The trip to Ragusa, Modica and Noto was excellent… though, our guide didn’t speak much English and served more as a driver to each site than an actual guide. Some local information was provided and some rudimentary conversation was had in Italian. It would have been appreciated to have individual maps provided ahead of the drop-offs. The water bottles provided were appreciated. A little less time in Ragusa would have allowed a bit more time in Noto. The recommendation to visit the Bonajuta chocolatier in Modica was appreciated - and is highly recommended. Our ‘guide’ was an excellent driver and did make two stops so that some great panoramic photos could be taken of Ragusa and Noto. Highly recommend visiting all three towns - given our circumstances, it was the best way for us to enjoy them within our schedule. Much appreciated!

We are very pleased with the correct contact with GetYourGuide. The trip itself lived up to expectations. Particular kudos to our driver, a friendly, amiable man with whom we felt completely safe.

We had a nice day visiting Ragusa, Modica, and Noto. If you are looking for just transportation to these locations it is perfect. Once you arrive to your destination, you are on your own.

Beautiful towns all worth visiting. Our driver Francesco was very informative and great company
