What people are saying about Marsala

Alessio is an excellent tour guide… full of interesting information and the history of salt collection in the Trapani/Marsala area. We spent a great deal of time observing the salt pans and learning so much about how the salt collection has changed over time. He took us to an excellent winery where we tasted numerous exceptional wines. We never felt rushed and enjoyed the winery visit thoroughly! The boat tour was also very enjoyable and we went to a lovely little shop to get a few salt souvenirs. Give Alessio your tour business… you won’t be disappointed!!

Very nice wine tasting. We were all alone and everything was explained to us in detail. The only downside is the plastic cups. Wine should only be drunk from glasses. Otherwise TOP - have been well entertained. Gladly again

The owners went out of their way to accommodate us because we were the only English speaking ones there. They were so kind. The tour, wine tasting and lunch was excellent!

Fantastic tour. The visit to the cellar was the best moment. Alessio is a fantastic guide. Beautiful experience

Great experience, super professional and fun guide, great day out!
