Speakers Corner CommentsHi Ariadne Thanks for answering but I posted some time ago and in the meantime we have been on the organised tour of Sicily. It was just what I needed and we had the best time ever. Everything just fell in to place: weather was good, there were two other English couples on the tour who we really got on with (all the other people were Italian and very pleasant but my Italian is poor and they could not speak English) and our guide was outstanding. It was perfect! It was the first time we had gone on a organised holiday as we have always done as you say - book flights and do our own thing. That was why I was asking if anyone had been - needed a bit of feed back/reassurance. Last year my life was very challenging and I actually wanted to get away from everything/one and not have to think about anything or make any decisions whatsoever. I desperately needed a distraction but the thought of just sitting on a beach or around a pool was not an option. I so needed not think of anything. As it happens the touring and places we visited were very interesting and we did things we would never have done on our own. The guide was so knowledgeable about everything especially the politics, the buildings and the restoration processes. If I was to moan about anything it would be one of the hotels we stayed at was not one I would have chosen but for two nights it was not a problem It was just the right thing at the right time. I went to Russia with my daughter for a short holiday recently which was totally not organised and we had an amazing time, so I do agree with you, but sometimes we have to do the unexpected.ViewDate:

Speakers Corner CommentsI am new to silversurfers (not a youngster just limited in my knowledge) and was looking to find reviews of their holidays. I just can not find anything! Am I losing it? I really fancy going on the guided tour of Sicily in Summer but would like some idea of what to expect from previous travellers. I wonder if all the arrangements make it stressful; if there is time to chill out and walk around places. As you can gather I am rather laid back.... Anyone any comments on the holiday please.
