“Fantastic, reliable, friendly and personal service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2012

We contacted Astarita via the website and were surprised by the immediate response via email. Barbara was extremely helpful in getting all the details sorted out and gave very clear and precise instructions on where the pickup would be. Antonio was there waiting for us, helped with the luggage and drove us from Sorrento to Positano. He is a great and careful driver, gives some very nice advise and information in a relaxed way and shows genuine care to see if there is anything that he can help with. We booked Astarita car service again from Positano to Napoli with a stop over in Pompei. The car was perfectly on time and we were dropped off at the main interesting area of Pompei. He told us to relax and take our time so we didnt feel rushed. After that he drove us to the train station in Napoli and helped us all the way into the train station.
I travel for business about 45-48 weeks of the year and do meet quite a bit of drivers and car services but Barbara and Antonio have exceeded my exceeded my expectations and have surpassed any of the services i have met in my life. They make you feel relaxed, give you great options and info and the execution of the service is flawless. An ABSOLUTE TOPPER!!! Book It and enjoy, you will never regret this.

“Amalfi Coast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 20, 2012

Antonio made our day very enjoyable. He picked us up at our hotel in Sorrento and was very professional. Although the weather was cloudy and we had a little rain, we saw some beautiful towns and lunch was outstanding.

“Fabulous Tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 29, 2012

After reading the glowing reviews we contacted Barbara for the car services for our son's honeymoon trip to Sorrento & Rome. Barbara was outstanding with her very prompt responses ,wonderful suggestions and reasonable quotes. Our son & daughter-in-law were thrilled with Antonio's fantastic service. He met them at Naples airport and drove them to their hotel in Sorrento. They did a private tour of the Amalfi coast and a trip to Pompeii along with a transfer to Rome. Antonio is such a knowledgeable,enthusiastic, friendly guide full of fun facts. We would highly recommend Barbara & Antonio's very efficient and reliable car services.

“Excellent service had a great day!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 19, 2012

We joined a full day 8 hour excursion for Sorrento/Positano/Pompeii including a guide at Pompeii, Astarita Car Service was not just less expensive than other companies but they also very professional. The guide Anzo was very knowledgeable and funny, did not rush us and we took alot of pictures. Overall very good experience and recommended except if driver could talk more about the scenery during the drive would be better.

“Perfect way to travel in Italy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 18, 2012

Antonio met my Wife and I at the Naples train station and drove us to Positano with a stop in Pompeii. He was waiting with our names on a sign and a big smile. Antonio is incredibly friendly, professional, knowledgeable, and an excellent guide. He made our trip very enjoyable with fun facts on the surrounding areas, a map of Pompeii and even a stop at a local, off the beaten path, restaurant for "saltambocas" (spelling?). Definitely one of the best meals we had in our 2 week trip! His van was spacious, comfortable, and clean. Barbara was also very easy to work with in arranging our travel. I would recommend Astarita to anyone needing transportation in an area they cover.
