Monreale and Cefalu was the best part of our stay at Palermo,Michael was friendly and helpfull and very knowledgeable. He gave us lots of historical information about Monreale and Cefalu with plenty time to enjoy both places,some reviews say that this tour is only like a taxi to take you there,but our opinion is that gives you the freedom to walk on your own,with all the information and direction from friendly Michael. We had a great day! this is one of the best of a half day tours ,we can't say the same about another tours in palermo. Thank you very much Michael!!!!
Our driver Michael is very personable and knowledgeable. The sights are well worth the money. You should be aware that you are purchasing the services of a knowledgeable driver who will get you to the sight, explain the history, and give you some tips for seeing the sight. This is not a "guided tour" which worked fine for us but might not be what you want. Our only complaint is that we didn't spend enough time at Monreale to really be able to absorb it. Otherwise the service was excellent.
Had a great day and this was a great way to see two cities in one day without a rental car. I reserved last minute and with some assistance from GetYourGuide, was able to confirm my pickup. However, it would be nice to have as a 3/4 day tour, with more time in Cefalù so you don’t have to choose between lunch, sightseeing, and the beach, arriving back in Palermo in the mid to late afternoon.
It has been a good experience. And I recommend that people try to get a tour, it was fantastic but did not have enough time visiting Monreale and Cefalù but made the most out of it. We only have a certain amount of time to breath the air and to also observe the chatedral in Monreale that had a special history. But if we could, we would go back there with our driver Micheal.
The driver was very pleasant and drove exceptionally well. Both Monreal and Cefalu are very interesting places to visit and absorb some of the history and beauty of Sicily. I was a bit disappointed that the guide didn't accompany us in to either Monreal or Cefalu, but left us entirely to our own devices.
