A Recent Review of this tour

Mimmo was the best tour guide we have experienced. He is very knowledgeable and personable. He gives insights of the history of the country and the current government policies that shape the country. Our tour was the most informative and enjoyable experience on our tour of Sicily and Italy. In fact, the Sicily tour was the highlight of the trip. I highly recommend Mimmo.
