Wonderful day trip, enough time to see everything quietly. Trapani interesting, but nothing more, without the guide it would have been colorless. Segesta was a highlight. Driver Salvatore drove great!! The hairpin bends towards the high-altitude Erice were taken flawlessly. Compliment for Guide and Driver.

Had a very nice day! The travel times are very manageable and you come to beautiful places where enough time is made available. We come from the Netherlands and our guide had lived in Amsterdam for years, so he also spoke Dutch well. We didn't expect this at all, but that really made it extra fun!

Segesta was very beautiful with the theater and temple. We just had to wait a while for our bus to come back. Erice was very well worth the visit, especially with the view from the top. Thanks to the driver with his great skills to take us all the way up. I really looked forward to the salt pans, I saw really nice pictures with red/pink lakes. But this was quite disappointing, we stopped for ten minutes to have a quick look around. It is in the middle of industry. It was oke to see though. In erice we had little time because the bus had to make a detour, I would have liked some more time. Now we had 100 minutes
