We went on this tour as part of our honeymoon and were incredibly glad and grateful that we did. It was one of the top highlights of our 3 week trip. Worth every penny, not a single regret. :

We had to travel from Palermo to Taormina and decided this was preferable over renting a car and dealing with all of the details. Our driver with a small minivan met us at our hotel in Palermo and we spent the day sightseeing in Agrigento and Villa Romana del Casale before arriving in Taormina. It was relaxing, we were able to set our own schedule and could stop where ever we wished for coffee, lunch, restroom breaks, even a bit of shopping. Very pleasant day. Thank you

Great driver friendly, but not intrusive. He allowed plenty of time at Agrigento and Villa Romana, and recommended an excellent spot for lunch.

Our guide Josefina was gracious and helpful from start to finish. She recommended a lovely place for lunch and we felt in safe and capable hands for the whole day. Our Italian was minimal but Josefina's English was very good, and she gave us extra information about the sites we visited.

Mind you! this is a long drive and a hardcore tour! not for the faint hearted! its good if you got places on the tick list then this is great as you got two out of the way then! I left at 8.30 and arrived at 5. They are quite long walks but not too complicated so wear good shoes!
