The highlight of a long holiday in Europe, a memory for life, a precious part of our education: this is how I would rate our week with Giorgio Calo as our driver-guide on a December trip from Palermo, to Taormina and Syracuse and the towns of the Sicilian baroque. There was not a question on history and art that he couldn’t answer as a graduate in cultural tourism, and I’m a history graduate myself. He knew every mosaic, every Medieval tower, every Roman or Byzantine mosaic. He steered us to excellent restaurants- and not the expensive Michelin choices. And he was an excellent driver. Would absolutely use him again.

4 of my friends and I recently took a full 10 days Sicily tour with Giorgio. Though there weren't much reviews online on Giorgio and his company (did quite a bit of research), based on the reviews we read here and the reasonable quotation he offered, we decided to go ahead to do the tour with him. We are so glad that we did not regret our decision. It was such an awesome and meaningful trip for us - we learnt so much from Giorgio about his beloved homeland as we traveled from Palermo, Tripani, Agrigento, Modica, Noto to Siracuse and Catania (just to name a few places). Giorgio is definitely not stingy in sharing his knowledge with us - from the history of places, churches and monuments to even the crops and plants that are growing in Sicily. The information he shared made us appreciate the lovely island that we chose to visit even more. The meals at the restaurants he recommended for lunch and dinner were too delicious too! Thanks Giorgio for bringing us around and making the trip so effortless and extremely memorable for us!

We were the other couple with HEC140 below and fully agree with his review. Giorgio's command of English is excellent; he even picked up some of our slang words, such as boondocks, and used it the next day. His knowledge of Sicily goes well beyond history; on short notice he arranged a wonderful lunch and wine tasting at Gambino Winery. It's very apparent he loves his Sicily and wants you to understand why.

We had the good fortune to have Giorgio Cali as our guide and driver for six days in Sicily. He picked the four of us in Catania to visit Mt Aetna and regional sites especially Siracusa.Then we drove down to Valley of Temples and the Vila. We ended up in Palermo with a complete walking and drive to Palermo. Final day to Segesta. No doubt I left out several sites, but for each he is a fount of knowledge on history, Archeologica and geography. Always on time and guiding us as he drove the Mercedes, we all concluded we had the finest guide Sicily offered. I wish I had done this trip earlier in my career to give depth to my own university instruction. Giorgio became our friend throughout and we were sad to say goodbye. He loves Sicily and so did we as we left
