It has been a good experience. And I recommend that people try to get a tour, it was fantastic but did not have enough time visiting Monreale and Cefalù but made the most out of it. We only have a certain amount of time to breath the air and to also observe the chatedral in Monreale that had a special history. But if we could, we would go back there with our driver Micheal.

It was SO hot and this was the perfect way to do the tour. Wouldn’t have minded a bit more time to explore Monreale town but was enough to see the church and enjoy a coffee. The guide/Marco was smart, articulate, well educated and personable. Highly recommend.

Our driver Michael was excellent, informative and a good driver

The trip to Monreale and Cefalù was a pleasant day to get out of Palermo city The cathedral at Monreale is magnificent and for those with an extensive knowledge of bible stories would need to spend hours viewing the multitude of mosaics. Dont miss it.

It was a fantastic tour to Monreale and Cefalu! Our guide, Marco, told us about two thousand years of the Sicilian history while he was driving. We all enjoyed the travel and the service!

Very enjoyable

Would suggest a whole day in order to spend more time in both locations
