Giuseppe was a wonderful guide and provided us with a great day going to Pompeii. He was knowledgeable about the history of the area and thoroughly entertaining.

Tour: #62862, Early Morning Ancient Pompeii with a Private Guide, Pompei, Italy    view tour
Date: Nov 6/19

Hello, My girlfriend and I recently took a trip to Rome for her 50th birthday and the one thing she wanted to do is tour the ruins of Pompeii. My girlfriend chose your company to take us and we couldn't have been more happy. Giuseppe was our guide on the adventure of a lifetime, he made Pompeii really come to life. His knowledge of the site and overall enthusiasm for showing this wonderful landmark was refreshing. Highly recommended, 5 star guide for sure , thanks Giuseppe!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Robert, Great tour in Pompeii! We crossed the ancient city from a gate to the other stopping in all the critical points in order to tell you how was the life of the Pompeians (citizens of Pompeii) 2000 years ago: the Forum with all the public buildings, private residences, thermal baths, shops, bakeries, wine bars, the brothel and the Amphitheater; we saw gardens, frescoes, mosaics, decorations, fountains, furniture of the ancient times!! Thank you very much for your attention and smiles Ciao G

Tour: #72688, The Vatican Museums in Depth with a Private Guide., Rome, Lazio, Italy    view tour
Date: Oct 28/19

Guiseppe did an excellent job under difficult circumstances. Crowds are huge and, with additional cost ( and profit for the Vatican), you can minimize the wait to tour the Vatican Museum, Sistine Chapel and St. Peter's. No better way to see it all with a very knowledgeable guide. Highly recommended!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Jeecy, Thank you very much I am so happy you enjoyed the tour! The Vatican Museums are very large but we smartly set our tour up in order to explore entirely the Collection of antiquities housing also the ones guarded in the called New Wing, the Octagonal Courtyard, the Gallery of the Candelabras; additionally we saw the Gallery of the Tapestries the Gallery of the Maps, Raphael's Rooms, the Contemporary Collection and finally the Sistine Chapel, Saint Peter's Basilica and Saint Peter's Square!! Great!!

I highly recommend Giuseppe as a thoroughly knowledgeable, fun, and wonderful tour guide. This was our third tour with Giuseppi and he never disappoints! He has a thorough knowledge of the area and history. He navigates the Amalfi coast and Rome with amazing ability. He is a safe driver and took great care of my family for multiple days. We did a pizza making class that my children thoroughly enjoyed. He always has a excellent recommendation for lunch. Just ask Giuseppe for a custom tour!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: My dear Jackie!! I cannot wait to see you again with all your family to explore further beauties of Naples and Rome and to experience additional local traditions!! This year we enjoyed a full day tour to Herculaneum Ruins and we stopped in Sorrento for the Pizza Making. The second day I drove you to Rome but on the way to the Eternal City we stopped in Castelgandolfo to visit the ex Summer residence of the Pope and to enjoy a fantastic lunch in a historical local restaurant opened onto the Lake. Super!!!

We spent the full day with Giuseppe in the Amalfi Coast and Pompeii. The tour was outstanding and Giuseppe was very well organized. We never waited in any lines, got to see all the tourist attractions on our list and more. He customized our tours and took us to some beautiful non-tourist places and an excellent restaurant to savour the local cuisine. He is very knowledgable and we learned so much from him. If you want to experience Naples, Giuseppe is your guy!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Ilse and Gang!! This was the second day we spent together (the first was in Rome the day after!) and also this tour was successful! The ruins of Pompeii are like my home! My father, a venerable tour guide taught me all secrets and critical points of the site!! Then, the Amalfi Coast!! Yes you are right, I wanted you to enjoy a deep exploration of one of the most visited sites of the world, but far from the beaten tracks! Great idea!! Thank you Ilse!

We spent the day with Giuseppe in Rome. It was outstanding and Giuseppe was very well organized. We never waited in any lines, got to see all the tourist attractions on our list and more. He customized our tour to our preference and took us to an excellent restaurant to savour the local cuisine. He is very knowledgable, very easy to talk to and we learned so much from him. If you want to experience Rome, Giuseppe is your guy!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ilse! This was the first of the two days we spent together (the second was in Naples Area including Pompeii and the Amalfi Coast). I am super happy you enjoyed the two tours. In particular this one in Rome was very exciting because we explore The Vatican Museums, the Colosseum and lots of highlights of the Eternal City. Moreover we had the chance to taste the local cuisine in an excellent and mostly unknown by tourists small restaurant located behind Navona Square, the living room of Rome!! Thank you!

Guiseppe picked all 7 of us up at our hotel and took us to Pompeii and Mt. Vesuvius for a wonderful day trip. He was knowledgable, on time, friendly, well-spoken, and fun. A bit of a slow driver at times, but very safe. Would highly recommend him.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Grazie Deborah! Safety first!! It's my "motto"!! I am very happy you appreciated that!! With reference to the places we explored, Pompeii is a must of this area and I love to run private tours showing travelers the highlights and commenting about the way of living of the ancient Romans. Finally Mount Vesuvius! It's beauty is impressive! and it's exciting to climb the crater! Food around that area is excellent! You know it thanks to the restaurant we stopped for lunch! Thank you very much Regards Giuseppe

If you only have one day to visit Rome from Civitavecchia port..........Giuseppe is the person you have to use! You get picked up from the port and driven to all the important sites, with no line-waiting passes. We were 4 adults and could not believe how much Giuseppe 'packed' in for our 1 day tour. He was very knowledgeable and very accommodating. It is great to have him by your side as you visit all these important sites!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Dale&Gang! Thank you very much for your report!! Skip the line tickets are very important if you have just one day in Rome! But what is essential is a smart setting of the day! We did that and the result was FANTASTIC!! See you very soon here in Italy again!! what about Naples Area?? Ciao Giuseppe

This is our second tour we have taken with Giuseppe! He picked us up at the cruise terminal and after a quick drive we arrived at the magnificent Caserta Royal Palace. We are so fortunate that Giuseppe introduced us to this gem which rivals Versailles. Giuseppe was the perfect guide for our family. His tour has depth so that the adults could appreciate the history of the Palace and enough enjoyable facets to keep a young teen engaged. An outstanding tour! We can't wait for our next tour with Giuseppe.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Julie and Family, It was amazing for me to drive you to Caserta and to lead your tour of the Royal Palace including the Royal Apartments and the spectacular Gardens and Fountains!! After this we drove back to Naples for a great lunch overlooking the entire bay of Naples (incredible) and finally we drove to the Historical Center where I lead you to explore one of the masterpieces of the world artistic history: "The Seven Works of the Mercy" by Michelangelo Merisi known as Il Caravaggio. Amazing!

Absolutely flawless!!! Giuseppe was not only extremely knowledgeable but he was kind and very accommodating. We traveled with a party of six and saw many incredible sights in beautiful Rome. The driver Stefano was also great. He dropped us off at prefect locations and was always waiting for us in a new air conditioned Mercedes van. I give both of them my highest recommendation.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Grazie mille Matthew!! I am so happy you enjoyed our tour of Rome! Stefano and I have been working together since 2009 and we are super friends!! You were so cooperating too and the consequence is that our tour was perfect or as you say: flawless!! this is a new word for me!!

Our day with Guiseppe was awesome!! He picked up our party of 6 and extensive luggage at our Naples hotel. We traveled to Pompeii in amazement at his knowledge. Pompeii was fascinating but HOT yet Guiseppe found all the shade for us. Lunch in Sorrento was delicious and his expert driving all day was much appreciated. We were all sad when he dropped us at our hotel in Positano because we know it will be hard to find such a wonderful, enthusiastic guide again. A truly perfect day!! Thank you Guiseppe!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Corinne, it was my perfect day too!! Thank you very much!! Well, I am a licensed driver and a licensed guide! When I drive it's like for me to be already on site to explain, as guide, everything I know about the site!! It's a "professional disease" ahahahah I am so happy you enjoyed my company!! I love my job because it's a friends' factory! I love you Giuseppe

All I can say is WOW about our day with Giuseppe! We climbed to the top of Mount Vesuvius. It took me a while longer to get to the top due to health issues. He was so patient with me. Thank you!!! His knowledge was amazing. After that we went to Pompei and Giuseppe was so interesting. You can tell he has a passion for his work. I highly recommend him. Guiseppe was flexible with our schedule, so informative. He is one of the best tour guides that I have had. Thank you so much for a wonderful day

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: My dear Catherine, Thank you so much for such a nice review!! It was wonderful to flank you during our climbing up the crater of the Mount Vesuvius. Additionally in Pompeii you were great and gave me the chance to show you the Ruins as smart and interested travelers as you are, deserve!! Thank you very much My kind regards Giuseppe

5 out of 5, outstanding tour, Giuseppe was a great tour guide, friendly, knowledgeable, enthusiastic, courteous, prompt. He provided excellent guidance, including choices of restaurants for lunch while traveling along the Amalfi Coast. The Amalfi Coast is amazingly beautiful, and the ruins of Pompeii are endlessly fascinating.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Dave! Thank you very much for your excellent commentaries about our tour of Pompeii and the Amalfi Coast!! We drove straight to Amalfi from Naples in order to avoid the traffic and crowd. It was an excellent choice! Then we drove to Pontone, a village, unknown to the most for your lunch. Outstanding. Afterwards Ravello and finally we jumped into the archaeology with the visit of Pompeii! Grazie mille G

Guiseppe was an excellent tour guide. He took the extra time before we went into the Sistine Chapel to explain what we were about to see and this made our few minutes there very worthwhile. He did an outstanding job of describing many of the statues and artifacts in the Vatican museum and then took us to the Catacombs which were very unique and solemn. An excellent day and we would recommend him to anyone wishing to see highlights of Rome!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Josh!! Thank you for your excellent review!! Due to the prohibition of speaking into the Sistine Chapel, in all my tours of the Chapel, I entertain my guests, before entering, with a short class centered on the explanation of its frescoes and decorations. The class is essential to better understand the meaning of the frescoes and of the dozens of stories behind!! After that, you are right, the atmosphere of the Catacombs is solemn; and I would add “emotional”! Warm hug to all your splendid family

It was a privilege to spend the day with Giuseppe. He is a scholar who loves his content. The son of a venerable guide, Giuseppe is also distinguished. He met us at the train station in Naples and took us to Pompeii where we had a perfect morning. Then Giuseppe went on to Vesuvius with my husband and grandson where we walked to the top with them---something that went beyond the call of duty. 100% recommended.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Margery, It was my total privilege to spend the day with you and your family. The ruins of Pompeii are like my home and they have no secrets for me. Additionally I do not think that there is a funniest thing for kids to do here around from climbing the Mount Vesuvius!! Your grandson, "your husband and I" spent such a wonderful time up there, walking as far as the end of the volcanic path up along the rim of the crater. I am sending you to your tbl account some pictures of our experience!! Ciao G
