Personal tour is what it is, personal. Therefore, the experience that we got out of the tour could go either way and it's entirely subjective. I booked with SunnySicily to visit the baroque towns of Noto, Modica & Ragusa. My allocated guide was Giancarlo and he's very eloquent with the history and of the towns that I visited and he would tie their histories into the fabric of Sicily and its co-relationship with the mainland, Italy. We dabbled in everything and Giancarlo and the driver joined me for lunch and they took me to an Osteria that's popular with local people. It's comfort food at its best. The tour is paced and it's never rushed. Even the driver drove at an even pace and so, everything was comfortable to say the least. I said it before and I say it now, the best mean to get your money's worth in Sicily is to book for a tour such as this instead of spending much of your time negotiating your way through the bus schedules and to try to tie them in with other places that you want to go. Sicily is not as logistically logical compared with other parts of Europe. That being said, Sicily is such an enchanting place to visit and I would highly recommend SunnySicily to reviewers out there.

I agree with the many five star reviews SunnySicily has received. Paolo's infectious enthusiasm for and deep knowledge of Sicily made the trip very special. My friends and I fell in love with Sicily, because we were able to see this extraordinary place through Paolo's eyes. We also appreciated his relaxed style and his great sense of humor. I plan to return one day with my family, and hope to again have Paolo as our guide.
Also although my friends and I were in Sicily on a holiday trip, I can tell that Paolo would be excellent in business situations. As a foreign correspondent, I worked with a number of interpreters and, like the best of them, Paolo provides important context and seems to be a keen observer of human nature. His English is excellent and his van is very comfortable. I can recommend SunnySicily without hesitation.

My fiancé and I arrived by cruise ship to Messina (Sicily), Italy where we were promptly met by our driver and guide. We booked a day trip Mt. Etna and Taromina. This day trip turned out to be one of the highlights of our trip thanks largely impart to our driver and extremely knowledgeable guide, Paolo. He treated us as friends he was showing around town and made sure we were happy and comfortable the entire trip. I would recommend sunnysicily.com and our driver Paolo to anyone traveling to Messina. He truly made our trip a memorable experience.
Thank you Paolo.
Your friends in Miami,

Our recent excursion to the north and southwestern parts of Sicily was our second beyond exceptional experience with our guide Paolo Gallo. In the fall of 2010 he had expertly shared Taormina, Etna, Siracusa with us...with all of his heart and soul I will add!
Touring with Paolo you feel that a dear friend accompanies you. His warmth, energy, enthusiasm, love and knowledge of his own home makes for unforgettable memories. You can leave the guide books in your suitcase! Paolo always manages to create his own unique itinerary- you will find yourself in settings you have not read about!
How about Easter dinner at an olive oil producing villa, sitting in a charming Sicilian dining room with locals surrounding you! ..not to mention the feast of caponata, followed by course after course. "Lunch" at a prominent Sicilian winery takes on new meaning.. Again a communal table, where the Italians out number Americans.. You feel completely immersed in their life style .. Which is truly the way to travel.
We have not experienced touring/ guidance
at this high level of perfection. It begins the moment Paolo happily greets you at the airport, organizes your vacation days with creativity, does everything in a timely fashion, consistently aiming to please..and when the time comes to say "ciao", you know you will be back again to Sunny Sicily.
We already plan a third trip in 2014, with the best, Paolo!
