Giuseppe was fantastic! We felt so lucky to have him walk us through the sites and history of Syracuse's archeological park, as well as, Ortygia. He knows SO much about the history and answered all of the questions we peppered him with. We highly recommend taking this tour with him!!!

Wonderful tour!

Thank you very much for a great time! Anna brilliantly conducted an excursion: she told interesting facts from the history of the city, its inhabitants, local legends, the presentation of the material is very easy for perception! A nice bonus was moving by car from Neapolis to Ortigia, getting ready to go on foot. The time of the excursion flew by unnoticed, we received great pleasure from communication! Thank you, Anna, you are the best!

A great ride with a great guide

The tour met our expectations perfectly: the tour of Syracuse and the archaeological site was complete and more generally we learned a lot about Sicily in general. Bravo to our guide Ambra who, in addition to being very friendly and considerate with children, knows perfectly how to share his passion for the island and the city. We had a great time.
