“Lots of Fun”
Reviewed August 15, 2013

My wife, son and I hired DGS Tours to take us to Pompeii/Positano in April. Our driver, Pietro, met us promptly at 7:30 in the hotel lobby. From the start it was obvious Pietro was very engaging and personable. We hopped into his Mercedes minivan and as we headed southeast out of Rome he provided us lots of interesting information about Italy, including current events. First stop was Pompeii. There a seasoned archeologist, Antonio, led us on a private tour of the ancient city. Antonio knew his history and we learned quite a bit about Pompeii we would otherwise have missed. After Pompeii, Pietro took us up the Amalfi Coast to a restaurant overlooking Positano and the Mediterranean. There, Pietro introduced us to his friend Pepe, one of the family members who owned the restaurant. Pepe gave us no menus. He sat us at a window table with a fantastic view and promptly brought out wine, water, and an array of fantastic foods from the kitchen. It was all excellent. Desserts and limoncello capped the feast. The price was very reasonable and needless to say we left there very content. We stopped briefly in Positano and visited some of the shops. It is a very quaint, beautiful town and not to be missed. From Positano, Pietro drove us back to our hotel in Rome. It was a very enjoyable and educational journey and one of the highlights of our trip to Italy. I highly recommend DGS Tours.

“Great tour with Claudio and DGS!”
Reviewed August 15, 2013

We did a full tour of Rome with Claudio and had a blast. Claudio is extremely knowledgeable about the history of Rome and is very easy to talk with. He gave us a brief history of the site before we toured it on our own and then when we were done asked us about what we saw and if we had questions. He also recommended a great little pizza place to have lunch at in the area and called and had it all set up by the time we got there so we didn't lose any time. Enjoyable experience and would recommend to anyone looking to see as much of Rome as you can in a short amount of time.

Our tour guide was wonderfully nice and helpful. Beside our tour guide's entertaining and colorful stories of Rome, he was also very accommodative of our families request. I highly recommend this tour company for your sightseeing and touring needs in Rome!

“Thanks to DGS I know LOVE Rome!”
Reviewed August 10, 2013

Prior to our departure, we booked a DGS private tour of Rome for our family of 6 (parents, grandmother & 3 young adult children) with Roberta, for our 1 day in port from our Celebrity cruise. Lucca, our driver guide, was nothing short of spectacular! Not only was he super knowledgeable about the sights/attractions, he shared his personal insights & managed the day based on our interests and energy -- even insuring that he built in time for eating at a great Italian café and souvenir shopping off the beaten path. I've been to Roma several times before and have repeatedly said to friends that it wasn't my favorite. Thanks to Lucca, that script has changed! It's hard to believe that a 9hr tour could change my perception, but it has! Heartfelt thanks to Roberta, Lucca and the DGS team! We will see you again, soon!
