What people are saying about Province of Syracuse

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the beautiful nature reserve. Our guide Frederico was excellent explaining about the unique habitat and the bird species that inhabit the area and why it is so important for them. The history of the coastline is also very interesting and our guide was able to show us things we wouldn't have seen otherwise. His expertise enhanced the visit enormously. A point to be aware of is how hot doing the walk during the summer can be, without much available shade, so a hat and plenty of drinking water is essential. There is an option to have a swim if you wish to do so whilst there. The excursion is good value for money and the pick-up, drop-off was easy and efficient.

It was a great tour, Frederico was motivated and nice and told us a lot about Etna, life around Etna and much more. The cave tour and the tasting at the end were also a highlight and we also bought many products at the end because everything tasted so delicious. Absolute recommendation from us! We were back in Siracusa at 4.30pm and a total of 7 people took the tour which was also very enjoyable!

The guide Frederico was very knowledgeable and provided various interesting facts about local vegetation and history of Pantalica. The hike was not complex or stressful, guide was patient while we took a swim in the local rivers

Beautiful walk in beautiful surroundings. Our guide was very informative, friendly and accommodating

A breathtaking excursion with an exceptional guide
