What makes Papa Vince Tours special?
Your personal tour leaders: Stefano & Vitina Feo, members of the Papa Vince family.

After one Papa Vince Tour, you are sure to want to return … and to convince your friends to come with you!
We offer a limited number of spaces on our tours, often to only 6 guests + 2 tour leaders. This means that you can be assured of personal attention, plus a convivial atmosphere where you not only get to know the other tour guests but also our Sicilian hosts. A Papa Vince Tour is the place where a life-long friendship can be formed.
The Food & Wine Experience
As you venture out on our Papa Vince Sicily tour, be sure to bring a healthy appetite, ready to experience the exuberant flavors of the Sicilian cuisine. The island is incredibly fertile and the produce grown on Sicily includes citrus fruits, olives, eggplant, tomatoes, pistachios, almonds, grapes, plus a cache of fresh seafood and you’ll be sure to experience all these flavors throughout our stay on the island. Our Papa Vince family hosts have included live cookery demonstrations at the family farm and this is often one of the most enjoyable & unique aspects of our tour. It also means that you can make the recipes in your own kitchen back home and continue to live out your Sicilian experience.
You’ll get to experience homemade pasta making techniques as well with cousin Cati who will teach you how to make our Busiate pasta. And for those with a sweet tooth, there are always the pastries mainly prepared with ricotta cheese and almond paste. These demonstrations are included in your tour and are guaranteed to convert you into a Sicilian food aficionado.

During many of our tours, we choose to stay at Agriturismo locations. These are bed and breakfast establishments located on farms in the Sicilian countryside that provide bed and breakfast services along with home-style, natural cooking. They feature all natural ingredients with centuries-old recipes to set your taste buds on an unforgettable journey. They are also a place of learning as you experience the cookery demonstrations, pick up the lingo, enjoy the atmosphere of an Italian family and this is often the most enjoyable aspect of the tour. Tour guests on our Western Sicily tour will spend a day at Papa Vince’s working farm and meet members of Papa Vince’s family.
