Reviews of our clients
“Fantastic, Fun, Organized, On Time”
How many more superlatives can I add to this review? My friend and I have been traveling together for over 22 years, mostly in Europe and on our own. This time my friend researched and booked Rosato Tours for a day on the Amalfi Coast. After some reconsideration, she emailed Vittorio to ask about a pickup at the Napoli train station and later still about Pompeii and Herculaneum. Vittorio replied quickly and in the affirmative.
I am so very glad that we did this. Our initial driver made us feel welcome, fussed over us like family members, gave us recommendations for food and (most importantly) gelato. The following day we spent with another driver, a handsome young man who took us to Pompeii and Herculaneum. We were given a choice for a lunch stop and chose a lovely winery on the slopes on the slopes of Pompeii where we had an excellent meal before continuing our day.
For our tour of the Amalfi Coast, Vittorio himself drove us. He is handsome and personable, professional and fun. His recommendation for lunch brought us to an unbelievable little restaurant, perched at the edge of a cliff overlooking Sophia Loren's villa. Our time in Ravello, Amalfi and Positano was just right. He also gave us recommendations for several places in our home base of Sorrento and picked us up himself for our trip back to the train station.
The prices are reasonable by the standards of two women who can do 16 days in Europe on a budget that would make your head spin. (We are walkers, train takers, apartment dwellers.) The service is excellent. The location is perfect and the team marvelous.

“Vittorio is the BEST! Experience the real Italy, as curated by a knowledgeable local.”
When we travel, we love to be connected with local people so we can avoid the typical tourist traps and have a more authentic experience. Vittorio Rosato went far beyond our expectations to do this.
Vittorio replied rapidly and thoroughly to my emails when I was planning our trip. He is the owner of the business and the comfortable and elegant Mercedes vans. He has other drivers, but we were lucky to spend all our time with him. He was born and raised in Sorrento, but loves to see the world and so has extensive travel experience himself. This puts him in a unique position to present genuine and enjoyable aspects of the local area that will appeal to visitors.
He is a very safe driver, and navigates the narrow and winding streets with ease, much more easily than we would ever have been able to do on our own. He picked us up in person from the Naples train station, and took us to Pompeii and Herculaneum, where we learned so much about these fascinating places from an excellent certified guide.
We also went on a day-long tour of the Amalfi Coast, visiting Positano, Amalfi, and Ravello while Vittorio described all the towns we passed and stopped to take our photos in particularly scenic spots. He recommended an excellent place for lunch and which villas to visit in cliff-top Ravello. After a sublime day, we returned to Sorrento and grabbed a scrumptious gelato.
The gastronomic tour arranged by Vittorio was one of the highlights of our trip! We visited a family-owned olive oil factory and enjoyed a delicious tasting of their wide variety of olive oils and balsamic products. We then went on to a wine tasting with a local family of winemakers, pizza making at the best pizzeria, and cheesemaking with a local dairy farmer and award-winning cheesemaker. We wrapped up the day with a gelato class! We weren't able to visit the limoncello factory as planned, but we were relieved since we were already beyond stuffed!
We were sad to leave Vittorio and lovely Sorrento. He treated us like we were his family, and that's how we feel about him. We can't wait to return to this beautiful place for more adventures.

“Awesome tour of the Amalfi Coast”
My family booked a private tour with Vittorio along the Amalfi Coast and it was one of the highlights of our trip. Even though it a while ago, we continue to talk about all the amazing experiences we had while travelling with Vittorio. From door side service at the Naples train station, to the beautiful views along the coast, to one of the best meal we had in all of Italy at “Mama’s Place”, to our destination in Sorrento, everything was perfect.
Vittorio is a true professional and his van was impeccable. His knowledge of the area was great and knew all the best ways around the area to avoid traffic and large tour groups.
We can’t wait to visit Italy again and I would only tour with the professional expert Vittorio when in the Naples/Sorrento area!
