What people are saying about Catania

As a group of twenty-something’s we had a delightful time!

Had the absolute pleasure of meeting Marco who was our guide. Right of the bat I can tell you Marco’s a very kind man and we had no issue immediately getting along with him, his enthusiasm for the island is genuine and it shows. Hearing about the Etna and her surroundings was delightful, we even got some personalized tips of places to explore based on what we enjoyed seeing. Other than that the horses we’re very nice! I had a friend with me who’d never sat on a horse in their life and they had a wonderful time. (A.k.a. very beginner friendly) The lunch was traditional and homegrown with a wide array of well-matched flavors. I could definitely recommend this trip.

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.

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

Nice guide. Fluent in English. Knowledgeable of the subject matter.

Guide arrived to pick us up about 20 minutes late, but I learned that was GetYourGuides fault. Guide was friendly and engaging. Fluent in English. Was knowledgeable regarding a variety of topics relevant to the trip that day. Allowed the group of three couples independence to determine what each would like to do. Only recommendation would be to make stops at the homes destroyed by Etna and a view of Etna on the drive up. Otherwise, great trip.

Fantastic & inspiring tour and wonderful guide Antonio!

Antonio was such a knowledgeable, committed, patient and pleasant person. Very flexible and adjusting all wishes of the group. The tour has been an amazing combo of relaxing and intense activities. Don't miss going all the way up to Etna!!! If the day is clear it is the greatest experience of Sicily! Taormina is superb and fancy, take your time to enjoy it!
