It was super nice! Even though we were a mixed group, the guild made sure she spoke in both German and English, such that everybody was able to enjoy the experience and understand the explanations about various objects from the road. We even went to the Sorgenti su Gologone afterwards, which wasn't part of the trip, but the guid went out of her way to take us there to enjoy some nice spring water

We did this excursion in the summer and despite the heat the accuracy of our guide to take us for most of the route in shady areas made the difference. Melina was a careful and precise guide. Tiscali is an enchanted place that I recommend everyone to visit once in a lifetime ...
