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!

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.

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.

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!

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.

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!

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!

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

Date: May 29/16

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.
