Marco Was An Excellent Guide
May 2018 • Couples
Marco of Prestelli Tours took us on a visit to the Siracusa Archaeological Park and then a walk through Ortigia, the "old town" island area of Sircusa. We were interested in learning about the ancient history of Siracusa, and Marco delivered. Marco was friendly, extremely knowledgeable, and took the time to patiently answer our questions. We greatly enjoyed the historical facts and legends that Marco told about the history of Siracusa and the artifacts we visited. We highly recommend this tour and Marco.

Dear Nino, warm greetings from Sicily! Thank you so much for sharing such a great feedback! I've passed your beautiful words to Marco, and he is absolutely happy to hear that you enjoyed the private tour of Neapolis Archaeological Park and Ortigia. When you are in Sicily next time, we would be glad to offer you other private tours - for example, private tour of 3 Etna wineries or Etna private tour from Syracuse. Just let us know, and we will arrange accordingly. We look forward to welcoming you to Sicily again soon! Warm regards, Nadia
