A fun experience!

We enjoyed going on this tour. Rosario (Saro) was a terrific guide showing us landmarks of Syracusa and explaining the culture of each. We were treated to fabulous food and wine along the way at some beautiful restaurants. You don't do much walking as the restaurants and landmarks are nearby. It took about 31/2 to 4 hours . A beautiful and memorable way to spend an evening. Highly recommend!

This was a great introduction to Syracuse on our first night there. Our guide, Elisa, was very friendly and made sure we were well catered for the whole evening. The second bar we went to became a regular spot for us over the week! As well as showing us around the city, Elisa was able to recommend places for us to see and eat during our stay. Very helpful indeed.

Our guide for this tour was pleasant, and tried to be informative, but, by his own admission, he was filling in at the last minute for the scheduled guide. The fish platter and white wine tasting site was excellent, but so noisy we had difficulty hearing the guide. The meat tasting with red wine site was quieter, but the manager was unpleasant he would not even set a place for the guide. The site for dessert served the most mediocre cannola we have had on our trip. Plus, the guide smoked on this food tour. LACKLUSTER experience.

TOUR OPERATOR COMMENT: Thank you so much for your review. We appreciate when guests find time to write a review, even when it is a negative one. Regarding your complaints, we do understand the guide did smoke one cigarette while on tour and we have asked him not to do so in the future. We strive to chose venues on side streets to minimize noise so we apologize if you had difficulty hearing your guide. We are sorry you didn't enjoy our food and wine tour as you wanted and we will take all your comments into consideration to improve our tour for future guests.

Based on the website description I was looking forward to this tour as part of a week-long visit to Sicily. And it did not disappoint! Our guide, Valeria, was a true local.....saying hello to police and neighborhood store owners along the way. She took us through several streets and alleys, pointing out the interesting historical significance of buildings and areas she has a background in architecture too. The food/wine stops were interesting in that they provided a sampling of things we probably wouldn't have experienced on our own. Just enough food, wine, walking and talking.....an enjoyable way to spend a relaxing evening in Ortigia.

Tour was fun and we enjoyed the company of the other people on our tour it was a small group tour and there were 8 of us. Our guide Anna Maria was very lovely and shared a lot about Sircusa, but she didn't tie what we were eating to Siracusa at all. It would have been nice to know why the particular restaurants were chosen and why the foods we sampled were chosen. That said, the proprietors of the places we went were great and very accommodating there were several people with food restrictions. And the food - delicious!

Fun tour with a nice sampling of wine from the region and a taste of the food. Our tour guide was friendly and enjoyable to be around. However, I felt a little underwhelmed by the whole experience might have been because of the heat. This is what I remember.

This was the highlight of my holiday! My husband and I booked this trip a long time in advance as we were excited to try the local food and wine when we arrived in Siracusa - and it did not disappoint. Our guide was knowledgeable and fun - creating a great atmosphere amongst the group and making us feel very welcome. We had lovely fish and white wine at the first venue, followed by a huge amount of cheese/meats with red wine at the second. Our final stop was at a little cafe for dessert and sweet wines. Between each stop, our guide showed us the wonderful sites of Ortigia and this encouraged us to come back to the island another 3 times during our trip - as it is so spectacular. We could not recommend an activity more!
