- This was a well organised tour, well paced, and suitable for most people who are reasonably fit. It took us on walks that were very diverse - up volcanoes (my own personal favourite activities), into gorges, into the Nebrodi mountains and close to picturesque Taormina. However, the duration of each walk on the itineray clearly underestimates the time taken to complete each walk. All walks took us about 5 hours to complete. The walk up to Vulcano certainly was at least 3/4 hours, not the 2 hours as advertised. I think it is important to be accurate (as best as you can) with the duration of walks as this information is often the basis of whether or not to go on a particular walking trip. In terms of all the climbing I might rate this holiday as moderate, not leisurely. In fact some days were particularly long so it was impossible to have much "chill out" time on the trip, except for Day 4. The tour guide was excellent throughout. She had great people skills, charm, and excellent spoken English.
