When you read the reviews for Handy Sicily you will think they are too good to be true-all 5's because that is the highest rating available, (although someone did comment if a 10 was available Paolo would have earned it!) Your Sicily experience with Paolo as your guide will be exactly what you wish it to be-he is a dream... More

My wife and I recently spent 11 days touring Sicily with HandySicily. It was everything we expected and then some. While the tour included the usual highlights of Sicily, what made it exceptional was the flexibility that Paolo provided. One of the side trips we requested was a journey to my wife's grandmother's birthplace, Alia. With Paolo acting as the... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our 8 day tour of Sicily with Handy Sicily in which we were chauffeured around by Paolo, company owner, driver and guide, who was professional, friendly and courteous at all times. It was the only way to go with no driving pressures, an air conditioned vehicle in 30+C temperatures, and being able to see the passing sights... More

We wanted to see Baroque Sicily and liked the sound of the basic programme offered by Paolo Mortellaro. When we got there, we not only saw everything on the programme, but also one or two extras which we requested and several more suggested by Paolo, who knows places (and people!) which do not appear in any guidebook. Thoroughly recommended.

My wife and I recently returned from an 11 day tour of Sicily with Handy Sicily. Based on the reviews on Trip Advisor, we had high expectations for our trip. Simply put, Paolo and Luca provided us with an experience that exceeded our already high expectations. I can't think of a single thing that we would have changed about our... More

Handy Sicily was recommended to us and we have just returned from a wonderful trip to the south eastern area of Sicily. The culture and tasting tour was very well organised giving us a variety of visits to the baroque towns of Siracusa and Ortega, Noto, Ragusa and Modica, the seaside, the countryside and caves of Pantolica and Mount Etna....

We have just returned from a most enjoyable eight night tour with this company. We really appreciated the organisation and flexibility that is offered by Paulo and Luca. We were able to combine two of the tours on the web-site to create the one that we wanted. When we arrived, some timings on the schedule had very sensibly been altered... More

My wife and I were very keen to discover as much as possible about Sicily on our first visit. Paolo was the ideal guide and companion. His relaxed manner and knowledge of his homeland and its history made our 10 days in Sicily a rich & varied experience which we will not forget. He was always concerned for our welfare... More

Thanks to Paolo Mortellaro of Handy Sicily, we have just spent a delightful two days visiting the UNESCO Baroque sites in Ragusa, Modica, Scicli, Noto and Syracuse. Paolo took us to all the significant buildings and sites, and with his local knowledge and enthusiasm ensured that we experienced everything of interest. As my husband is not able to walk for...

Many thanks to Paolo our "fearless leader" who escorted us through the wonders of Sicily in July 2013. We learnt so much about his beautiful Sicilian homeland and we enjoyed being spoilt by this expert guide. Nothing was a problem to Paolo ...... it was a delight for the four of us to be in his hands for the best... More
