We loved the history of Sicily!

  • by traveler: Natalie F.

We booked this tour because we’ve always wanted to visit Sicily as a family. It was everything we had imagined and more! We visited the most picturesque villages and felt like locals during the tour. The hotels, the wine, and the food were excellent. The sites we visited were amazing (we loved the valley of the Temples) and our guides were true professionals! It was a magical trip for our family, thank you!

9 perfect days in Sicily!

  • by traveler: Taylor N.

We have never used a travel agency and it was our first organized trip abroad, so we were skeptical. But, everything was perfect from the start to the end of the tour. The staff helped us organize our trip and customized it to fit our needs. There are many interesting tours and fun activities in this tour, but they are optional so you can skip them! The staff is always there for you and makes everything easy and fun. Highly recommended!
