The day was well organised with the bus picking us up promptly at Giardini Naxos at 7.30. Make sure you are early the bus does not wait for long! Following more pick ups from Taormina etc we were on our way and to our surprise stopped at a service station for 20 mins (I’m assuming as the driver needed to stop due to time on the road - as otherwise a very odd place to stop) in hindsight we would have however bought snacks as there was a lot of time between breakfast and lunch, especially for anyone like us who did not really have time for breakfast with the early pick up point. However they are the downsides the trip was totally worth it! Spectacular sites of the Greek theatre and the paradise caves were brilliant. And Ortigia was beautiful with amazing buildings to go view. Overall a great trip with our guide, Eva being very knowledgable, interesting and funny!
The guide arrived on time, unfortunately we had to drive 45 minutes extra to pick up the other guide before beginning the day! The guide was knowledgeable and helpful. It was quite a long day, and would not be an ideal activity on a hot day. The restaurant we had lunch in at Syracuse was ridiculously expensive - so avoid that if possible. While we enjoyed to tour, it was quite expensive.
Brilliant Etna Tribe Tour, Andrea our guide was fantastic. Very knowledgeable & managed the English speaking & French speakers in the tour very well. Very Impressed. Wasn’t going to go but very happy I did. These places are beautiful & a must see when in Sicily.
We really enjoyed Noto. Syracuse was a bit of a disappointment as the Roman amphitheatre was closed for maintenance and we were unable to locate several of the other monuments within the park area. Would have been better with a guide inside the area.
Pick up and return on time. Corona-proof in these times because 2 mini-vans for 10 people in total, wearing masks inside all the time. Professional and friendly guides. Tour partly guided, partly with free time, enough time for questions and lunch.
