5 star rating: Highly Recommended May 2018

The visit to Segeste and Erice was great. In contrast, the visit to the salt pans was interesting, but not worth the drive to the place. Our tour leader was Michael and he provided us with an excellent background of the history of the places we visited.

The Salt Pans aren't really worth the effort to see but Segesta and Erice were fantastic. Michael was our driver/guide and he was very professional and knowledgeable. It was a small group and we quickly became friends. It's a nice way to spend the day outside the madness that can be Palermo.

I enjoyed this trip mid October 2017 very much. We were a small group in a van rather than a large group in a bus. This made the trip much more enjoyable. Michael, our tour guide, was knowledgeable, courteous and professional. He explained everything we needed to know about Segesta, the salt pans at Trapani ,and Erice in order to thoroughly enjoy the experience. His command of Italian, Spanish, and English is excellent. He also ensured that we could take some great photos by briefly stopping. I highly recommend this trip....especially with Michael.

Michael was very knowledgeable and friendly, and gave us tips before leaving us off in the various towns. We especially enjoyed Erice and its arancini. Try the one just after the gate on the left, unfortunately, they were out of Nutella ones but the ragù and also the spinach and mozzarella were very tasty!

An excellent excursion with a great guide. It could not be better. Our guide Michael was very friendly, knowledgeable and personable and took us to each of the sites. Again, I was very impressed and would do it again without a second thought.

If you are also going to do the Agrigento tour then I suggest you do this tour first.

Driver on time to pick us up. Very pleasant and helpful. Good driver. Van comfortable. Small group.
Surprised that we had to pay for our own entrances and that there was no guide. We paid about 50 each which was expensive. In other countries we have had guides with us as well as a driver!
Reluctant to purchase another trip because of lack of a guide.

This is essentially a self-guided tour. You are provided with transportation and a brief explanation of what you should do and see. The driver was excellent - very courteous, knowledgeable, and professional. If you have already been to Agrigento, you really don't need to see Segesta, unless you are an avid follower of Greek ruins. The salt plans of Trapani are absolutely amazing. I have never seen anything like it before - looks like snow. Erice is a quaint, amazing little town. The views mountains and the sea are stunning - some of the best vistas I have ever viewed. Overall, it was a very enjoyable day.
