Review for: Classic Tour of Sicily

Recently booked 6 clients on the Sicily mini carousel tour from Catania to Palermo. I have personally done this trip before and loved it. My clients came back absolutely thrilled with their time in Sicily on this tour. Their guide was amazing, the accommodation fantastic and the value of this tour is well worth it.

Hi Cristina, we really appreciate the time you've taken to leave your review. Catania to Palermo is our shortest of 14 Sicily Tours and gives our guests a wonderful snapshot of that amazing island. I'm glad they got in before the crowds, because Sicily is booking! Regards Paul @ Sun Island Tours
