Our agent, was very easy to deal with. She accommodated all our dreams and desires in the trip schedule. She was also able to get us tickets to see Electra at the Greek Amphitheater in Siracusa. The itinerary was set out in detail on a daily basis which made it very easy to accomplish seeing almost everything. Our drivers were very professional, friendly and knowledgable. They were more than drivers. They were very informative about the areas and explained details of the country and the sites along the way. Especially our driver throughout Sicily and our driver for the tour of the Amalfi coast and of Napoli. Our guides were exceptional! We can't forget our boatman who gave us a wonderful tour around Capri and to Positano.
The accommodations in all the hotels were excellent. The staffs were very helpful in guiding us during "free" days and selection of restaurants.
There were so many enjoyable memories on the trip. Our cooking class and tour of his wine cellar were exceptional. The architecture of all the churches and duomos and the vista from the top of the Palermo Cathedral were breathtaking. Exploring the Archeological Park in Siracusa was highlighted by seeing the performance of Electra in the amphitheater. The surprise Cooking Fest in Taormina was an unexpected delight. The guided tour of Mt. Etna ended with a fantastic picnic of local foods and wine. The chairlift up to Mt. Solaro in Capri was breathtaking and going through the arch of the Faraglioni on our boat tour was spectacular as were all the colorful grottoes he took us into. While our private tour of Pompeii and the climb up to the crater of Mt. Vesuvius officially ended our trip, our driver treated us to an unexpected tour of Naples and brought us to the best pizza we ever ate.
If we could take our trip again, we probably would extend our stay in Sicily to see Agrigento, Monreale, Randazzo, Ragusa, and an extra day in Taormina and on the mainland to see Sorrento and Salerno. We would not schedule time for the Vendicari Nature Reserve unless it is in the bird migratory period, since we did not see many different species of birds.
