We booked a shore excursion for 7 people to see Rome and the Vatican and I am so glad we chose Private Tour in Italy. I wish we had used them in Florence and the Amalfi Coast as well. Domenico picked us up from the ship and we drove to Rome. He was immediately our friend. He was very attentive to our needs and really cared that we were having a special day. We could also tell he was passionate about his country and Rome and wanted us to understand why. Domenico organised another expert guide for the Vatican part of our tour. Simon was also excellent. An archeologist, his knowledge of the Vatican, it's history and that of the Church was amazing. He was also wonderful with my mother who found the steps tough going due to her age and ill health. Overall, it was an amazingly wonderful day where we saw an incredible amount of a wonderful city and learnt so much as well. I did several shore excursions and other day trips and tours on my 2 month Europe trip and Domenico was our best and favourite guide! I hope to meet you again and visit your wonderful country! Thank you!

We were collected from our cruise ship in Civitivecchia by Giuseppe, a wonderful warm and genuine man. He collected us all into his beautifully maintained Mercedes car. We were travelling with kids and grandmother including an electric scooter. Giuseppe drove us to Rome regaling us with facts and stories about the local area. While we were in Rome, Giuseppe escorted us to St. Peter's square, the Colloseum, the Trevi fountain, the Spanish Steps, the Via Apia, and more! We lunched in a lovely square that had a busy market with loads of restaurants and had a fantastic authentic italian meal. (Be warned lunch for five in Rome cost 100 euros, but Giuseppe had warned us in advance). We were escorted past lines of tourists waiting to buy tickets and were given immediate access to venues. We spent the entire day and were all exhausted by the end. The final treat was a visit to Antica Gelateria, the best ice cream shop in Rome! 6 gelatos for the whole group cost less than 20 euros and were homemade and delicious. Better than the ones that we'd bought from a random shop by the Trevi fountain. Thanks Giuseppe for an unforgettable day and for taking us for the best gelato in Rome!

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!
