What people are saying about Sortino, Italy

Everything was great. Pick up from hotel exactly as promised, very interesting and not too easy hiking at Pantalica. Our guide Andrea was very knowledgeable about the flora and history of Pantalica region. He was also able to adjust the tour a bit according to wishes and capabilities of the participants. Something which is quite rare and extremely valuable. I would certainly recommend this tour to anybody who is interested in hiking, nature and history of Sicily.

We had a lovely walk in spring Sicily and having had no hire car, we never would have got there without Andrea. He pointed out lots of interesting things and we had a very enjoyable time.
