We wanted to bike in Sicily! We wanted to celebrate Susan's 60th birthday! And, we wanted a company who could create an itinerary and an experience that satisfied our vegan lifestyle. Other tour companies we contacted didn't really customize they tried to fit us into their "box", their set itinerary.
When we called Siciclando, we got a different experience. They were personable, accommodating, and flexible. They not only understood our needs, they were genuinely interested in making those needs happen on tour. They created a proposal that matched what we asked and they made recommendations that made sense. We appreciated their expertise.
On tour, they made that itinerary come to life. They had Valentin be our guide and he could not have been more perfect. Because he is also vegan, he knew how to get us great food. He took great care of us at the table and on the bikes. On tour, he adjusted the routes to give us more miles on specific days. The custom tour experience with Siciclando was perfect from our first discussions through the end of the tour. In fact, we already scheduled our next tour with them in Portugal and then another tour in the Dolomites!
"Being able to see Sicily on a bike, stopping in villages and talking to people, eating great food, seeing the cultural and historical sites, touring the Aeolian Islands — there isn't one single thing — we loved the whole experience!
One of the reasons we booked with Siciclando was Dario's commitment to meeting our dietary needs. By assigning Valentin, a vegan, to be our tour guide we were totally taken care of. We cannot praise Valentin enough! He was fantastic!
Overall, the tour met our requirements and exceeded our expectations! Dario listened to us and Valentin followed through to make the whole trip exceptional and truly memorable.
