Good way to see Monreale and Cefalu
, Nov 2019
Because of the heavy rain on the day of the tour, I was especially happy to be picked up and dropped off at my hotel. Michael, the operator was very courteous, knowledgeable and ON TIME. This is not a guided tour. He basically takes you to the site and tells you where to go and what time to be back. While driving he answered all questions cheerfully and overall had friendly demeanor.
Not a guided tour but worth a visit

Both Monreale and Cefalu are well worth a visit with the Monreale Cathedral and Cefalu seaside location. This tour was not a guided tour - only transport was provided with driver advising when and where to return to the vehicle. No maps were provided or details of the sights to be visited thus it was a bit of pot luck what you got to see
Great tour

We were picked up right on time. Given great information. The Monreale Cathedral is amazing and worth a visit. We were given time in Cefalu to explore and have lunch. Then delivered back to our apartment. Well worth the tour.

Collected from hotel in Palermo Two other couples collected Mini bus ride was uncomfortable and seemed to lack suspension Monreale beautiful,had approx 1hr there Another bumpy uncomfortable drive to Cefalù then 2hrs to explore Cefalù. We visited the catherdral Lots of restaurant trying to get your attention. Worth a trip but would recommend a new van and driver We didn’t tip due to the rushed uncomfortable journey Both places however worth visiting
Not worth the money and did not feel safe

The driver was rude and did not speak English or even try to engage with us. He was not welcoming and the opposite of the friendliness of others in Palermo. He vaped and texted while driving. Did not receive any kind of information or guidance. Would have been a lot cheaper and better to have done the trip on our own.

This was an excellent tour that gave us the opportunity to visit the Cathedral at Monreale and the seaside town of Cefalu. After a brief orientation at Monreale we were given ample time to explore the cathedral and the cloisters on our own. Cefalu is a charming seaside town - we were also oriented and given time on our own to explore and eat lunch. There were many restaurant options many with sea views. It was a 1/2 day in length which gave us remaining time in the day to explore Palermo. We would definitely recommend the tour to others. The tour guide promptly picked us up at our hotel and was an excellent host with lots of information about our tour sites, Palermo and Sicily.
