“Excellent Tour Guide & Driver”
Review of Wisely Travelling

Wisely Travelling
Ranked #27 of 72 Transportation in Sorrento
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 18 December 2013

I had e-mailed quite a number of drivers in the Sorrento area and after hearing back from them Carlo of Wisely Travelling was by far the one who had more to offer. Carlo had gone into a lot more depth of what services he could be to us, ( 4 ).
We travelled with Carlo from Rome to Sorrento with a stop at Herculaneum. During our travel Carlo spoke of all the history of where we were passing and of Italy, Rome and of course his home Sorrento and was able to answer all of our questions in depth.
We also used Carlo for a day trip along the Amalfi Coast and also to Pasteum.
Nothing was too much trouble as we were always in conversation with Carlo, and what an excellent tour of the Amalfi Coast we had, no complaints either about the Mercedes Van we travelled in, nice and clean and very comfortable.
Having ample stops at the lovely seaside villages of Positano, Amalfi & Ravello.
If you are looking for a personal driver Carlo is your man, a true gentleman.

We booked Carlo to take us on a tour of the Amalfi Coast. He was amazing, making lots of stops for photos along the way and telling us the history of the area. We thoroughly enjoyed the day and learnt a great deal, we saw far more than we would have done on a coach trip. Carlo really made our holiday.

We travelled from Rome to Naples by train where Carlo was waiting for us as arranged. We visited the Amalfi Coast, Positano and Sorrento with Carlo giving us information and plenty of photo stops along the way. After lunch in Sorrento we headed off to Pompeii for a 2 hour guided tour with Sascha ( arranged by Carlo). It has been a lifelong dream for me to visit Pompeii and Sascha made this visit so special - he really made the city come alive and we could imagine the people living there and what their life was like all those years ago. Then it was back to the train station for our trip back to Rome. I cannot recommend this trip highly enough - it was amazing. Thanks Carlo & Sascha - we hope you can visit us in Perth soon :)

We booked Carlo after reading the rave reviews on TripAdvisor and if anything he exceeded our expectations! We were on a holiday to Sorrento with our three children of 11, 14 and 16 and my parents who are in their 70s to celebrate their Golden Wedding. We wanted a tour of the Amalfi coast that we could take at our own pace and stop off when we wanted to take photos or look around and I was particularly keen that everyone should enjoy the amazing views. Carlo sounded ideal and his comfortable people carrier with large windows ensured that everyone had perfect views of the coastline. He was fun, charming and knowledgeable and put everyone at their ease, showing great patience with all the children's questions and engaging their interest in Italian history, culture and geography. We made several stops along the way to take fantastic photos and we also spent some time in Positano, Amalfi and Ravello. Carlo really went the extra mile to ensure that we all had a wonderful day and the trip was one of the highlights of our stay in Sorrento. From the moment I first enquired, he responded promptly and helpfully and the cost was not much more than the price of booking 7 places on a large, impersonal coach tour. It is also worth noting that his vehicle can pass where the bigger buses and coaches cannot, particularly in Positano, and so you have much more flexibility in deciding where you would like to go. Grazie mille Carlo! We would wholeheartedly recommend you to anyone looking to book a tour from Sorrento.

Four women friends completed a tour in Rome and wanted to spend some time along the Amalfi Coast. We hired Wisely Travelling to get us from Rome to Sorrento, along the coast, then back up to a hotel in Naples. A business associate picked us up at our hotel in Rome. We were undecided about going to Naples and taking the fast boat to Capri (the weather wasn't terrific). Our driver, Antonio, would take our luggage to our Sorrento hotel if we took off for Capri. The weather didn't clear enough, so we drove with Antonio to Sorrento, where he helped us up the many steps with our luggage. That evening, Carlo took us to a farm restaurant Fattoria Terranova, which he recommended (and it's a fabulous place). Then, the following day he took us all around the coast, to lunch at another good restaurant, and finally back to our hotel in Naples for an early flight out. Both Carlo and Antonio were so flexible with our plans and were congenial and knowledgeable. Carlo has a great sense of humor and he made our time with him quite enjoyable. And....it was cheaper for us in total than if we had taken the train from Rome to Naples, then to Sorrento and back to Naples schlepping our luggage. I highly recommend this car service - no way would I try to drive myself along the "Mama Mia Road."
