Best Of Sicily Tour Testimonials

My friend and I traveled with Michela on the Best of Sicily Tour in May-June of 2019 and what an awesome trip it was! We had not been to Sicily before and this trip showcased the beautiful island in a wonderful way. I felt like we were truly off the beaten path with the excursions and destinations. There were many delightful experiences and one of my favorites was the visit to the small town of Sant' Angelo Muxaro near Agrigento. We explored this charming town of about 1,200 people and then had lunch with a local family. The lunch was outstanding and the family was so welcoming. A lot of what we ate came right from their garden and it was delicious. Another favorite was our visit to the Villa Romana del Casale where we saw beautiful mosaic tiles. We had the best guides-Palermo resident and knowledgeable guide Alessandro and bus driver Sergio from Agrigento were so kind. You could tell they were proud of their island and happy to show it off. Michela was great, very responsive before and during the trip. I would highly recommend this Sicily Tour and loved the fact that it was a small group tour of 10 people, many of whom were seasoned, active hikers and walkers. A perfect vacation!

LAUREL PALMER | St. Augustin, USA

I thoroughly enjoyed my trip to Sicily. Travelling with Rocky Travel was so easy and well-organized. Michela and our local guide Angela always ensured we had enough time to see everything while bonding with other women travelling in the group. The accommodations were well chosen and often located where walking into town during our free time was easy. While in Sicily in May 2023, we had to deal with bad weather, cancel some of our excursions, and replace them with new tours. This was done without any downtime and with options that exceeded my expectations. My experience with Rocky Travel in Sicily was super good, and I highly recommend any tours organized by Rocky Travel.

MARIE-JOSÉe Vinet | Toronto, CANADA

The Best of Sicily Tour was a perfectly planned trip. It hit all the highlights, as well as those out of the way places and local people that you will never find in guidebooks or online. It was with a very comfortable minibus with a friendly group of 10. Our guide, Alessandro, was well informed and entertaining who kept us on schedule along with a superb driver Sergio, both Sicilians. Michela, the trip organizer, also Italian, was extremely helpful and made sure everything ran smoothly. It was a fabulous introduction to Sicily, and I highly recommend it, especially if you are not familiar with Sicily. Very reasonably priced and good value for money. For sure I’ll be back.

VIVIEN TROY | New York, USA

This Sicily small-group tour is an ideal introduction to Sicily's many and varied attractions, ranging from architecture to food to archaeology. Zoom calls beforehand meant I already knew the other participants when it started. The meals were an excellent introduction to Sicilian cuisine. The tour guide was outstanding, and her local knowledge gave us valuable insights into many aspects of Sicilian culture, history and food. Poor weather meant some of the attractions were closed. Our tour leaders, Michela and Angela, organised excellent replacement activities using local contacts and insider knowledge. I definitely recommend this tour to solo female travellers 50+ who want to visit a more unusual destination and make new friends. This was my first tour, and I wondered if I'd like it. I'm now a big fan of small group tours with hand-picked like-minded travellers. I'll be looking out for more!

Marion Halliday | Adelaide, AUSTRALIA

Michela, Angela and Francesco did their best to create and provide a lovely tour of Sicily. Patience and attentiveness were well executed throughout the trip, and no questions were left unanswered. The knowledge demonstrated throughout was much appreciated, especially when we needed to shift gears due to weather concerns. I highly recommend this tour by Rocky Travel. Michela, the organiser, and Angela’s tour guide expertise were exceptional.
