IMPORTANT: A number of independent "guides" in Sicily offer excursions (driving you from place to place). Unfortunately, most of those found on the internet are not licensed as tour guides, tour operators or taxi drivers. This means that they probably lack accident insurance that covers a client who (for example) incurs an injury while walking from the guide's parked car to an archeological site, such as the temples at Agrigento and Segesta. Worse yet, some of these "guides" may deceive you into believing that they are licensed when they are not. In Italian law, only a properly licensed company qualifies for the insurance described. In Italy the tourism/travel industry is highly regulated for your protection.
