A Recent Review of this tour

Wow! What a fantastic guide! We enjoyed every moment of our tour with Giorgio, who is an extremely knowledgeable and charming guide. His English is perfect. He illuminated for us the magic of Segesta and Erice and the beauty of the salt pans and the vistas of the coastline of the Mediterranean. Highly recommended.
