We definitely won the lottery when you picked us up for our tour of the Amalfi coast. There can’t be anyone with more knowledge and passion for this magnificent part of Italy. Your passion was contagious and I’m happy to say I “caught” it. YOU made this tour spectacular.
Thank you!

Hi Mariano,

We would like to compliment you on your company's service.

Our tour guide Simone picked us up from Florence airport and delivered up to our apartment in Loro Ciuffenna (60 km from airport), dealing calmly and competently with a difficult road system.

A few days later he collected us for a tour of San Gimiagno and Sienna as well as a wine tasting in the Chianti region.

Simone was very knowledgeable about the history of the sites.

On arrival at each of our destination he would point out the key features and then allow us to roam as we saw fit.

Simone, many thanks for your time and effort in making our journey enjoyable, fun and informative.

We would have no hesitation in recommending your company to any prospective tourists

Dear Mariano

I hope you and your family are well. We missed our trip to Sorrento this spring. We went to Croatia and ended up in Rome for Holy Week and attended mass at St. Peter's with Pope Francesco. It was wonderful.

I wanted to thank you again for helping our friend Ginny find her family last year April 2013. It was a thrill for her to meet her mother's first cousin. Your efforts were very much appreciated. Ginny had just retired and this was her first trip out of the country. She had a wonderful time and the highlight was our day in Controne and the lunch afterward at the lovely restaurant you took us to.

When she returned home she was not well and her health failed very quickly. She died a year after her wonderful trip. I feel very blessed to have made that trip possible for her and I am happy you insisted we go there that day even though we had very little information with us. You had faith we could find her family and you did! You are very special, Mariano. We will never forget that day.

Very warm regard,


Cathy Hester

Ciao Mariano,
I am late with this very thankful email but it is still very sincere. We were blessed to have you as our guide July 21, 2014 Monday from Naples to Pompeii, Sorrrento, Positino and everything in between. We had lunch with you at a local place (outside Sorento and sipped 0r wine as the rain fell. You may remember my husband died October,22, 2013 but your attention to detail and caring for my feelings was so appreciated. I am forever grateful for your kindness and compassion.

We booked our tour of Italy with Pleasant Travel.
I have been to Italy with my wife twice to Italy. During those trips we used the public transport mostly by train.
For this trip in May 2014 we have two couples joining us for our trip. We decided to look for a private guide and driver.

We wanted a more flexible tour and read about Pleasant Travel on Tripadvisor. I contacted Mariano via email. Mariano was very prompt and detailed with his email replies and was able to recommend and advise me as to what I was looking for.

We were looking for a guide who can speak English , safe driver, and guide who could explain to us the culture , history and stories about the places visited. We found all of that in Pleasant Travel.

Everything turned out wonderful, we had a great time. We enjoyed our time in Italy. We had fun, ate great local food. The travels were well organized and they were very knowledgeable and passionate guides, very caring and thoughtful.

We had Mariano as our guide for three days in the Amalfi Coast. Mariano met us in our accommodation in Rome and drove us to Sorrento via Naples. On our way we visited many lovely small towns. We headed towards Frascati and continued to La Cinciaria where we visited some medieval villages. We passed by Via Appia and had a brief stopover at Naples. We continued along the coastline to Sorrento, along the way we stop-by to have coffee and lunch recommended by Mariano which was excellent.
On the way to Sorrento, Mariano stop us at Castel Gondolfo at our request.
We visited Sorrento, Positano, Ravello the next three days and stayed in Piano di Sorrento in an accommodation which Mariano recommended and it was excellent.

After Amalfi Coast we travelled with Pricilla as our guide and Antonio as our driver to Umbria(Assisi, Cascia, Spoleto, Spello) Le Marche(Maserata, Recanati, Loreto) and Tuscany(Florence, Siena, Pisa, San Gimignano, Lucca, Vinci) .
Both Pricilla and Antonio were great. We had a great time visiting the many places, the explanation of the culture, history, food and even shopping.

We would recommend Mariano, Antonio and Pricilla from Pleasant Travel to our friends without hesitation.

We have attached some photographs. Pictures speak a thousand words and you can see from these photos that we were had a great time. The steps everywhere were a challenge, we explored many places recommended but we have come back with stronger legs and eagerly looking forward to our next trip with Pleasant Travel.

Thanks for an amazing guided tour of the Amalfi coast. Your knowledge of the area and your suggestions on restaraunts was wonderful. The shuttle service from Rome to Sorrento was also well worth it. I have already passed your name along to our friends who plan to travel in 2015.

Hello Mariano,
I just wanted to let you know we arrived home safely. Our trip was so wonderful because of you! You are definitely in the right business. Meeting your family and having dinner in your home was the highlight of our trip! Your family’s farm is a very special place and we are so glad that you shared it with us. Remember to give us a call when you come into the USA. Thank you again.

Sincerely, Brenda Garber

You were a fantastic and
knowledgeable guide for me and my friends on our recent tour of the Amalfi coast. It was the best of the 17 days we spent in Italy, Greece and Turkey. I will mention your company to everyone I know who travels in the area.
Thanks again for the warm and wonderful memories.

Dear Mariano,
Words can't express the gratitude that we have for you and your great company. We had an amazing day touring the Amalfi coast and you have set the bar extremely high for any other places that we will visit. You could not have been more accommodating and welcoming. We really, really enjoyed touring the farm, and Priscilla and Antonio did a great job seeing that we got to enjoy what the Amalfi coast has to offer. We will definitely be back again!
All the best to you and your wonderful family!!!

Hi Mariano,
Thank you so much for providing our driver, Angelo, in Rome. Our 2 day tour was outstanding! With so many visitors for the Cannonization of the 2 Popes, we were still able to see so many of the wonderful sites of Rome with Angelo as our guide and driver.
I see my niece has posted her thanks for the earlier trip. Thank you again..

Hello Mariano,
Outstanding one-day tour of the Amalfi Coast via Pleasant Travel and Mariano. Very, very informative, beautiful sites, excellent tour of the area and the culture. Mariano took us to sites that we would have never known........our lunch was incredible. One of the best tours we had while visiting Italy.

Mariano, sorry this is so late but had misplaced your card and just found it. Your Amalfi Coast Drive was FABULOUS! It was by far our favorite tour of the Mediterrean. All the places you stopped, all the info was so much than we had even dreamed! Thank you, thank you! Your knowledge and your love of the area was so evident.
The lunch at your farmhouse....absolutely to die for, when possible everyone should do this special experience!!
We feel so Blessed to have had you as our guide. Thank you Mariano for a wonderful tour!

just came back from Rome and Naples and used Pleasant Travel services in both places. This is actually our second time with Pleasant Travel and were over the top satisfied service provided.

Giovanni in Rome was a great driver and was able to maximize the experience. We were able to see more that what we would of if we had done it on our own. We were traveling from a cruise, time wise limited but the sites extensive. Thanks to Johni

In Naples Antonio and Roberta were also excellent. We customized our tour to Monti Cassino and Herculaneum and were impressed with the easy of the whole day and that were were able to experience more then we could imagined.

This is a testament to Mariano and his service. I would recommend any time and definitely would use again any time we are in the area aria

My parents had a wonderful day with you and your family. They felt so welcome
and safe and couldn't believe how much they could see in one day! You are
truly an expert at what you do. My mom and dad would love to have Julia and
Mia come meet your sons - hahaha - and to have Luke come to cook with you.
Matt will sing Italian opera. Maybe one day we will all be together with you
again as it is one of our great family memories.

Warmly - Andrea

Greetings Mariano,
Just a note to thank you again for the tremendous services you provided during our recent trip to Italy. The three days we spent with you were easily the highlights of our time in your beautiful country.
One of the main goals of our trip was to experience Italy as the Italians do rather than merely following a tour guide waving a towel on a stick.
Your knowledge, unique insight, humor, pride and professionalism made the days with you a total pleasure.
We would strongly encourage any visitor to Italy to take advantage of your services. Your ability to utilize a lifetime of knowledge to fine tune the experience for visitors is a talent that should not be missed.
Until we meet again...many thanks again.

What a delightful experience we shared with you, Priscilla, and Antonio as our guides!
Priscilla and Antonio chauffeured us from Rome to Sorrento with stops at Montecassino and Pompeii.Our entire journey was enhanced by the informative narrative provided by Priscilla and our safety assured by the confident driving of Antonio.
Mariano ferried us along the Amalfi Coast for an entire day. His knowledge, insight, and amazing driving skills were much appreciated. He is so very personable and made us feel so very welcome in his country. We loved hearing of his family life with two "generales" and his two sons Luigi and Rosario.
The care and concern that Mariano and his employees show towards each of their clients was very evident when Mariano drove us to the train station in Naples and never left our side as he escorted us on to the train with delicious pastries he thoughtfully provided.
We would not hesitate to recommend Mariano and his company as customer service is paramount to them.
Thank you, Mariano, Priscilla, and Antonio for providing us with the some of the most memorable moments of our trip to Italy!

Hello Mariano! Greetings! I hope and pray you and your family are well.
Forgive me for not getting in touch with you earlier than now. I actually don't know where the time has gone since our vacation to Italy. But I was going through my pictures and saw your smiling face and realized I hadn't yet connected with you to tell you and thank you for the wonderful tour you gave us. We so appreciate you making our time there so special by taking us to your farm, church, local restaurant and sending us home with delicious olive oil and wonderful memories. I snapped quite a few pictures and thought I'd send a couple of them to you. I'll also put them all on a picture site called 'shutterfly' and send that link to you once I have it set up.
Maybe someday we will meet up again. Know that you always have a place to stay if you come to the US.
Blessings to your and your family,
Corinne Melzer and Family

Mariano, thank you again for a wonderful day in the Amalfi Coast, Pompeii, Vesuvius, etc.! I'm so glad we could fit everything in. Thank you for giving us such a great sense of the area -- and for connecting us with Serena, our stellar Pompeii guide. Of course the fresh cheese was the icing on top! Thanks again. Robin
