      Travel with the best.
      We enjoyed a wonderful tour of Sicily with a group of friends last month. The tour was meticulously planned by Angela and included wine tastings, amazing lunches and dinners with wine and excellent accommodation. Over 10 days we were expertly transported in a luxury coach in the very safe hands of Guissepe who is a master of navigating the narrow roads circumnavigating the beautiful country of Sicily. We very much appreciated Angela’s expert commentary as she is so passionate about her homeland. All the guides including Angela spoke very good English which can be a comfort when travelling in a foreign country. We have no hesitation in recommending Angela and her services if you are considering a visit to beautiful Sicily.

      Sicily has captured our hearts
      An amazing and unique experience, immersing our group in the cultures, traditions, histories, people, places and foods of magical Sicily. Angela (& Giorgio) provided the perfect balance of professionalism and personal connection and their knowledge of and passion for Sicily was next to none. As well as seeing Sicily and all her beauty, we also got to feel and live Sicily. My review comes with the highest recommendation. We look forward to returning to this rich and wondrous place.

      Food, Wine, and Culture Experience of a lifetime
      Touring With Sicily by Experts – A Pleasure Throughout In May of 2023 we spent three weeks traveling through Sicily on a tour organized by Sicily By Experts, a tour company operated by Angela Macaluso. As we planned the trip, Angela carefully listened to our needs, interests, and desires for places we definitely wanted to see and places and things that were of limited or little interest to us in Sicily. She then developed a schedule of experiences that were very well focused on our interests and needs. We are particularly interested in food, cooking, and wine to accompany good food. Angela arranged several marketing and cooking experiences that were insightful and that illuminated the various strands of Sicily’s food culture rooted in so many cultures over the ages. She also arranged for visits to several wine estates and wineries. We had an excellent tour throughout. The hotels Angela booked for us were all first rate, neat, clean and well located for the exploring we like to do in the historical centers of cities. All had helpful staff who, in several instances made useful recommendations. The drivers she arranged for our various outings and transfers as well as the equipment for those trips were first rate. The drivers were friendly and for the most part spoke excellent English, which was helpful for us as our Italian is very weak, and our Sicilian dialect nonexistent. The tour guides for various outings were all knowledgeable, helpful, and flexible as to making field adjustments for various outings when we decided that some change would make a particular excursion more enjoyable for us. Each day Angela checked in to make sure things were working as planned and to let us know details of the arrangements for the next day’s activities. On several excursions she accompanied us herself. Having her as a guide on those days was especially enjoyable. Finally, the definite high point of our whole stay in Sicily was meeting members of Angela’s extended family in a “Cooking With Grandmother” food preparation experience and meal that was the unforgettable culmination of our trip. We recommend Angela’s services to anyone looking to have a well curated, custom-fitted tour of Sicily. Our trip was smooth and a good value for the price charged. We definitely recommend Angela and her services for anyone wanting to get the most out of time spent in Sicily or, for that matter, anywhere else in Italy or the world that she plans tours.

      Trip if a lifetime to Italy with friends
      Angela organized the trip of a lifetime for me and my group of friends (6 total). She understood our bucket list wishes and made those happen for us. From winery visits and meals, beautiful trekking scenery excursions to local culture and in -home cooking experiences. We experienced beautiful hotels and amazing food. Angela made sure we got a taste of life in Italy. We felt immersed and like we got the best of Italy. We were very impressed with attention to details and her checking in with us to make sure everything was good. I highly recommend Angela.

      Fantastic tour of Sicily with Angela
      This was an amazing experience from start to finish. Angela helped to curate a delightful 6 day tour of Sicily for our group of 8. Based in Cefalu for 4 days we experienced Palermo, Agrigento, Arigona and Patti for intimate cooking instruction, temple and winery tours and personalized attention. Angela is tremendously knowledgeable about the island and found the perfect places for us to visit to give us a true taste of Sicilian life. We then headed to Taormina for a few days to tour Siracusa, Mt Etna and more wineries. Angela’s connections with local guides, drivers and restaurants were always top notch, friendly and helpful and made this a most memorable trip. You truly feel like part of Angela’s family and we would not hesitate to work with her in the future. Highly recommend!

      Experience of a Lifetime
      This was a once in a lifetime custom tour! It was a full seven days in Sicily that was expertly guided by Angela. Starting in a beautiful villa in Cefalu with a home cooked meal our first night. We went on to explore Cefalu, Palermo, Agrigento, Taormina, Siracusa, Mt. Etna, wineries, cooking class we did it all and it was wonderful. Every detail was impeccable. But there is another piece to this review. One goal of this trip was to locate the the final resting place of my biological father and sister. Through Angela's determination not only did I find what I was looking for, we were able to locate other relatives who have made me part of their family, forever. Our experience was everything we wanted and so much more because of Angela. Can't wait for the next adventure. Grazie Angela, dal profondo del mio cuore. Per sempre grato.

      Simply amazing!!
      Honest review of Angela and her team at Italy by Experts… I’d like to tell everyone how horrible they are to work with so I can have access to all of her future FAMs but I’d be lying. I spent 14 days on a FAM with Angela and everything was simply amazing! Our hotels/villas, tours, immersive experiences, site inspections and private drivers were excellent. I was a bit hesitant to go to a country I’d never been to before, with people I didn’t know and with a host I’d just met. I can honestly say it was the most magnificent and memorable experience. I got to watch Angela and her team pivot as small issues popped up. She handled all the details with ease and most wouldn’t have even known there was an issue. For example, there was a marathon in Milan and vehicles couldn’t get to our hotel past 7a. She had our luggage picked up by 6:45a, gave us time to finish getting ready for the day, eat breakfast and then had our transportation pick us up a few blocks from the hotel. I know this took a lot of organization but Angela didn’t skip a beat. I’m already plotting my return trip with a small group and can’t wait for her to host another FAM. I know without a doubt that every client I send to Italy by Experts will leave Italy as family and will be in the best hands. I almost hate giving this glowing of a review as I’d like to keep this hidden gem all to myself! P.S. Angela knows how and where to take all the great pics 🤩

      Sicily as we always wanted to see it
      Angela Macaluso was a wonderful expert who planned our trip and to met our individual interests. She patiently offered us options to see the amazing history, food, wine, and people of Sicily. Our four couple tour was a truly amazing, enjoyable, and memorable experience. As a native Sicilian, Angela presented the magic of Sicily in so many fun ways. We experienced the variety of Sicilian wines and cuisines with local expert tour guides who made the history of Sicily come alive. She also gave us the opportunity to interact with local Sicilians to further burnish our memories of this fantastic island. We will definitely call Angela the next time we want to see other regions of Italy!

      Treasures of Sicily
      Angela gave us a heartfelt and glorious vacation in and through Sicily. A group of 8 long-time friends had begun working with Angela before the pandemic hit in 2020. We had selected her because she is a Sicilian native who suggested and revised (according to our specifications) a 12-day tour of the island. When Covid closed down travel, she refunded all our money and so we rebooked with her in 2022 when traveling was again possible. The trip was a gastronomic delight: beginning with the very first meal in our astonishing seaside villa, when a gourmet chef cooked for all of us – including two vegetarians. Magnifico! Each day we toured city, countryside or ancient ruins, eating at restaurants, wineries and mountain villages. We were even treated to a family style meal with her parents in the 2000-year-old village of Polizzi Generosa. Autentico! We traveled in ten person vans driven by interesting and friendly locals; we stayed in excellent hotels with views of Mt. Etna and the sea, and ate, ate, ate. Some of our group wanted to visit wineries and taste local wines, some of us wanted fewer tours. Angela was able to arrange tastings and lunches that satisfied all of us – no kidding. I had injured my foot two days before traveling; Angela helped me find and purchase crutches, find and use electric wheelchairs (e.g., at the UNESCO World Heritage Site in Agrigento) and modify walking tours to accommodate my injury while still allowing for a full visit by others in our group. I cannot overstate my admiration and gratitude for Angela as a topnotch travel agent and tour guide, and lovely, warm human being. Cynthia I.

      Sensational Sicily Experience
      Our 6 day family tour of Sicily arranged by Sicily by experts was an unforgettable trip of a lifetime. Every excursion was a unique experience planned with every detail considered. From our cooking class and chef lead market tour of Sicilian street food to our private garden picnic at the Temples of the Gods in Arigento to the private wine tasting with farm to table dining in Syracuse, each experience truly exceeded all expectations. Our Guide Lorenza and driver Giuseppe anticipated every need and truly felt part of our family. They went above and beyond to take care of us ensure our trip was custom tailored and everything we wanted it to be.

      Absolutely magnificent
      I am a travel consultant with Valerie Wilson/Frosch and found Angela and Sicily by Experts through a search, and what a find she was. My clients wanted an unique experience in Rome and Sardinia and Angela and her team gave them an unforgettable experience. From the moment they arrived in Rome, the private transfers, the hotel, the tours, the dining experiences, then on to Sardinia. Once again an unforgettable experience, the unique boutique hotel, the activities she arranged, she even arranged a visit to a doctor for the necessary covid test requirement to travel back to the USA

      Unique experience in historic Cefalu
      Angela arranged a lovely two bedroom apartment for my family in the center of Cefalu, litterally minutes away from the beach. It was spacious, clean and completely furnished and we were made to feel very welcome and comfortable throughout our entire stay. Angela was very attentive and always available and we would recommend using Sicily by Experts next time you are in Cefalu.

      Private Tour of Sicily
      I had no idea what to expect when I travelled to Sicitly. But I was amazed by the scenery, culture, food and mostly the history.

Giuseppe our bus driver was the best and did a fantastic job driving us around safely and I was amazed that he could fit all bags in!

All in all the tour was a once in a lifetime experience. Thanks for everything! Judy and Vince.

    We had the most wonderful time touring around Sicily. We basically did the lap visiting many of the cities, towns and villages. The food, wine and sites were amazing and our tour guide Angela was prefect. She was able to share so much of the local history and knowledge which made the tour so much more enjoyable. She also ensured we had the best accommodation and out tour was topped off by the remarkable Giuseppe, our talented bus driver.

    What an outstanding experience that will provide a lifetime of memories. Angela (our guide) and Giuseppe (our driver) took great care of us at every opportunity and their passion for Sicily made the whole tour an experience for the heart as well as the mind. We were treated like royalty and have forged many wonderful friendships that will last for years to come.
    Our experiences felt tailored and unique and gave us insight into local culture, history, food (oh the food!), traditions and daily life.
    You get so much more from a guided tour like this one than just traveling under your own steam... lots of background and fascinating inside information.
    Family and friends comment on our incredible photos but really the incredible photos come from the very scenic and spectacular locations and experiences of our personalized tour and the oh-so photogenic Sicily.
    We have fallen in love with Sicily and look forward to returning next year.
    Thank you Ang, Giuseppe and team. I have nothing but the highest recommendation for this experience.

    There should be a 10 Star rating, as Angela would qualify....Angela pulled out all of the stops for our intimate group as we discovered the beauty, flavors, history and soul of Sicily!! She created an 8 Day 'beyond expectations' tour throughout this island of beauty and took us to multiple 'hidden gems' filled with fantastic local food, wine and beautiful Sicilian folk. Angela was always 'one step ahead' of our desires and adjusted our tour to meet our groups needs/desires, which was not always easy. The extraordinary experience of each stop will be an emotional memory to cherish and share with others to go visit Sicily and let Angela sprinkle her magic. Gracia Angela.. we shall return !
