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!
