We scheduled Mario about a month before we arrived in Rome for a day trip to Amalfi, Sorrento and Poisitano. From beginning to end his service, driving and suggestions provided were second to none. In fact, he made two suggestions during our day for which I will be forever grateful. First, he suggested a restaurant at the top of the road with a spectacular view and wonderful food. The second was that we visit Pompeii during our day and he would set up a tour guide for us if we agreed. Did he ever! We followed his advice and had one of the most memorable experiences of our 14 day Italy trip. He set us up for a wonderful 2 hour tour of Pompeii with Lucio the best tour guide you can find for touring Pompeii! I would definitely recommend Mario for anyone needing a driver for day trips in the Naples or Amalfi area!
While planning our day trip in Naples, months before we departed for Europe, for a trip from the port to Amalfi, Positano and Herculaneum, we had no idea when we scheduled our trip for eight with Diego Sardella, that it would be "the best day of our two week trip in Europe!" He is the most delightful, funny, charismatic tour guide/host/driver anyone could ever book! He kept all of us in stitches with his dual usage of "Mama Mia!" Which we had no idea can be both a really great exclamation of joy to one of amazement with someone's poor actions! Traveling over the mountains in his Mercedes Van we were treated to the absolute best views from high atop the hills looking exotically at the beautiful Mediterranean from lookout perches to the stunningly captivating city of Amalfi that is carved out of the extremely rugged, rocky coastline, perched on the shore of the coast! Maneuvering the van like the true professional that he is, Diego really maximized our time at all three locations while providing constant entertainment for all! If you need a driver in Naples, you have to go with Diego Sardella, "Mama Mia," what a great time we had!
We had Mario for a full day private tour of Almalfi coast sorrento and pasitano, and wow what an expierence he is very professional and knowledgable , we have used him 3 years in a row when we visit italy , we tell him what we like and he arranges everything from start to finish exceptional tour everytime , thank you Mario , see you next year
There's a saying, "see Naples and die." You absolutely should see Napoli, it's one of the most fascinating cities in Europe I've ever seen. But if you attempt to drive yourself, death may come in shorter order than you'd want: the roadways in Campania would be a bit much for someone who isn't from the area. Fortunately, we engaged Private Driver Naples to take us where we wanted to go. Initially, I was going to hire them for just two days, but my booking experience was so good, I added a third. What made it so good?
For starters, they work with you to craft the most logistically-sensible itinerary to meet your needs. We wanted to do a lot: Pompeii, Herculaneum, a winery on Vesuvius and Paestum. Also, I wanted to do an ancestry tour of Molise, where my family hails from. First up was Molise, Diego greeted us at our Naples hotel on time in a Mercedes van. What became immediately clear was that Diego had an excellent level of historical knowledge, not just of Naples, but deep into the Molisean countryside. He beguiled us with all manner of facts which made the ride interesting and provided context to what we were seeing. My ancestry tour was an unforgettable experience, and Diego made it all the more special. Diego even recommended some great dining spots within Naples, and he was on point with all of his recommendations.
The next day, we were greeted by Manuel, Diego's cousin, who took us to Sorrento, Positano and on to Pompeii. Manuel also was quite knowledgeable and pointed out some interesting sites along the way. Moreover, he picked out a restaurant for lunch that provided a breathtaking view of Positano (the food was amazing too). Manuel is a character -- he even sang to us -- and he's got a fantastic voice!
The third day, we went to the Greek (yes, Greek) ruins at Paestum, a winery on Vesuvius for lunch that Diego arranged for us, and then on to Herculaneum. All the while, we learned more about the area and it made us wish we were staying another few days.
These guys know what they are doing. Not only do they exude warmth and professionalism, but they provide so much more than just a car and driver. It's as if they are on a personal mission to ensure you come away loving Campania as much as they do. Mission accomplished! if I ever come back to Napoli, and I sure hope I do, I will be engaging their services. There's a reason why they are so highly-rated, it's because they are the best.
My friend and I really enjoyed the tour with Diego!! Diego was a very good and nice tour guide. He tells us all the historical places that we can learn and all the great views that we can see. He is very flexible in such a way that he gives us time to take our pictures and to enjoy the view, and to shop.
Diego speaks very good english and will definitely learn lots of things from him. they would also recommend you the best restaurants with cheaper prices with a very nice view, which we have experienced and it really is one of a kind!!
Diego also helped us with all of our questions about the places and even in Naples, where we lived in, they go extra mile for us.
I would definitely recommend this tour, with Diego and Mario!! God bless you guys
Thank you Diego and Mario.
Mario was wonderful! From the moment he picked us up from our hotel in Naples he made our trip exciting, informative and pleasurable. He helped us cover all of the highlights of the coast as he transported us to our Pompei tour. He is very professional, friendly and kind. Most important, he is a very skilled driver on those beautiful windy roads of the coast and is a wealth of information on anything in the area. He recommended a fantastic restaurant for lunch that we will never forget! We continued to use his services for the rest of our time in the area for transport, and all of his drivers were as wonderful as he was. Thanks again Mario for a wonderful experience! Lillian & Nina
We stayed in Naples/Amalfi Coast for a week before departing on a Mediterranean cruise. To make the most of our stay, we decided to hire a private guide for 3 Days sightseeing. We booked "Private driver Naples" online a few weeks before our vacation. I could tell that the company was highly professional based on our email communication and I trusted them from day one.
Upon arrival in Naples airport we were met by Mario and the driver promptly at the airport, as agreed. The tours were one of the best we have experienced. Both, Mario and the driver did a remarkable job. They were very kind, friendly, accommodating. Mario was very knowledgeable and highly engaging. His English was impeccable and he always answered to the million of our questions. Mario also gave us many useful insider tips to make the best of our stay in "Costiera"
We have absolutely no complaints, and there is nothing that these guys did less than perfect. We were all very satisfied with the tours. I highly recommend Mario to everyone who wants to have an independent or guided tour, and "Private driver Naples" did an excellent job overall.
Thanks a lot and hope to see you again soon!
La nostra guida MARIO ci ha programmato un'ottima gita, facendoci vedere non solo la parte turistica di Napoli , ma anche la vita locale. La mattina ci ha portato a minori a fare colazione da Sal de riso poi siamo andati a visitare amalfi e ravello , a fine giornata sulla strada del ritorno ci siamo fermati nell'incantevole borgo di cetara per degustare e comprare "la colatura di alici" , che SPECIALITA'. La sera poi , Mario ci è venuto a prendere ed a piedi ci ha portato a degustare la vera pizza Napoletana , passeggiando per lo splendido centro storico del capoluogo campano.
Questo gruppo punta sulla qualità ed è stato molto facile organizzare le escursioni con loro - complimenti a MARIO , persona simpatica , educata e davvero preparatissima su tutto il territorio.
