Joseph R. participated in one of our GT TOURS in ITALY last June. It was a two and a half day tour from Bologna through the Tuscan countryside and characteristic villages. We put a lot of effort into organizing amazing driving experiences in Italy and we are always happy to meet the expectations of the participants. It was the first time for Joseph driving a Ferrari F8 Spider in Italy and he really didn't know what to expect. Moreover, he booked the tour through the internet, on our website, and, as he told us in the interview, he was skeptical at first. So, he spent two and a half days with us and with other Ferrari enthusiasts like him in the Tuscan countryside and completely changed his mind. All his doubts were gone after the tour and he congratulated us for the organization. That's why we asked him to say a few words about our company and our GT Tour to get valuable feedback and some ideas to offer a better service. After a short talk, we decided to publish his answers.
Hello Joseph and thank you for your time! "No problem, I'm happy to share my thoughts about the GT TOUR I have experienced. I hope this will help other Supercar enthusiasts like me to find a reliable company to do the same."
How did you first get in touch with GT Rent Luxury Car Hire? "I was looking on the internet for a Tour in Italy. I've always been a fan of Italian supercars like Ferrari and Lamborghini and I wanted to experience a driving tour during my holidays in the country. It seems there are a number of tours where you drive the car around a major city for a short period of time. That was not what I wanted. I wanted something where I could really experience driving the car. I found the GT Rent website, 'GT EXPERIENCE', during my research and I was surprised by the variety of services and tours available and by the variety of Supercar models available, that's why I decided to send a request."
Why did you choose GT Rent for your Supercar Tour in Italy? "Sending a request through the website was extremely easy. After my request, I received a call from a very knowledgeable GT Rent consultant. I was worried about trusting a company that I had not heard much about and in a foreign country. But all the questions and doubts I had were excellently clarified by the consultant. I couldn't wait to drive a Ferrari F8 Spider for the first time in such an amazing place like Tuscany and I decided to confirm my reservation."
How did you find the driving experience of a Ferrari F8 Spider? "I own a Maserati and a Porsche Cayenne. They are great but the Ferrari F8 Spider is an amazing supercar, anyone who says otherwise is wrong. During the tour, I explored its potential to the fullest, always respecting the traffic rules of course. I really liked driving with the hardtop completely open and enjoying the sun and the view of the Tuscan countryside. But most of all, I liked the sound of the twin-turbo V8 engine: it was mind-blowing to me and really fun. It's a Ferrari F8 in its mother country. It's an artwork! The only thing I would say is that the paddle shifting is more fun than the automatic because the car shifts up very quickly on its own. The Ferrari was perfectly clean and functioning and I appreciated that a lot. Seeing it shine under the sun was fantastic, it allowed me to take some beautiful pictures of me with the car."
What was the thing that you liked the most during the tour? "Impossible to say. I loved the car, the hotels and the food. Everything was fantastic. With this GT tour, I went on roads following a lead car to places I would have never found by myself. The group didn't go slow and I got to really feel the power of the car. I didn't have to worry about directions, parking or refueling because Stefano took care of everything. Not only did we get to see so many places, but the drive in between was so much fun. At every town we stopped in there was enough time to walk around and take pictures. Plus, the hotels and restaurants reserved for the participants were first-class! Finally, our guides were great people and so responsive. It was great to travel with them. They made us feel at home in Italy. I really enjoyed being on a thrilling ride like that with the Ferrari F8 Spider."
Do you have any suggestions? What could we do better? "I can't think of a single thing. I only wish the trip had been longer. Your prices beat the competitors and I don't see how anyone could offer a better service. The GT Rent staff was always there with us, guiding us and giving us useful driving tips. You took care of everything allowing all the participants to fully enjoy the experience. It's a once in a lifetime trip, it was like driving through a postcard every day! Thank you for sharing this brief interview with us!"
"It was a pleasure to book a Supercar Tour with GT Rent Luxury Car Hire and I look forward to seeing the photos and videos from the professional photographer. I couldn't have asked for anything better, it was the best trip I have ever been on. Absolutely recommended!"
