Trip was really fun and finished with tasty food. I was the only person on this trip that haven’t seen Godfather movies and still enjoyed it. Actually, our guide (Rosario) was really nice and competent guide. After his stories I already bought few books about history of mafia and I’m planning on knowing more soon. Good job :) Definitely recommend this trip to everyone :)

A must do!

We had a wonderful day/ tour! From beginning to end, views spectacular, lunch was delicious, enjoyable and relaxing, The Godfather sets were so interesting to see. Our guide was very knowledgeable and provided us with so much information nor only about The Godfather scenes but also the history of the towns. This tour exceeded our expectations! So glad we decided to do this!

A very enjoyable learning experience

The actual experience was made very enjoyable by the knowledge and friendliness of our guide. The price was excessive compared to those offered in resort. Your reminder process did not account for a change of date arranged by the local provider. There was no offer of Dinner or wine tasting. Overall we would have been far better not booking through your service.
