Andrea G.

Mascalucia, Catania, Italy

Hello, I'm Andrea, a native Sicilian born and raised up between the Sicilian saltwater and the Etna Volcano slope.

My passion for adventure, hiking, and sportfishing together always pushed me to walk the extra mile, exploring and interpreting lots of hidden spots of the Sicilian territory. Doing this I met a lot of bizarre local people and discovered extraordinary forgotten paths, now part of each itinerary.   My Architect and Uban planner background if useful when it comes to design new itineraries and understand the layers of history in our towns!
My passion and part of my work is the sportfishing, both from shore and from the boat. I love to take guests to my world sometimes, teaching them, for example, how to fish for octopus barehanded!
To guide travelers to discover my island, for me is not just a job, this is the greatest opportunity I got in my life. And luckily for them, I put all my passion for showing the beauty of Sicily!On the other side, this work gives the chance to meet to exchange with beautiful people, turning yourself in another person, day after day. I love this.
The eastern side of Sicily is spectacular. A super active volcano that dominates a gulf with dark blue waters, Etna; an epic city with a uniquely charming atmosphere, because of its "layers" still visible underneath and above the ground level, Catania; eternal towns, lived and traveled from millennia, like Taormina, Acitrezza, Siracusa and so on; spectacular surroundings full of nature, traditions, and legends. I could go on and on, but the best to do now is just to invite you to see all this with your eyes!I'm available to fully customize or design an itinerary following your preferences, so, feel free to contact and ask.
I guide tours in English, Spanish, Italian or Sicilian if you like!
