Why hire a private guide?
Our team of English-speaking drivers are most importantly qualified drivers & are very familiar with this area and everything local. They manage your tour, keeping you informed & entertained. They are not archeologists or historians, which is why we recommend specialist private guides for visits to excavation sites and museums. The patrimony of art in Italy is so vast that guides all over the country are licensed, when qualified by the government, to guide in excavation sites & museums. Hiring a guide gives you a marvelous opportunity to ask & learn so much more in Pompeii, Herculaneum & Paestum.
What about tipping ?
Tipping in Italy is discretionary. It's a thank you for a job well done. In the tourist industry in particular, it's expected. Calculate around 10-15 percent.
Will our driver stop off at shops on our tour ?
There are no obligatory shop stops included in our private tours unless specifically requested. In that case, should you wish your driver to take you shopping, then we are happy to do so. So much to choose from, you can purchase marvelous ceramics to inlaid wood, hand made sandals to leather handbags, not to mention Olive oils, wines & local specialities.
In Italy there are entrance fees charged for excavation sites, through to Museums, churches, private exhibitions, gardens & grottoes. We do not include entrance fees, as we no control over any increases/closures/strikes that may occur.
When travelling along the Amalfi Coast, always keep some change in your pocket, as you may decide to visit the Cathedral in Amalfi or perhaps Villa Cimbrone or Villa Rufalo in Ravello.
These visits are entirely optional, dependent on client's preference, fitness levels.
