Our guide, Niccola, gave us a great overview of the history of Sicily as a background to understand the significance of the sites we visited. As we traveled to each site, he provided more details to understand how it fit into the Sicilian history and culture. He offered many comments about life in Sicily today woven into the historical descriptions of the areas we visited. The only negative of the day was the weather-as we drove up the hillside to Erice, we entered the clouds, which obscured our view from the top.

This was a beautiful boat trip. seeing 3 different islands with plenty of time and things to explore as well as drinks available on the boat and food. Also so easy to get to the ticket office from anywhere in Trapani and just make sure you pay the tax at the ticket off before you get on boat.

Emanuele, our guide, is the most nice man ever. He told us with passion about the whole Sicily. If we weren't on a diet, we would eat cake with him after trip, cause it was his birthday;-)

I was able to travel to areas that would have been difficult to travel alone with great ease!!

Nice trip with some interesting stops. Amazing Greek site.
