We were there on a Sunday and most places were closed, but our tour guide was excellent. He accommodated our needs and was very knowledgeable and pleasant. He really went out of his way to make sure we enjoyed our stay and saw as much as possible. Taormina is a must. Beautiful town, small shops, great to walk around. He took us to Savoca, where the movie, Godfather was filmed. Beautiful scenery had a gelato and walked around. You can visit the church on the top of the mountain.
Very nice man showed us around the resort towns and we added the food and wine option. We got a very nice sample platter of food and cappuccino. No wine was available and you are able to sample almond wine in castlemora without an added fee. All in all it was a very nice day and I would recommend it
