Mario was a fantastic knowledgeable guide of the Amalfi Coast. We experienced the most magical day despite rain, wind and fog. We learned so much about Napoli, Positano and Amalfi as well as the history of Italy in general. He is most personable and relates well to his clients. He took us off the tourist route to a favorite restaurant which we enjoyed so much. Mario was a very careful driver on slippery and very foggy roads. We recommend him most highly. Thank you Mario for the most amazing day.

We were warmly welcomed by Mario, and with such a friendly atmosphere we had a fantastic start! The guide and tour was extremely good, very flexible (appreciate this!) and for that he deserves a special thanks. We had a great day there, which obviously also added up to the experience. Mario is such a warm personality and highly motivated guide (recommendable!). All respect for Mario who does a great job there; a true sample of excellent tour guide. Many thanks again and we recommend Mario to everyone.

Mario is a real local, meaning he knows every spot in and around Napoli. Mario showed me the beautiful Amalfi coast and I spent a wonderful day. Mario is a punctual, respectful and widely travelled person, who makes you feel welcome. He has a big knowledge of the history and of the facts and figures of the region so I learnt a lot of interesting things. He also is an excellent driver, what is important in Italy :) Mario is a passionate local tour guide, who I can highly recommend. Thank you Mario!

Mario was our guide and he provided a full day of great sites and information. The day was never rushed as we toured the various cities, including a stop in Pompeii…what a place! We had a great lunch at the Meddici Winery and time for strolling town centers, etc. Mario is a very friendly and gracious host and provides unlimited information about the areas current and historical situation. His vehicle was spotless and dependable!

We spent 3 days with Mario on the Amalfi Coast and in the Naples area. He, along with a wonderful guide, Marcelo, made our visit quite memorable. He organized our days with not only great adventures but he also picked us up from the airport and drove us to Rome at the end of our visit. He was knowledgeable about the area, very personable, an excellent driver on those narrow winding roads, and always wanting to make sure we were having fun! I would definitely give him 5 stars!!

Another great tour/transfer with Mario. He picked us up at our hotel in Florence, final destination was praiano in the Amalfi Coast. We stopped in Pompei for a tour of the Archeological sites and Mario arranged a guide that did an excellent job for our group of 5, including a 4 and 7 year old. It was great to see that Mario totally gets the needs of families with small children. I already have another transfer scheduled with Mario. He is responsible for the highlights of our trip! Thanks Mario and Diego.

Mario and Diego did an amazing job during our transfer from Venice to Florence. They planned a stop in Siena, and after that a unique wine tour in San Gimigiano, where our children could learn about the process while we tasted great wine. After that, they drove to the medieval city of San Gimigiano and gave us directions to the best Gelato in town. What a great day in Tuscany! Thank you Mario for all the planning and effort you put in our trip.

Yesterday, I went on a tour of Sorrento, Positano and Pompeii with Mario F. It was just me on the tour. Mario was friendly and very well informed about the local area. The pace of the tour was perfect, with time to explore each place. Mario recommended the best place ever for lunch and arranged a very knowledgeable guide for the Pompeii ruins. I really enjoyed the day. I give the tour 5 stars. Thanks. Celia Tagari

Our day trip w/ Mario to Sorento and Positano was A M A Z I N G !!! The views are breathtaking! Positano is now on my Top 4 most amazing places, right beside, maybe even above Venice, Machu Pichu, and The Great Wall. Mario is a wonderful guide and host. Sincere, considerate, very knowledgeable, good driver, fluent in Eng, Spn, Fr, It. He arranged a wonderful anniversary lunch for my wife and I high above Positano. Best food I've had in all of Italy! Mario, thank you for a wonderful day!!

Hard to describe how amazing was this tour,we had such a blast with 3 generations in the van you would think it would be a challenge? Not with Mario!!! He as the experience to please everybody with his humor and singing! I'm still laughing just thinking about it! The knowledge? Oh yes! Mario will answer all your questions even before you ask! Everything you see in front of you will be explained and in between you will have the full history of what was Napoli and others past and present! Mario's a Pro!

Mario is the best! He took time at the beginning of our tour to decide on the order of things so we could avoid traffic and make the most of our visit. We asked him to be the coach and decide for us and he did an amazing job. 9 hours went by so quickly! Wonderful visit to Positano and Sorrento then on to Pompeii where Mario arranged a Pompeii guide to walk us through the ruins...which was unforgettable. Best of all is Mario's upbeat, fun and positive attitude which is just infectious!

My husband and I had an amazing tour with Mario! From the start, Mario responded promptly and thoroughly to my inquires. He picked us up at the pier in Naples and we were on our way to the magnificent Amalfi Coast, very engaging and knowledgeable. He is an exceptional driver and navigated those winding, hilly roads perfectly. During the drive he shared historical facts and personal impressions. We had ample time to discover and enjoy each area. I recommend him without hesitation as an exceptional guide.

We loved all of the little special places he told us to checkout. The highlight of the day was visiting Tenuto San Francesco for a tour and a delicious lunch with the owner and his family. Mario also arranged for a very special dinner at Donna Sophia which is in a secret garden. We would have NEVER found it on our own. While traveling we love to learn about the people, their lives, see where they live and eat. Mario touched on all of those aspects.

Booked a half-day with Mario and couldn't have been more pleased. I submitted a list of stops (food, sights, and shopping) and Mario accommodated all of them. He was very easy to work with before the trip started, met me on time at the train station, and overall would HIGHLY recommend him if you are going to Naples. Thanks Mario for a great day!

We toured with Mario on 7/3/18 after coming into port on the Norwegian Epic. Mario met us right at the dock and took us to Sorrento, Positano & Pompeii for a full day tour. Mario was a wealth of information during the ride to these places, giving us info regarding the entire Amalfi Coast area. He gave us some free time to explore both Positano and Sorrento. He introduced us to La Tagliata, which was the most amazing meal we have had in our lives. It was a wonderful day with Mario. Highly recommend!!

We were on bus tour of Italy that did not include the Amalfi coast. We were staying two nights on Capri with one free day. We booked a tour with Mario. He met us on the dock in Sorrento and took the 8 of us down the coast to Ravello. It was the highlight of our trip. He went out of his way to show us local highlights in a genuine friendly way. We saw Ravello, Amalfi, topped off with a fantastic lunch in Positano. Because of Mario we would recommend Tours by Locals to anyone who asks.

Mario was great! He was very informative and took us to all of the beautiful spots along the Amalfi Coast. Ask him to take you to Le Bonta Del Capo for lunch, it was his suggested spot and was definitely one of our favorite meals of our whole trip. He even made an unscheduled stop on our return to help us plan dinner. Highly recommended!

Our tour was excellent with Mario. He provided explanations and history of the area as we drove. He accommodated our every need even by providing water for each of us. He found a great restaurant and made sure we were satisfied. We had told him that we did not want to eat in one of the tourist restaurants, so he took us to a beautiful place on a cliff over-looking the amalfi coast. At one point, it began to rain. Mario had thought of that too. He pulled out umbrellas for each of us.

Mario was an excellent tour guide, he was prompt, courteous, and very knowledgeable of the area and history. Mario picked us up from our hotel right on time in a very comfortable and roomy Mercedes Van. An excellent, safe driver who maneuvered the twisty cliffside roads of the Amalfi Coast with flawless ease. The sites were spectacular and the restaurant that Mario took us to was outstanding from the delicious food to the stunning panoramic views. Thank you Mario!! (Randy, Beth, Steve, Aleeza)
