If I could give more stars I would! Carlo is one of the BEST guides I have EVER had in over 25 years of travel! His knowledge and professionalism puts him over the top! He was prompt, courteous and well prepared. He gave an exceptional tour far beyond what we anticipated! We saw him the next day picking up a tour and he was also offering assistance to us then! He is a great guy and an outstanding tour guide! I HIGHLY recommend Carlo and will book him again! You get your money's worth and more!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks you so much Christina for your too good review! It was a pleasure for me to drive you and the Kids to Rome, during your Civitavecchia Shore Excursion! I am really upset to know that your sunglasses were not delivered to you! I trusted on them! I will write them to complain but they will tell me for sure they delivered them to the ship's security.... I Hope to see you soon back to Italy again! All the best to you and your family! Carlo

Frank CannonUnited States
While it is a long way from Rome to Pompeii and the Amalfi coast, Carlo made the time and trip worth it. A guided tour of Pompeii arranged by Carlo was a must not only to understand what we were seeing but to avoid the crowds. When we were ready for a late lunch Carlo found us a wonderful family restaurant up the hill along the Amalfi coastline. And in the 13 hours, there was time for some great shopping.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: You're welcome Frank and thanks for your nice feedback! I am Happy to hear you had a great time during your trip to Pompeii and the Amalfi Coast! It was a pleasure for me spending that day with you and your family! Hope to see you soon again! Carlo
Again Carlo was excellent and adapted his timetable to help us see and experience as much as possible in the timeframe allocated. Again thank you Carlo and we will be recommending Tours by Locals to fellow travellers back home.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: You're welcome Gail and again It was a pleasure for me spending the time with you! All the best to you! Carlo
Carlo was an excellent driver and had extensive knowledge. He was very personable and nothing was too much trouble. He made our long drive pleasant. We would like to thank him again and if we are ever in Italy again would definitely use Tours by Locals
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much Gail! Yes, the drive was pretty long but nice thanks to you! I Hope to see you soon here again to visit other beautiful parts of Italy! Carlo
Rose LeverettUnited States
Carlo showed us an amazing day! We toured Pompeii and got to climb to the top of Vesuvius. He arranged a perfect stop for lunch at a restaurant overlooking Naples. The views were amazing! Then we got to go see Naples too. Beautiful sights! Carlo was so accommodating in picking us up at the cruise port and dropping us back off at the hotel. We have memories for a lifetime from the day. I highly recommend this tour. You will not be disappointed!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much Rose for your nice feedback! I am happy to hear you had an amazing day! It was a pleasure for me to have driven you to that beautiful part of Italy. I am looking forward to meeting you soon again! Carlo

Nadav SharirRaleigh, NORTH CAROLINA, United States
Carlo was our guide visiting Rome and on the way to the cruise ship on the coast. He was one of the best tour guides we've had. In fact, we are already planning to hire him again next year during our visit to Italy. We strongly recommend Carlo as your guide on your next visit to Italy.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mr. Nadav, Thanks for the nice words expressed to me! It was a pleasure to drive you and your wife during your Rome Tour and transfer to Civitavecchia Port! Thanks for the great lunch offered at Ceri! I am looking forward to meeting you soon again! Carlo
Stephanie MillerUnited States
We had a fantastic experience with Tours by Locals with Carlo C. on our day trip from Rome to Amalfi Coast and Pompeii. Carlo was friendly and shared amazing detail with us during our day. From the punctuality, cleanliness and quality of the vehicle, to Carlo and his detailed and spot on knowledge of the area, recommendations for shopping and lunch and just an amazing day, it was a fantastic experience for this group of first timers to Italy!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Stephanie, Thanks a lot for your nice and detailed feedback! It was a great pleasure for me to drive your nice party and I am happy to hear you had an amazing day with me! I am looking forward to meeting you soon again! Carlo
Brad LippertUnited States
My family of 6 booked Carlo to pick us up at the Civitavecchia cruise port and give us a comprehensive tour of Rome. We could not have been more pleased! Carlo was prompt, friendly, informative and speaks English well. A resident of Rome with years of experience giving tours, Carlo brought Rome to life. He even saved us when it turned out our purchase of Coliseum tickets had been refused (which I would have known in advance had I spoken Italian). It was a pleasure touring Rome with Carlo!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Brad thanks for your very nice review and message! It was a great pleasure for me as well to tour your nice family and I am glad you had a good time here! I hope to see you soon again! Thanks! Carlo
Joseph RosadoUnited States
Carlo was outstanding in preparing us for the tour of Napoli, Vesuvius and Pompeii on our drive down from Rome; he gave us cool insights that when we arrived at the aforementioned places it was as if we had been there before and it made it far more enjoyable. Strongly recommend Carlo as an awesome tour guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Joseph for your nice and detailed review! It was a great pleasure to have driven such pleasant persons like the 2 of you! I am looking forward to meeting you soon again! Carlo

Carlo was a pleasure to have for a driver.On the trip down he kept us informed about the places we passed&history of the area.He provided time for ample stops, and never hesitated to slow down for pictures or bathroom breaks.He provided great tips&tricks on Positano & Sorrento-where to shop, eat, get espresso,go to the restroom-these were invaluable. Carlo is polite,kind & always a gentleman. I would not hesitate to recommend Carlo for any future adventures!

Maria RamosUnited States
Our tour guides were a father and son team that was absolutely amazing!! We were a family of 10 needing both English and Spanish. They were both very knowledgeable, professional, friendly and patient. Our family included elderly people and our guides treated them warmly and did not rush at all. They made a lunch reservation at a well chosen restaurant for us. The vans were clean and very comfortable which is important on a long drive. We even got free water! Thank you Carlo & son! :)
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Maria, Thanks for your nice feedback! I am Happy you had a good time with us during your Pisa and Florence trip from Rome! It has been a long day for you but we saw everything important! It was a pleasure for my son Riccardo and I, to meet such nice persons like you and I hope to see you soon again! All the best! Carlo

Thank you Carlo!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Robyn, You're welcome and thanks for your nice feedback! It was a pleasure for me to have you and your family as Customers of mine during the trip from Rome to Florence! I am looking forward to meeting you soon again! Carlo
