We started in Sorrento and made our way to Pompeii and Mt Vesuvius. Our tour guides, Paolo and Luigi were welcoming, knowledgeable, and funny. They accommodated all of our needs, allowed us to customize the tour on the spot, gave us plenty of time to wander around Pompeii, and made sure we had a great lunch all before hiking the mighty Mt Vesuvius. They were so great we booked with them twice after! Love this company.

We were on a 9 day Crystal cruise and our day in Sorrento was the best! Massimo was our driver for the day and did an amazing job! He was so friendly and fun to be with. He spoke amazing english and kept us laughing and informed the entire time. We were able to visit Pompeii, Positano, had an incredible lunch, and he even stopped at a local olive oil factory for a personal tour and tasting. Can't emphasize how great the day was and Massimo made it happen. Thanks!!

A great day with our guide Luigi experiencing all the amazing Rome sites. We fit a lot in. Luigi was very knowledgeable; drove us up to each stop and gave us information and history. He made sure we were happy and tailored our day based on our needs. There were 8 of us, four adults and four kids (ages 11-14). We all had a fantastic time learning about Rome and awed by the sheer amount of history in that city. Greatly recommend Joe Banana and Luigi

We toured with Joe Banana Tours on our Mediterranean Cruise. We were picked up from the dock at 8 AM and the driver had a sign with our name on it. From there we headed to Pisa to see the sights for about an hour. We had the option to climb the tower while there. From Pisa we stopped in Greve in Chianti, a little Tuscan town to sightsee for a little while before heading to Fattoria Montecchio for the vineyard and olive oil tour, tastings and lunch. There was a 35 Euro per person charge for the tour, tastings, and lunch that we had to pay when we got there. If interested, you can buy wines and olive oils and they will ship them home to you so you don't have to worry about getting them back on the ship and planes. We then stopped and visited San Gimignano for some more sightseeing before heading back to the ship. All in all it was a wonderful tour through some lovely villages and countryside and maybe our most favorite tour of the cruise.

We had such a wonderful day with our tour guide Oliver on our tour of Pisa, Florence. He picked us up promptly at the port, and we visited Pisa for about an hour. We then had about 1.5 hours in Florence to take photos and walk around. Tuscany was beautiful, and the afternoon was relaxed and lovely. Oliver was an amazing guide, and had so much knowledge about the area. We have two children, and he welcomed and engaged them throughout the trip. At one point we had to wait a bit for the rest of our group to join us, and he did magic tricks for my youngest daughter to keep her occupied. This tour was our favorite of the five we had booked with different companies in Italy and Spain. Highly, highly recommend this company, and ask for Oliver if you are in Florence.

My wife and I would like to thank JB Limo for our extensive 21 day tour thru Italy from Amalfi coast to Venice. Rossella was a delight to work with as we planned our vacation. With our input, she designed our entire trip from hotels, individual stops, guides, and private driver. Thanks to Rossella's planning and Luca, our private driver, the experience was magical and stress free. They made sure everything went smoothly every step of the way and handled any unanticipated issues that arose. The guides provided were exceptional. A few worthy of mention were Paolo in Pompeii, Herculaneum, and Capri; Rita in Rome; Francesca in Florence; Christian in Cinque Terre; Esther in Milan; and Igor in Venice. A few of the highlights included the private boat excursion down the Amalfi coast, private boat to Capri and our visit to Osteria di Passignano winery in Tuscany which included one of our favorite meals. This is our third time using JB Limo services when visiting Italy and they have always exceeded our expectations. We highly recommend their services.
