We booked with Handy Sicily (Paolo and co.) during our stay in Sicily for car transport between Noto and Planeta Winery. They were extremely punctual, friendly, and helpful. The car was clean and everything about the service was top-rate, including our driver, Domenico. They went above and beyond in terms of service, particularly when I left my phone in the... More

Paolo Mortellaro was our guide/driver for the majority of our tour. We, my husband, our friend and I, found him to be very personable and knowledgeable, with a deep love for his country. Whilst we visited all the must see tourist sites we also had other experiences only made possible because we were with him. We very much enjoyed our... More

A personal, varied and extremely interesting trip around Sicily for 11 days. It was very relaxing being driven by either Paolo or his assistant Domenico in a very comfortable Mercedes. Organisation of our trip from Palermo to Catania by email was efficient and easy with Paolo and once we arrived in Sicily all went seamlessly. As we wished to visit... More

Paolo: Thank you so much for being such a wonderful driver/guide. We are even more grateful for having a new friend in Sicily. We have driven all over the area of Rome, Tuscany and Umbria. I don’t think that we could have done it in Sicily. We probably would not have gotten into the less crowded, rural areas and their... More

My wife and I had a truly exceptional experience with Handy Sicily during our 11-day tour of Sicily. Paolo has put together a superb itinerary.

We had a great seven day trip around Sicily with Paolo during the Xmas holidays. Paolo provides great personal service from the time he meets your plane at the airport till he drops you off at the end of the trip.

We have just completed a sensational week with Paolo. The trip exceeded our expectations - accomodation was first class, each hotel was a different experience. Paolo patiently imparted his deep knowledge and love for Sicily - perhaps a little hard to do with three crazy not so young Aussies. He drove skillfully through the narrow streets while we enjoyed the... More
