From my first e-mail with Mimmo, I knew that I had chose the best guide AND driver for our limited time in Sicily. He provided a customized itinerary and responded quickly to any questions. He has more than 20 years experience with giving tours and it shows: he has a great attention to detail from simply securing belongings, stopping for a local treat, to pointing out architectural marvels that most people would gloss over. Though we had a full day of sights and travel, it was well paced, we didn't feel rushed at all and even with some last minute changes, Mimmo was accommodating and made it all happen with a smile. He speaks perfect English and has a great sense of humor. His knowledge of history is extraordinary and there was no question that he couldn't answer. Next time we are in Sicily, I would definitely book Mimmo again for a longer tour.
