    We took this tour on the day of our 60th anniversary. Our guide Natasha met us at our hotel. Natasha and our driver Atimo were training a new guide and driver, Veronica and Mirko. We were the only tourists , we had a very special private tour. Natasha took pictures of us with our camera in all the special locations, now we have a permanent record of our memorable day. Natasha was very knowledgeable about Savoca and everything about the Godfather. She also was very knowledgeable about the Volcano, Cantania and all the areas we visited. Atimo was also very knowledgeable, commenting on different aspects of Sicily. Unfortunately the free time allotted for our stop in Taormina was during the period that all the stores were closed for a long lunch. As we had been to Taormina two days before, we found a nice place to have lunch, enjoy the sun and people watch. With fewer people around we were able to go back to some of the places a second time. Natasha and Atimo, Thank You!!

This was the best tour I have ever experienced. Marco was our guide and he was so friendly, personal and pleasant. He shared many interesting facts about the Godfather movie I have never heard of and I am a big fan of the movie. If you don't remember every scene, he can find a quick video to show you to refresh your memory. We learnt a lot and saw some beautiful authentic parts of Sicily. We even got to meet the owner of the Bar Vitelli. The whole experience exceeded my expectations. It was hands down my beat day in Sicily. I would recommend it to anyone.
