Important Information

  • Driver-Escort Information: We customized this excursion using a driver-escort. A driver-escort is a chauffeur who will drive you around our amazing island. He is knowledgeable, able to provide basic historical information, and he can show you the main highlights. Our driver-escort will take care to give adequate time at all stops and to accommodate special requests when possible. He will assure that your experience in Sicily will be both memorable and enjoyable. The driver-escort is not a Licensed Tourist Guide. Licensed Tourist Guides are the only professionals – with a Regional license – permitted to conduct visits and tours in all sites and museums within a city). The driver-escort cannot escort you inside the monuments because this is not allowed by Italian law. In the case you need a licensed local guide, you must pay a surcharge and we will arrange for one to meet you directly on the spot.
