Hi Luca,

We had a wonderful experience in Rome. I love the fact that you sent me a thank you email when I got home. That is truly professional. You came through with everything you promised me. Paulo was on time and met us with no problem at the port. The car was very comfortable. There was a lot to accomplish in a day so we were always on the go. He was very informative, pleasant, accommodating and interesting. Handled our luggage without a problem and dodged the traffic. We saw all the main attractions. He stood by the car and was not able to enter any of the sights but told us what we would be seeing and where to go. His favorite restaurant was closed Monday so we ate at a small pizzeria near the Vatican. It was ok. Overall a terrific experience and I would highly recommend you to any of my friends. Thanks for making my travels go smoothly.

Best regards

I'm sorry Luca that I hadn't responded to you sooner but I did want to let you know that we had a wonderful trip to Villavallelonga with one of your drivers. He made the trip especially fun and filled us in on a lot of information about Rome, Abruzzo and Italy in general that we wouldn't not have learned. We appreciated that. I would recommend your company to anyone interested in arranging a trip while in Italy.

Hi Luca,

I meant to contact you so I;m glad you sent this reminder. I can't tell you how happy we were with our tours in Italy. All our drivers were so wonderful. The restaurants they took us to were fabulous! We also thoroughly enjoyed the bottle of wine Paola gave us! (We drank that in Spain). Our driver (Paalo) even arranged a special blessing for us at the Catacombs from the priest there. My daughter was especially happy with that. He also took us to see the keyhole in the door which I thought was wonderful as no one else we talked to on our ship saw that! I will be sure to pass along your name if anyone I know is going. I am also going to write a cruise review and will include your company in a most positive way.

Thanks again for a memorable 3 days with your drivers

Russel Hyman

Great follow up!

We have nothing negative to say about our experience with your company at all. Everything was great-polite, well spoken driver/ guide. Quick use of time running around looking at the important sites. Good lunch restaurant stop. Effective use of drive time versus walking areas. We had a great experience.

Thanks again

Ciao Luca,

We loved having your company take care of our tour needs and car service. Everyone from your company was a delight to be with. They were are very nice and very very happy. I really love being around happy people. I also appreciate there patience with my 4 children and their needs. Please give them all a big thank you from us. Please also say big thank you to Manny who picked us up at the worst time in the morning for our way too early flight home. Big big hug to him. I am planning on returning to Rome next summer. We will definitely work with you again.

Ciao,

Cliff

Just got off the ship and thank you. Must tell youn that our guy was absolutelym outstanding. Everyone was sooo impressed with him. Make sure you keep him. Hope to get you lots of business in future. Will send an email to all my friends about you all. Thanks again for helping us have a wonderful family trip. Sorry you did not meet our son, daugter in law and 2 kids. They had great fun on the ship.

Robert

Hi Luca,

We are back at home and back to work. No complaints you guys were really nice and gave us a good look at Rome while we there. I can't wait to come back to Italy and see more of your beautiful country. Hopefully our countries can get the financial issues behind us, which will give us more money to come visit you again.

Blessings,

Hi Luca,

I don't even know where to begin to describe how RomeDrivingTours.com made our visits to Florence and Rome incredible! I am telling everyone I know who is even considering a trip to Italy to hire RomeDrivingTours.com. Maria was such a delight the moment we met her when we stepped off our ship. She gave us wonderful information about Tuscany and what we would see in Florence that day on our drive into Florence. When we suddenly decided that we wanted to stop in Pisa, she was perfectly happy to oblige us. We saw so much in our one day in Florence! I don't even want to think about what it would have been like without her and that extremely comfortable air conditioned bus.

Rome was amazing with Valaria! She was just phenomenal in her knowledge of everything Rome! She was so engaging that it was like we had been friends our whole life. I cannot tell you how it warms my heart to hear my kids quoting her - she just made the whole experience so incredible. As tired as we were at the end of the day, we didn't want to say goodbye to her.

We tried one tour that the ship offered and were sorely disappointed. Not only did it cost about the same, we felt like cattle and could only hear the guide occasionally through the earpiece we had to wear. After our tours with your company, everything else paled in comparison.

We also loved meeting Paolo at the wonderful restaurant Valaria took us to for lunch and we really enjoyed the wine that he so thoughtfully brought for us! Everything about RomeDrivingTours.com is definitely first class and I will definitely be calling you the next time we travel to Italy!

Sincerely.

Cindy and Irving Lerner

Luca,

We are sad to be leaving this incredible place. It is difficult to take in everything in 2-3 days, but we appreciated your presentation and enthusiasm making Rome more special. We threw a coin at the Trevi Fountain so we are sure to return. Much luck to you in business and family.

Tikva Gluck

Hi LUCA,

thank you for the follow up, We had a great driver and we were very pleased with him, we will use your service again and recommend your co. to our friends.

Best Regards.

I am happy to tell you that we had one of our best tours out of Naples. Our driver/guide, I think it was Stefani, was the very best. The scenery was amazing but our guide made it even more amazing. Our lunch was outstanding at a very special restaurant. We had time to wander alone a couple of times, which was nice also. Very well done. It is so good to know that we no longer have to take the ship's shore excursions which are always too many people and way too expensive. Keep your prices reasonable and you will rob the cruise lines of their tours! Thanks to Rick Steve's new book, Mediterranean Cruise Ports, more people will know there is a better way than cruise lines shore excursions. The van we had for 8 of us plus driver was very comfortable and perfect for this visit to the Amalfi coast. We did fine in Pompei without a guide and would recommend using Rick Steves' self guided tour (in the book or dowloaded to an Ipad for a spoken version). We did not need 2 hours there and some of us enjoyed the "bar" across the street from the entrance (near the train station)to relax in while we waited for the others. Perfect

Thank you for your help, Luca.

The Wilson's, Agoura Hills, CA, USA

Hi Luca

After discussing our many options with Luca via email, we felt comfortable enough to book seven separate day tours plus two additional 3 hour tours (Vatican and Pompeii). This turned out to be one of the best decisions that we made prior to our month long European vacation!  You guys are fantastic!  We had similar tours in five other countries and we can honestly say that none of them compare to Rome Driving Tours.  Every one of your guides spoke very clear English.  We can speak from experience that this makes all the difference, particularly when you're dealing with a family of six and trying to keep four children engaged.  The professional manner, in which they showed, educated and discussed all of Italy's spectacular sites while answering all of our questions made all the difference.  You all made us feel as if we were riding around with a good friend or family member.

Just wanted to take a moment to thank you and the entire Rome Driving Tours crew for making our family's trip to Italy the high point of our European vacation.

Thank you Luca, Paolo, Elizabeth, Constantine, Mena, Ewen, Max and Stephano for making our time in Italy truly memorable.  We can't wait to get back!

Maria

Hi Luca,

Thank you for contacting me.  I would like to take this opportunity to let you and Paolo know how much your services enhanced our trip to Italy! I feel so fortunate to have your selected your company for our Rome tour.  Paolo was so personable and knowledgeable in selecting all of the best sites to visit in Rome in one day,  not to mention  the wonderful restaurant he selected for lunch where we had the opportunity to meet you personally!  For months we had been communicating via email to finalize the details of the Rome itinerary so it was nice to meet you face to face. 

In the final leg of our trip (Muro Lucano), we realized that it would probably be beneficial to have a car service take us from the Rome train station to our hotel near the airport at 11:00 PM.  Without having pre-arranged this, we called you that morning to see if someone would be available from your company to pick us up and you were kind enough to tell us that you'd check into it and get back to us and you did!  You arranged for Giancarlo to meet us at 11:00 PM to take us to our hotel.  Again, you were a hero when we really needed you. 

You and your company were one of the components that made our trip so memorable and I would highly recommend you to my friends here in the USA!!!  Hopefully, one day our paths will cross again in a trip to Italy. 

Until then, best wishes for good health and continued success!

Dear Manuel and Luca,

On behalf of my family, I wanted to thank both of you for your kindness and generosity that was provided on the driving tours in Rome and down the Amalfi Coast. We all had a great time and absolutely loved Rome and Positano -which was a great suggestion. We had a wonderful experience and it was a pleasure to be assisted with such professionalism and expectational guides. 

We hope to visit again in the near future and we will make sure to tell our friends and family about your servies.

Thank you!

Henry

Ciao Luca,

I hope that you had a good time in Florence...sorry that we did not get to meet but I want to let you know that your partners (Paolo and Manny) out did them selves!  I also want to say ‘thank you' to Luigi for being so friendly and dependable.  The tours were terrific.  The cooking class, the Gladiator School, and the City tour were absolutely terrific.  It was also very enjoyable to meet and spend some time with Elizabeth and to hear about her and Paolo's movie experience.  I also want to thank you for helping me create such a memorable time in Rome for my family.  Be well.  And thanks again.

Best regards.

Kate

Hi Luca:

We are so glad that we chose Rome Driving Tours.  All of your drivers were early for their appointed times, and were very courteous and knowledgable.  It made our travels so much easier.  Your drivers were all able to answer any questions, while providing wonderful insight as we toured Rome.  We would be happy to recommend your company again. 

Thank you so much!

Best.

Jack

Dear Luca:

You and your team did a great job.  We enjoyed each of the tours and just had a wonderful time, thanks so much.  We will certainly use your services again when in Italy and we will recommend Rome Driving Tours to our friends.  The way you follow-up before during and after the tours is a real asset to your business.

Best regards.

Scott

Hi Luca, It was a pleasure to meet you in Pisa and thanks again for the wine.  We drank it on the ship.The tour was fantastic and we really appreciated having Massimo as our driver.

Beth Handysides

HI Luca

It was one of the highlights of our trip!!  Luca   you surpassed all our expectations and Kyle  kept asking where our "teacher " was, when we went inside the sights. 

We would do it again in a heartbeat.  Hope you come to visit when you come State side, would love to meet your wife and new baby!

Thanks again

Dear Luca

THE TOUR WAS FANTASTIC in every way.There are NO complaints. Everything was as I hoped. The car was on time,it was safe and comfortable,and Constantine drove carefully,His English was wonderful as was his knowledge of the city and history.Everything we asked him to try to do,he agreeably did if it was possible. Getting reservations ahead of time worked well.Thank you for the great dayI give you permission to use this email  for use in advertisement for your company.

Lorraine

Dear Luca,

Yes I did receive your Email but I have been very busy tring to get back to normal.  A little harder when you are older.  I enjoyed Rome very much.  I thought Paolo did a wonderful job describing everything and the cuisine for Lunch was excellent.  I know I will be back to Rome.  It was very exciting.

The trip to Amalfi, Positano, Revello, and Sorrento was a little different than Rome in that there were so many things to see around each curve.  The driver was very pleasant and courteous as Paolo but I guess I would.ve related better if he was older.  The trip that day was a lot of driving as opposed to Rome with stops for the historic sites.  Beautiful Coast line and scenic views.  My pictures came out great!

I want to thank you for giving me so  many things to remember.  I don't think I could have seen all those places by bus and walking .And the personal touch by the drivers.

I hope I have answered what you needed. 

Regards.

Satriales

Hi Luca

You guys were really great.  Had friends in Italy at the same time we were.  They hired driver for the 1st 4 days.  Then did a 10 day cruise.  Then back to Rome and a driver for another 4 days.  They had a good time and agreed that having a guide/driver was necessary.  But they did NOT have the driver/guides that we did with that personal flavor that you men add to your tours.  Your efforts made our trip UNFORGETTABLE.  Especially what you did for us in Venticano.

I will be sending to Rome Driving Tours a picture of Guiseppe (spelling?), the mayor and Uncle John.

Kind regards to all of you.  You are great.

PS:  Tell Paolo that sipping on diluted orange juice will get him through a long plane trip and help him survive the nicotine "rush".  He'll be able to travel to Pennsylvania with his wife and visit our Amish country

Dear Luca and Manny:

I wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed the private tour with your company during our recent trip to Rome.  Manny was a wonderful guide who made the day educational and fun.  Max, the Vatican guide, was a walking encyclopedia and very entertaining.  I only wish we could have had more time at the Vatican.  I will happily recommend your company to friends and family. 

Ciao

Jessica and Matt Klein

Hi Luca

Just a quick note to thank Paolo and Max for an extraordinary experience while we were in Rome.  The expertise and demeanor were very much appreciated.  

It proved to be a wonderful start to a wonderful trip.  We are back home in Florida now.  We have fondly remembered our time with you already and will

continue to do so for a long time to come.  

Thank you again.

Sherry, James, Sam & Carley

Hello Luca,

 We had a wonderful time with RomeDrivingTours. The four of us all say that the shore excursions with your company was the highlight of our trip. You did an excellent job putting together the packages in Rome & Naples.

Tell Manny, we are so grateful to him for all his help getting our tickets at the coliseum!! We enjoyed spending the day with you and you made our day a wonderful one. You are very good at your job!! You have an excellent team and

we enjoyed everyone so much! If you are every in the Dallas area, please give us a call, we would love to have you visit us!! Again, Thank you, for making our stay in Italy such a wonderful experience!! Thanks!!

Buonasera Luca,

We got back on Wednesday the 25th at about 16:05 (Miami time) We had a great time in Italy, no problems driving to all the places.

We are still trying to get back to the normal routine and going through the many photos and videos that we took over there. I'm saving the wine you gave us for Sunday.

I'm getting together with my brothers (one of them is cooking a pig) they want to see all the photos and hear everything about the trip.

We will definitely write a very positive review on our experience with you.

We keep talking about what a great time we had with you, we loved eating at Luiggi's.

Thank you very much for everything

Bill Melsop

Hi Luca:

We were very satisfied with your service; all the drivers/guides were great and all of the cars/vans were very comfortable. Thank you for everything.

Regards.

Maria & Sergio Padron

As always, you went beyond our expectations in your tour. We love all the places you picked for us, the times we share with you are very special and treasured memories. You are by far the most amazing tour guide we have ever met. Good luck and hope to see you again next year.

Dmitri & Elen Gartshein

My apologies for not responding to your emails sooner. Been busy ever since came back from vacation. Otherwise we are doing just fine.

We really enjoyed our time in Rome and would like to thank you for it.You professionalism and knowledge turned it into wonderful experience.For some time we could not stop talking about your tour and how much we enjoyed it.

Once again, thank you very much.

Carole and David Cohen

Dear Luca and Paolo -

Please forgive the delay writing to you. David and I have been traveling and just got back home. Initially when I first contacted your company, I was unsure and a little concerned as to the quality of the tour. I wanted a one day tour catered to our 2 teenage grandsons . My concerns were immediately changed after Luca called me and explained our options. The tour was everything and more than we expected. Paolo was patient, so knowledgeable and entertaining. We had as much time as we needed and missed none of the highlights - even an amazing lunch at a local restaurant and gelato after our visit to the Vatican. We all felt as though we were traveling with a friend. Thank you for an amazing expperience

Susan Warrender

Dear Luca,

We are home safe and sound and very much enjoyed our night tour of Rome. We really enjoyed watching the sun set over Rome while enjoying our surprize glass of wine and roses (nice touch). We were so lucky in that it was "Pink" night and we were able to go inside the Pantheon at night (far less crowded than our earlier visit), and that we were given choices as to what we wanted to see. My friends (who had only just arrived in Rome) are not much into pre-planning so never quite get around to seeing things. This tour meant they really got to visit the city and see places they would not have time for. Of course the "keyhole" was one of the highlights. Thanks again.

Grace Juzenas

Hi Luca,

You and Emmanuel are great tour guides. We had a wonderful time touring Rome and the Amalfi Coast using your services. We appreciated your promptness and professionalism throughout the tours. We, including my daughters Sydney and Shannon, enjoyed your humour and wit throughout your commentary. Emmanuel was very attentive and looked after everything. It was nice not having to plan anything and just to enjoy the beautiful scenery of the Amalfi Coast . The car with air conditioning was a blessing from the hot days in Rome .We would definitely recommend you to our friends and family. We wish the best on your upcoming nuptial and Emmanuel's little Sara. Regards.

Vinson P. Richter

Luca

we had a great time. Your tours were the highlight of the trip. Please send our regards to Franco and Ewen. By the way, what was the name of the gelato place you took us to in Rome? The one with the very cute blonde scooper? I'm referring you to someone: Marc and Sharon Watson. They are coming with my brother Rick and his wife Mary in late September. Not sure if they have a guide yet or not.

Jay and Mandy Kiely

Hi Luca,

Thank you again for giving our girls their first taste of Rome. I think that you did exactly what i had asked you to do which was to tailor the trip to the level of 10-15 year old girls who were overseas for the first time in their life. My youngest, Katie had begged us to go home the night before your tour because she was afraid of being in Rome. That all changed after your tour. You made them feel very safe and made the city seem manageable. She embraced all of Rome and Italy after your tour.Our town of Mountain Lakes is full of people who travel. In just one summer you picked up 3 clients from this little town in NJ. When you come to NY you should let us know and we will try to put something together to see you. I will be sure to keep you in mind with my clients as well.

Thanks again! Best regards.

Marcia & John Moulton

Hi Luca,

Just to thank you and your capable staff for the wonderful service and helping to make our Italian holiday very stressfree. Our friends Karen & Bob Bes were also impressed and they went in the S class to Naples airport. We went to Capri by ferry with our daughter and her husband and did not see the car.We went to the steak restaurant up the hill and everyone loved it. It was a Tuesday night and the singer was there, no one wanted to get back in the bus they wanted to stay.We will definitely recommend you to anyone we know who wants a stress free Italian holiday.

Best wishes for your wedding.

Vernessa and Mike

Dear Luca,

Thank you and your staff for the most exciting adventure we have ever had. It was such a pleasure being with you all. You all provided comfort, professionalism, sincerity, caring and above all an eye opening education on your beautiful city. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts!!You will be the talk of Las Vegas and Henderson, Nevada. We will indeed recommend you to all!!!

Sincerely.

Rick, Jeannie, Kaytlena and Jordan

Hi Luca,Sorry to take so long getting back to you. It didn't take us long to return to our busy lives.The cruise to Italy was an extraordinary experience that my family and I will always remember. Mostly, the touring experience that your guides provided us with exceeded all of our expectations. Each guide brought something unique to the tour, whether a life long affection for the region and an intimate knowledge of the local traditions, or a deep historical understanding of the sites we were visiting. All this and a sense that we were special clients of yours. We greatly appreciate your efforts in taking care of us. We will be happy to pass your name along to others who will be traveling to your homeland.Regards from our family.

DavePS

Luca,

My wife and I had an excellence time. Paolo, was excellence, his knowledge Rome, was outstanding, he was really nice and it was a pleasure to have him as our driver and guide, we consider him a friend. When we return to Rome we will use your service again.I have already recommended to my friends that if they go to Rome to use your service.

Thank you so much.

Congratulations on your marriage, hope for a long and happy union, my wife and I have been together for 33 years.

Laura

Hello Luca and Daniele:Will and I really enjoyed the two days we spent touring Rome with you. You did an outstanding job and I will definitely refer you to friends traveling to Italy. I have attached an article from a magazine regarding sites to see while in California for you and your wife to consider (San Francisco / LA). I hope you two enjoy your trip to CA / Hawaii. I definitely recommend seeing the sun rise at Mt. Haleakala and then bike riding down the mountain (it's cold at the top of the mountain and you have to get up really early, but it is worth it).If you are ever in VA please look us up. We would love to show you our city.Best of luck with your new joint venture! Regards.

Amanda and Zach

Dear Luca,

We were extremely happy with your services in Rome. The driver was wonderful and even let us know what different things were along the drive; such as buildings, parks, and different architecture. As well, he pointed out reliable restaurants. Your cars was beautiful, clean, and very comfortable. We were pleasantly surprised when the driver even walked us and our luggage to our hotel because we couldn't get there by car. It was the perfect stress-free start to our honeymoon. We would most definitely recommend your services to our friends and family, and especially use you in the future next time we are in Rome. Thank you for all your help!

Sincerely.

Sharon Watson

Hi Luca, Manny, Paolo and Daniele

We were very happy with all of our drivers and the guide! We especially liked Massimo, he was very informative and very easy to be with (all the drivers were, actually). Thank you again. I would definitely recommend your services to anyone I knew going to Italy!

Wilda Pear

Luca

We are now back home from our trip and wanted to take this opportunity to tell you that Dominic was fantastic. He did a great job taking us everywhere we wanted to go and entertained us along the way. All of us were very pleased with his tour and how well it was handled. I would recommend your company and especially Dominic to any potential customer.

Thanks.

Stephen

Hi Luca,

Thank you again for such a wonderful time. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and appreciated the extra attention in showing us around Rome and Tivoli.You are a great host and tour guide! I'll recommend you to all going to Italy for vacation. We are slowly settling back into the routine of work and daily life. (I need another vacation!!!)I hope that you will contact us when you are in New York. We would love to see you and meet your wife.

Kind regards.
