On our recent cruise we had the pleasure of touring the Amalfi coast with Marcello Maresca (seesorento.com). He picked us up at the cruise port in Naples and gave us a truely personal, enjoyable drive through the beautiful coastline. He arranged his tour so that we avoided the tourist traps and conjestion and expereinced small shops, road side stands and a fantastic litle resturant in Positano where they served up a traditional Italian meal using local grown herbs and vegitables. It was a pleasure to listen to his stories while he drove us through this most beautiful region. We also tied a separate walking tour of Pompeii with this drive and Marcello coordinated the meeting points for the tour of the most wonderous ruins and picked us bak up and returned us to the ship. It was an amazing day and it was made possible by this wonderous driver. I would recommed using him again bt be warned he is in demand so book him early. We were very glad we did.

Dommenico to begin with is a like a apple product. A little expensive but worth every penny. I had taken the tour of Naples Pompeii and positano and sorrento with dommenico. And it was the best among the 12 days I spent with any other tour guide or company. Dommenico is a very lively person with a brilliant sense of humour who never made my tour boring even for a single second. He has immense knowledge about the area and took us to such spots no group tour ever will .. He is a good driver and the Mercedes van was also very clean and comfortable and spacious. Dommenico's english is also good which is very crucial in case of a pvt tour!! He was very flexible and made us tour the entire area like we were locals giving us enough free time to wander by ourselves. Also, he recommended the best local restaurants which weren't expensive but the food was outstanding..... Also worth mentioning is the attention he pays to the finer details so that you can get the most and best out of your tour!! I would sure tour with dommenico again if I come back to Italy !! HIGHKY RECOMMENDED. Grazie  dommenico for everything. !!!! Ciao

My first time using Private Tour in Italy -- booked on the basis of a recommendation from a friend. Friendly, knowledgeable, fluent in English, timely pickup, and modern and spacious vehicles. We did two trips, one with Domenico and another with Raffaele and found both to be delightful.

I would strongly recommend to anyone wanting to do a tour to consider Private Tour in Italy.

This was our fourth time using Domenico from www.privatetourinitaly.com. Domenico met us in the port of Salerno and Danny met us at the port in Livorno - both gentleman are class acts. After meeting us at the port, Domenico droves along the Amalfi coast with our first stop at the most incredible family owned bakery/pastry shop. We enjoyed a complimentary tasting of two unbelievable pastries with cappuccino while sitting outside the cafe overlooking the harbor. By chance, we met the owner whose confectionery is known both locally and nationwide. We then drove to my favorite place in the world - beautiful Ravello - where we walked through the gardens of Villa Cimbrone with its beautiful views of the Amalfi coastline. As we had previously been to the Amalfi coast, we asked Domenico if he could arrange a wine tasting from the Amalfi region. He quickly pulled out his cell phone and within minutes arranged a wine tasting with a family owned winery with vines over 500 years old. There we tasted three different wines along with homemade brushetta. An incredible experience - so much fun. Domenico once again arranged for us to have lunch at my favorite restaurant - Trattoria La Tagliata - at the top of the world! Thanks Domenico for going the extra mile. You are the best - the Captain! Also special thanks go to Lella (on the homefront) who will quickly respond to your emails and design a day of touring to meet your every need.

Our day tour of the Amalfi Coast, which began and ended with door-to-door service from our Naples hotel, was hosted by Francesco of Limousine Sorrento Renato Cuomo. With an excellent command of English, a delicious sense of humor, and driving skills par excellence, he described each stop and panorama with historical, cultural, and geological details. He was a complete gentleman and an obviously cultured man. We recommend him highly.
