What people are saying about Taormina

Roberto is an aesthete with such a passion for his subject - Sicily!

We were picked up at 10.30am by Roberto, our tour guide.As we sped along in his battered Ford he explained about the lava, it's use in building and architecture,it's fertile minerals,the importance of the sun,the wind,the rain and the old ways of making wine. We started with a small producer, meeting up with two other couples and their guides.We sampled a white, a rose and two reds, all generously poured, the perfumed white proved to be our favourite of the day. Next we went to a slightly bigger outfit where we sat down at tables and were given a light meal of foccacia, sun-dried tomatoes, aubergine pickled with celery, olives marinated with fennel, small slices of salami and cubes of cheese. Still only the three couples, we sampled a white, a rose, two reds and a red dessert wine. Lastly we went to the Gambino estate, the panoramic view was simply stunning.Pleasantly full and slightly stupified we relaxed in the back of the Ford instead worrying about the cracked windscreen!

Great but communication could have been better!

I absolutely loved the trip to Etna and Taormina. Despite half of our group opting for an English-spoken guide, our driver only spoke Italian. This wasn't a problem- as a group, we managed to get by. My one criticism would be regarding the pick up time. I had to chase for confirmation of a pick up time from the host the night before and eventually was told this would be 7am. However, when I left my apartment at 7am on the day, the driver waiting outside seemed angry- saying that I'd been keeping him waiting for a whole twenty minutes prior to this. Aside from that, we had sufficient time in both areas. 2 hours in Etna, which was just enough to get the cable car to the top and return. Then we had another 2.5 hours in Taormina. I had researched a lot in trying to find the most cost effective trip to Etna from Palermo, and this was by far the best option!

Excellent tour, we loved it! Giuseppe was a super guide

Brilliant tour, would highly recommend it. Our guide - Giuseppe - was really excellent. Very knowledgeable about Mount Etna as well as the history of the towns and villages we passed through. His passion for the area really showed and he made the day hugely enjoyable for us. Our favourite parts were the “technical breaks” Giuseppe brought us on - a real taste of local culture! Would recommend getting the hiking jackets & boots - very windy and slippy on Mount Etna on the day we did the tour. We got to see 5 of the 6 craters and do some lava surfing - would definitely recommend! The canyon was lovely and worth a visit - water was freezing though! Overall a great day and tour, would definitely recommend it.

Guide was difference between a good day and a great day

Etna was natural and beautiful and a bit of a challenge scaling, but well worth the effort . Toarmina was beautiful and the Amphitheatre is a real treasure. However the was made really great due to our guide and driver, Michael. He was very friendly, informative and gave good advice and tips about both parts of the trip. He was very punctual and gave us plenty of time and notice st Rach stop. Nothing was too much trouble and his conversation was also a nice distraction . Can’t give more praise fora great experience, Thanks Michael. From the Liverpool family

Great trip that would have been tricky to organise without the tour

We booked this trip as we wanted a nice easy way to see Mount Etna and get some info from a specialist. We were really happy with the trip, our guide Guiseppi was amazing! Really informative and positive, he seemed really happy to be our guide and genuinely interested in the subject. We did a lovely trek and saw lots of variation in landscape. And it was all topped off with lots of wine and delicious food. Plus, the boot hire was great as we hadn't come prepared for a hike. Very comfy shoes! Would definitely recommend this tour.
