Really enjoyed this trip. Full of culture, history and alot of significance. Our driver Alessio and his colleague Natalie were absolutely amazing. Friendly, experienced, very knowledgeable and welcoming too. I learnt alot from Alessio; his local knowledge is unbeatable. He made sure we enjoyed the whole experience and looked after us from beginning to end. Thank you.

Alessio is an AMAZING Tour Leader! He has a wealth of knowledge about everything you'd ever want to know (if I recall correctly, he is basically a history professor) and he speaks English fluently/perfectly. The pick up/drop off is convenient and his transportation is great. I HIGHLY recommend his tours!! I wish I had more time in Sicily to take more day tours with him!

Alessio, our guide, was a gem. He was efficient, friendly and clear, and engaged the tour participants in generous conversations, with real skill. He took us to the temples at Agrigento and to the mosaics at the Roman Villa del Casale. On the way he gave us fascinating background information about where we were going and about the story of Sicily more generally. We found this very informative and stimulating. We greatly enjoyed his company, his help and his advice, and thoroughly recommend his service to anyone seeking a great day out from Catania or nearby accommodation.
