Should you travel to Sicily, and want a private driver to take you from one location to another, I would highly recommend Michele Gallo with Sicily TravelNet. My recent visit required travel between Palermo, Taormina, Agrigento, Serradifalco, Corleone and back to Palermo. All communication was done via email, and Michelle made it an easy process with very reasonable prices! The... More

We hired Michele for a half-day e150 tour of the Valley of the Temples. We had visited the museum the day before so we had lots of questions. We spoke for about 30 minutes in the hotel lobby where he answered all our questions and more. No doubt in our minds he isn't extremely bright and knowledgeable but now, the... More

Thank you for your kind review and for the opportunity you give me to clarify a few points: 1) "Besides the guiding fee we were required to pay our own entrance fees!" The guiding fee is for the guiding service and does not include the admission fee. That's why you can enter a site by paying the admission fee without... More

This was a great day out and one of the main reasons for our trip to Sicily. Managed to contact Michele after three emails and two phone calls. He arranged for James (from Liverpool!) to pick us up from our hotel in Catania and take us on the tour in a beautifully clean and comfortable Mercedes. James took us to... More

One of the primary reasons for us to visit Sicily and stay in Ortigia was because we wanted to in the area close-by to the Inspector Montalbano film locations. After research on the internet and also getting 2 options one from Sicilynet and one from our Hotel, we decided to go ahead with the Sicilynet tour because it seemed to... More

In May 2013, I used Sicily Travelnet for a one day private shore tour of Taormina and wineries of Mount Etna. The driver was very professional and the price we paid was reasonable for all we saw and did in the one day. So this year, I was trying to again use them for another shore tour. But this time...

I was truly amazed at how well this day trip was planned. Staying there ONLY one day didn't give us much time to see everything, however, thanks to this tour we had a chance to visit all the gorgeous places in Sicily. The tour guide Luca knew exactly what he was saying and he made the trip all the more... More

Through Trip Advisor I came across Michele Gallo's Tours and I surely wasn't disappointed. Arriving in Pozzallo from Malta, we found our driver/guide Luca waiting to take us on a day tour visiting lovely towns like Scicli, Modica, Ragusa Ibla, Noto, Donnafugata Castle,Donnaucata and more. All this came at a very reasonable price and Luca turned out to be very... More

Michele Gallo coordinated our entire 12 day tour around Sicily, from Palermo to Taormina and many places in between. He coordinated drivers to and from the airports, drivers from city to city, and guides for each city and drive. Every tour guide and every driver were timely, professional, extremely knowledgeable, personable and accommodating to our needs. We could not have... More

Needed a short, Eastern Sicily tour so the tour offered by Sicily TravelNet was great. We did not think to ask how many people would be on the tour so were, to say the least disappointed to fine there were 52 on the tour. However, the worst was the the very poor communication from Sicily TravelNet. It was like puling... More
