The exquisite baroque architecture of Modica, Scicli, and Ragusa. Taking the 45-minute Trenino Barocco glass-topped train tour around upper and lower Modica for only €5.

The trip was advertised as a Montalbano tour. We visited one site which the driver had difficulty finding. Every time we stopped subsequently it was not connected to Montalbano. The driver could not speak English. He chose where we went for lunch and suggested a tourist train ride round the town. The company had agreed to drop two Australian couples off at their hotel which the driver couldn't find so we arrived back in Catania at about 7.30 instead of 6pm. When I complained in the office I was told that Montalbano was just the name of the tour -which was exactly why we chose it. There were several other Montalbano trips advertised so we believe the company is deliberately misleading tourists to get the bookings. The girl in the office told my wife no refund was available because we had seen the house and the rest of the trip was to see the General area and not to visit specific locations. If we had known this we would not have booked it. As a side issue because the driver acted as the personal taxi for the Australian couples and made us very late our taxi driver had to wait for 90 minutes to drive us back to our hotel

A very good tour but do not expect interaction with the driver. He is a driver, not a guide. It would have been nice to get tips and ask questions instead of hearing a recording of what you are about to see. Also, the car goes through twists and turns in the roadways and if you get carsick easily, take dramamine. It was a beautiful day exploring on a wonderful tour.

Tour privado en carro que vale la pena para amantes de la serie El Comisario Montalabano. La ruta sigue ciudades cuyos paisajes aparecen en la serie, pasando por Punta Secca (casa del comisario frente al mar); luego por Scicli, donde se puede pagar a un precio módico para ver las oficinas donde se grabaron los episodios en la estación de policía y la oficina de Montalbano; una estancia de dos horas en Modica, para recorrer y comer si desean y con última parada en Ragusa Ibla. Colocan un breve audio pregrabado de unos cuantos minutos en el carro antes de llegar a las mencionadas ciudades sobre su historia y su relación con la serie de televisión. Para el que no conoce la serie podría desear recibir más información. El chófer que nos llevó no habló durante el recorrido. Los otros dos turistas que estaban en el tour no conocían la serie, y no parecían tan emocionados como nosotros dos que ya esperábamos ver estos paisajes y que fue un sueño hecho realidad. Estas ciudades tienen una calma y calidez diferentes de las típicas ciudades que atraen el gran turismo. En particular, agradecimos el trato recibido en Scicli de parte del alcalde y el personal de la alcaldía.

Esta experiencia no puede considerarse un tour. En realidad consistió en un chofer con su van que nos depositó en los 4 lugares previstos (Punta Secca, Scicli, Módica y Ragusa) sin ninguna explicaión. Es más el chofer nunca había ni siquera visto la serie de Montalbano
