He curated a perfect day- private winery tour in the country, lunch with an amazing view at buzzy Gambino, and wrapping up the day with the delicious wines, hospitality and breathtaking views at Gibellina.

This July 2021 my son gave me the best present I ever had, it was his gift for my 60th birthday. He took me to Sicily and Italy. I never expected a tour of my dream, my favorite movie in my life - The Godfather, he set up this tour with a private guide, the guide was just wonderful. As we drove there with him, he drove us through St. Theresa Riva, Forza D'Agro, and Savoca. He explained every area that the film was recorded, he had the film on his phone as he explained. I loved every minute of the tour. It was just wonderful. My dream came true, viewing and being in the same site the Godfather was filmed. I will always remember it. The lunch and dinner/wine were just great "delicioso" and the trip "bellisimo"."

* A traveler said: "We had a fantastic and informative time on this tour. As we were the only two people, our tour guide, Gioele, treated it as a private tour. He was an enthusiastic storyteller in sharing his knowledge of Sicily, anything from its history to current life. His explanations made the ride all the more pleasant. For our first winery visit, we had a passionate sommelier, who gave us a tour of the vineyard and winery and conducted the wine tasting. As I am a wine enthusiast, she keenly answered any questions I had regarding vine training, canopy management, wine production, maturation, etc. It was almost a private course in winemaking in Sicily. We had lunch in the second winery, and this tour accommodated for a vegan diet."

* A traveler said: "My wife and I took A private tour on Sunday, May 2, 2019 to Siracusa, Ortigia, and Noto. Our driver, Giuseppe, was on time, drove safely, and had a great personality. His car was clean and comfortable. He shared a tremendous amount of very interesting knowledge about the sites we visited. He attended to all of our needs. We had great conversation about many topics during the drive. Part of our trip was in pouring rain and Giuseppe made sure he dropped us off right at the entrance. He even gave us his own umbrella to use on the tour to keep us dry! It rained on and off during the day, and he was very flexible in allowing us to wait until the rain stopped so that we could use our time to maximize seeing the sites. When we return to visit Sicily, we will request Giuseppe to take us on another tour! I highly recommend Giuseppe for any private tour of Sicily. He is kind and very knowledgeable about the island of Sicily."

* A traveler said: "We met our guide from our cruise ship, we avoided paying for overly priced soulless cruise tours. It was immediately clear our guide would be showing us around 'his' city with pride and passion. We casually walked through the local markets seeing Catania in the raw, living and breathing the hustle and bustle of the fish and vegetable markets. We learnt about the rich often violent history of the city through a locals eyes, sipping the shortest espresso EVER! and sampling local fruit and cake. We returned to our cruise after a fascinating insight of a beautiful city, would highly recommend"
