Default Private Tour Companies In Europe?

Kuki, Paul or anyone with experience, please give me the names (e-mail info) of a good CruiseMates tested private tour company for Rome, and Florence/ Pisa. Thanks very much. Mike

Mike,

I have used Manilo Tranquilli with Limousine Service Rome. He gave us a wonderful private tour in Rome. Pick up and return to the ship plus an extensive tour of Rome. It was nice that we were able to tailor the tour to what we wanted to see.

There are many other tour companies that provide excellent service but Manilo was very good and the one I have personal experience with.

Take care,
Mike

Mike, check out Romeinlimo. We used them in Rome, and wished we had used them for Florence/Pisa, as well. They were great!

For our Florence/Pisa port, we used Driverinitaly. Our river was good, but I think we just had an excellent driver with Romeinlimo. If romeinlimo is not available, use driverinitaly.

Quit messing around! Get something booked!

Cool Private Tours In Rome

Our first choice and is difficult to get is Claudio@romoinlimo .. We did Tuscany with him.. Just recently we used them and had Salvatore for Rome and another for Cinque Terre... We were able to do part of Florence too.. Great drivers, huge clean vans.. and interesting enough...every couple at the end of the tour received a bottle of wine..It's true.. we were able to customize our tours

Mike, here are the web sites for the 2 companies that we used:

romeinlimo.com

driveryinitaly.com

Both were very good about responding to questions, via e-mail.

MikeM, I received a quote from drivein italy and it seems high. About $3000. for 4 people for Rome and Florence. I tried to send a quote to your guy but the e-mail address won't work. Please check it out and resend and tell what you think of this quote. He wants ttotal amount when I book and I pay all the entry fees including the guide. I pay for lunch etc. This is almost twice what we paid in St. Petersburg for two days. Thanks, Mike
