Great tour, even in the summer heat. Knowledgeable tour guide who answered all of our questions. If you do take the tour in the summer, bring an umbrella. You'll thank me later.

We enjoyed a 2 hour private tour 6 adults of the archaeological park in the morning, followed by lunch arranged by our excellent guide, Eva, and then a 2 hour tour of the nearby archaeological museum. The entire experience was pleasant, efficient and very informative. Eva was exactly where she said she would be at the exact appointed time. She had a deep knowledge of the archaeology and the area of Siracusa in general. I woulds strongly recommend these tours to provide a much richer understanding of the history of this fascinating area of Sicilia.

An gracious Austrian lady, Eva Maier, living in Italy was my guide. Every one of my questions was quickly answered, items on the side were pointed out to me as well, even to my surprise the living Acanthus plant leaves at my feet, often carved in marble for column tops and decorations. Historical aspects and architectural details were given which I thoroughly enjoyed.
