We had a wonderful experience & would do it again! It was so nice to be on a tour with only a few other people compared to s bus load! Our guide was extremely knowledgeable about the history of each city, including the surrounding areas, so when we arrived at each destination it was more meaningful to be there. We even had lunch together in Modica before visiting the chocolate store, Antica Dolceria Bonajuto (I kinda thought we were going to have a tour of the chocolate making process...we didn’t but the tastings were lovely!) If You are raking this tour in the summer my advice would be to wear a wide-brim hat or carry an umbrella ~ and sunglasses too! It was a great day!!!
Great day out in Siracusa and Noto. Francesco, our guide, was extremely friendly and knowledgeable about all the spots we visited. He really made our day! The all booking process was pretty smooth except one call I received the day before telling me that my pick up location had changed. After looking it up on the map I called them back and managed to reconfirm the original pick up location which was ultimately more convenient for us. Besides that and wishing to spend more time in Ortigia, everything was fine. We also enjoyed the food and drinks provided and the other customers we met during the tour.
This trip is very very good! The best! Alessio was superb. He knows the history and is passionate about his island and will tell you interesting facts about the places you visit.The trip- Noto, Modica And Ragusa Ibla is a great introduction to the SE of Sicily. He has many other trips and tailored journeys to suit any holiday requests. Would definitely recommend.At the end of the day we felt we’d left a good friend - all we could ask for on our first visit
I have joined and met tour guides in my travels but Alessio Patane is by far the most professional. He accepted the tour even if I was a solo traveler. He was on time and was spot on in all my questions. There was never a dull moment in the tour. He was passionate in explaining the narrative behind the places we visited and was ready even on questions beyond the tour. I highly recommend this tour and Alessio Patane.
This trip was such a great experience, the amount of time in each stop was sufficient for the quick experience. Tony was an excellent guide and shared local knowledge every step of the way. The only downside was that the package said the entrance ticket to the necropolis in Syracuse was included, but when we got there we still had to purchase a ticket.
