This tour was wonderful. Giorgio was extremely knowledgeable. We went to small towns in Sicily where my great grandparents/grandparents lived. He spoke with the locals to find out as much information as possible regarding my heritage. He was punctual and had the entire day planned. Everything worked very smoothly. I couldn't have imagined anything better.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Linda, and I will keep you posted on the potential cousin in Palermo!

It was really worth it to have a guide who knew how to get around in this very busy city and where to park! We were amazed to visit the Chapel of St. Rosalina and enjoy the breathtaking views. The Opera House was beautiful and we were lucky to hear a little snatch of music! Giorgio helped us with our search for the best cannoli in Sicily and chose some lovely places for us to eat them. We visited some wonderful cathedrals and enjoyed the seaside views! Great day!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Karen, in Italy we say "thank you a thousand" to mean really a lot. Well, I thank you a billion!

Tour: #557209, Mount Etna and Taormina Private Tour from Cefalù - Full Day, Cefalu, Sicily, Italy    view tour
Date: Sep 8/19

Mount Etna was definitely worth the trip! Giorgio had been there many times before and made our ticket purchases easy. He rode with us to each elevation and assisted us (seniors) if needed. Giorgio is always ready with history and information to make tours come alive. Taormina was a beautiful town to visit! We loved the shops, the church , and the beautiful views. Giorgio even made dinner a special event. He selects the perfect restaurants in the most interesting places.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I have indeed loved to select the best restaurants because I know how you love and appreciate good, local food :)

Giorgio picked four of us up at our Villa and drove us to Cefalu. He had researched four ancestors. We visited the graveyard and located some names that I feel sure were my father's cousins. The Registry Office in Cefalu presented the "Old Books" and documented records located. After lunch, we visited Old Town and Giorgio translated as we met a possible relative. We even visited near-by towns where relatives not located in the "Old Books" may have originated. Super Guide! Great Day!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It's been a pleasure to take you through your history and the land of your ancestors :)

Giorgio provided me and my wife a very professional and efficiently organized full day tour of Palermo for me and my wife, including a wonderful seafood lunch with Sicilian wines at a local restaurant as we requested. As it was a very hot day, we really appreciated that he drove us around in a very well air-conditioned and comfortable vehicle . We would recommend Giorgio without hesitation.

My wife, Lynne, and I thoroughly enjoyed the day we spent with Giorgio. His knowledge of the history of Sicily, his commentary as we traversed the island from Palermo to Agrigento, and his company were delightful and informative. He spoke English fluently and was accommodating of our needs and interests

Giorgio D. took the family history we could provide and gave us the tour of a lifetime! He prepared for the trip by visiting the tiny village of Ciminna in advance. He then showed my wife the streets where her grandparents were born, scheduled a private tour of the 15th century church her ancestors attended, gave us an informed history of the region while we walked the ancient streets, and arranged a meeting with a previously unknown local cousin! My wife was beside herself with excitement.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear George, your words fill me with joy! It has been a pleasure to know you, your wife and your daughter.
