    We arrived at several site-seeing locations very late in the day. We had barely 30 minutes before dark in Alberabello. The shops were closing up just as our brief tour ended so we had no opportunity to shop or browse around. We had a similar experience at Agrigento at the valley of Temples. We did not see much of anything before it was dark. At our walking tour of Palermo, we could not hear our tour guide. A walking tour with 50 people is not possible to keep everyone together. We should have had headsets, as did the many other tour groups that we saw. After our rushed walking tour, we arrived late at the restaurant for our group dinner. The food was disgusting and we had to leave before we were served dessert because our bus was waiting to take us to our hotel. The hotel in Palermo was old, had mildew in the shower, the beds were hard and threadbare. The hotel location in Palermo was not good...garbage in the streets where we observed a guy urinating against a garbage bin ouside the hotel. We did not feel safe out after dark. In Taramina, the boatride was cancelled because of high winds. On previous tours, our tour director has always had alternate plans. In this case, Vivien was too busy arranging a get-together with her friends and family and did not care that her tour group was left abandoned. In general, the hotels were barely acceptable, the group dinners were shoddy. The days were not well planned. We travelled for most of the day with very little time to sightsee at the end of the day. Vivien knew that some of us were leaving the tour group in Palermo, and some were leaving in Naples. Not everyone was doing the seventeen day tour. She never said goodbye to us or acknowledged that we were leaving. She never gave us the tour survey or complimentary gifts that we were supposed to receive, and therefore we had no opportunity to say Thanks or give her or the bus driver a tip. This was our fourth guided bus tour and by far the least enjoyable.
