Our guide was very sweet but her English was limited. Driver and a trainee had basically no English. We were to go to a castle which was closed at the time we were there. She also brought us to a museum that was closed. We were supposed to go to a winery which never happened instead she convinced a local restaurant owner to let us in for a glass of wine. She then found another friend who let us see the way the olives were made into oil and sampled that, I guess to make up for nothing being opened and no winery. She had little knowledge it seemed of anything as she was looking things up and reading from Wikipedia. She was on her phone for most all of the trip or speaking in Italian to the driver and trainee. It was the worst tour I’ve ever taken
I had this tour on my own and there was a team of people looking after me. It started of with the driver and the tour guide. They picked me up and drove to the first stop which was wine and olive oil tasting at this man's farm who was well known to be one of the people who had public stood against the mafia. Was such a priviledge knowing him! There was no one else so we had the farm to ourselves! I dont drink but the wine apparantly is of flowery taste and proper organic which is rare. Then we embarked to corleone in which we met with another tour guide. He told us about corleone then we went to the museum where another english speaking tour guide gave us the detail of the mafia history and people involved. When we had lunch we drove to see the mafia's houses including the one where it was converted into the police station. Special thanks to my personal tour guide as not only she was with me but I had a problem with my sim card and she took me to three phone shops to fix it,
Mafia, Anti-Mafia, Separtisten und zum Schluss hervorragenden Wein, eine tolle Mischung!
