About Me

 Hello! Nice to meet you! Let’s first to introduce my company…

My Name is Gioacchino Colonna (as Spanish Joaquim), but due the pronunciation’s problem (most of the differences between English and Italian are about vowels pronounce), one of my first English speaking customer had hard time to speech it so he started to give me Jack as nick name and I became by time, a.k.a. Jack the Driver. I operate mainly along the Amalfi Coast, Sorrento, Positano, Amalfi, Ravello, Pompeii, Naples. My 30 years experience in this business, gave me wide acknowledgement about how to organize transfers, tours, excursions. 

I was born in Sorrento and I always lived there. My family, Sorrento’s original since the 18th century, have had interests in tourism business since 1900. My Great Grand Father from my Grandmother side, Francesco De Angelis aka Don Ciccillo re’ carrozze ( Francesco owned some horse-drawn carriages, in Italian “carrozze”) and also owned a “osteria” (like a today small family restaurant) located in the oldest part of the town, actually Via Santa Maria della Pietà.  Two of Francesco’s sons was the first car drivers in Sorrento and they worked for the best hotels in town. His daughter, my Grandmother Maria had a  “pensione” (a small family hotel) called “Villa Pollio”  in the town outskirts. Even my dad owned a restaurant in the fishermen’s village, originally called “La Lampara” and later a small hotel downtown Sorrento.

All of them gave me and important lesson:  respect your customers and  give effort and passion in what you do and you’ll be successfull! I am still following their teaching!


I very highly recommend Jack as a driver and guide… Jack has such a wonderful way of talking to people and putting people at ease. He really went out of his way to make sure this was the best trip I have ever had
