A Recent Review of this tour

Great tour guide. Danilo picked up in his immaculate Mercedes and led us through the best of Noto, Syracuse, and Ortigia. He managed to please all 6 of us - the foodie, the archaeologist, the artist, the historian, the nature lover and the sociologist. I highly recommend.
