Mimmo was the absolute perfect guide. He was knowledgeable and sensitive to our needs. I never mentioned to him that i have difficulty navigating due to a health condition. He noticed my husband helping me and i watched Mimmo adjust our route to be most accommodating. He was pleasant the entire day. I highly recommend anyone contemplating a guide for Sicily to let Mimmo show you his Sicily! It is a very enjoyable. We are grateful to him.
