We had 2 tours with Viator. We’ve enjoyed every moment of it. Our guides Salvatore in Etna food and wine tasting tour and Lizar in Isola Bella boat tour were excellent.

False advertisement
, Aug 2018
Advertisied as a pickup from the hotel. This is what drew us to this tour. After paying for the tour. We were emailed that we would not be picked up at our hotel, and would have to make it there on our own. This is unacceptable. This is false advertising. During the tour , our guide , “ Dario “ spent most of his time chatting with one couple and ignoring the rest of us . Also very little explanations of what we were seeing. Very unprofessional !Not only are we disappointed with this tour. We have been using viator for years. For the money we spent and spend with you. I think it’s time to look elsewhere, Your very dissatisfied customer!!! Joe
No regrets!

OMG- so worth the money. Pickup point was very central. It was us (myself, wife, teenage daughter) and another family that we met at the pickup point. We all got along great and had a lot to talk about. Dario was our guide and was helpful and amazing. The boat tour was fantastic, the water crystal clear and refreshing. Highlight of our trip. No regrets whatsoever.

My daughter and I took the tour in July and it was totally amazing! Dario and Simone were incredibly friendly and explained all the sights to us. We even got to swim off the boat which was a great experience. The lunch after the tour was a delicious 3 course meal and had the friendliest staff. This is one tour worth doing in Taormina.

We met our guide Dario at a central, easy to find location. We were taken by minivan to board a boat where we met the equally charming Simone. These 2 young guys were very knowledgeable, super friendly and made the trip so much fun. They were happy to take pics for us whilst we were swimming at the 2 points where we enjoyed the clear clean waters off the Taormina coast. Views of the coastline and commentary was fantastic. We were given lovely cold fruit salad on board as well as a local wine and when this part of the tour ended we enjoyed a massive 3 course lunch at Isola Bella looking out to sea. A great day. 2 great guides. Would do this day again for sure- highly recommend taking it. It was great value. Perfect
Fantastic Tour!
, Jul 2018
This tour was memorable from beginning to end! Dario greeted us at the meeting location and was very gracious. We were then driven to coastline where we boarded boats and our adventure began. The coastline and views are amazing. We then anchored off shore, swam and enjoyed the company of the other tour participants. After a few hours we docked and had an incredible lunch. This was a highlight of our trip to Sicily!

Great tour on the water. Great fun swimming in two different locations. I would recommend bringing along a mask and snorkel if you have one. The lunch afterwards was also great!
Fantastic tour.
, Jun 2018
Great day. Dario was our guide and was fantastic. Very accommodating, spoke great English. The boat was the perfect size for our party of 6, everyone from ages 12-72 said this was the best part of our 5 days in Taormina. I would book this again for sure. The tour included lunch at a restaurant along the shore which we viewed as a throw away and expected to be poor but we were very pleasantly surprised. Great value overall.

, Sep 2016
the views were quite beautiful and the tour guide and boat operator were very sweet and kind, but the tour was exceptionally long with very little historical info provided about the tour. she is clearly not a historian nor is she well versed in the history of Taormina, as she shared no information, just pointed out the names of the caves or bays that we approached. No mention of the types of fish or habitats, the history etc. It was our anniversary and she brought a bottle of champagne for all of us to share, which was very thoughtful, but were it not for that, the tour was not up to par with any o the tours we've taken throughout Europe and Italy. If you're just looking for a leisurely boat ride of the coast, this was fine.

Good fun, with two swim stops. Stunning scenery of the Taomina coast, finished off with a delicious lunch in a typical Sicilian restaurant on the sea front at Isola Bella. A great day out.

The boat tour was disappointing although the location was amazing. The guide wasn't really a guide and she didn't tell us much about the area or history only the 5 hotels on the coast that we could see There was a passenger on the boat who kept asking questions and she didn't really have an idea.. we barely went anywhere and the bay was incredibly busy, we have to queue up behind several boats to see the caves for 2 seconds and had three swimming points two of which were full of jellyfish, there wasn't a great choice of food or wine and I felt for the price we paid it wasn't great value for money.

It wasn't what expected. The guide was great as well as the lunch and the other people in the group. Just that I expected something better, bigger caves, etc.

We did this tour on a nice sunny Friday morning. We were staying close to Isola Bella and we got picked up bang on time, from there it was just a short drive to Isola Bella. It was 5 of us in total plus Vita who was a great host! She made sure we were all ok, checked whether we needed anything before the boat tour and gave us great tips and information during the tour. The boat tour itself was perfect, the bays and the water around Taormina is stunning! Highly recommend this tour for anyone staying in Taormina, to see the coastline for the water is just beautiful. After the boat tour, we stopped for lunch at Isola bella and food was delicious, a perfect way to end the tour!

The walk down from the park to Isola Bella was very strenuous in the heat of summer!
