What people are saying about Trapani

I booked this tour and a half day tour spur of the moment and so glad I did. This was a great day trip from Palermo. The drivers let us know important things/what to do at each stop. I didn’t know much about any of the stops when booking, especially Erice. Erice turned out to be one of my favorite stops from both of the tours I did. Definitely recommend!

Very nice three places that are difficult or impossible to reach without a car. Price/performance top. You practically book a group taxi and explore the places for yourself for 1-3 hours. Incredibly beautiful and very different places. Great for a full or 3/4 day trip. Very nice and good driver.

Lovely tour with small group of people. Plenty of time to exprore sites on your own, which was my preference sice I dont drive. Adriano (our driver) was great!

Perfect day trip. The bus was clean and comfortable. The guide very friendly and knowledgeable.

Melissa was very interesting, engaging, informative, friendly, considerate.
