    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!!

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

The best experience! A birthday gift for my husband but actually I enjoyed it very much as well. Our guide was so knowledgeable and accommodating. We were happy to do the Godfather tour and full day Etna with him.

Our guide Alessio is a very knowledgeable and well mannered person. The trip was fantastic and we loved every minute! Grazie!

Great tour, cool Italian guide. Trip duration was 4hours but it was enough
