Know Before You Go
Driver-escort information:

This excursion is customized using a driver-escort. A driver-escort is a chauffeur specialized to drive you around the amazing island. He is able to provide basic historical information and he can show you the main highlights. Your driver-escort will take care to give adequate time at all stops and to accommodate special requests when possible.

The driver-escort is not a licensed tourist guide. Licensed tourist guides are the only professionals with a regional license permitted to conduct visits and tours in all sites and museums within a city, and he cannot escort you inside the monuments because this is not allowed by Italian rules. In case you need a licensed local guide you must pay a surcharge and a licensed guide will be arranged for you.
