Tour leader was waiting for us in the morning. He did his utmost to please all those who joined the tour. Both Monreale and Cefalu are interesting places and worth a visit. Michael, the tour leader is capable at explaining and providing details on the sites.

This tour was great! Mikail(Michael) was an excellent driver and enjoyed his tidbits of information along our drive! Mionreale and Cefalù are very amazing places to see! The Cathedral in Monreale was spectacular and lunch by the sea in cefalu was awesome

Monreale is an amazing place. The mosaics in the cathedral are outstanding...so worth the trip up there. Cefalu is a delightful seaside town. Had fun just walking around the lanes and into the little shops. Michael was our driver/guide and I couldn't be happier with his services. He went out of his way to pick me up when traffic caused me to miss the original pickup time. I'm so grateful that he was able to accommodate me. This is what customer service is all about!

Pleasant day seeing some wonderful sites.

Our tour was this past week, Mid October 2017, from Palermo with Michael. We had the additional luxury of being a small group in a van rather than a large group in a bus. Michael was very knowledgeable, considerate, and professional. He gave us plenty of information in English, Italian and German! about Monreale and Cefalu and answered all our questions courteously. The amount of time that we had was adequate in both cases to see the highlights of either Monreale or Cefalu....and to stop off to taste the reportedly best arancini in the area. I highly recommend this tour. Although both places are accessible by train from Palermo, it is worth the extra money to be picked up at your hotel, dropped off right where you need to be in Monreale or Cefalu, and to have an expert like MIchael at your disposal throughout the tour.

Our driver was professional and friendly. Monreale was amazing, and Cefalu was interesting, but crammed with tourists--it is a vacation/beach town for locals as well--the town was pleasant, but other than walking the streets and eating at a local restaurant, there was really not that much to do in Cefalu.

Michael Thur was our amazing driver. We were very fortunate that he was also an excellent guide. There were only 9 of us so it was a cozy tour not a coach bus, thank goodness. Michael gave us an excellent overview of all that we were seeing as we drove to Monreale ad explained what we about to see there. It is so beautiful. Michael again engaged us in delightful conversation about everything around us and so much more about Sicily itself on the way to and from Cefalu. He even made restaurant reservations for us or that evening! My husband lost his cell phone in Cefalu and Michael went out of his way to help us find it. He had been giving tours in Spanish the day before and switched over to English effortlessly. Michael was on time, gave us extra time, and returned us to our hotel. How he drove through the traffic of Palermo I'll never understand. And I live in Los Angeles where we think the traffic is bad! I should add the price was terrific. Many thanks.

This tour is not very exciting. Cefalu beach is super crowded, very touristic, nothing special. Monreale is just ok. The tour Leader is the driver, He didn't stay with us the whole time explaining.

We had 2 wonderful tours with Giusy. She is very knowlegeable and made our tours of the sights even more fascinating with her explanations and historical perspectives. We will always fondly remember our time with her in Palermo, Monreale, and Cefalù. We felt like we became good friends with her, she is a very warm and friendly person. We highly recommend her! Grazie mille Guisy!!!

A great day. Monreale amazing cathedral...and Cefalu a unique location.
Lovely settings and well worth a visit...only disappointment was there was nobody to take us around the sites and explain about history, development, etc.
It would also have welcomed to receive comment on the landscape, industry, etc. That we passed on the way from Palermo to Cefalu.
