I highly recommend this activity. It is so well organized, making it a pleasurable and worry free day. Our driver, Michael, is not only an excellent driver, but also, friendly, polite, has a good sense of humor and knowledgeable about the sites. He engaged the passengers in interesting conversation. This made the time in the car pass quickly. We made a rest stop along the way, where Michael encouraged us to buy a picnic lunch to eat later among the temples. The food we purchased was reasonably priced and delicious. Once arriving at the Temples, Michael showed us where we would meet after our visit and saw us through the ticket booth. We were then free to walk the Valley on our own, with plenty of time to see all the beauty the Valley has to offer at our own pace. It is absolutely spectacular! I could not imagine visiting Sicily without a visit there. After our visit, we walked out the gate to find Michael exactly where he said he would be. It was a truly wonderful day.
Great tour of Agrigento - Joshua our driver/guide was fantastic! As a group of 8 we all thought it would be beneficial to have a tour guide at the Valley of the Temples for an additional 15 euros each. Organised smoothly by Joshua - it turned out to be the best idea! We had a brilliant, friendly, enthusiastic and extremely knowledgable Mexican guide who showed us around the amazing UNESCO sites and she made our day! The stop off at Stair of the Turks and our lunch spot on the way back to Palermo were also a lovely bonus. A great day with a great bunch of people :)
I was very impressed with this full day tour. I was picked up from my hotel on time. During our coach journey our tour guide Michael gave us information about the tour and places we were passing. At Agrigento our guide Alessandra was excellent. The Valley the Temples were amazing. Later afternoon we visited the village of Sciacca for about an hour, I found it very interesting! Probably restaurant choice for lunch was a bit expensive. I strongly recommend this tour to anyone who is visiting Sicily.
This site is a must-see. Our driver, Michael, earns top ratings. He is a great driver (Palermo is wild), has a great personality, is very knowledgeable and punctual and delivers information in English clearly. The van is clean & comfortable. Rest stops were appropriate. Overall, the tour is highly recommended, and so is Michael.
Our guide was courteous and did everything he could to make our trip comfortable. His suggestions for lunch and refreshment stops we’re very good. The actual site of the Temples is fabulous and is well worth the visit.
