Hi! My name is Mario and I am a tourist guide since 1995
I was born in Amsterdam in 1972 of a Sicilian father and a dutch mother. I lived my first fifteen years in Holland and Switzerland, to then reach my beloved Sicily and never leave her. I have been a tourist guide since 1995 and I have worked all over Sicily for several national and international tour operators and agencies.
Some years ago, always maintaining a close collaboration with t.o. and agencies, I have created my own agency and I have become the owner of different vehicles. The “Experience Sicily” agency is based in Taormina, where we also have the pleasure to provide services to some of the most renowned hotels and yachts. From there, I offer my services, my experience, and that of my closest collaborators for any destination on the island.
My personal skills and passions are the history of Sicily, history of art, agriculture with specialization in wine and olive oil, vulcanology, music, and Botanics.
I hope to see you soon in Sicily!
Until 2010 I was mainly guide and tour leader of Sicily tours for foreign tourist groups. From 2011 until today I have continued to make tours but private and I have specialized as a local guide on the east coast of Sicily and on private day excursions. In 2012 I also became the contact person for the guided excursions for the 5* hotels of the Belmond group in Taormina.
