"...thanks so much for our wonderful day in Rome! I did not think it would be possible to "do Rome in a day" but you made it possible. From meeting us at the pier in Civitavecchia with your spotless Mercedes SUV, getting us to Rome just in the nick of time to see 'the REAL Pope:, to being patient with us as we wanted to stop for pizza, bathrooms, or souveniers, to our great lunch in the little 'out of the way' local restaurant you took us to, to getting us back to the pier in perfect could not have been a more perfect day. We were able to see everything that we wanted to see, and did feel that we got a 'true taste' of Rome, even though we only had hours there. I would recommend La Dolce Vita Tours to anyone going to Italy in a heartbeat. You were wonderful! Thank you again... Pamala, Troy, Rick and Laura Rodic" Kentuchy - USA

"Fabrizio, Now that we’re back home, I wanted to take a moment to thank you for the most excellent service that we received during our guided tours of Rome, Florence and the Chianti region. Your guides were cordial, engaging and VERY knowledgeable. We had a most entertaining and educational experience. We especially enjoyed the Chianti tour with Fabrizio, who was very engaging, knowledgeable and friendly. Likewise, the Vatican and the Uffizzi were both outstanding, though I have to take a moment to single out the young lady who guided us through Florence and the Uffizzi Galleries. Her knowledge and manner were unforgettable. I felt like we had a university course in Art History. She was truly exceptional and stood out in a very polished collection of tour guides. Thanks again. Best regards" Mike Nicola. New York -USA

"Hi Fab, we were a group of 10 people and we booked several tours (Sienna to Rome, Amalfi Coast from ship and Florence, Lucca and Pisa) with you while in Italy and just want to let you know how pleased we were with all your services.The drivers were pleasant and guides extremely knowledgeable. We thought your guides were exceptional, Michael in Rome was so knowledgable, as was the guide in Pompeii and Florence - we really enjoyed them. If we have the opportunity to come to Italy again, we would certainly use your services and also highly recommend LDV to others that are travelling in Italy. On behalf of our group, we say Thank you for providing this excellent service. Esther Hart, Florida - USA

"Dear Fab, We write to thank you very much for making our recent visit to Italy in early December 2005 so wonderful. The full-day tour of Rome with you was fantastic: you are extremely knowledgeable; your love of history is contagious; and you are very humorous too. There is so much to see in Rome that it really helps to have a guide give us an organized orientation, as you did for us. We especially appreciate your showing us the not-so-obvious but just-as-stunning sights that we would not ordinarily know about as tourists. You also helped arrange for us a combination tour & transfer from a**i to Florence via Siena and San Gimignano.And last but not least, we can't thank you enough for being so patient with and understanding of our slow pace and our many changes of plans.Wishing you all our best in the New Year" P.L.Nguyen New Jersey - USA

"We joined La Dolce Vita for the Florence and Rome tours in mid-Oct. We had an extended family of 12 cruising together at the Mediterranean, so we basically had a day (8-9 hours) to spend at each city. La Dolce Vita provided us with a comfortable and roomy mini-van at both places, and our drivers (both named Pietro) were very nice. Our tour guide in Florence was Luca. He showed us things that we wanted to see and brought us shopping which was great. In Rome, we had a wonderful tour guide, Rosella. She scheduled our short day extremely well so that we were able to see everything on our list. She was also very flexible in accommodating our schedule and needs. We got a chance to meet Fab in Rome. He’s a very nice guy and he’s very responsive to our chains of emails before we booked the tours from him. Big thanks to you all to make our trip to Europe a wonderful and a memorable one" Jeff & Angle, Washington USA.

"Fabrizio, thank you so much for providing us with one of the highlights of our nine day vacation to Rome! The day we spent with you exploring Pompeii and Positano was one we will never forget! You guided us from the amazing historical site of Pompei to the breathtaking beauty of the Amalfi Coast! From reading your guestbook I wish we had utilized your services in Rome, too. There's always next time! And thanks to our day with you, I am sure we will return! You were great keeping all four of us happy for ten hours, including two teenagers, something which is not easy to do! We will be happy to recommend you to any friends bound for Rome! Grazie mille! Ciao! P.S. Your recommendation of the Chocolate Truffle Tartufo Dessert at Tre Scalini in Piazza Navona was a great one. We went there the very next day and indulged!"

"We were a group of 11 adults and 7 children on a cruise that stopped at Florence, Rome, and Naples. You provided us with an 19 seater bus which was perfect for our group! La Dolce Vita Tours met us at the pier, gave us highly knowledgable guides that spoke wonderful English. We had a very specific time table and were so pleased at how much our tour guides were able to show us. The guides and drivers were flexible extremely accomodating! In planning our trip, any questions we sent by email or phone call was answered very quickly. We would NOT HESITATE to use La Dolce Vita Tours again in the future!!!! Thank you so much for your professionalism and for a wonderful vacation for my entire family!" Ann and Joe Macaluso, New York - USA
