Aside from difficulties with getting our reservation acknowledged once we were in Sicily, this trip was a lot of fun. There are plenty of people "hawking this tour" in Ortigia so you don't really have to make it much in advance. It does require that the weather be calm so you can make it under a certain bridge to go around the island. In fact, our original date was cancelled and rescheduled for the following day. If you have difficulty hearing, you need to sit toward the back of the boat with the boat operator closer to you because he does all the talking. It was beautiful to be on the water and see the island from the water. We all thought it was well worth the time and money.


Excellent boat tour! Our Captain Franco was very knowledgeable, provided the tour in both Italian and English and was an incredibly talented captain.


We enjoyed being on the water, as it was a great weather day. Also enjoyed going into the caves to see what they were like. Lastly, giving the guests the opportunity to jump into the water and swim for a few minutes was enjoyable for those who did it. A few suggestions: 1) Be sure the boat driver/host is prepared to discuss the sights and provide insight into their history. Our boat driver didn't say anything as we were on our way. He had to be asked to start telling us about what we were riding by, and wasn't able to articulate as much as we expected. 2) Make it clear to those who are interested in swimming to WEAR their swim suits under their clothing and bring a towel, as there is no private area on the boat to change clothes.


A fun excursion to see Ortigia from the ocean side, visit the sea caves, and go under the bridge to Siracusa


The guide was very knowledgeable and made the tour fun. Everything the guide showed us was very fun to learn about.


The guide was great! We had fun and a pleasant time! He shared history insights and useful info. The boat was not crowded at all comparing to other tours we saw.

We booked the 10:00 a.m. and were the only ones, thus we experienced a private tour. The driver who was also the tour guide was Franco. He was amazing!


Great afternoon break from touring archaeological sites and museums all morning. Provides a different perspective on Ortigia, and the caves and water clarity were lovely. Wish we had brought swimsuits for a dip.


The event coordinator was very helpful with helping us find the location and where to park. The boat captain, also the guide was very charming and we loved his accent. The swim was our highlight!


Franco was knowledgeable, helpful, and competent. He shared the history of the architectural wonders that he showed us and took us deep into some spectacular caves. He was also responsive questions.
