We just returned from a wonderful day to Pompei and Salvatore was our magnificent driver! He picked us up on time and was so professional and understanding of our every need. He went above and beyond in taking care of us in every way and even helped us find a voltage converter. His driving was terrific and I felt very safe with him. The van was so clean and comfortable. He was easy to talk to and a delight to spend the day with, thank you Salvatore for making our day to Pompei and the winery absolutely perfect!!

Salvatore (Sasi) was absolutely wonderful. My children and I felt very safe with him and the entire trip was seamless. He took us to a wonderful pizzeria in Naples that we will never forget. We recommend him highly, thank you so much Sasi!

We have used Salvatore on many occasions and have always had the best level of service, he is punctual, always very friendly and extremely knowledgeable about the area. They have taken us all around the amalfi coast, napoli area and further afield. Will use again when next in Sorrento, see you soon amico.
