We could not have been more pleased with your service. Your father, Umberto,
was exceptional. He really touched us when he gave us olive oil that your
family had made. ( Even having your sister meet him half way to Amalfi.) The shops
that he recommended were first class! And the lovely restaurant on the beach
in Praiano was the best bouillabaisse I have ever had. We only expected to be
there for about 45 minutes for lunch...but enjoyed it so much that it was more
like an hour and a half.
The tour of Pompeii was terrific. One could easily spend an entire day there.
In Florence the driver was Max he was knowledge of the area and very polite and courteous more. Even the restaurant in Florence that Max recommended was terrific.
Hopefully, the next time we visit Florence, we can spend more time enjoying
the food there, rather than rushing ourselves because of the time constraints
of having to be back on a cruise ship, and wanting to see all of the beauty of
Florence. (Our problem, not his.)
In Civitavecchia, Juan Carlo was amazing at his knowledge of Rome and it's
wonders. He even knew where to get tickets to the Coliseum without waiting in
line. He really earned his money that day, I think he took us to see all of the
major sights in Rome. What a hectic day that was!
Overall, a truly great experience, well worth the money. Much more satisfying
than the ship's excursions, where you were with 35 people, at each place a
maximum of 20 minutes -- and constantly waiting for some passenger to show up,
because they were late. Or the fact that the Naples ship excursion supposedly
takes you to Pisa, but does not allow you enough time to actually go up the
Tower (that was a treat)!
Again, thank you and your drivers -- especially Umberto. Please give him our
regards and thank him for his generosity.
