    If you're not ruined-out after Pompeii, the Valley of the Temples is worth a visit. Be prepared for a lot of walking so weather is something to be considered. Summer days are very hot and it's not great if it's raining. There are a couple of cafes and toilets along the way but

    We attended this tour in late September, and found it very poorly run. The tour bus had 71 people on it, which was far too much for a pleasant experience. It is a long day of seeing attractions for sure, but it was made much worse by how poorly run and executed this tour was.

    Dear Customer, it is true, we might have a large group during our tours since we offer standard tours with very convenient prices based on the quantities. You can also have a tailor made tour but, of course prices will be much higher. All tours are organized following a precise schedule and it is quite normal to divide a large group into two of 35 people each. That is the peak season in Sicily! Regarding your insinuations we wish to explain that the stop at the gas station is a "must" since many customers ask for toilet and cafeteria and we are obliged to stop. No interest is involved in that. Secondly, the entry fees cannot be included in the price since citizens under the age of 18 do not pay. The tour guide made a favour to you by getting the cash and let you avoid the queue at the ticket counter. We hope we have given a clear explanation. Sicily is very wide and distances are long, you have to be aware before starting the tour that it will be a long day. With this tour you have the chance to visit two different cities of art. That is a very good chance. Warm regards. Guest Relations Manager SAT Group

    What a beautiful place to visit. Even my kids enjoyed this (7 and 9). It was a warm day and a long drive al the way from Taormina but it was worth it!

    Visiting in Febuary was good it was warm but not hot, even then a hat was required. The whole area was stunning. My husband and I were gobsmacked by the views, the architecture, and the technical skills to build such huge monuments. It was certainly worthwhile visiting. The

    Such history! What magnificent structures! I don't think I have to visit Greece after seeing all the Greek artifacts in Sicily. Amazing! So glad we got to visit this UNESCO World Heritage Site!
