This was a great day-trip to take from Catania. Our driver, Luigi, went out of his way to create a great experience for our nice, small group. He also had a picknick already prepared with yummy Sicilian delights and local wine for lunch (a great view of Mt. Etna included).

Our guide- Mr. Antonio was informative and very knowledgeable. He was professional, very engaging and had excellent communication skills. He was very patient and well-organised. With him around you dun hv to worry that u missed any detail of the tour. The lunch at a secluded secret hideout with panorama view was superb. He left us with a memorable Sicily GodFather/ Taormina/ savoca/ castelmola experience. We hope to have you once again when we join other tours. — Taylor & Mikee from Singapore 23/09/19

Excellente excursion avec guide qui se promène avec nous et nous donne toutes les informations appropriées et comme à Taormina il n'avait pas la possibilité de venir avec nous, il a pris le temps de nous donner un plan de la place avec les choses à visités. Une très belle expérience, bravo
