Phenomenal! Alessandro went above and beyond in his tour of Ortigia/ Syracuse. Alessandro’s perfectly planned trip coupled with his in depth knowledge not only had my whole group engrossed in his tour but also feel as though we were living in the bygone era of the 15th century! We particularly loved his local knowledge and advice when it came to touring the Ortigia food market, we have never tasted such amazing ricotta and cherries. Thank you Alessandro we couldn’t recommend you more!

We chose to stay in Noto for our seven days stay. No packing/unpacking. We did day trips to Syracusa, Ragusa, Taormina and other smaller towns. What made our vacation special was our guide Alessandro, his depth of knowledge of the area and the history of the many different people that lived in that part of Sicily. Layers upon layers of history, cultures, and buildings dating back to the 1st. century his delivery was not academic or formal. Storytelling at its best a perfect raconteur with a witty a sense of humor. Our travels could not have been successful without Giuseppe our driver again a unique individual, simpatico and joyful. The kindness and generosity of these two men made our stay memorable in more than one way.

Five Stars. ***** If Michelin stars were awarded to tour companies, they’d have THREE !! No joking. This company doesn’t have the typical guides, they have docents. Very well informed and educated docents with a breadth and depth of knowledge you don’t commonly find. They are very accommodating to their guests and willing to tailor the tour to your interests and needs. I’ve done many private full day tours in Europe and these people stand above the rest!

My husband and I did the half-day tour in Siracusa with Lucia. Lucia was such a great guide, and you can tell she is passionate about her hometown of Ortigia. We toured the historic sites - the Neapolis Archaelogical Park, etc. - but we also did so much more than that. Lucia asked us if we would be interested in walking through the market, and when we said yes, she not only walked us through but also explained different Sicilian foods and introduced us to friends of hers in the market. She even took us to a little shop where we learned how papyrus paper is made, and she showed us a natural river running underneath a restaurant. We learned so much from Lucia, and obviously, she took the extra step of teaching us about different things that we were interested in and did not limit our tour to the history of Siracusa.

I would highly recommend Uncovered Sicily, and specifically Enrica. She really took the time to make sure this was a great experience for my husband and I and catered to our requests. We wanted to get a feel for the food culture/markets, learn a bit of history, and see some of the neighborhoods along the way. She did an incredible job and we would book time with her again if the opportunity arose.
