      About this trip

      Complicated, misunderstood, generous, outrageous, sensual and seductive, Sicily is pure opera. If you think you know Italy but haven’t been to Sicily, you are in for a mind-bending treat. 3000 years of history piled up like a sweet cassata cake is waiting for your exploration. And the food. It’s all about the food. This tour is part of a duo, you can pair it with our Sicilian Pleasures tour for the full Sicilian experience.

      Loved the trip. Interesting, fun, and a great group to travel with. Morocco (as with other developing countries) is not easy to navigate. Our guide Hicham did an exceptional job. He was always one step ahead and kept everything safe, fun and interesting.

      We combined Highlights with Pleasures; this review is based on that. Kudos to Sarah and her team for putting this amazing journey together! But for a weather-based cancellation of a boat day trip, this tour was flawless. Bravo to the team for selecting quality lodging; the food along the way was remarkable and it showed on a 2 inch waistline increase-she’s right about bringing fat-pants. Travel was efficient and comfortable and our drivers were professional and proficient. Sarah’s adherence to just 16 people was great and the groups in both tours were fun and adventurous. Sarah and later, Giusi, were attentive, instructive and just damned nice guides! When we fell in love with a certain cookie that was used in a wine pairing, we left the winery in search of the cookie! Once Giusi located the the aforementioned cookie in a shop seriously off the tourist track where no bus could go, we 16 pathfinders dodged local neighborhood traffic to visit that bakery, undoubtedly bringing a smile to the owner who likely did very well that day. We were intrepid and our mother hens rose to the challenges. There was plenty of free time along the way to explore sites and cities. Yes, Sarah has a serious affinity for temples but there was a medley of things to see from salt flats and wineries, to castles and ruggedly beautiful coastlines. If not for the carabiniere sending us off the island for our collective crimes against gelato, cannolis and espresso, we’d likely all still be there :) Sarah, if you’re reading this, keep bringing us back to this delightful and magical island with diverse opportunities and those slated to receive our empire upon our demise will have less money than they thought. In today’s parlance, this trip was EPIC and we have YOU to thank for this along with the Number ONE planner in this family-Charlie. Regards to Otto—thanks again for the trip of a lifetime!

      Our trip was enjoyable. We had times of relaxation and times we were busy visiting sites; we enjoyed both. Due to personal reasons, Sarah left the tour midweek. Guigi took over and did a great job considering the circumstances. Our accommodations were top notch and the cities/villages in which we stayed were picture perfect. We thoroughly enjoyed the Sicilian food and wine, delicious!
