“Driving tour of Rome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2014 via mobile

The service was excellent. Driver was waiting for us and the drive to Rome was quick and comfortable. Maurizio drove us all around Rome & the Vatican & packed a lot into the day and thoroughly enjoyed it!

“2 fabulous tours!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2014

We were a group of 7 adults and we had 2 fabulous days with Paolo.We scheduled an all day tour of Rome and on another day, we went to Pompeii and the Amalfi Coast. On both days, the tours were flexible and we were able to make changes as needed. We were in Italy for 14 days and our tours with Paolo were a highlight of our trip, definitely 5+. We will be returning to Rome next September and we want to schedule another tour with him.

“Amazing day in Tuscany”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2014

Our group of five booked a tour of Tuscany as an excursion on our recent Mediterranean cruise. Elena was very helpful in booking and confirming our tour. Our guide, Gian Marie, was great. He was waiting for us with a sign when we got off the boat. After a drive through the countryside, our first stop was the charming town of Volterra. Gian Marie gave us a quick tour and pointed out the ruins, and then we had time to explore on our own. He knew the best places to stop for photos and was happy to take pictures of our group. We had an amazing wine tasting at Fattoria Sant'Appiano, where we tried more than 10 wines and had snacks. Next, we stopped for lunch (and more wine) at a restaurant with an amazing view of the countryside. Our guide chose a restaurant that could accommodate my sister with celiac disease. Our last stop was the town of San Gimignano, where we had free time to explore. We arrived back at our boat with plenty of time to spare. I would highly recommend a tour of Tuscany with Gian Marie and Rome Driving Tours. We had a wonderful day that we'll remember forever.

“Fantastic Experience....Book Them They Are Simply The Best!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2014

Our first dealings with Elena were impressive and we knew we wanted to enjoy the professionalism of this company for all our tours in Italy. We had booked them last year but unfortunately had to cancel our cruise/tours when I broke my leg three weeks before. I called Elena feeling terrible that I had to cancel at such a late date especially since she phoned me and went the extra mile in arranging our tours but she was very considerate. I thought it is one thing to be so pleasant when all is going well but to show the same consideration in adversity just added to my confidence that I had chosen a wonderful tour company. When we rebooked the same trip this year, we had the same wonderful experience communicating multiple times via phone and email.

It was wonderful to know that we would be met on time and enjoy exceptional tours with Francesco
(Very knowledgeable.....a walking encyclopedia) for the Amalfi coast, Sammy for Rome. Maria for the Vatican and a transfer with a very friendly driver to our hotel near the airport. Francesco knew exactly how to ensure we saw so many places on the Amalfi coast that most did not believe was possible in one day. We were so happy he added beautiful Ravello and we even had time to run into Pompeii for a quick view as we did not want to spend a lot of time there. He even got us the area special pastry made fresh for us at his cousin's bakery (yummy). Sammy picked us up at Civitevecchia and we once again saw far more than we thought was possible enjoying his friendly personality and superior knowledge of Rome. The next day we met Maria for our Vatican tour which was wonderful and we highly recommend her as she added so much to our overall experience. Before we went in the Sistine chapel she had explained the context of the paintings well in advance which really enhanced our enjoyment. She provided all the background information/stories which made our tour come alive and far more interesting. All the tours through Rome Driving Tours exceeded our expectations and without exception were carried out by very knowledgeable, friendly and highly professional guides. We could not have been more pleased and would make the same choice for all our future trips to Italy........they are simply the best! I admire Elena's exceptional organization skills as I sent her numerous adhoc questions and got everything back organized by date/tour/price and every question was answered, confirmations were accurate and very professional. Thank you for making our first trip to Italy so amazing.

This is a great company in all respects and highly recommended!!
