A fabulous experience for us! Giuseppe Magnosi was absolutely amazing! He was courteous, full of current and historical information, kind, respectful, spoke great english, an excellent driver & guide, and fun! We spent 8 full days touring with him around Rome, Vatican, Pompeii, Amalfi coast, and Tivoli, including airport transfers. He drove us, gave tours and set us up with other wonderful tour guides where needed. He even went out of his way to help us with lost luggage at Rome airport due to baggage handlers strike. His Mercedes Minivan was very comfortable with plenty of room for the three of us and lots of luggage! By the end of our stay, Giuseppe (Josef) was no longer just a driver and tour guide but rather family! He made our trip the highlight of a lifetime! We highly recommend using him! We will definitely use him again!

Giuseppe was amazing! He helped my family go to San Giovanni Rotondo to see Padre Pio's sanctuary, which was my mom's main reason to come to Italy for her birthday. We were originally going to take public transportation there, but since it was a long trip and we were with my older parents and relative, it would be much easier to get a driver there. He helped us out last minute and was able to make my mom's wish to see the sanctuary come true.

Not only was having a driver convenient, but it was great to have an Italian speaking person with us since the town that the sanctuary was in was very small with not many English speakers. Overall, the entire day trip was well planned, even suggesting us to get lunch at a restaurant in San Giovanni Rotondo. The trip was extremely comfortable in his vehicle and he expressed nothing but genuine kindness to us throughout the day.

Thank you so much Giuseppe for a great day trip and for helping make my mom's birthday wish come true! We will definitely refer family and friends to him and consider him if we need a driver whenever we are back in Italy :)

We loved Pino!!! He was prompt, helpful, courteous and just a pleasure to spend time with. We began our journey with him as our driver / guide but we left a special friend in Rome when we returned home. He would stop at great spots and offer to take pictures of our family. He found us a covid testing site. He suggested an alternate site than the one we planned and it turned out to be great advice. I just don't think you could ever go wrong with his service.

Driving in Italy, well what can I say! the further south you go the less they care for laws, rules, and other drivers, avoid City driving like the plague, we drove through top to bottom and on to scilly then Malta, stopping at several cities.
Actually driving in the cities was OK and we always used carparks in the centre, expensive but convenient. 9 to 12 months later we received three separate fines from the three cities we visited they came to over £1,400 one being over £700 for diving Down the same street twice, I consider my self to be courteous and law abiding driver, I have driven all over Europe but only in Italy have I had such fines, Italy seem to use visiting cars as an income source, florence councils biggest income is fining visiting cars, beware people it's enough to stop me visiting again, older people follow old rules younger people follow updated rules eg old rules entering a roundabout has right of way we're new rules give way as we do (UK)
Be careful folks

This negative review comes from someone I don't know. Client who wrote this negative review is not a part of my clientele. I ask trip advisor management to delete this bad review because I never took care of such client.

Joseph accompanied me on my one day pilgrimage trip to Padre Pio at San Giovanni Rotondo, last month. Although doing this trip in one day is quite hectic, but Jospeh tried his best to make it an easy ride. Joseph was very prompt, and was in the hotel even before the scheduled time. Through out the drive Joseph kept on giving me information about where we were. Half way through, Joseph pulled to gas station to fill his car with petrol, then he invited me for a cup of capuccino, and a croissant, which I thought was soo caring of him.
Upon arrival to San Giovanni Rotondo, it started raining cats and dogs, but it not prevent Jospeh from taking me around the shrine, pointing to me , and explaining to me the importance of each spot. We had to walk under the rain to go to the new chapel, Joseph was courteous enough to offer me his jacket to cover my head from the rain.
After a long and hectic day, Joseph dropped me at the hotel. After half an hour I got a call from the concierge to inform me that Joseph found a shopping bag that I have forgotten in his car....here I realised how genuine Jospeh was!!
I give Joseph 10/10....and whenever I visit Rome again, I will only use my friend Joseph's services!!

My clients arrived in Rome and after two days, called me to tell me their luggage had not arrived with them. they had called the airline, but to no avail. They were to leave the next day on a cruise, and Giuseppe (Joseph), owner of Italy Driving Guide, was to take them to the port at 1:00 PM. I called Giuseppe and asked if he could assist in the retrieval of the luggage.,He called the airline and determined that nothing could be done until the next morning. he called the clients and arranged to pick them up at the hotel, take them to the airpoort and get the luggage, then go to the port to board the cruise ship. Though this plan worked, it wasn't a smooth solution, taking much longer than expected. In spite of this, Giuseppe got them to the port on time and they embarked on their cruise. I am convinced that they would not have been able to get on their cruise (with or without their luggage) if it hadn't been for Giuseppe's assistance. .

Joseph,
Thank you so much for a wonderful and magical 12 days in Italy for
myself, Mary, Drew,and Joan! Joseph made our stay very special and
certainly made us feel like part of his family! Easily made adjustments to
our schedule and the trip to Venice (where we ALL enjoyed the gandala ride)
and St Marks square, and the shopping was very special, as was Pisa,
Florence, Assisi, and the guided tours in Rome. The last night was the most
special, when you set reservations at Zodiac and the evening with mystical
beauty, with the "tour by night "of Rome! The pictures we have are like post cards!
I cannot express and thank you enough for how special you made the Italy experience for our family! Mr. President was VERY impressed and if you are ever in the states "our door is open". You are more than a guide. You are a friend we will have forever.
We will recommend your services to anyone we know coming to Italy. Thank
you so much again! Gratia! Will send pictures to attach from Pisa, and
Venice (gandala).
Thanks again!!

Giuseppe guided our day trip from Rome to San Giovanni Rotondo. We enjoyed beautiful day made more pleasant by Giuseppe’s kindness and his accommodating demeanor. He is knowledgeable and experienced. His insight and helpful commentary about the life of San Pio di Pietrelcina made the tour more interesting. Highly recommend this tour service.

Joseph is such a wonderful man, driver and guide. He made our trip so easy and was a joy to talk to! One of his associates picked us up at Rome airport and then 3 days later, Joseph himself picked us up at our Rome apt and drove us to Pompeii, where he had arranged for a fantastic guide and then he drove us to Praino on the Amalfi Coast. He knew all the great sites and was funny and charming. Finally, he realized that we didn't have arrangements for getting to Naples from the coast and found us a driver for that trip as well. Love, love, love Joseph and will recommend him to everyone we know that is planning a trip to Italy! (Oh and he is a snappy dresser too! )
