Aldo enthusiastically met us at the port. This was our first experience with a local tour
guide. He immediately made us feel welcome and started sharing plans for the day and
information about Sicily. The weather was cool and wet, but Aldo did his best to make us
comfortable. In fact, the inclement weather may have turned into one of our more
memorable experiences. The vehicle and driver met our expectations. We would
enthusiastically recommend Aldo and this tour to anyone going to Sicily.

Aldo is absolutely fan-tabulous! I just finished a 3 week European vacation with 14 of my
friends, and we voted Aldo the #1 guide of our whole trip! Quite an accomplishment with
our crew. We can be a bit "spirited" and "enthusiastic" for some guides, but Aldo fit right
in. High-energy & loads of fun...at one point he had us literally dancing in the streets! His
knowledge of, and love for, Sicily was obvious. Plus, Aldo was very responsive to my
numerous e-mails & questions as I planned our visit. Hurray!

Aldo runs an amazing tour, both from a deep knowledge of his country, and his
professionalism in delivering his services. He may have been the best guide we have
encountered in our years of traveling Europe.

We really enjoyed the tour. Our guide, Aldo, was excellent and made the tour a great
experience for us. To be in small group of six was so much better than travelling with a bus
load of people. We would recommend this tour.

From the moment that he wows you with his incredible smile, to the enthusiasm that he
shows keeping the kids interested in the tour, Aldo proved to be one of the best tour guides
we had in recent years. We felt like we were with a friend rather than a stranged. Have NO
hesitation in spending your time with this wonderful person. Thank you Aldo

Aldo provided our family with a tour that we will always cherish. His knowledge of Sicilia
(we were paying attention!) and his desire and ability to impart as much of it as possible
during the time we were together was fantastic. Just a few of the areas that really impressed
us about Aldo: preparedness, knowledge, friendliness, organization, accommodations. We
highly receommend that you tour with Aldo during your visit to Italia! Molte, molte grazie!!

We spent a wonderful day in Taormina with Aldo. He was very thorough and his English
was very good. He was pleasant and extremely knowledgeable about the area. We were
able to customize our tour and have time to shop as well. It was a beautiful day! We were
greeted at the port and transported in a spacious and comfortable vehicle. Choose Aldo,

Just returned from our Eastern Med. cruise, one of the highlights of which was the tour
from Messina to Castelmola,Taormina and the surrounding areas with Aldo. From the
moment Aldo met us at the port terminal we knew we were in for a great day, it was just like
meeting an old friend. Aldo has just the right blend of friendliness, humour and a great
knowledge of Sicily.I would highly recommend 'tours by locals' and especially Aldo for the
brilliant tour he gave us in Sicily. Ron Swift UK

Aldo organized a perfect day for our group of 19. We went to a private beach club and then
a two hour boat ride with champagne and snacks. The kids had a ball. We had a wonderful
lunch at the restaurant at the beach club and then the bus was right on time to take us back
to the ship. We can't wait to go back to Sicily! Whitney Presutti Hingham, MA 7/2011

Our day trip to Sicily was the best day of our trip. Thank you so much for providing us with
such a wonderful trip......the boats were perfect and the children loved swimming in the
middle of the sea with such gorgeous surroundings. The beach was perfect as was he lunch.
Thank you so much for a wonderful and memorable day. I cannot wait to see Sicily again!

Aldo was already booked so he arranged for his wife, Caterina to guide us on The
Godfather Tour. We would give Caterina 10 stars if possible! She gave us the most
wonderful tour. Very knowledgeable and patient as we explored the beautiful hills of Sicily
and asked many questions. She truly wanted to make the day one that we will remember
forever - and she did!! Caterina is delightful and made our lunch experience unforgettable!!
We will be SURE to see her again in the near future!! A TRUE DELIGHT!!

Aldo was an outstanding tour guide. He not only showed us the beautiful regions of Sicily
(Mt. Etna and Taorminia) but he had samples of the pastries, ice cream and honey for us.
He was fluent in English and very impressionable. He ended the tour by giving the females
a magnet depicting Sicily. I would highly recommend him if anyone were going to visit
Sicily.
