“We make our guests experience Sicily like locals do”
Most of the tours are based on adventures lived by Andrea Giardina while exploring the remotest corners of Sicily and surrounding archipelagos with friends and guests. Andrea, founder and himself a certified tour guide at Wild Sicily, is a native Sicilian born and raised up on the Etna Volcano Slope. His sportfishing and adventure travels passion together with the architect-planner background, always pushed him walking the extra mile to explore and interpret lots of hidden spots of Sicilian territory. Doing this he met a lot of bizarre local people and discovered extraordinary forgotten path, now part of each itinerary.
