What to expect
Greet your English speaking driver or tour leader (depending from group size) in central Palermo and climb aboard a comfortable, air-conditioned minivan destined for the sun-drenched towns of Sicily. Admire the splendid Italian countryside as you approach Erice, an isolated medieval town positioned at the peak of Mt. Erice.  Be captivated by illuminating commentary that reveals the legends surrounding Erice, and then capture photographs of panoramic Sicilian vistas as you tour the ambient tangle of Mediterranean lanes. Sample freshly baked pastry in quaint bakeries (at your own expense) before traveling onward to Segesta, another city associated with the ancient Elymian people, and opt to enter the captivating archeological site independently, at your own expense. Once within, discover the ancient ruins at your leisure, appreciating the ancient majesty of the Doric temple, a 5th-century structure that boasts panoramic vistas of the undulating valleys.  Historical knowledge enriched, return to your vehicle and relax during the scenic drive back to Palermo, where the tour concludes.

I highly recommend this tour!!

Exceptional Tour to Erice and Segesta!
Dec 2019 • Solo
Everything about this tour was beyond my expectations! Our driver Michael was the best: thoughtful, organized, courteous and most pleasant. The van for 8 people was very spacious and the views were fabulous even in the rear seats. First stop was the Pasticceria Grammatico Maria for morning sweets as a treat and coffee, if preferred. A beautiful Sicilian pasticceria in Erice, then breathtaking views of the Norman castle and delightful walks through the old village. This part of Sicily is very agricultural, with vineyards and olive groves everywhere. We could see the salt flats by the Mediterranean and the Egadi islands.
A delicious lunch at an Agriturismo vineyard, including many appetizers and busiate pasta with pesto of Trapani. Olive oil tasting was highly informative.
The Greek temple of Segesta is extraordinary with the massive Doric columns and the location amongst imposing hills and vast areas of cultivated farmland. Everywhere you look is magnificent landscape. From the road to the theatre, the views of the temple are amazing. There is something magical about this place with it’s temple standing alone in the hills.
The drive in this part of Sicily is spectacular!

drop dead gorgeous views from Erice
Oct 2019
There are several tours of this type and we chose the tour of sicily day tour for two key reasons: the owners will speak/email with you personally and based upon your preferences, provide appropriate suggestions; and the tour doesn't cancel because the minimum hasn't been reached. To meet our needs, the owners suggested we take the more inexpensive tour - with a driver rather than a guide - but our driver, Josephine, was fluent in English and highly knowledgeable, and actually completing her training to be a guide. The tour itself encompasses the scenic ride to Erice in a very comfortable van with views from all seats (we had a total party of 6), the dramatic views with accompanying descriptions, and a similar ride to the Greek temple at Segesta. We had a very pleasant lunch at a local olive farm, served by the owner. We were there in late October, the weather was low 60's and the summer crowds were absent. Our introduction to Sicily couldn't have been better.

Great guide and day trio
My sister and I joined Josephine (pretty sure it’s spelled wrong) on a day tour to Erice, Segesta, drive by the salt flats in Trapani and beautiful olive grove for lunch and watching the olives get harvested for oil.
She was courteous and knowledgeable. Tremendous knowledge of the island. Comfortable tour van with small group, it’s truly personalized and one of the most enjoyable days of our trip. Erice was incredible. Highly recommend.

A Day of Beauty and Wonder
Oct 2019
I greatly enjoyed this tour from Palermo to Erice and Segesta. The day was perfect! We were lucky to have had a small group of only 5… and the WONDERFUL Josephina as our guide. She is extremely knowledgeable, “tuned in”, entertaining, patient and kind. I’m grateful for all I learned about Sicilian history and culture from her.

The day was leisurely, the ride was lovely…Both phenomenally beautiful Erice, and the remarkably well preserved Doric temple at Segesta are definitely worth visiting. The lunch we had at, Sanacore, a quiet and inviting agriturismo farm in the hills, was absolutely divine! We were the only group there….and we were made to feel special!

I highly recommend this tour to anyone who wants to learn a good deal about Sicily while spending a day full of beauty and wonder.

Thank you again, Josephina! I’ll see you again when I return to Sicily!

Wonderfully varied tour
Sep 2019
Erice was visited in the morning before it became crowded with time for coffee and some delicious local pastries. Excellent leisurely lunch at a country agritourism place. The afternoon comprised a brief visit to a salt farm and enough time to admire the superb Greek temple and amphitheatre.
Star of the day was our friendly and efficient guide and driver, Francesco. Welcoming, informative and helpful. The ideal guide..

Best trip we did from Palermo
Erice was a stunning spot with amazing views. Our guide Francesca was without doubt the best guide we have had. She gave us so much information, and made sure we knew exactly where to go and what to look at. She came with us almost all the time, instead of just pointing us in the right direction as some guides do.
I would recommend this trip, and particularly any trip Francesca guided

A Great Day Trip from Palermo
Jun 2019
We met another couple and our guide in the city center of Palermo and were on our way. We had an enjoyable morning walking around the beautiful medieval city of Erice drove through Trapani and then headed to the amazing ruins of the theatre and temple at Segesta. We stopped for a delicious lunch with authentic homemade food and wine. My Sicilian husband was in heaven! It was a fabulous way to spend a day in Sicily.

Tour of Erice and Segesta
Jun 2019 • Couples
Erice and Segesta were very beautiful and worth a visit. The lunch at the local farmhouse was excellent with plenty of food and nice wine.The van was comfortable and the driver was professional. Although there were 10 of us on the tour, the guide which was provided added very little to the overall tour. She provided litle information about the background to the sites we visited. Even a cursory explanation about the history would have been illluminating. Instead virtually the only information we had was what we could glean from Google, particularly at Segesta, which was disappointing considering the price of the tour.

Worthwhile day tour from Palermo
Apr 2019 • Couples
We really enjoyed this tour. Our guide Josephine was very knowledgeable and easy going. Erice is a quaint village that is definitely a must visit. We didn't spend too much time there but did have the opportunity to walk through the cobblestone streets and up to the Castle. We were also treated to delicious pastries at a pasticcerria upon arrival. Segesta was fascinating. Following Josephine's informative overview, everyone had the opportunity to walk the site at one's leisure as well as walk to the theater rather than ride the bus. The lunch at a family owned farm was multi-course with wine and delicious!!! The mini-bus that transported us was clean and comfortable. Highly recommend!
