Mandara Car Services
My Motto says "No place is great to explore without friends to share and enjoy it together"
Mandara Car Services was created by me Patrizio Mandara with many years of experience first abroad USA and UK and then in the Limousine and tourist business all brought up here in my sweet Positano, the land of Paradise. We cordially offer to help you during your stay and will welcome you like a friend in true Positano style. Our goal is to provide the best possible services and assistance to all our customers, in order to transform your holiday on the Amalfi Coast into a unique and unforgettable life experience.
We offer private car and minivan transfers with English speaking drivers to and from any port, train station or airport in Italy to Sorrento, Positano, Praiano, Amalfi, Ravello or anywhere else on the Amalfi Coast.
We organize Excursions to the historic and ancient sites of Pompeii, Herculaneum, Paestum and Vesuvius and we can organize English guides for these sites if required.
One of my favorite places I've been, and Patrizio, our driver and now friend made it extra special, He took us places we wouldn't have normally seen, it was amazing! Patrizio always had great suggestions on where to eat to beautiful small towns to visit. Always felt very safe traveling with him. Can't wait to go back and visit the Amalfi Coast and our new friend Patrizio, (very kind and personable).Pjrkell Carver, Massachusetts (September 2016)
Our group of 7 women visited the Amalfi coast in Oct. 2015. We came to meet Patrizio very early in our travels, we were so lucky. He was such a friendly and safe driver we booked our daily excursions with him for the remainder of our 10 day trip . He had great suggestions for daily trips, saw sights from a locals view , had great restaurant suggestions, visited Pompeii, Ravelo , Sorrento , and on our last night he cooked us dinner in our villa! Was sad to leave our new friend . Would definitely book our travel with Patrizio again . Can't wait to return Eileen D.Eileen D Norwell, Massachusetts (July 2016)
My husband and I visited the Amalfi Coast September 2016 as part of our month long trip of Europe. To this day we still talk about our tours with Patrizio. We had the best time of our entire trip on the coast. Patrizio was fantastic, he was always punctual, immaculate clean Mercedes van, courteous and a lot of knowledge of the area. As per other reviews we were treated like family. We provided an idea of what we wanted to see, do and of course eat and Patrizio did the rest taking us to a Mozzarella factory and his cousins restaurant for lunch...food was delicious! We felt 100% safe with Patrizio, if you have been to Amalfi Coast you know how dangerous the roads can be. We would recommend Mandara Car Service to any of our friends and will definitely use their services next time we are in the area. Thanks Patrizio and hope to see you again soon!

As a family we were invited to a wedding on the most beautiful Amalfi coast. The whole experience from the weather (which included amazing electrical storms) to the accommodation and the company enjoyed was totally out of this world. Funny thing though, is that I can't help myself every time we discuss our holiday, of thinking of Patrizio, our amazing taxi driver who just knows how to be professional and friendly in every way possible. We were made to feel welcome and absolutely nothing was too much trouble for either guy! Advice was offered on places to go and even during this very obvious busy time, Patrizio didn't mind hanging about after dropping my partner and me off at a local ceramic factory on route to our final destination... I cannot praise these guys highly enough - the service is excellent, they speak good English and they have mastered the roads which are more than a little hazardous to the first time visitor! Apologies for the late recommendation Patrizio, and thank you for the very kind Christmas wishes. We will be using your services again my friend - and hopefully before too long. Thanks again from Anna, Vince and the rest of the family from Scotland.Vince-Ts Banchory, Regno Unito (July 2016)
I must complement Patrizio from "Mandara Car Services" for showing us the locals view of the Amalfi Coast. We visited this area in October for our 30th wedding anniversary and could not have asked for a better tour. We originally were going to go for a 4 hour tour and became so impressed with his knowledge of the area that we ended up spending 2 full days with Patrizio. Just tell him what your looking to do and knows exactly where to bring you, shopping, restaurants, etc...Mike M Dracut, Massachusetts (May 2016)
My wife and I were lucky enough to be invited to join my brother Chris and his family on their family trip to Italy. Our unbelievable week in Positano would not have been the same without our driver Patrizio. He met us in Rome for the drive to Positano and was available all week for our every transportation need and more. Patrizio was invaluable in helping us with restaurant recs, local attractions, and giving us great advice on how and what might be of interest to our family. We made trips to Pompeii and down the Amalfi coast and Patrizio was invaluable in getting us there. He even spent much of a day finding and delivering a fracture boot to our villa for my sister-in-law who broke her foot. He is just a genuine, caring, and passionate person who became our friend. He even took my brother Chris and I to his garden to pick fresh basil and tomatoes to take back to our villa, fantastic! His driving service was first class and our trip would not have been the same without him. Can't wait to get back.hkwmsjr , Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania (June 2016)
We did a private tour of the Amalfi Coast with Patrizio and thoroughly enjoyed it. We visited Ravello, Amalfi and Positano from our base in Sorrento - Patrizio gave us advice and recommendations for what to see in each of them. The coastline is absolutely beautiful and definitely not to be missed on any trip in the region. The van was very spacious and air conditioned and we were offered plenty of water and also wifi. The price was reasonable compared to some other quotes we were given and overall well worth the money as driving and trying to park in each of the towns looked like it could prove to be interesting! Communication was very good beforehand and Patrizio responded almost straight away. Thank you for a great day!Victoria.B, Liverpool, Regno Unito (August 2016)
"Patrizio Mandara is unique in his skill as a guide to all that is great and worthwhile along the Amalfi Coast. He has an incredible personality, has wonderful connections to wonderful people, and knows about everything there is to know about the area. Not only did my wife and I thoroughly enjoy our time with him, we also learned a great deal about the area, were able to visit and learn from a number of craftsmen in varied disciplines, were guided to great meals and wines, but also laughed along the way because of his wonderful sense of humor. Down deep, Patrizio is a principled man and very honest. We greatly appreciated his advice in steering us from disappointments. He has become a very trustworthy friend.
