      On the whole the tour was good though it felt strenuous at times. The guides and driver did a good job coordinating. The most-used hotel was elegant and well located though it did have problems with air conditioning and hot water. The itinerary could... Show more

      Meals need to be improved, especially dinners. Stop at the mall was waist of time. We were not informed about swimming opportunities so we left our swim attire on the bus.

      Trip to outlet mall was very unnecessary. Planned meals were repeticious snd they had trouble with veggie options. Meals were too late in evening, all after 8 pm. Not enough time in Palermo.

      Was an odd experience. It was like a revolving door of bus mates. We would lose or gain some at different points in the tour depending where they started. Tour was in 3 languages (Spanish, Italian English) which needs to be clear when booking as I... Show more
