The driver and car were wonderful. The driver was friendly, on-time, and knew where he was going. Having your own personal driver bringing you to each of the 3 locations and back to our hotel made the trip very convenient. The museum tours at Maranello and Modena + the factory tour were everything you could want as a Ferrari enthusiast. They handled the tickets so it made getting into the museums very easy. They also take you to a vineyard restaurant for lunch. The food and wine was amazing. Overall I highly recommend this tour. Regardless of whether you are a car enthusiast or not, the trip is well worth it.

From the moment I booked the tickets we had excellent communication. They made everything effortless and had detailed information on where to meet. What to expect. Time line. Our guide Giancarlo, was amazing. Lunch surpassed our expectations. Ferrari has a rich history and it was well worth taking a day to experience it all. It was a great day and effortless on our part. I highly recommend.

Wonderful experience. I was so impressed with communication - my needs fully addressed ' my driver Andriano was so professional caring and made my visit to the Ferrsri works so so rememberable. Thank you for your organisation skills to make a Nee Zealander a happy lady. Jan Jackson
