Loved Athens, somewhere I had always fancied visiting and a good day trip. Acropolis was spectacular and we had a very good English speaking guide who took us there then left us with a few hours on hour own which we enjoyed. Would definitely return to Athens again.
This tour was very long although it was fascinating and the guide extremely knowledgeable. However we had a long time there and my husband was bored. At the end of the tour we were invited to a carpet display which we though would last 15 mins or so (so were were told) but it took ages and it was very difficult to leave at the end as they were trying to sell us very expensive carpets and rugs we did not want.
We really enjoyed this tour, we had never been to Sicily before and thought it was beautiful and certainly somewhere we would like to return. We really enjoyed the wine tasting and bought some lovely wine to take home. Our guide Maurizio was excellent. We would have liked longer in Taormina as it was very pretty and looked like there were some lovely restaurants but we had limited time.
