“Pisa, Florence, and Rome: Cruise Excursions”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

As a first time visitor to Italy, with very limited time because we were on a cruise, we wanted to see as much as possible. We took the advice of a friend and booked two tours through driverinrome, rather than taking the cruise ship excursions that we usually took. We were not disappointed. At both ports our guide was waiting for us with a sign that was easy to spot. That eased our anxiety immediately. Our group of 8 ranged in age from 53 to 83, so not everyone wanted to do exactly the same thing. Not a problem. In Pisa only two of us wanted to climb the steps to the top of the leaning tower--our guide took care of the other six with strolling in the courtyard and shopping. In Florence we saw more than we ever imagined we could--and had a great stop for pizza and gelato. After a full 8 hours, we were back at our ship right on schedule, and paid the balance of our fee in euros as agreed. Never had a problem. The same was true in Rome. Our guide first gave us an overview tour of the city with much interesting commentary. Then we were whisked to the front of the lines at the Colosseum and at the Vatican because of our "skip the line" tickets purchased for us by driverinrome. The lines were hideously long--we certainly wouldn't have had time to see all we did without those special tickets. Today's lunch was lasagna at a wonderful place our guide chose, followed by delicious Italian pastries. In the afternoon we took time for shopping, for touring more cathedrals, for tossing coins into Trevi Fountain, for climbing the Spanish Steps, and for admiring the beauty of this ancient city. This Texan recommends driverinrome without reservation. They were all we hoped for and more.

“Outstanding Personal Tour of "Splendors of Rome"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012

We just finished spending the day with "Big Lucca" on an amazing tour of Rome. Lucca was outstanding and added many personal touches to the trip. Our tour was a highlighters tour and we gave Lucca a lot of freedom in choosing places to visit and we had no complaints. We would use and recommend Lucca again in a heart beat. This was the 3rd tour with driversinrome and they are very good, prompt, courteous and informative drivers. We have another tour already planned for tomorrow and hope that it's with Lucca.

Dear Chet,
thank you for taking the time to write such a wonderful review.
A happy client is our greatest reward and the fact that it is not your first tour with us, could not please us more. Luca says a big 'Grazie!'
We look forward to hearing from you next time you come to Italy.
Until then... ciao,

“Best vacation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2012

We used Driverinrome services for our vacation in Italy and have only great things to say about this service. Drivers were prompt, safe and friendly for transfers to airports and trains and our tour to Pompeii and Positano. All recommendations by Milena for tour guides and lunch in Positano worked out wonderfully. Gian Marco, our driver for the whole day tour, also had great recommendations for other sights to see when back in Rome. The day spent with him was so much fun, he truly made the trip our own tour, at our own pace. Charming and knowledgeable, it was as if touring with a friend. Milena also helped with transfers in Venice which also went incredibly smoothly. Would highly recommend Driverinrome and will use for future trips.

“Relax & Enjoy the Tour....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012

We have done a total of 5 different tours with Driver in Rome, three of them with Danielle as our driver, in two seperate trips to Rome & Florence. They came highly recommended to us. We had so much fun with our original tours we returned with friends three years later. On both visits we came in on a cruise ship and in both cases we visited in September. Danielle was waiting for us first thing each morning. They are very flexible with their tours and have no problem changing things up if you want to do something different. Danielle took a group of 8 of us to a vineyard in Tuscana and we harvested grapes in the sun along side the other workers. Afterwards we tasted wine and visited the Tuscan Countryside. They make sure you get a full day of activity but take care to make sure you get back to the ship in time. We all highly recommend Driver in Rome. We booked with them on-line and did not have to make a payment until the day of the tour. We can't wait to return for another visit (and the girls can't wait to see Danielle). They are true professionals.

“Wonderful tour.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012

We only had one day to spend in Rome and our time was so well spent with Daniel, our driver. We saw all of the sites on our "have to" list and enjoyed Daniel's personal narrative, courtesy and knowledge. We have recommended "driverinrome" to everyone we know who is traveling to that marvelous city.

Hello and thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us. I wish you had more than a day in Rome, but if there is one person who can help you make the best of it, that is Daniele and his Driverinrome.
Thank you for recommending us to your family and friends.

Looking forward to hearing from you again.
Best wishes,
