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!!
My family and I thoroughly enjoyed the Godfather Private Tour. Our tour guide, Marco was excellent!! He was very pleasant, very knowledgeable about The Godfather movies and shared very interesting insider tidbits about the movies. Marco was very enthusiastic, accommodating, welcoming to questions and really cared that we were enjoying the tour. Marco really went above and beyond what the average tour guide would offer. He was truly superb as a tour guide!!! To give you an example, Marco would offer to take pictures of my family and I at the significant points of the tour and he would go out of his way to take pictures at different angles so that we would have great memories of where we visited. I would highly recommend this tour and especially Marco as a tour guide!!!
My brother and I booked this tour while in Sicily, me being a massive godfather fan (Jim not so much). Our driver was the great Marco. He was incredibly knowledgeable, generous and patient. He was all about taking pictures and would stop everything he was doing just to capture the moment. I learned a lot more than I expected to, not only about the movie but about Sicilian culture in general. Marco was professional and a safe/smooth driver. I feel as if I made a friend at the end of our tour. He greeted us with fruit from his garden and bottled water. I highly recommend this tour. You will 100% get your moneys worth. Even if you aren’t a godfather fan. -Jack Magnotta
Wonderful tour! Marco was absolutely amazing!!! His love for the Sicilian towns visited and for the movie was very palpable and contagious. He was informative, thorough and detailed about every town visited and the specific places in which each scene of the movie was filmed. It was truly delightful. I recommend this tour highly to anyone interested in learning about not only the places the movie was filmed but also about authentic Sicilian lifestyle. A true gem. Loved it!!!
What a great experience! I booked this trip for my parents and they were blown away! This was the highlight of their trip to Sicily. Manuele was so polite and knowledgeable. He was also very considerate and even slowed down the walking pace for my dad who is a bit older. They couldn’t say enough good things about the experience and Manuele. The lunch was over the top delicious with even better scenery!
