We had a wonderful experience in Rome. He took us to so many wonderful places, Trivi Fountain, the Spanish Steps, the statue of Moses, the ruins, the Colossium, and he even found time to get us into the Sistine Chapel and St. Peter's. And to top it all off we even had time for a wonderful lunch in a quiet part of town. He and the driver were both very nice. And we were back to the ship on time.

He did apologize to us for not beinging as talkative as usual but he had just lost his mother the week before, which all us on the tour had experienced.

What we saw and did was more than we would have gotten on any of the tours with the cruise line and we didn't have to be with a crowd of other people. It truly was an enjoyable day.

I would highly recommend your company to other people.

I wanted to say thank you for two wonderful excursions on our recent trip to Italy.

We loved Lauda on our Florence and Pisa tour. She was very informative and a lot of fun.

We really appreciated the umbrellas she had available for us when it rained in Florence.

Roberto was also great for our Rome tour. We got to see almost everything we were hoping

for and we also thank you so much for suggesting the private guide for the Vatican. The line outside

was extremely long and it was raining, so we felt really priviledged to go directly inside.

But we were most thankful for the fact that you returned our camera to us after my husband left in

in Lauda's van. I am sure getting it from Florence to Rome overnight was no easy task.

As promised, I will be writing a review on Cruise Critic, but I am also going to write one for Trip Advisor and

Fodor's.

I told our travel agent who had originally recommended you, that we were so happy she did and to give my

name as a reference to anyone who wanted some feedback about booking tours with you. I will be happy to

give out your name at anytime.

Again, thank you for a wonderful experience in Florence, Pisa and Rome.

Hi Monia,

Thank you for checking in. Our cruise continued on for several days after our visits with you and we did not return until last weekend so I'm sorry it took a little while to get back to you.

We were very pleased with both of our drivers! We felt that using DriverInRome gave us an experience we would not have been able to have on our own or with a larger "commercial" tour such as those arranged through the cruise lines. We were extremely impressed that we did not have to wait in line at any of our destinations including the Vatican!. The drivers were able to get us up close to the sights which was very important given that we were traveling with young children who would not be able to keep up with a lot of walking. They took us to more "local" places and through our conversations, we received a more authentic glimpse into these wonderful areas.

We would not hestitate to recommend your services! Thank you to both Giuseppe and Manny for making these visits so memorable for us!

DRIVER IN ROME was outstanding!! They gave us wonderful advice about purchasing tickets online to the Colossiuem, Roman Forum, etc. before getting to Rome which saved us valuable time. Their driver was very accomodating and knowledgable of the history and importance of all the sites. He even recommended some other places in Rome to visit which were equally impressive. We were able to see everything we wanted and more!!

I highly recommend DRIVER IN ROME!!

My family and I used Driver in Rome for 3 excursions in Italy while on a 12 night cruise. Remo, the owner, was very professional and quite entertaining. The tour guides were professional, spoke English very well and were well-informed guides. We enjoyed the drivers as well. All the vehicles were new, spotless and very comfortable. They even supplied us with water at one of the spots. We were a party of 25 and so it made it very enjoyable for us to do what we wanted to do.

We left our camera on one of the vans during our first excursion and was given the camera back at the the airport when we left for home. We were amazed. Definitely recommend them.

We just returned from a 12 day cruise and we used Driver in Rome at our ports in Rome, Naples and Florence. We also used you for our transfers. What can I say, you guys are amazing. We were a group of 10 and this was our first time to Europe, needless to say, we were a little nervous with our lack of knowledge of the area and the language barrier. Danielle,Monia and Luca took care of all our arrangements via e-mail and once we arrived everything was perfect. The drivers were on time and made us feel so welcome. We also used your service for a tour of Rome, The Vatican, transfers to and from ship, airport and hotel and also in Naples and Florence. The cruise was wonderful, but our time spent with your staff gave us memories that will last a lifetime. We felt like we were a part of the family. Luca and Remo greeted us in Rome, and after a couple of hours with them, we were in love with your city. Our visit to The Vatican the next day went flawless and then we were entertained by Luca, our driver all the way to our port. But before we got to the port, he introduced us to the wonderful taste of Gelatto. He was terrific and were disappointed that he wouldn't be with us in Naples the next day.

In Naples, we were greeted by Massimo and Luca #2. This was the most amazing day, Luca was terrific, not to mention that our teenage girls thought he was adorable and were engaged in everything he said and did. Luca, thank you for showing us the so much of the Amalfi Coast, your passion and knowledge of the area, made this a day we will never forget. Our lunch at da Constantino was unforgettable. I couldn't believe Luca helped serve and also explained the dishes to us. The meal and wine were amazing, and since we had told Luca how much we had enjoyed Lemoncello in Rome, he ended our meal by pouring us ice cold shots of Lemoncello. Maybe we enjoyed it a little too much, because poor Luca had to listen to us singing all the way to Pompeii. Thank you for another incredible day.

When we arrived in Livorno, we were met by your driver and once again had an incredible day with time in Pisa, Florence and an unforgettable wine tasting and lunch.

We were greeting by Remo the next morning and taken to the airport.On the days that we did not us your services, we spent so much time trying to figure out what we were doing and how to get there.

We have told so many fellow cruisers about your comapny and we are so looking forward to coming back to Italy and you will definitely be our first call. Your staff has been incredible, always on time, friendly and professional, knowledgable of all areas. I cannot say enough good things about you. Thank you for giving us memories we will never forget. We left our hearts in Italy and we can't wait to come back.

Driver in Rome is a great company. We have used Danielle and Remo twice and both times we could not have been more pleased. In 2003, we used them three times at various cruise ports for touring. We had on time service and fantastic tours in Florence, Rome and Naples. This summer, 2008, we were back in Italy and engaged Driver in Rome for transportation to and from the port and airport and we also stayed in Remo's Bed and Breakfast in Rome. It was a wonderful experience....we were able to run back and forth into the city of Rome very conveniently. Remo and family took us to the subway and it was a quick trip into the city. Great B and B with wonderful and friendly people. We would highly recommend Driver In Rome for all of your travel needs whether it be transportation, tour guide or accommodations.This is a family run business that aims to please their guests. We will definitely use Driver in Rome in the future and highly recommend them.

Our driver in Rome, Mani was extremely helpful, pleasant andn accomodating - he knew the shortcuts to get us in to the colliseum and the vatican at the times when the lines were shortest and was friendly and knowledable about rome and helped make our day in rome one of the most memorable of our entire cruise.

My family of 18 recently returned from a med cruise on NCL. I booked our transfer/Rome excursion with DriverInRome and I was very pleased with the whole process from pre-booking help, booking,

confirmation, the wonderful transfer/tour and follow-up afterward with Monia, Daniele and the rest of the staff. This is a very professionally run company and the people who work there could not be any nicer or knowledgeable about the sites and history of Italy. They also know how to problem solve when things to go awire. Danielle provided us with 3 comfortable, clean vans for the transfer/tour and the A/C brok down in one of the vans and it was a hot day. We didn't think he would go through the trouble to get another van. However, upon returning to our vans after visiting one of the many sites we saw that day, he had a working A/C van ready for us. This is truly a company that values customer satisfaction. I would highly recommend this company to anyone with high expectations. Thank you Daniele, Palo and Aturro for giving us a memorable experience in Rome.

My friends and I recently cruised on the Carnival Freedom. We used Driver in Rome for airport transfers and for shore excursions out of Naples and Livorno. This was our second time using your services and again we were not disappointed. Your Mercedes vans were clean and comfortable and your tours to the Amalfi Coast and Lucca were the most memorable experiences out of the whole trip.

Our Amalfi driver, Manny, was not only very courteous, knowledgeable, smart and fluent in English (besides handsome!) but he also showed us the sights, stopped at picture spots, pointed out Andrea Bocelli's island retreat, the umbrella pines, and the proper way to pronounce bruschetta! He gave us some time to walk, look around and buy souvenirs and topped it all off by taking us to Luigi's for lunch by that wonderful picture window overlooking Positano! Also the Lucca excursion was a pleasant drive and the driver, Attilio, was waiting for us right in front of the ship exit. He was very nice, patient and helpful, drove us from church to church so we would not have to talk too much, allowed us some time to buy a wonderful gelato and went out of his way to buy me some stamps to send cards to my grandchildren. You did a great job adapting your excursions to our group of grandmothers with not enough time and energy for climbing hills or walking a lot. The drivers dropped us off as close to the sights as humanly possible and picked us up at the promised time. From the first email to Daniele and Monia to my conversation with Remo upon arrival in Rome, dealing with you has again been a delightful experience that I will certainly keep on recommending to my friends. Grazie a tutti!
