Dear Monia, our drivers in Messina/Etna/Taormina and Florence/Pisa were terrific. They were very knowledgeable about the area, friendly and very considerate of my mother. We were greeted on time and returned to the ship on time. This was a first trip to Italy for my mother and me, and your drivers made it memorable.

Best regards,

Dana

Hi Daniele, I just wanted to let you know I recevied an email from my Father in Law stating what a wonderful time they had in Rome and in Livorno. My Father In Law said the airport pickup went extremely well and their drivers to Tivoli for lunch at Sabilla and the driver who took them to Castello Banfi were excellent. Thank you for dong such a wonderful job for them. They are still traveling so when they come home I will get further details.

Dear Monia, we can honestly tell you that your service was exceptional. We enjoyed both of your drivers... We felt safe, secure, and they were on time. Paulo was an exceptional guide, with so much knowledge. I give you an A! Now that I'm home, I am faced with so much work and family developments, at this time I can not elaborate further. In the next few weeks, I will send a letter to all of our agencies suggesting they use your company whenever possible. I will be in touch with you whenever we are in Rome, and likewise if you and your husband are ever in California let me know.

Dear Monia, thank you so much! We had 2 wonderful days with Roberto. The first in Rome and then in Naples, Pompeii, Positano and Sorrento. He is very knowledgeable and an excellent driver. It was especially smart that he was able to give us a cell phone in case we needed to call him while we were in the Vatican Museum and then when we were at Pompeii. The other couples that joined us were also impressed with the service and it was less expensive (with 4 people) than the excursions that the ship offered. I found you through TripAdvisor on the Iternet. I will recommend your service on Cruisecritic.com and TripAdvisor when we get home. Right now, we are visiting with my cousins in Milano, then we are visiting other cousins in Germany so we won't be home until October 24th.

Daniele, your people were great. There were polite, courteous, knowledgeable etc. but most of all they were friendly and fun to be with. From the time you picked us up at the airport till you took us to the train station it was a pleasure to be in your hands. Paulo was a great tour guide, took us everywhere and then some, couldn't have had a better time, Max was a walking encyclopedia when it came to talking about the Vatican museum and the Vatican as a whole. We enjoyed it all. If ever we are asked to recommend a great tour and guide company in Rome we will gladly shout Driver in Rome. Thanks again for showing us your country. Best to you all, regards Ed McGonagle

We were absolutely thrilled with our Rome tour. Paolo was very knowledgeable, friendly, funny, careful, and very accomodating. We probably saw three times as much as any other tour and did it in comfort--he even took us to a shop or two. Great time!! Would do it again and recommend your company to anyone. Thanks!

Our family recently returned from a trip to Rome and a cruise with stops in Italy and Spain. We had a wonderful time, and a good part of the reason for that was Driver in Rome (driverinrome.com). There were 13 of us in our family, and our ages ranged from grandparents to parents to a 6,3,2,1 and 10(month) year old. We were a large, age-varied group, but Driverinrome was wonderful to us. They picked us up at the airport in Rome, picked up the rest of our family at the hotel, and took us touring (Catacombs of St Priscilla). They then found food for all the hungry, cranky family. The next day they picked us up and took us to the Vatican, where they arranged for a guide. On various other days, they took us anywhere we wanted to go (although sometimes we would just get in the mini-bus and ask the guide to take us somewhere interesting.) They found great restaurants and pizza places for our large family. I recommend Giovanni Carlo as a driver--patient and knowledgeable. Driverinrome also arranged for tours for us in Florence/Pisa/Tuscany/Chianti, and Sicily. The drivers and guides picked us up at the ship and took us touring. In Florence/Pisa, we had a wonderful day--and did so much. Saw David at the Academia, the Uffuzi, all the sights in Florence (did I mention that we were driven to all these places and sights--when the tour buses had to park way far away?), 2 gelato stops, lunch, the leaning tower and many other sights in about 7 hours. The ship tour took 11 hours and they saw the COPY of David and the leaning tower. Driverinrome has special passes (especially in Florence) and they can go where most cars cannot. They can drive us to and park right outside the Academia and Uffezi, for example, and wait for us. In Sicily we went on a beautiful scenic drive to the top of a mountain and explored Erecia --a medieval city, then (at our request) went to the beach to swim in the Mediterranean. Daniele--the owner of Driverinrome, communicated (email and phone) with us often before our trip. We had many questions, and he was knowledgeable and nice. He had suggestions and was a great help. They found car seats for the babies, and his vans and minibusses were comfortable, clean,cool, and perfect for us. The drivers and guides were patient and answered all our questions. We were able to see so much, without wasting time. We all highly recommend our new friends, Driverinrome as a wonderful way to see Italy.

We fell in love with Rome and did not want it to end! I don't think that we could have had any better drivers and/or have asked for more of a wonderful private tour with Max. He made our visit to the Vatican and the Colosseum a fantastic experience one that neither of us will forget. I hope that you will forward my email address to him as we would like to stay in touch. We are thinking about coming back to Rome for a longer stay and would like to meet up with him is possible. I have told everyone about the excellent treatment that we received by DRIVERINROME and have told them that they MUST use this company when they visit. Thank you again for making the first part of our vacation so enjoyable.

Monia, I can't thank Drivers in Rome enough. Our tours were magnificent! I will highly recommend your company to all my friends and post on Cruise Critic. Sam, Remo and Santiago were wonderful! Everyone in our group thanked my sister and I over and over again for finding you guys. Constantino's restaurant and Tenuta Torciano were delicious. I loved Italy and can't wait to come back. Remo thanks for entertaining us with all your jokes and music and for reorganizing our tour when the Coliseum was closed in the morning.
