This company is a big scam. You are getting a driver, not a tour guide. We booked a full day private tour to Corleone and the area for Dec 27, 2019. The Anti-mafia museum was closed and the driver (Massimiliano) had not idea about anything, kept calling his boss G. Andrea Minafa. I understand this was off-season, but they had no problem charging $394 for something non-existing. Massimiliano barely spoke English and slept in the car when he dropped us off. His English was not the only problem: we would understand Italian a little, but he was not interested in any of the sights and did not have the knowledge of the castle or the area, even when asked in Italian. The sites were beautiful, but the windows of the car were so dirty we could not see a thing. These guys should not be in the travel business. Beware of this company and book elsewhere - there are plenty of companies where you can get a real guide, not a middle man with a car. Most museums, churches, and castles are either free or super cheap (Anti-mafia museum entrance is 8 euro when it's open), so you'd be better off by booking a taxi cab! The tour included a mediocre lunch at the small Corleone restaurant, barely open when we arrived. "The full day" lasted from 8:30 to 3pm - mostly driving and waiting for things to open.

We booked a daily excursion to Etna from Palermo and expected a (promised) tour to Etna since the agency seemed serious. Ended up with a young and non-experienced driver which knew just a few words in English - barely said a word during the trip, didn't know (or say) anything about Etna and was driving really dangerously (fallen asleep during the drive many times so we almost crashed) and got lost several times, obviously driving to Etna for the first time. When reaching Etna, he just said: "I'm waiting here, see you in 3 hours". Avoid this scam - for the same price, renting a car yourself makes much more sense.

Max was my driver for 7 days as I travelled from Palermo to Taormina on an inspection visit. He was most punctual, respectful and great company. Max is a superb driver; he has just the right measure of caution and aggressiveness on the road. His English is good and he was able to answer my questions along the way. He went beyond his duties as a driver and acted as my tour guide when the occasion demanded. He was simply excellent!

This was a great way to visit and tour Corleone. Leandro our driver was a very friendly and cautious driver. Rosanna our English speaking tour guide was very knowledgeable and anxious to show us Corleone. Relaxing and informative trip.
