Very nice tour from Rosario, a local guide from Taormina. He shared so much with us, not only about The Godfather filming locations (which were awesome!), but also about Sicily’s culture. He also shared some great restaurant recommendations in Taormina with us which were spot on! Lastly, he was very friendly and thoughtful about our needs. Excellent tour and fantastic guide!

We thoroughly enjoyed our Godfather tour with our friendly and knowledgeable guide. It was fantastic to see exactly where scenes were filmed and much of it unchanged today. Stunning views and scenery in the two villages, and we enjoyed learning about the history of Sicily on the way too. Would highly recommend.

Gianfranco was the most gracious host. He knew all the details of The Godfather & hidden gems of Sicily. He was personable & a great driver. We really enjoyed our day with him & would recommend this tour to anyone visiting Sicily. Thank you!
