Domenico and Raffaele gave our family 2 of the best days of our cruise. Domenico met us at the port and took us to Rome showing us the ancient sits first and then the sites of Rome in the present day. We saw things that you would never see in a large group. A lovely lunch and ice creams for the children. All the history was explained and there was time for a cappuccino. Great photographs and really the best city visit we have ever done.
Naples was equally as impressive wi a visit to Pompeii and a climb up to the crater of Vesuvius. Raffaele showed us around Naples with a perfect water front lunch stop.
I can't praise this company enough. Our children loved it too. We WILL be using them again when we next visit Italy. Thank you Domenico and Raffaele.

Domenico and his team did an amazing job providing transfers in Rome from the airport to our hotel (two separate trips picking up our children with one flight being delayed) and from Rome to Civitavecchia (first picking up our luggage at the hotel, then our family by the Vatican not having to waste a minute of our site seeing time!). We also used Private Tours in Italy for four separate tours through out our two weeks in Italy. Domenico's team was prompt, professional, personable and knowledgeable saving us time and money over the cruise excursions. Plus, we were able to tour with just our family, eat at uncrowded local restaurants (including two trips to a gelato shop in one 3 hour period!) and experience things off the beaten path we would have missed had we gone with the excursions offered by the cruise line. We were given a true taste of Italy and could not have been more pleased with this great company! Thank you, Domenico!

My group of 6 came in to Rome a few days before a Mediterranean Cruise. Guiseppe met us at the airport and off we went. Toured the Catacombs in the Roman Hills, spent a little time in Casteel Gandolfo, visited a lovely, family run Winery and had the most fabulous lunch. What a great way to start our vacation!
The next day our driver was Luka, a great guy. He kept up an interesting, running commentary as we drove about the city. Told us entertaining stories about himself and his family. What a hoot! We had a private guide for the Colosseum, Forum, Planentine Hill area. Very wise decision. Frederica is an absolute doll. Not only is she knowledgeable about the history, she is a very gracious lady. One of the older ladies in our group had a little problem. Frederica took care of her while the rest of us toured the Underground and Upper Level of the Colosseum. Frederica is just the sweetest! The following day, we had again Guiseppe. He took us early to the Vatican, where we met our private guide. (I do not remember her name, so sorry). She was also very knowledgeable and conscious of the limited time we had to spend at the Vatican before departing for our Cruise. Guiseppe delivered us safely and in plenty of time to board our ship. He is quite the gentleman. Using Domenico's Tours was the best choice we made. Domenico was our guide on the Amalfi Coast. (Seperate Review). Everyone we dealt with, starting with the very first email, was most efficient and pleasant and knowledgeable. If we are ever lucky enough to be able to go back to Italy, I will most assuradly contact Lella to set up our tours. If you want your precious time in Italy to be special, put your trust in Domenico and have a great time!

We wanted to see so many things in Rome and only had a day to do it so we hired Private Tour in Italy. Domenico was our guide and was OUTSTANDING!!! He picked us up at our ship, made sure we got in and out of the attractions smoothly, had our tickets ready for everything and answered all our questions (without treating us like we were dummies). When we wanted a small, intimate restaurant for lunch, he found it. When we wanted to take a detour to see something, he did it. I can't compliment him and Maria (our guide at the Vatican) enough. I would have no hesitation in recommending this company for your enjoyment of Rome.

During our tour, we expressed an interest in seeing the olive orchards and an olive oil production facility and Domenico was able to arrange this for the next day when we were in Naples. Our guide took us down the coast and around Naples, to the olive oil facility, Pompeii and the Herculaneum. Again, he was able to answer our questions and was extremely accommodating. I was very impressed at how this company was versatile and accommodated our interests instead of trying to make us fit into one of their tours. You should not hesitate to contact Private Tour in Italy and rely on them to make your trip special!!!!!

I compared quite a few (at least 7) touring companies before choosing Private Tour in Italy because 1) their reservationist, Raffaele, was extremely helpful and answered all my questions. He made booking easy and stress free, and the response time was within 24 hours of sending the email; 2) this company was by far the most reasonably priced. 3) I ended up cancelling 1 of 2 tours that I booked and they gave me no issues or problems and confirmed the cancellation. No hard feelings. Three great reasons...and this was all prior to the day of the tour!

But when we did arrive in Naples, we were greeted by our driver Giallucca (sp?). As soon as we met him, we knew we were in great hands. We originally scheduled our day to start in Positano, head to Sorrento, and then take the hydrofoil back to Capri. But when we got to Positano, we ended up staying their for majority of our one day visit. Giallucca was from Positano, and he knew all the great places and sites to see. He also recommended/took us to one of the most memorable places for lunch. We headed up to this restaurant which felt like the top of the hill of Positano with the most amazing views and was seated at the best table in the restaurant. Although our family was the only ones there (lunch is less popular timing than dinner), we were treated to what felt like royalty and the food was absolutely phenomenal. For the remainder of our time in there, we stayed at this restaurant and had a great time conversing with our waiter and some of the other workers there. We felt as if we were at home. And as soon as we were ready, we headed back down the hill to Sorrento where Giallucca brought us to some great photo spots and made sure we got the right tickets to head back to Naples and get there on time. Thank you Gialluca for an amazing day and congratulations on your new baby girl!

Highly recommend Private Tour in Italy. The next time we visit Italy, we are sure to use their services again.
