My wife Cathy and I went on the Tour of Sicily with Tradizione Tourismo, during the first week of September 2013. We started out in Palermo, and ended in Taormina, and I would recommend doing it this way, as Taormina is truly "The Cherry on Top". The hotel accommodations, the restaurants and the various day trips around Sicily were fantastic. I cannot say enough about how much we enjoyed this tour. The only misleading statement in their brochure is the reference to the "light" lunches. No such thing! The lunches were so plentiful (and so good) that we were still full at dinner time, and had to eat lite nearly every night.
Our tour guide Giuseppina was really special. She was very knowledgeable about the history of the country, the politics, the historic sites, the food, and just about anything else you wanted to ask her. She provided for of all our needs, acting as our guide, our driver, our translator, and even as our negotiator when necessary. It was obvious to us that everything she did for us and the others in our group was really from the heart. By the end of the week, we felt like she was a real friend.
Sicily is an amazingly beautiful country, and I would absolutely recommend Tour of Sicily with Tradizione Tourismo to anyone. This has been an unforgettable experience.
