Francesca provides personal insight and historical perspective in a extremely professional manner. Her knowledge of Sicily allowed us to use her services for a number of cities and historical sights. She was our guide in Palermo, Monreale, Cefalu, Erice, Segesta, Sellulunte, Agrigento, Ragusa, Modica and Noto.Throughout our planning she provided expert insight and guidance without question. She assisted with hotel suggestions and gave us restaurant suggestions along the route of our tour. We had the unexpected pleasure of having a driver. Francesca and her driver filled each day with fun and laughter!

My husband and I recently enjoyed a walking tour of Palermo as well as a day trip to Segeste and Erice with Francesca in her very comfortable vehicle. She was very friendly, knowledgeable and flexible in providing us with the experiences that we wanted and answering all of our questions. As we had a delay in receiving our luggage from Rome she went out of her way to help us retrieve it at the Palermo airport and didn't take no for an answer when the luggage office was closed. We were very impressed!

I can only say the nicest things about Francesca. We hired her to take us to Erice, Segeste, Trapani and Moreale. She picked us up and we had a wonderful day. Her knowledge of the regions, the history and culture is vast, she engaged and interested four very jet lagged people all day long.
Our tour included a visit to an Olive oil producer and lunch. We had low expectations for the lunch but we were totally "blown away" by the fabulous food and wine served at the Azienda Fontanasalsa Agriturismo.
I would highly recommend Francesca and this tour

We engaged Francesca first for half day tours of Palermo and Monreale, and then for 2 days to travel to Selinunte and Agrigento, and the next day to Piazza Armerina and Enna.

Francesca is a highly experienced and very knowledgeable guide, friendly and with a good sense of humour. She is very responsive to the needs and interests of her clients. She has a large and comfortable vehicle (which still had its new car smell) which easily accommodated 3 adults and their large suitcases. Highly recommended

My mother and I had a fabulous time touring with Francesca. We went through Castelbuono and also did a private cooking demonstration and wine tasting. Francesaca was full of great information and was able to easily translate for us. We have done many tours before but she was one of the best guides we’ve had. We would definitely book with her again if we wanted to tour another area in Sicily.
