After we get out of the car, we have a small stream to go on foot, and we are there! We have a hot spring, three waterfalls, a hot water place hidden in a cave, and a river flowing along the canyon to cool down. You can take a mud bath using a wedge from the cave walls, you can bask in the water or stand under a waterfall for a natural massage, the choice is yours! The place is absolutely amazing and undoubtedly worth a visit. Without a doubt, its charm adds to its wildness and difficult access for tourists!

I booked this tour and a half day tour spur of the moment and so glad I did. This was a great day trip from Palermo. The drivers let us know important things/what to do at each stop. I didn’t know much about any of the stops when booking, especially Erice. Erice turned out to be one of my favorite stops from both of the tours I did. Definitely recommend!

great trip and the guys were great,We had a great day and it was what we wanted as we were left alone to enjoy the sites without any commentry or visits to shopping experiences.We would highly reccomend as we got to visit three places that are hard to access by public transport

Lovely tour with small group of people. Plenty of time to exprore sites on your own, which was my preference sice I dont drive. Adriano (our driver) was great!

Perfect day trip. The bus was clean and comfortable. The guide very friendly and knowledgeable.

Melissa was very interesting, engaging, informative, friendly, considerate.
