What people are saying about Agrigento
I highly recommend this activity. It is so well organized, making it a pleasurable and worry free day. Our driver, Michael, is not only an excellent driver, but also, friendly, polite, has a good sense of humor and knowledgeable about the sites. He engaged the passengers in interesting conversation. This made the time in the car pass quickly. We made a rest stop along the way, where Michael encouraged us to buy a picnic lunch to eat later among the temples. The food we purchased was reasonably priced and delicious. Once arriving at the Temples, Michael showed us where we would meet after our visit and saw us through the ticket booth. We were then free to walk the Valley on our own, with plenty of time to see all the beauty the Valley has to offer at our own pace. It is absolutely spectacular! I could not imagine visiting Sicily without a visit there. After our visit, we walked out the gate to find Michael exactly where he said he would be. It was a truly wonderful day.
Alessio, our guide, was a gem. He was efficient, friendly and clear, and engaged the tour participants in generous conversations, with real skill. He took us to the temples at Agrigento and to the mosaics at the Roman Villa del Casale. On the way he gave us fascinating background information about where we were going and about the story of Sicily more generally. We found this very informative and stimulating. We greatly enjoyed his company, his help and his advice, and thoroughly recommend his service to anyone seeking a great day out from Catania or nearby accommodation.
Great tour of Agrigento - Joshua our driver/guide was fantastic! As a group of 8 we all thought it would be beneficial to have a tour guide at the Valley of the Temples for an additional 15 euros each. Organised smoothly by Joshua - it turned out to be the best idea! We had a brilliant, friendly, enthusiastic and extremely knowledgable Mexican guide who showed us around the amazing UNESCO sites and she made our day! The stop off at Stair of the Turks and our lunch spot on the way back to Palermo were also a lovely bonus. A great day with a great bunch of people :)
Great Guides and Great Adventure. Would do it all again. One of us crashed our motor scooter and the guide was quick to administer first aid and help out in any way possible. All is good, just cuts and scrapes. The wall that was hit survived!! Very kind people and we highly recommend this tour to all.
Donna was an excellent guide. Our escooters worked wonderfully. The pace was easy going. We had lots of time to take pictures, ask questions and we covered all the major temples. Highly recommend this tour. Great value and a thoroughly enjoyable way to see the Valley of the Temples.
