Booked this through Michele Gallo. Yes, one had to be a bit persistent in getting the initial email answered but after this the service was very efficient. We took the train from Palermo and our guide Teresa met us at the station and drove us to the temples where she provided a very good and interesting 3-hour in-depth walking tour... More

Michele Gallo canceled on us the day before our scheduled tour. I wish I could give a positive review however my big mistake was listening to other TripAdvisor reviews that said don't worry about his lack of response when booking. Our roots tour was a dream for a very long time, and we felt very fortunate to have "booked" Michele... More

Dear Mary R, We can book a tour only when we know exactly the date of the tour, the number of participants and the kind of services you require. You sent some emails asking about a root tour of Tortorici not Racalmuto on October 18. We responded quoting the different services available and confirming our availability. No reply on your...

Michele Gallo gave us a wonderful 4 hour tour of Naro and surrounding areas in Sicily. We saw the sights we wanted to see without any hurry and had time for him to show us extra places. He provided local color and history along the way. Loved it. Thanks Michele. Camera essential for the interesting, narrow passageways of Naro. Got... More

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

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
