What people are saying about Trapani

Alessio is an excellent tour guide… full of interesting information and the history of salt collection in the Trapani/Marsala area. We spent a great deal of time observing the salt pans and learning so much about how the salt collection has changed over time. He took us to an excellent winery where we tasted numerous exceptional wines. We never felt rushed and enjoyed the winery visit thoroughly! The boat tour was also very enjoyable and we went to a lovely little shop to get a few salt souvenirs. Give Alessio your tour business… you won’t be disappointed!!

Alessio was fantastic. He gave us so much information and really enlightened us about salt - it’s production, it’s health benefits and how important it is in our lives. He’s passionate about what he does, and adds a dash of humor often. The whole place was magical, and the sunset tour was extraordinary - we’ll look back on it with very fond memories.

alessio, our guide was perfect. he explained everything very detailed and created a very pleasant atmosphere like with friends. it was an extraordinary evening. Thanks for all!
