Linda "For the most part the tour itself was good and the guides were friendly and nice. However, there were a few issues. Firstly there were too many people in the group (50+) which was too much. For this reason people were separated in different hotels and in some cases a few people had multiple hotel changes. They was one night 5 of us were downgraded in a different hotel which was a bit disappointing..."

    My friend was adamant she did not want to go on a bus with more than 12 passengers. We ended up with about 40 but it was no problem. Our English Speaking group numbered about 14 and we mixed with the other nationalities easily. A very well organised Tour... Read more

    We were lucky that we had an all English tour only 30 making for a wonderful experience. Our guide Placejbo was very knowledgeable and well organised. There were minor things with hotels and meals but did not take away from our overall enjoyment of tour.

    We were on the Palermo to Palermo Sicily Tour of September 4-12, 2018. We booked this tour with the understanding that it was a maximum of 35 people. We have to agree with everything John and Brian both stated in the previous reviews. Their review of the... Read more

    Hi Diane, First of all I sincerely apologise for the lacks suffered during the tour ,we take in serious consideration any feedback received from the clients in order to provide always a better service. Thanks to this and other feedback I have taken the decision to stop this tour at the end of October, reorganize it during the winter, apporting some valuable changes, and to not offer it as how is it now for the next season 2019. This tour is not more available and bookable on TR , As you can see wherever, this tour is the only one causing a serious image damage to our company. Unfortunately the Sep 4th departure didn't respect the standard of our services and the experiences we want to offer our clients. Best Regards, O.Gubernati Director Soleto Travel Ltd

    The organisation was shambolic. Two guides changed over. There were 50 people with first guide and 54 with second. The Whiperes did not work all the time and it was impossible for 54 people to get a look at an A4 map. It was also impossible to hear what was... Read more

    Soleto Travel commented on this review
    Dear Sir, Thank you for your feedback, we’re sorry the group size of your tour did not meet your expectations. We are delighted to hear you enjoyed the tour itinerary and the services of our guide, however we understand the size of the tour group is important to many travellers. We can see that although the maximum group size of the tour, listed at the top of the tour page states a maximum group size of 35, and the introduction to the itinerary reads that the group size is variable, the text regarding transport mentions a bus and a minivan for groups with less of 15 passengers. We can understand this might have been confusing, but by no means intended to mislead our passengers. We have updated this information so as to avoid any confusion to future passengers Although groups of 35 are bigger than some other touring companies, it’s also still much smaller than other larger tour operators. We have additionally taken your feedback regarding meals and accommodation, as well as the integration of newly joining group members on board and thank you for giving us the opportunity to continuously improve our customers’ touring experience in Sicily
