What people are saying about Sicily

A highlight of our time in Ortigia. The captain and guide could not have been nicer. We sailed and saw beautiful sights and even had the opportunity to go swimming. The food and wine was an excellent end to an amazing trip. We could not more highly recommend this experience.

It was great, you could see a lot and the shore line of the city is beautiful. The guide was great, he told a lot of interesting facts and could answer all questions, he is very knowledgeable. His English is great (the best I encountered so far in Sicily).

Stephen was great! Fun boat ride and tour of the caves and around ortigia. Would definitely recommend
