    Christina was an amazing guide, showing us some of the sights in Ortega we wouldn't have known to look for, as well as taking us to some brilliant restaurants for delicious food. She was a charming person who gave great conversation to everyone there, and I work of highly recommend the tour to anyone who really wants to see the city in the evening

    Informative and fun evening

    We had a great time on this tour and would recommend it as a great way to learn about Ortigia’s history and about the food and wine of the vicinity. Everyone we were introduced to by Valeria ( our charming guide) was warm , friendly and gave us explanations about the delicious food we were sampling. We also tasted and learnt about the wine produced in Sicily. Thanks also to Alex for keeping us informed/ giving directions etc. Great!

    Very good Tour with Siracusa's history shining through

    We had a really good tour! The guide was very sweet and extremely knowledgeable of Siracusa and the history of the city and Sicily in general. It was only us and one other couple and the guide spoke both Spanish and English perfectly. The reason for 4 rather than 5 starts is that the focus on the tour was a bit more on Siracusa and history than on the food and wine. It also complemented each other and the food and wine was still very tasty and interesting, but if one was expecting a "pure" wine/food tour, it might not have met expectations. Anyway, can be recommended!
