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!
Mario surpassed our expectations. The stop at the lemon stand was outstanding and a perfect treat!

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 super enthusiastic and very knowledgeable. He knew how to beat the traffic and the best place to stop for lunch. We really enjoyed the tour and his company.
Linda PolcynUnited States
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!

Mario gave us an unforgettable ride (in a good sense). Very friendly and knowledgeable of the area geography, origins, arts, gastronomy and ways to avoid traffic. We had time to sidetrack and breath in the local scenery. Highly recommended.
Mario was Very spontaneous ,knew all the niches and crannies and was very informative.Additionally, he knew which sites portrayed an authentic side of the town and, was very knowledgable in terms of which roads had the least traffic. This saved us considerable time avoiding traffic. I would recommend Mario for any future tours.
Larry S.United States
Mario was on time and very personable. He was quite knowledgeable of the areas we visited and provided a very enjoyable experience including a stop for lunch at a wonderful mountainside fratoria, several picture stops, a roadside sweets stand, and tips regarding the town's we passed thru or stopped at. The tour itself was great. Mario was fantastic. Both get a 5 star rating! Enjoyed the experience and recommend it to anyone who may be interested.
Troy TeeplesUnited States
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.
We really enjoyed our tour with Mario. He is very engaging and enthusiastic. He Is more than willing to customize his itinerary to fit your needs. He was helpful and seemed genuinely interested in making sure that we had a good time. He is knowledgable and we had a delightful day. We can highly recommend him as a guide. We can highly recommend him as a guide.
Mario was extremely convivial and his knowledge was very helpful to plan a day trip that made the best use of the time. He not only expertly toured us along the Amalfi Coast but had lots of helpful suggestions about our stay in Naples.

Excellent guide. Worth every penny (or Euro, in this case).
Randall OvertonUnited States
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)
Harland GreeneUnited States
Mario came to us as a rescue for another guide. His trip for us to the Amalfi coast and Pompeii was outstanding. His restaurant recommendation still has all of us in awe. He is an excellent driver, a warm human being, an outstanding young man. We are better people for having met him. Unless you drive the coast, you can never imagine the vistas. Photo ops were generous.
The tour was amazing managed perfectly and our guide Mario was the best he provided us with information of every city and stop he recommended the beautiful places for photos and food I rate this as 5 out of 5. Thanks Reem
