What people are saying about Corleone, Sicily

Agrostina and Delassandro were fantastic tour guides/translators and friends. From the moment they picked us up they were friendly and engaging. They were helpful with the planned activities but also gave us the space and options to look at towns and places that we were not expecting. First we were taken to Ficuzza national park which would have been lovely to tour alone but was made 100% richer for Agrostina’s patient attention and translations. She arranged an alternative anti mafia tour which let us see the true face of Mafia influence in Corleone rather than the glorified Hollywood story, speaking to locals who were setting up resistance against Mafia bullying. Very interesting tour. Finally on our way home we were taken to Piana de Albanesi , a lovely little town with dual Italian and Albanian dialects. We were treated to THE most amazing Connolo in a fantastic cafe. Finally on our way home Agrostina helped us organise a boat trip got the following day, which was also amazing. TYX

Good trip from Palermo to Corleone. From what I understand from the tour guide (Joshua) it's a new tour. As it was a new tour some things were maybe a bit of guesswork in terms of 'will they be open' or 'where is this?'. Joshua was great and was very informative when it came to the Mafia and life in Sicily. This tour could be 5 stars but it needs some work and better research and understanding of the area/when things are open etc.

What a great experience! We were hesitant at the beginning as it’s a new tour and we had read modest reviews but it’s worth it! Marco, our driver is the best! Very knowledgeable and helpful, super friendly and fun! The Godfather House also was a great surprise! We had a lovely tour by the owner and then enjoyed typical Sicilian food at the restaurant in the balcony of the house. Highly recommended and ask for Marco!

Michael, our driver was very pleasant and polite and spoke good English. The Corleone tour was not quite what we’re we expecting, however the godfather house and the history provided by the guide was interesting and engaging.
