Hello Mariano

We were part of Wendy Gardner's Regatta group last week on your wonderful tour of the Amalfi coast. We wanted to write and thank you for an amazing day....also we would like to thank your charming wife and lovely sister for their kind hospitality and delicious lunch. It was also a pleasure to meet your handsome son! We have told our children of your beautiful farm and how all the family live in harmony together and have done for hundreds of is truly inspirational and we thank you for allowing us a glimpse of your happy life.

Thank you so much for the wonderful experience during our cruise stop in Naples. The Amalfi and Pompeii regions were just beautiful. And because of your knowledge of the area and your willingness to share, this has been one of the most fulfilling vacations that we have ever taken.

A friend of ours is a travel agent and we will be sharing your contact information with her.

We'd also like to thank you for the tour guides in Civitavecchia and Livorna as well. Everything was spectacular. Thank you!

Well Mariano this email is really meant to thank you profoundly for your service. You know, when I first came across your company on the internet I was immediately taken by your introduction – it was so humble and honest that I knew immediately I’d made the right choice. Just by your emails giving advice about our itinerary it felt as though you had known us forever! We’ve been so lucky to have you drive us throughout the Costiera Amalfitana during most of the days of our nine day sojourn in Sorrento. The love and passion that you feel for the history and culture of your region shines through and the wealth of information that you provide is amazing. With you we were able to visit all those beautiful hotels, churches and towns that we would have otherwise missed. As for your choice of restaurants they were simply the best, tucked away in tiny streets but providing the most exquisite local food. “Patience is one of your many virtues and we are very grateful for that, especially in Naples where we unexpectedly had to find a particular establishment as an emergency. After that we were able to buy our Nativity figurines.” We felt so guilty because that day you got home later and yet you didn’t get upset at all, now that’s the mark of a true professional!

Definitely the highlight of our itinerary was the day you took us to meet your lovely wife and adorable son. Your farmhouse is so homely and what a treat to have your own vegetables, fruit and chickens. Your wife worked so hard to produce such a delicious and generous lunch. The dishes (all home-made) just kept on coming and although we were feeling full we couldn’t resist eating and drinking it all. She is such a sweet lady. I’d like to thank her again for opening her home to us as if we were family. If that wasn’t enough she graciously gave us those lovely bags as gifts. It’s clear that you are extremely fortunate to live in such a beautiful place surrounded by all your family.

Now, the time has come to give your poor eyes a rest (ha, ha!). If I ever need your services again in the future you can be certain I will contact you.

Once more my most sincere gratitude for everything you have done to make our holiday so special. The work that you carry out every day comes from the heart and it shows. You will be greatly rewarded in life, you deserve it.

Hi Mariano,

I am sorry it took us so long to write this note. First, Barbara and I join Mitchell and June's expressing thanks for your making our visit to Italy so much more special than we could have planned. One of the highlights of being with you was certainly seeing the majestic sights of so many villages and cultures of The Amalfi Region, the historical parts of southern Italy but I will forever relive the experience of feasting at and experiencing the Family Restaurant. You are a very kind gentleman, you are passionate about your country and how you treat your clients. You are very special.

Hello Mariano,
We have been back from our cruise to Italy for a few weeks now. I am finishing up my review to post on the Cruise Critic board. While in Pompeii, you got our group a tour guide and I forgot her name. She was excellent and I want to give her proper credit. I am enclosing a picture with her in it hoping you can send me her name. Thank you again for giving us the best tour we could possibly have of Naples, and the beautiful Amalfi Coast. We will reccomend your company to anyone wishing to experience the wonders of your country.
Warmest Regards,
Sue and Jim Kurovsky (Deb Schwabs group)

Ciao Mariano! We are now back home in our houses, with a minimum of problems or delays! Wanted to again thank you for taking such good care of Helen and was the highlight of our time in Italy...although I must say, Venice was hard to leave! We had an awesome time in Florence, Milan and Venice, before returning to Roma and our departure.

After you dropped off Helen and me in was a continued topic of conversation as to how much we missed you...your knowledge, your sense of humor, and your desire to make sure we had the best possible time in the Amalfi Coast area.

The first earthquake that hit north of Bologna shook my bed in Florence!

Thanks again, our good friend, for making our trip to Italy so special!

All the best, my good sir!

Hi Mariano,
One of the best vacation experiences that my wife and I have ever had was our personalized tour (3 couples) of the Amalfi Coast with our wonderful tour guide Mariano F. We spent a very special day leisurely traveling along the coast and through beautiful towns. Our guide knew exactly how to maximize this experience for all of us. Courteous driving, knowledge of the area, great tips on shopping,picture taking, and restaurants, all helped make this an unforgettable trip. It all culminated with a wonderful visit to his home and a chance to meet his family. It was precisely what we had envisioned for a perfect day in Italy!!

Ciao Mariano,

We were just thinking about you and remembering what a wonderful time you showed us in Italy recently. Without you as our guide we would not have had such a fulfilling vacation. We are still trying to get all of our pictures organized and when we are finished we will send you some of the pictures we took with you.

We have given your business card to our travel agent and told her what a wonderful guide and person you are. We will certainly never forget you.

We hope all is well with you and your family.

Thank you so much for everything.

I want to thank you so very much for such a wonderful personalized tour of the villages of the Sorrnetine peninsula and some of the Amalfi Coast and Sorrento! Everything was wonderful and I will be adding photos and mention you in my blog! As soon as I edit the photos I will email them to you in case you want to use them on your website! Mille grazie for a wonderful day and a special thank you for the freshest mozzarella!

Ciao Mariano,

We have settled in back home after 2 wonderful weeks in Italy….first, the Amalfi Coast, then Tuscany. We could not have been happier with the tours you provided, and we are still raving about the fabulous lunch you arranged at a Family Restaurant along the Amalfi coast. We also visited the restaurant in San Gimignano that you had recommended, and had a great lunch. We told Nicola that you had sent us, and gave him your best wishes. In fact, every restaurant that you recommended was excellent. We enjoyed Tuscany a lot, but the time we spent with you on the Amalfi coast was fantastic. You really helped make our trip a memorable experience! June and I, along with the Goodmans, send our warmest regards, and we will keep your father in our prayers. Thanks again for EVERYTHING!!!

Mariano - Thank you so much for your wonderful tour last week. You were so informative and flexible! We loved the fresh mozzarella cheese! We also appreciate that you took my husband and me back up to Sorrento, after dropping off the rest of our group at the port. The restaurant that you recommended was incredible! We will recommend you to anyone traveling in the area. Thank you for your extraordinary service and insight! You were awesome!

Mariano: Your team is the best team I have travelled with as a tour company in the whole world! Your knowledge of the area, your knowledge of the history, and MOST IMPORTANTLY the way you make us feel like family will be extremely difficult to surpass. Thank you very much for making our visit the best one we have had in a long time. we will never forget you.

And we will take you up on the restaurant business!

Hi Mariano, Just want to thank you and Angelo for our wonderful trip to Pacentro. It was everything we hoped for and Angleo was a great help to us. We appreciated his promptness picking us up, his help in Pacentro and his explanation of the countryside as we traveled from Rome to the my ancestors village. It was the highlight of our trip to Rome. You can be sure we will use your services again if we ever get to come back to Italy. Thank you for everything.

Ciao Mariano,

This is a long time coming! Remember our trip to Amalfi in June? Your tour of Amalfi was the icing on the cake of an 11 day tour through Italy. You knew exactly where to take us and you knew everyone along the way. Your enthusiasm for what you do makes you very special in addition to your knowledge of the Amalfi Coast and the surrounding area. I have told everyone I know that if they ever get to Italy YOU must be the one to show them the sights. Italy has captured my heart for the second time. I look forward to when we will meet again.

Arrivederci, buona salute e felicità!

Hi Mariano- I meant to send little thank you for our tour of the Amalfi coast. We have not been home much...a wedding in New York City right after our cruise. Now we are back in Canada for a while. We thoroughly enjoyed your tour. Seeing all the sights and the photo stops were great. Observing Amalfi and Positano, especially from the heights we travelled, was breathtaking. Your lunch choice in Sorrento had a beautiful view and you made sure the service was economical and prompt. Thank you. Your choice of tour guide through Pompeii was excellent. We have already recommended your company to one other person travelling in the future and we will share your name and email with all who wish it. A past guest of yours recommended you to us and I am glad that we listened and took their advice. Continued successin your business and may lots of customers come your way. Nora Jones.

Dear Mariano
We had Antonio and Priscilla for our day excursion on the Naples port day. We went to Amalfi Coast, had a fantastic lunch ( best pasta for the whole trip) and did Herculaneum on the way home. Priscilla was brilliant! The whole day was easy for us as they took care of all the details and the four of us really had a great day!
I was a little concerned as I had booked the excursion over the net from Australia before we left and as we disembarked off the ship I had the horrible feeling of "what if they aren't there". I was delighted to see Antonio standing with our name as we got off the ship! They are extremely professional and really did a fantastic job of making us feel relaxed and got the most out of the day
Thank you so much
Brett, Janine, Olivia and Ethan

Dear Mariano,
Thank you so much for a great day at Herculaneum and Amalfi Coast. We had Antonio and Priscilla who were fantastic, professional, and took us to an out of the way restaurant. for the best lunch we had in our entire time in Italy. They were on the dock to meet us early, the van was lovely and comfortable and all their knowledge of the area was brilliant. I could recommend them more highly for your tour out of Naples.

Hi Mariano,
We had a wonderful day in Casino and Caserta with Antonio and Priscilla who spent ten hours with us and took care of us in every way possible. They took particular care of my 84 year old mother who enjoyed the whole day immensely. They were very informative about the places and brought the battle of Casino to life for us. They also helped to make the visit to Caserta ultra-special. The tour was worth every penny and it was a bargain. We hope to be back in Sorrento soon and will be booking trips to Naples with you. Thank you again for making our life-long dreams of seeing these places come true.

Dear Mariano
I wanted to thank you once again for all the work you did to arrange our tours in Florence and Rome for our group. Both drivers you provided were very courteous, friendly and very knowledgeable.
You were a joy to spend the day with while touring the Amalfi Coast. You are such a pleasant and friendly man, it was a pleasure and honor to learn so much about your area of Italy. The restaurant you arranged for lunch was the absolute best meal we had during our whole vacation, everything served was delicious, including their wine.
I hope to return some day and stay longer in that area, we will be sure to call on you if we get to do so.
I wish you and your family well,

Hi Mariano,

I just wanted to thank-you for the absolutely fantastic tour we had of Sorrento, Positano, the Amalfi coast, etc. Our driver, Antonio and Priscilla, our guide, made this the absolute best tour we had during our vacation. They made the tour a personal excursion and our group of 7 felt like we were among friends the entire day. Lunch was terrific, and the lemon ice that Antonio treated us with in the afternoon was an exceptional touch. Having lived in the area for many years, Priscilla knew exactly where to take us and even where to shop for particular items. It was by far the best day we had. I will most definitely recommend your company to others. In fact, 2 of our group will be returning to Italy next spring and are already looking forward to hopefully taking your tour again. Again, thank-you for a fabulous day.
