Alessio was wonderful with his thorough architectural, archeological, historic, geological, environmental and gastronomic knowledge of Sicily. An excellent guide, remarkable for his passion and professionalism. He picked us up on time, respected covid19 measures and answered to all our questions. His style was engaging and he made us feel right at home with knowledge that we would not have found without him. I will certainly recommend him and would love to book another tour with him next time we will be visiting Sicily. Best guide we could wish for! Thank you!

Must do

This tour has everything if you are a fan of the series or wish to see some beautiful architecture then this trip is for you. The trip is a full day which unfortunately passes all too quickly, now to the main character Alessio your tour guide he is knowledgeable and passionate about his subjects which are certainly wide ranging. Alessio takes time to engage with all members of his group equally you are never rushed, he drives you personally between the sights with engaging commentary, his driving is also courteous and safe which I believe would matter to certain patrons. We visited a number of various film locations and sets on the day with a choice of places to visit. I would unreservedly recommend this trip both for its content and the guide, Alessio is the first guide that I have experienced who has genuinely engaged and interacted. Of note on the day, I did not feel well at one point and Alessio took the time to source a local pharmacy for me this ensured I had a great day.

A bit of fun if you've read the books or seen the TV series

Our second tour with Alessio from Sicily Grand Tours. Several stops on this tour taking in some of the filming locations for the TV series and, for us, a chance to see a little bit of cities/towns which we wouldn't otherwise have done ourselves. Stops in Modica, Scicli and Punta Secca with a chance to have lunch at Enzo's. Thoroughly enjoyable day.
