“Wonderful private transfer!”
Reviewed December 6, 2013

We are a group of 6 couples, having this private transfer by one of the well mannered driver we have had!Mr Stefano! He transferred us from Rome to Florence, while we had a short 2 hrs stay at Sienna. After staying two nights in Florence, he again transfer us from Florence to The Mall for shopping, before heading to Venice. We were grateful that during our shopping trip to The Mall, we were delayed, yet Mr Stefano is being patient to us! During our long hour journey, Mr Stefano took the initiative to entertain us, he is knowledgeable in many ways! Humor and fun going! Typical Italian!we love you!

“Excellent and professional service - best private tour company!”
Reviewed November 8, 2013

My family of four (3 adults, 1 child) took a Mediterranean cruise with a day stop in Livorno/Florence. We didn't want to use the cruise ship's excursions in Florence because those tours can have large groups and limited time to see things. Instead, we wanted a private, customized tour for only our family in Florence, with stops at the major attractions of our choosing. Picking this tour company was the best decision we made the entire trip!

After arriving in Florence, we met our tour guide at the Uffizi Gallery as our first stop. She was promptly waiting for us. She took us through the Uffizi Gallery, Accademia Gallery, Santa Croce Basilica and Ponte Vecchio bridge - our chosen destinations. The entire time, she educated us on the sculptures and masterpieces, the artists' themselves and even explained historically the environment and culture in which these artists lived so that we could truly understand the lifestyles back then. Our guide was truly an art history expert and was so knowledgeable. She has a teaching nature, so as she brought us around, she had us view these masterpieces from a different perspective and notice the fine details. As someone who doesn't usually care as much for art, despite what this post may imply, within the one day we spent with our Prestige Rent guide, I learned to appreciate the artists, the importance of art history and preserving the artists' achievements.

Also, as we were on a strict schedule to make it back to the ship, our guide did keep this in the forefront of her mind. We got to see so many important things all in a day, and still made it back to the ship on time. We were stressed about missing the ship but our guide planned how long to stay at each attraction and knew how long it'd take to get back to port. If I get lucky enough to visit Europe or Italy again, Prestige Rent would be my #1 private tour company!

“Naples”
Reviewed November 2, 2013

Our driver, Gregory, was waiting for us as we disembarked from the ship. Professional, knowledgeable, well spoken, we were fortunate to have had him for same tour last year. He was helpful and took us to Herculaneum, Amalfi Coast, Ravello, and other beautiful places in this area. He even took us to a special restaurant (Hole in the Mountain). What a wonderful tour made special by this very pleasant driver. Hope we get him the next time we are in this area. A real gentleman and the car was comfortable and air conditioned. Prestige was an excellent choice.

“Tours to Siena/San Gimignano and Pisa/Lucca”
Reviewed October 10, 2013

My husband and I took his 80 year old mother to Tuscany for a birthday treat. We stayed in Florence and booked two tours with Prestige Rent. Both tours were hugely successful and enjoyed very much by all of us. My mother-in-law particularly appreciated the fact that we were dropped off and picked up as close as possible to the various attractions, as she sometimes has difficulty in walking far. Both our drivers turned up promptly, were very smartly dressed and spoke excellent English. The cars were comfortable and thoughtfully provided with bottled water.

Our drivers were very pleasant and helpful, chatting easily about anything and everything or staying quiet as the mood took us. They also helpfully recommended places to lunch and booked for us while we were en route. We spent a lot of time having lunch on both occasions which meant that we didn't have much time for sightseeing in the afternoons but this was no problem for us, nor for our drivers, who adapted themselves to our wishes very readily. One of our drivers also recommended a restaurant in Florence for an evening meal, we took his advice and very much enjoyed our meal at Il Santo Bevitore.

Altogether, we had a wonderful time on both days and would thoroughly recommend Prestige Rent to anyone looking for a private tour.

“Great tour of Sienna and San Gimignano.”
Reviewed October 7, 2013

I have used this prestige services since 2008 when we had a shore excursion for our cruise. Because of that great experience I booked prestige rent and your services again to be our guide and transport service to the Tuscan region.
Our service arrived on time and our driver/guide Savierro was very attentive to details and was very knowledgable about the history and the sites of our tour. We had an excellent time in Sienna as we marveled at the sites and wonderful surroundings of the Tuscan region. We also had a great time walking in the streets of San Gimignano. Savierro also gave very suggestions on where to eat in both places. Prestige really knows how to take care of their clients.
