 Customer Comments

“All hotels were of a high standard … The cooking class (offered) beautiful fresh ingredients, well presented in interesting but simple ways… having discussed the menu and then visited the market to purchase what was required – for me a definite highlight of the tour. The guides were knowledgeable, friendly and accommodating … We were sorry to leave Sicily; I definitely intend to return
