An amazing trip, magical days in Beautiful Sicily, in the company of wonderful people, great food, and a very special guide, Fabio, who passed his love for Sicily to all of us
each day was different and wonderful. perhaps favorites were Etna and Zingaro Natural reserve
Cannot think of anything.
An ok trip, The towns were very pretty and the temples were in a good setting.
Walking round the towns and sampling the local food
Ok, but her english was not great and she wanted talk about ancient times and geology too much instead of telling the group the modern side of the island.
Do not book this trip if you are single and under the age of 50 and you wish to stay out later than 10 pm.
One of the hotels we stayed in had no hot water in the shower, which was unacceptable for the price of the trip.
I had a great trip to Sicily with this tour and would never had enough knowledge or time to get to and see half the places the tour took us to.
The landscape, stunning archeological ruins, an evidence of the people's tenacity to survive and strive after political and natural disaster. (See any picture of a fortified medieval hill town or coastal village hanging precariously to the coast)
Our group leader managed to keep us on track and ensure our needs were met with such grace and humour. She was able to make the answer to our questions seem fresh and new. She had a great depth of knowledge about the archeological sites and history of the area being a native of Sicily.
It helped me a great deal to read about the history of Sicily when Sicily was a Greek colony to appreciate the ruins Siracusa and the Valley of the Temples become much more meaningful.
It was my first time on a tour with Exodus I appreciate the small group size. It would not have been possible to see a fraction of what we saw with a larger group. We were very lucky to have a very organized group who were on time for our free time meet ups.
I would consider doing another trip with Exodus again.
After breakfast we enjoy a spectacular guided walk on Mt Etna, Europe's highest active volcano. We hike up past several old lava flows to be rewarded with a dramatic panoramic view of the four craters that make up the top of this famous volcano (3 hours walking, +300 -300m, 8 km).
You are strongly advised to take a waterproof/ windproof jacket, a warm top and to wear long trousers. According to the weather and volcanic conditions there is a chance to climb by cable car and 4x4 jeeps up until 2900 metres.

We spend 8 nights in six locally-owned hotels. All rooms have en suite facilities. The hotels have been chosen for their warm hospitality and their typically Sicilian character.
In San Vito Lo Capo the group my be split across different small renovated farmhouses, which were originally part of a traditional gated complex.
