Our exploration of the Valley of the Temples was so much better by starting off with a tour led by Michele Gallo. He combined history, culture, philosophy, and architecture in a captivating way. After our two hour tour was over we were more than ready to go off and explore other areas, truly understanding what we were seeing. Guide books
are fine, but this was truly memorable.

We booked a private tour of Valley of the Temples with Michele Gallo for our group of 14 family members, ages 17-57. I found his name in the Rick Steves Sicily guide book. He was very helpful from the very beginning. I had purchased tickets online from the COOP Culture but did not receive them in my email. Michele had to speak with the ticket office several times to get that straightened out. The tour was very informative and presented in an interesting and easy to understand way. A number of family members commented that they were glad that we had Michele to guide us through the site. Worth the investment!

Highly recommend hiring Michele Gallo for a tour of the museum and the Valley of the Temples. Fantastic experience. We learned so much that enriched our experience at the Valley. Mr. Gallo is very good at sharing his wealth of fascinating information and history of the site.

The tour guide never showed up. We went to agrigento for one day and had to walk through the ruins alone without a guide. Called number and eventually got someone who claimed the tour guide was in a wreck and in a coma. Seems far fetched but in Sicily the truth is moldable. Horrible job on TripAdvisor not to vet the vendors. Will never use this platform for tours again!

We are very sorry that the guide couldn’t be on time for the tour. She was involved in a car accident. It happens in Sicily as anywhere else in the world. We tried to call you and your number was unreachable and it was not possible to leave a message. When we finally managed to reach you through WhatsApp we explained that the guide had to do some medical checks and immediately fully refunded you. We are really sorry that you missed the opportunity the enjoy this tour like all the other happy travelers who have posted their reviews here

We were lucky enough to have Michele Gallo as our guide for two hours today as we toured the Valley of the Temples. When I found his name in the Rick Steve’s Sicily book, I immediately felt confident that he would be a great guide. He has a wealth of knowledge that he knows how to convey in an understandable way, using photos from a book as visual aids when necessary. His pacing was perfect, he knew shady spots to rest, and he was able to get us to the front of the line to get tickets, which was an added bonus! Going with a private tour is worth the nominal extra cost, as we were able to have individual questions answered, without feeling that we were imposing ourselves on other members in a group. Don’t even hesitate…..book Michele, and secure the booking in advance!

We found Michele Gallo through the Rick Steve's Sicily book and we were delighted with all of his knowledge and experience. Michele then honored us by having lunch with us where we learned more about him and this beautiful area of Sicily. After we toured the temples, Michele took us to the Turkish Steps and even endured the very windy walk we had to take to get to the steps. We had a great day and this was one of the favorite parts of our trip.

We couldn’t recommend this tour highly enough! Michele is incredibly knowledgeable and interesting. His mastery of the English language is better than many Americans. His tour is the best way to get the most out of this very interesting Sicily experience in the museum and walk through the valley. We was a joy to spend the morning with, we appreciated every moment.
Mille Grazie Michele!

Daytime (9am) private tour of the valley of the temples

Excellent touted guide of the valley of the temples by Michele. Hugely knowledgeable (about everything!), we got so much more out of the experience with Michele. The site is quite large, with fairly limited information, so I would thoroughly recommend a guide to get the most out of it. The site also contains a folly, so you don’t want to spend all day examining a folly when there exists remains of temples over 2400 years old just around the corner. We got to the site car park at 9am, when the site was very quiet, and we’re finished by 11:30am.

Would throughly recommend Michele and his tour.

Arrived in the nice Agrigento with the first intent of paying a visit to the "Valle dei Templi", our guest recommended to book a guided tour with this operator. Luckily, the next available was the one starting at 6.30PM. The guy which assisted our group was an archeologist, absolutely informed about everything happened in the different ages in the whole Sicily. At the same time, he knew when it was the time to break the "lesson" with some small jokes. I don't know if it has been calculated, but we reached the "Tempio della Concordia", right in the moment of the sunset, having the opportunity to take amazing pictures. Every single temple is wonderful, with a fantastic story behind and having the possibility of seeing each of them first with the soft light before the sunset and than illuminated by the moonlight, I consider this as the best time I had during my holydays in the amazing Sicily.
