We met Anna, our guide, at the meeting point well in advance of the agreed time and started the tour immediately. Anna proved to be very competent and professional, not limiting herself to illustrating what we saw, but explaining in detail the historical and cultural reasons for which all this had been done.

My guide, Anna, was professional and efficient. Her extensive knowledge of local history, architecture and art history was most impressive! And she delivered all this information in an interesting and relevant (to me) manner. I highly recommend Anna and this tour!

My Guide Guseppi was extremely knowledgeable about the whole area he was very personable I was very impressed and would recommend him and the tour

Giuseppe was outstanding. Knew everything about Syracuse and Ortigia and was a delight!

Anna is a FANTASTIC guide. So knowledgeable and a great story teller.
