Marvel at age-old quarries and a Roman amphitheater where gladiators fought each other to the death. Afterward, head over to Ortygia Island―a small island that serves as Syracuse's historic center―and nearby Noto, a stunning town filled with exquisite, photo-worthy baroque architecture.

Great guide
, Jul 2022
Nice tour of ortigia and noto. The syracusa part was mostly the archeological park where we were introduced to it and dropped off. Then we met back for ride back to catania
I feel I would avoid this firm
, Jul 2022
Viator's subcontractor tour operator never showed up and only after we called to ask where they where did they tell us they had no record of our booking (despite Viator confirming the day before). When we did call, the sub hung up on is and then when I called again did they acknowledge the problem but without explanation or solution. I would never book with Viator again as there is no accountability for their failures. Always find someone loral for tours. On another note, TripAdvisor, there parent company, has old information all over the place. The Civic Museum in Catania is still listed as being temporarily closed despite it being very much open. It is my opinion that I would look elsewhere for holiday information and bookings.

Very nice day trip

Nice and experienced guide, who drove us to Noto and Syracuse, and showed us everything on those beuatiful towns. I recommend.
Good day trip from Catania

Salvo treated us to good day. This day tour provides the highlights of each place and there was some independent time to shop or eat.

Good trip, the guide wasn’t very knowledgeable . The places visited are worth it. Recommend it, especially in low season when the groups are small
Very happy with our choice
, Apr 2022
If you want to see the highlights of Noto, Syracuse and Ortigia then this trip is a perfect choice. We had a very competent, multilingual guide who gave us a nice mix of history, cultural facts and gastronomic information. A perfect mix between guided tours and free time. For us this tour had a very good price quality balance. Thumbs-up

Our guide Salvatore was extremely knowledgeable! It was just the right amount of History, monuments, and time on our own to explore. Lots of walking, and lots to see!
Informative Amazing and Beautiful

Salvo was knowledgeable and considerate. We were in traffic going and he was patient and taught us along the way.
A guide with a lot of knowledge
, Sep 2021
The most memorable part of the trip is the knowledge of the guide, he was very nice, full of education and with great service in his mind.
Nice but complicated
, Jul 2021
It was good, except we booked an English tour and didn't expect that most of the other travellers were Spanish speaking. It was exhausting to follow and took a lot of time to explain things in different languages. Also the English parts were shorter. Didn't feel too comfortable. Places and guide were nice though.
Definitely worth it!
, Jul 2021
Since I didn't want to take the bus or rent a car, this tour was perfect for me. It was a relaxing time, I got the chance to see so many beautiful sceneries, listen to the stunning stories of a competent and friendly tour guide, ask questions, got some free time to explore the places on my own and experience more of fascinating Sicily!

We had a good driver/guide called Daniele who is a proud Cattanese, courteous and safe driver. The sites visited were interesting particularly the Archeological site to view the Greek amphitheatre.
Day Trip south of Catania
, Jun 2019
We saw as much as possible and all that was needed. The driver/guide was knowledgable and we feel that we had a good visit. With three of us in the front seat, it was a bit crowded.

Our tour guide was a lovely friendly polite guide. He pointed out the papyrus plant found in the gorgeous historical centre of Syracuse, Ortigia, Papyrus is a material similar to thick paper that was used in ancient times as a writing surface. He incorporated some cultural experiences into the tour, sharing the language of local Sicilian dialect. He was patient, understanding, would gladly take some more tours!

This tour was great! Very interesting with a variety of sites, including the Ancient history of Syracuse. I liked the tour guide, Nano. He was very knowledgeable and nice. Ortigia was a jewel with beautiful churches and outdoor markets! Thank you Viator!

Our tour guide, Franco arrived at our hotel on time. He was friendly and very knowledgeable. We had enough free time at each stop. We highly recommend this tour.
Individual pick-up from the Hotel...
, Jan 2018
Individual pick-up from the Hotel was efficient but took time which seems to cut into the days touring. Especially since two guests were located way outside the core of the city. Good for the tour company to flex to these customers but it was a little drain on the rest of us who had to go for the ride. At least on the way back they were the last dropped off after those of us in the center of the city were dropped off. Once the tour started it is great. Out tour guide spoke English with an accent but was easily understandable and the sites and explanations we saw and heard were well worth the time and cost of the trip. I would recommend this to all who want to see the historical part of Sicily.
