I can only recommend this tour! Having a good mixture of man-made and natural beauty to marvel at was great and Francesco the driver was a gem! The audioguide unfortunately didn't work but I can't complain since I ended up having a private tour in the end. I really enjoyed seeing Marzamemi and this was the only tour I found that included a seaside town stop.
