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.

Only my second day in Sicily, so was still getting my bearings. Marco came and picked me up bang on time and we set off through Palermo to pick up the others. Terrific driving and he gave us the history or Sicily whilst we journeyed to the west coast. There was enough time to see everything, although maybe another 30 mins in Erice would have been helpful. Come prepared with water, sun cream, insect repellent and a good pair of walking shoes. It also helps if you know a little something about Segesta and Erice before you see them as the signs only reveal pieces of history. A really lovely day out otherwise! However, I can imagine it would be hard in the high summer - I went in September 2021 and it was just cool enough to get around.
