A Recent Review of this tour

My husband and I arranged a tour with Valentina M. to view the Valley of the Temples in Agrigento. It was a wonderful and fun filled day. Valentina is a knowledgeable and entertaining teacher. She is well versed in the geographic, historic, and cultural significance of the site. There was not a single question that Valentina was unable to answer fully and completely. It was the highlight of my trip to Sicily.
