Secret Italia Sicily Tour Absolutely THE BEST!!
Aldo, Sorry for my delay but I came home to a wedding and out of town guests! I have nothing but the highest praise for Rosaria and the entire trip you planned for us in Sicily Apr 16-27! It far exceeded my expectations and I know that much of that is in the planning on your part, but we especially loved Rosaria. She has such exceptional charm, knowledge, and a love of Sicily. She was engaging, witty, and extremely exuberant EVERY SINGLE day! We never tired of her vivacious enthusiasm. Surely she is THE BEST and we felt so very lucky to have her be our guide! The hotels were all superb. Loved especially the Villa Schuler and the Maniace in Siracusa. The country hotel with its lovely gardens and view of the temples was special too. We liked staying in one place more than one night, and 3 or 4 nights in these fine places were terrific. Antonio was a safe and fun bus driver. His smile greeted us each day, and the comfortable Mercedes bus with seat chargers for our phones and devices was a bonus! The food was amazing, and so plentiful that after a 4-course lunch, we could not eat supper, but gelato was never far away. So, in this way it was very economical. I think I only paid to have a meal out once or twice, and it was never as good as the ones Secret Italia had provided. We loved the experience of having a meal with a Sicilian family, as well as the beautiful meal at the vineyard and the wine and olive oil tasting with the Baron. You have truly captured the best of Sicily, and I will recommend this company to many friends. Please know that we all left Sicily after many beautiful sights and wonderful experiences, but we will especially carry our friendship with Rosaria in our hearts forever! We hope she will come visit us in Charleston, SC. Please share this with her. Best wishes for many more perfect Sicily trips!
