Day 1
Giuseppe Glielmo, was awesome! He picked us up form the Marriott in Napoli, and arranged for a private tour of Pompeii. We then made out way to Sorrento and ate at a trattoria that was more of a local place and Giuseppe had been eating at since he was a child.
Day 2
We were picked up from our hotel and made our way down the Amalfi coast stopping in; Positano, Ravello, and Amalfi. Giuseppe took us to many scenic outlooks, had a great sense of humor, and was tremendously valuable in explaining the area, the best way for us to plan our days, and places to eat. He was punctual, and a pleasure to spend 2 days of our vacation with.

When you're on holiday, time is valuable and making the most of what limited resources you have essential. This is where someone like Giuseppe is so valuable as he can tailor tours to suit your needs and ensure you don't miss anything.

Giuseppe showed us the Amalfi coast, sorted out a great lunch for us and was always available for advice and pointers. He is a calming driver in a sea of scooter and speed obsessed madness. When he was unable to personally take another tour we had arranged due to circumstances out with his control (thanks to an overdue liner arriving in Naples) he made sure another quality replacement was on hand and also called to make sure we were happy with any arrangements. The only disappointment was we could not spend more time on tour with Giuseppe but left the region having seen so many wonderful sights and places in a condensed period.

Having experienced several tours over the past decade worldwide, we can certainly recommend Giuseppe even though he doesn't enjoy whisky.

Giuseppe Glielmo is a perfect gentleman with a wonderful sense of humor. My family and I came to italy for my wedding. We spent the day touring with Giuseppe through the amalfi coast and pompei.

Prior to our recent stay in Sorrento, my wife and I decided that one of the things we wanted to do was drive along the famed Amalfi coast. As this was something that we would probably only ever do once, we decided to do it in style by hiring a private driver to transport us. And after researching possibilities on TripAdvisor, we decided to book the services of Giuseppe of SorrentoCoastDrivers. It was an inspired choice!

Prior to our departure, our e-mails to Giuseppe arranging the tour were answered quickly and helpfully and on the day, Giuseppe arrived at our hotel to pick us up exactly as planned. As soon as we met him, we both felt extremely comfortable in his company – something that is important when you are to spend the day with a stranger. Quietly spoken and friendly, he was knowledgeable about the area and pointed out a number of interesting things as we drove along the coast.

In addition, he was a very safe and assured driver. We felt completely safe with him at all times on roads that often had a steep drop on one side! His Mercedes van, sitting high on the road, gave excellent views out of the windows – something that might not be achieved in an ordinary car because of the height of the walls at the side of the road.

We made 3 stops – at Positano, Amalfi and Ravello. Each time Giuseppe dropped us off in the centre of the town and suggested what we might do in the time available to explore the town. He then drove back to pick us up at an agreed time, which all helped to make it easy for us to get around. In addition, he suggested a lunch stop in a restaurant high in the hills outside Amalfi – one that tourists would never normally find. Sitting in the sunshine, eating a nice meal, with the sea in the distance was a very pleasurable experience!

There are undoubtedly cheaper ways to explore the Amalfi coastline. But if you want to do it in a special way, one that is both luxurious and safe, then I would unhesitatingly recommend hiring the services of Giuseppe. I can assure you it is not a decision you will regret.
