Ricardo was such a nice young man to spend the day off and on with. Taxi was comfortable and he was informative. So much nicer than being herded on and off a bus.

Renato is great! It was fun bantering back and forth with him about Catania vs. Palermo. Renato, it's arancia! We had a wonderful day taking our time strolling through Taormina. Taormina is as enchanting as I remember. Thank you, The Pomares Family

We Loved Sicily and this Tour!

Luca was a great driver and tour guide! Right away he talked to us about the plan for the day that originally included Mt Etna. After talking about the pros and cons of the long drive to Mt Etna - we decided we would rather see more of the local life - it was awesome that we were able to customize the trip and we maximized our experience by far! Before taking us back to the cruise ship, Luca made a special stop for us to get fresh cannolis - AMAZING!!!

What an amazing trip!! My party of 6 and I had a wonderful time with our tour guide on our trip to Taormina and Mt. Etna. The car was spacious and comfortable, and our guide was amazing. He was knowledgeable, patient with us and a lot of fun. We enjoyed this trip and highly recommend this company to others. The driver was where he was supposed to be, on time--and greeted us with a great smile. I can honestly recommend this tour to all--you will not regret it!

This tour was a little bit more than we wanted to pay but it was terrific. Our driver tailored the day to our wants and needs, was there right on time in fact, a little bit early which was great and got us back to our ship exactly when we asked him too. Taormina should be on your list of must see places in Sicily. It was beautiful with wonderful food, views and shopping.

OUr guide, Tommy, was excellent. We very much enjoyed this excursion. He was right on time picking us up and made sure we made it back to our cruise ship within plenty of time. He was quite knowledgeable about the area, history and so forth. We learned a lot, saw a lot, and were entertained. I would recommend this co.
