This was a perfect day trip. Our driver Joshua was excellent, he was witty and conversational, he did an awesome job of pointing out sights along the way to our destinations which was a nice added bonus considering this isn’t a guided tour. I wish we had more time in Segesta but the sights were beautiful.

Veru nice trips. First segesta was pretty cool Temple is amazing teatre also with panoramatic view. Second stop salt pans was boring because just stop near one field some explanation and Thats all. Last stop erice was really great beautiful city in medieval style with many churches and pretty panorama.

I took the Segesta / salt pans of Trapani / Erice tour on Sunday 26 September 2021 in a minivan accompanied by Mr. Michael Thur. I wanted to congratulate you on your professionalism, kindness and availability. Excellent service.

Friendly, knowledgeable driver. Visits to Segeste and Erice were without a guide. I liked being able to enjoy these places privately.

Michael was great and the sites beautiful! I recommend it!
