The whole experience was just excellent! They came to pick (four of) us up in Augusta, which is 40+ kilometers from Catania to the south. They already earned a big plus with that, so we did not really mind that they arrived a bit late - and we were on holidays after all. And then Teresa showed up with her positive energy and attitude that stayed with us for the whole day! She explained a lot of things about Etna, life on Sicily, its history! Wine and lunch? Bunch of incredible appetizers and five wines - perfect; at the end we were all full! Perhaps a small minus was the van, as it was not really in the best shape - but on the other side, it gave us the real experience of Sicily, where people also drive a bit differently. :) - Would I repeat it? Definitely!
Good day tour, stripping away the myths of the Sicilian Mafia and the positive things being used to help dismantle their influence in Sicily. Guide was excellent. We stopped at some interesting places on our route through Palermo. I visited the Gelato shop several times during my trip. It was excellent.
Friendly, knowledgeable driver. Visits to Segeste and Erice were without a guide. I liked being able to enjoy these places privately.
A full day exploring the Province of Siracusa led by an excellent guide! We were fortunate to have perfect weather.
Simone was a fantastic guide and shared his extensive knowledge of Mt. Etna and Catania. Would highly recommend.
