Sara was wonderful. Knows her stuff. Also arranged a spectacular lunch for my wife and I at Villa Athena overlooking the Concordia Temple as it was my wife's 55th birthday. Highly recommend.

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.

Sara was a lovely person and made the meeting to start the tour very convenient. She knew her history and had lots of Interesting facts to share. Personally I felt the tour was too long and not full of energy but it could have been tiredness on my part.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Laura Actually the walking gets longer when il starts from the private access of Villa Athena Hotel. But having no car there is no other possibility. But this avoids customers driving parking and queue at the regular entrance. This is why many customers choose staying in Villa Athena Hotel ***** and I consent with their choice.

Sara met us promptly at the agreed time and provided us with an EXCELLENT experience! She was exceptionally knowledgeable and prepared with illustrations and enlightening facts. She adjusted her pace to meet our needs and answered every one of our questions thoroughly, and so much more. We got so much more out of our visit than we would have on our own. We highly recommend Sara as a terrific guide!

Sara was fantastic. Her knowledge of the area, the history and the archaeology of the site was exemplary. We enjoyed our morning with her and learned a lot from her. Our 11 yr old grandson was with us and he really enjoyed the tour as well. Sara engaged us all and was very good with keeping the tour on track and interesting. We would highly recommend her and Tours by Locals to all our traveling friends.

Sara is expert on the site and had good visual materials (e.g., layout of temple interiors) to supplement her descriptions. She is fluent in English, but one needs to listen carefully due to her accent, although it wasn't an issue for us. I would recommend her to a friend.

My family and I had a wonderful tour of the Valley of the Temples in Agrigento with Sara. She was extremely knowledgable and we all felt that we learnt such a lot from her. Sara was very flexible and we were able to change our starting time to suit our schedule. I would highly recommend her tour.

Sara's English was great and she provided excellent historical perspective as well as answers to every question we asked, even the ones that were not, strictly speaking, historical. We are a family with two teen-aged boys (as well as Mom and Dad) who are very interested in ancient history and culture. I strongly recommend her as a tour guide for the Valley of the Temples. Thank you, Sara!

As senior citizens, we knew that to get the most out of visiting an archeological site, we needed a qualified guide. Luckily, Sarah was available at the last minute and gave us a comprehensive introduction to the history of Agrigento and a wonderfully informative tour of the Valley of Temples. The pace of the tour was pitched to our mobility and questions we raised about a variety of things were answered succinctly and clearly. The two hour tour was just right for us. Thank you Sarah

Sara met us near the entrance to the Valley of the Temples and provided us a knowledgeable and thorough tour of this breathtaking and incredible place. Having visited Paestum in the past, we were anxious to see Agrigento and compare the two. Agrigento is an amazing place and it only served to make us want to return to Paestum again, this time with a tour guide. Thank you Sara. Aaron and Cindy Johnson Colorado Springs, Colorado USA
