Marco was a completely awesome tour guide! He is very friendly and personable, and he took us to all the places where the Godfather scenes were filmed. We got cappuccinos at Bar Vitelli and bought souvenirs in the store nearby. Marco even recorded a video for us of my boyfriend and me dancing where Michael and Kay danced in Godfather 3 which we will cherish forever! He knows everything about the Godfather movies and the making of the movies, and we learned about the history of the Cosa Nostra in Sicily. We learned a lot about Sicily with Marco. This tour was the highlight of our trip to Sicily! A must for any Godfather fan! We will definitely be back!

My husband and I started this tour at 11:00 am with Marco navigating the way....it was spectacular. Marco not only shared with us his own personal story and love for Sicily, but provided us intricate historical details about Savoca that I am not sure others would know. His enthusiasm, knowledge and willingness to make everything special - even take pictures in the pouring rain - made this our favorite experience in Sicily. The cheese and wine tasting is a must, and be sure to ask for Marco for your tour guide; you will not be disappointed!

We were in Sicily for 9 days and dicided to take The Godfather walking you with viator! Let me tell you Mariolina our guide was the BEST guide we have had since we were in Sicily! She was so knowledgeable and sweet! She even took us to meet The woman who was the little girl in the wedding scene! Just loved her! And our driver Louisa was wonderful and efficient driving us all around those narrow roads! Also we did the wine tasting which was well worth the money! We tasted three types of wine and had three types of salami and cheeses! We have used viator in the past and whenever we travel will always use viator in the future!! This tour I would highly recommend to anyone who loves the movie of The Godfather!

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.

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!
