Excellent tour by Alessio, an exceptional guide. The first stop on our day trip was at Bar Vitale. The Cappuccino I drank was the best I have ever had. From there it was to the Church in Savoca. Afterwards a short drive to Forza D Argo, which was used for Corleone in all 3 films. We took in these sights then had a nice lunch at a local Cafe which the movies production staff ate at. Pictures of the Town's filming locations adorned one wall. We added the extra option of a visit to Castello Degli Schiavi, Don Tommasino's Villa in the trilogy. It was there we were welcomed by the owner, The Baron. A very friendly and warm host, who gave us a tour of his home and showed us some very rare production items. The prop in front of his mansion made the hair stand up on the back of my neck with excitement. Make sure you add this on your tour as only a few operators are able to arrange this Alessio is one of them. This tour was the highlight of my trip to Sicily. Highly recommended.

Alessio is just the best, as the other reviewers said, he makes a really great tour with a nice little surprise at the end of the tour. Alessio is the guy you want ! on time, clean car, speaks english and spanish fluently and he really enjoys what he is doing ! even though I had to catch a flight after the tour and to get a negativ covid test, Alessio managed everything just on time ! and everything for a reasonable price! (not like other local cab drivers !) I can only recommend and hope to see him soon again !

Wonderful, i was the only one and Alessio made sure i have a great time. He explained me all the details where the filming of Godfather took place. We had coffee and light lunch with dessert. Since we had some time left he took me Taormina again as in the last trip i could not explore it well. Highly recommended tour
