Nossa experiência no Globetrotter foi incrível... Conseguimos aproveitar ao máximo de Catania graças a excelente localização que nos permitia conhecer varios pontos turísticos. O horário era sempre respeitado, algumas vezes, quando finalizávamos as atividades antes do horário, éramos liberados. Ficamos em um quarto privado. Danielle nos recebeu super bem, sempre atencioso e sempre pronto para nos ajudar. Ele nos recomendou os principais pontos turísticos, assim como restaurantes... Experiência magnífica, recomendo para todos.

The worst experience ,I have been doing volunteering for 3 months and everything was amazing until I arrive there . nothing is like they said , the apartment is in a bad neighborhood the area is dirty smells like trash you share apartment with 6 and just one bathroom, is 40 C and no fan !!the activities are so heavy is not volunteering is heavy job by free, the staff is rude , and they want you to do amazing and if you have a mistake the make you to do it again , Daniels mom were on you all the time screaming you in italian and telling you that you don’t know who to do it right. Don’t go

Cool, inexpensive city. I made some great friends but it is not the best way to meet people. The apartment was in good condition but the owner refused to buy us fans even though it was on the top floor apartment and over 40C. Reception is not 24 hours. I told them the time I would be arriving but no one was there, and I was left outside with my stuff late at night with no WiFi to call anyone. Apparently this happens a lot. It was an interesting experience had I am happy I did, but you have to have a good sense of humor to enjoy it here.
