The trip to Ragusa, Modica and Noto was excellent… though, our guide didn’t speak much English and served more as a driver to each site than an actual guide. Some local information was provided and some rudimentary conversation was had in Italian. It would have been appreciated to have individual maps provided ahead of the drop-offs. The water bottles provided were appreciated. A little less time in Ragusa would have allowed a bit more time in Noto. The recommendation to visit the Bonajuta chocolatier in Modica was appreciated - and is highly recommended. Our ‘guide’ was an excellent driver and did make two stops so that some great panoramic photos could be taken of Ragusa and Noto. Highly recommend visiting all three towns - given our circumstances, it was the best way for us to enjoy them within our schedule. Much appreciated!

This was the best decision we made while visiting the Catania area. Maurizio was such a wonderful, sweet and knowledgeable guide - we could not recommend him more! On the way to Mt Etna we stopped in Maurizio’s town where he generously gifted us delicious pastries/desserts as a gift as we were on our honeymoon. We went to Patria, Tornatore and Gambino wineries. We received a tour of the cellar at Patria and enjoyed the stunning views. Tornatore was a quicker stop but very cute and fun! Gambino was a much busier winery with amazing wines and views! We were given local meats, cheeses, olives, bread, etc at each place. We loved this experience and highly recommend!

Great Experience, if you can request Maurizio to be your guide you will be in great hands. He definitely enhanced the experience. He shared history of Sicily as we drove from vineyard to vineyard. He is extremely knowledgeable and personable. Each vineyard had its own characteristics so all three were unique in their own way. This experience is a must if you can make it happen.

Our guide, Umberto, was knowledgeable and shared many interesting details with us about story of Corleone and the Mafia. Great guide and great tour! Book the private tour; it is worth it!

Super informative and fun as we stopped at multiple spots to explore further
