What people are saying about Catania

A very full day at excellent historic sites

Allessio is a very good driver and extremely well informed guide. Information about sites to be visited is provided en route to sites and at the Valley in Agrigento, visitors are dropped at one end and met at Gate V at the other end. The trip from Catania takes about two hours. The Greek temples are fabulous and it is an easy, if quite long walk, with a drink/food stop in the centre (pricey). We were fortunate that we were the only guests and negotiated to go to the museum rather than having a lunch stop. The museum has a well curated collection. The Roman mosaics at Piazza Armerina are spectacular. We were unfortunate that a thunderstorm had taken out the villa’s lights and we had to view them in gloomy conditions but they gave a wonderful insight into 12th century daily life and are the most extensive, well preserved mosaics we have seen. We had only a week in Sicily and were delighted to find this tour, the only one that visits both sites in the one day. Great day, great guide!

Well worth the visit to the Valle dei Templi and Villa Romana del Casa

Used Sicily Grand Tours for this trip. Alessio, our guide, was friendly, knowledgeable and his English is very good. He gives you a bit of the history of Sicily on the journey to Agrigento and the first stop at the Valle dei Templi where you get an hour and a half to explore on your own. We found this sufficient time including grabbing an arancino for lunch. Then it's off to the Villa Romana del Casa near Piazza Armerina where you again have sufficient time to view the well preserved mosiacs. Then back to Catania. Expect a long day as it is not a short journey from Catania but both sites are well worth visiting.

Lovely day out exploring oriental Sicily

Great day out in Siracusa and Noto. Francesco, our guide, was extremely friendly and knowledgeable about all the spots we visited. He really made our day! The all booking process was pretty smooth except one call I received the day before telling me that my pick up location had changed. After looking it up on the map I called them back and managed to reconfirm the original pick up location which was ultimately more convenient for us. Besides that and wishing to spend more time in Ortigia, everything was fine. We also enjoyed the food and drinks provided and the other customers we met during the tour.

A brilliant day, loaded with great insight.

We learned more about Syracuse, Notto, Catania, Sicily, the Greeks, Romans, Carthaginians, Normans, Phoenicians and Sicilians in one day with our guide Alessio, than in all our pre-trip research. A great story teller, Alessio mapped out the settlements, battles, power struggles and mythologies behind the sites we visited. A day later, when we struggled to find a cab to the airport, he even combed his network to help us out. We hope Alessio is still telling Sicily’s story when we next visit. Mille grazie!

Syracuse and Noto Full-Day Tour Reviewed by Ian, 07/08/2019

Super knowledgeable guide (Emmanuel) great event, brilliant day.

Emmanuel is very skilled and brings enormous knowledge of geology, culture and archeology to his work. He was able to manage quite difficult, nuanced questions and gave us complex information in a completely digestible, sensitive and often funny way. I really appreciated his capacity to reflect history, environmental impacts and cultural differences in such a balanced discussion - just made the value of my experience so much richer.
