The day was well organised with the bus picking us up promptly at Giardini Naxos at 7.30. Make sure you are early the bus does not wait for long! Following more pick ups from Taormina etc we were on our way and to our surprise stopped at a service station for 20 mins (I’m assuming as the driver needed to stop due to time on the road - as otherwise a very odd place to stop) in hindsight we would have however bought snacks as there was a lot of time between breakfast and lunch, especially for anyone like us who did not really have time for breakfast with the early pick up point. However they are the downsides the trip was totally worth it! Spectacular sites of the Greek theatre and the paradise caves were brilliant. And Ortigia was beautiful with amazing buildings to go view. Overall a great trip with our guide, Eva being very knowledgable, interesting and funny!
We had a really good tour! The guide was very sweet and extremely knowledgeable of Siracusa and the history of the city and Sicily in general. It was only us and one other couple and the guide spoke both Spanish and English perfectly. The reason for 4 rather than 5 starts is that the focus on the tour was a bit more on Siracusa and history than on the food and wine. It also complemented each other and the food and wine was still very tasty and interesting, but if one was expecting a "pure" wine/food tour, it might not have met expectations. Anyway, can be recommended!
We had a most wonderfull guiding tour in Ortigia with Valery as our exellent guide. She told alive about the history of Ortigia and answered all our questions (and that was many - we are journalists). We highly recomend this tour (and Valery) to everyone that wants a perfect and enlightening holiday in the most charming place throughout the Mediterranean! Anne-May, Thor-Egil and Lawrence
Giuseppe was fantastic! We felt so lucky to have him walk us through the sites and history of Syracuse's archeological park, as well as, Ortygia. He knows SO much about the history and answered all of the questions we peppered him with. We highly recommend taking this tour with him!!!
Our guide Valera was wonderful. She kept us entertained and interested, the food was excellent as was the wine. We got to see some amazing places and she pointed out other places of interest for us to visit later. A really enjoyable experience.
