With a Sicilian husband we arrived in Trapani and felt the Sicilian culture straight away - the food, the weather, the people, the respect, the amazing atmosphere. We met Aldo, Mr Trapani on our second night at a beautiful bar in the streets of Trapani - Garibaldi Cinquantotto Bar and the rest is history. The next day Aldo took us to Erice and Sagesta and finished off eating at a stunning seafood restaurant (I forgot the name). Aldo is a true Sicilian, full of heart and passion and we had the most memorable part of our trip with him. My husband Joe and I were so grateful to have experienced Trapani and the Sicilian culture through Aldo and the locals. Thank you Aldo!

I booked Aldo for airport transfers and a day trip to Palermo with my family of 8. He is a very nice guy, reliable and excellent at his job, speaks very good english (pretty rare in Sicily), and helped our trip run smoothly.
Trapani is a really nice town too, very romantic, we'll definitely be returning sometime in the future..without all our kids :)

We went to Porto Palo with Think Sicily but stayed two nights in Trapani from where our charming hotel (Residence Porta delle Botteghelle) sent Aldo to collect us from the airport. The next day he took us to Erice. The day after he drove us to our very remote villa near Porto Palo (100 miles south). A week later he collected us and returned us to the airport via a couple of hours in Marsala.
At all times Aldo was a brilliant person to have around. Excellent english, sharp humour, intelligent, absolutely trustworthy, reliable, charming, a source of good recommendations and always entertaining. Very knowledgeable about the Island and its history, never a boor or boring. A two hour drive with a chatty driver is my idea of hell - a two hour drive with Aldo is a holiday in itself. Highly and unreservedly recommended.

Prepared a one day tour with Aldo before leaving for the holiday. We had very good communication with him via email and arranged everything beforehand. Aldo is very fluent in English and though we could communicate with him in Italian, he insisted in using English. And that was very fine with us. I cannot understand why he got one terrible review saying that he cannot speak English. He does speak English and very well indeed. One has to be careful not to mix Aldo Trapani's (his real surname) "trapanitours.com" with another company which bears the name "trapanitours.it". Two different companies altogether.

He recommended to us a full day tour visiting le Saline, Segesta and Erice and we took it up for a very reasonable price. It saved us all the hustle and bustle of looking for the right tours.

Aldo is a very knowledgeable guide and knows his history very well. So it was enjoyable all the way. We even complimented the tour with lunch on our last stop in Erice. He can also recommend a few spots in Trapani where to enjoy the holiday.

This was a five star experience and we highly recommend Aldo for his services.

Arranged by our hotel to pick us up at the airport, Aldo, of Trapani Tours, was waiting for us even though the flight was over an hour late! During the 20 minute drive to our hotel, Aldo filled us in on many facts about Trapani as well as Sicily. From recommendations for dining, shopping, and accommodations--to history and local cultural insider tips--Aldo made us feel completely welcome in his lovely town of Trapani. Because Aldo is friendly, enthusiastic, positive and professional, we hired him to drive us to Palermo...and we weren't disappointed! The 1.5 hour trip was comfortable, scenic and informative. Aldo even helped us with our Italian! Our time with Aldo left us with wonderful memories. We look forward to returning to Trapani at which time we will have Trapani Tours be our official guide. Well worth the cost, Trapani Tours is time and money well-spent.
