What people are saying about Syracuse

The tour was a great experience. There was a lot to see in a short amount of time and we had plenty of photo stops with plenty of time to take our pictures. Wouldn't have been manageable in this form either on foot or otherwise. Something could be improved on the audio guide, it "got stuck". But otherwise it was a nice experience that we didn't know in this form.

A very nice little visit with Daniel who showed us around the old town of Syracuse. We really appreciated the tour, the little secrets of the city that he shared with us and his good humor. Thank you Daniel!
