review 18 Sep 2018

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

Learning cooking, fish/produce market to buy food.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Content excellent but you do need to be moderately fit as Sicily is extremely mountainous, hills can not be avoided they provide you transport, which they did when needed, but means you miss the on foot experience. I was ok . Take hand sanitiser and insect repellant.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Yes, guide clearly knew lots of people and took business to them. Not so sure about supporting conservation but Sicilian towns clearly took recycling seriously.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

Loved food and drink content, except cheese making farm which seemed not completely hygenic to me. Archaeology excellent. Personally there was too much sitting during travel which I found very uncomfortable due to heat which was more than I expected in September. Would have much preferred getting about out of doors as in Roman villa visit. I would look for a more physically active food experience with less miles travelled next time. Probably others enjoyed it more than me. All guides were excellent, as was our leader.
