What an amazing experience! Giuseppe did a fantastic job helping us to navigate the crowds in Pompeii. Without him I'm sure we would've never seen as much as we did. His knowledge of the history was amazing as well. He was great with our two boys and made the experience one that we will always remember. Thank you so much!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Nick, Thank you very much! I am so happy you enjoyed the day we had between the Ruins of Pompeii and the Mt Vesuvius. Your kids showed a very good knowledge of the Ancient Roman History and of the facts of Pompeii and their questions were very precise and smart. Also the second half of our shore excursion was fantastic between a genuine lunch in a nice restaurant by the foot of the Mount Vesuvius and the drive to the top of the Volcano. Very exciting. A big hug to Amy, Alex and Andrew!! Ciao G

Date: Jun 29/18

We spent 2 days with Giuseppe, one in Rome and one in Naples. After Rome everyone needed a little easier, breezier day. Giuseppe sensed this, and after some conversation took us to some of the most wonderful places from our vacation. Our time spent on the Amalfi Coast was some of our favorite memories of the whole trip (especially the restaurant he choose). Pompeii really captured my (adult) kids imaginations, and his knowledge is astounding. There is no substitute for passion, and Giuseppe has that!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Mammamia, Jennifer! What a wonderful comment!! Thank you very much The visit of Rome including the Vatican Museums, Colosseum and highlights as we had requires attention, concentration and, due to the congestion and heat, also physical vigour from both sides: guide and guests! Everything went well because you gave me the maximum cooperation. The exploration of the Amalfi Coast and Pompeii was the opportunity to enjoy a more relaxing day based on views, sea, sun, colors, food and a bit of History! Perfect!

If you want to meet the man that has the absolute MOST knowledge of Rome (or elsewhere in Italy, too) then you should absolutely hire Giuseppe. I have no idea how he knows sooooo much history and has soooo much knowledge about everywhere we went! He made certain that all of us saw the highlights of Rome. He was charming, energetic, and you could really tell that he loves what he does. Thank you, Giuseppe for sharing our time in Rome!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Jennifer, thank you again for your wonderful comment about our tour of Rome and the day after of the Pompeii and the Amalfi Coast! In Rome we explored the Vatican Museums including the Sistine Chapel and Saint Peter's Basilica, the Colosseum and some of its highlights including the Pantheon and the Trevi Fountain!! Spectacular!! Thank you so much!! I loved to show you such a Beauty!! Big hug to all of you!! Giuseppe

We used Giuseppe in Rome yesterday and so glad we used him also for this day in the Amalfi Coast and Pompeii. Very professional guy with a wealth of information. Giuseppe is brilliant when it comes to the history of both Rome, the Amalfi Coast and Pompeii. Loved the Amalfi Coast and the hidden gems that Giuseppe was able to show us on this beautiful day in Italy. Thanks Giuseppe and Tours by Locals by making this tour absolutely incredible. Did so much in one day-definitely will be back!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Suzanne, Thank you very much for your wonderful commentaries about our two days in Rome and Amalfi Coast plus Pompeii. In Rome I selected an itinerary to keep you away from the hidden paths and to go in depth with art and history. Lighter was our day along the Amalfi Coast where we enjoyed fantastic moments in Amalfi town, in Pontone (a hidden gem overlooking the infinitive) for lunch and Ravello for your free time. In the early afternoon blessed by a nice breeze we explored Pompeii! Great! Hug G

What an amazing tour of Rome! So many beautiful things to see in such a small amount of time-but Giuseppe made it all happen. We were a family of seven on this adventure to see part of Rome in one day. We were all amazed at the amount of knowledge and great history lessons given by our tour guide. Saw the Vatican, Sistine Chapel, St. Peters Basilica, the Colosseum, the Trevi Fountain and many other historic sites. Highly recommend this magnificent tour guy with such a wealth of information. Thank you!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Suzanne, My great pleasure to have been at your family service for a couple of days visiting Rome and Pompeii with the Amalfi Coast. In Rome thanks to your cooperation, great attention and smiles, we had the chance to learn about the Sistine Chapel and its decoration. We saw many things made by the movies very famous like...Piazza Navona. Typical lunch to enjoy the real Roman Cuisine and finally the Colosseum!! What a tour, what a experience!! Thank you very much. Hug to all the family! G

We had a great time with Giuseppe! We were able to arrange for him to pick us up at our Airbnb in Naples for an extra charge, and it was money well spent. We were at Pompeii when it opened, and beat most of the crowds and most of the heat. This is the way to go! He was very knowledgeable and very patient as we had a group of five with ages ranging from 12 to 86. Highly recommend this guide and this tour!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Jeffrey!! I had a great time with you and your family, too!! We did a great tour of Pompeii and great fun during the journey from Naples to Pompeii in my "super van" :))) Hope our paths will cross again Thank you very much Giuseppe

Giuseppe was a walking history book! Having a driver and guide all day is the perfect way to see Rome! He knew all the shortcuts, best local dining, gelato place, driving shortcuts, express lines & advance ticket sales. We could have NEVER accomplished what we did without him on our own. Giuseppe also was so good at communicating beforehand, and flexible with our scheduling as best he could. He knew how to avoid the worst crowds. Book with 100% confidence of a fabulous day! You will not be disappointed!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Suzanne, Thank you very much for your wonderful reviews about our tours in Rome and Pompeii plus Amalfi Coast. I did my best to show you the beauties of the Eternal City selecting an itinerary which kept us away from the beaten path and the same it was for the Amalfi Coast and Pompeii. They are always very congested but we beated the crowds exploring Amalfi first, enjoying the lunch in a hidden location as Pontone and spending free time in Ravello. In the early afternoon, Pompeii. Great!!

Giuseppe is a wonderful guide! His tour was organized the best way for us to see as much as Rome as possible in one day. He was accomodating to our family. In the middle of our Vatican tour, we were hungry. So he stopped the tour and took us to a snack place right there. He always had drivers waiting after each site. He was very knowlegeable and we enjoyed learning all about Rome. The tour was amazing!

Our day in Rome was amazing and we do feel it was definitely more so because of our wonderfully personable expert guide, Giuseppe! His knowledge of the ancient culture, buildings and artifact were detailed and passionate! We visited all of Rome's amazing historical sites without feeling rushed or exhausted. He even recommended a bistro for lunch which was absolutely authentic and delicious (I'm Italian, so I I'm a good judge). I would recommend Giuseppe as a guide 100+ percent! The BEST ever!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Shirley, thank you very much for your passionate comments about our tour of Rome. We had great fun exploring the beauties of Rome like the Colosseum and the Sistine Chapel like we were a group of friends. I hope we could repeat the same experience in Naples Area very soon.

Walking through the Coliseum, Forum, Trevi Fountain Spanish steps, etc. was so enjoyable with him. His expertise with the historical landmarks enhanced our experience greatly, turning our day into memories we will long remember. He even paced the walking to in a relaxed manner as to still see everything without feeling like a trek.

At our request because of threatening weather on the day we were to tour Pompeii, Giuseppe rearranged the schedule. We went to the National Archeological Museum in the morning to view the Pompeii & Herculaneum exhibits. After lunch, he took us to Oplontis (a covered excavation) which we found quite interesting. His flexibility in adjusting the tours at the last minute was greatly appreciated.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Sally, I think that the essence of the "private tour" is the flexibility. it's the key factor which distinguishes a private tour from a standard tour!! It's clear that not all the guides, even running private tours, possess the skills and knowledge, in one word, the shoulders, to be "flexible"!! I am super happy you enjoyed your day between the archaeological museum and oplontis including genuine lunch break in the historical centre of Naples, with me!! Thank you very much, Giuseppe

Giuseppe is a wonderful tour guide and we had an amazing day with him. He picked us up at our apartment in Minori and drove us to Pompeii and Herculaneum and then dropped us off at the Naples train station. He was an excellent driver and provided commentary on the history of the area the whole way. We spent the the day touring Pompeii and Herculaneum and were enthralled with his stories of life in the ancient cities before the Mt Vesuvius eruption. Our day was full and informative. It was great!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Susan, Thank you very much for your wonderful commentary about our day between Pompeii and Herculaneum from the spectacular Minori on the Amalfi Coast.

A ride to the airport may seem like a simple thing, but for a group of 7 people we wanted ease and convenience without needing to deal with public transportation. The van was always clean, stocked with water and free wifi. After spending a week with Giuseppe showing us all different parts of Italy he also brought us back to Rome to the airport. He always greeted us on time and with a big smile. He was so welcoming and personable each and every day. We highly suggest Giuseppe for any and all Italy tours!

We were so happy to meet Giuseppe again in Rome after having him as guide the day before in Naples. He had a driver (Dominico) pick us up from the Cruise terminal on a timely basis. Dominico was very friendly and was great in navigating the traffic in Rome. He practically got us to the doorsteps of each attraction. Giuseppe was just as great in Rome as he was in Naples. He scheduled our visits to various attractions in an efficient manner to coincide with the less busy times. He is simply great.

Giuseppe was wonderful, very knowledgeable about Pompeii. He was able to show us all the major site without being in a crowd of people. I was able to get pictures with no one in them. He made sure we saw everything and understood the meaning. He made sure we were comfortable on the drive. After Pompeii we decided we wanted pizza in Naples so he took us to the best pizza place, it was on the sea side. Excellent location and pizza. Good price also. Once finished they called and Giuseppe took us back to ship

Giuseppe provided a truly memorable Neopolitan experience. His knowledge of Pompeiian history and archeology is thorough and professionally presented. Vesuvius was closed due to wildfires, so we visited Solfatara crater and got a driving tour of scenic, historical Naples instead. It helped us appreciate the beauty of the city in a very short time!

Giuseppe was perfect!! We were looking to do a history-based trip through Rome with 4 young children and 2 moms. We could not have done it without Giuseppe. He was so helpful with the history, navigation, coordinating lunch, and keeping it exciting for the kids. He was also very flexible and was able to tailor the trip to what our children could do at the time. Giuseppe helped me coordinate a "reenactment" of how Julius Ceaser died in Shakespeare's play. It was perfect and he even filmed it all!!

Since we had been to Napoli before, he showed us some hidden gems we had not yet discovered such as the veiled Christ sculpture in San Severo, the eye-opening Fontanella Cimitero, etc. We also had a wonderful lunch along the Lungo Mare with beautiful views and delicious local food. We travel often and I highly recommend Giuseppe. He is knowledgeable, engaging, and a delight!!

Giuseppe was a wonderful guide! We joined his Pompeii tour and he was able to bring the city back to life for us with his clear explanations of how the city lived during those times. His knowledge of the ruins is amazing! We had a small glitch with our travel plans, and arrived late for our tour but Giussepe kindly accommodated us with no problems. I would recommend Giuseppe again for any tour!

We visited Naples, Amalfi Coast and Herculaneum with Giuseppe as our guide and Fabio drove. Giuseppe was very informative, has a great personality and accommodated our needs. We had people in our group who had walking difficulties and he was able to work with us to give us all a wonderful tour. He knows the ins and outs of traveling the Amalfi Coast so we missed all of the crowds and traffic. He found us a wonderful restaurant for our lunch and gave us a great day. Highly recommend Giuseppe as your guide.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Jeffrey, Thank you very much for your wonderful review. I am so glad you enjoyed the tour Herculaneum, Amalfi Coast and Naples. It was successfully thanks also to your perfect cooperation and smiles. We had fun and I really hope to see you again in order to keep exploring the hidden treasures of Naples and it's surroundings. Be well Giuseppe

This was the second day of touring with Giuseppe. He met us in Rome the day before and this day with Tommie as driver, took us first to Pompeii for a detailed tour, where we beat the tour buses and crowds. Afterward, Tommie negotiated the twists and turns over the hill to the Amalfi coast where we again enjoyed a wonderful day of dramatic vistas and learning about the towns. Giuseppe is charming and went above and beyond to help us get photos and understanding. My kids' favorite day. Fantastico!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Carol, Thank you very much!! this was my favorite day too!! we had fun and I am sure that your kids will keep the memories of Pompeii and of the Amalfi Coast for a long time!! A big hug to all the family Giuseppe

Giuseppe escorted our family of 4 on a shore excursion. His driver Luigi, met us dockside and was very sociable and likable the entire trip. Giuseppe met us at the Colossium and was energetic and charismatic. He went above and beyond to meet our needs and make our day special by purchasing advance tickets, helping to circumvent lines in every location we requested, recommended a restaurant and gave us an added bonus city view stop on the way out. Every detail was perfect.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Carol, The beauties of Rome helped me to create the ideal tour for you and your family. Moreover, your kids were perfect listening to every single word I said to describe the Heritage of Rome!! Thank you for your attention and for your smiles!! I hope to see you again very soon to show you other hidden corners of the Eternal City I embrace you all Giuseppe

Giuseppe is AWESOME! To sum it up, he is like a really smart friend showing you around his city. He took us on a tour of the Vatican museum. He is well educated in art history and especially the works in the Sistine Chapel. Most importantly, we laughed and joked like friends. He taught us practical things that made our stay in Rome easier such as how to use the Metro, Mass schedules, where to find good restaurants and quality religious "souvenirs", and good Italian wine. We will definitely hire him again!

We so lucked out with Giuseppe guiding us through Rome. On day one he took us to the Vatican museums, Vatican including the Sistine Chapel. He took care of all the tickets in advance and could not have been more accommodating. He found us a place for lunch and left us to visit alone, with we loved. We also visited the Forum, the Catacombs and the Coliseum. A true highlight for me was the Borghese gallery. He is the BEST

Giuseppe was the best guide we could get for this kind of place. His wealth of information made it the best experience ever. As we toured Rome, he shared all the history in a captivating way. I was amazed by his knowledge of the history of the places we visited. He was enthusiastic and navigated us through the crowd making it possible to see a lot in limited time. I definitely recommend Giuseppe as your tour guide for Rome.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Tamara, Thank you so much for your comments. I have loved to show to such wonderful persons the beauties of Rome. The rain bothered, but we were stronger than it, making the best of our time in the Eternal City. Thank you again and have fun, always!!! Ciao Giuseppe
