We had the best guide we could imagine. We really enjoyed the time with Enzo. He explained very well and is a good storyteller of the history of sicilia. He was very attentive, flexible and humorous. Everything in a good balance. The tour was interesting and varied. Well organized. The guide was also punctual and picked us up from the hotel. Our expectations were completely exceeded.

Excellent! We were a group of 8 and I was the only person who spoke English. Our guide was very attentive and always translated and commented everything in English along with Italian and Spanish. Etna experience was super cool! It definitely worth to pay an extra cost to go to the top. Very impressive and interesting. And Taormina is soo beautiful! Unfortunately we didn’t stay as long to be able to swim in Isola bella but enough to visit the city itself.

Amazing

Our guide Alessandro was amazing and very knowledgeable. Due to strong winds and slippery road i decided to not climb the last leg, he came back and remained with me till we boarded the bus. The shop where he took for wine tasting and olive oil and marmalade tasting was amazing. In Taormina i thought the time we spent was less as i had to include lunch also and the trip can be extended for another 1 hour. Although since i had another tour starting, Alessandro made sure i reached on time and he dropped me at the starting point of the next tour sharp at 6 o clock.

We loved every bit of the tour starting from pick up at hotel in a 6 seater car. Very friendly helpful and perfect driver guide who took us around Mount Etna and Taormina. He took us around a fascinating walk round 7 craters if you do not fancy cable cars and further. We loved the tour and it us absolutely worth ! Highly recommended
