    The tour covered most areas I wanted to visit. Good all round itinerary. I found the hotels were good but were out of the way, and not close to town centre or walking distance of attractions, when we had free time. The starting hotel in Aci Trezza... Show more

    I would only quibble with some of the free time allocations. On some occasions a consensus could be sought to extend or shorten the times slightly e.g. by 30 minutes.

    It was a good tour but there is room for improvements. The rooms were a bit tired, my last room did not have hot water and was very dark for overseeing the sea - no view only of hallway. The breakfasts were typical I suppose but there could have been... Show more
