Very beautiful destination and lots to see.

The trip to Monreale was a great success. Great destination! It's nice to move around in a small group. It was not known in advance that, in addition to the English-language guidance, there was Spanish-language guidance. My husband doesn't speak Spanish. Spanish was used more in the trip than English and the guidance was almost better in Spanish. We have used Get Your Guide in many places before and it has worked well.

Unclear description of the tour

Unfortunately, this tour did not meet our expectations. The driver and guide are given, but only one driver came, so a taxi would have been much cheaper. If we had known this in advance, we would not have booked this activity!
