What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

The Mount Etna day was my favourite.   Trekking across the vast mountain in a selection of key spots that were picked for their natural beauty and interest.

What did you think of your group leader?

Dawn til disk accompaniment helped our enjoyment because Fabio also booked a table each evening, with the group's agreement, and chose different sorts of restaurant each time.   Helped to have a translator with us!   He was seemingly very laid back and relaxed, although he never missed a trick and was very dilligent of our safety.   Very informative without going into too much detail.

Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

Temperature-wise, September is the perfect month to visit.

Is there anything else you would like to add?

The day spent in Palermo was a bit of a low-point frankly:  it's not the most beautiful, and I think we could have easily spent an extra day in one of the other locations en-route.  Others on the trip seemed to concur.  The rest of the group were lovely people.
