It could be a vacation from work, a romantic getaway, a culture-buildingexperience with the family or a chance to see Italy’s history. Whatever it is, Driver in Italy willmake sure that every detail is taken care of, the staff is friendly, the fleet is immaculate and that ourdriver/guides speak fluent English. We go out of our way to make clients feel like a part of ourfamily, forming personal relationships by talking, laughing and interacting during tours. Our toursgo above and beyond the norm, whether it be providing an opportunity in Tuscany’s Chianti tohand pick grapes and later delivering a bottle of wine to the client that is made from those grapes ortreating clients to restaurants or gelaterias known locally for their excellent food and off the beatentrack locations. Our promise is to differentiate our service from the others and make the Driver InItaly experience one that will never be forgotten. Why do we do it? Because we care, and we trulywant to be fondly remembered as an integral part of your life-enriching experience. For personalattention, it’s Driver in Italy!

Francesco was our driver and Valentina was our guide for the Vatican tour. Both were outstanding!

Dear Mimi: This is what separates the men from the boys or the women from the girls - the experience of the driver and guide. They know all the ins and outs, allowing them to find you more time for seeing & doing, even while the tour has the same duration as other tours. Considering that a tour is very... More

We just got into Rome this evening and had a great experience and tour with Amera. She was very knowledgable and fun to be with. It was four of us and we always travel together.

Dear Stressfree: Visitors rave about Amira’s exceptional tours, citing both her knowledge and her demeanor. She’s a real pro with a winning combination - some of it is learned, based on study and experience, but much is also innate. That’s the part you can’t learn because it comes from within. She excels in the operational aspects of the tour –navigating... More

Having been to Italy several times and living there in the 1970s we did not want to stand in line at the typical tourist sites, but we had a few well know spots that had special meaning for us.
