Private tour guide Giorgio

Giorgio C.

Palermo, Sicily, Italy

I deeply love my country and I have always tried to instill this love in my fellow travelers.

When I am guiding, my first aim is to go beyond stereotypes regarding Sicily and try to explain how rich is the Sicilian Culture thanks to the many people that have passed through the centuries and left signs of their own societies. You can find those traces in our monumental heritage but also in our language, in our habits and finally in our cuisine.
I have been working in tourism in Sicily for the last 18 years, as a Tour Escort first, then as an operator and finally as a guide. In the meanwhile, I obtained a degree in Cultural tourism at the University of Palermo, deepening history, art history, archaeology and Sicilian folklore.
I have a deep knowledge of both main and less visited Sicilian sites as well as I am always open to find new hidden gems to propose to my clients. When I am not touring Sicily with travellers, I am doing that with my friends!

Thanks to my fully licensed minivan I can take guests everywhere in Sicily, visiting beautiful cities or admiring natural beauties, both for one-day excursions and for multi-day tours.

I really enjoy ancestral tours, if your roots are in Sicily I will help you in finding them! We can visit together your home towns and even look for family records at local offices, churches, cemeteries etc.

Just decide where to go and relax, I will do the rest!

A Recent Review of this guide

We had a wonderful 1 and 1/2 days with Giorgio in Sicily. He was very interesting and had amazing knowledge of Sicily and its history. We would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone contemplating tours of Palermo and its surrounds. Well done Georgio!, we loved our time with you.
