I signed up for a 4 days private, guided tour of Sicily with Paolo Mortellaro (Handy Sicily). Paolo is Sicilian and very knowledgeable. My tour covered Agrigento, Donnafugata, Castilla d'Romana, Ragusa, Noto, Modica, & Siracusa. For Agrigento I wanted to see Valley of the Temples, Greek settlement. There were several ruins including a massive temple dedicated to Zeus. We also... More

My husband and I decided at the last minute to visit Sicily in January this year. Paolo was recommended to us by friends and available on the dates we had free. We were collected at the airport in Catania and travelled across Sicily with him (he is a great driver) over a period of 7 nights, ending our tour in... More

We have just returned from 12 glorious days on Handy Sicily’s “Best of Sicily” tour. We had a fantastic time thanks to expert planning and execution by Handy Sicily’s owner / operator Paolo Mortellaro! The “Best of Sicily” tour covers a large area of Sicily and as such was perfect for seeing all the top Sicily sites, including the best... More

Traveling to Sicily was a great opportunity to visit the many historic sights, including many beautiful churches. We were amazed by the many civilizations which were prominent and left evidence of their occupation. Our guide Luca was familar with not only the well known sights but out-of-the-way places which were of great interest. And the food was great with a... More

My friends and I recently took the 8 day tour offered by Handy Sicily, and it exceeded our expectations in every way. The countryside was beautiful, the historical sites amazing, the food was beyond delicious, especially those cannolis at the Farmhouse, and the accommodations were very comfortable. Even though all of that was more than we could have hoped for,... More

Five friends took an 11 day tour of Sicily with Paolo and we were very pleased. He booked us into nice hotels, led us to interesting restaurants, and made sure we saw all the sights. He knows some places such as small private museums that are not in the guidebooks, and he encouraged us to get to acquainted with some... More

Friends and I booked Handy Sicily because of the reviews we'd read on TripAdvisor. Everything that everyone said was true. Paolo was at the airport to meet us and spent seven days with us. He is knowledgeable, pleasant, funny, and flexible. A great driver in Sicily is a must, which Paolo was. Paolo adjusted our travel schedule for us to... More

We (my sister and I) were met by our driver and tour guide Luca who was on time and had a great knowledge of all the towns and places we visited. He was an avid Archaeologist and was able to explain all the temples and archaeological sites we went to. And there is quite a lot in Sicily. Once we... More

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
