We were a group of 7 and had the pleasure of having Francesa as our guide in Palermo and Cefalu. Everything was just wonderful. Francesca made falling in love with Sicily so easy. She took such great pride in her beautiful island and gave us such fabulous recommendations - even movies to watch when we got home (which I watched every one of them)! My heart goes out to the beautiful people of Sicily, and as we were probably Francesca's last tour before this pandemic hit, I would so love to be her first when things are all better again. I will be back to see you!!

Palermo is a remarkable layered city and Francesca leads the best tours of its secrets and wonders. She was a great guid who went well beyond in helping us and meeting our special interests in the Byzantine and Norman periods. Thanks!

The morning was amazing - she made it seem so effortless. I saw all the mosaics I wanted to see at Monreale, The Norman Castle, Martorana and more. I was traveling alone and it made all the difference to have her with me.There is no way I could see all I did see if I tried to do it by myself. Photos do not do it justice. Driving to Monreale with her was in itself an experience - I just saw the traffic and the full buses as we passed - I would not have experienced the beautiful art work if I had to do battle with the crowds. I recommend Francesca - you will do it more effectively, less stress, and come away away with memories to last a lifetime.

Had a wonderful day with Francesca during our stay in Palermo. She and a driver picked us up at our hotel and had a morning tour of Monreale Cathedral, make sure you include the cloisters in your visit. We drove back to Palermo and did a walking tour of the historical center, visiting churches, learning the history, and having a rest with excellent gelato! Would highly recommend Francesca, she answered all emails promptly and was happy to help In any way she could, even arranging transportation to Eriche the next day.

Francesca is the very best. The 4 of us spent the day touring Palermo and Monreale with Francesca. As the day progressed she adjusted our tour based upon what our interests were. She is not only a superb guide - she listens to and understands the people she is working with that day. It was a very personal experience for all of us. Although we only toured with Francesca for one day she continued to check in with us and offer suggestions for the additional 6 days that we spent in Sicily.
