Daytime (9am) private tour of the valley of the temples

Excellent touted guide of the valley of the temples by Michele. Hugely knowledgeable (about everything!), we got so much more out of the experience with Michele. The site is quite large, with fairly limited information, so I would thoroughly recommend a guide to get the most out of it. The site also contains a folly, so you don’t want to spend all day examining a folly when there exists remains of temples over 2400 years old just around the corner. We got to the site car park at 9am, when the site was very quiet, and we’re finished by 11:30am.

Would throughly recommend Michele and his tour.

Breathtaking atmosphere sorrounded by the history
Aug 2019
Arrived in the nice Agrigento with the first intent of paying a visit to the "Valle dei Templi", our guest recommended to book a guided tour with this operator. Luckily, the next available was the one starting at 6.30PM. The guy which assisted our group was an archeologist, absolutely informed about everything happened in the different ages in the whole Sicily. At the same time, he knew when it was the time to break the "lesson" with some small jokes. I don't know if it has been calculated, but we reached the "Tempio della Concordia", right in the moment of the sunset, having the opportunity to take amazing pictures. Every single temple is wonderful, with a fantastic story behind and having the possibility of seeing each of them first with the soft light before the sunset and than illuminated by the moonlight, I consider this as the best time I had during my holydays in the amazing Sicily.

Michele Gallo Perfect Tour
Apr 2019 • Couples
Two hours touring Agrigento’s Valley of the Temples flew by as Michele led us through time at each temple site. He is recommended in Rick Steves new Sicily tour book and acknowledged for his help with the book. He did not disappoint. I particularly appreciated the way he explained the site then let us have some quiet moments to think and explore. He also knew about the plants and trees in the area and sent us on a nice walk through the olive trees to find the museum. Definitely a 5 star tour.

Simona provided us with an excellent overview of the valley and its history and then in detail by each temple. Very engaging and knowledgeable on the area and the history. Brought the valley alive with visual representations of the possible reconstructions and the story of the Greek and Romans.

Valley of the Temples walking tour with Michele Gallo
May 2018 • Couples
We arranged our walking tour of the Valley of the Temples with Michele Gallo before we left home based on TripAdvisor reviews. We met Michele at the agreed upon time and place with no problems and he took us on a fascinating and informative 2-hour walking tour. Michele was extremely knowledgeable and a great communicator sometimes using visual aids that he brought with him that showed the ruins as they were at the time they were built. He brought to our attention things we never would have appreciated on our own and answered in detail all our questions. We would highly recommend Michele to anyone planning to visit the Valley of the Temples.

Valley of the Temples tour with Michele Gallo
Mar 2018 • Couples
The Valley of the Temples is spectacular and can’t be fully appreciated without a truly passionate and knowledgeable guide like Michele Gallo. He was a wealth of information, unhurried and was patient with all of our questions. Mr. Gallo made the Valley of the Temples a real highlight of our Sicily trip!

Our visit to the Valley of the Temples was a wonderful experience, made better by our excellent tour guide, Michele. He is a wealth of information and presents its in a way that is easily understood. This is not small feat given the millennia of history in this area. The two hours with Michele set us up to further explore the archeological site for the rest of the day.

Excellent 2 hour guided tour of Valley of the Temples
Sep 2017 • Couples
My wife and I visited the Valley of the Temples and engaged Michele Gallo as a private guide. It is definitely worth it -- Michele took his time as we walked from Temple to Temple, explaining the history, archaeology, geography, politics, and architecture in an engaging way, answering our questions clearly, and delving deeper into areas of interest. We came a long way to visit this beautiful, historic place, and Michele made a big difference in our fully appreciating what we were seeing.
