Carlo was a wonderful tour guide who graciously accommodated our last minute request for a shorter tour to meet our travel restrictions! He is very knowledgeable about Sicilian and world history. His descriptions make the complex and rich history of this area very accessible to everyone. His English is superb, which was a real bonus for our group of 6 Americans. I would recommend Carlo for anyone searching for a warm guide with a deep reservoir of knowledge and experience!
