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

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....
