Giancarlo, Italy

We went on an ‘organised tour’ of Montelbano’s Sicily. This programme about the ‘Sicilian detective’ has been very popular on English TV and caught a lot of peoples’ imaginations. Anyway, having been to Sicily a few times before but not to this area of this beautiful island, this was something we wanted to experience. Our tour guide Giancarlo was superb, using his amazing knowledge of the history of the island to ‘bring it alive’. Also he had a great sense of humour so this tour was not boring at all! . We thoroughly enjoyed this tour due to his efforts to keep us all happy, which I am sure was not easy. We were also impressed because the tour numbers are not too big, which is also important. Anyway, it was ‘Tutti Fruiti’ and lots of fun Read more
