We did a tour of the Valley of the Temples with Michele Gallo who made the area come alive for us. This morning tour was definitely a highlight of our time in Sicily. Michele is so knowledgeable and interesting and we were sorry when we needed to say goodbye. Plus he recommended a restaurant to us where we had the... More

Buongiono Michele, We just want to express our great appreciation to Tommy and Angelo for their tremendous efforts in locating my fathers birthplace and family friends. They took us up the winding roads from Taormina to Tripi, a feat that Angelo did extremely well. Tommy was a great interpreter, especially with only limited information from old photographs. They managed to... More

We used SicilyTravelNet on September 23, 2013 for the Etna Wine Tour. This is a great tour to use if you want to experience the explosion of outstanding wines from the Etna region. Unfortunately, our driver had an accident on the way to our pick-up location. The company was able to locate another driver for us, Ezio Scotto, based in... More

My wife and I were scheduled for a 6-night Mediterranean cruise sailing out of Messina, Sicily in early September. We decided to visit Sicily for a few days before the cruise since our families are Sicilian. I found Sicily TravelNet on Tripadvisor and also noted it was mentioned in Frommer's Sicily. I contacted Sicily TravelNet by email regarding setting up... More

We were picked at Catania airport and had a circular drive around the... More

We recently entrusted our travel arrangements to Michele for our 8 day tour for 6 friends. We have to thank Michele for his excellent choices of locations, for organising our transport, our wonderful and knowlegable driver Salvitore and Giovannie, and his excellent choice of accomodation. We would particularly like to thank Michele for his personal guidance through the valley of... More

We recently had the pleasure of having a driver at our disposal for four of us while traveling in Sicily. We were picked up at the Catania airport, driven around the southern and western slopes of Mt. Etna, taken to a restaurant nearby, and delivered to our hotel in Taormina. For the next six days, we were taken to Siracusa,... More

I organized tours of Agrigento and Etna+Taormina with Michele for our family of 6 (with 4 pre-teen children). In both locations, we had great guides, experienced with kids, and that we're able to get the full attention of our children on the natural and historic marvels we were visiting. We were fully satisfied, and warmly recommend Michele's services.

On our first meeting with Michele Gallo, we explored the Valley of the Temples and the National Archeological Museum. Although I am not a great student of history and my husband is, Michele had the unique ability to bring history alive. You could visualize the construction of the Greek temple, understand cutting and lifting techniques for the stones, the process... More

Our party of eight was scheduled to visit Messina as part of our Mediterranean cruise on the Carnival Breeze. In preparation for our visit I looked for a tour of both Taormina and Mt Etna. I found the Sicily Travelnet site on the web, read some reviews, and requested a quote for what we wanted. I was pleased with the... More
