Pay attention to the level of difficulty attached to the tour, and be realistic about what you can achieve on a sustained basis. if it says it's a Walking Tour, expect to walk A LOT - 4 or more hours a day, every day. If you are not mobile enough to achieve that, don't book that tour - you will just inconvenience everyone else.

Sicily is a fabulous destination offering a diversity of archeological, cultural, scenic and food experiences unique to this part of Italy. The tour itinerary offered us the opportunity to explore Sicily in relaxed style. Our enjoyment of the tour was also greatly enhanced by the local knowledge of our Sicilian tour leader breadth of knowledge and pride in his heritage provided invaluable insights into the Sicilian way of life.

The walking trip was just that with good long distances each day, some across rugged ground (especially Mt Etna), so much to see with plenty of time to commune with fellow travellers. Sicily is an amazing place. Thank you.

To be with a group of like-minded travellers, guided by a local, knowledgeable and enthusiastic guide is a joy. We wouldn't travel any other way, knowing that all is taken care of, we are safe, we are looked after, and we can have lots of laughs and share our experiences with our fellow travellers.

I should mention that I have traveled numerous times with Imaginative Traveler, which I believe you acquired a while back, and I have combined all trips with both companies in the above number.. I have been very positive about this trip because it was excellent. If I did not feel that way, I would l have let know know!

Peregrine Adventures

Our name stems from the word 'Peregrinate’, meaning to migrate, walk or take a pilgrimage – very fitting for our beginnings as a trekking company. Since our inception, we've broadened our horizons and now offer small group journeys in over 80 countries across all seven continents, which can be enjoyed by anyone with an enquiring mind who enjoys getting off the beaten track (without forgoing some of the comforts of home).

We are a company built by travellers for travellers. Take a walk around our offices and you’ll see the empty desks of people out on trips, or hear people swapping stories about a place they have just visited. Land at your destination and discover your tour leader is local to the region.

Wherever you travel with us we’ll take you to the major highlights as well as along the route less taken. This gets you closer to the local people and the culture you came to discover. We promise to share our knowledge and expertise with you, and ensure you will come home with stories you will tell for years to come.
