Our tour began when Paolo met us in Catania and it ended at the Pozzallo ferry terminal on our way to our next site, Malta.. Every day was another exciting and informative adventure, ranging from ancient Greek and Roman... More

Paolo is a wonderful and friendly man. I made a booking for a driver from Siracusa to Ragusa with a stop in Noto. Paolo arranged a private guide for 2 hours in Noto. Price was good too. I then booked him again a few days later from Ragusa to Palermo. Great drive and was comfortable with his driving and experience... More

My daughter, wife and I visited Sicily in October and Paolo Mortellaro arranged a wonderful 8 day sightseeing driving trip. He arranged a driver and guides at all the major sites of Sicily and I think he did a magnificent job. We saw all the major places and ate well in restaurants that were recommended. The accommodations were all very... More

Paolo and Luca made our Best of Sicily tour a memorable experience. Both are excellent guides who obviously enjoy sharing their knowledge .From our first day when Paola changed our itinerary due to impending weather thus allowing us to enjoy Mt Etna, we knew we were in good hands. Comfortable travel in good vehicles and all accommodation was of a... More

From the friendly face that greeted us to the last arrivederci Paolo Mortellaro was a knowledgeable and caring guide. He was instrumental in helping us find my family's town and was the interpreter that made the communications possible. We placed our trust in his judgement and was not disappointed in sites, accommodations , places to eat or souvenirs to buy.... More

Touring Sicily via Handy Sicily, in the person of Paolo Mortellaro, is a fabulous experience. I have only good things to say about my 10 day trip, which began in Catania and ended in Palermo, and hit all the highlights in between. Paolo is a wonderful guide and driver. His car was comfortable. And air conditioned. My friend and I... More

We traveled by car through Taormina, Mt. Etna, Catania, along the Mediterranean coast, ending in Palermo. Paola was knowledge about the history, culture and customs of the island; he was... More

Sicily has a cornucopia of Greco-Roman, Arab-Norman and Baroque architecture, all within a small island. It has an incredibly beautiful, wild, natural environment, friendly helpful people and luscious food. Paolo helped me design a customised, solo tour for April- May, using the lovely Agriturismo Leone as a base in the SE for 5 nights, the suberb Serpotta 10 apartment for... More

We have just returned from a wonderful 6 day tour of Sicily with Handy Sicily Tours. We cannot speak highly enough of our driver/guide - Paolo Mortarello who, apart from being an excellent and safe driver was unfailingly good humoured, polite and caring of two older ladies. We stayed in two excellent Agritourismo as well as in good quality hotels... More
