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

My daughter and I returned from our second trip to Sicily. This time we visited the southeast and the UNESCO towns of Noto, Modica and Ragusa. Paolo assisted with our arrangements prior to our arrivals and Luca was our driver/guide for the visit. Luca was a delight, he is a charming and quite knowledgable individual and well respected by other... More

The accommodation was comfortable, the food superb and Paolo was a fantastic guide, driver and companion. He went out of... More

My wife and I made the decision to make Sicily the focus of our recent visit to Italy, after a colleague recommended the individualised tours offered by Handy Sicily. We took the extended 11 day, Best Tour, but there are others. It turned out that Paolo Mortellaro was unavailable to conduct us on the dates we needed. We were disappointed... More

Architecturally, Noto is well worth visiting. It is a feast for your eyes if you like the Baroque period. What's even better is that the sites are not far apart as they're not spread out. They're there altogether. There are also some fabulous churches in the town, which makes for a great day out! Everything is free, except for the... More

My wife and I celebrated our 40th wedding anniversary in Sicily. We booked the private tour with HandySicily. The trip could not have been any better. We learned about the Sicilian coulture, food, people, food, churches, food, ancient ruins, food, etc. Paolo, our guide and driver, was like a local friend showing us the sights.

This is a great way to experience Sicily. We travelled for 10 days with HandySicily's owner and guide, Paolo, in his air-conditioned Mercedes and visited/tasted/thoroughly absorbed much of the beauty, history, food and culture of this island - so much richer than we had imagined. Paolo has an impressive local knowledge and really helped us understand Sicily, ancient and modern.... More
