I slotted Sicily in on our vacation from mainland Italy just so my husband who is a die-hard fan of the Godfather movies could spend Father's Day in one of the best places ever. Of course, this perfect trip for my husband wouldn't have been possible without Alessio, the most informative and interesting guide I think that we have ever had! We were picked up from our B&B on time in a very nice Mercedes van that fit our crew of seven most comfortably. We had two friends of our children with us who had never seen any of the Godfather movies and Alessio even had them interested and anticipating watching the movies when they returned home. Alessio never rushed us at any of the locations which was most appreciated, instead it felt like we were out with an old friend for the day. He was very attentive to our needs and definitely well liked by everyone that we met or ran into with him. This tour was seven of the best hours that we spent on our vacation and we will be back to see Alessio again!
A guide and tour that exceeded our expectations by far. A memorable day was spent in Sicily thanks to Alessio Patanè who does not only converse well in English, but also is a master in subject knowledge. From the pickup to the drop off at our hotel was a 11/10 experience. For 'Godfather' lovers this is a must tour. For everyone else this is a golden opportunity to become acquainted with The Godfather in a very special manner. I would like to commend Alessio on being accommodating to everyones needs, on his sound advice regarding all aspects of the day and his exceptional gift to make his guests feel at ease.
Our guide Chiara was very knowledgeable and an expert in both the ancient and more recent history of the region. She was excellent A great driver, Claudio was very patient and a very capable driver. We loved ever minute of the day from visiting the markets in Catania to Mt Etna, Castelmola and the beautiful Taormina Thank you
Wonderful, i was the only one and Alessio made sure i have a great time. He explained me all the details where the filming of Godfather took place. We had coffee and light lunch with dessert. Since we had some time left he took me Taormina again as in the last trip i could not explore it well. Highly recommended tour
Our guide met us at our Cruise port and took us to our air conditioned van. Our guide was knowledgeable and enthusiastic. Our group of 6 enjoyed the tour guide, transportation, information, and views of Castelmola, Mt. Etna and Toarmina (including Greek-Roman Amphitheater). We had ample time for shopping and lunch.
