“Nice letting some one else drive”
Review of Tour of Italy

Tour of Italy
Ranked #15 of 40 Tours in Massa Lubrense
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 17 July 2013

Father and son provided us safe transport from Rome to Amalfi coast and a day trip to Pompei. The vehicle was large and comfortable. Giovanni and Giancarlo were friendly and provided some color comments on the travel. The cost was worth the convenience airport pick and not worrying about driving and parking on the Amalfi coast.

We used Tour of Italy both to transfer us from Naples airport to Sorrento and to take a tour of the Amalfi Coast (for the 9 of us). Giovanni and his son Giancarlo were our Amalfi drivers and they made the trip wonderfully memorable and loads of fun. They are locals who know the area (and seemingly everyone in it!) very well, and I would highly recommend their tour company to anyone. They made us a reservation at a lovely Ravello restaurant where we had a fantastic table overlooking the coast. They also are experienced with giving tours in Rome, Naples, and Tuscany (including taking cruise-ship passengers on tours). I think they'd be great for any of these, and I won't hesitate to contact them on future trips to Italy.

We booked our transfers from Naples to Positano and back with Tour of italy. Very professional, reliable an punctual. On the way back Mr Giovanni The Father bought us lemon granita and gave us a bottle of limoncello, truly entertained us with funny stories and lovely Napolitan songs.
We had a blast! Thank you so much from the Florentines:)

We traveled with several friends to Positano. We were picked up at the Naples rail station in an immaculate Mercedes van. On our way to Positano the driver made arrangements for a guide and tour of Pompei. Following the tour, the driver delivered us safely to the villa had rented.
Towards the end of our stay in Positano one member of our group fell ill. We were able to arrange for Giovanni (the father) to take our friend and his wife to a hospital in Rome. Not only did Giovanni take them to the hospital, but he stayed with our friend's wife for most of the day, helping her with translation and finding a hotel for our friend's wife. In the week our friend was in the hospital, Giovanni came to visit, making sure our friend's wife had everything she needed.
Giancarlo (the son) was our driver for our return trip to Naples. Again, in an immaculate Mercedes and an enjoyable and very informative trip to Naples. Giancarlo was a wealth of information about Italy and the Amalfi coast.
We cannot recommend Tour of Italy highly enough.

We felt wecome the moment that Giancarlo picked us up at the Cruise Terminal. I had communicated with Giancarlo ahead of our Cruise so he had a good idea of where wq wanted to go. We first headed to Pompeii where were were first in line for tickets and avoided the long tour bus lines that showed up after we stsarted out visit to Pompeii. We then headed to Sorrento where Giancarlo stopped so I could take photos of some of the most beautiful sites i have every seen! The big tours can't provide that service. My wife and i had a couple hours to walk around Sorrento plus Giancarlo took us to a few hidden places most tourist do not get to see. We had ask Giancarlo to take us to a local non touristy restaurant for lunch and he did not disapoint. IL Panorama had veiw of Sorrento and also the Amalfi Coast and the food was so fresh and delicious and the family that owns the place so friendly. After lunch we we off to Positano and more spectacular views and I was glad that i was not driving the windy roads leading to this most beautiful place. My wife and I had a chance to look arouund and do some shopping and really enjoyed a cup of cappuccino looking out over the water in this truly charming little resort! Giancarlo stopped for us to experience some local Lemon Ice and got us back to the ship with a little time to spare. If you have limited time like we had on this trip, you would be crazy not to hire Giancarlo for the day! Thanks for a great day and some great memories!!!!!!!!!!!!!
