Competencies

When you book a SHORE EXURSION or a PRIVATE TOUR or a TRANSFER TOUR, a driver-guide (fluent English speaking driver-guide) will be provided.

Driver-guides will be able to provide running commentary of the territory, be knowledgeable about museums, churches, and other attractions.

For TRANSFERS we are only able to guarantee a licensed driver with basic English skills. We thus cannot guarantee the same experience as with a driver-guide.

We would like to point out that driver-guides are not allowed by Italian law to accompany you or act as a tour guide in any way once you exit the vehicle as a special license is required. If you desire a tour guide, please indicate this request in the “Additional Info or Special Requests” section of the contact module.
