A Recent Review of this tour

Mimmo is a fantastic guide. He's extremely knowledgeable, professional, and an absolute pleasure to spend time with. We hired him for this tour and an additional three day tour around Sicily. Everything was perfect. We learned so much from him. Segesta was amazing & beautiful scenery. The tour of the Palatine Chapel in the Norman Palace was also great. Mimmo's explanations of the history & layers of cultural influence were very helpful and interesting as our eyes were taking in all the amazing sights.
