          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.

          Corleone tour
          Umberto was very knowledgeable about Palermo and the surrounding towns. He told us many stories about the mafia and history of the buildings we saw.

          Must Do!!!!!!
          Great tour and not to be missed. Very interesting if you want to know a lot of the history of Sicily and the background of the Mafia. Our tour guide was very informative and has been living here his entire life. The private home tour in Corleone is very interesting and informative. It says museum on the description, but you actually get a guided tour of an ex mafia boss’s entire home. It was extremely interesting and the home has original finishes and interesting things that were recovered in the home that are original. The owner and guide of the tour is really amazing and is a character. On the way back we stopped in a beautiful suburb of Palermo and had lunch, and the outlook view over the city is amazing. There is also an UNESCO church we visited. This tour is a 5 star tour and very informative.

        An absolutely amazing tour! If you want to see the hidden gems of Palermo book this trip. The driver spoke good enough English, had wonderful recommendations and got us to all of our locations safely. I'm not sure if this is standard but we had an actual English-speaking guide included in this trip and he went with us to all the locations and give detailed history of the city. Should you be coming here on a cruise they are flexible enough on the itinerary to ensure you make your all-aboard time.

        I would suggest doing this tour on your first day in Palermo. Our driver, Christian, was friendly and excellent. Our guide, Joe, was also excellent. We learned a lot about the Palermo area, had time to tour Teatro Massimo, and enjoyed Monreale and Mondello. The info on San Rosalia was very interesting, and the views from the area near the shrine were stunning.
