We did this tour on Wednesday 18, August 2021 under the guidance of Valeria. I would highly recommend it for anybody interested in the Gofather movie and the Mafia. We could not have found anyone more knowledgeable or engaging as Valeria. He ensured we had a truly wonderful experience. Thank you so much Valeria, we will be recommending this tour to all our friends visiting the area.

This tour was so fun! Antonio Chirco was hands down the best tour guide we have ever had!! He went out of his way to take us to different places he thought we would love. He is incredibly knowledgeable about history and architecture! He made this day amazing!! The roads are very windy and Antonio stoped at a pharmacy so we could get motion sickness medication. Lunch was delicious!
