“I would recommend Experience Sicily to my friends and family because it was a well planned trip with unique activities, great lodging choices, wonderful meals, fun companions, and excellent tour staff.”

“Throughout our trip to the Amalfi Coast, we could feel Allison’s terrific attention to each and every detail…as if she were there with us handling everything personally.  We were constantly saying “Allison hit it out of the park on this one….”

~Sharon from Lititz, Pennsylvania


“Allison led us to a fantastic agriturismo place in Cammarata called Casalicchio. It was in the mountains surrounding Cammarata and it was picture perfect. The rooms were very clean, the views were straight out of a painting and the food was some of the best we’ve ever had. In fact, our most memorable activity on our trip was eating a four hour meal at this agriturismo. There was no menu and food and wine just kept showing up. It was by far one of the best meals I have ever eaten.

“I would recommend Experience Sicily to my friends and family because of the professionalism of the way Allison handled our trip and the knowledge she has of Sicily.”
