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.

It is best to go very early since it is on the way. We went very early and we did not have to queue since we had the tickets purchased. The tour lasts a maximum of two hours. It is a very good experience. And if you want you can do driving simulation.

Excellent driver and tour guide (Paolo). We really enjoyed all parts of the tour. Great assistance from Paolo all the time. Nothing to complain about. Highly recommended.

Anyone who loves the Ferrari myth is absolutely right here. For Formula 1 fans from the Michael Schumacher era, goosebumps are inevitable

The Museum experience was fascinating. Thank you so much!
