“Hello. Gratitude!!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2014

Hello!!!! I was vacationing in Sorrento in early June. Took a vacation trip to Positano and Amalfi. Very afraid to go because you have dangerous roads. Accompanying our Jack the excursion. He's a wonderful man, a very good driver and a lot of us spoke. Good, sustained and interesting man. With a sense of humor. I loved it. Many thanks to your company and a special thank you Jack. I am from Moscow, my name is Irina.

“Great Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2014

26 of us recently travelled to Sorrento for a wedding, we initially used Astarita for airport pick up but then also used them for Amalfi Coast trip and boat tour of the Amalfi Coast and Capri, the service we received from Antonio and Barbara was first class, nothing was too much trouble and their drivers were very knowledgable and helpful, when we did have a minor problem Antnio and Barbara were both there in person to sort it out immediately, cannot speak to highly of them and would certainly recommend them and will definitely use them again

“Best day of of our Med cruise vacation!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2014 via mobile

5 of us prearranged a daylong Amalfi coast tour. It was an absolutely memorable, jaw dropping experience. This was due in large part to our wonderful driver Nico who picked us up promptly at the port in Sprrento and gave us some fantastic experiences and memories of the beautiful Amalfi coast.
We never felt in any danger, despite the windy, precarious roads, thanks to Nico's calm. Deft ha sling of the Mercedes van. I would strongly recommend this as the only way to see the Amalfi coast - definitely don't try to drive it yourself!
Our first stop was in Positano where we were dropped off right in town and given 90 minutes for exploring/shopping in this picturesque village. We had prearranged lunch at La Tagliata above Positano which was a marvelous experience too.
Then it was on to Ravelllo - we had time to visit The beautiful gardens at Villa Ruffulo before other was sadly time to head back to the ship. Nico knew we wanted to see Amalfi, so he kindly stopped there briefly so we could see the church.
We arrived back at the cruise port after 6:00 pm after enjoying a marvelous day. Nico was an excellent driver and guide who never intruded on our conversations but always answered our questions and was very concerned that we enjoy our day. We certainly did!

“Great professional service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2014

We used this company for a private 8hr tour of Pompeii and Amalfi Coast. Great value for our party of 4.
Our driver was a lovely young man who took care of every detail including finding a great restaurant in Positano for lunch. Nothing was a trouble. The guide provided for our tour of Pompeii was also excellent.
As a result we then booked this company for a transfer from Naples port to Rome hotel, again a great choice. On time courteous professional service,

“Review of transfer from Naples to Positano by Astarita car service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2014

Can't rate this company highly enough they had a driver to meet us at the airport and delivered us as close as they could to our villa (not many roads in Positano). The driver then pre arranged our transfer pick up point for the following week. The two drivers we had were very friendly and spoke excellent English. They shared their knowledge of the area with us and made suggestions about places to visit. Definitely the way to travel if you want a stress free journey.
My thanks to Barbara in the office as well for her emails. The cost was reasonable as it was shared between four of us so 130 euro each way was well worth it.
