    Marco was so knowledgable about Ortigia! I studied abroad in Ortigia three years ago for six weeks, so I knew a lot of the history but there is always more to learn. Marco answered all of our questions and showed us all around the island. His English was great as well! The food and wine tasting is worth the extra money. We tasted 5 different Sicilian wines and got a traditional Sicilian aperitif of cheese, olives, and meats. We were so full afterwards that we didn't even need dinner!
