Horseback Riding Private Tour in Sicilian Countryside and Traditional Lunch at Farmhouse on Etna Slope
"we were on a cruise and decided to do something different than the normal "mt. edna tour". Our guide Maurizio spoke almost fluent english, was a geology expert, and grew up in the local town. We felt like we got the turn Sicilian experience by going out of the commercialized town and into the countryside- it was a bit of a drive but we got SO MUCH information about the city, the island, the history, etc... it was one of our favorite tours. - note that you actually have lunch at a small famous restaurant on a farm (we thought we'd be in someones back yard or something). but the food was incredible and we were the only ones there so it was great! 100% recommend this"..."

Having the historical context intertwined with the pop-culture components made the day so much better, and Fabio's knowledge was unbelievable. As if the sites weren't enough, some truly local foods (Arancini!) at a beautiful cafe on the sea just capped off an incredibly interesting, exciting and educational day. I couldn't recommend enough this tour as a way to learn about not just the Godfather locations, but about Sicily as well!"..."

Tour to Etna Volcano and Taormina from Messina
"We unfortunately couldn't make it up the mountain to tour Etna being that a snow storm came in the night before and the roads were treacherous. Gino tried his best to drive through it but it became too much for our vehicle to deal with. With that being said, our tour guide Antonella and driver Gino did the best they could to make our trip worth while! Antonella was very upbeat and pleasant and also very knowledgeable of the area. We all had a great laugh when things weren't going as planned because she kept us all positive and that's what matters most! Gino was a fantastic driver and made sure to stop along the way so we could take pictures. All in all, we really enjoyed out visit to Sicily and hope that when we return, we are lucky enough to be joined by the same tour guides! They even topped off our trip by giving us each a famous Sicilian cannoli to enjoy. Thanks again to Antonella and Gino for making our trip AMAZING!"..."
