Nice group tour around Sicily and amazing cuisine
Jack From England On
5 - Excellent
“Thanks for the opportunity to observe natural olive and lemon trees. Living in a big city, I almost forgot how amazing our nature is. Sicilian places are amazing. They are pure and natural. Here I had everything my soul needed for real relaxation. The day when we visited Etna was unforgettable. To be 1000 meters above the sea and gosh...see this amazing view. And enjoying antipasti and Sicilian pasta after that… What can be better? What about organizational moments, I can say that we had a professional guide, the car was safe, the hotels were really comfortable. We always met at the appointed time. If I had any questions, the guide always tried to help me.”
