Lovely boat tour that gives you a great overview about the most important sights in Ortigia and Syracuse, which can be seen from the sea. Our guide was really nice and was able to share interesting insights about the history and current state of Syracuse. We would recommend it, especially during the afternoon, as the light is beautiful then 🙂 Specifically good to get also a first idea of the city on your first day.

Really enjoyed the excursion!
Oct 2021 • Friends
We really liked the excursion! The guide was so nice, he told us a lot of interesting facts and took us around the island entering the caves! During this excursion, it was also possible to swim in one of the most beautiful parts, but sadly we didn’t take our swimming suits. We would highly recommend to take the excursion during first days of your stay as you get to know many places and would know what you want to visit later.

Relaxing boat ride and swim on a hot day
Aug 2021 • Couples
Great experience. Tour was nicely catered to the people onboard - a young couple and a group of college students. Guide was flexible and allowed us to spend a long time swimming at a couple spots. Never felt rushed and provided history of the area.

Sea caves and Ortigia boat trip
Aleandro was a friendly and informative guide with good English. With beautiful sea caves and views of historical Ortigia, the tour is diverse and good value. We were delighted to see a kingfisher in one of the caves! Would highly recommend if you have a couple of hours spare in Syracuse.

Pleasant boat trip
Was a nice boat trip through the harbor, to the caves, and Ortigia island. Aleandro was really friendly and gave us a great history about Siracusa and Ortigia; it's always better when the guide is local! We were so happy and thought it was a really cool thing to do. We will definitely be back and will definitely do this trip again. It was perfect!
