A Recent Review of this tour

Our time with Mimmo was the highlight of our trip to Sicily. He is a very engaging knowledgeable and clearly experienced guide. The trip to and from Agrigento, as well as the actual time there, was also delightful and rich as Mimmo knew and shared a good deal of information and history along the way. We left feeling it was a very enriching experience to be with him and learn/experience the beauty of Sicily. We also always felt in good hands with Mimmo who was both professional and personable. Thanks Mimmo
