What people are saying about Savoca

My wife and I had a great day taking part in this tour on the 20th July with Antonio as our guide. It was an exceptional experience and Antonio was very knowledgable in all aspects, ranging from Sicily in general to mafia history right through to the current day. The views we experienced in both Forz d' Agro and Savoca were stunning and would have been worth the trip alone but when you add in visiting the scenes used in the Godfather movies it just topped things off nicely. The tour ended with lunch at a lovely restaurant in Savoca with pasta, wine and coffee where we were able to have a chat with Antonio and the other couples who were also taking part in the tour which was nice.

Our guide was Antonio Chirco. He was a very enthousiastic and knowledgeable guide. The tour was very interesting and Antonio was happy to answer all our questions. A must do tour when you love maffia movies!

I loved getting to know the places where they filmed and getting to know Taormina. The guide Simone was excellent, friendly, he told us about the history of Catania, it was a very fun ride thanks to him.
