We contacted this company after reading many positive reviews on TripAdvisor. There was one particular posting that caught my eye so I followed up with an email to Valy. She was the best! Everything was handled easily and efficiently. It's always concerning when you are making plans (and paying money) to a company that you don't know. Valy worked with... More

We contacted this company and they were so easy and accommodating. Our guide picked us up at the cruise port, and he was on time. Our guide was Tony, it was Easter Monday, so many things were not open, and it was a little rainy. He took us all around, went to the open market, walked around and he explained... More

Tour of Sicily helped five of us develop an 8-day itinerary around the island, providing a van and driver, hotels, and wonderful adventures meeting local artisans, cooks, and food vendors. Valy and Michela took our ideas and produced a trip that had variety and interest every day. Vincenzo, our driver, was easy company, a knowledgeable companion, and a fabulous driver.... More

I booked this 7 night "Sicilian Highlights" holiday to give us an overall look of Sicily. Firstly we had 4 nights in Palermo, an excellent city for the 3 day trips to Agrigento, Monreale and Erice. We stayed at Hotel Plaza Opera, a good hotel for walking around Palermo and with good nearby restaurants. The staff were very friendly and... More

Valy handled the booking flawlessly and gave us many options for our tour. We were hoping to see Cefalù and she warned us it might not be possible in February because of weather--we kept our fingers crossed but pencilled in a day in Palermo and Monreale. Our driver Gaspare met our party of six at the cruise ship terminal and... More

Tradizione did a great job organizing our trip with us. Valy and Michela were responsive and informative during the email exchanges in which we made all the arrangements. All pick-ups, etc. were prompt and as promised. We had an amazing driver-escort (Josephine ("Josie")) with us for most of the first 7 days of the trip. She was friendly, informative, funny... More

The Sicilian Trilogy (Tradizione Turismo) offers the best sites of Sicily for a first-time visitor to this timeless island - from ancient history (Syracuse, Agrigento, Segesta, Piazza Armerina) to Baroque towns of Noto, Ragusa, Monreale and modern Palermo, Taormina as well as agri-turism (visits to olive oil farm and wine-making/ tasting). The food was glorious everywhere and the portions were... More

We arranged a private day tour for our cruise port day in Palermo. They have many tours and the 7 of us chose the Monreale and Palermo ( with the Catacombs) tour. Our guide Tony spoke excellent English and was friendly and very knowledgable. He was also a very good driver which in Palermo is a must! He was also... More

We had excellent advice e with a well-informed guide, excellent English communication skills, and total flexibility as our group of 8 often changed our minds and moved at a brisk pace. Highly recommend.

This trip was booked to get to the top of Active Volcano, Mount Etna. We were a party of 4 adults and 2 children aged 5 & 7 years. Josephine was waiting with a sign in the kids names which they were trilled and excited to see.... If you need a good safe driver in Messina, just ask for Josephine..... More
