      AMAZING, WONDERFUL! I do not know where to begin to rate this experience. I want to first recognize Nunzia, our Guest Ambassador. Nunzia is so helpful and responsive and just simply lovely. Having never been to Italy, she was able to answer my many questions and make sure our trips were just perfect. One of the things I love about Italy are the cypress trees and it was a main question in the beginning (not realizing just how many there are everywhere :)). She gave our driver specific instructions for "trees" and he took us to a famous spot that people seek out near where "Gladiator" was filmed...seemed to be the middle of nowhere, but absolutely beautiful! When a last minute train strike came up, even after our tours were over, Nunzia walked me through some of the details and said she'd be there if we needed them for additional transport needs - even though it'd be last minute. I'd also like to recognize our driver, Daniel - he's the best! He was so kind and friendly. We ran into traffic due to an accident/construction. He made sure that we weren't short on time and to take our time to see whatever we had planned to see. He did not rush us in any way. We had Daniel for both of our trips - Val D'Orcia with wine tasting and Cinque Terre & Pisa. It was nice to see a friendly face on day 2, and more importantly, we didn't worry about a thing. He helped us with the Cinque Terre train tickets and was there when those trains delayed our return. Everything was absolutely beautiful and we could enjoy it that much more because we knew Daniel would get us where we needed to go. This review in no way encompasses how wonderful this experience was. Italy was on our bucket list for such a long time, and Nunzia, Daniel and Joe Banana made it so comfortable and easy to enjoy it. Do not hesitate at all to book them and we plan to do so when we return for southern Italy. They are simply the best! Thank you!!

      Amazing experience with Joe Bananas!
      I can not begin to tell you how wonderful this tour is. Stephano picked us up from the Naples port and whisked us way to Sorrento. A stop to taste Limcello began our morning. And then many stops along the coast for photos. Our driver was light hearted, fun and was just a pleasure. We had plenty of time to walk around Sorrento and shop. The lunch, with and amazing view was one we will never forget. Our private guide in Pompeii was wonderful and answered all our questions. We were a bit nervous about our return to the ship and our driver made absolute sure we returned at our requested time. Highly recommend and would us again.

      JUST DO IT
      If you are considering using Joe Banana, JUST DO IT! Exceptional personal customer service, great tours, and beautiful immaculate cars! Nunzia was excellent and made sure we were taken care of even when we made last minute schedule changes. All of our drivers were professional and friendly and our private tour of Pompeii with Paulo was top shelf! Everything was wonderful.

      Private Transfer Legends in Amalfi Coast!
      I wanted to give a recommendation for private transfers, to a business I was so grateful to find while visiting Sorrento. I did find it hard to locate recommendations for this so I hope sharing this helps someone else. We used Joe Banana’s to get from Sorrento to Napoli Centrale to catch an early train. Connected by what’s app to book very easily, professional to deal with throughout, Chiara was on the chat and couldn’t have made things simpler, she was wonderful. Catello our driver was such a warm and friendly driver, very caring and helpful, even made sure we got right into Napoli Centrale and explained the best place to grab some away Brekky. We have otherwise traveled completely by public transport (bus, ferry & train), so we are mindful of the budget. However this was one time we needed to use a private transfer (for a few reasons, not just the early train … long story), so it was last minute really and this business was so good to deal with. Really made our day! Joe Banana Italy is their page. Special thanks to Chiara and Catello from our family.

      Lemon tour with amazing food
      We had an amazing day with our driver Stefano. He took us to a Limoncello factory then all along the Amalfi Coast. The highlight of the day was with Fiore and his lemon grove and restaurant. We had the best meal and even made Limoncello. Highly recommend this tour.

      Joe Banana is TOP Banana!
      Joe Banana was first rate in all respects. We used them for five inter-city transfers during a two-week trip. We researched and spoke with several other companies and Joe Banana was the clear winner for us. They were not the cheapest, but their customer service folks were by far the easiest to communicate with. They paid close attention to our concerns and wishes which gave us good reason to be confident they would hold up their end of the bargain. That peace of mind was worth more than the difference in price. There were eight of us, and while some of the other companies sounded like they could handle such a group with luggage in one vehicle, only Joe B convinced us they could. Every transfer was stress-free and went like clockwork. The vehicles were new, clean and extremely comfortable. The drivers all showed up several minutes early and were helpful, professional and polite. Several were extremely personable and knowledgeable and downright fun to ride with. The customer service team followed up with us during every transfer to make sure all was well. Each transfer was several hours long and involved an intermediate stop of an hour or two (at our request) at a place suggested and arranged by Joe Banana. Each stop was a very enjoyable experience and a nice break too! I could go on, but to sum up, Joe Banana was better than advertised and we will use them again if we ever return to Italy. Grazie mille to Maria, Anna, and the rest of the customer service team and to all the drivers!

      Great Day in Amalfi
      We wanted a private tour of Pompeii and the Amalfi Coast during our stay in Rome. I knew Joe Banana Limos was the right choice for us, having experienced their service several years ago. It was a breeze booking with Chiara, and her follow up was thorough. Our driver, Catello, was awesome: conscientious, accommodating, and just a great guy. His restaurant recommendation in Positano was excellent, and he went out of his way to make sure everything was right. Catello’s handoff to Pierpaolo, our guide in Pompeii whom one of our group had kept in touch with from our earlier Joe Banana experience, was seamless. Paolo was knowledgeable and fun on our tour of Pompeii. Two of our group who had been to the site before loved Paolo’s insights about this fascinating place. And, again, Catello drove us safely back to Rome. What a great day! Thanks so much to all!

      Very reliable
      My family travelled from Pennsylvania to Amalfi attending a wedding last month. I reserved the transfer service from NAP to Amalfi with stops at Mt. Vesuvius and Pompeii. Then, I used the company again for transfer back to Naples train station. Everything worked out seamlessly. Both drivers were extremely reliable, friendly and professional. Maria was my contact person, and she was very helpful for arranging my trip. Thank you! I would like to recommend this company to other people.

      Great Guided Tour of Pompeii
      We booked a private tour of Pompeii with tickets included and it was great. We were on a driving tour and met our Pompeii guide right near the entrance. Paulo our guide already had our tickets and we went right in. And he is a wonderful guide, very passionate about what he does. He has so much knowledge about Pompeii and what life was like back then. He took us to all the main sights there and was also very entertaining. Pompeii is a big place and I can't imagine wandering around on our own without a guide. We would have missed a lot.

      Best Tour Company for the Amalfi Coast
      This was an incredible tour! We had a wonderful tour guide, Catello, who was incredibly knowledgeable, friendly and funny. He is the type of person I would love to contact again if I was back in the region. We were picked up at the port for a day trip to Positano, Sorrento and then Pompeii. Going in a small group of only 8 people allowed us to travel on roads the buses are not able to go. We also were able to get very close to the town centers, which will save your legs in steep Positano! Our driver gave us an option to take more time in Sorrento or go to lunch at a spot his family loves. We opted to take him up on this and had THE BEST pizza in all our stops we made in Italy. Finally, the company arranged a fantastic tour of Pompeii with and incredible guide. None of this should be missed. So very glad we went with this company!

      Bruno is the BEST!
      Our driver Bruno was excellent! Very informative and spoke good English. Taught us alot about Italy and helped us plan our day to see the most we absolutely could. Would reccomend Joe Banana and especially Bruno if you are in the Naples area.

      Prompt, courteous, and knowledgeable drivers!
      We booked many trips with JBL during our recent stay in Italy. We were a group of 8 adults and were all impressed with the service. Catello Buonocoro was The Best driver! Odoardo (spelling?) took my husband and I to remote parts of Lucca looking in cemeteries for our ancestors. All drivers were right on time and were knowledgeable about the region - giving some history and pointing out landmarks along the way.

      Excellent experience!
      Our driver Catello was fantastic! He met us punctually upon our arrival at Naples airport and was so very nice and courteous and friendly. Catello was also a careful driver and we felt safe and secure on the drive to Amalfi. We would recommend Joe Banana to everyone as the service is exceptional. Nunzia was also great to deal with via phone and always responsive to our requests. Thank you Joe Banana!

      The Best Driver in Italy
      We went to Italy with friends, there were 8 of us. Cátello picked us up in Tuscany and drove us to Sorrento. He is a great driver and made us all feel comfortable. There were a few nervous passengers among us but everyone seemed to feel calmer after a few minutes. He speaks English very well and we heard about his family and a little about his life on the long trip down to Sorrento. He got us to our hotel and made sure we got checked in. Two mornings later we were all happy to see Catello back to take us on our tour of the Amalfi Coast. He had been a bus driver there and knew the area very well. So driving the big Mercedes van seemed easy to him. Driving takes some practice because the roads are narrow, crowded and full of scooters passing on the right and the left of you. Catello is a polite driver, patient and careful. Most of all he is a pleasure to spend time with.

    I contacted Joe Banana Limos as we were going to Rome to celebrate a friends 60th birthday. She wanted to see Mount Vesuvius and Pompeii so we caught the train to Naples and pre booked our own private tour through Joe Bananas, the tour was well thought out and planned for us but the weather had other plans so our driver just rearranged the itinerary and we had an amazing day. We didn't get to walk Vesuvius but we had a very long vineyard lunch and got to sip limoncello in Sorento.
