If you are going to the Amalfi Coast you MUST book Giovanni!!!

My wife is a travel agent and we have traveled extensively. Two years ago we were on a Mediterranean Cruise and we stopped in Italy. My wife had booked us a guided tour of the Amalfi Coast with Lovely Amalfi Coast Tours For ourselves, our daughter and niece. We were picked up By our guide Giovanni (Gio) and spent the better part of the day with him. He is a great driver with a very safe, reliable vehicle and a great personality! He showed us the sites and very knowledgeable in this perfect locality. The girls all fell in love with him and to this day we still all converse with him on Facebook. He recommended an awesome place to enjoy a Great lunch , right on the sea. You couldn’t ask foe a better setting. This was by far one of the best things that I have ever done in my life and I highly recommend it, and Gio!

BEST DECISION EVER! Absolutely breathtaking excursion! You will not regret hiring this company to guide you around Italy! Gorgeous views and excellent food along the way all thanks to the best tour guide we could have ever been blessed with! Vincenzo was fantastic! Tour guide is his title but he was definitely much more than that. He described many places and things we saw along the way, kept track of the time so that we were able to see everything we wanted to that day, willingly took photos of us at all of our stops, kept us entertained the entire day from beginning to end, and we truly felt like we were driving around Italy with a FRIEND! We were able to see all of the highlights on our list of must see places during our stop in Naples including Sorrento, the Amalfi Coast, Positano, & Pompeii. But we were also able to see and visit places we hadn’t known about before, like a local family owned Italian restaurant overlooking the famous Positano beach. Best food we had in all of Italy! All of this wouldn’t have happened without Vincenzo, his fun personality and great recommendations along the way! We are so lucky to have gotten him as our tour guide and we will absolutely look for Vincenzo the next time we are in Italy! Book him now for a fantastic tour worth every penny!

Amalfi Coast & Pompeii Day Trip. We will never forget this day thanks to Enrico and Lena. The scenery of the Amalfi Coast and the history of Pompeii is truly amazing. The high speed train from Rome to Naples is only an hour and Enrico greeted us at the station and within minutes we hit the road in his Mercedes. Our first stop was the pretty village of Serento, excellent shopping and cappuccino. Next stop Positano. Although very popular and therefore crowded it is so beautiful. Enrico suggested lunch at a restaurant high up the mountain called de Costantino. This is a must, we had the most spectacular view and the food and wine absolutely delicious, order the Family meal and house wine, all locally grown produce. With full bellies Enrico then drove us to Pompeii to meet our personal guide Lena. Pompeii in the afternoon is less crowded in the mornings and Lena expertly guided us through avoiding the mass group tours so it was a truly personal experience and her knowledge is fantastic. Pompeii cannot be missed, what a fascinating history and culture. Thanks Enrico and Lena for making this day very special.

Our driver/guide, Gio was perfect - very knowledgable, entertaining and efficient. Great itinerary including hiking up Vesuvius, a lovely lunch at Cantina del Vesuvio winery and Pompeii. Gio's local knowledge and personal service made it so much better than the standard cruise operators' tours.

We just finished our day tour of Positano, Sorrento & Pompeii. Giovanni was our driver & we feel so lucky to have had him! He was incredible and super friendly. Gió shared so much information about the region & his own personal experiences and recommendations of each place. You could tell that he was a proud Napolitano and we had so much fun! The Amalfi coast is so beautiful & although it is currently winter, there was something truly special about being one of the only tourists walking through Positano. It felt like we had the whole town to ourselves. We won't forget it! Grazie mille Giovanni!
