Walking Tour in Sicily and the Aeolian Islands

Feedback from previous guests
|Having just recently returned from your 'La Dolce Vita' walking tour of Sicily with my wife and another couple, I would like to thank you for the most amazing experience. The many walks we did where we experienced breathtaking scenery including mountainous terrain, forests, coastal walks and Mount Etna which was fantastic. The hotels we stayed at were well chosen as they were all different and very comfortable and ideally located. The food we enjoyed at various restaurants was excellent. A feature of your tours that we find to our liking is that you spend three or four nights in each town and you are not packing and unpacking all the time. Our guide Gilles was fantastic, nothing was too much trouble he went out of his way at all times to ensure we were comfortable safe and enjoying ourselves and his personality and humour was enjoyed by all. The combination of all the above and the wonderful couple from interstate that joined us made for a truly unforgettable holiday. This was our second walkabout tour and definitely not our last. Many thanks.

|As only 4 of us, thank you for going ahead with the tour. It was absolutely FANTASTIC. Sicily has so much to offer we would really love to go back. Not all the "strenuous?" walking for this elderly tourist though, but thanks to the enthusiasm, encouragement & help form Papa Gilles the walks were accomplished! The first day just gave us a sample of what was to come - Monreale Cathedral, then ancient ruins at Selinute & Segesta & capped off with a drinks & dinner at our lovely hotel. The next night on the terrace we were nearly blown away with the Sirocco. Mountains & Lunches. Gilles insisted that a tin of tuna & beans was just right for carrying up Cofano & in fact every day we needed a packed lunch. We were horrified & purchased quite unsuitable delicacies like carrots tomatoes cheese ham olives strawberries cherries caponata etc! However by the last few walks, 3 of us were enjoying "tinned" tuna!! Shame. I could rave on for 1000 words, but won't. The Hotels all good but Domus Mariae excellent. The new Renault van (driven expertly by Gilles) caused much amusement as Gilles hadn't work out how the key & the back door worked! Syracuse & walking at Pantalica probably my pick of the tour, but all so wonderful that hard to choose a favourite.
