Our family of 16 members, including 8 children ages 2 - 17, recently came to Campania for a month to do a heritage journey and tour of the region. After booking Villa Alce in Fontanarosa for a month we asked our Italian friends to recommend someone to arrange transfers, visits and tours. Gaetano Petrillo, The Wine Bus Man, who is a local from this region was recommended because of his fluent English and incredible knowledge of this area. We worked with him for 6 months via What's App. We gave Gaetano our desired visits, tours and transfers. He arranged our schedule, not only pleasing our needs, but included his professional recommendations. While in Campania, not only was our schedule met, but his availability was beyond required. This type of service is unheard of when using Travel Agents. Needless to say we were all more than pleased with Gaetano, The Wine Bus Man. He went out of his way to make sure our heritage journey was a complete success. Thank you Gaetano for giving us so much happiness and many precious memories we will never forget! ❤️

Gaetano made my visit to my grandfather’s hometown of Montemiletto one of the most memorable experiences of my life. I could only provide him with my grandfather’s name and year of birth and had no knowledge of any family in the area. Through his genealogical research and local contacts, he not only found many family members in the area but also traced my ancestry back to my great great grandfather. He contacted my cousins in the area, arranged meetings with my family and drove me wherever I need to go in the area to meet them. In addition to his genealogical research Gaetano is an excellent tour guide. Spending a day with him touring the area, explaining local history and customs was an added bonus. A trip to the Buffalo Mozzarella Cheese factory for lunch (a must if you’re in the area) and stops at the local wineries topped off a perfect trip. Gaetano treats his clients like family and after spending time with him you’ll think of him as family too. Already have plans to go back next year.

Amazing service, extremely helpful. Made the trip a lot easier. Couldn’t recommend enough. Would use again this service again if I go to Italy again. Well priced- my and my boyfriend used their services from Naples station to piano to sorrento, it was reasonably priced unlike taxis

My wife and I just spent three days in Montemiletto researching my wife’s grandparents’ families. They both left Montmiletto more than 100 years ago and settled in Massachusetts. We worked with Gaetano Petrillo to help us in this endeavor. My son had also worked with him more than ten years ago when he and his wife visited Montemiletto, so we knew that he was going to more than meet our expectations. He picked us up at the airport in Naples and drove us to the Casa Glenda guest house where he had arranged for us to stay. Good choice! It was nice and newly renovated and had everything that we needed for our stay. The bonus was that it was right in the middle of the old town.

Over the next three days, Gaetano introduced us to ten of my wife Marie’s second cousins. His English is excellent, and our Italian is not! He was able to make phone calls to many of the cousins to arrange meetings with them. He even accompanied us to dinner at a cousin’s house one night and was very busy translating for us in both directions all evening. It was like he was part of the family! What a great time!

We also made several stops at the Montemiletto City Hall researching ancestral information of my wife’s family. The city hall is in an old monastery. Gaetano is an expert in genealogy. He was able to easily find all the information that we were looking for. On one our visits to city hall, he even introduced us to the Mayor of Montemiletto, Massimiliano Minichiello.

Gaetano also drove us to the Greek ruins in Paestum on the Gulf of Salerno as well as lunch at a buffalo mozzarella cheese production farm/restaurant nearby. The food was great there and he knew all the staff.

It was a great visit to Montemiletto, and Gaetano Petrillo made it even better. We highly recommend his services. We consider him a dear friend.

We had an amazing time on the Wine Bus! It was an exceptional experience and I highly recommend for wine lovers or for those who just want to learn more about wine. Gaetano is extremely knowledgeable and I will recommend for all of my friends and family who visit Italy.

We had a very good experience with Gaetano Petrillo during our trip to Amalfi Coast, Ravello and Salerno. He was always discreet, friendly, helpful and always on time. His car was always clean. He always wanted to offer the best service for us and to make our trip as safe and comfortable as it could be. We felt very good with his calm and concentrated driving skills - especially in the curvy roads of Amalfi.
Absolutely loved our recent tour with Gaetano. Totally professional from the second he picked up until the second he dropped us. Always honest and upfront. Easily the best driver of South Italy.😀👍

We had a fantastic experience with Gaetano and he exceeded our expectations. We went to 2 very different wineries, a more modern and contemporary, and the another, smaller, family run. The diversity was wonderful to fully understand the different types of wines and approaches in the region. There was no push to buy wine, but we did because it was great and Gaetano committed to assist to make sure the shipments would arrive when we returned. Wow - that’s beyond the call of duty!

Additionally Gaetano went to great lengths to ensure we had a stellar experience on our overall trip and offered recommendations for restaurants, tours, and must see areas of interest. He really cares about his clients and views them as friends for life. Wonderful day, excited to share our wine with friends.

Gaetano has an amazing ability to trace regional ancestral history. For years, my husband and I have been talking about going to the Campania area to visit the villages from where are great-grandparents immigrated around the turn of the 20th century. Prior to our trip to Italy, Gaetano was easy to reach by WhatsApp. He picked us up at our hotel in Naples and drove us to Campania. He provided us with family tree charts, including birth certificates. Also since, we do not speak Italian, he was so valuable in assisting my husband in finding a distant cousin. How incredible! In addition, he is continuing to research more family tree information for us. We can’t wait to learn what he finds. Our day with Gaetano made our family trip to Italy so special!

Gaetano and the wine bus are excellent. We used Gaetano in 2019 to find some genealogy for us. Not only did he find information for us but he also found some living relatives that we got to meet. When we planned a tour this past Aug/Sept I naturally got Gaetano to pick us up at the airport in Naples but we had him take us to the airport in Naples and Rome. On the way to the Naples airport Gaetano took us to a spot overlooking the port of Naples. While in Montemiletto we were taken to a small family owned winery where we had dinner and wine tasting. We were surprised by our driver playing an accordian and singing for us. I could go on and on about all the things Gaetano scheduled for us. He is a wonderful tour guigenealogist and will continue to use him every time I come to Italy. He has become like family to me!!

The wine and cheese tasting was one of the biggest highlights for our vacation! The tastings were outside the touristy places. Which allowed us to view the beautiful greens Italy has to offer!
Our guide, Guy was absolutely amazing and very knowledgeable!
The tastings were amazing! Adelina had the best salami and bruschetta I have ever had! Cannot forget the olive oil, had to bring a bottle home with me.
The private tour made it more special!
1 more thing to add, we were able to have wine shipped to the US!
Thank you, Guy. For an amazing experience!
