A must see for true fans of The Godfather. We thought about hiring a car for the day to get to these locations but we're glad we didn't because: a) it was cheaper to go on this organised tour b) extremely winding roads that I wouldn't like to drive on. The tour guide was very friendly and informative. We were given free time at each location and had a chance to look at everything at our own pace. We were running late for the departure of the tour but a quick phone call to the main office and they waited for us. Also my husband forgot his phone from another public bus we used to get there and the tour guide helped us to retrieve it by calling various numbers at the bus station etc. So so helpful.

Fantastic tour, seeing incredible sights from the famous trilogy of films. Our driver was brilliant and our tour guide was welcoming, knowledgable and a genuine pleasure to spend an afternoon with. Highly recommended!

Everything as described. Favignana is wonderful as well as Levanzo. On the motor ship the crew and the captain know how to make the time to spend more pleasant. Great to be able to take a bath offshore.

Perfect tour. Nice lunch. But make sure you don't get water/food all day, only at lunch. The tour is only in Italian, but it is clearly communicated what time you are expected back on the boat. Top!

Nunsio our guide and boat captain was fantastic. He made the day very fun and we learned a lot about the coastal region on the ride to snorkeling.
