Tuscany is the region of a thousand discoveries: book a day tour dedicated to beauty, wine and excellent food in Val d'Orcia: Montepulciano, Pienza and Montalcino are waiting for you!

We reach Montepulciano and head to the discovery of the town center, which, as often happens for the towns enclosed by walls, is very quiet with the classic characteristics of the medieval village.

The wine cellars of this locality are really famous and they follow one another along the main street of the town, alternate with small shops of ancient crafts, which have remained uncontaminated over time: from the gentleman who works the copper to the one who works the glass.

We head to another village that always has its roots in the Val d’Orcia: Pienza.

Pienza is very famous for the production of cheese. When you will arrive you will be inebriated by the scent, which never leaves the area. Part of the significant historical and artistic heritage of Pienza is concentrated in the suggestive square dedicated to Pope Pius II, UNESCO heritage.

Within the walls of this village, wonderful Renaissance buildings alternate with shops specializing in the sale of local cheese, in the more or less seasoned, more or less tasty version.

Take some time to breathe the special medieval atmosphere of the magnificent Tuscan village of Montalcino, which has remained almost intact since the 16th century. Once you reach the top, a real spectacle opens up before your eyes: a continuous succession of sinuous hills dotted here and there with yellow and red flowers, ancient oaks, picturesque olive trees, panoramic roads of countryside winding through harmonious vineyards and isolated cypresses here and there.

The city has become rich and famous thanks to Brunello, one of the best Italian wines and one of the most popular in the world. The village was already renowned for its red wines in the fifteenth century. 

At the end of the tour you will visit one of the historic wine cellars of the Tuscan countryside, one of the most renowned wine regions in Italy. You will have the chance to sip the wine varieties during the guided tasting, and bring the full flavor of the wines to life with a light gourmet Tuscan lunch.

Val d’Orcia remains in your heart.

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.

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

Our driver/guide Antonio went out of his way all day long, to make this the ultimate day for us along the Amalfi Coast. He should be in the Hall of Fame for guides. He explained so much and listened to what we like, so he could make it the best day possible. He was waiting for us at the agreed upon time at the cruise pier in Naples. We went straight to Positano to beat the traffic. We had about an hour to stroll around. Next, he took us to the ceramic factory that makes most of what you see in most of the shops along the Amalfi coast. I believe it was called Picadilly. The factory and shop are dug into a cliff along the famous windy road along the coast. The prices and selection were fantastic. Not sure how I got all those treasures home. Next was a brief stop in Amalfi. I had been there before and it is the least interesting of the lovely places along the coast, but worth the brief 20 minute stop. We next proceeded to Ravello. Antonio asked us if we wanted to go to a tourist place or a place the locals go. We choose local. Grandma herself waits on you. What a sweetheart. Her parents opened the restaurant in 1929 and continued til their 90s, when she took over. The food was authentic, as was the little no charge extra,salad, a little dessert and a big pinch on your cheek (face)! We then had about an hour to stroll around before heading back to the ship. Bravo to Antonio and thanks to Rosella, the office manager, who arranged our tours in Naples and Civitavecchia! We lad a lovely day!

We completely appreciated the great professional, reliable service of Joe Banana Limos. Our driver Massimo was absolutely wonderful to us - he is very professional and knowledgeable of the area. Drove smoothly along the winding Amalfi coast roads, knows what spots provide amazing lookouts away from the tour groups, and we learned so much more about the area than we would have otherwise. We had 3 separate trips booked with Massimo, his recommendations were excellent and were highlights of time in Italy. Highly recommend Joe Banana and Massimo in particular!

his is the 3rd time we have used Joe Bananas and we were again blown away by their service. We had just one day this time in Rome and were with people who had never been so we knew we had to do the usual Vatican, Colosseum, Trevi fountain etc which we did not mind. But in comes Jose!!! Jose is without a doubt the best kept secret of Rome, as he said "you've not seen Rome until you've done it the Jose way"!! We did get to see all the usual sights but he took us to some total surprises too. Not going to give it away but if you go to Rome and want to see the real Rome from every wonderful vantage point, book Joe Bananas and ask for Jose! Mention to him that you read this review and ask him to take you to the keyhole!! It blew me away!!

Once again, we used Joe Banana Limos for our all-day excursion to the Cinque Terre from the port of Livorno. Our driver was right there when we exited the ship and quickly whisked us up to the first of the 5 towns. He provided excellent information on how to navigate getting from town to town. The day was perfectly timed and we were back to the ship with plenty of time to spare. I highly recommend Joe Banana for excellent service and great drivers/guides. Thank you .,.. and see you next year!

My family and recently finished another amazing trip to Italy. We did and extensive day of touring with our private guide, Paolo! (whom i may add is now more a friend of the family). He spent almost 12 hrs taking us to Pompeii, Herculaneam, limoncello factory, lunch and a climb up Vesuvius. Amazing man, amazing day. i will forever think of him when I have ice cream brioche!

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.
