Danilo is a fine man and did a fine job of giving us a wonderful overview of the area. He is rich in knowledge. The challenge we had was in understanding Danilo. His accent is quite strong. So that got in the way of us being able to absorb all he said. He offered to take more pictures of my wife and me together than any other guides ever offered. Showed us some phenomenal vistas. Oh, and a splendid restaurant for lunch.

We had wonderful tour's in Taormina with our tour guide Danilo. We took the Godfather tour for my husband's birthday and it was fantastic. Danilo did above and beyond making my husband's day wonderful with a terrific lunch at a local authentic Sicilian restaurant . We also did a tour of Mt Etna and Danilo was very informative, I would definitely recommend tours by locals and if your in the Taormina area and ask for Danilo .

Danilo is a great guide. He knows his subject well and listens to his guests to follow their needs and desires. We enjoyed our tour! Recommend!
Danilo was our driver and guide for a wonderful 3 days trip to Sicily. Round trip from Catania Traumina Randazzo Troina Enna and back to Catania. He is an excellent responsible and calm driver which guided us, gave us a lot of information and stories about Sicily and its history. He is a real Gentleman, very pleasant, always on time and did every effort to make our trip perfect.
Mark DoyleUnited States
Danilo made our day in Sicily unforgettable. He worked with me before the trip to build an itinerary that gave us the highlights of Taormina but then took us to the small town of Savoca when the Godfather was filmed. He arranged lunch at a fabulous local trattoria and explained well the history of the area. Thanks Danilo

Danilo drove us around Sicily (Catania, Mt. Etna, Taormina, Siracusa, Modica, Ragusa, Piazza Amerina, Agrigento, Castelbuono, Cefalu, Monreale, Segesta, Salt Planes of Trapani, Erice, and Palermo) for 5 days. He was pleasant and courteous and gave good summaries of the history of the cities/areas we visited. A daily good supply of bottled water was very much appreciated.
David T.United States
Danilo provided excellent service driving us to the four corners of eastern Sicily. His Mercedes was very comfortable and his driving skills top notch. He was very knowledgeable and able to schedule a spur of the moment wine tasting event. At the end of the day, when other guides might have simply taken us back to the ship, he volunteered to drive us to Casemole, the highest peak in the area, for more outstanding views. We highly recommend him.
David EnglishUnited States
Danilo was a very courteous and attentive guide for our tour to Mt Etna, Taormina and Savoca. The 6 of us enjoyed his Sicilian stories and promptness. He was kind enough to modify his normal tour by adding a quick stop in Savoca to see some godfather film locations and of course, some refreshment at Bar Vitelli. I would definitely use his services again on another trip to Messina, Thank you Danilo for a great day!

Kristi GreerUnited States
This tour with Danilo was absolutely amazing- by far our favorite thing that we did in Europe. Danilo is funny, informative, and really tailors the tour around what you want to do!
Susan DubrofUnited States
Danilo was wonderful! Not only is he kind and thoughtful, but his knowledge of Mt. Etna and Sicilian history (all the way back to the Turks, Byzantines, Moors and beyond...not to mention Greek, Roman and modern day) is amazing! He truly is a walking encyclopedia of historical facts... all of which he made come alive for us. He was able to make some last minute changes to our itinerary which perfectly coincided with our interests.
Michael CartolanoUnited States
Our tour with Danilo was wonderful. Very professional and soooo knowledgeable about Sicily. We really enjoyed our time with him. He wanted to show us everything...maybe slightly too much. All in all, just great!!
Stephen NashUnited States
Danilo is an excellent safe driver with a very clean black Mercedes sedan. We enjoyed our transfer from Taormina to Piazza Armerina with him. He arranged for an excellent guide to meet us to give the tour of Villa Romana de Casale.
Robert HokeUnited States
Danilo was very well informed and flexible we adjusted the tour to insure returning to our ship on time. The small local stops recommended by the guide greatly enhanced the experience
Barbara SternUnited States
Danilo is very knowledgeable and very friendly! We were 6 adults who enjoyed our time which Danilo organized very well! Our van was quite comfortable and Danilo was easy to understand and very patient with us! His suggestion not to take the cable cars to the top of Etna proved quite right! Our time spent on this tour was perfectly arranged!
Nan MarshallUnited States
Great tour guide. Danilo picked up in his immaculate Mercedes and led us through the best of Noto, Syracuse, and Ortigia. He managed to please all 6 of us - the foodie, the archaeologist, the artist, the historian, the nature lover and the sociologist. I highly recommend.
Raymond D.United States
overall this tour is mostly driving with a lot of quiet time
We just spent a wonderful week in Sicily. Our tour was customized and we were so fortunate to have Daniel C as our guide. He was an absolute delight! He was fluent in English so it was easy to carry on a conversation. He was very knowledgeable about all the places we visited and went out of his way to ensure that we got the most out of our experience to Sicily. He was always prompt, polite, professional, and a real gentleman. Our trip was better than we could have possibly imagined!
Danilo was a very helpful and accommodating guide. His knowledge of Sicily and all its byways was awesome. He also knew all the best restaurants. We had a great experience.
Cindy Winnjohnson city, TENNESSEE, United States
Danilo provided a great day in Tamorina and visit to Mount Etna.
Joe CannellaUnited States
Beyond my expectations, over the last week I have been given a true insider's look at Sicily, and on top of it Danilo was able to uncover the birth records of my great grandfather Antonino, hidden in a 132 year old book in the tiny town of Siculiana. With very little information to go on, he spent hours in the records office, determined to help me uncover information about my past, information I could not have found without him. Truly unforgettable, I highly recommend booking with Danilo!
Danilo is the best tour guide/driver ever! Friendly, courteous, a safe and patient driver and fun. He knows Sicily very well,recommended great local guides on our customized tour and his recommendations for places to visit and to eat were always excellent, both in large and small cities. Danilo always helped with our luggage, kept his car clean, was flexible, made sure we were comfortable and always was on time. He speaks very good English and knows Sicilian history very well. We highly recommend Danilo.
We were absolutely satisfied with Danilo. He is a very kind and well-informed and also a good driver. Without his help and experience we were not able to see so many things in 3 days. His suggested places (restaurants, bar) was also perfect. We definitely recommend him!

Dale DavisUnited States
We cannot recommend Danilo highly enough. He is a superb guide. Very knowledgeable, but also very in tune with our needs, interests, and time spent on every site. He is extremely intelligent, and knows just about everything there is to know about what we are viewing. His touring car was immaculate (late model Mercedes) and he was attentive to our temperature and bathroom needs. He carried complimentary water bottles and tried in every way possible to please us. We commend him highly.
Lynn ReillyUnited States
Danilo is an excellent guide. He is patient and kind and showed us more than we had asked to see. He had a lot of information to share with us which we appreciated so much. He is also a very safe driver which made the day more relaxing. We had such a wonderful day with him. It was truly a special and memorable day.
Paul FacellaUnited States
Clearly this was a 5 out of 5. Very professional and he went above and beyond with my family search. would highly recommend Danilo to everyone.
Nancy JanikUnited States
We have traveled for the last 12 years. Danilo was the best tour guide we ever had. Not only was he professional, courteous, knowledgeable and thoughtful. Danilo anticipated our every desire. This was a genealogy tour for my husband. He was highly impressed by Danilo's attention to detail. He arranged a wine tour at Tasca D'Amerita which was the highlight of our time in Sicily! If you want the very best tour in Sicily, book Danilo!

Anthony D'AmicoUnited States
We thoroughly enjoyed our tours to Noto & Syracuse with Danilo; he took a lot of time making sure we had a thorough background and appreciation for the wonderful sites we visited. Overall, we had a great day filled with many lasting memories thanks to Danilo.
Armando OliverUnited States
Danilo is a very experienced driver and guide. He knows the history and facts of every place. He will help you design a custom made itinerary to make the most of your time in Taormina. He also knows how to take the best pictures. Danilo is one of the best tour guides I have had in Europe. He is not in a hurry, he wants your to get to know and enjoy his home, Sicily.
Karen HollenbeckUnited States
Danilo did a great job of introducing our group to the island. He was prompt and very knowledgeable about all the sites. At the end of the tour, we felt well satisfied that we had seen and learned about the major attractions. Would definitely use him again and recommend him to anyone visiting the area.
Joseph PurdyUnited States
Danilo was the perfect guide for our visit to Sicily! We were there to visit the towns and cemeteries where our ancestors lived and died. He provided excellent commentaries along the way, historical information on the towns where they lived, and helped us find their homes and graves. When we met with distant cousins (whom we had never met) he joined us for the lunch that they prepared, and and interpreted as none of us spoke Italian. What was a 12 hour day for Danilo made a lifetime of memories for us.
James ToonUnited States
Let me start with the ONLY positive, the van is very nice and new. If you want a taxi, then this is the tour for you. The 'guide' has very limited English (example, when asked 'how many different times has Syracuse been conquered, Danilo replied 'yes, the grass is green around here'. I specifically asked if Danilo would give a detailed explanation of the sights we were going to, and he replied that he would. The explanation was 'This is where we are on the map'. The worse 'tour' we have ever had.
Michael SelheimUnited States
Danilo was very professional and very knowledgeable about Mt Etna and the history of the volcano. His recommendations were spot on and he was very attentive to my needs. Thank you very much for the amazing excursion and the tour!!
