I enjoyed the Montalbano one day tour very much. Luca, the driver & guide arrived punctually and was very nice and professional. We spoke not only about Montalbano, but also about italian and world cinema. I was thrilled to learn that he actually acted in one of the first season chapters! He also knew a lot of Sicily, its people,... More

We used Michele and Sicily Travelnet for both transfers from/to airport as well as two half day tours. Our flight arrived almost 3 hours late due to delays and our driver Giovanni waited for arrival. The 2+ hour drive to our destination included explanations of the areas we were traveling through and answers to any questions we had. Vehicles used... More

Being big Montalbano fans, we booked an all day tour with Sicily Travelnet before leaving the UK. We had no difficulty in communicating our requirements, establishing cost, length of tour, pick -up point and time. Our English speaking guide/driver, Anna took us to all the main filming locations, referencing the relevent episodes and Camilleri's books. We even ate at Enzo's... More

Can't say what tours are like because it is impossible to get responses without repeat emails and even then they won't answer a direct question about cost or capacity. Very much looked forward to do the Montalbano Film tour as I'm a great fan. I went to Porto Empedocle by myself and wanted to do what appears to be a... More

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

alkirkenti, Owner at Sicily Travelnet Private Tours, responded to this review

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...
