If ‘10’ is excellence then the Sicilian Sisters provided a 20!

This was our second personalized tour with Francesca and we never thought anything could exceed the first. Our second experience was magnificent and the plus was we got her sister Giovanna too. Their professionalism, attention to detail, and passion for their Sicily is unmatched. No request was too small; they were always available for guidance, advice and translations. They ‘flexed’ the schedule to meet our needs and requests and everything from the professional drivers, local tour guides, and the hotels were taken care of seamlessly. Their smiles, laughter and engaging sense of humor make you feel like they are warm friends. You can’t help but want a return visit with Francesca and Giovanna at your side. If you are looking for a vacation where everything is taken care of and you don’t have to think about anything but simply enjoy your experience and create life-long memories, the Sicilian Sisters are a 5-Star PLUS.

The love Francesca and Giovanna share for their homeland is infectious.

With Sicilian Sisters Travel you will experience a lifetime dream vacation!!

These two are the very best at planning an amazing experience around the Island of Sicily and the country of Italy.  We had a once in a lifetime journey through the most beautiful sites in Sicily, we enjoyed delicious food, beautiful bed and breakfast homes, private apartments and boutique hotels along the way.  Sicilian Sisters are great at planning all the details from transportation to accommodations to site seeing, just leave the planning to them and all you have to do is enjoy a worry free vacation.  My husband and I can’t say enough about how great our trip was scheduled and planned as well as excellent communication before, during and after our trip.  We highly recommend Sicilian Sisters Travel for your next vacation to Italy!!

It made all the difference having you with us.  

Dear Francesca & Giovanna: we thank you again for a wonderful visit to Sicily! Your presence made visit to family the highlight of the two weeks for us all! Your gift to us was being there to aid us in every way possible.   Grazie for a terrific time and see you next year!

Sicilian Sisters Travel included all the key places I wanted to visit and added their personal touch to the trip to make it a memorable one. 

When I finally decided to plan a trip back to Italy I wanted to experience it differently than I had previously when I came with a student group from the USA.  I contacted Sicilian Sisters Travel and communicated what regions and places I wanted to visit and they planned a trip of a lifetime for me and my family members.  They planned special dinners, excursions, wine tastings, cannoli demonstrations and gave us the local Italian community feel by booking beautiful apartments and bed & breakfast places to stay.  I recommend Sicilian Sisters Travel to everyone I speak to because if you are looking to create a memorable trip of a lifetime specific to your travel needs they will accomplish that.  Thank you Giovanna and Francesca, we look forward to booking our next Italy trip with you soon.

Francesca and Giovanna were not only our guides but also our interpreters.  They made our vacation most enjoyable and entertaining.  

There was never a dull moment.  Without them, we could have never appreciated the town of our ancestors and our distant relatives, who had been virtually strangers to us.  Through their interpretation, they enabled us all to not only “talk” but “laugh” together.  Without them we could never have appreciated the town’s culture and way of living.  At the end of our journey, we could not help but feel that our grandparents were looking down and smiling at us.  Truly, this was one of the most memorable vacations of our life.  We will never forget it…..and both Francesca and Giovanna!

Our genealogy journey through Sicily proved to be an incredible experience largely due to Francesca & Giovanna’s expertise in all aspects of our trip.

Both sisters are remarkably energetic, enthusiastic, warm and caring ladies who far surpassed all our expectations. They made it an unforgettable milestone event in our lives for which we are most grateful.
