Hello, we really want to thank and congratulate Manuele, our guide who took care of our transportation to the activity. He was super nice, considerate and patient. He kept our things and waited for us for 4 hours without ever showing the slightest impatience. In addition, he was able to answer all our questions about Sicily, and other local legends. We also want to thank and congratulate the two body rafting guides who are real pros, attentive, considerate, responsive and adorable. Being guided in this magical place by such people really made the excursion unforgettable. ❤️

We had a lovely day with a great guide, nice food and a lot of action ☺️
