Well orchestrated pickup at the ship pier with a small bus. Sabrina was a great guide giving us just enough of both Castelmola and Taormina and then free time to explore. Both are fantastic sites to visit.

Great tour. Had a bit of trouble tuning my 70 year old ears into the guide's Italian accent.

I've rated this tour just one star chiefly due to the horrible tour director I had on 7/27/18 while cruising on the NCL Spirit. The director's name is Debora, and she had an assistant named Elisa. There were 17 in our group, and although one couple understood English but their native tongue is Italian, Elisa proceeded to translate everything into Italian. This was not the tour I expected bilingual. Debora's bird-like high-pitched voice, in combination with her thick Italian accent, made it difficult to grasp all of what she was saying. In addition, she spoke directly to only the 3 or 4 people who were closest to her,. She didn't wait for the entire group to reach her within hearing distance. Then, she spoke while walking, with her back to the group. She is horrible. Taormina and Castelmola are lovely towns and we might have enjoyed this tour much more had we not drawn the short straw, and been assigned to the van with Debora and Elisa!
So if you do take this tour, I'd suggest you strongly ensure that these women are not your tour directors,

A really good excursion. Chiara was our guide and she was excellent. A few nice little extras in the coach. Well worth doing. A steep flight of steps to get over so not really good for any disabled clients. Wanted to put a review on trip advisor but couldnt get to do it.

Nothing much to say about this tour.
Not for those with walking difficulties.
Too much time wasted at the stops.
Scenery was beautiful.

To use the 3 routes is too lengthy for length of ship stay. We were able to do the orange route direct to blue route. Long distances but great commentary about the country. We might have done the red route as well but got off for lunch and realized the return to the ship would be too close to ship's departure time. They say they won't wait???

Our tour guide Mariarita was very knowledgeable about the area and provided a lot of commentary during the day. We had guided tours of the cities and then had plenty of free time to explore and shop. We were shown a number of spectacular views. A great day.

Enjoyed all aspects of this trip. It was a nice small group of people and our guide and driver were amazing and very personable.
