Excellent tour by Alessio, an exceptional guide. The first stop on our day trip was at Bar Vitale. The Cappuccino I drank was the best I have ever had. From there it was to the Church in Savoca. Afterwards a short drive to Forza D Argo, which was used for Corleone in all 3 films. We took in these sights then had a nice lunch at a local Cafe which the movies production staff ate at. Pictures of the Town's filming locations adorned one wall. We added the extra option of a visit to Castello Degli Schiavi, Don Tommasino's Villa in the trilogy. It was there we were welcomed by the owner, The Baron. A very friendly and warm host, who gave us a tour of his home and showed us some very rare production items. The prop in front of his mansion made the hair stand up on the back of my neck with excitement. Make sure you add this on your tour as only a few operators are able to arrange this Alessio is one of them. This tour was the highlight of my trip to Sicily. Highly recommended.
Alessio was a great guide for the Godfather tour - a true film enthusiast with great knowledge of the region and production details. Despite pouring rain during parts of the tour it was a great experience and we could chat about a lot of film details, not only about the Godfaher trilogy but movies in general. We got to see prominent places of the movie as well as more hidden and secret spots which only true experts know. I really can recommend a private tour with Alessio when you are a fan of the Godfather trilogy or even as a movie fan in general.
This tour was so fun! Antonio Chirco was hands down the best tour guide we have ever had!! He went out of his way to take us to different places he thought we would love. He is incredibly knowledgeable about history and architecture! He made this day amazing!! The roads are very windy and Antonio stoped at a pharmacy so we could get motion sickness medication. Lunch was delicious!
The tour is fascinating .. it goes from cinema (set of the Godfather) to art (Taormina and its wonderful theater) to the breathtaking views of Castelmola .. An added value: the guide Carlos, nice, very cultured, available and ready to satisfy all our curiosities.
Fantastic day with Alessio and we greatly enjoyed the tour and the chat.
