Alessio was a fantastic tour guide: Personable, knowledgeable about the area & Montalbano, skilled driver and excellent English ability. While this tour had a focus on the show, Alessio would throw in other historical or cultural observations. We felt we could ask him anything and was a cool way of learning about Sicilian culture from a local.

We had a wonderful day with guide Alessio who was very knowledgeable and as a bonus is a Montalbano fan! He took us to all the most iconic places in the series, which was great fun and as the weather was glorious we were able to swim in Salvo's part of the sea.

We have just returned from the wonderful Montalbano Tour with Alessio. What an amazing tour and day we had. Being out of season made little difference. Alessio made sure we saw it all, the office, the flat, the locations. This was all imparted with not only excellent knowledge of the show but also the historic backgrounds of the cities and towns we passed through. We were not rushed and had ample time to wander at the stops we made. Alessio is a charming character who made us feel welcome and at home. We were able to ask him all sorts of questions which he readily answered. I highly recommend this tour and the tour guide. Thank you Alessio for a wonderful day.
