We loved ever minute of the day from visiting the markets in Catania to Mt Etna, Castelmola and the beautiful Taormina Thank you

Our guide met us at our Cruise port and took us to our air conditioned van. Our guide was knowledgeable and enthusiastic. Our group of 6 enjoyed the tour guide, transportation, information, and views of Castelmola, Mt. Etna and Toarmina (including Greek-Roman Amphitheater). We had ample time for shopping and lunch.

The trip to Etna and Taormina was a very special experience. Our tour guide Josephine was able to give us a lot of interesting information. Highly recommended and absolutely to be recommended! It was very comfortable and manageable for everyone.

You have to be aware that it is "only" a taxi service. But that's worth a lot on this island!

Very nice, long tour, but worth it. Taormina beautiful, too little time to see everything.
