Francesco Marrapese was an ideal tour guide. He met us at the Sorrento dock as my wife, two kids and I stepped off of the ferry from Capri. In a very professional manner, he showed us a wonderful day as driver and tour guide along the Amalfi Coast. He spared my wife and son their fear of heights as he... More

While Francesco was not personallt available to drive the four of us, his colleague, Maximo, gave us an outstanding tour with stops in Positano, Ravello, and Amalfi as well as Ponetone for lunch. He was very knowledgeable and helpful and provided us with an excellent tour of the coast. Would highly recommend Francesco and his group of guides.

We felt very lucky to have found Francesco (via our hotel's recommendation) to take us from Sorrento to Positano and back again. As both a driver and a tour guide, he was excellent; sharing his local knowledge in very good English and recommending a great restaurant for lunch. We would highly recommend him.

We had a private tour in a Mercedes van (driver plus four passengers). Our driver (Francesco) was very knowledgeable. The scenery was amazing. Good opportunity for photographs. Be prepared to do some easy to moderate walking. The weather was perfect. We visited Herculaneum in the morning. After lunch, we drove along the Amalfi coast. We made stops in Sorrento and... More

We booked Francesco for a tour of the Amalfi Coast, based on the favorable reviews on Trip Advisor. The reviews weren't wrong! Francesco is an excellent tour guide/driver. He picked us up at our hotel in Sorrento on time and we made our way along the coast. His driving was excellent and his knowledge of the area was incredible. He... More

We booked a full day tour of the Amalfi coast with Francesco in July 2013. What a great day! He replied very quickly to my many emails and provided us with a car seat for our 21 month old son. He knew a lot about the region, from vegetation and history, to soccer and economics. We were in the process... More

We had an absolute blast with Francesco! This tour was the perfect way to see the Amalfi Coast, especially if you only have a day. Francesco is a delight - he's knowledgeable and interesting, as well as really fun with a great sense of humor (and an excellent driver, even in the rain!). We visited Positano, Amalfi and Ravella (plenty... More

We hooked up with Francesco via Trip Advisor and have not been disappointed. Close to 200 top review ratings can't be wrong. He was on time every time and if it was not him personally who picked us up, then his colleague Marco was there as his stand-in and was as equally efficient, knowledgable and personable. Great transfers and tour... More

We love Francesco. We toured the Amalfi Coast with him in 2011 and engaged his services again for this trip. He is very knowledgable and provides a unique, first class experience. His prices are reasonable and he is worth every euro! We will be back in the future and look forward to touring with Francesco again! Grazie, Dr.Steven and Julie... More
