It was only my wife and I on the tour with Francesco, even though the van holds 9. We got off to a shaky start as we were emailed a start time of 8:30 but when I called at almost 9:00, because no one had shown up at the meet point,I was told it's an 9:10 start and that there was a miscommunication. Francesco quickly made up for this by giving us so much historical background and interesting information on the places we visited. His English is excellent too, so it was easy to understand him. The 3 areas we visited were each unique and from different ages even though they were relatively close to each other. The lunch with wine that was included was a nice surprise with delicious foods to choose from and dessert even. I would definitely reccomend the tour and Francesco but recommend that you confirm pick up time the day before or that morning.

The trip we booked as a trip for a small group but in the morning we realized that it will be our personal private tour what was even better than we expected.
Gioele, our driver and guide, was very very very knowledgeable, polite and friendly. He gave us a lot of information about Sicilian history, about all places we visited and made to us a great company.
We enjoyed also small lunch with the regional wine.
Everything was perfect and we really admire Gioele´s knowledge of history and also his fluent English.

Dario was a fantastic guide! We originally booked the tour as a small group and it ended up just being my husband and I with Dario. So we got a private tour! Dario really had an appreciation for the places we were visiting because he was local to the area. He gave us thorough explanations about the sites as well as an environmental perspective due to his background in environmental science. He was always happy to offer to take pictures for us and give us free time at certain points as well. The tour itself covered a lot of ground! We got a chance to see ruins, ocean and charming "old Sicily" in just a day. Was very nice to have lunch provided and brought as a picnic so we could take more time to see the sites! Customer service from the tour company itself was wonderful. Easy to communicate with them and quick response time.

Our guide Gioele, who liked to be called Joe was friendly and extremely knowledgeable. The day was well paced and arrangements for the day were made very clear to us. We saw parts of Syracuse/ortygia which we would never have seen if we had gone alone. The archeological park was worth a visit and the written information supplied was useful. The buildings of Noto are amazing. A tour not to be missed

Andrea from Sicily Day by Day arranged for my husband and I to have a private tour of Syracuse, Ortygia and Noto while we were staying in Taormina. We wanted to join a small group tour but all were booked so we had a private tour instead. Our driver Dario, picked us up promptly at 9 a.m. and off we went for the day. He was very delightful, knowledgable and professional. His english was very good and he took his time to answer all our questions. Highly recommend this company and our driver/guide Dario. We had a long day of touring Syracuse, Ortygia and Noto. All were very interesting and worth the trip from Taormina. This area is very rich in history and shouldn't be missed.

We joined this tour with 2 other tourists and our family of 5, making a total of 7 in a mini-van. Guide was Antonio, a very friendly and knowledgeable guide. As he was not a licensed guide for those attractions, he basically briefed us and provided walking maps when we enter the attractions. Although the journey was fairly long and covered 3 locations, we felt the small group made the tour a lot more personalized. Nevertheless, it was still a rush like other group tours, we were given an hour or so to roam freely at each destination. Antonio also gave us tips on popular eating places in Catania at the end of the tour. We much preferred this type of tour to those big 50-person tours we joined in Rome where the accompanying guide basically did nothing more than being a chaperone. Thumbs up!

This tour company is like going with your friend who knows everything about everything. The small group allows it to feel special, more intimate. Each city held something different. It was a rewarding day. Very accommodating on a food allergy we had which was helpful. Francesco is fantastic. We had some rain and he was prepared and allowed us to decide how we wanted to proceed.

The guide was an archaeologist and very knowledgeable about the history art and culture of both Noto and Syracusa.
Well worth travelling just to Catania and booking this day tour. If you are short of time this is a good option.
