My wife and I had a great day taking part in this tour on the 20th July with Antonio as our guide. It was an exceptional experience and Antonio was very knowledgable in all aspects, ranging from Sicily in general to mafia history right through to the current day. The views we experienced in both Forz d' Agro and Savoca were stunning and would have been worth the trip alone but when you add in visiting the scenes used in the Godfather movies it just topped things off nicely. The tour ended with lunch at a lovely restaurant in Savoca with pasta, wine and coffee where we were able to have a chat with Antonio and the other couples who were also taking part in the tour which was nice.

Very interesting excursion for fans of the Godfather saga. It fell a little short for me because the truth is that I expected more from the visit to the stages, but it is true that once you are in them and they explain everything to you, it seems scarce/short and perhaps you expected to see more, although very interesting . The guide Valerio gave us a lot of information and made constant references to the movies. It was very very good. We went to eat pasta to the norm at a place in Savoca and very well attended. Great transportation too.

Carlos was an excellent guide. This was our first day and we learnt so much from him, not only about the mafia and the godfather but about the island and Sicilian life. Some very slow gently walking at each destination stopping regularly. He was excellent as not tiring us out. Overall we highly recommend

Great experience on The Godfather tour. Our tour guide Valerio was great. Highly recommend doing the tour with this company. Excellent !!!

Our guide Antonio was brilliant, a very nice man with lots of knowledge to share - good driver to : )
