Highly recommend this excursion.

Captain Enzo was excellent. He knows everyone and everything in and around Taormina and was great at pointing out all the sights. He was really communicative and flexible regarding the weather as the original day we wanted to go was really cloudy and windy, so we moved to the next morning with no trouble.

Enzo was an excellent captain! Very knowledgable, personable, and experienced. He took us to amazing locations and shared lots of interesting background information. He also gave us great recommendations for local restaurants and activities. We had a lovely afternoon. Book with him!
