I had business every morning in Catania and, therefore, had to see what I could in the afternoon. on three days, my driver met me at 13.00 at my place of business, took me to Taormina, Siracusa and Piazza Armerina. He drove me to the different sites then delivered me home by 17.00.

The drivers were interesting men who told me a lot about life in Sicily - education, jobs and the industries. Each had his own story - his family, aspirations, travels.

Best of Sicily Tours captured my needs exactly. I thoroughly enjoyed myself and am very happy with the service I received.

A school class from Finland with 14 eighteen year old students had a very interesting day on their trip to Etna. We hired a bus with an excellent guide; Vincenzo. He told us a lot about the history and culture of Sicily during the day. All though we where not able to reach the place where the activity of the volcano was, it made an unforgettable impression on us. After the visit on Etna the Vincenzo took us to a beautiful farm on the north side of the mountain, were we had a delicious lunch. The students just loved the place. We all agreed that the day had been very “siisti”.

Sicily, not thought of as the "best" part if italy ? Been all over the world and all over italy. Vincenzo will change your perception. Vincenzo and his company take care of everything and become part of the family. TourofSicily.com will make your trip the most enjoyable effortless vacation you can imagine. Could not have had a better time. A little adventure, a lot of great food and wine and quite a history lesson, but most of all wonderful people. Need a week to do it justice. Two weeks would be better and allow for some down time. Vincenzo will keep you moving.

My wife and I (late 70s) went on Monday (19 March) on the Best of Sicily trip “Erice, Salt Flats, Olive Oil Farm, Segesta & Winery”. We were the only two clients, and Josephine was there to meet us exactly on time and with a very comfortable Fiat van. Lots of headroom; easy to get in and out; comfortable seats; good views.
Josephine is a welcoming guide who clearly loves her job. She speaks good English, is very knowledgeable and cares a lot about her guests. She is also an excellent driver.
The tour itself is well planned and seemed just right for us. We were lucky that there were very few tourists in Erice, and the weather was warm and clear, so we saw everything at its best.
The visits to the Olive Oil Farm was fascinating and the “light lunch” was plentiful and delicious. Wonderful chance to sample different types and grades of olive oil. It makes you curse the 100ml limit on liquids when flying!
Then came Segesta with a long but easy climb up to the temple, which is in fine condition and commands wonderful views.
Finally the winery – what a joy! Small, family-run winery producing predominantly reds, some of which are on sale in specialist merchants in the UK, USA, Canada, Russia and many other countries. Several well-deserved awards and reviews. It was so nice to sit down with the wine maker and his niece – just two of the family members involved – and discuss and sample the wines.
Then the drive back to Palermo, where Josephine went out of her way to deliver us very close to where we are staying – a kind gesture that rounded off the day beautifully.
We would be very hard pushed to think of any aspect of the tour we did not like. If you have one like ours it will be a trip you will always remember. Thank you Josephine – you are a great ambassador for your company.
