We have just completed a sensational week with Paolo. The trip exceeded our expectations - accomodation was first class, each hotel was a different experience. Paolo patiently imparted his deep knowledge and love for Sicily - perhaps a little hard to do with three crazy not so young Aussies. He drove skillfully through the narrow streets while we enjoyed the... More

My husband and I spent 15 days with Paolo and one day with Luca. From the second we got off the plane until we went home, I never could have seen all of Sicily if it wasn't for Paolo. From the hotels to all the tours. The beautiful car and van Paolo drove us around in, the restaurants he recommended.... More

We had a fantastic time in Sicily thanks to expert planning and execution by HandySicily's principal Paolo Mortellaro. Paolo made sure our accommodation was first class - extremely nice and comfortable and with the most obliging staff. His knowledge of the history of his island home was outstanding. He was not only our driver [and a good one at that]... More

I am so happy that I booked HandySicily for my two-week trip. Paolo's knowledge of the island definitely made the trip more rewarding and much less stressful than if I had driven myself. From the time I was met at the Palermo airport until Paolo dropped me off at Catania's airport, I was able to rely on his excellent organization,... More

Paolo arranged a sensational 11 day trip for us around a fantastic island. He is well organised,courteous and an excellent driver. He is very knowledgeable and considerate and yet very flexible. His arrangements for hotels and restaurant recommendations were always brilliant. You could not wish for better . I can't really praise him enough.

Handy Sicily and our wonderful guide, Paolo, made our five day tour of eastern Sicily one of our most memorable trips. 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
