Our guide had a good knowledge of the area and the films. Ciuld have done with another 1/2 hour at Savoca but well worth a visit.

If I could give it more than 5 stars I would. What the lady guide knows, not only about The Godfather tour, but about the area we travelled through, is very knowledge able. She really takes you into the atmosphere of old Sicily. The people of these villages are also very welcoming, and friendly. You see more than you should, and take in the history of these areas. If you can only do 1 tour, I suggest this one.

As far as tours go, which I usually don't take, it was one of the more relaxed and informative ones.

We don't usely go on tour . My husband is a Godfather movie fan so we decided to take the tour and it was incredible. Good bus driver and the lady who was our guide was exceptional. The site wow! The view wow! We really enjoyed it.
We would do that tour again.

Loved it, loved it, loved it. Our tour guide was very interesting, knew the movies inside out but was also able to talk in a very engaging way about the geography, geology and even the politics. He spoke English very well but also coped admirably with 3 languages in the group too many in my opinion. The areas we visited were breathtakingly beautiful and a must for Godfather movie fans. If I could make any recommendation it would be minimise the number of languages within the group, although all in all this was a very enjoyable and memorable tour.

This was a very good tour, with a guide who really knew her stuff. We went to two locations and had long walks around each, with the guide keeping us informed of various interesting facts along the way. This was our first tour of our holiday and was a great introduction to the lovely villages around the Taormina area.

Really loved this tour. It is a must do. The drive up to the villages is a bit scarey but well worth it. People in the villages were so friendly and the atmosphere was great.

Initially a bit apprehensive about booking with Viator. Assured by the fact that it was a TripAdvisor Company. A bit concerned that it didn't seem to be a local company but I needn't have been. Contacted the helpline re pick-up location and got excellent help and information.
Arrived at pickup location and coach air conditioned as promised with an excellent charismatic guide and we were off.
The villages of Savoca and Forzà d'Agrò are beautiful and the whole tour is a must for Godfather fans. Savoca remains unchanged since the movie was made here some 44 years ago 1972 and it was great to re-watch the movie when we came home and compare our holiday snaps with the scenes form the movie.
Highly recommended.

Great tour. If you are a fan of Godfather movies, you should do that. Our guide Christy was very sympathic and knowledgable. We had a lot of fun. I reccomend it to all Godfather fans. If you are not a fan of the movie you will still have a chance to see two typical Sicilian villages with great views.

It was a very organised and easy tour. They picked us up from the hotel which was great and we visited 2 villages. First village Savoca was great as we had enough time to get a drink, walk around and take photos but the second village Forza d'Agro we were rushed a little bit. We only had 30 minutes I guess and were shown a church which was in the film but there was another church that was in two films of Godfather and actually is more important and we saw that completely by chance and it was very last minute. I dont think anyone else had the chance to see that which was a shame. The guide was very nice and polite, the driver was very good. I would recommend it to my friends and family.

This tour was 2 hours out of our way but as huge Godfather fans, we had to go - it was one of the reasons we chose to go to Sicily on our first trip to Italy. It was well worth the taxi ride and day-long plans, as we got to see beautiful Taormina. Very exciting to see where the few Sicily scenes were shot and visit inside the bar and church where Michael and Apolonia met/wed.

Our tour guide, Alita, was knowledgeable about the Godfather scenes but not about filmmaking. As a filmmaker, I was disappointed. She does a great disservice to Marlon Brando by sharing that he was too lazy to come to Sicily. Wrong. Brando's character was not in the Sicily scenes the scenes were all about his son, Michael, hiding out. There was no reason for Brando to be in Sicily and Hollywood doesn't send every cast member to location shoots -- there are budgets. It's little insights into the filmmaking process that would make this a better tour.

Alita also told the bus that the town doesn't celebrate/glorify its connection to the movie so souvenirs of the film would not be available. You could hear the disappointment on the bus. Again - wrong. As soon as we got off the bus, there were Godfather Tshirts, postcards, bobbleheads, photo ops, etc.

Beautiful scenery and excellent guide. It was a thrill to sit outside the cafe where the Godfather was filmed and the church was well worth a visit. The only problem was the 3 hour traffic wait due to the time we came back from the tour.
