Please don't trust this tour operator, They changed the date of our tour to a day we could not make but still would not refund our money. We already hade another tour booked on the revised day,
Great tour

Great tour, although the weather was quite bizarre (rain, sun, rain again), the tour itself is a very nice one
Could be more interesting

Michael was pleasant enough however the choice of transport we felt was unsuitable The so called Minivan was in our minds a SUV and not a genuine tour vehicle. As there were 8 + the driver we were crammed in like sardines resulting in an uncomfortable experience for all and in particular the people in the back seats. The content of the tour was good with the exception of the salt plains particularly at this time of year as there was no wild life making the stop some what boring. The small town of Erica was lovely and worth the journey.
What not to do.

Very disappointed with the tour company...we did not have a tour guide to explain the sights we saw either at the locations or along the way. The person who came as a tour leader was not very well organised or helpful.....we were left to our own to discover the attractions.The bus driver and the tour leader spent most of the trip talking quite loudly with each other and seemed oblivious to the fact we were also on the bus. We were then dumped at some point in town and told us make our own way back to our accommodation without us knowing where in town we were.while on the bus we were given no information on the attractions or what we would expect. We also had to chase the tour company for reconfirmation of our booking and pick up time late the afternoon before.

Dear Costumer, Your opinion is very important for us. Thank you for your help. Warmly Peter
Amazing day trip

Three historical sites in one trip. Micheal our driver was a gem, he was punctual when picking us up from our hotel. An execellent guide with lots of useful tips. He include everyone and looked after us all very well. He deserves a big pay rise.

Excellent tour from Palermo to see the Segesta ruins and Erice. Wish the Erice stay was longer, although there was enough time to have a sit-down lunch and walk through and shop. If you ask me, the salt pan trip was unnecessary----just have a good visit to Segesta in the morning, and a longer stay in Erice, since there's more to see, do, and eat there. Nevertheless, a great value for money as a day trip from Palermo.

The visit to Segesta was great and the temple and ruins were well worth seeing. On the other hand, where were the Salt Pans. If it is not the right season, don't offer the tour and then disappoint the paying clients. Erice was interesting, but having visited my share of medieval villages, this was only average.

The visit to Segeste and Erice was great. In contrast, the visit to the salt pans was interesting, but not worth the drive to the place. Our tour leader was Michael and he provided us with an excellent background of the history of the places we visited.

The Salt Pans aren't really worth the effort to see but Segesta and Erice were fantastic. Michael was our driver/guide and he was very professional and knowledgeable. It was a small group and we quickly became friends. It's a nice way to spend the day outside the madness that can be Palermo.

Driver on time to pick us up. Very pleasant and helpful. Good driver. Van comfortable. Small group. Surprised that we had to pay for our own entrances and that there was no guide. We paid about 50 each which was expensive. In other countries we have had guides with us as well as a driver! Reluctant to purchase another trip because of lack of a guide.
