This was a great tour! Alessio was very knowledgeable, friendly, and enthusiastic about the tour. There were 7 of us and he spoke Spanish and English and alternated in between. We visited the towns of Savoca and Forza D’Agro. The tour lasted about 5 hours. There was definitely some walking uphill, but very doable. We had time to eat/drink at Bar Vitelli and then also at the small restaurant in Forza in the end. Best cannolis in town… and also a type of street food that I can’t remember the name, but was really good! There was also enough time for souvenir shopping. Plenty of history from the movies. We were also lucky because we had a film major in our group and a marriage proposal. It was a great experience. I highly recommend this unforgettable tour. Lots of fun!

Alessio was the perfect guide for this trip and he turned an interesting tour into an unforgettable experience. It was a real thrill seeing the local locations for all three of the Godfather films and it was topped of beautifully by a visit to the stunning Castello Degli Schiavi (this was an optional extra). Our host there was the amazing Baron who really brought everything to life with his stories and hospitality. What an delightful character and a true gentleman. During the trip we stopped off for various refreshments which made the trip a superbly relaxed and informative day out. Thank you Alessio for some great memories.

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.
