This is a very good tour company. They offer many tours with interesting itineraries. Our particular tour started in Palermo as we stopped there on a cruise. Our guide Giuseppina picked us up at the port in a modern van. She was alone, but while driving she had a microphone and conveyed a lot of information to us. Because of... More

We enjoyed very much every part of our tour in Sicily. The selection of hotels was superb and the views were fantastic. Vincenzo went to the detail of booking specific floors and rooms along our trip so that we could always enjoy the best view/experience. This included being able to see the Etna from our bed in Taormina (won´t forget... More

You can't go wrong with best of Sicily tours. Their advice was spot on, the itinerary perfect, the accommodations first class and the service beyond excellent. The knowledge of the guides and the driver and their willingness to share their knowledge made our trip more than just a vacation, but a real learning adventure. I can confidently recommend them to... More

For our first visit to Sicily, the "Sicilian Highlights - West to East" tour offered by Tradizione Turismo exceeded our expectations. Thanks to Giusy Caldera, our unflappable, extremely personal and knowledgeable guide, as well as the local guides, we learned much about Sicily's layers of history and importance in the world. We have traveled in Italy a number of times,... More

We had a great cooking class with the enthusiastic young chef of the Melograno restaurant in Taormina. Great food and great fun! My son and I went round the market with him then we prepared a fantastic spread and had a lovely lunch of it, just the two of us. I now regularly prepare a caponata to die for!

Our driver Vincenzo was terrific and offered many insights along the way. He also pointed us in the right direction for a wonderful little cafe near the Cathedral at Monreale for a great lunch.

My wife Cathy and I went on the Tour of Sicily with Tradizione Tourismo, during the first week of September 2013. We started out in Palermo, and ended in Taormina, and I would recommend doing it this way, as Taormina is truly "The Cherry on Top". The hotel accommodations, the restaurants and the various day trips around Sicily were fantastic.... More
