Among the sights, you'll see an excellent example of 12th-century Arab-Norman architecture at the Church of the Annunziata dei Catalani, and view the world's largest astronomical clock in the bell tower. Hear from your guide about Sicily's myths and folklore as you pass by the Santuario della Madonna di Montalto.

Our tour guide Cecilia was GREAT! She was very enthusiastic and knowledgeable. I have found that a tour guide can either make or break and tour and she certainly made our day. Really liked all the stops we made and the new information we gathered.

Excellent value for money but a little disorganised.Three different tours in one plus lunch. You take a bus tour then a small train tour and finish with a walking tour of the town, On the train tour we were told to get off in shopping area and would be picked up in 20 minutes. However people on the following trains refuse to get off so we were left at the shopping area for an extended period. That said the tour staff were excellent and it was certainly great value for money. I would recommend this tour as i am sure we were a little unlucky with our problems and they were not the norm.

This tour was combination of 4 activities. City tour bus, train ride, very minimal explanation of clock tour, lunch and a snack. It was not organized well at all and we had to ask what to do and where to go next after each activities. We could have done just fine without this tour. You can get city tour bus and train ride tickets there without any difficulties. City tour bus was worth it as you see the brief overview of Messina. Lunch was at nearby sandwich shop and the waitress was not friendly. She acted as if she is doing us a favor. After the lunch, we were taken to a pastry shop. The guide who took us to sandwich shop was very friendly with smile was the positive.

Not quite what we had expected, but none the less extremely good value. We were taken on an hour's Red Bus tour along the coast by the beaches and a lake where fishermen were standing up to their chests in the water. Half an hour later we took the Bus Tour of the town and after that had nearly an hour's Carriage Ride Tour, pulled by two horses. A super guide and a delightful young lady had accompanied us and finally left us at a Gelateria to have a free sample. A very pleasant way to explore a town in comfort.
