          Highly recommend
          We had the most wonderful tour of Corleone from Umberto. He went out of his way to ask the locals about my husband’s family heritage that originated from there. We had a very informative and interesting tour of the Godfathers house and then an amazing lunch at a local restaurant. I would highly recommend this tour, worth every penny!!

          Great tours and communication
          Christian drove our group of 6 to Segesta, Erice and Trapani. The next day Umberto drove us to Monreale, Castelbueno and Cefalu with our luggage. Both drivers were friendly and gave good information. Good communication and very professional. I would highly recommend.

          A tour well worth the cost because of the personalized service received.
          This excursion was well worth the cost because of the personalized service received. Our tour guide, Roberto, did an excellent of driving us through the beautiful countryside of Palermo and the mountains surrounding the city of Corleone, while giving us a history of the mafia in relation to the surrounding areas. Roberto parked as close as possible to the Mafia Museum because he knew I had difficulty walking and doing steps. It was a short walk to the museum where we were welcomed by the owner of the mafia house museum and he gave us a most colorful and informative tour of the museum/house room by room. The house did not appear that big from the outside but it was quite spacious and contained many interesting rooms filled with artifacts and photos from the Corleone family that lived there in the past. Afterwards we walked to the center of the village and had lunch, then were off to see the church and village of Monreale Duomo. After viewing the church we had free time to explore the shops and village around the church and get a delicious gelato. Afterwards, Roberto took us back to Palermo. Before dropping us off at our hotel he was kind enough to show us the meeting place for our next excursion as well as good shopping areas before dropping us off at our hotel. Roberto also stopped along the way during our tour and gave us ample time take pictures of the beautiful scenery and he took pictures with us in them.

          Thank you, Umberto!
          My wife and I had a fantastic day with Umberto, touring Segesta, Erice, and Trapani. He was informative, friendly, and flexible, allowing us to tailor our experience as we wished while offering helpful suggestions. But he was also very helpful, especially when we needed to swing by the airport to retrieve our lost luggage from the airline. Amazing! We can’t recommend Umberto high enough - he was FANTASTIC ❗️

          Fantastic Day out!
          The Tour was wonderful, Our tour guide Umberto was fantastic, he had so much knowledge of Sicily and all the surrounding areas. We started our drive to Corleone which flew by with all the stories Umberto shared. He could answer any questions we had for him. Once we arrived in Corleone we met up with other tourists from Umberto’s brother’s tour who joined us on the walk to the museum. Once we arrived we were greeted by Michelangelo and his son. Who owned the house. The tour was fantastic and very informative and interesting. After the museum Umberto took us to Monreale showing us where to go and the best places to eat! Once the day was finished he took us back to Palermo and told us where to go. The tour was fantastic and we would recommend to anyone!!

          A memorable day in Corleone and Monreale
          Umberto treated us to a special day in rural Sicily, exploring the history of the Mafia in Corleone and visiting one of the most special churches in Europe at his home town of Monreale. Umberto is a warm and very congenial host with a treasure of local knowledge and history which he dispenses with much charm and generosity. Highly recommended.

          Wonderful Day in Sicily
          There were eight of us wanting to visit Erice and Trapani from Palermo so we reserved a day with Umberto. It was a great decision on our part. We had an absolutely wonderful experience and learned a tremendous amount about Sicily and the towns and villages we visited. Umberto was an excellent driver and guide, very knowledgeable, friendly and courteous. He even introduced us to Maria Grammatico at the bakery where we were able to indulge in a variety of delicious sweets including her famous genovese cookies. From there we went to Trapani for lunch and then the salt flats before returning to Palermo. I highly recommend Umberto and his tour services.

          Foggy day at Segesta, Erice, Trapani
          It was a foggy and rainy day but Umberto and his brother walked with us through the fog to help us picture the beauty of Erice on a clear day. They know their way around Segesta and Trapani. It was our second tour with them and felt very comfortable. There was good balance with showing us the way and leaving us on our own to explore.

          Corleone party of 9 with kids
          We went on a private tour to Corleone. Our family had Umberto while my sister’s had Umberto’s brother. They were on time with clear instructions via whatsapp. It was a wonderful and fun day. Umberto was very knowledgeable and walked with us to destinations and places where locals go. Kids were very entertained with the mafia house. If you have plans to go in other towns like Cefalu and Monreale, it’s best you arrange with them as well. They can do all instead of doing different tour companies.

          Cefalù Sicily is a fantastic destination.
          Expensive taxi ride when you consider there wasn’t a guide along. The taxi driver was not a tour guide, but he was a great taxi driver.

        We were on a bus tour of Sicily, but stopped to view these salt flats in Enrice. It was absolutley amazing how this is done, and the centuries old technology mixed with the new. If you can at least do a drive-by, it is well worth the view. This is quite different to the salt flats or salt reclamation found in South America or Asia. In our area, we do salt mining, so different again. The pictures will tell a good part of the story..
