Great day
We had a very good day! Most wonderful mosaics you shall ever come across anywhere in your life! Valley of the temples awe-inspiring! I can not fault the company. Pick up at our hotel was right on time as arranged. Travelled alongside 5 other tourists in comfortable minibus. Antonio is a passionate tour guide and very knowledgeable, a truly great personality! Lunch was amazing! No need to buy extra food as more than enough.

Good quality
Sep 2020
We used Sicily Day by Day for airport transportation and the Agrigento / Piazza Armerina tour. Excellent communication by email to get price quotes and make reservations. Clean, comfortable vehicles and good drivers. We would use them again if we return to the area.

Wonderful day with knowledgeable guide
The day was well paced, with 1.5 hrs seeing the mosaics, 1 hr for lunch at a cute deli & wine shop, and 1.5 hrs in the Valley of the Temples. Gioele was an AMAZING guide and driver, he gave us a detailed history of Sicily and both attractions, gave us maps and told us what to look out for. He also answered all of our other questions about Sicily. We learned so much and really enjoyed our day with him.

Enjoyed these type of small group tours with less than 10
This was our second tour with the same agency. Giole was the guide assigned to a small group of 7. Again, similar to our first tour, he was not a licensed guide for the attractions and hence he did a briefing and provided walking maps with major attractions at each destination. The highlight of the tour would be the Valley of the Temples. It was cold and drizzling but we were awed by the ruins of the temples unearthed along the walking path. Another long distance drive but with a little more time for free roam as there were only two locations to cover. Food in a boutique cafe cum souvenir/wine shop was great and we ended up buying many local chocolates, jams and wines. Again it’s one of those genuine small group tours that we really like.

A great day in a small group
Nov 2019
We chose a small group tour and had a blast with our driver for the day, Carlos. He gave us great insight into the region as we traveled to the sites. The roman house was nice but was under some construction/repair which prevented some exploration outside. The inside was amazing. Lunch was a selection of tapas and some great wine. The valley of the temples was amazing and easy to navigate. Definitely worth the time spent.

Amazing place to visit
Aug 2019 • Couples
The tourism agency is very attentive and supportive. Everything was scheduled by email. At the day we were taken at the scheduled time to start the trip from Catania. During the trip the guide Carlos explained some of the history around the place. The visit on Agrigento was unforgettable. Amazing grek temples in the valley of the temples!
Wonderful tour to make!
Lunch in Piaza Amerina with good Sicilian food.

Villa Romana del Casale was an amazing surprise and the temples were very interesting as well. Our Guide was very knowledgeable and helpful. Had a wonderful lunch in a small family run café and shop that served beautiful local food and wine.

Got lucky with a private tour and an amazing guide
We were very lucky on this tour as on the day there were only of the 2 of us so it ended up being a private tour. We had an amazing tour guide - Antonio as well!!! He was super informative and helped to give lots of information prior to reaching each destination. We had a fantastic lunch at Pizza Armerina in the cute little shop and they very super friendly!!! All in all a fantastic day out and the sights were defo must see in Sicily!!!

Best Experience in Sicily!
I went for a day trip from Catania with Carlos. He is an amazing driver, he made my experience thousand times better!! He tried to communicate and explain everything to us in an easy and funny way. I really suggest this activity to anyone who wants to know more about the ancient and complex history of Sicily 👍
