Is the driver-guide a tour guide as well?

Please note that the driver-guide is not a tour guide and he/she is not allowed to enter any historical site and act as a tour guide. They do have the knowledge of the sites, but they can only tell you about them from the outside. There are strict rules on this in Italy and consequently tour guides have different licenses and are the only ones allowed to guide you inside a historical site like ruins or museums etc.

We always aim to accommodate any request where possible. Please note that it is not always possible to request a driver you have had before because he/she could already be booked for other services.
