“Outstanding Tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 3, 2011

Agrigento, and in particular the Valley of Temples is a magnificent site. There are many well preserved attractions that are 2000 years old. Giovanna Lombardo led our family of two adults and two boys, ages 11 and 12, on a four hour tour of the "valley" (really a hill). She was absolutely fantastic. She speaks English very well and is able to pass on a vast amount of knowledge easily to all generations. Giovanna is friendly, energetic, and has a good sense of humor too. She also recommended visiting the Kolymbetra gardens which was a nice nature walk and complimented the archeological site very well.

Bring comfortable shoes for walking and prepare to be outdoors.

Thank you Giovanna for a wonderful day!

“Fantastic tour - don't miss this one”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2011

We toured the Valley of the Temples with Giovanna and had a fantastic time. We are a family of 5 with 3 children ages 6, 11 and 13. Giovanna did a great job of keeping both the children and the adults interested. This is one of the best historical sights we have seen and a great guide is highly recommended. Her knowledge of the area and the history was very complete and her English was impeccable.

“Giovanna Lombardo wsas the greatest guide we have had.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 4, 2010

Giovanna Lombardo did a fabulous job explaining the temples of Agrigento for our group. She set just the right pace…moved us along, but always had time for questions and further explanation if we wanted it. We had visited other ruins prior to Agrigento and she knew all the answers about those places also. She was prompt and gave us more time than we paid her for. She really made the Greek, Roman and present Sicilian life come alive for us. Wonderful guide! One of the best I’ve ever had!

“Excellent, thorough, enjoyable guided tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 2, 2009

Giovanna Lombardo, Guide of Aggrigento, is a very skilled and knowledgeable guide. We spent four hours with her in the Valley of the Temples and the Archaeological Museum. Her grasp of the history, culture, and art of the area is amazing, as is her ability to present a very informative and memorable tour.
