We had the most wonderful time in Sicily. Our tour company Ape Tour Cinisi led by the knowledgeable Umberto were excellent. We were taken to the best spots for the best cannoli and other delights. The trip to Erice and Trapani was simply breathtaking. We will be back and we will most certainly use this tour company again.

We were fortunate to have Umberto and Christian as our drivers from Ape Tour N. C. C. These guys were so easy to get along with that we felt like we were with old friends. Our English speaking guide Salvatore, was just amazing and deeply knowledgeable about the history, (ancient) politics and geology of the places we visited. We were so excited to have such wonderful people for our tour, that we immediately booked another full-day trip to Erice with them for the very next day. I just can't say enough about Erice and Castelbuono, two medievale towns that we discovered with Umberto and Salvatore. Once again the guys were splendid. We couldn't help but book them once more for our trip to the airport, where we left for home. We whole heartedly recommend that you ask for Christian or Umberto to be your driver and Salvatore as your guide from Ape Tour. You too will be posting your best review like we are doing here.

Grazie mille, siete stati molto gentili, per noi è stato un grande piacere incontrarvi e conoscervi. Siamo felici di avervi mostrato le bellezze della nostra isola. Speriamo di poterci rivedere in futuro, e magari per molto più tempo 😉. Grazie un abbraccio a sua moglie e suo figlio e in particolare a te. Alla prossima saluti dalla Sicilia

We did a private tour of Castelbuono and Cefalu. Our driver was friendly and provided history as we drove to the destinations (he was 30 mins late picking us up in the morning to leave for the trip). Castelbuono was on of my favorite towns we visited this entire trip. It is a cute, sustainable mountain town where donkeys pick up the recyclables and the locals set up chairs on the sidewalk for afternoon chats. The castle itself is beautiful, and currently functions as a modern art museum. I was more impressed by the town itself. All the food is sourced locally, and is delicious (they also provided us with many free samples). We ate lunch at this little shop owned by a husband and wife--- the food was very fresh and they were so kind to us. If I lived in Sicily, I would live in this little town. Cefalu was ok. It was cloudy/rainy when we got there so we didn't really get to enjoy the beach (although the beach space looked very small). It was very touristy (lots of people on the streets and lots of shopping). The photos I saw prior to visiting Cefalu showed all these colorful boats in the sea; we did not see them. There is a gate with love locks on the pier, which was cool.

Really enjoyed the tour. They took us to see the Sicilian countryside where the origins of the Italian mafia began. As the day went on, our driver Umberto and English speaking guide, Joe were happy to answer questions, extend our time at stops or change routes. Would reccomend as a way to escape the crowds of the city and have an informative tour of parts of Sicily you might not otherwise see.

Umberto was a great host and extremely knowledgeable. He kept us up to date about everything we were passing and always let us stop and take photos of things that interested us. We almost didn’t do this tour because it was costly. But I’m so glad we didi. He offered that we could go to the beach for a couple of hours in Cefalù which was perfect for us. We had been wanting to go to the beach and it was perfect. We had lunch in Castlebuono at a shop where they treated us like family. Everyone seems to know Umberto and roll out the red carpet. This was a fantastic day!
