Overall, this is essentially just a group ride to get you to the two villages featured in The Godfather. There was no tour part or commentary, and so you have to use google to figure out where to go. As long as you expect that, you should be ok. The views up to the villages are incredible, and visiting the churches plus having a drink at Bar Vitelli were definitely highlights.
