What people are saying about Province of Ragusa

We have just returned from the wonderful Montalbano Tour with Alessio. What an amazing tour and day we had. Being out of season made little difference. Alessio made sure we saw it all, the office, the flat, the locations. This was all imparted with not only excellent knowledge of the show but also the historic backgrounds of the cities and towns we passed through. We were not rushed and had ample time to wander at the stops we made. Alessio is a charming character who made us feel welcome and at home. We were able to ask him all sorts of questions which he readily answered. I highly recommend this tour and the tour guide. Thank you Alessio for a wonderful day.

Alessio was wonderful with his thorough architectural, archeological, historic, geological, environmental and gastronomic knowledge of Sicily. An excellent guide, remarkable for his passion and professionalism. He picked us up on time, respected covid19 measures and answered to all our questions. His style was engaging and he made us feel right at home with knowledge that we would not have found without him. I will certainly recommend him and would love to book another tour with him next time we will be visiting Sicily. Best guide we could wish for! Thank you!

We had a wonderful day with guide Alessio who was very knowledgeable and as a bonus is a Montalbano fan! He took us to all the most iconic places in the series, which was great fun and as the weather was glorious we were able to swim in Salvo's part of the sea.

Great trip seeing loads of the tv locations including the inside of the police station ( a few euros extra). Superb knowledgeable driver / guide who allowed plenty of time to soak up the atmosphere of each place & take plenty of photos.

An excellent tour led by our guide Alessio who was so friendly and superb with his knowledge. Was great to see the locations used in Montalbano and the beauty of Sicily. A wonderful day.
