Famous Carmine Foggia – Private Escort Driver- “Carmine’s Secret Tour”

Allow me to introduce myself, hello my name is Carmine Foggia. I am a driver guide for Southern Italy (specialty Naples Area- Pompeii – Amalfi Coast- Herculaneum and so much ).  I have been ranked as one of the top drivers in the Campania Region.  I am the Carmine with See Amalfi Coast. I am the famous Carmine on Rick Stevs book with over 3000 reviews major website Trip Advisor, Tourbylocal and mentioned on the Best Tourist magazine.   Unfortunately, due to many business conflicts with my partner. I have created another website/my own company. I was hoping we can continue to collaborate through Via Amalfi.  Flexible and willing to negotiate a mutual understanding and agreement. I will continue to provide my best customer service and creative itinerary. The team of Via Amalfi has been in this business since 1987. We have changed the name to Via Amalfi as we have re-branded from See Amalfi Coast and Carmine’s Coast in order to re define our business/service. We have re-defined in providing better customer service and various activities to our wide range of our clients. We provide more daily tours, excursions, transfers, and a wide variety of activities to choose from. We are proud to say: Our clients come as guests, tour as friends and leave as family.

History Background

My father started as a tour guide in Naples in 1952 with a single hope to share the Italian culture with anyone who wanted to experience it. In 1989 I joined my father as a certified escort driver and guide in Italy. I focus on my hometown of Naples and the Amalfi Coast.

I have been sharing my hometown for over 27 years now and I have come to see that visiting my region can be very commercial. Most who visit never really got to feel or experience the essence of Naples or the Amalfi Coast of what it truly is. This region is filled with culture and experience far beyond the tourist traps most tours limited their guests to.  It is my goal for my guests to experience this part of Italy, not just seeing it.

It is one thing to visit my country but it another thing to experience it. I want my guests to experience the Amalfi Coast and live the Italian culture, even if it is only for one day. But he only way to do this is to get off the beaten path, step back into a world that has not been affected by progress or change and immerse yourself in the culture of this region. 

We breakaway from the tour bus experience and traverse small roads overlooking the most beautiful coast on the Mediterranean Sea. When you visit you will enjoy a true Farm to Table lunch experience. We will walk the terraced hillside and see where your food and wine came from and feel what it is like to be welcomed into the home and restaurant of an Italian family. This is the Italian culture experience you are looking for.

When you experience the Amalfi Coast through my eyes you will see Italy for what it really is. Come, let me show you my hometown.That’s only one of the countless reasons why you should contact me and find out more about it. I am positive that if you will come along on one of my tours you will absolutely love it! and at the end of your tour experience, like all my previous guests you will refer to the tour as “Carmine’s Secret tour”  a nickname that was given to me by Rick Steves (American travel writer, author, activist and television personality).Rick Steves travel philosophy is to experience the local people’s way of life and less-touristed areas. Come join me on my secret adventure tour “Carmine’s Secret tour”.
