Good morning Brian and Pam,
I wanted to get a quick note off to each of you to, first of all, thank you for helping to arrange an amazing trip!
This is one for the books, we had a fabulous time thanks to you and your hard work. and secondly to tell you that it is always a pleasure to work with you both.

I had promised to share with you some of our experiences with regards to the tour operators used in Florence, Rome and Naples.
For Florence, Rome and Naples we used a company by the name of Pleasent Travel, run by Mariano Fiorentino.
In Rome his colleague was Paulo whose knowledge of the city was amazing, he knew all the right sites to see their history and the right time to beat the crowds.

In Rome we had Angelo, again a true professional, with all the credentials you would hope for in a tour operator. He suggested we have a guide for the Sistine Chapel, and we're happy he did. With lines of 2 1/2 to 3 hours we were in in no time. When time is important that's the kind of guide you need.

And, Mariano, what a pleasure!! Very easy going, knowledgeable, personable, and the consummate professional. His tour along the Amalfi Coast was amazing, knowing just where to stop, what to see and where to eat really made the day one for the books.

Aside from their professionalism, the were punctual, knowledgeable, flexible and just plain friendly.

This is a trip that was nothing short of amazing, and these people mad it so!!

Mariano since we spent the day together, I consider you my friend! I hope that we can keep in contact with each other.
And, if there is ever anything I can do for you, please let me know.
Warmest personal regards,
Bill Dugan

Mariano, I just want to thank you for our group tour from Naples to the Amalfi coast recently. Our group was two 8 seater vans off of the Equinox. We had a wonderful tour and a great day. Thank you for the fabulous luncheon at the farm, this was a highlight for everyone, and for your suggestions and tour guide in Pompeii. I have already recommended you and your company to other Cruise Critic members and I will be posting a positive review on Tripadvisor.
Thank you again for making this day a special one.

Dear Mariano,
You made our trip so spectacular there. We could not have asked for a better guide! You were so informative, friendly, and in tune with what we wanted. Thank you Mariano for letting us see your farm and home. Thank your wife too for letting us be a part of the family. We loved the time spent sharing wine and bread at your dining room table. We loved eating at the restaurant along the Amalfi coast too. Such a good feeling it was to eat authentic Italian food and it was magnifico! We had so many souvenirs that we could hardly carry it all home. I would highly recommend you to anyone thinking of coming there. You are simply the best and I can't wait to return. The scenery was breathtaking and you covered it from Sorrento, Positano, Amalfi, Ravello, and in between. Thank you from all of us as I know everyone in our group feels the same way. I am sending you some pictures we took there. That's Amore!

Mariano: Thank you so much for all your efforts to make our trip in Sorrento In May 2013 a great success. To all people researching a trip to " anywhere in Italy" for any length of time look no further. You won't find a more experienced friendly, caring ,devoted guide, who speaks excellent English, anywhere in Italy. I planned our trip over 12 months in advance for a group of six for 4 days. All e-mails were answered immediately and with great detail.I have traveled through out Europe and will say Mariano Florentino is the best guide I have encountered. When you are searching for a guide you always look for someone you can trust, is reasonably priced, and will go out of his way to please. With 30+ years experience you can't go wrong with Mariano Contact him Jerry Cornell

Mariano......Having just finished editing all my pictures and enjoying again our time with you on Amalfi coast, I had to take a moment and thank you again for an excellent tour in your part of Italy! I have to say I was concerned about those infamous roads of the Amalfi and “Italian “ drivers [having been there before!!!!!!] before we came......BUT..... your excellent driving [and urge to keep the new Mercedes unscratchedRolling on the floor laughing????Open-mouthed smile], gave me never a moment’s concern! It was just to short a much to see and do. I will ALWAYS remember your navigating us through the mob to the gates of Caserta when they had the 2 hour strike of the ticker takers! We would never have gotten in without you....OR.....figured out how to get tickets once we did get in......even getting through the turnstile was a challenge!

Thank you again for all your thoughtfulness to us...including a memorable visit to your home and meeting your wife! We will long remember the warm hospitality!

Good luck to you and your family!

I would like to thank Mariano Fiorentino for the marvelous tour he provided for us in November of the Amalfi coast and Pompeii. We would never had the insight to the marvelous area if not for him. Mariano is a wonderful tour guide and I would highly recommend him for any tour of Italy. He has great insight and to the history of the beautiful country of Italy. Thank you again.

Ciao Mariano,

I'm sorry it took me so long to write to you but I just got out of the hospital after surgery. I wanted to tell you that the tour of the Amalfi Coast you gave us was the highlight of our vacation for all of us. We can't express how much we enjoyed the day, the food, the information and the beauty of the Amalfi Coast and the time and care you took to present it to us in the most extraordinary way. The restaurant you took us to was wonderful,and everyone is still talking about it. Some of our people are connoisseurs of Italian food and great cooks themselves and they are also still talking about the great food, great owners and beautiful view. It is a little scary to book on the internet, but you and your sister-in-law turned out to be so much more thank we expected that I just had to write to tell you that you were exceptional and we will certainly contact you again if we are ever in the area.

Thank you again.
Maria Russo and 11 friends from USA (Oct 18, 2012)

We apologize for the delay in sending our thanks to you for a most fabulous and fascinating tour you gave us of the Amalfi Coast area on October 3. Your energy, vast knowledge and deep love for this area and of your home country was very evident to all of us through our entire tour. A photo you took of us with your dear friend ( we are sorry to say we can not recall his name) showed us what a loving and caring heart you have as well! We all were deeply moved to meet him and to have our photo taken with him. Our tour was truly one filled with many, many wonderful memories of the people and the land. You are a remarkable guide and all of us will pass on your name to others who plan on visiting Italy.

Un grazie di cuore a voi per l'incredibile tour.
Molto Grazie!

Hello Mariano

Settled back home now since Saturday afternoon. Laundry done and grass cut!!
Just wanted to thank you for a great day in Naples. Priscilla was a great guide and very informative and Antonio a very safe driver. I did apologise to her for our American friend who was rather abrupt with her towards the end of the day. I am afraid she was not appreciative of the history of the area. We Brits loved it all and I look forward to a repeat visit one day. I will write you a good review on Cruise Critic when I get myself organised.

Thank you very much for the Limoncello and the lovely bag. Very kind of you and much appreciated.

Best wishes

The most amazing day of our 9 day trip! Thanks to our guide Pricilla and driver Antonio we had the best day of our entire trip when we took a private tour of Sorrento, the Amalfi coast and Pompeii. We talked with a lot of people when we got back on the cruise ship and NO ONE had the day we did. We were able to see the sights of all the towns along the Amalfi coast, eat an authentic meal with some of the best food I have ever eaten and see the ruins of Pompeii all in one day. Pricilla was so friendly and knowledgable! Very professional with no fear of missing the ship. I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS TOUR!

Ciao Mariano,
I hope all is well with you. I just wanted to tell you again our thanks for a wonderful Amalfi Coast trip you provided the eight of us. We had such an incredible time and it absolutely was the best part of the cruise! You were a big part of the reason it was so much fun and memorable. Your narration of the Amalfi Coast was fantastic, and the other things you taught us about Italy from how they came up with the first pizza as "pizza for the pour" and the Margaritha pizza too. You really did go out of your way to make it a very memorable day and I just wanted to pass on my thanks again from all of us for a fantastic tour. We will go on-line to and write a letter for you. The pictures came out fantastic especially you with the Italian girl on the motorcycle shooting a commercial.:) We have so many memorable pictures of the coast Sorrento, Postitano, Priano, and Ravello so thank you!

Hi Mariano,

You were the highlight of our family trip to Italy a couple weeks ago. Your drive along the Amalfi Coast and your wealth of information and your kindness made our trip a family trip of a lifetime. I loved seeing where you lived, your family's farm, and of course the lemon ice! I have passed your card on to friends and if I ever get back to Italy (which I sincerely hope I do) you will be the first person I contact!!!! Thank you!!!!!!!!
Here's a few pictures for you! (ah -- and you are also an excellent photographer!!!)

In September 2012 we have made a cruise visiting the cities of Naples, Rome and Firenze. In each city we were received by representives of Pleasantravel at the dock of our cruise ship. The car was every time a very comfartable salon Mercedes or a mini-van (with reason in Naples). The drivers were all good English speaking and well informed about the sights in the cities.
In all: good quality for a very reasonable price and recommendable to everyone.
