Valentina and her excellent driver Dario gave us a very nice tour of Corleone as well as surrounding areas. She picked us up at our hotel in Cefalù which was very convenient for us (some tour guides make you meet them in Palermo). She was flexible and took special care to customize our tour by suggesting ideas that made the most sense for us. Specifically, she took us to the street where my grandmother was born and helped translate a conversation with some of the locals who currently live there.
