After the Etna visit, we met up with Allessio for the Godfather excursion. Allessio is a passionate guide. He told us incredible anecdotes about the filming of the films. He knows absolutely everything about what surrounds the production of films. He passed on his passion to us. Thank you Allessio for these two wonderful days!

11/10 Experience! Highly recommended for ALL fans! Had an absolutely fantastic day on the Godfather tour. Visiting these sites has been on my bucket list for a long time and this tour was a fantastic way to accomplish this. Alessio is a friendly, enthusiastic and expert guide and provided us with an exceptional experience. Given Alessio’s extensive knowledge and palpable enthusiasm for the films, this is a tour run by a fan, for fans. That said, anyone who has seen the Godfather films will get a lot out of this tour, from casual moviegoer to film zealot. The places you visit (Savoca and Forza d'Agro) are also beautiful in their own right and it was a great way to see Sicily. Visiting Castello Degli Schiavi (an optional extra) was another highlight and great privilege that Alessio organises with the owner of the mansion (The Baron, an extremely welcoming, friendly and polite host). Thank you so much, Alessio! We had a truly spectacular and holiday-defining experience.

Alessio was a great host making the whole group feel welcomed. His knowledge of the Godfather was second to none and took us to some beautiful spots which any fan would recognise. All in all was a great experience and would highly recommend Alessio as your host. P.S Alessio watch the Wire. George & Em
