AMAZING REVIEW FROM A LOCAL B&B OWNER!!!
IFI COULD GIVE TEN STARS I WOULD!!!
I wrote this review in June 2016 for a guide we hired in Positano based on his reviews... we never knew he would become family!
This week - when Italy opened and my girls returned to Italy from the USA for the first time in a year and a half... we had to go see our good friend Tony in Positano... If you want to see Positano and The Amalfi Coast thru a locals eyes - Positano Tonytaxi is the perfect guide for you!
“We thought we booked a tour guide with a car… How wrong we were! We arrived as clients and left as family.
I had reached out to Tony about 6 months before our trip after reading glowing reviews on Trip Advisor about Tony and his services. We exchanged dozens and dozens of emails as our one day excursion turned into 4 days with Tony picking up my husband and I in Rome and returning us to Naples at the end of our time in his Magical City of Positano and The Amalfi Coast. We arrived in Rome to be greeted by the warmest face and biggest smile with hugs and kisses as if we were his long lost family from America. I, with my binder and excel spreadsheet in hand - of all the activities I wanted to do and list of places I wanted to see and Tony with his “Do you TRUST ME?” - “Let’s Go…” - “ Let’s stop for a Coffee & Cake” - “Wait… Wait… It’s coming… AND WELCOME TO MY HOME… POS-I-TAAHHH-NOOO…”
We saw and did everything on my list and so MUCH MORE! Tony is just MAGICAL, he has boundless energy, he is fun, charming, & extremely professional. The word “NO” is not in his vocabulary. During the hours and days we spent together we became family. Tony talks about his travels, his family, his house, cooking, Italy, his broccoli tree, wine, history, politics, food, lemons, gardening and LET’S NOT FORGET – EVERY FACT ABOUT HIS 6000 YEAR OLD HOMETOWN – POISITANO!
His magnetic personality will draw you in and keep you focused on what he is saying and his stories as he smoothly with surgical precision navigates the miles and miles of white knuckled twists and turns and curves of The Amalfi Coast.
This man started out in our lives as a signature line “ Positantotonytaxi” and he will forever be in our hearts; I know that this friendship that was planted in Positano will continue to grow for a lifetime. And If I ever need reminding I will look at my garden of 3rd and 4th generation seeds from his family of Basil & Tomatoes & Zucchini and know just how special he is trusting me with a part of his Italian legacy.
I wholeheartedly recommend Tony and his company and can positively say it would be a mistake to visit The Amalfi Coast and not book “POSITANOTONYTAXI” !!!”
