Fabrizio, thank you a thousand times!! You made our trip from Rome to Sorrento and back and everything in between the most wonderful experience we've ever had. You arranged all our excursions - Vesuvius/Pompeii, Capri and Amalfi coast towns - in comfortable vans with great drivers (you!) and guides (you!) and that's not easy for a group of 14. Everyone was totally happy, you went above and beyond to the extraordinary! I especially want to thank you for the effort you put into finding my friend Nancy's grandfather's home town and taking us there. What an exceptional finish to a trip that was memorable. We all hope to see you and use your services on a future trip and will wholeheartedly recommend you to our friends. Again, mille grazie! Fabrizio, thank you a thousand times!!

Fabrizio, We are now home in the United States remembering what a wonderful time we had during our trip to Italy. I wanted to say thank you again to you for not only being an amazing driver and guide but also a person. You went above and beyond anything I had expected. Even the last day when our airline canceled our flight. You were so accommodating and truly made our trip so much more enjoyable, right down to the rosary beads you managed to find for my sister-in-law. May God bless you and your family!
Gordon and Cheryl Baumback - Canada
We wish to thank you for the excellent service your company gave us on our trip to Sorrento. The trip to Sorrento started perfectly with Carmine picking us up from the Grand Princess in Civitavecchia and dropping us off at our Hotel in Sorrento. It was so relaxing putting our bags in the Van, sitting back and enjoying the scenery. A much better option than fighting with the crowds on the trains.
Fabrizio was the perfect host for our excursions to Pompeii, Herculaneum and Mt. Vesuvius. He arranged for an English speaking guide (also named Fabrizio) who was wonderful. Our next day, was driving the Almalfi Coast. What a great way to see this area, in a private car, with a very knowledgeable driver (Fabrizio) who took us to the out of the way spots to get that perfect picture. He took us to a Restaurant that served the type of meal we were looking for and then waited for us to enjoy our meal with no time limitations.
Our final trip with Fabrizio was our transfer back to the Rome airport.
We would highly recommend your company and especially Fabrizio for the excellent way we were treated and the professional way all of our requests were taken care of. Thanks again.
Deb & Shawn Arbuthnot - Carnival Dream
sorry this is so late coming to you we both thought the other already wrote you back in October. We enjoyed our trip with you down the Amalfi coast and to Pompeii when we were on our cruise. You did an amazing job of showing us your homeland and will always cherish these memories that you provided us. We tell everybody what a beautiful day we had and what an amazing guide you were and how you took your time and worked with us to provide this experience. Thank you again for our wonderful day you will always be remembered to us. We wish you and your family a very merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year...
Carol O'Gorman - Seaborne Spirit
I just wanted to thank-you for such a great tour. All of us enjoyed it and were bragging to the others on the ship. It was a pleasure to meet you and I will certainly recommend you for any tours. Thanks again for the plate. I found the perfect place for it and will always have fond memories. Thanks again
Sherrie Gott & Dan Sutton - Brilliance of the Seas
As promised, I'm writing so that the world will know what an absolutely perfect day you arranged for us out of Naples in Sep 09. Sherrie & I have decided that considering all the many excursions over 8 cruises that we've taken over the past few years, your Amalfi coast trip is at the top of our list, with the others following far behind. Every aspect of the trip contributed to its being an extraordinary day for us. Words fail me as I think of ways to describe the beauty of the amazing coast. Plus you were so accommodating whenever we wanted to stop and you knew about all the especially beautiful stops along the way. Your upbringing in the area served you well as you described the area to us. Then there was the food at Da Constantino Ristorante. We're still talking about the pasta and the tomato/matzarello cheese salad, with a shot of limoncello to finish it off. For anyone taking a trip to Naples or close by, our advice is forget Pompeii or other advertised museum sites if you run short on time, but whatever you do, do NOT miss the chance to have Fabrizio or his partner show you his breathtakingly beautiful homeland and country side. It is a treat for the senses in every imaginable way. Thank you Fabrizio and here's hoping we'll meet again someday.
Jim & Linda Grimshaw - SeaDream
I just want to thank you and Tony for a terrific day on Amalfi coast. That day was truly the highlight of our two week trip to Italy and Greece. Tony is the best and we learned and saw more than we had hoped. Thanks too for the commemorative plate. We'll place it prominently with our travel mementos. If you have a client that wants a personal reference you are welcome to give them my email address. Thanks Again. Jim & Linda Grimshaw
Brent R. Becker - Ruby Princess
Dear Fabrizio and Claudio,
Can't thank you enough for your great service on our recent excursion from our cruise ship to Naples. Claudio was outstanding. He was prompt and waiting for us when the 6 of us exited the ship for our excursion. The Mercedes Van was extremely comfortable for the 6 of us on our tour of Almalfi Coast and Pompei. This is a tour that we will never forget! I would highly recommend this tour to anyone as the best way to see these destinations. Claudio went above his services by calling stores to find my sunglasses that I had left and found them after calling 15 stores! Again thank you!
Sincerely, The Beckers.
Rojas, Allen, Estudillo - Mexico , DF.
Solo para agradecer y felicitarlos por el excelente servicio y atencion que tuvieron con nosotros durante nuestro viaje por la fascinante Italia.
Desde nuestra recepcion en el muelle de Napoles, y la visita guiada a Erculano, y Pompeya, asi como el transportarnos a las ciudades de Sorrento y Capri para descubrir lugares maravillosos, hasta nuestro destino final en Positano. Nuevamente muchas gracias por hacer de nuestro viaje inolvidable.
Richard, Coleen, Caitlin, Brigette & Kelsey O'Leary - Ruby Princess
We wish you and your lovely family the merriest of Christmas'. Our visit with you this past summer was truly the highlight of all of our visits to Italy. We look forward to returning to your area and experiencing the coast in the way you described...awesome! Richard continues to reminisce on the wonderful granita you helped him to get that day...the wonderful meal we had and the wonderful stories we heard from you. You are a very special person and we feel very blessed to have met you. Until we meet again... Merry Christmas!
Michele e Thai Puzzo - Ruby Princess
Ciao Fabrizio, sono Michele e Thai da Toronto Canada. Siamo stati insieme con i nostri amici Americani tre settimane fa (Rayne, Matt, Andria, Tori, Terry e Tiffany). E' passato quasi un mese da quando ti abbiamo consciuto...come passa il tempo. Volevo ringraziarti di nuovo per la giornata che abbiamo passato insieme. Ancora parliamo di quella giornata passata a Positano e Sorrento!!! Secondo me, era la migliore giornata della nostra vacanza. Ecco la foto che l'abbiamo fatto prima di partire. Sei stato molto gentile con noi e non ti dimenticheremo mai. Se un giorno dovessi andare a Toronto, devi chiamarmi prima di partire. Forse quando ti sposi puoi venire in Canada per la luna di miele!
Elizabeth Elliott - Ruby Princess
I wanted to send along a special "thank you" for the wonderful services your company provides. From the initial e-mails with you to our tour guide, Carmine, everything was fantastic. A special "thank you" to Carmine as he was wonderful -- great tour and a lot of information!
I'll be putting a post on cruise critic and will definitely add a note about your wonderful services.
Regards, Elizabeth Elliott
Dave, Kathy, Marie and Amy Duguay - Ruby Princess
Thank you so much for the tour. Claudio was a fantastic tour guide and we would highly recommend him to anyone who asked. We will give high recommendations of your company to anyone who asks about our day in Naples.
Claudio was fantastic and gave us great insite to the entire area, our only problem is that we only had 1 day. We plan to visit Italy again in the near future and we will be calling your company again.
Please be sure to let Claudio know that we appreciated his good nature and enjoyed the day with him as our personal guide. Dave, Kathy, Marie and Amy Duguay

We would like to thank you and your colleague for a lovely trip. We all decided we would like to come back and spend some time in positano. The gift was also very thoughtful and a great reminder of our trip.

Thank-you for the fabulous tour of the Amalfi Coast. I can't say enough wonderful things about Gluseppe. He was Outstanding !!!!
We are looking forward to our next trip to Naples!
Joe Delude - Ruby Princess
Hi Fabrizio and Antonino
It has been awhile since our June trip but I did want to write and let you know how much we enjoyed our time in Capri and Naples. We really appreciated your expertise and attention to our group. We really appreciated Giuseppi's flexibility out on Capri and our 'add lib' boat ride out there. Thanks again for the plate. It is on proud display down on Cape Cod in Massachusetts for all to see. I certainly will recommend you to my travel clients who are traveling out to that area. Hope all is well and best wishes to all. Joe Delude
Leanne and Damien Murray
Good morning Fabrizio,
I am just back in work today after 3 weeks off and a wonderful honeymoon!
I just wanted to say a huge thank you to you and your drivers (in particular Carmine) who did a wonderful job of making sure all ran smoothly on our wedding day! Some of our guests suffered travel sickness on the return journey and their patience was much appreciated. I also want to say thank you for the lovely and thoughtful gift which we received-it was very kind.
We had a wonderful wedding in Positano and intend to return sometime in the not-too-distant future. When we do we will certainly be in touch with you again.
Please also thank Carmine for his kindness in returning my father-in-laws mobile phone after he dropped it on the way to the airport, and for his kind words to me on the way to the town hall. He is a lovely man.
I will be recommending your company on trip advisor etc, and to any friends who visit the area in future.
Thank you once again, from Leanne and Damien.
Lisa and Joe - Seattle, WA USA
Fabrizio and Tony,
We arrived home late last night after 24 hours of travel. We had an absolutely fabulous trip to Italy, and all made better by the two of you. Tony, our day driving through Amalfi was extraordinary. We loved the history of Paestum and wondering the winding roads of the Amalfi Coast. We saw stunning views, beautiful architecture, and got to indulge in delicious food. Thanks for the side trip to the local restaurant for lunch. Those vegetables were the best of the entire trip. Yum!
Fabrizio, your service went beyond the call of duty when you parked, helped ring our luggage in, held our hand to buy train tickets and then carried our luggage onto the train. We really appreciated all of it.
Obviously, we will be giving you excellent reviews and will be recommend=ding your services to any of our friends who are heading your way.
All our best, Lisa and Joe.
Mary Landgraf - Brilliance of the Seas .
I am sorry that it has taken me so long before I wrote this note to thank you for the beautiful plate; it will always remind me of your tour and our time in Sorrento, Positano, Capri, and the Amalfi Drive.
I am deciding on a place of honor that I will see it frequently. Thank you for the fabulous tour that you arranged for us; it was outstanding, and it fits our wants perfectly. Please thank Vincenzo also for all his efforts. I will highly recommend your services to anyone. I will be speaking to the two travel agents that helped arranged our trip. If you ever need a reference, please don't hestitate to email me.
Tracy kogan - Holland America
We just got home from our vacation and wanted to thank you for a perfect day! You were so nice and a great driver guide--my whole family cannot stop talking about what a great time we had (and we usually do nothing but complain). The place you chose for lunch was very memorable--delicious food and an unbelievable view (and thanks again for accomodating everyone's food choices!) We will post a review on cruise critic and your website but for now i just wanted to let you know what a fun time we had with you! By the way, my parents plan on going to your cousin's restaurant in Bethesda soon! All the best, Tracy
Peri Gange - Norwegian Gem
Just wanted to drop a note to thank you so much for the wonderful tour we had of the Amalfi Coast with Claudio. He was so kind, personable and fun and we all agreed it was the best day of our cruise. We hope to get back to Italy again and wouldn't hesitate to use Amalfi Drive for our tour needs. Please pass along our gratitude to Claudio for a job very well done! Thanks again, Peri Gange.
Danielle Thompson - Ruby Princess
I am sorry it has taken us so long to send you this note - but we wanted to thank you for the wonderful tour we had when we were visiting Naples last month. Our day in the Amalfi Coast & Pompeii was one of the best days of the whole trip and we wanted you to know how much we enjoyed it.
I have the plate you gave me on a stand in my kitchen and every time I look at it I think of that terrific day. When people ask us about our vacation one of the first things we tell them about is our visit to this beautiful area.
I have posted a review on Cruise Critic about our tour and highly recommended it to all members. My sister is taking the same cruise next year and she will be contacting you for the same tour.
Thank you for everything! If we are in Naples again we will be sure to contact you.
Colomba Calicchio - Staten Island, NY
Ciao Fabrizio & Tony!
Well it's almost a month since we returned from beautiful ITALIA...I can't believe it!! All the planning we did a year in advance and now it's all over, but the memories. Thank you for taking such great care of the 8 of us during our stay in Positano...you made it extra special. You were always ready, willing and able to meet our needs and it was much appreciated. We look forward to returning and recommending you to everyone we know headed that way. I hope you have a busy, prosperous summer. Tanti Saluti, Colomba Calicchio (& Antonietta, Mona, Angel, Angela, Patty, Doreen & Kathy.
Abbie Sandico - Manila
We just arrived from our Europe trip.
Thank you so much for the tour of Pompei which you provided my family. They were all very happy. We would not have been able to appreciate it without Franco's knowledge and interesting commentaries. We enjoyed our time with him. We only wish we had more time to spend, but it was a perfect day.
Thank you too for my Ruby Princess group's tour in Capri.
If you should visit Manila one day, you are very welcome to stay with us. I can also help you with finding the beach destination in the Philippines. We are known for our beautiful beaches. I hope you can visit someday. Again, if you happen to be in Manila (where we live), you are very much welcome to stay with us.
Ted Chisholm - Canada
Thank you for everything. You made our getting from Rome and back a real joy. I will not hesitate to recommend you to anyone wishing to visit Amalfi. Once again thank you for your personal gift.
Robert Rogers - NCL cruise
We had a great trip and our day on the Amalfi Coast and Naples was excellent. We really enjoyed our day with Totino. He was excellent! We may be back soon and I hope he can be our driver again.
Sharon Ball - Azamara Journey
I am writing to let you know how much our group enjoyed our 2 tours with you. We all had a wonderful time! Everyone in our group was very excited and impressed with your vehicles, drivers, and guides. Vincenzo and Tony did everything to make sure we had a great tour and we appreciate your kindnesses. The bus we were on was new and very clean. The guides were fabulous and we enjoyed them very much. Our whole group was impressed and we intend to tell other travelers about our good experience with your tour group. I will also tell our travel agent to be sure to recommend you to other travelers. If we get to the Amalfi coast again we will surely book you again!!!! Thank you so much for the beautiful ceramic plate. I love it and will always remember our 2 days of fun and enjoyment on the Amalfi coast. Thank you again for the wonderful tours.
Sincerely, Sharon Ball
Lisa Gualco - San Diego, USA
I hope you remember me. I am Lisa Gualco from San Diego and you drove my cousin Eileen around a lot last month. We had the best time with you. I used the plate that you gave me today to serve Caprese salad at a party I had. Everyone loved the plate. I miss Italia! Everything in the USA is a financial mess. It is very scary! Thank you for treating us so well while we were there. We had so much fun with you!
John Alberati - Calgary, Alberta, Canada.
Buon giorno Fabrizio,
just wanted to thank you for the fantastic time that you provided us with your knowledge and personality. We truly enjoyed our visit to your fine country. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend you to anyone. As a matter of fact, we put in a good word in for you to Karina, our travel agent. I want to personally thank you for attempting to contact my dad's sister, Daniela even though you were unsuccessful. I too, tried to contact her when we were in Roma and I also, was unsuccessful. I was a little disappointed at not being able to see her as I have never met her. At least I was satisfied that I did try to contact her.
Anyway, again, I wanted to thank you for everything. Take care.
Robie and Wanda Murphy - Carninval Freedom.
We have recently returned from a 12 day cruise of the Western Med on the Carninval Freedom. We had group of 17 cruise critic members on a tour to Capri, Sorrento and Pompeii. It was a wonderful day, our tour guide, Guiseppe was great!! Very knowledgable about all the stops and fun as well!! Capri was beautiful, I could have spent the whole day there and Sorrento too. Pompeii was amazing to see what they were able to recover after Vesuvius erupted. The personalized plate will help to bring back fond memories of that day, one of the highlights of our trip. I highly reccommend your company to anyone interested in a more personal experience of these cities. We hope to be able to return again one day.
Debbie - Kennesaw Georgia USA.
Just to follow up and tell you that Joe and Ellen enjoyed their day with you on the Amalfi coast last month. They reported that you were "terrific" and it was one of their favorite experiences on their honeymoon trip. I thank you again for always delivering great service and experiences to my valued clients! I look forward to working with you again soon, and hopefully seeing you personally again, perhaps in 2009!
Dave Cohen - August 27, 2008
my group of 8 toured with you from the Carnival Freedom on August 27, 2008 and you were fantastic. You not only provided us with a quality tour of the Amalfi Coast and Pompeii, including multiple stops and a great out of the way restaurant for lunch, and provided us with a wealth of information, but more importantly you provided us with your caring and friendship. As I am certain you will recall, I had injured myself on the evening of August 25, 2008, while in Rome and my mobility was somewhat restricted. You managed to not only provide my fellow travelers with the tour that they sought, but also arranged with no advanced warning to make certain that I would not miss anything on the tour -- Going so far as to have me personally transported down to and up from Positano, which you knew I could not ambulate to or from. You even went out of your way to help get my watch fixed, while we were waiting for the rest of my group to come back up from Positano. You were not only our guide but our friend. To say that I will always be grateful to you for your knowledge, candor and kindness is without question. Thank you again, Dave Cohen
Carol Christ - Oceania Insigna
Our tour of the Amalfi Coast, Sorrento, Positano and Ravello was perfect. Tony was so knowledgeable, warm and friendly and made us feel welcome and pampered. The van was very spacious and comfortable (very important for my 6'8" husband). We were all very impressed and will highly recommend your service to anyone who is going to be visiting this area of Italy. You made everything very special for us and we are deeply grateful.
Regards, Carol Christ
Frank and Sofia Di Muzio - Emerald Princess
As the saying goes..."all good things must come to an end"... and this is true of our fantastic vacation...:-(
As we reflect on the memories through our pictures and those we have etched in our minds of the spectacular view of the coast of the Amalfi, Positano and Ravello we wanted to take the opportunity to send you a note of thanks for your great service. We were skeptical about booking this tour on our own but you very quickly had us convinced that this was the best option. We appreciated not only the comfortable ride, but your knowledge of each area we visited. Your very kind gift was also greatly appreciated and will serve as a lovely memory and a reminder of my hope to one day open the restaurant "Sofia"....:-)
For anyone reading this review whether you are visiting Naples by cruise or on your own - if you're looking to book a great private tour of the Amalfi- you've got one with the folks of Amalfi Drive. We will definately be using them in the future! With regards and thanks, Frank and Sofia
James Pacelli - USA
I wanted to let you know what a great driver we had on our trip from Priano to Naples on 31 July! We were trying to catch an earlier train than originally planned and the driver was great about doing everything he could to get us to the station on time. He even called to find out the exact train track we were to depart from and dropped us off at the side entrance to the station where we did not have to fight through the crowds. We managed to make the train by one minute thanks to the great efforts of the driver!
Thanks again and we will definitely recommend Amalfi Drive Limousine to our friends in the future!!!
Bob & Noelene Kirk - Australia
We wanted to thank you for your prompt and professional service on our recent trip to Italy. We were in a party of six who organised transfers from Rome to Positano and return to Orvieto and it made travelling so much more relaxed and stress free as we had the time to enjoy the beautiful scenery, and together with your knowledge of the Amalfi Coast made the trip so much more enjoyable. Thank you for your patience and careful driving, we could not have done it on our own. We will highly recommend you and Amalfi Drive Limousine Service to all our friends and associates in Australia and hope to see you again soon. Thank you.
Ed and Liz Parthemore - Legend of the Seas
We would like to say thanks to Fabrizio for the fabulous tour he gave us on Saturday June 14th. We were sailing Royal Caribbean's "Legend of the Seas" and for our Naples port visit, we decided to arrange our own tour for the day. Best decision we ever made! Fabrizio was waiting for us at 7:45 AM as arranged. He drove like a pro and was a great tour guide. He was attentive and stopped when he sensed we wanted to take pictures or see something up close. He stopped at a great restaurant for lunch, not terribly expensive and great food and wine. Touring in a 7-passenger van rather than some larger vehicle the cruise ship would have arranged was much more comfortable. We would highly recommend touring with Amalfi Drive Limo.
Sarah Lowe - Brilliance of the Seas
Tony, I just wanted to thank you again for the wonderful day that Chuck, Linda, Heath and I spent with you on June 26th. You really made our vacation great. It was my favorite day of our cruise. I definitely hope that we will be able to return to Italy again some day. I hope you and your family have a great time when you visit the US later this year. Thanks again
Ron Pineda & Family - Brilliance of the Seas
I want to thank you for the excellent job you did with our tour of the Amalfi coast on June 20. Everyone in our group considered your tour the best of our entire trip to Europe! Sorrento and Positano are incredibly beautiful and we are thankful that you took us to those destinations. Our lunch was delicious, and the view from the restaurant was breathtaking. We still think about that feast!
We also want to thank you for the very thoughtful gift of the personalized plate. It was such an unexpected surprise! We have it on display in our kitchen and it will always remind us of the perfect day you had planned out for us. Thank you for all your hospitality and hopefully our paths will cross again. I will highly recommend your limousine service to anyone who travels to Italy!
Lee Flamm - Celebrity Summit
I just wanted to thank you for a wonderful tour of the Amalfi Coast. My friends and I agree that it was the best day on our cruise. Thank you again.
The Jerrier Family - May 02, 2008
Ciao Fabrizio and Tony,
We just returned home and I had to let you know how fortunate we feel that we found your website. I was first very impressed by your prompt friendly replies to my many emails. Then I was very impressed by your reasonable pricing. But, as impressed as I was, the service you provided us far exceeded my greatest expectations!! The mini bus you provided for my family of nine was just right and was very comfortable. Nino, our driver was prompt, professional and charming. Franco, our Pompeii guide, was perfect. For 3 hours, as we explored Pompeii together, we were the "Franco Family". This is certainly something my family will always remember.
The girls loved both Nino and Franco. When asked, the three girls will always say that Pompeii was their favorite part of our entire trip. And so, it is also with the adults. My only regret is that I did not book more of your excursions. I definitely will on our return to your beautiful Sorrento.
Thank you and our best regards to all.
Joy Sigmon - Australia
My husband Ed and I with our friends from California, hired you last May/June, 2007 for a pickup at the Naples airport and transportation to Amalfi. You then picked us up and brought us back to the Naples train station. I was truly impressed with the wonderful service. You made us feel so welcome. I am now a travel agent and have a couple of possibilities for ........
Michael Baker - USA
Hello Tony & Fabrizio,
Just a short note to thank you both for your excellent service. It was a pleasure to have the opportunity to meet both of you and we hope that we will have that pleasure again. I want to especially thank Fabrizio for the transfer to the train station in Napoli. Whether by design or not the timing was perfect. I know we would have missed that train without your help negotiating the station. It left about a minute after we got on.
So thank you both again and we will be passing your names on to as many people as we can.
Siok & Arjun - London
Dear Signor Tony,
Just a short note to thank you again for such a great service during our excursion from Casa Angelina through the Amalfi Coast. Arjun and I had a great time - we are now back in London - and we recently discussed how you were indeed the highlight of our trip! Thanks for taking us to the nice restaurant in Pontone - I think they have the best tomato sauce :-)
Have a great winter break, and hope to see you again soon. And please don't be too hard on Carolina.
Marian Bowles - Oceania Regatta
I wanted to say thank you again for the wonderful tour you gave us on Monday, Oct 8th.
We enjoyed it immensely, and have so many great memories(and photos!) of the area.
We all LOVED our lunch in Positano, and still talk about it. Thank you also for my lovely plate, it is displayed in my dining room, and I think of the beautiful sites we saw every time I look at the plate!
I have written a report of our trip and posted it on both Fodors and Cruise Critic...hope lots of future tourists will enjoy a tour with you as well.
Roberta Adkins - Carnival Freedom
I am so happy our group of 12 booked our “private” excursion day in Naples (Carnival Freedom) with you to Pompai, Amalfi drive, Positano and the short walk thru Naples. The day with your driver (Fabrizio too?) was the highlight of our 17 days in Europe. My concern had been the drive along the Amalfi coast when I booked. Your driver put us at ease immediately with his careful driving. We were immediately relaxed (the best we could). I can not say enough about our guide. He was so educated on Pompai and had a difficult time moving our group along because of our fascination with his information. Positano was more than I expected. Fabrizio asked what we wanted in Positano. I left it up to him and he arranged a lunch at DA COSTANTINO on the cliffs overlooking Positano and the ocean rather than the touristy expensive restaurants along the marina. We experienced a breathtaking view from our lunch table. The owners served us family style more food than any one can eat from appetizers, several main entrees, white and red wine, water, dessert and desert wine. Best meal and least expensive in Italy. We stopped to enjoy the views from the cliffs of Positano. Nothing like it. Due to time, we rushed to complete a quick historical walk in Naples which again, was very informative. This was not my choice but group wanted this. I was surprisingly amazed at the beauty of the city once I shut out other distractions. Good choice from group! This is advantage of traveling with others.
Thank you for meeting us at the pier, Fabrizio. It was a pleasure. Meeting you in person was nice especially since we corresponded for several months before our trip. You, your driver and guide are such gentleman. Thank you for your gift. I have placed it in my home and will remember my experience forever. Congratulations again to our guide on the birth of his baby. He did not look sleepy but we knew he was.
Best Regards, Roberta
Lora and Fernando Café - Legend of the Seas
We had a wonderful day with Fabrizio (the guide) he was very knowlegeable and very patient.
As we had already been to the Amalfi coast we asked for a specific tour of only Capri and Sorrento.
What a wonderful day we had (all 6 of us)! from beginning to end our guide took care of everything including helping us to select a restaurant in Sorrento. What a delight.
I would highly recommend this company, very, very professional, patient and helpful!!
Lauri and Tim Flanagan
I wanted to thank you for the wonderful tour of the Amalfi Coast! Tim and I had a great time. We enjoyed the breathtaking scenery, your knowledge of the area, your personality, attention to detail and fabulous service! Thank you also for the cherries. What a great treat they were! We especially enjoyed the restaurant in Ravello, it was the best meal with the best view of our experience in Italy! We look forward to returning to Italy and spending more time in the towns along the coast!
Our best regards and much success to you!

Just a quick Thank You for our Naples excursion with you. We had a wonderful and hectic day but were able to see everything that we wished to see. Your gift plate to us was a surprise and we really appreciate such a memento of our day.
Our Favorite Day - Jan and Bill Dean -Texas
You are the best! Bill and I spent a month in Europe and I had arranged for a private car in numerous locations that I felt were important to see in one day. You were by far, our best guide the entire time we spent in the Mediterranean. It's obvious how much you love the country of your birth, from the enthusiasm and knowledge you transcended to us. Sorrento, Pompeii and the Amalfi coast wouldn't have been the same without you. You were a true gentleman who gave us so much insight about your country in such a short time. The lunch at the restaurant above Positano was the best we experienced in Italy - and that says alot! We plan to return and spend more time in Sorrento and the Amalfi coast.We will of course, want to have you as our guide. I have already recommended you to many people and will continue to do so. Our close friends Gary and Kathy Johnson will be coming in May, 2007 and will make arrangements through you, for the "Grand Tour". We love the CD and listen to it often. It brings back such wonderful memories of a truly beautiful day in a truly beautiful country with a truly handsome young man. The needlework hanging for our grandson (who was born the next day) was just icing on a perfect cake.
Thank you again Fabrizio for being the perfect host and allowing us to "tag along". If you ever come to Texas, you're more than welcome to stay with us. "Mi casa es su casa".

I want to take this opportunity to thank you and your associate Antonino for the excellent service we received. I was happy that you were there when we arrived in Naples. We were coming in from Toronto and were tired after flying for so many hours. The four days you spent with us showing us different places along the Amalfi Coast was spectacular. Your knowledge on the history was formidable. You truly love where you were born and it showed every minute of the day. You were very patient and kind and nothing seemed to be a problem. If we wanted to stop, to take in the sights or even just to shop, you were very accomodating. I loved the places you recommended for lunch. Incredible food! You made us feel very welcome and secure. When we said good-bye, it felt like I was saying good-bye to my brother. I want to wish you all the success in your business. I will highly recommend you to my friends and associates and I can't wait to return. Through you, we met some lovely people that I would certainly like to see again.
My best wishes. Arriverderla! (Til we meet again)

We would like to thank you for taking us on a recent tour of the Amalfi Coast. We had a wonderful day and only wish we could have spent more time there. We felt very comfortable riding with you and thoroughly enjoyed our day. Several years ago you took my sister and her friends on a tour of the Coast and they told us how wonderful you were. We have to agree with them and also want to tell you that we have listened to the CD you made for them along with the new one you gave us many times and it is a great memory of a wonderful day. The Amalfi Coast is breathtaking and it was such a joy to sit back, relax, see the spectacular views and enjoy the ride. We appreciated you sharing your knowledge of your beautiful country, and we loved your suggestion for our lunch, it was our favorite meal in Italy. You’re true gentlemen and we hope to see you again, if you ever decide to come to the states, we hope you would contact us, remember, Boston has a great Italian section. Thank you and we wish you continued success with your business.

my husband and I were part of the foursome – the Richer party. You took us to have lunch at that wonderful restaurant over Positano which was our favorite meal in Italy. We loved our tour of the Amalfi coast and felt very safe with your driving skills. We played the CD you gave us several times on the weekend and loved your selection of music. It was such a nice touch! Thank you for everything and thank you for staying with us in the Naples train station. We will pass your name and website along to anyone we know that is traveling to Italy. You were a true gentleman. Good luck with your business and best wishes! Colleen

We were just reviewing our photos of our recent trip to Italy (June 5) - and remembered the wonderful time we had with Tony as our driver. Tony rescued us in Naples when our driver did not show. Tony was the best! We toured the Amalfi Coast - Tony provided great history and background. We thoroughly enjoyed our day! Of all the drivers we had during our time Italy - Tony was the best.

I am just sending you this e-mail to thank you for your wonderful service during our honeymoon in Praiano in Casa Angelina. We will never forget the great tours of Ravello and Sorrento and the Aamalfi Coast we had with you. It was lovely to meet you and thank you for sharing your knowledge of the beautiful Amalfi Coast with us and for making us feel so welcome. We really enjoyed meeting you and you helped to make our stay even more special.
Many thanks Tonino and we look forward to returning and meeting you again some day. If you ever decide to come to Ireland and need any information please let me know and I would be delighted to help.
Ciao and Grazie

We would have been lost without Fabrizio who was our angel. He ran out and located a wheel chair for Cynthia, provided information, help, directions, advice, was so accommodating on anything we wanted to do anytime and anyway that we wanted to do it. If he couldn't do it with his vehicle, he saw to it that someone else did. He got us a boat and a captain for a day and I cannot say enough good about it.
We all felt that his charges were fair and that everything that we did with him was such a good value. I shopped a bit for tour prices prior to getting there and I want to recommend him as highly as possible. He and Antonino could not have been nicer in anyway, they were GREAT and we would have been lost without them.
He checked in regularly as I could not call out and both guys let my friends call worried husbands on their cell phones. We were sad to leave them as we felt that we had friends in Italy.
