What a terrific day my wife and I had with Adolfo driving us down the Amalfi coast. Such a careful and courteous driver. Full of facts we would never have known otherwise. A beautiful drive, a lovely lunch at a spot well off the beaten path, and a charming guide. What a fabulous time.

Tour: Transfer from Naples to Positano plus Pompei and Winery, Naples, Campania, Italy
Date: Jun 9/19

Adolfo was amazing! We flew into Naples early in the morning and set up a transfer to Positano. Since we had several hours to kill before checking into our hotel in Positano, we asked him for suggestions on Pompeii and a nearby winery. He did not disappoint. We had a lovely time walking around Pompeii and then enjoyed Cantina del Vesuvio (wine tour, tasting and delicious homemade pasta) before heading toward Positano. He gave us plenty of suggestions for our time in Positano as well. Molto bene!

We had a wonderful day in the Naples area with Adolfo as our guide.My husband has some walking disabilities and he was so very helpful taking us where he is able to get around or just finding something for him to do in areas where this is not an option like Pompeii.One of our highlights of our whole trip was the authentic lunch we had at a family owned restaurant chosen by him.These memories will be forever. I absolutely will rate him with a 5 and will recommend him to anyone looking for a Guide!

Thank you Adolfo for an amazing day on the Amalfi Coast Positano and Pompei. Our group of 6 had a wonderful time and will highly recommend you to friends travelling to Italy. One of our many highlights included our lunch stop at Restorante Zio Sam where we were invited to cook our own pizzas. What a wonderful memory we will carry with us forever. Adolfo we thank you very much.

Great driver, which is needed on the Amalfi coast, and tour guide. Knows the area well and if you take his advice (we did), you avoid the major traffic. Adolfo has a great personality and made the tour great.

Just drove, never explained were we were was interesting facts we in each part of tour, took us to the ruins and gave us less than an hour to go in which takes longer than that. Got us to the dock knowing it was a weekend and we had to get out and walk in the pouring rain at least a half mile to ship was so unprofessional. Would never recommend him

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Sheri since it was a year agò I don't remember this tour, I am very sorry for your unsatisfactory experience. naturally, receiving a negative review after a year was not good for me. I would have preferred to have known immediately that it was not to your liking. Sorry again

Adolfo loves his job and it shows! Everything went beautifully! He knows the best times to hit all of the sights and knows this region like his backyard. The lunch we had overlooking the sea was one of our most memorable of the entire trip. His English is great, and he has lots of stories to tell. He was extremely patient with our group as we had some people who didn't walk well. This was much appreciated!

Adolfo was on time and easy to find. The van was clean + A/C worked well. He knows the area well and made sure to stop at all the most picturesque overlooks. He timed the day perfectly. His English is strong. He was friendly, but also gave us our space. If you want to go to Positano, you would do well to ASK Adolfo where to get coffee and where to eat. He has strong ideas, and frankly, the restaurant he advocated for actually was beautiful, served great food, and we had an amazing experience there.

This was by far the best tour of our entire trip. Aldolfo was extremely knowledgeable and willing to stop anytime we wanted to take pictures of the glorious scenery. We told him we would like to have lunch at a very local spot. He took us to the most beautiful spot we had ever seen. The owner's just kept bringing out freshly made delious food prepared minutes before we arrived.

Adolfo was the perfect guide. He was on time, his vehicle is very nice and he is such a personable person. He bent over backwards to make sure our day spent with him was as perfect as he could make it. He took us places busses could not travel and took us to a family owned restaurant for lunch. We met the gardener and toured the garden that provides fresh vegies for the restaurant then we met the owners. We had a beautiful lunch outside over looking the town and the ocean. Wish I could give him 6 *.

Adolpho arrived earlier than the appointed meeting time. His Mercedes minivan can hold 7 passengers. He has been a driver/guide for 20+ years. I wanted to see the Puzzouli area where he is from. Once he realized my interest, he took me to many areas not seen by regular tourists. Very friendly and knowledgeable. Highly recommended.

This was our second trip with Adolfo as our guide. We had hit it off so well on our first trip we were looking forward to spending the day with Adolfo touring the Amalfi coast. He did not disappoint! Adolfo brought us to the most scenic spots of course, but also to many places the bus tours cannot get into and some special treats for us where his intimate experience with the area really shines through.

Tour: Ancestors Roccadaspide, Sorrento, Campania, Italy
Date: Oct 5/17

My family from America had hoped to see our ancestral home while visiting Italy, find some information about our family from the town, and possibly even meet some relatives. We hired Adolfo to assist us in this endeavor. In short he went above and beyond our expectations. He not only got us to and from our desired location, but assisted us with communication with the residents of the town and city records officials, and delighted us with unexpected local experiences. Adolfo made that an incredible day!

Adolfo was an absolutely joy! He made an "Amazing Race"-style itinerary possible during a quick port call from our Seabourn cruise. Easy pick-up in Amalfi followed by quick trip to Positano and an extraordinary lunch with a view on our way to Ravello. On top of being a wonderful driver on hair-pin turns, he is witty and has a great sense of humor. We highly recommend him!

When my wife and I get off at a port from a cruise ship, we generally look for a guide who knows the area and can drive us to all of the sites. We were lucky to meet and hire Adolfo. We wanted to tour the Amalfi coast for the day. He was knowledgable, professional and friendly. We highly recommend him !!! Mark & Kathleen

Adolfo made our Amalfi Coast and Pompeii tour the highlight of our trip to Italy. He knew just where to stop for great pictures and was very educated about the coast. He took us the an incredible restaurant in Amalfi for lunch as well. I would recommend Adolfo to anyone doing this part of a Italy for the first time.

Adolfo is very knowledgeable, friendly, and accommodating guide. He speaks beautiful English and went out of his way to make our Pompeii tour memorable. He recommended his colleague Dario to guide us through Pompeii and Dario, a professor of archeology, was brilliant at bringing the history of Pompeii to life. We had a nice trek to the summit of Vesuvio and did a quick stop at Herculaneum. Adolfo was clearly respected in the tourism community and got us to the front of the line every time. Bravo, Adolfo!

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED - AMAZING DRIVER AND TOUR GUIDE. Adolfo picked up our group of 6 at the Salerno Cruise Port and provided an amazing 8 hour tour of Sorrento, Positano and several other spots along the Amalfi Coast. He was prompt, spoke great english, and offered great suggestions for photo breaks & lunch. Everyone in the group agreed this was the best day of the entire 2 week vacation. Thanks Adolfo.

Adolfo was an excellent driver, very informative, helpful, and flexible. He was fun to talk to as an Italian from Naples who knows the Amalfi coast very well. He recommended a great lunch spot, towns to explore, and a wonderful walking path between Amalfi and Ravello for those of us who wanted to get out of town a little ways. We couldn't have done what we did without a driver who knew the area.

Adolfo arrives in our meeting place before our train arrives. He is a good guide/host by showing us good food in Sorrento and professional archeologist as our guide in Pompeii. He showed us the beauty of Naples, although we are short in time. He timed and adjusted our trip so we can catch our train back to Rome. Excellent service. Highly recommended. Thanks Adolfo for a wondeful day...

You would not be disappointed with anything you book using Adolfo. He has been doing this for over 20 years and no one knows the area like he does. The private tours he does with up to 8 passengers is amazing. Adolfo has a new Mercedes Mini-bus that is just as comfortable as it can be. You have his knowledge and you have flexibility. We personally designed our own tour and it was awesome. We did the four cites on the coast with Lunch in Ravello. Truly amazing. Adolfo is your guide, he is amazing
