Whether you are a Godfather enthusiast, casual fan, or haven't seen the movie at all, an afternoon with Marco will open your eyes to the endless vistas, and charm of small Sicilian towns that may otherwise go unexplored by the casual tourist. Greeted at our hotel with mouth-watering oranges from his home, Marco was delightful in sharing his knowledge and love, not only for the movie, but for his native Sicily imparting both fun and historic facts throughout our tour. Marco is well connected and gained access to places and people, including Appolonia's mother from the movie, that were truly fascinating. With seemingly endless photo opportunities, he was always patient in making sure we had the perfect picture to add to our Sicilian memories. Did I mention local cheeses and wine? Yes, we had that too and with a stunning view, of course! At the end of the day, my wife and I truly felt as though we made a friend while gaining a wealth of knowledge in reliving the Godfather movie and touring the dramatic Sicilian countryside. This tour will alleviate your stress and culminate in a renewed appreciation for the world we all share and the beauty that is La Sicilia. Cheers and Grazie to Marco!
My husband and I are both very avid and detailed superfans of the movies. This tour is essentially why we spent 10 days in Sicily. Marco was our guide for both this tour as well as the private Etna Winery tour. He was fabulous!!! There isn't one small detail that Marco does not know about the movies. In addition, you will learn A LOT about Sicilian culture, both historical and modern day. It is rare to meet someone with such a passion for their country.
I highly suggest including the lunch/wine tasting at Dionysus owned with love by a former biologist in Savoca with a beautiful patio, beautiful view, great food and wine. It is well worth the money.
Request Marco. He is superb.
Fantastic day out with tour guide Marco who was exceptionally knowledgeable throughout the Godfather tour as well as the surrounding areas. Worth every minute of the days taking in the fantastic views of small villages, churches etc. Highly recommend.
Tour of a lifetime. Our fantastic tour guide Bruno brought us to the most scenic and beautiful parts of Savoca. For Godfather fans is a must. We met lovely people along the way and the best cheese and wine definitely come from Sicily. I would strongly recommend to book a tour with Bruno.
The Godfather tour was amazing. The towns and the sites the movie was filmed have not change much. But most importantly our tour guide Marcos was fabulous. We were served wine, cheese, etc just down from the church where Michael C Al Pacino was married. We also got to speak to the woman who played Michael C's mother-in-law in the movie as she lives down from the church. It was a a perfect day.
On a separate tour the Food, Wine Tasting and Dinner we also had Marco as our guide. The chef at the restaurant was wonderful in assuring we all had tasks we enjoyed and worked together to prepare. There was plenty of wine to go around during the cooking as well! The final meal was amazing. We had so much fun. When we come back to Italy, we will do these two tours again and request Marcos!
This tour was one of the highlights of our trip to Sicily. Marco was our guide and he picked us up at our hotel with a bag of plums from his garden. This gesture was an indicator of how warm and generous he would be throughout the day. By the end of the day, you will feel like you just spent the day walking around Sicily with a friend and not a guide. In addition to his generosity and kind mentality, Marco's knowledge of the region really added an interesting perspective. He knows the who, what, where, why, and how for every detail of the tour and it's respective cities. The stop at Dioniso Vini for lunch was stellar as well. Andrea, the owner, made sure that we had plenty of great wine and food while also showing us handmade wine bottle openers and corks, of which we purchased 1 of each! All in all, if you are looking for a a great local experience in Sicily, this is a great option!
This was a great tripspectacular scenery, excellent guide, and a delicious assorted fish dinner.

This tour is well worth spending the extra money for. Be prepared for a long day as the tour is physically demanding. Our tour guide Marcos was excellent. We can't thank him enough. He provided us with a great deal of information and took us places most people would not typically see on this tour. Marcos just happened to be our guide on one other tours as well. One of our stops was at a local wine bar in Savoca... we needed a rest and this was the perfect place for it. Our final stop was for dinner. It was beyond excellent. It is truly a locals restaurant. We had the opportunity to eat more Italian dishes than we ever imagined. We have never been served this much food at one time. Don't hesitate to sign up for this one and ask for Marcos. Remember, you must be in good physical condition!
Wonderful tour that I highly recommend! Marco was an exceptional host. What a beautiful day! He greeted us at our Airbnb flat, he was on-time and very professional. He even brought us fruit from his garden to snack on. The drive to Savoca was very relaxing and scenic. Nestled up in the mountains, it was so fun to walk around the sights where the movie was filmed and the wine tasting was excellent! We loved the wine and olive oils, all locally made. All of the sights along the coast were gorgeous, especially Taormina, but the highlight of our tour was a suggestion of mine, something I've wanted to see and I asked if he would accommodate this request and take us around the town of Forza D'Agro so I can see all the abandoned villas for sale. There was something so peaceful and beautiful about this deserted town. He was patient as I walked around and answered all the questions I had pertaining to the town and the properties. If you have time to do this tour, please ask for Marco. Marco was flexible, professional and really made you feel welcomed. He's extremely informative, and knowledgeable, explaining the history and answering questions we had about the locations we traveled to. Thanks to him our experience was priceless!
Fantastic afternoon out with local guides. We booked for 6 on the tour and they brought 2 cars as well as wine and fruit for us all.
We started by visiting Godfather locations in Savoca and learning about the traditions of this mountaintop village followed by sampling stunning food and wine at Bar Dioniso Vini do Andrea Morabito.
Forza D'Agro was our second stop with more great locations and amazing views.
The roads up to the villages twist and turn through olive groves and citrus orchards and you get a real sense of how it is to live in rural Sicily
We spent a good 6 hours on this tour
