Claudio is amazing!! I sent him to pick up my parents in Florence and drive them to meet me in Siena. They speak 0 Italian and were nervous about navigating around but Claudio made them feel so at ease. His English is perfect and he is the friendliest driver to introduce my family to the beauty and wonder that is Tuscany. He drove them back to Florence at the end of their trip and me back to Florence at the end of my trip as well. I couldn’t have asked for a more hospitable, helpful, and entertaining driver to make my experience so comfortable!
Claudio!! We are missing Italy and the great services you provided. We are looking forward to our next visit and of course we would only select the very BEST! Thank you for making our trip so comfortable and your attention to detail was priceless!!!!!
The relationship with Claudio began for us months in advance as we were planning our trip – he was quite patient with my email requests, changing my mind and last minute suggestions. He crafted our trip – tailored it to our group’s needs, idiosyncrasies, and limitations. One of our members was limited in mobility and he provided a wheelchair to accommodate her and chauffeured her around while the rest of us were touring by foot or bike. The teenagers and adults were thrilled with the daily plans for taste tours in Florence and Tuscany; a cooking class in Tuscany; olive oil producer, sheep farm that produced milk, Cinta de Sinese tour – who knew there was a breed of ancient pig whose “lardo” (bacon fat) is rich in omega 3 and 6! It’s actually healthy to eat this bacon! Nirvana. The restaurants we dined in were each special in their own way and reflected the region we were in.
Claudio is the perfect ambassador of Italy for English speaking tourists – with a wonderful sense of humor and impeccable choices for us, and traveling around in a Mercedes Sprinter was not too shabby either. We recommend him without any reservations, and really hope others considering a trip to Italy consider engaging his “Italian Style”. We will surely return…we rubbed the boar’s nose in Florence, so we are guaranteed to.
We loved our experience with Claudio! Last June we were in the Sienna area for a wedding and spent a day touring the countryside with Claudio. From the beginning to the end, it was a day to remember! He picked us up for 3 stops in wine regions, complete with stories and info about his life and travels throughout the trip. Whether it was stopping for an espresso, a fantastic lunch in an old wine cellar, and a stop at his friends olive/wine estate, we’ll never forget out day we spent together in Tuscany. We would definitely look for Claudio the next time we’re in Italy and plan to recommend him to friends as well!
I cannot say enough wonderful things about Claudio and his services. He arranged for a wonderful two weeks in Italy for our group of four that far exceeded all of our expectations. From the moment he met us at the airport in Rome, we knew we were in good hands. He had listened to our requests, knew our interests and had planned the perfect itinerary for our group. We did a variety of things including a Tasting Tour of Naples, private boat ride and tour of Capri followed by a hands on limoncello prep and sampling and a private cooking class and meal in a beautiful villa in Capri. We had wine tastings, a trip to an organic state of the art buffalo farm where delicious mozzarella is made and sampled, educational and fascinating tours of Pompeii, the Sistine Chapel, St. Peter’s Basilica, Assisi, the Amalfi Coast and numerous other sites. We went on a bike ride on the Appian Way where we shared the road with goats, stopped for a respite of freshly baked bread, cheese and wine and visited catacombs. Every guide was an expert in their area and provided us with the historical significance of each place we visited and answered all of our questions in a clear, friendly and interesting manner. One took us to her hometown of Nemi where we visited local merchants, sampled their products and felt like locals, an experience hard to duplicate with large groups and less experienced guides. Claudio even arranged for a trip to the small town of Portici, the ancestral home of my husband. Claudio acted as our private concierge and provided us with hotels, restaurant suggestions and reservations, shopping locations and whatever else we requested. We all would highly recommend Claudio and his services if you are planning a trip to Italy.
Jennifer, Bill, thank You so much!!
Claudio was fantastic! We were recommended Claudio from some friends of ours (see Jon Dienstag’s comments above) and he surpassed our expectations and their lofty description of the time they spent together. He was incredibly knowledgeable about the region and took us on a great tour of Montepulciano, La Pienza, and Chianciano with stops at beautiful wine cellars, a cheese tasting, and even a local pig farm. I’m eager to pay forward the recommendation to friends we have traveling in the region and look forward to seeing Claudio again on our next trip to Tuscany.
Claudio’s expertise, impeccable planning and top notch customer service made our trip to Italy spectacular! We highly recommend Italian Style. After a short trip to Germany, we visited the Amalfi Coast for four nights and then Rome for three nights, stopping in Pompeii on the way. Hotel Santacaterina in Amalfi was a truly memorable stay with breathtaking views and fabulous service. Claudio arranged everything from the moment we landed in Naples. He arranged for a driver to pick us up and take us to Amalfi and our driver gave us a great history lesson of each area that we passed through along the way. Claudio arranged for a driver to take us to Rome with a stop in Pompeii for a private tour. Our guide was exceptional! The tickets for all of the sites that we wanted to visit in Rome were with our guide and driver as they picked us up each day and we got right in without waiting in all of the very long lines. A huge bonus right there! Claudio drove in from Tuscany one evening just to meet us in person. We felt truly honored because we knew how busy he was with his company in the month of June! The Bifferato family recommended Claudio to us when we first started out on planning this trip. Having never been to Italy, Claudio listened very carefully to what we did and didn’t want to do and planned a truly memorable trip. We will definitely be back. Thank you Claudio! You are one of a kind.
Thanks a lot Elaine! Hope to see you soon!!
Claudio planned our itinerary for 10 with perfection and patience! Our group wasn’t easy to work with because not everyone wanted to move at the same pace or do the same activities so we had different numbers participating for different activities. Claudio gave us a proposal including prices and people could pick and choose their activities which made my life much easier! In the end, we ended up with a very well rounded itinerary including Orvieto, wine tours, bike tour with lunch at a farm, cooking class at Ferragamo, Siena and Assisi. All of Claudio’s guides were amazing especially in Assisi. Claudio has a large sprinter van which was comfortable for transporting our group. If he uses other drivers, they might not have that van so if you want it, make sure to specify when organizing your trip. Claudio fit right into our group making it feel like we had an 11th friend with us. Claudio’s planning turned our trip into an amazing experience.
My husband and I cannot thank Claudio enough for all he did to help make our trip memorable and truly unforgettable. Claudio worked quickly and tirelessly to meet all of our requests for the things we wanted to include on our trip. He set us up with unique and fun food tours and all of the guides he connected us with were knowledgeable and friendly. The boat tour he set us up with in Amalfi was one of our favorite parts of the trip. Our drivers were courteous and prompt. We couldn’t be happier with all of the services Claudio provided us with while we were in Italy. We are so happy that we were connected with Claudio because our trip would not have been the same without all his help and hard work. We cannot recommend him enough!
Claudio and his operation is total class. He’s knowledgeable, friendly, always helpful and at ease dealing with people of all ages and backgrounds. He’s a patient, careful driver and always arrives on time. He took us to some truly memorable places where there were few or no other tourists around and seems to know just about everyone on a first-name basis. When there’s a bit of extra time, he suggests a quick detour to see something else, which shows not only his dedication to making sure people make the most of their time but also shows how much he really enjoys what he does. That makes all the difference, really. I am struggling to think of how he could have improved anything about the parts of our trip he arranged so professionally other than providing some magic switch to turn down the outside temperature a few notches! Mille grazie, Claudio.
