Angela kindly waited for us as we were running a few minutes late to join the tour. The group was quite large and it was difficult at times to hear what Angela was saying. However, her information was very interesting and we enjoyed the walking tour.

I often use Get your Guide to visit the cities and the service is good and the guides are prepared. In the case of Syracuse we had the guide all to ourselves. Nice tour, even if compared to other cities the content is not very much.

Our guide was superb, entertaining & knowledgeable BUT there were too many people on the tour given that we didn’t have headphones to listen which spoiled the experience

Everything was great, the guide was knowledgeable and had a sense of humour. The part when we were asked for an obligatory tip wasn’t at all expected nor was it correct.

We were very happy with the tour with the guide Totò Ficarra, it was very interesting, enjoyable and comprehensive.
