  • Agrigento: Valley of the Temples E-Scooter Tour

    1. Agrigento: Valley of the Temples E-Scooter Tour

    Explore the Valley of the Temples on an exclusive tour by modern electric scooters, which are ecological and easy to drive. Visit the entire archaeological area along the Via Sacra, admiring the ancient temples and many other interesting places along the way. Choose from a 1 or 2-hour tour to suit your schedule.  In addition, you will ride along green routes, specially designed so that you can experience the beautiful nature of the surrounding countryside, dotted with almond trees and ancient olive groves. Here you can explore ancient Roman roads such as Cardo I, the remains of the ancient Greek theater, and the ruins of the necropolis.

    On your adventurous experience, you will see the the Temple of Hera Lacinia, ancient fortifications and tombs, the Temple of Concordia, the Temple of Hercules Victor, and Girgentana goats.

    A lot of fun riding around on scooters and the tour guide was great. scooters were really easy to control and it saved a lot of walking in the heat. Only thing to bear in mind is that there is not really a lot of detail on the tour. If you are looking for lots of depth and information I'd maybe recommend taking one of the regular guides you can find at the entrance.

Joshua was our driver and had excellent knowledge of the area. He spent the drive answering our many questions about Sicilian living, history, and culture. He pointed out many aspects of the landscape along the drive and recommended a local restaurant in Palermo that ended up being our best meal! The Valley of the Temples was a beautiful side trip from the city. This historical park is quite astounding with its rich history and sea views. Quite the sight to see! Thank you to Joshua for making this trip possible for us!

We booked the one-hour electric scooter tour. The tour is really absolutely recommended if you want to experience a bit of culture and not to walk. Our tour leader Marco was really exerted and friendly, adapted the tour to our needs and even always took photos of us at the best places. Highly recommended!

Exceptional experience. I chose her to take my daughter with me and not make her bored and indeed it was. I found the guides very knowledgeable, kind and cheerful. I recommend taking this tour in consideration.

Marco was a very knowledgeable guide, which told us many interesting things about the past and present of Sicilia during the drive to Agrigento. Best use an audio guide for the visit.
