Denise was the most awesome guide ever. Her knowledge and passion for the history of the area of country of Sicily was enormous and very helpful. I was most excited to come to Sicily because of this tour and it did not disappoint. I would recommend this to anyone considering a godfather tour. The Sicilian lunch and wine was incredibly delicious and fresh. Thank you again Denise for an awesome afternoon.

This tour was a major bucket list item for my husband, I went along because it was important to him. Ended up being an incredible day for both of us. Carlos was a fantastic guide and is so good at what he does. So many interesting facts and stories about the towns we visited. I can’t wait to come back to Sicily to spend some more time in both those towns and find another tour to do with Carlos.
