We were met by Valy as we booked out of our hotel in Syracuse. He was a very pleasant fellow with a good command of the English language. Valy took us from Syracuse via Agrigento to Cefalu. This was a rather long journey as we expected. The vehicle was roomy and comfortable, and the driving skills were excellent. A very... More

There is no substitute for a local guide. Giuseppina took us to the best places in Palermo, Monreale Cathedral, the Cappuccini Catacombs, the Chinese Palace and Mondello beach. She is a lifelong Palermo native and speaks fluent English. She always had something informative and interesting to say about the sites visited, as well as many things we passed along the... More

We recently took a Mediterranean cruise and two of our stops included Messina and Palermo in Sicily. We booked private tours for both ports with Tour of Sicily and on both occasions I can honestly say that they exceeded our expectations. From Messina we visited SAVOVA, TAORMINA & ETNA and during our Palermo tour we did a fabulous food walking... More

My wife and me decided to take an holiday in Sicily and bought the six days tour. We spent this beautiful holiday in July 2014. We had the opportunity to visit some very nice places, some of them really famous, some others unknown but probably they were the nicest ones. Giuseppina, our guide, for the entire duration of the tour,... More

We booked the tour that took us through the entire country and it was outstanding. Giuseppina is a terrific tour guide and a truly lovely person. Even the restaurant the first night in Palermo was great -- not a high-traffic tourist spot but a low-key, great decor, old school Sicilian restaurant; Giuseppina described every dish that came on to our...

We were disappointed in only 1 tour company while on our Mediterranean cruise - Tour of Sicily. We exchanged emails with them and some other tour operators for our stop in Palermo on April 27. They gave us some options, and I went to their website to reserve one. The website was not easy to understand, but I eventually ended... More

My wife, 22 year old daughter and I had a great Godfather Tour of Italy. Our driver Mario met us at the dock of our cruise ship in Catania on June 26. We had the full day tour, and had a wonderful experience. We went to Salvoca where scenes of the Godfather were shot. We went to the church, and... More

Josie was a fantastic guide. She was constantly making sure we were happy, informed and prepared for the next stage of our trip. We feel very lucky to have had her accompanying us on our first visit to Sicily. A wonderful holiday. Thank you all!!!

You have probably read many of the earlier reviews which give nothing short of glowing praise for this eight day tour. I can only agree. The level of service provided is excellent and our tour guide, Guiseppina, is an unbelievably considerate, knowledgeable and competent person. If you do book this tour and manage to get Guiseppina as your tour leader,... More

We had the most wonderful experience using this company to tour Sicily. We heard about it from Trip Advisor and it was the first time we had used a tour company. We had three amazing guides. Marco took us throughout Palermo for two days. He was so knowledgable and personable and did everything to make our visit interesting and fun.... More
