For 6 years, we have been searching for new opportunities to give our guests the best insider experiences at the top attractions in Sicily and we especially love to share our secret places that aren’t open for large group tours. In everything we do, we value the personal connections of our guests with the people behind the scenes who create the products we love in Sicily. We only showcase places and experiences we would share with our closest friends.
Create with love. Design with fantasy and soul. Travel in style and without borders.
For the 7 years I worked in international banking, those three ideas were always in my mind. Back then, I had a dream to show everyone the beauty of Sicily – the sicilian nature, food, cities, and most of all the sicilan people. Fortunately, my dream came true…and that dream became the foundational concept of Sicily Activities.
Now, we scour Sicily for opportunities to give our guests the best insider experiences at the top attractions on the Island – we especially love sharing secret places that aren’t open for large group tours. In everything we do, we value the personal connections of our guests with the people behind the scenes who create the products we love in Sicily. We want our guests to see the places and to taste the things that we personally love and would recommend to our closest friends.
Our team’s friendly, trusting, and enthusiastic attitude coupled with the inspiring Sicilian landscape outside of our window drives our creative passion. Every trip in our travel catalog is as unique as an artist’s creation on his canvas or in his workshop.
I always engage our guests to get to know them and to feel what they like and dislike before offering them the first Itinerary or any travel ideas around the island. With some guests I only need two or three emails to finalize the perfect itinerary, although with more discerning clients we can talk for months leading up to their arrival.
Every guest and every approach is different, but it’s always a pleasure when we become friends even before we meet each other face-to-face in Sicily. The greatest satisfaction, though, comes later when I get the long emails with their feedback, photos, videos, and their gratitude and enthusiasm to come back to Sicily soon. That’s the real reward!
After years of experience in the Italian travel industry, first in Rome and then in Sicily, I wanted to create something special of my own – something beyond the classic idea of a typical tour operator. The main idea was to provide exceptional luxury service to visitors while also offering affordable prices. “Luxury” in this case is not simply providing elevated services such as priority entrances, expensive cars, and professionally-dressed drivers, it is more about carefully responding to our guests’ requests and pay attention to details.
Sicily Activities aims to provide a superior personalized approach for every guest – to anticipate the guest’s needs and make them feel like they are truly home away from home. This ideology became the commitment of every member of the Sicily Activities team. Each member, from drivers to travel designers, are responsible for creating a dream vacation for each of our guests.
The small details of a trip can make the biggest difference. If it rains and the driver is able to wait for the guests, he will. If the airport lost our guests’ luggage, we will find it. If we know about a special occasion, it is our pleasure to organize a small surprise. If our guest needs a doctor or any other special assistance during the trip, we take on the responsibility to help as much as possible. Our attention to detail and family-friendly approach are the pillars of our philosophy at Sicily Activities.
We are also proud to promote sustainability as a primary focus of our business practice. All of our guides are true locals who are young and passionate about Sicily. Most of our partners are family-run businesses producing original and organic local products. The cars we use are modern and we try to make sure they have the lowest ecological impact. We constantly invest in, and support, the local tourism market while trying to maintain the best traditions of Sicily.
