Wonderful experience
Reginald_I, Sept 2023
Our guide was excellent. This was a very memorable experience. Our guide was helpful very informative and knowlegeable. Nothing was too much trouble. He showed us many of the film locations for Commissario Montalbano, including the wonderful view of his house. Full marks to our guide who we would highly recommend. We'll done. BRAVISSIMO!
A perfect day out for any Inspector Montalbano fan!

A brilliant excursion with an amazing and safe driver (thanks Giuseppe!) who was friendly, knowledgeable about the locations and great company for the day. We had a fantastic experience - the highlight has to be the set of the Police Station in Scicli's city hall which we weren't expecting to be accessible. Montalbano's house in Punta Secca is a close second however and we loved the seafront in Donnalucata that all fans will recognise. Thank you!
Montalbano tour locations are great, the tour company is trash.

Montalbano tour and the locations visited are great especially for the series fans. Our tour car was not the expected one. It was the second time in three days that they took us with the same emergency car. First Syracuse tour and secondly Montalbano tour. We asked for partial refund because we were not happy with the car. The owner of the tour company said that the type of the car was not written in the booking and therefore we didn’t had the right for refund. We accepted his remarks and still told him that this was not our expectation. The tour guide Riccardo was OK. Later on the tour company owner approached us while he was servicing other customers in the same tour route with a luxury car and started to shouting at us and stating that he is preferring American tourists and not tourists like us without knowing even our nationality. We said to him that we are still in disagreement with him about our the car type and we will continue the tour since we didn’t had any other option. The tour owner continued angrily shouting. I think this tour company should be deleted from Viator system and the owner should pass an anger management course and stop discriminating people because of their nationalities.
Response from Host, June 2023
First of all I wasn't shouting, but I was talking animatedly because I got nervous after trying to explain to you for the umpteenth time that your complaints had no basis, and you were also asking for a refund! In the product description it is not written anywhere that the service is provided with luxury cars, but despite this, our entire fleet is made up of Mercedes cars except the emergency car which is a Volkswagen Passat, a car that falls into the category standard sedan. Therefore, you had no reason to complain and even ask for even a partial refund! You have had the emergency car for 2 excursions in 3 days, but this is because the engine of one of our Mercedes E-classes has failed, and fixing a heavily compromised engine Is expensive and takes quite a long time. So, rather than canceling your reservations, we have provided you with emergency vehicle, which, I repeat, is a standard sedan, therefore a large, comfortable and reliable vehicle! You complained that you paid a lot and therefore had to have a luxury car. The price you paid is not for the luxury car but for the type of service offered, infact it is a private tour, with a car and an English-speaking driver entirely dedicated to you! But you didn't understand or didn't want to understand and you persisted with your unfounded complaints and to request a refund, which is why I got annoyed and nervous. Furthermore I never discriminated against you, just because i didn't even know what your nationality was, just like you said... I just said I was tired of people like you complaining and asking for refunds without any reason to do so!
exceptional guide and trip
Camilla_F, May 2023
Big fan of the series. I saw his house, ate in his restaurant of choice and visited his place of work together with breathtaking scenery and towns in between. As an oldie, alone with limited walking ability my guide was exceptional and he excelled in his ability to enable access to everywhere and was very patient and informative, if i could give more stars I would.
A tour for the fans
Tsze_C, Sept 2022
Great tour for Montalbano fans. We visited the police station, the towns from the opening scenes, Montalbano's apartment, the castle where he met with the crime boss, and ate at the restaurant that was Montalbano's favorite! All in a day - a quite a long day. Our guide Giuseppe was courteous, professional and knowledgeable, and thanks for picking us up in Taormina. It was a long drive! Highly recommended.
We are big fans of Montalbano from the states. The tour covered everything we wanted to see and more. Giuseppe was wonde
