Valeria DiMauro is a 5-star gem. What a lovely stroll we had through Ortigia, thanks to her generous heart, seeing the streets, vistas, architecture through her eyes.... savoring the food and wine was an extra bonus. We are moved to return to Siracusa thanks to Valeria great charm.
One of the best tours I have ever taken! Valeria was an amazing guide full of knowledge of the food, life, and history of Siracusa.
This was the best of the four tours we booked while traveling through Sicily and Malta. If you're lucky enough to get Elisa as your guide, you're in for a real treat. She was extremely knowledgeable, speaks 5 languages beautifully and has a fantastic sense of humor. Can't recommend this one enough. x
This is our third visit to Ortigia but we have never had a guide before so decided to try this tour. We arrived at the designated meeting point a little early and, as the time approached, we're a little concerned as there were no other tourist around who looked as if they were waiting too. We expected to be in a group of 8 or 10 but no, our guide arrived the lovely, helpful Elisa and we discovered it was just we two and her.
Wow! A private escorted tour!!
A more friendly, educated and informative guide we could not have wished for.
The time flew by as we learned about the history and traditions of the various buildings and areas along with Sickly as a whole.
The three stops were fantastic with great quantities of good food and wine in varied, friendly local establishments.
When you take in to account the value of the food and wine provided the services of the guide are virtually free!
I cannot recommend this tour strongly enough and, if you have the chance to request Elisa as your guide I would suggest that you do.
We really enjoyed this trip. I informed Viator prior to departure that my friend had a wheat intolerance and they kindly suggested that we change our booking to an evening tour at no extra cost so they could cater better for my friend. An auspicious start and the tour fully met our expectations. Our guide was very informative and took us places we hadn't been before and told us all sorts of things that only a local would know. The food and wine were delicious and the staff at the various eateries friendly and welcoming. This is a wonderful way to get to know a city and its culture.
