We had a very enjoyable day tour with Paolo from Joe Banana Limos. We had heard about the company from the podcast Untold Italy, so when we wanted a guide to help us visit the ruins at Paestum and a Mozzarella farm they instantly came to mind. We loved our experience. The visit to the Mozzarella farm (Azienda Agricola Tempio) was really interesting and the food at the cafe there was delicious (Buffula Burrata was amazing). Paulo also took us to a Buffalo mozzarella place that made the best yogurt! In addition to the delicious Buffalo farm experiences, we visited the Greek ruins and museum at Paestum. Paulo spoke great English, he was knowledgeable about the history of the area, the architecture of the buildings and he shared just the right amount of info with us. Last, he took us to see the sunset from a beautiful vantage point in Agropoli, a great way to end our great day with him. Later in our trip, we hired Joe Banana Limo again, this time to take us from Sorrento to Naples. Nick was our driver for that day and he was very friendly, helpful and he shared interesting insights with us along the way. Highly recommend Joe Banana Limos for the tours and the drivers!

I LOVE Joe Banana Tour Company. We booked 3 seperate private boat excursions with the Joe Banana team, and have never been disappointed. The communication is easy, response time is quick, and the service is EXCELLENT. The skippers are knowledgeable and friendly, and we had a wonderful time every time. I have recommended Joe Banana to numerous friends and family and everyone is always overly satisfied with the level of service they get. Highly recommend booking any excursion with them, and I count the days down to when I'll be in Italy again - no question I'll be booking with them again!

This was our second experience with Joe Banana and it was great. We used them for airport and hotel transfers as well as tours. Our tour guide Paolo was amazing for not only his knowledge but for handling my wife who his not a big fan of driving fast or on cliffs. He is also a great photographer. Every tour was great and especially in these crazy times private tours and transfers are the way to go. Paolo was always on time if not early. Vans were very comfortable. You can tell he really loves his country and teaching people about its history, beauty and food. Customer service was also great. They answered my wife’s a million questions very quickly and even called me in the US from Italy to make sure our ticket times for the Vatican was ok. Can’t wait to go back and will definitely use them again.

This is going to be a long review, but its worth reading. Travels started to open up and we decided to do Italy. We never had done vacation in Italy before and with the whole situation with Covid-19, we also wanted to be cautious. We did Como, Venice, Tuscany and Rome. However, when you think of all the small towns and villages you pass along the way from point to point, we ended up seeing easily 12 to 13 places. I actually found Joe Banana randomly in google and I was so glad that I made that choice to reach them. Everything from start to end was just phenomenal. Starting with reaching out to them via email which they responded very fast and we moved along with numerous more emails. I had tons of questions and Marie was very patient and responded. I had to make a call to them and I was attended by Giovanni and he took over from her. Every attention to detail that I wanted, my requests for bigger room sizes, changes to my itinerary, Giovanni and his team handled it all perfectly. As i live in Singapore, we moved onto whatsapp for easier communication and it truly made me as ease. They even helped to book my pre-departure covid tests for my family and I. Its like even before stepping into Italy, the team gave me all the 200% assurance that everything is sorted, confirmed etc. Rarely would people get this kind of assurance with travel agencies, but with Joe Banana Travel, I'm confident to say that every client is treated so well and you feel at ease. For our trip, we were assigned to Luca. I cannot thank Joe Banana enough for assigning Luca to us. HE WAS AMAZING! He was not a driver for us, but like a friend who joked, shared and laughed together with us. He was always available when we needed anything and also very resourceful when I needed to find out about certain information about a place or item I would like to take. He knew that my 10 yr old son loves history and he was even sharing and entertaining him with facts and fun stuff. What was an additional perk for us is that he takes great pictures. So, if you're ever assigned to Luca and carry a DSLR camera, he will really take nice pictures for you to bring home. He is so attentive to detail that even with stuff that we had forgotten about like to buy something, he remembers. The 3 guided tour guides that we had, Franchesca for Florence, Igor for Venice Gondola and Rita for Rome were just too good. Anyone can be a tour guide, but these folks are truly the best ones out of thousands available. Its evident that Joe Banana hand picks their guides. All in all, Italy was simply BEAUTIFUL not just cos its a beautiful country, but cos of everything from start to end for all these following reasons: Having a comfortable ride that had sufficient space for 6 luggage and 2 big duffle bags, a driver who became a friend that made us so comfortable and happy. The guided tours, the other private tours like Parnassian Regena Cheese, Balsamic Vinegar, 2 wine tastings, Pasta making class, attending Vatican mass, all our accommodation was too good and of cos really just having a good time, with no worries. Not everyone would experience like how we did and its only cos Joe Banana made it happen. Thank you so much Giovanni and team. You have set the bar extremely high for any other travel agency.

We had a wonderful experience with Nick on our tour of Positano, Ravello, and Pompeii. Nick was extremely kind, knowledgeable, and professional. We also booked airport/Sorrento transfer (and back) through Joe Banana and we couldn't have been more satisfied with that service as well. I would highly recommend using Joe Banana for all of your transfer and tour needs. We will definitely utilize their services again in the future. THANK YOU!
