Just wanted to follow through with my word to Federico.. He was our driver for at least 3-4 days out of our 9 day European adventure. Federico was AMAZING!!!! He is the sweetest driver/tour guide and his English is superb. Federico was ALWAYS on time, waiting at our hotel or the cruise port to pick us up and recommended the best restaurants in Italy, which we all loved.. the food, gelato & restaurant recommendations were all excellent! He made sure we had a great experience and spouted non-stop historical facts on each and every city we visited or drove through. Basically anything you may be curious to find out about, Federico knows what it is & has extensive information on it. For example- "Fed, what is that monument way over there in the distance?" or "What is the name of that mountain?" He is so knowledgeable and extremely accommodating, as two members of our party -on two separate days- got sick! He even drove BACK to the cruise port to drop my brother off because he felt so bad. We hit traffic in Naples/Pompeii and he made sure we got to our destinations on time and adjusted our schedule accordingly. I can't describe how happy we were to have Federico as our driver for several days of the trip.. It was awesome because we really felt like Fed was our friend and he treated us like royalty! He gave us inside tips and tricks for each destination (like don't waste your money on a Vatican tour or to be careful when pick pocketers were in abundance) and was always waiting for us in his van right outside the exits. I can't explain how much we appreciated this company.. We did have a few other drivers for parts of the trip, like Gianluca & Ago, but, Federico was by far our favorite as we were with him for most of our tours. Monica, the secretary, works extremely hard all by herself & takes time replying to all emails and inquiries. This is a WONDERFUL small company with about 15 drivers in their fleet. I would recommend Shore Excursions Italy to anyone & everyone!!!! They were amazing! They even do shuttles to & from the airport! Don't waste your money on group tours with the cruise line or any other airport shuttle service. It really is worth the money to have your own driver & car - we left a nice tip every time. I can't express enough how happy and pleased we were with our experience. I am positive that when we visit Rome, again, (WHICH WE WILL!!!) we will be using Shore Excursions in Italy. Thank you guys for making our trip even more amazing! FEDERICO--WE LOVE YOU!!!!!!!!!! :)
