A thoroughly enjoyable trip. George, our leader, was super-knowledgeable, helpful, energetic, and fun. His knowledge of people and places gave us experiences we couldn't have duplicated on our own. The itinerary was great - I thought the pace was good and we had a variety of experiences. The only thing I didn't like was that the weather in late April was rather chilly and often wet, more so than I expected. However, traveling later in the spring would have meant missing Orthodox Easter, which was the highlight of the trip for me. We spent it in a rural village, and participating in the villagers' traditions was a rare privilege that I'll never forget. So take an umbrella and some warm clothes and prepare for a special experience. Maybe you'll get the sunshine that we mostly didn't get!

Fantastic look at more "out of the way" spots and wonderful experiences of food and wine. No crowds, just the Sicilian countryside and lovely towns. Traveling in April was fantastic with all the wildflowers. And walking on Mama Etna's shoulders was a highlight!

Exciting and enjoyable from start to finish! It was a perfect combination of unique experiences (Mount Etna - wow!) and activities that were a feast for the eyes and soul in every way. We loved the pace and diversity of the charming villages and the care that was taken in selecting memorable activities and beautiful venues. The trip was relaxing and beautiful in so many ways, and the company was delightful. Sarah put together a wonderful itinerary. The breadth and depth of her knowledge and experience is simply amazing: she literally wrote the book on Sicily We hope Your company has great success in its endeavors!

It really was a wonderful trip. This was our first group trip, and the size was just right. We all got along well which was a bonus. Everything was smooth, and Sarah had picked out some really wonderful things for us to do. I felt like we were getting "sneak peeks" of special things regular tourists don't get to do. We were willing participants for her to try out new things on this trip. The hotels were lovely, and the wine lunches perfect! There was a good balance of planned activities and free time which I appreciated. I will definitely be looking for more trips to go on with Adventures with Sarah!

Wow! This trip was all I hoped for and provided so much more than I expected.Having Sarah as a tour guide made this trip extra special due to her knowledge and passion for SIcily. Also having “known” and followed her for years I felt her ideas of travel were akin to mine. The local guides we interacted with enhanced our knowledge and understanding of the various sites visted. All the accomodations were top-notch- who could argue with a balcony overlooking the sea and a view of Mt Etna! With Sarah’s extensive knowledge of Sicily -after all she wrote the guidebook- I feel that our service at restaurants and such were enhanced. We had more meals than I expected and the quality and quantity were superlative. Sarah shared her knowledge of the area and its vast history making our visits to each location more relevant. Plus she gave us great tips on the best gelato places, granitas, etc. Evening aperitvos in Ortigia catching the sky behind the Duomo as it changed colors with the setting sun was a most memorable experiece. It was great being part of a small group that shared the same love of travel and we enjoyed some good laughs along the way. I had 2 prior trips to Sicily cancelled and the 3rd time was the charm. Fate maybe that I should finally get to Sicily the way it should be experienced- with the lead guide who has a passion for it, local guides that care about their native homes and with fellow travelers who were great traveling companions. As much as I read about SIcily and its history, learning first hand, seing the sights ( esp the archealogical ones) and understanding more about the culture through food and customs enriched me so much more. Thank you for all that went into making this such a memorable tour.
