We hired Sorrento Silver Star Car Service throughout our week in Sorrento and our ride down from Rome to Sorrento. Our driver, Rosario, was SUPERB! He arrived early each day, was engaging, humorous, and very professional. Most importantly, he's an excellent driver!. Pointed out many interesting sites as we drove down the Amalfi Coast and drove us to an excellent ristorante for lunch in Amalfi (Trattoria da Ciccio). I would highly recommend this trip along with Rosario!

We had a group of 7 people who visited the Amalfi Coast area from 25 to 29 June. We stayed in Sorrento. We asked to be picked up from Napoli Centrale by SSS to be brought to Sorrento and vice versa on our departure on the 29th. We also hired SSS for a day-tour of the Amalfi Coast on the 27th and another day-tour of Pompeii and Mt Vesuvius on the 28th. We extended this tour to Naples and Luisa agreed without much fuss. We were very happy with all the arrangements. The MB van fitted all 7 of us with our luggages. We saw Rosario who drove the van, waiting for us as we disembarked from the train. Rosario was a good driver, made us feel safe and comfortable. He provided a lot of useful info as we went on to the tour. He was accommodating to our requests. We were all glad that we had Rosario to show us around. We also used a guide to see Pompeii. Lucia who was picked by Luisa, was a perfect guide - very knowlegeable and energetic. We want to thnak Luisa who made all the arrangements to make our visit to the Amalfi Coast hustle-free and memorable.

My husband and I have travelled quite a bit over the years, around the world. We have met wonderful people and had wonderful service experiences throughout those travels. I must admit I am not very good at finding time to sit and write reviews for every experience.
However, our experiences in the fall of 2014 in the South of Italy with Sorrento Silver Star Service were so easy, pleasant, and accommodating, that I would be remiss if I did not share it with other readers here.
First and foremost, the people we worked with – Luisa in the office, and Catello our driver – were fabulous! Flexible, helpful, knowledgeable, and friendly.
We arranged for a pick-up for 6 adults (and our ‘too much’ luggage) in Rome for transfer to Sorrento. It went off without a hitch – including an unexpected but perfect roadside stop for lunch to go. Catello was to drop us at our rental villa in Sorrento, but he first brought us to a grocery and waited while we stocked up on provisions. His creativity in fitting all that in along with all of us and our luggage was much appreciated Catello delivered us back to Rome at the end of the week as well.
During our week in Sorrento, we booked a day trip for 4 down the Amalfi Coast. Some bad weather was scheduled for our selected day, but we fully intended to do it anyway. But an ‘above and beyond’ call from Luisa offered to postpone the day to one with better weather – and we ended up changing the day twice – with no fees / no penalties for them.
Our day down the coast has been a significant, stand-out memory of our trip. Catello was perfection in his suggestions for stops (olive farm, ceramics making, lunch at an exquisite restaurant hanging over the sea, etc.
The only other thing I can say is that we have just booked air and the villa in Sorrento again for September 2016 --- and we WILL ABSOLUTELY be giving Sorrento Silver Star a call to make our transfer and day excursion arrangements. See you before too long, Luisa and Catello.

Our tour of Vesuvius and Pompeii was incredible, well organized and extremely informative, all due to our wonderful tour guide Pina. She was friendly, energetic and patient with our group of 21. She answered all our questions, and provided unique and interesting facts. We felt the spirit and history of Pompeii thru her descriptions. Highly recommend the tour and especially Pina, fantastico!!

I would like to add to my comments that on our way to our hotel, Paolo brought us to Pompeii where we met Lena for an *** tour of Pompeii. Lena provided us with all of the history about Pompeii and was so very knowledgeable. She was also extremely helpful. This is another tour that I would highly recommend. Lena was a wonderful guide who just made the tour complete...well worth it! She is also fluent in English, very pleasant and a lovely person. Luisa had arranged everything in advance for us and was so very accommodating. She responded so quickly to my emails and answered all questions and just stayed connected. This is a very reliable company with fabulous tours!
Friday, 12 June 2015 | Florida, United States
My fiance and I traveled to Sorrento on
May 23, 2015. I had been corresponding with Lusia via email. She was absolutely wonderful and so very helpful! What an *** company!
At the train station, we were greeted by our driver, Paolo. He was so professional, courteous and friendly. He also had a wonderful sense of humor! His knowledge of the area was fantastic and he explained the surrounding area on our way from Naples to our hotel in Sorrento. He was our driver for our tour of the Amalif Coast, which was a highlight of our trip to Italy! Paolo made this drive so exciting and spectuacular. The tour is well worth it! It was just splendid with many stops along the way to see the sights and take photos. On our return trip to the train, we were greeted by Gaetano at our hotel. He was also wonderful and we had a very pleasant ride. Both drivers were fluent in English. I would highly recommend Silver Star and would use them again in the future. Thank you so much Luisa, Paolo and Gaetano!

Myself and my mum did the Amalfi Coast tour with M***mo on 15th April and I had the best day ever! The trip was organised for my 30th Birthday and I was made to feel so special! M***mo had arranged surprises, being serenaded in the Emerald Grotto by Andreas and being taken by boat round the Amalfi coast. Luisa was brilliant at organising the trip and M***mo was such a great driver and a lovely guy!
Thank you so much for an AMAZING birthday!

The Service was so fabulous, we stayed extra days and made sure our excursions were booked with Luisa. Gaetano even took us through the Naples train station and helped us buy our tickets. Best service I have ever had throughout all the countries I have traveled.
Many thanks Gerardo, Kathy and Mackenzie

Words cannot express what a wonderful trip that you planned for us. We enjoyed all aspects of our stay and especially the professionalism and knowledge of Catello and Liberata. They could not have been better. We also loved our cooking experience with Luccia who was fabulous. The airport service was flawless as well. Overall, this was one of our best vacations ever. Thanks for making it possible.

The absolute best tour we have ever taken. Mille grazie a Louisa and Catello our driver.

Luisa, We wanted to thank you for a wonderful experience seeing the Amalfi coast and our Pompeii/Vesuvius tour. Our driver, M***mo was wonderful! Everyone I talk to about my trip I recommend Siver Star tours too. I'm already planning what else I want to see the next time I'm in Sorrento and your company and team are top of mind. I've also posted a review to Trip Advisor too!

Luisa, wanted to thank you for a wonderful experience seeing the Amalfi coast. Our driver, Catello was such a gem! I have told friends that it was like having a cousin show us as much as he could of the home country!!
Catello's professionalism, along with his friendly nature, made this visit even more enjoyable than I had had in the past.
I will be recommending Silver Star to anyone I know is coming to Italy!!!

:D thank you for our wonderful trip on 26 October. You helped us with planning including train times and contacts beforehand. We were collected from Naples by Alessandro, who told us lots about the area as he drove us to Vesuvius. We walked up and such lovely weather the views were amazing. Alessandro then took us to Pompei to meet our lovely guide Lucia and both suggested a restaurant where we had a delicious lunch. Then Lucia gave us a fascinating 2 hour guide around Pompeii. She covered so much in the time but the time flew and she made it so interesting that even our ten year old has been quoting facts and information ever since! Her knowledge and understanding of the site was phenomenal and it came alive for us all. She then told us where we might find it interesting to look for the hour and a half we had left. Then Alessandro drove us smoothly back to Naples. We could not have done so much in a day, particularly with children without Alessandro and Lucia. The children (15,13 &10) all enjoyed the visit as much as we did and we are very grateful to you all. I am sure we will be back.

ith apologies, Luisa, for the delay in this message: I have been dealing with a cracked elbow (from a fall during a lobbying trip to DC, but now healed) and with a series of trips and obligations.
My sister-in-law contacted you for assistance prior to our family's cruise. During our trip to Southern Italy, you provided us with very nice vehicle accommodations for six and with two very responsible, responsive drivers, Catello and Massimo. Catello took us from our hotel to Pompeii and then to the airport hotel in Rome. He assessed our capacity to deal with extreme heat in Pompeii and found us a delightful restaurant for a restorative meal. His timing was professional and his help appreciated.
We spent the day before with Massimo. I cannot pay enough compliments to him. Massimo was a perfect guide, giving interesting information about the area, ranging from contemporary to ancient life, driving with comforting confidence on the narrow, congested roads and setting up special events for us, from a "private" tour of the Blue Grotto to a ferry ride not anticipated but much enjoyed and refreshing, and a delightful restaurant for lunch. His timing was impeccable: we had enough time to explore on our own, which we enjoy, and all our goals were anticipated and exceeded. He was truly friendly, professional and most sensitive to our family dynamics.
We are very grateful for what your and your drivers' services meant to our vacation and would recommend your business without reservation, expecially since we had a severe disappointment from a similar business in Rome.
With best wishes to you, Massimo and Catello,

Luisa, your professional team of drivers really tied together all the activities of our wonderful Ciao Laura Sorrentine excursion. Massimo, Raffaello, Cattello, Gianluca and the others whisked us through the tricky traffic while engaging us in friendly & informative conversation.
Monday, 14 May 2012 | Raleigh, NC, USA
I highly recommend Sorrento Silver Star Tours. Their drivers, Raffalle and Catullo, were prompt, efficient, knowledgeable and courteous. This is a professional outfit and proved to be quite flexible as our plans changed.
Wednesday, 16 November 2011 | Utah, USA
Silver Star was great! our group of 8 used them for transfers from Tropea to Sorrento and Sorrento to Rome.
We also did a day trip of the Amalfi Coast and Paestum. Our driver Katello was easy to communicate with, knowledgeable about the area and accommodating.
I would definitely recommend.

Thank you Luisa. Our tour was fabulous. Rafalli was polite,prompt,knowedgeable and accomodating. We loved our day and will talk about it for years to come. Lunch was such a treat. Just as we dreamed Italy would be. Thanks for the hook up with Max in Rome.

If you want personal attention, promptness in returning correspondence, and professionalism then Silverstar is for you. I never met Luisa, but she made us feel like family. Modern cars, accommodating drivers and the freedom to "get out" into the culture are yours with this company. Thanks, Luisa!!!

Ciao Luisa and Massimo, I just wanted to thank you both again for making our trip to Sorrento so memorable. You made us all feel really special and Mum had a wonderful time and keeps telling everyone all about her trip. You did more than we could have expected which we will be forever grateful. Look forward to being in touch with you to arrange another trip next year. We will definitely tell everyone all about you. Thank for the lemons! Best wishes from Maria and the family x

We were impressed with “SorrentoSilverStar” drivers' personalities, professionalism, punctuality (picking us up and returning to our ship), flexibility with traffic problems, restaurant selections, and attention to our every interest. We enjoyed the Amalfi Coast, with Massimo and Catello, both were informative and entertaining. Would be happy to recommend this company to anyone!

I am writing following my return home after my visit to Naples.
Firstly, let me thank you for your assistance to my sister Jane, in organising our travel around Naples and Amalfi
I would like to complement you on Mauritzio, who is not only a lovely man, but engaging, funny and an excellent driver. He made our trip even more enjoyable.
Donato was a treasure. He has a wealth of information which he was keen and able to impart. This made our trip so much more enjoyable and informative, as well as time saving.
Both men made our trip very memorable. I would recommend both to anyone without any hesitation.
Should I return to Italy soon, I will definitely contact you to arrange further travel and guidance from both.
Saturday, 13 November 2010 | USA
Thank you so much for the email you sent to follow up on our tour! We had an absolutely wonderful time on our tour of Pompeii and the Amalfi Coast. Our tour guide/driver Antony was absolutely great! Very helpful, fun, gracious, and flexible! We would definitely recommend him and your tour business to anyone! Also, the private guide you scheduled for us in Pompeii was absolutely wonderful (her name was Lucia... not sure about the spelling). I would highly recommend her for any other groups looking for a private tour! Thanks again for setting up such a wonderful tour! Hopefully we'll be back to do another tour with you sometime in the future!
Saturday, 16 October 2010 | Dublin
Luisa I want to thank you for such a great service. Four of us were staying in Sorrento and you arranged transfers to/from airport and a great tour of the Amalfi coast. On the way from the airport we stopped for a guided tour of Pompeii and you arranged an excellent guide, Lucia. We had a great holiday and a lot of this is down to the service you provided. Thankyou, Lucia and Massimo.

Thank you so much for the transfers from Naples to Positano and back. What an excellent service, everything that the traveler needs. On time, great cars and excellent informative drivers.
This makes the transfer so easy.
Saturday, 09 October 2010 | California, USA
Dear Luisa, Where do I begin to thank you for outstanding service and consideration to our group? Everyone had high praise for the care and courtesy you and your drivers showed to us. Nothing was too much for Massimo. He obliged our requests happily, made changes en route and took exceptional care of us. Same with Joshua. We told some people on the boat to Capri about your service. They paid 50% more than we paid. Not only do you provide the best service, your prices are fair and affordable. You will always be our preferred car and tour service when we are in Campania. Grazie tanto. Jan

I cannot say enough good things about Silver Star and Luisa. Our group of 6 was met at Fiumicino on 18 Sep 2010 by Raffaele for transfer to Sorrento and return on 25 Sep. Raffaele also took us on day trips to the Amalfi Coast and to Pompei and Naples. In addition to being prompt, informative and a terrific driver, Raffaele also accommodated our occasional requests for stops at a grocery store or a travel agency (regarding a lost credit card). His suggestion to hire a guide for Pompei made all the difference in our experience at that historic site -- Lucia was a dynamo, very personable and knowledgeable. I corresponded with Luisa several times before we made our trip, and she was always extremely prompt in answering my questions. She also arranged for a driver on short notice from Rome to Fiumicino to transport 4 of us to a hotel for our last night's stay. I give the highest praise for everyone at SilverStar who made our trip so memorable!

We took a tour to Pompeii and Positano from a Cruise ship in Sept, 2010. It was my favorite day of a 12-day cruise. What a blast! Dominico was a lot of fun, and we had a great day together. The lunch he arranged for us was incredible. Thanks for a great tour!

The highlight of our trip was the drive to paestum using silver star. on the way back we toured the amalfi coast, stopping in rovello and positano, Our drivers name was Massimo. He was polite, professional and extremely knowledgable. It was like having our own personal tour guide. The drive was incredible and we learned so much from him.

I felt I had to take a minute to say that the Amalfi coast trip you organised for my family and I was just wonderful. We were picked up promptly and couteous by Rafaele from our hotel and spent a most enjoyable and informative day out. My wife was previously concerned about Italian drivers but, Rafaele is a most careful and knowledgable driver she felt very safe all through this tour. So many things to list that were great but, Rafaele took us to a personal favourite restaurant where we had a great meal and set the day for us. He even came back early to pick us up on request via communications with your good self. A very profesional outfit that I would recommend to my friends or anyone else. Thanks for a great time .

Luisa- We had such a fabulous day (Apr.23) in Sorrento, Pompeii, Positano and viewing the beautiful Amalfi coast. It was one of our most favorite days of our 20 days in the Mediterranean area. Massimo was such a pleasant, polite and courteous driver, accommodating whatever we wished. We so enjoyed La Tagliata restaurant in Positano. The fresh food was delicious! Lucia was a SUPERB Pompeii guide. We could not have asked for anyone better. We would highly recommend her and your tour services to anyone. Thank you for organizing such a wonderful day and thank you for your generous Limoncello gift. We will always have great memories of this day.

The service from Rome to Positano via Pompeii was outstanding! We are so glad we opted for your service rather than the confusion of taxis, trains, and buses. Our driver, Rafael, was superb! He pointed out places of interest along the way. The Mercedes sedan provided a perfect ride. (I fell asleep on the ride back to Rome it was so amooth!!)The driver was prompt and your email communication was timely. We shall return to Italia and use your service for sure!!

Naples we booked a private bus and private guide for the whole day which ended up costing 1400 euro divided by 20. Great price! The name of the company was Sorrento Silverstar and our guide was Lucia. We walked off the ship and to the line of buses and she was standing there with a sign with my name on it and a very welcoming smile! Ah, relief!! She was fantastic, friendly and very knowledgeable. We went to Pompeii, where she was able to get our tickets without standing in the very long line and we went straight in. From there we did a drive on the Amalfi coast to Sorrento where we stopped for shopping. She was able to reserve us a table ahead of time at a family run restaurant on the way to Positano. It was 25 euro per person but was worth it. They brought plate after plate of fantastic "local cuisine" and all the wine and lemoncello we wanted. It was on a cliff that over looked the bay and had amazing views.

Hello Luisa, I am very sorry to be so long in writing. I want to tell you that our tour with your company was excellent. the driver was courteous and professional. I wish to praise Catello. We could not have asked for better driver/guides. We would recommend your service to anyone. Best of luck in all of your future endeavours. Kindest regards.
Sunday, 17 January 2010 | USA
Many thanks to your company for excellent service. We were picked up promptly at the Naples airport and transferred to our Sorrento hotel. We had an all day tour of the Amalfi coast with Massimo (our driver). We was so full of information. It was amazing the knowledge he has. We enjoyed our day with him. Many thanks to all for making us feels so welcome.

We were more than pleased that we used your company for our shore excursions in Naples. The vehicle was clean, tidy and air-conditioned with more than enough room for the 8 of us, our driver was Catello and he was fantastic, negotiating the drive along the Amalfi coast with aplomb. He took us to a wonderful cliff top restaurant in Pontone with the most amazing view. I would not hesitate in recommending Sorrento Silver Star to anyone visiting Italy.
Thursday, 14 January 2010 | New York(usa)
Thanks Luisa for giving us the best day in Italy a person could have. We met Massimo in Naples port, he showed the absolute best of what the Amalfi coast has to offer. He gave us plenty of free time to explore all the little towns in the area, Positano, Sorrento and Pompeii and was extremely informative. Massimo is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!! Thanks again!!!
Thursday, 14 January 2010 | Florida USA
From the start, Luisa was so fabulous as responding to all of my emails. This was our first trip to Italy, thanks to Massimo in Naples, we had a wonderful trip to Pompeii, Sorrento and Positano! And also a special mention to Lucia in Pompeii, who was also fabulous. Thanks for everything!
Friday, 08 January 2010 | Canada
I can't say enough about the pre-travel arrangements with Luisa, excellent service. We were a group on a shore excursion from Naples. Our guide, Marc-Anthony, could not have been better. He was full of life, very knowledgeable of the area and Pompeii. Again 10+ rating. Hope to visit again...your on my bucket list!

I just wanted to tell you thank you on behalf of our whole group. There were 20 of us and we were very nervous to use a company that we had only ever heard of by online reviews.
We had fantastic trip and would use your company and recommend you to anyone who asks. Lucia was our guide and Raffaele was our driver. Lucia was very knowledgeable, friendly and went out of her way to customize the day to what we asked. She purchased our tickets for Pompeii and we skipped right by the line.
The restaurant that she reserved for us was wonderful and a highlight of the day. It was right on the cliffs over looking Positano and had breathtaking views.
Thank you again for making the day so stress free and a highlight of our cruise!

Hi Luisa -
I just wanted to tell you that all our arrangements worked out perfectly. From the vans with the car seat for my granddaughter to the very personable drivers to Lucia - everything was great. We especially were appreciateive of Catello, who gave us much insight into the area and suggested nice restaurnats, etc. He was always very prompt and caring and we were very comfortable with him. He is definitely an asset to your business. Lucia was so knowledgeable and personable and also a wonderful asset to your organization. If we have the chance to visit your beautiful conutry again, we will be sure to contact you. In the meantime, we will keep you in mind when our friends travel to Italy.

Luisa - We are back in the States now, and I wanted to write and thank you for our excellent tour last week. First, thank you so much for your kind and thoughtful gifts of limoncello and the ceramic napkin holder. Also, both Massimo (our driver) and Lucia (our Pompeii guide) were excellent, hospitable and very accommodating. It could have been a challenging day with our baby, but they were both very understanding and made our day wonderful. Lunch at Il Delfino was especially spectacular, and we are still talking about what an amazing memory that will always be. Again, thank you for all of your time, care and guidance - we had a fantastic time, and will definitely recommend your service to our friends.

The service and attention to details were terrific. Catello our driver was professional,courteous,informative and warm hearted and is a great asset to you and Sorrento Silver Star.

Hello Luisa, We just wanted to thank you, Massimo, and Lucia for providing us with such a wonderful day in Sorrento, Positano and Pompeii. We especially enjoyed our time in Pompeii. Thank you for setting up the special tour of the baths for us. Massimo was an excellent driver-- very knowledgable and so generous. We loved the fresh cherries and limoncello! Lucia was also so knowledgable and interesting. We only wished we had more time to spend with her. Next time we are in the Naples area, we will definitely use Sorrento Silverstar. You all made our visit so special and we greatly appreciate it. Thanks again. The Murphys

We are just back from our best holiday ever and the highlight, without doubt, was the wonderful day organised by Luisa.
We were met at our ship by the gorgeous Pasquale, our driver for the day. He escorted us to Pompeii where we had a great guide who shepherded us through all the main parts ensuring we wasted none of our precious time and yet missed nothing. Back with Pasquale, we were soon on our way along the Amalfi Coast, taking in Ravello, Amalfi, Positano and watching a very exciting diving competition from the cliffs at Furore. We had two hours in Sorrento for lunch and shopping and then Pasquale got our tickets and escorted us onto the Hydrofoil back to Naples to rejoin our ship.
This was a whistlestop tour and maybe not everyones choice but it was exactly what we asked for and only made possible with the help of Luisa and Pasquale. We had complete trust in Sorrento Silverstar from the first email contact which was always so friendly and prompt. The day itself was great fun, as you can imagine seven women with the gorgeous Pasquale, he was teased all day long and seemed to have fun too but was never anything other than professional throughout.
We can't wait to go back again for a longer stay, when we do, Sorrento Silverstar will be the first people we contact, we can't thank you enough for such a memorable day.

We want to tell you what a wonderful trip we had with your group to Ercolano and Napoli. Lucia was our guide. She is an excellent tour guide with such a wonderful personality and incredible
knowledge. In addition, to add to our trip, Max, our driver,
provided us with an excellent auto tour of Naples. It was all a great education and we appreciate the efforts of both Lucia and Max to make our trip such a success and they used every minute of our trip wisely and we feel we learned and saw so much of your lovely country.
Thank you for giving us such a professional crew and such an interesting itinerary.

Thank you so much for the wonderful that you provide on the Amalfi coast. We felt so lucky and secure to have Massimo as our driver twice during our vacation. He was very professional and an excellent driver. Thanks again to you and Massimo.

I wanted to let you know we had a great trip to Pompeii and the Amalfi Coast with Aldo and Lucia. Aldo was especially gracious and very fun to be with for the day. Lucia was very knowledge, we thought Pompeii was very interesting. Eldo was so nice to buy us a bottle of Limoncello, we haven't opened it yet but we will. He told us how he likes to drink it with tonic water.

My friend and I booked a day trip of the Amalfi Coast with Silverstar with Luisa back in late January 2009, and had a wonderful day! Massimo was our driver, and he gave us great shopping and dining tips, the car was immaculate and roomy, and we enjoyed his knowledge and personality very much. We also had booked him to drive us from the Naples airport to our hotel in Sorrento when we arrived, which we thought would be a good idea after a long overnight flight, and were extremely glad we did. We even wound up booking him to take us back to Naples at the end of our stay. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Silverstar and Massimo to anyone traveling in the area; we would definitely use them again on our next trip (you can't just visit there once!)

Hi Luisa, I just want to thank you for making our excursion possible for our group of 17. As I mentioned to you, Lucia was the BEST. Her recommendation to have lunch at La Torteleria in Positano was the highlight of our trip. Go figure. They all loved Rome, Florence and Naples, but the magic of a great restaurant overlooking the Mediterranean, great food, lots of wine and limoncello loosened up the group. Very special time. They couldn't stop talking about it the whole time in our cruise. Great choice Lucia. Luisa, I will be recommending your company to all I get in contact with. Will sing your praises on trip advisor and cruise critic. Until next time! Ciao and thank you again.

I just wanted to say that our group was VERY impressed by our driver and the great service he provided. The guide at Pompeii was excellent as well. We found everything to be very reliable and were glad that we took your tour! Thanks so much! Next time we stop by in the area, we'll use you again!

When I searched the internet to find a reliable company which would provide a car and driver to tour the Amalfi coast I found many recommendations praising your service. Then I contacted you and you replied promptly in excellent English, and gave us invaluable information to plan our trip, which, incidentally, included telling us how to use public transport for part of the trip and avoid paying for your car for an extra day - very honest of you! From the minute our ship's tender arrived in Sorrento port we saw Massimo waiting for us with a big grin on his face. When we explained we needed a change of itinerary (due to the ship unexpectedly changing ports the following day) Massimo contacted you and all was sorted immediately so that we were able to include Amalfi and Ravello (many others on the ship's tours lost out on the opportunity of seeing these fabulous places). Massimo was a delight and teased us into thinking a beaten up elderly small Fiat was the car provided. Next to it stood a gleaming new comfortable and large car which of course was ours. Massimo was courteous,informative and a terrific driver. We had a wonderful day. So, very many thanks Louisa and Massimo, ours was a very happy experience and we shall certainly recommend you to everyone. Your service is excellent. Thank you.

From the first email I appreciated your quick responses and desire to customize our visit to the Naples area based on our likes. Everything you did from the time we were picked up was perfect! I think we saw all the best of the best without being rushed. In fact, unlike other private tours we had during our Europe trip, we felt we were visiting the area with friends who just happened to be our tour guide and driver. More than anywhere else thanks to you we felt what it was like to live in your area. What a wonderful day we think of you often!! It's more than just the music box that is singing "Come Back To Sorrento"..our hearts want to also! Sharon and Jacque

Luisa - I wanted to thank you for the excellent service we received from your car service and especially for Catello. Catello did everything he could to help us realize our dream of visiting where our families started. Without his enthusiastic help our trip would not have been as successful as it was.
It turned out to be a very special day for us and the high light of our trip to Italy.
Thank you again for the excellent service.

I wanted to thank your tour company for a wonderfull day that we had at Pompaii,Herculaneum and the museo Archeologico Nazionale on Nov 13th. It was pouring rain at the start,- lighting, thunder, (very impressive weather!) Our guide and driver were prepared for the weather with alternatives to our original tour with included a hike up Mt Vesuvius. We went to the Museo instead and found it added insight to what we saw at the ruins. thank you again, Betty and Bill L. and Tarmo and Kay S.

I am writing to thank you for providing for me and my brother Michael Bindas a most amazing day in Naples on September 24. Your service and our driver Catello could not have been better. Catello was knowledgeable, courteous, patient and quite successful in finding our relatives and the home of our grandfather. He was so good with us and with our family and made the day one of the best of our lives. He readily interpreted and helped us communicate with such ease. We feel very lucky that he was with us that day. Thank you again for all you did to make such a day happen. You can be sure we will recommend your service with complete confidence.

Thanks for making our visit so special.

I'd like to take this opportunity to thank you for our wonderful trip to Castel di Sasso, the birthplace of my grandfather Dominic Apisa.
It was the highlight of our 17 day holiday. As you know, within an hour of arriving in Castel di Sasso, Catello found relatives who were my mother's first cousins and my second cousins. And to make the reunion even better, they still lived in the house where my grandfather was born.
As I had said, I would have been happy to just see the town, but to actually meet relatives was way beyond our expectations. It was an emotional reunion and we hope to maintain contact with our new cousins.
I appreciate all you did to make this happen. And I can't say enough about Catello. You could not have selected a better driver for us.
He was very professional and spoke perfect English. He pointed out sights on our way there and was very informative. And I give him complete credit for finding my relatives. Please extend our heartfelt thank you to Catello again.
We will be trying to talk my uncles into making the trip to Castel di Sasso to meet their cousins and will definitely recommend that they use your service and Catello as their driver. And if my sister and I ever return, we will use your service again.

Thank you Luisa and Massimo for a fantastic day! You always answered emails very quickly. When we got off the ship you were there waiting for us. You were both so pleasant and thoughtful. You gave us many options in order to make us as happy as possible. You even listened to us singing without complaining. There is no way we would have as much without you. Thanks again for a terrific experience.

Just wanted to say a big thank you for making us feel like celebrities for the day. The Amalfi Coast tour with Massimo and Lisa was the highlight of our holiday in Italy. Massimo and Lisa were fantastic company and we had the most thrilling day with. Everything was wonderfully organised and we will never forget the experience. We plan on returning to Sorrento in the future and will definitely be using your excellent services again. We have recommended you to everybody that we come across that are visiting your area.

I just wanted to tell you how much we enjoyed our day with Massimo. He was nice, knowledgeable, a great driver, and so helpful.
Your van was impeccably clean, and so comfortable! My only regret was that we were in Naples for only 1 day. I would highly recommend your service to anyone!
Thank you for the gift. Was a great memory to take home ,I really appreciate it.
