Delve into ancient Roman and Greek history with a visit to both Neapolis Archaeological Park and Ortygia Island in Sicily's Syracuse.

Marvel at age-old quarries and a Roman amphitheater where gladiators fought each other to the death. Afterward, head over to Ortygia Island―a small island that serves as Syracuse's historic center―and nearby Noto, a stunning town filled with exquisite, photo-worthy Baroque architecture.

We saw as much as possible and all that was needed. The driver/guide was knowledgable and we feel that we had a good visit. With three of us in the front seat, it was a bit crowded.

Our tour guide was a lovely friendly polite guide. He pointed out the papyrus plant found in the gorgeous historical centre of Syracuse, Ortigia, Papyrus is a material similar to thick paper that was used in ancient times as a writing surface. He incorporated some cultural experiences into the tour, sharing the language of local Sicilian dialect. He was patient, understanding, would gladly take some more tours!

Individual pick-up from the Hotel was efficient but took time which seems to cut into the days touring. Especially since two guests were located way outside the core of the city. Good for the tour company to flex to these customers but it was a little drain on the rest of us who had to go for the ride. At least on the way back they were the last dropped off after those of us in the center of the city were dropped off. Once the tour started it is great. Out tour guide spoke English with an accent but was easily understandable and the sites and explanations we saw and heard were well worth the time and cost of the trip. I would recommend this to all who want to see the historical part of Sicily.

Highly recommend Etna tribe they are organised, on time and offer assistance all day. Their guides are first class and managed to fill in the historical gaps and make certain that we were comfortable and understood what was special about the area. Well done Etna Tribe a thoroughly enjoyable day. This day catered for ages in our group 18 to 54. While lunch is not covered, we were placed close to enjoyable food at very reasonable prices. The price listed for the day is very reasonable after consideration is given to driving parking, entrance fees and the information provided during the 8 hours.

Very helpful to be driven to these cities as traffic and drivers in Catania are awful. Risk your life. The guide however gave very little information on the sites, basically left on your own to figure out. The cities are beautiful and worth visiting.
