Mimmo is the guide to have for custom touring in Sicily. Prompt, courteous, extremely knowledgeable and funny from my point of view. I booked a full day tour of Selinuite, Segesta and Erice. Covered all the bases plus lunch in a quaint, off the beaten path bakery/deli to sample some "authentic" Sicilian food with great cannolis. Highly recommend!
