The excursion was very well organized. We went in comfortable vans. Our driver, Vincenzo, was extremely kind and careful with the group. The day didn't help because it rained and we couldn't appreciate Erice in all its beauty. It is an easy way to get to know Segesta and Erice with comfortable transportation. I recommend it.

An excellent day. We had a wonderful time; it was our only option for visiting these fantastic Greek sites since the public transportation in Trapani is virtually non existent. But in all, it was worth the cost. Vincenzo was a wonderful person and we throughly enjoyed sharing the day with him

our tourist guide perfectly explain everything that we need.Trip and all stops are on time.No delay, no confission to the meeting points.Specially highly recommmend Erice. it is fantastic place most worth visiting part of the journey
