“Great Tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013

We were very happy with our city of Rome tour with Ivano. We has limited time in the city so it was great to have a guide to take us to all the major sites and the to have the history explained as well. The lunch and coffee stops were great as well. Nice to see the city through a locals eyes. Thanks again.

“money very well spent.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013

Our family spent a day being shown the sights and highlights of beautiful Rome with DGS. Ivano is a man whose love and passion for Rome enhanced our experience no end. We were free to choose our own itinerary, but were more than happy to be guided by Ivano's suggestions. There was a perfect mix of getting out at places to take photos and spend an hour or half hour as we wanted, on our own, and a guided commentary, both in the (very comfortable) car and walking along and inside various attractions. There is no way we could have known Rome like we got to with Ivano's historical background, and highly recommend this company and this way of experiencing Rome. Professional, punctual, personable and a perfect way to see a city that he clearly knows and loves. Extra highlights included tickets to Colloseum that avoided lining up, entree to a pretty amazing coffee place and introduction to a pizza place where the 'locals' eat. Magnifico!

“DGS Is Great!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

In Jan 2011 my wife and were part of a group from a cruise ship and that used DGS. Because we had such a wonderful experience we used them again in June 2012 for us and a group of 6 friends and family. We used them in Livorno in Rome (2 groups) and the Amalfi coast. We had GREAT drivers for all the tours in 2011 and 2012. They were very knowledgeable, professional and made our tours fun and enjoyable. Ivano the owner and hos wife Roberta were excellent in responding to our emails. When we go back to Italy, we hope it will be an area serviced by DGS. I highly recommend DGS.

“Driver Guide Services -- Pisa and Lucca”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

We booked a private tour with our group of 12 that included two children (3 and 7). We were picked up on time, directly from our ship and taken to Pisa first. We enjoyed the sites there and then went on to Lucca. I would not have known to tour this city on my own and was so glad our guides directed us there. It was a beautifully preserved, walled medieval town. I only wish we had more time to stay.

For lunch, our guides took us to a local farm to eat, Enzo Carmignani, situated on a hill near the medieval village of Montecarlo. The family has been making wine since 1386. When we arrived, Elena Carmignani showed us the wine in barrels and the bottling and labeling process. Elena proceeded to serve us a multi-course meal in her garden. It was exquisite and each came with a wine pairing. It was, by far, the best excursion we had during the two week cruise.

“Pleasant and efficient tours with DGS”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013

We didn't stay for a long time in Rome and Naples. We were looking for an efficient way to get the best of each city. DGS provided such service. In addition each of the two guides we had was friendly and professional. We recommend, specially if you don't want to take any risk of disappointement.
