I first contacted Val at Tour of Sicily just one month before our arrival. I explained what I hoped to see in the 7 days my husband & I were in Sicily and she and I together via email worked out a plan we could afford which more than met our needs. We were blessed to be able to have... More

My husband and I opted to use Tradizione Turismo based on the excellent reviews we found on Tripadvisor and we were thrilled with our choice. The company boasts that they are small group tours....... We only had three of us plus our wonderful guide Giuseppina (Josephine translated). Having never been to Sicily before, we decided to take a look around... More

We were extrenely fortunate to have Giusy as our tour guide and driver. She took us for a private tour to Segesta, Ceuso Winery and Eriche. Felt totally comfortable with her instantly. Giusy not only explained the history of the sights along the way, the Segesta Temple and excavations, Eriche Ruins, but also the vegetation and geography of the regions... More

We did a seven day tour and I can't imagine a better introduction to the fascinating island of Sicily. Giusy was our guide for the week, and we immediately felt comfortable in her company. She fulfilled multiple roles effortlessly; historical guide, social guide, driver and head of health and safety! She knew when to give us background detail, and when... More

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...
