I am one of the best English speaking certified nature guide/city tour guide in the East of Sicily, I worked as Sicily's location scout/translator for BBC nature documentaries . I spend more time in nature than any other place. I especially love to share the secret river pools and waterfalls, coastline of my Sicilian childhood. I also manage my beautiful riverside off-grid farm where I grow all the vegetables needed for my young family's survival. I am an avid researcher of old Sicilian traditions. Fun, knowledge and stunning locations are my main ingredients for an unforgettable experience

Would absolutely recommend an excursion with Carlo. A super guide, I’m so glad we went around the Vendicari reserve with him. Next time I’m in Sicily I will definitely be doing another excursion with Carlo!

Carlo was a very personable, friendly, and knowledgeable guide. He helped us see a part of Sicily we wouldn't have seen otherwise. His enthusiasm and deep understanding of the environment is remarkable and I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending him to anyone who wants to get to know Sicily. He was easy to deal with, responded quickly, and made sure that our experience was special. I feel I've gained a friend, which is not something i was expecting! Do yourself a favour and get in touch with Carlo. You will thank yourself later!

My husband, baby and I had a great day with Carlo. He had lots of interesting knowledge about the plants and animals of Vendicari. Carlo was super friendly and laid back. I really recommend the Vendicari tour in the afternoon as the light was beautiful.

Carlo was amazing. He was friendly and engaging. He truly cares about the environment, the sanctuary and it showed throughout the experience. The sanctuary was beautiful and the winter was a fabulous time to explore without a lot of other people around. Carlo was the highlight of our trip and we booked two experiences with him and hope to see him again soon! Please take this trip - you will love it!
