tour, yet we were traveling at our own pace in a Mercedes. Daniele was TERRIFIC! In addition to the standard tourist attractions, he knew the best places to take us to give us the best views, lunch, etc. It was a wonderful day thanks to Daniele. Driver in Rome also arranged for a driver at the ports in Naples/Pompeii and Florence/Pisa. We would HIGHLY recommend Driver In Rome and will use them again when we return to Italy.

Dear Monia,

Regarding our drivers in Italia, this is an excerpt from a message I sent earlier. Perhaps you misplaced it, or someone else retrieved it.

In Roma, we were most pleased to have Manuel as our driver. He was prompt, courteous and delightful. It was a crowded holiday, but he knew all the nooks and crannies to fit us into. His knowledge made the many layers of ancient Rome come alive for us.

Likewise, we enjoyed Guiseppe. He was waiting at the dock on another beautiful Italian day. He showed us Pisa, Florence, San Gimignano, and many countryside roads and villages, just as we asked. He always knew where to park, and everyone along the way seemed to know, and be charmed by him.

Thank you for both drivers. We will definitely recommend Driver in Rome to our friends.

Warm regards,
