About Tradizione Turismo & Best of Sicily

Best of Sicily (Sicily's most popular online travel guide, with two million readers annually) went online in 1999 and Tradizione Turismo was founded around the same time. This reservation site (the only one of its kind for travel services in Sicily) is the result of a unique collaboration spanning several years, and (most importantly for you) a genuinely personalized approach to customer service.

The site itself is simple, and very similar to other reservation sites. Select the tour or other service that interests you, then the date and other details such as the number of people in your group (for whom you'll be reserving). The entire process takes just a few steps, concluding with payment using a credit card on our secure server. Then, usually on the next business day, you'll receive an email confirming your reservation. Naturally, we're available to answer questions. Yes, it's possible to reserve a tour directly online without sacrificing personal service to technology!

That's an important point. This is not simply an automated online service but a company operated by experienced travel professionals. It's the "real deal," not a "virtual" agency.

We're always here; we oversee the site directly, so it's easy to by email, fax or phone with any query --either about your online reservation or about any service we offer. If you phone us, please remember the time difference from wherever you're calling, for example an hour from London and six hours from New York.

Based in Palermo (Sicily's regional capital and largest city), Tradizione Turismo is a service of Chat & Tour S.r.l., a tour operator registered and licensed as such in Italy and a member of IATA (International Air Transport Association), ASTA (American Society of Travel Agents) and other professional organisations.

It's the people who make your tour (or other travel service) a success. Tradizione Turismo is operated by Vincenzo Ciceraro and Valeria Gullotta with the support of several employees and various guides. Best of Sicily is the creation of Vincenzo Salerno, a true "Renaissance Man" raised on two continents and distinguished as a writer, historian, artist and programmer.
