What people are saying about Sicily

Roberto is an aesthete with such a passion for his subject - Sicily!

We were picked up at 10.30am by Roberto, our tour guide.As we sped along in his battered Ford he explained about the lava, it's use in building and architecture,it's fertile minerals,the importance of the sun,the wind,the rain and the old ways of making wine. We started with a small producer, meeting up with two other couples and their guides.We sampled a white, a rose and two reds, all generously poured, the perfumed white proved to be our favourite of the day. Next we went to a slightly bigger outfit where we sat down at tables and were given a light meal of foccacia, sun-dried tomatoes, aubergine pickled with celery, olives marinated with fennel, small slices of salami and cubes of cheese. Still only the three couples, we sampled a white, a rose, two reds and a red dessert wine. Lastly we went to the Gambino estate, the panoramic view was simply stunning.Pleasantly full and slightly stupified we relaxed in the back of the Ford instead worrying about the cracked windscreen!

Great trip that would have been tricky to organise without the tour

We booked this trip as we wanted a nice easy way to see Mount Etna and get some info from a specialist. We were really happy with the trip, our guide Guiseppi was amazing! Really informative and positive, he seemed really happy to be our guide and genuinely interested in the subject. We did a lovely trek and saw lots of variation in landscape. And it was all topped off with lots of wine and delicious food. Plus, the boot hire was great as we hadn't come prepared for a hike. Very comfy shoes! Would definitely recommend this tour.

Great adventure, cool trail, lot of interesting facts

We had a really good time on this excursion. Our guide Giovanni was very pleasant and knowledgeable and he shared lot of information about the mountain, environment, volcanic activity, plants, etc. You can really see that he enjoys what he does :) The trail was full of cool elements (craters, viewpoints, lava exit points, etc.). Lunch afterwards was also very nice and we drank a pretty tasty wine ;) In the end, Alcantra Gorges were wonderful :)) All in all, I highly recommend this classic tour.

Nice guide. Fluent in English. Knowledgeable of the subject matter.

Guide arrived to pick us up about 20 minutes late, but I learned that was GetYourGuides fault. Guide was friendly and engaging. Fluent in English. Was knowledgeable regarding a variety of topics relevant to the trip that day. Allowed the group of three couples independence to determine what each would like to do. Only recommendation would be to make stops at the homes destroyed by Etna and a view of Etna on the drive up. Otherwise, great trip.

A bit of fun if you've read the books or seen the TV series

Our second tour with Alessio from Sicily Grand Tours. Several stops on this tour taking in some of the filming locations for the TV series and, for us, a chance to see a little bit of cities/towns which we wouldn't otherwise have done ourselves. Stops in Modica, Scicli and Punta Secca with a chance to have lunch at Enzo's. Thoroughly enjoyable day.
