Hi Monia, it is two-thirty in the morning here at home and I can't sleep with the time change! We thoroughly enjoyed the tour Marco provided, it was our best tour day by far! He was very knowledgeable and catered to our wishes so we didn't spend much time in museums as we did getting the taste of Rome! My daughter Angie was so excited that she found the leather boots she was looking for while visiting the "Three Coins and a Fountain" stop!!!!

Thanks again, and please extend our sincere thanks to Marco and best wishes to him and his family!!!

The tour was marvelous and Paolo was perfect! I have already referred you to two couples here in the US!

Best wishes!

Caio Monia,

Had to respond to your email right away!

We had a wonderful time.

Your drivers/guides were very knowledgeable, courteous and easily understood.

The vans and buses were clean and gave all a great view (except in Sicily).

We had a van in Sicily that had a full seat in the last row where 3 of my clients could not see any of the sites.

It was a raised seat. They might reconsider using this van for touring a full van of people.

Of course, that was the only complaint….which is excellent.

Daniele was wonderful in helping us re-accommodate my group when the port was changed from Florence.

Please tell him thank you.

I will give a glowing review on your web site once I am settled and will not hesitate to recommend you to other agents and customers.

I must also mention Michelle of Revelation Tours in Nice, that Daniele recommended. He was great and the tour was awesome!

My clients are spoiled now and will never take a cruise tour with the cruise line again.

Thank You so much!

Hello Monia,

Yes, we are home. Thanks for you kind note. I will be happy to comment on the wonderful service your driver/guides furnished our group of six people during our recent visit to Italy.

At our port call in Livorno we shared a van with six other people for a tour of Tuscany. Our guide, Luca, was very accommodating and tried to make sure that we saw as much as possible during our short visit. At his suggestion we stopped Tenuta di Torciano for wine tasting and lunch. This turned out to be one of the highlights of the trip. The owner, Luigi, was very interesting and entertaining. Luca’s tour exceeded all of our expectations.

When our ship arrived into port at Civitavecchia your driver/guide Patrick met us at the pier for our transfer into Rome and some sightseeing. We had requested a visit to Villa Adriana, but had little else in mind to occupy the day. After visiting Adriana, Patrick suggested that we drive to the south of Rome for lunch in Frascati and then visit Rocca di Papa and several other small towns nearby. Our lunch at the Cantina Trinca was fantastic – again this was one of the highlights of the trip. We thoroughly enjoyed the whole day with Patrick and his suggestions made for a perfect tour.

I would not hesitate to recommend your company to friends and relatives planning a trip to Italy. In fact, we have friends that will be sailing out of Rome in September of next year and I will certainly give them your contact information.

Please give Luca and Patrick our best regards and thank them again for such wonderful tours.

We got home safely and had a lovely time in Italy. Thank you for providing a child's car seat at each location.

Luca and Luigi gave a wonderful tour of Rome. Luca went above and beyond carrying the baby stroller (with child in it) up and down the stairs of the Vatican, as he was also our tour guide.We would highly recommend your services to our friends and would use them again if and when we come back to Italy.

Happy Thanksgiving.

I wanted to write and tell you how much your service added to our trip. We had a wonderful time with all 3 of your drivers , in Florence , Rome and Naples. They each added something very special to our trip . I know we enjoyed places we would not have been privy to on our own or on one of the ships tours .I would highly recommend your company to anyone that is going to visit your wonderful country. Thank you so much for making my first trip to Italy so perfect. I look forward to using your service again

Thanks for the follow up. our trip was excellent. for the record, we used private tour groups such as yours in 9 cities. the 2 that you arranged--Florence/Pisa and Rome had BY FAR the best escorts and guides. Everything about them--their command of the English language, their knowledge of the local history and culture, and their overall attitude were a step above any of the guides we were provided with in the other cities. Thanks again

Hello Monia, thank you for your e-mail. We were very pleased with the service we got from driverinrome. Angelo was our driver and he was excellent. Very informative and exceeded our expectations with regards to what we saw on our tour. In fact, the next day we were taking the metro to do some more sightseeing and our son, who is 6 years old, said "Why don't we just call Angelo?". I have already mentioned your company to a friend who is planning a trip to Italy in the summer of 2008! Please tell Angelo that we said "thank you for a great introduction to Rome!".

Hello Monia,

Thanks for the email and yes we finally returned home safely on Tuesday after spending 4 days in Barcelona, seeing yet more sights, ugh! Tired, achy, body now needs a vacation to rest!!!

Have NO complaints about our driver Maximo! He was the cutest, sweetest person Daniele could have sent. He was very thorough in explaining things to us and got us to St. Peter's for the Popes birthday celebration. The hordes of people in Roma that day made traffic a nightmare, but Maximo did tell us it was usually like that everyday. My goodness, worse than Chicago and the streets are too narrow for me!

We loved Roma and everything we saw, only wish we could have had the time to see and do more. Maybe next time in Rome! Who knows?

Would recommend your company to any of our cruise critic.com friends and I will especially make it a point to critique our cruise and add our recommendations for driverinrome!

Best Regards and say hello to Daniele and ask him how he is enjoying his Prison Break Season 1 DVD?,
