Reviews for Family activity holiday to Sicily, Etna to Isola Bella


review 14 Jul 2019

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

The activities.....body water rafting.

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

Keep away from arathena Rocks and Taormina Park Hotels and don't book accommodation in Naxios, much better to stay in Taormina. Give the snorkeling activity a miss, the 2 people manning the boat could have been better. I would highly recommend booking the Ivano and Vera.

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

No. The hotels did nothing to reduce environmental impact or support conservation. However, I guess our holiday did benefit the locals as all of the support staff on the ground, led by Ivano and Vera our local representatives used local staff and facilities for the sport activities and meals they arranged. The accommodation lack of environmental issues were out of Ivano's & Vera's control.

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

If one excludes the accommodation, 9/10, but taking accommodation into account 4/10. It is a minor point, but I would the lunch, when included in the holiday package to be better, rather than just fruit and sandwichs on 2 of the 3 occasions lunch was included. But, Ivano and Vera made the best of it. I wouLd give Ivano & vera 5 stars for their help, support and all the arrangements, the activities. But with the accommodation included the overall holiday I would give 3 stars (not Ivano & vera fault).
