Regina is an amazing guide! She knew a great deal about the ruins and history but didn't sound like she was just reciting a script. She adapted the tour to our interests and spoke in a way in which an 8-year-old could be engaged as well as adults. Absolutely loved this tour.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was really a pleasure for me to be with you...and to listen to the interesting comments of your children...your little daughter when she looked to me and said: "When the greeks discovered that the sun is not transported by god Apollo from east to west but is moving becouse the earth is turning around, don't you think that the people had been upset?" That's the question, my dear , til today! Religion and Science... My compliments and warm regards to you all!

Regina, our guide, was very knowledgeable and friendly. Very helpful during the thunderstorm which struck during the tour.

Date: Jun 15/18

Regina was more than fluent, meaning she communicated perfectly with both us adults and our teenagers who were fully engaged and entranced by what they were hearing and seeing. I was already fairly knowledgeable about the sites we visited but Regina really made the ruins and the rubble come alive. She was well read and provided quotes and illustrations from scholars and archeologists from her well stocked binder. She was happy, smiley, vivacious, and clearly loves people and what she does!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Ellen, thanks a lot for all these warm and nice compliments! And: it was a pleasure to share with you the day! As I said to you, as soon as I realize that my guests are "special guest" I try to give them all what I can give and this was the case with you and your family! Many greetings to Olympia and Penelope and of course also to your husband See you next time in Sicily! Regina

Regina is wonderful! She is very knowledgeable not only on history but also on the local flora and fauna. Our tour with her was a joy. We had Segesta to ourselves on a beautiful December day and her tour widened our minds as the lovely weather floated our souls.

Regina Hundemer was the perfect guide; incredibly knowledgeable, personable and enthusiastic! Our group of 6 would have liked to have had her guide us throughout the rest of our explorations of western Sicily! She would even point out little interesting things throughout the Segesta site. For example, she showed us the wild Mandrake plant that grew by one of the pathways and was used as the coma-inducing poison in Romeo and Juliet. If you want the site to come alive for you, hire fabulous Regina!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: THANK YOU, Jo Ann, it was a pleasure for me to be with you!

Regina has been an excellent guide, very knowledgeable, passionate and friendly. I high recommend to discover the ruins of Segesta with her, since she will be able to make you understand the history behind this site. The visit was very interesting and interactive. I would recommend it to people keen to history and curious to know a bit more about Mediterranean culture.

Regina proved to be a most excellent guide. We would recommend her without hesitation. She was very knowledgeable, engaging and generous of her time and person. Most of all, we appreciated the fact that she was able to interact quite a bit with our 9 years old son by asking him questions that were a propos and well adapted to his age. The temperature was excruciatingly warm, especially as we were moving toward mid-day, but she managed to nevertheless keep us engaged.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: IT was a great pleasure for me !THANKS A LOT and have a good time!Regina
