Sara was a great guide - she carried maps and pictures with her to help us understand what we were seeing . Although the signage was good, Sara was able to put things into context and provide additional information. Glad we had her along.

Sara offers an excellent insiders tour of the valley of the Temples! Accept no substitutes!!! I encourage you to let her take you back to the time of the Greeks establishing their city and temples in Agrigento. She was fantastic!

Sara was very knowledgeable not only about our tour of Agrigento but also our other random questions about fauna and flora, Sicily etc. She brought a really useful binder with pictures to help illustrate what she was talking about. Her english was very good and we had no problems understanding her.

Sara gave us a fascinating and highly informative tour of the Valley of the Temples; she brought it to life for us in a way which the written guidebook is unable to do. She was considerate and helpful and gave us a leisurely, yet in depth, picture of this magnificent place. Thank you.

All four of us enjoyed Sara's tour of the Valley of the Temples. She gave us, not just an account of the temples, their design and construction, but also an understanding of the history of the Greek city of Akragas and the region. She answered all of our questions about the temples, as well as other subjects, like flowers and plants we passed, and aspects of more recent Agrigento history. Her tour was full of informative, often with a bit of humor; all together a very enjoyable morning together.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you. It was a real pleasure working with so passionate travelers.

My wife and I had a very enjoyable tour of the Valley of the Temples in May, 2019 with Sara. On a beautiful morning, Sara guided along in an unhurried fashion, teaching us about Greek architecture and history as we walked and admired the site. In addition to the temples, Sara shared her knowledge of the flowering plants and animals that we passed along the way. Having a guide like Sara made the visit very worthwhile.

Enjoyable tour of the temples. Certainly worthwhile to gain the most from this fascinating site particularly an understanding of the design and construction of these famous monuments

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for rating the tour. I regret not having catched your interest in the social and religious aspects of Ancient Greece since I would have customized better my tour. I experienced that most visitors like to know about temples architecture more than religion. And we guides tend to do that. Once a lady, writing issues, required me in advance to focus just on Demeter religion and we spoke all time about that, or recently with a small group it was requested me before to focus on agriculture

Sara was waiting for our party of 3 at the agreed on location. I appreciated that she had print outs of articles on the temples and could explain some questions I had about roof construction with illustrations that helped me visualize how the roofs were achieved. Two friends, who have backgrounds in horticulture, were with me and appreciated Sara's knowledge in the temple area. We went on to the fabulous Garden of Kolymbetra with Sara. Sara was informed and patient with a multitude of questions.

While Agrigento may not be a tourist-centered city, our tour was fabulous. We were shown ancient churches, renaissance-era opera houses, and views reserved for the movies. Sara was extremely knowledgeable, a great conversationist, and is local, so food recommendations from her are a must!

Our guide, Sara, met us right on time as we changed the meeting location at the last minute. She was very responsive to our emails/texts. As a guide she was extremely knowledgeable and personable. Her English was excellent. She went beyond her guiding service to help us find a parking spot and how to pay.

Sara (our guide) was very accomodating- we were well over an hour late, although we kept in touch. However, it was a very hot day and truth be told... after having been to Athens acropolis three times, Crete, Epheseus and Delphi and other ancient Greek and Roman sites... Agrigento was not as impressive as I had hoped ! Perhaps we should have been there very early in the morning when it might have been cooler, and really explored everything including the gardens - which are said to be beautiful.

Sara was an excellent guide for our tour. Her knowledge of the sites was extensive and her friendly manner was enjoyable. She also carried with her diagrams of what the ancient floor plans of the temples would have looked like, which helped us to imagine what the temples were like when they were built. Thank you Sara.
