From Tappan, New York

My wife and I used Joe Banana to get to various places around Italy, including Rome, Naples, and Positano. They were always right on time and excellent drivers, who were more than willing to humor our shaky Italian language skills and spoke mostly English. It was very hot and they always made sure we were comfortable in the air-conditioned cars, and drinking water. They also did a great job being flexible and coordinating with us by phone when, for instance, our train times changed. The real highlight of the trip was the Vesuvius, Pompeii, and winery tour. Our driver for the day, Luca Cozzolino, recommended we visit Vesuvius early, to beat the heat and the tourist rush, and boy was he right. After that we had an incredible tour of Pompeii with a private certified guide (which Joe B had also arranged), and a delicious lunch at a winery in the foothills of the volcano. To finish up, Luca dropped us off at our next destination, Positano. That day was the highlight of our whole trip, and we had Joe B and Luca to thank for that. We'd highly recommend them to anyone looking to take a lot of hassle out of their travel around Italy.

We just spent 11 wonderful days in Italy and JBL really made our trip special. Giovanni and Nunzio were wonderful drivers and guides. They were so flexible, made great suggestions, and were very entertaining. I have to say that Nunzio really connected with our family which just made things even more enjoyable. If we ever go back to Italy again we will certainly be using their services!

Joe Bananas were excellent from the start. Cindy was extremely helpful with planning the perfect itinerary for our time on the Amalfi Coast. Our driver Massimo was a fantastic tour guide and taught us about the region’s rich culture and history. He was understanding of our needs and went above and beyond to make it a holiday to remember, even offering to take photos and suggest restaurants. Thank you Massimo and Cindy! From Max and Sophie
