About Us

We are a network of Sicily-based licensed guides and specialists (with MA and Ph.D degrees) leading private tours across Sicily for small groups who like to really understand the places they visit. Passionate about our island, we share our knowledge with travelers by arranging in-depth cultural tours with an emphasis on history, art, archaeology, architecture, gastronomy, nature, or a blend of the above.

In the last five years, we have helped hundreds of travelers discover and understand the masterpieces left by nature and the different civilizations that have made Sicily their home during the last three millennia: exuberant cities with their vibrant streets, food markets, noble palaces and extravagant baroque buildings, jaw-dropping landscapes and, of course, some of the greatest archaeological sites in the Mediterranean world: Sican ruins, Punic city walls, incredibly well preserved Doric temples, Greek and Roman theaters, as well as Christian and Byzantine tombs and catacombs.

Undoubtedly, our team is an essential ingredient to the success of our private walks. As professional academics and specialists in various disciplines, our work differs substantially from that which most tour operators offer. Our aim isn't to merely ‘inform’ travelers about social and historical facts, for our tours are interactive and stimulating physically and mentally. We plan them with great care and adjust them continuously.
