Overview

Escape the metropolitan bustle of Palermo on an enriching full-day excursion to Agrigento, home to one of Sicily’s most captivating archeological sites. With a knowledgeable guide, delve into the ancient wonders of the Greek empire at the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Valley of the Temples, an enclave that boasts an impressive selection of Greek ruins. Marvel at the exquisite Temple of Concord, one of the Mediterranean’s best preserved structures, and enrich your historical knowledge at the Archeological Museum of Agrigento.
  • Full-day trip to Agrigento from Palermo with an expert tour leader
  • See the archaeological area of Agrigento, which was once a major Greek metropolis
  • Learn about the site’s past at the Archaeological Museum of Agrigento
  • View the ancient ruins at the UNESCO-listed Valley of the Temples
  • Admire the exquisite Temple of Concord, one of the Mediterranean’s best preserved ancient structures
Greet your courteous guide at a central Palermo location and climb aboard a comfortable, air-conditioned minivan destined for Agrigento, an ancient city on Sicily’s south coast. 

Delve into the rich historical heritage of the region as you listening to commentary that illuminates the heyday of ancient Greek city, Akragas, along the journey. 

On arrival, head straight inside the Archaeological Museum of Agrigento to browse exhibits showcasing valuable and insightful artefacts from ancient eras. Explore the compelling collection independently, marvelling at pottery and statues, before reconvening with your guide at a pre-arranged time. 

Next, revitalize with a traditional Italian lunch (own expense), and then head to the UNESCO-listed Valley of the Temples to marvel at perfectly preserved monuments that herald the existence of an ancient city. Appreciate the immaculately restored Temple of Concord, a structure that dates back to the 5th century, and then return to your vehicle for the relaxing drive back to Palermo, where the tour concludes.

Perfect tour

Although it rained for part of the tour, unusual for this part of Sicily the tour was excellent. Well organised and all guided by Claudio who made it interesting and enjoyable.

Wonderful day in Agrigento. We were met by our driver Josephine in Palermo and traveled to Agrigento to see the Temples and the Museum, Our driver was excellent (knowledgeable and pleasant). We were a small group as it was a Sunday so we went by minivan. Would absolutely recommend this tour to anyone. Must see destination. Comfortable ride with great driver, Beautiful destination. Can't say enough.

Amazing Greek temples and history. Our driver was nice but not really a tour guide. And the museum was closed when we got there.

The Valley of Temples definitely...

The Valley of Temples definitely worth visiting, but if we'd have to choose again, we'd choose a different tour. The reasons why we do not recommend this tour are the following: - the time we had to visit the Valley of Temples was way too short only 1.5 h - we were always on a rush, didn't have time to explore the monuments as we wanted because the local guide was always calling us to move to the next monument - it was really frustrating. - spent most of the time on the road see the itinerary below - had to pay extra for the entry fees 13.5 eur for the MuseumValley of Temples - tour price - over 140 Overall, the price of the tour was way too high for the services provided. We would suggest at least to allow more time for exploring the Valley of Temples, to improve a bit the overall experience. Want to mention that, despite the above shortcomings, we appreciated the driver's attitude - she was really nice and willing to help us. The itinerary: We left Palermo at 8:30 and got back around 17:45 - out of the total time of 9 hours, about 5 h were spent on the road, 1.5 h for lunch, 1 h at the Museum and only 1.5-1.75 h at the Valley of the Temples.

My husband and I signed up to this tour just three days beforehand and were pleased they still had availability. We travelled with another 6 passengers to Agrigento in a small mini-van which was a pleasant journey and our guide shared lots of history and stories with us as we travelled. We spent 60 minutes in the museum before heading to lunch and then another 90 minutes at the Valley of the Temples. Whilst we thought the trip was a fantastic experience you MUST see the Valley of the Temples! I do think the tour is over-priced and if we had more time to research, we would possibly go with another provider. Over 100pp is significant considering you have to pay for your own entry fees, travel to/from the meeting point in Palermo and lunch/drinks during the day - I was very surprised that the price didn't include a bottle of water or hotel pick-up/drop-off. The guide also seemed a little rushed at times, but this could just be because they know how difficult traffic can be and wanted to get back on the road in good time. Overall, the Valley of the Temples is unmissable but maybe the provider should review their prices.

Good tour with a site guide. Lunch took a bit long so felt our time viewing the temples was a bit rushed.

This tour was an overpriced means of transport from Palermo to Agrigento. We still had to pay entrance to the museum and temple area this was stated at time of booking so basically all the money went to transport and local guide. We were given an hour in the museum then taken to nearby restaurant to buy lunch. Diners took 90 minutes for lunch which is excessive and the few of us who only wanted a coffee had nothing else to do but wait as there is nothing else around. I believe guests should have been given the option to spend more time in the museum if they didn't want a long lunch. With a little research I think it would be possible to take this trip for half the price. Very disappointing.

Great day trip to see the temples...

Great day trip to see the temples, wonderful guides. Tour is quite pricey given lunch and entrance fees not included. Would have been better to have been given an hour of free time at the temples as the guided tour was quite rushed and not enough time to fully appreciate and take photos.
