Hello my name is Ciro Grillo and I am a Sicilian travel specialist. I have served in the tourist industry for 27 years and have extensive knowledge and experience in guiding small group tours throughout Sicily. I work very closely with selected local tour guides and together our insider knowledge and expertise will help you discover the authentic Sicily that you will always remember.
I am not a travel agent but a Sicily specialist tour designer .
I will design a trip for you, your friends, and family, while co-ordinating your particular interests, schedule, and budget. Your resultant tour will be an authentic one using only the best locally sourced contacts.
We can either plan a complete and detailed itinerary for you, without you having to worry about anything – you just have to pack your bags and we will take care of the rest.
Or alternatively, if you prefer, we can operate as a consultant.
This way we can work closely with you as you conduct your own research, while using our local knowledge to access the fine details.
Our services are provided for a consultation fee. This cost is based on the length of time of your tour, the number of travelers in your group, plus how much preparation time you have given us in order to provide you with optimal service.
This enables us to organise a trip that aligns with your individual needs as well as your budget. We are not driven by commissions.
Our primary objective is to make your Sicilian adventure a positive and enjoyable experience.
Not only can I ensure that you see all of the beautiful highlights that Sicily has to offer but I can also arrange trips to the rest of Italy.
The possibilities are endless! Whether you want to enjoy the Mediterranean Sea or the beautiful mountainous inland areas, I can accommodate all requests.
You can explore the land of your heritage or simply enjoy the endless beauty and archaeological treasure that is Sicily.
We specialize in custom tours that include:
– All accommodations (be it a hotel, unique selection of villas and private properties, B&B or charming Italian farmhouses (agriturismo).
– Custom tours by an English/Italian speaking guide.
– Comfort travel in an airconditioned private car or van (if the group is larger) with an experienced driver.
– Excursions to outlying islands via deluxe sail or motor yachts.
– Visits to the town of your family’s ancestry (research on family history can also be accomplished).
