Our tour guide Biagio was...

Lovely Tour, Great Guide
Anna_M, May 2023
This was a wonderful tour with our guide, Biagio. He was knowledgeable, kind and had a good sense of humor. I highly recommend this tour!
Fabulous introduction to Siracusa
Cecilia_B, Jan 2023
Biagio was fabulous. He was full of information and spoke excellent English. We were a mixed group of travelers in our fifties and early twenties, and Biagio kept all of us fully engaged. The transportation was clean, comfortable and convenient. We had a short visit to Siracusa, and this tour allowed us to maximize our limited time. We included the food and wine experience at the end and had a delightful experience at Jobi. We enjoyed local sparking, white and red wines along with a taste of several local specialties. It was a wonderful end to the tour and definitely worth the additional expense. Ask Biagio to sing for you for a real treat.
Paolo gave us a great time in Syracusa
James_P, May 2022
Paolo gave us a great time in Syracusa. He picked us up at our hotel in his car and first took us to the archeological park where there are Greek and Roman ruins. As we walked thru the park Paolo regaled us with history and lore. He was very knowledgeable. After the park he drove back to Ortigia, found a parking spot and then gave us a great walking tour of the island. With each street he would point out fabulous historical details about the buildings and cultures of the past. We walked all the way to the lower tip where the natural spring emerges and the castle was built. He then took us to a nice sidewalk cafe where he had arranged a great lunch. He left us to indulge in great Sicilian wine and food.
It has to be better
Dalia_M, Sep 2021
Our tour guide Biagio unfortunately was not good. He is a lovely very nice gentleman and I’m sorry to be providing this feedback but this tour was very demanding physically and he was not in the best shape for it. He went way too slow and we missed seeing key landmarks because of that. He didn’t give us much information, most of the time it was a quiet stroll and he had no answers for questions we asked. It may have been a language barrier or lack of knowledge. He did tell us a lot about the plants (which we were not interested in). Way too much money for the lack of education we felt by the end. The ristorante that was part of this tour was outstanding though.

A fantastic tour of Syracuse & Ortigia with a great guide
Scott_G, May 2019
Paulo gave us a great tour of Syracuse's Archeological Park and then Ortigia. He is very knowledgeable and personable so it was a pleasure for us to spend the morning with him. After his tour, we had a much better understanding of the history and cultural richness of Syracuse and Ortigia. To finish the tour, he dropped us off at a bistro in the market where he had arranged for a delicious lunch. We definitely recommend taking this tour with Paulo!
Our tour guide, Marco, seems to love...
Christine O, Nov 2017
Our tour guide, Marco, seems to love history and giving tours of his beautiful and historic city of Siracusa. It was a very informative tour, and he happily answered all of our many questions. We spent a lot of time in the Archaeological Park which was amazing and we opted to do the food and wine tasting at the end which we also enjoyed. I highly recommend this tour.
