Wonderful guide Federico made our day truly special. Great amount in each location so never felt rushed. There were 3 of us from one family and all agreed it was money well spent. Highlight was Segesta…..stunning.

Segesta was amazing, and Erica was a beautiful old village with incredible views. I wasn’t too fussed on the salt pans (waste of time for me. I would have preferred to spend more time exploring Erice.

Excellent experience, Marco accompanied us with professionalism and sympathy. Absolutely recommended. Manuela and Samuele

Very nice tour, in just one day we thoroughly visited Segesta, Erice and the salt pans of Trapani.

Very nice guide. Personalized visit because few participants. I recommend
