We were a group of four using Davide’s services while visiting the Italian lakes, and we couldn’t have been more pleased! Davide picked us up in Milan and drove us to Stresa on Lake Maggiore. David also picked us up at our Stresa hotel on two other days for tours to Lake Orta, Verbania, and Locarno. In addition he drove us from Stresa to our next stop in Bellagio on Lake Como. He was a very safe driver, which we greatly appreciated. David was so friendly and was very informative about the areas we were visiting. He always pointed out scenic views and offered to stop for us to take pictures when it was possible to do so safely. We really appreciated his flexibility when we had to change our plans due to the weather. We were able to do some other sightseeing within the same time frame we had booked, and David made suggestions as to places we might visit. We all enjoyed getting to know Davide during the four days he drove us. I highly recommend Davide’s Blue Taxi!!

Dear Oboedel, it was my pleasure to be your private driver around lake Maggiore, Orta and Como and I am glad I suggested the visit to the botanical gardens of Villa Taranto in Verbania that you enjoyed so much! Thank you for choosing me for your private transfers and excursions! Ciao, Davide

Lake Orta and the view of Isola San Giulio are up there with Italy’s must see’s.
Staying in Stresa on Lake Maggiore, transport options to Orta San Giulio are limited in October.
Blue Taxi was perfect. Davide collected me at my hotel for a three hour morning itinerary. First to Sacro Monte for the chapels and the spectacular view of the lake then he explained how to take the 10 minute walk down to the town, how to get a boat to the island and back and promptly collected me in the main square for the trip back to Stresa.
Highly recommended driver service.

We really enjoyed our tour to Lake Orta with Davide. Davide is very personable and we learned so much from him about the Lake Orta area. We also used Davide's services (Davide's Blue Taxi Service) on several other days, and we couldn't have been more pleased. I would highly recommend Davide for any transportation needs if you are in the Milan/Lake Maggiore area. He was very responsive to our emails to book his taxi services for sightseeing that we did on our own too.

David was an expert and congenial driver. He was attentive, polite and extremely knowledgeable about the area, since he also lives there. His driving was impeccable as well. We highly recommend him!

The lake is beautiful. We had an excellent experience and would highly recommend this tour! Lake Orta is very scenic. We really enjoyed the boat trip to visit the island.

Arranged with David before we left UK to do 2 tours. One to Zermatt for The Matterhorn and the other for a trip to Lake Orta. David was very punctual with timings and keeps in contact if need be throughout the day by phone. His English is excellent (we had a laugh teaching him some new phrases). His vehicle is very comfortable and clean. He explained the routine for each day and we had plenty of time to do as we pleased. He gives you plenty of local information as you go along. We would love to go back to Lake Maggiore and would not hesitate to use David again. Well done David and thank you very much on behalf of our friends. Well recommended. Caio

We decided to visit Orta San Giulio, cross over to Isola San Giulio and the Sacro Monte di Orta. I had contacted Davide Ferri and his price for going to Orta from Stresa and getting back was very reasonable. Davide is a nice person but above all knowledgeable about the area. When we told him that we wanted to visit the Sacro Monte he suggested to us to get us on top of the hill so that we will follow that attraction going downwards. On our way back we took another road which made our journeys more attractive. Davide is well mannerd but above all a safe driver.

We had booked a tour with Micaela Lucini to Lake Orta which included her husband, Davide, picking us up at the ferry station in Stresa, driving us to Lake Orta, and then bringing us back again. Davide was right there to meet us at the ferry with his van (plenty of room for the 4 of us) and we loved hearing his stories as we drove the 30 minutes to Lake Orta!
Davide was delightful, a treasure and so kind. He even stopped in Gignese on the way back so that we could go to the Museum of the Umbrella--who knew how cool that could be?!! Don't miss out on Davide and his many options for getting around in the Lake Maggiore area!
